These are the Best Milk Frothers We’ve Reviewed This Year

Breville BMF600XL Milk Cafe

Breville BMF600XL Milk CafeBreville is a company that is respected in creating domestic appliances but also known for their dedication to coffee-crafting gear as well. Thier frother is the only one on the market that allows the user to set both the temperature of your milk and the amount of foam you wish to create simultaneously using the circular dial found on the side of the apparatus.

The Breville BMF600XL Milk Café also gives you the ability to create enough foam for up to three big cups of coffee with its huge capacity, and the foam control is  The Breville comes with two interchangeable frothing disks. The first one is used to create smooth latte micro-foam and the other for a dense cappuccino foam. Made from a striking stainless steel design, which is also dishwasher safe.

Since the size of bubbles you’re putting into the drink greatly affect the end result, it’s worthwhile to have two options to make whatever drink you’re looking for. The Milk Cafe uses induction heating and turns itself off once the desired temperature has been reached to deliver perfectly steamed or frothed milk every time.

Nespresso Aeroccino Plus

Nespresso Aeroccino PlusIn terms of value and its ability to create a nice dense foam, the Nespresso AeroccinoPlus is a fantastic addition to your kitchen. A jug style frother, this using centrifugal force inside the Aeroccino to create a froth with your already pre-made beverage. Many prefer this style over the wand as it feels more authentic to what one might experience in the cafe.

That’s for you to decide, however, this jug frother has a heating element which will help keep your beverage warm in the process.

Epica Electric Milk Frother and Heater

 Epica Electric Milk Frother and HeaterThe Epica uses a motorized whisk that attaches to the bottom of the jug to create foam. Further, it only has one whisk attachment that creates dense cappuccino foam. Often, milk frothers leave a milk crust at the bottom of the jug so it’s essential to clean it after each use, so not to the effect the taste of the next batch of foam. Another difference that favors this Epica milk frother is that it’s easier to choose between cold or hot frothing as it has two distinct buttons – I think that’s a bit more user-friendly.

Kuissential Slickfroth 2.0

Kuissential Slickfroth 2.0Though Kuissential is known mostly for dining wares, this milk frother creates a creamy, perfect froth. This is a durable handheld milk frother that features durability, ease of use, and frothing capabilities. The SlickFroth 2.0 comes out on top for those points.

Cleaning up after use is as easy as running your SlickFroth in hot soapy water and rinsing. Simply load it with batteries and froth in a tall canister. Now you’re able to froth any milk of your choices and make refreshing and warming drinks in a flash.

MatchaDNA Handheld Frother

 MatchaDNA Handheld FrotherThe MatchaDNA Milk Foamer quickly garners foam in seconds with its impressive workflow. This allows you to create fluffy and aerated milk-based drinks hot or cold. Handheld, battery operated with no chord to impede you, this is an easy to clean Milk Frother with ease of operation at the forefront.

Need frothy foam in seconds? Aerate milk-based drinks even add a little cinnamon and or honey added to prepare a comforting before-bed treat. A stainless steel shaft and whip adorn the mixer. The Matcha DNA handheld electric milk frothers are very easy to use, you might trick friends into thinking you’re a professional barista. Keep in mind that hot chocolate is vastly better when it’s prepared with foamy milk rather than water.

Bean Envy Handheld Milk Frother

Bean Envy Handheld Milk FrotherNot all Milk Frothers are created equal. Bean Envy’s electric handheld Milk Frother wand is a beautiful addition to the kitchen with a seriously impressive functionality. This wand style frother is not only ergonomically sound, but it’s elegant and stylish as well. Constructed to last, is made of rust-resistant stainless steel.  Additionally, it’s run by a powerful 19,000 rpm motor that is surprisingly quiet.

If you’ve gone with the wand style frother over the jug then here’s some insight into the process. This is quite a handy device if you’re looking to make crafty beverages at home.

