Stainless Steel Milk Frothers


New member
I did a quick search of the site, but I haven't been able to find where these gizmoes have been discussed before.

I'm looking for a milk frother for making both hot and iced lattes. Over here (Taiwan) Tiamo seems to be the preferred brand for coffee accessories, but I'm sure other companies make something similar. This is your typical plunger-styled mesh/screen frother except it's made from stainless steel, so you can use it to heat the milk right on the stove before frothing. Has anyone ever tried something like this before? What are the pros and cons?

Here are some examples, but I'm not sure how long the links will stay active:

Or, does anyone else have any other suggestions. My only requirements are that it not be too big or expensive and that I can heat the milk in the same device as I froth (that's for reasons of convenience).
