    Milk Frother

    Anyone use a milk frother? If so, what are some good brands to look into? Anyone try the AeroLatte? Thanks.

    Hello,

    Are you looking for a small milk frother for your home?

    I don't know about the Aerolatte, but I recently bought a Bodum Mousse milk frother for my sister and her family. She and her children tell me that it's easy to use, the cleanup is simple, and they love it. They especially like that it makes "smooth and consistent milk foam with the push of a button." It runs on batteries, which makes it easier to use either at the table or kitchen counter.

    Here is the link to it if you'd like to check it out.

    Thanks PinkRose but I was actually referring to a handheld milk frother such as the aerolatte.

    Good news!

    I called a friend of mine yesterday, and I asked her if she knew anything about the Aerolatte hand-held frother. Because she buys all sorts of gadgets (from catalogs, Internet, etc.), I actually wasn't surprised when she told me that she has one.

    She described it as "a handy little thing that really works". She uses it to froth up milk for all sorts of things.

    One thing that she said was that the milk has to be cold in order for it to really froth up. It more than doubles in volume in the container that you're frothing in, so you should use a tall cup or bowl. Skim milk or low fat milk foams up best. If you froth it long enough, it looks like whipped topping. She makes it like that when she puts it on her daughter's hot chocolate instead of whipped cream.

    You can froth the milk after it has been warned in the microwave, but it doesn't hold the foam very long. You can also froth up whole milk or half and half as long as it's really cold, but it takes longer and it also doesn't hold the foam as long as the skim or 1% milk does.

    You can make the cold milk froth first and then warm it quickly in the microwave before putting it on your coffee. If you warm it too much, it will go flat real fast.

    It supposedly doesn't take long to get the hang of using the Aerolatte.
    Just be sure you use a tall enough container, or you will splash the milk as you froth it.

    Also be sure to put the end of the frothing wand into the milk before turning it on (or you will definitely splash the milk as you froth it).

    My friend also uses the Aerolatte to get the lumps out of home made gravy, to blend instant hot chocolate mix with the water, and to scramble eggs before making an omlet....so if you don't end up using the Aerolatte to foam milk, you can always use it for other things.

    I hope this helps.

    PinkRose,
    Thanks for your input, I'm sold! hahahaha. I'm gonna get one this weekend! Now my other debate, french press or areopress, by any chance does your friend have any experience on these two? I'm sure she has a french press but has she tried the aeropress? Thanks again.

    Hello again "cuppED"

    My friend has a Bodum French press. I've never known her to use anything else. Actually, I just received one recently as a gift, and I really enjoy using it.

    I don't think I know anyone who has tried the aeropress, but I'll let you know if I find someone.

    I think I remember reading some postings on this forum about the aeropress. Maybe someone on this forum will let you know if they like it.

    Why would anyone want to click on a link that says Robot Check on it?


    This is the web address that I copied from the Amazon website. It looks safer.

    Wow, I'm not sure what happened. I did post the link and now it says Robot check? But if I click on Robot Check, it goes to the website.
    Thank you PinkRose for noticing. Yep, I purchased it from that link and I used this discount code: ZENPRO15 (code still works).
