What’s the best milk frother? To find out, we purchased milk in several varieties: cow, soy and almond. Then we tested several top brands to find which was most quiet, efficient and easy to clean.
One tip we’d suggest: warm up the milk first before frothing. We had better results this way!
For the best milk frother overall, we recommend Zulay’s Original Milk Frother. This affordable frother works on 2 AA batteries and was the quietest model we tested (and yes, we used a decibel meter to measure sound levels). Here’s more:
What We Liked
• Froths milk in just 10 to 15 seconds. That was the quickest among the ones we tried.
• Easy to clean.
• Stand is well designed.
• Lightest weight among those we tested: 4.8 ounces.
What Needs Work
• More power? We thought this frother had the right amount of power, but some folks wished it was stronger . . . especially for dissolving protein shakes. For that use, we’d recommend the next pick.