To get a proper milk froth with your chosen piece of gear from our list, first, pour the milk into the jar or canister. Fill your canister with as much milk as you normally use in your coffee, but no more than half full so there’s room to make some foam. Then blend with the wand of the frother until the milk is frothy and has roughly doubled in volume, 30 to 60 seconds. It also can be used to mix hot or cold drinks, blend your favorite cocktail, or even whip eggs.

Often milk frothers are not dishwasher safe and have to be rinsed after each use to maintain it, as a layer of crust can build up on the bottom of the frame. So do your due diligence to clean them.

The 4 Best Electric Milk Frother and Heaters I’ve Tried

Now, while we all love good frothers, handheld models often become too tiring to use and we long for something that’s entirely automated. Naturally, such a thing must also be available- and that’s exactly what today’s article is about.

Gamble Bay Coffee understands that several people might need several things and that’s why we try to cover all the topics so that we can have something for all of you- and we try to keep all of our articles informative enough for everyone to learn at least something new from each of them!

What are the best models?

Once you have decided to go for an electric milk frother and heater, you might find a lot of models out there and might be confused as to which one you should buy. You’ll find model after model, each seemingly better than the last and you’ll just feel overwhelmed by all the features that they appear to offer.

But once again, there’s nothing to worry about, because you have Gamble Bay Coffee on your side. In today’s article, we are going to take a look at the main models that are actually worth looking at. So, lets see the models that we have shortlisted.

Gourmia GMF225 Cordless Electric Milk Frother & Heater

Let’s begin today’s list with a beautiful product from Gourmia. For those who aren’t aware, almost all the products that Gourmia sells are unique in one way or another- and this model is no exception to that. This can easily be understood if we take a look at the main features of this model, which are:

  • This model boasts of a detachable base that allows you to use it as a server for easy pouring, making this a versatile model.
  • This model is super simple to use and really functional. The lights show the status of the heating or frothing of the cold or hot milk.
  • And of course, there is a non-stick coating that makes it super simple for you to clean up once you’re done frothing or heating your milk, making it a great choice for just about anyone!
  • This model is among the upper end choices, but given the uniquely high level of versatility, functionality and utility which all come together, I’d say that it is worth going for.

Eurolux Pro XL Electric Induction Milk Frother and Heater

Then comes the Eurolux Pro XL Electric Induction Milk Frother and Heater, a model with lots of praise from those who have had the chance to use it. But that’s no reason to blindly go for it and so we take a look at the main features that this model offers you with.

  • One of the first things to keep in mind is that it’s one of the most expensive options out there, so if you’re on a really conservative budget, then this probably isn’t the model for you. This point must be mentioned at first so that people who are on a conservative budget can move on.
  • This model has a super fast heating time owing to the induction technology that it comes with. It’s a great option if you’re looking to get your coffee or milk heated up and/or frothed quickly.
  • This model has a 250 ml capacity for frothing and a capacity of 425 ml if you’re just heating.
  • This model has also been made from pro grade stainless steel and is entirely dishwasher safe, ensuring both durability and ease of cleaning.

Philippe Taglioni Automatic Electric Milk Frother

Let us now talk about the Philippe Taglioni Automatic Electric Milk Frother, one of the models with the highest number of market sales, right now. This model also boasts of quite a few features that are indeed lucrative, such as:

  • First of all, this model also has only one button with no settings to take care of. While it lacks versatility on one hand, it makes the machine super simple to use on the other.
  • This model is made of durable stainless steel, which ensures this will have a high level of durability, which tends to pay for itself.
  • And of course, this machine is perfect for cappuccinos, lattes, hot frothed milk, and hot chocolate.

