Or even one of those battery operated handheld ones.
All you need to do is add milk to the pitcher and press a button. The frother does all the work for you.
To heat milk without froth, simply replace the frothing disk at the bottom of the pitcher with the flat heating disk and the machine will stir the milk while it is being heated to prevent scalding.
The heating disk is perfect to warm milk for lattes, hot chocolate or for cooking.
You can even use the cold setting for making cold froth for a wonderful cappuccino or for incorporating powdered mixes together.
Not only can you make a wonderful thick creamy froth that makes any coffee taste special, but it is also easy to clean. There is nothing to it since the base is separate from the milk pitcher. As well the operation is smooth and quiet.
Some people found that the plastic pitcher does not hold enough heat to make enough good froth. While other found that the froth was too thick with no milk left.
It does this while heating it to one of three temperature settings. You can choose either hot, warm or cold.
You can use the heating disk to warm milk and cream to add to egg yolks and sugar for homemade creme anglaise.
As well you can marinate ingredients like vanilla, cloves, citrus peels or spices in warm milk for 10-20 minutes to bring out an enhanced flavor.
You can also use the heating disk to warm milk for an old-fashioned hot milk or to add to hot chocolate.
By using the cold setting, you can froth low-fat milk and citrus juice such as lemonade, limeade or orange juice to create a refreshing lemon meringue latte, orange cream latte, or key lime latte.
