Many hot beverages these days require warm steamed milk or thick frothed milk and most people simply do not possess the means to prepare these ingredients easily. Without the proper tools, frothing milk is extremely tiresome, which is why people often opt out of drinking any exquisite and otherwise very tasty drinks that require frothed milk. It just so happens, unfortunately, that milk based drinks like frothy coffee, hot chocolate, or cappuccino, are some of the tastiest hot drinks in existence.
A proper milk frother will aerate the milk by rapidly agitating it, thus introducing quite a bit of air into it. As a result, the milk turns into a thin, foamy mixture that you can use for a variety of hot drinks. What’s best about them is that they don’t cost you a fortune either. So without further ado, here are the ten best milk frothers money can buy.