GemEView Automatic Electric Milk Frother and Heater

Next in line is the GemEView Automatic Electric Milk Frother and Heater. While we usually assume that an unique appearance is usually a pleasing one, this machine serves to prove us wrong on that one, though maybe you think otherwise. But there’s no reason to judge a book by its cover (or a model by its look), so let’s take a look at the main features of this model:

  • This model has two whisks, one for frothing milk and the other for heating milk. And, quoting Amazon, the approximate time it takes to froth/heat milk is:

    Frothing cold milk 100ml takes 60s, Frothing & Heating 100ml takes 65-80s, heating 200ml takes 110-130s.

  • Next, this model also boasts a detachable base which implies that you can use that for easier serving and can also clean it more easily.
  • This model has been specially designed to work quietly. While some models make quite a bit of noise, this machine works perfectly quietly, making it a great choice for people like me who hate machines that make a lot of noise- after all, who wants to make a ton of noise should they want to use their machine at night?
  • However, this model is one of the most expensive models out there, so you might want to be on the lookout for a discount before buying this one. But it can safely be said that this machine is worth it.


Buyer’s Guide

Of course, there are always a few things that we must take into consideration while buying. So, before you decide on buying any model, you must always judge it a couple of times by yourself.

These are the main things that you must keep in mind, in this case, to ensure that you get the model that serves all your specific needs and is actually the best for you:

  1. If you’re going out to buy an electric frother and heater, be sure to get a model that actually fits that type.
  2. Another thing you might want to keep in mind in this case is the durability of the model. A durable model pays for itself in the long run, although it might cost a bit extra in the beginning, and that’s something that every smart shopper must be aware of.
  3. You might be looking for a model that is more versatile. If you only wanted hot water, you probably wouldn’t be looking for a something that also whips your drink, so know what you want your machine to do and if you find one that gives you a variety of drink options, that’s a bonus.
  4. Finally, you have to keep in mind the economic factor. This is because everyone has a budget and one must always go for a model that fits in it. At the end of the day, even if you’re on a conservative budget, you must do your research.

Electric Milk Frother & Heater Comparison Information

It is important to note here that these are the main things that we used to judged the models. However, we can only judge them from a general perspective. Only you can be truly and entirely aware about your own specific needs and that makes it indispensable for you to judge the models by yourself at the end.

That’s the only way to find the model that is the best for you, so we really suggest that you do that before you make up your mind in favor of a model. We want you to be proud of your choice when the results come!

Electric Milk Frother & Heater FAQ

Now, while you might be a veteran coffee maker who just came here to learn something new or just because there wasn’t much available on this topic, elsewhere, there are a ton of questions that might be popping up in your mind at this point.

Well, I assure you that it’s perfectly natural and I’d be more than happy to make everything clear to you. However, since you can’t exactly ask me questions while I write as you would do in a regular conversation, I’m going to answer the most common questions and I ask you to reach out to me if you have anything more that you want to discuss!

  • What is the main thing to look for in a model like this?
    There are a lot of things that are important, to be honest. Important things range all the way from features and efficiency up to affordability. But the main things to look for vary based on your needs.
  • Should I go for a specific company?
    Another question that’s really common is that if there’s some company that’s specially better. While there are bestselling companies, there’s no way to say that they always make the best product. Plus, the best one for you, as we have already said earlier, depends on you. However, it might be mentioned that experts often recommend sticking to larger companies because they have a greater validity.
  • How important is the economic factor here?
    Not all models are equally priced and not of all of us are on an equal budget. While some of us might be fine going with just about any model, some of us might be on a conservative budget. So, it’s important to buy the model that’s the best suited to it.


So, here we are, at the end of the article. But let’s recall all that we learned today, so that we can actually become smart shoppers and buy the things that would serve us the best!

So, the main thing is to keep in mind that the highest selling product isn’t always the best product for us. Our needs might be different and so the best product for us is the one that actually fits our specific needs the best. That is why we should always do our research before we go out and buy the product that’s REALLY the best for us.

Gamble Bay Coffee is here for you and is always eager to discuss anything that you might have to discuss with us. We want you to know that we are always here waiting for you to reach out to us and so you have no reason to hesitate. Looking forward to our next meeting- good day!
