The 5 Best Milk Frothing Pitchers We’ve Tried

If you own an espresso machine then you had better own a nice milk frothing pitcher… unless of course you use a fancy super-automatic that does it all at the touch of a button.

In fact I’d argue that anyone that regularly brews Nespresso, Moka, or even Aeropress style coffee should still own a decent pitcher because each of these forms of coffee can be used to make espresso based drinks.

A milk frothing pitcher isn’t that big of an investment either so getting the best you can afford isn’t usually that big of an investment.

I regularly brew from Nespresso machines and Moka and although I own an Aeroccino I still like using my frothing wand and Star frothing pitcher because they are both inexpensive and dishwasher safe.

As usual however there are lots of options for you and most of them are so similar that you can’t easily tell the good pitchers apart from the cheap options.

In this article I’m here to help you find the best model. We’ll take a look at the best reviewed and most popular pitchers and tell you why one might be better than another for you.

    This depends entirely on what your needs are. Some people look for a better level of durability, while some people prefer a higher level of functionality, like the no-drip spouts or the inner measuring marks, even at the price of durability. So, the best features depend on what you want from your purchase.
