There’s currently three electric automatic milk frothers that are dominating the best seller lists, these are: Breville’s Milk Cafe, Secura Electric Milk Frother and Nespresso’s Aerroccino Plus. Each frother has its own pros and cons, so we’re here to compare these frothers and help you decide which one to buy.

Nespresso Aeroccino 3 vs Aeroccino Plus
Since the Aeroccino Plus has been discontinued by Nespresso, it’s been replaced with the Aeroccino 3. For the most part, it does the exact same thing and has the same capacity (4 oz for hot or cold froth or 8 oz for hot milk). The difference is that the design has been totally revamped. There’s no more handle, but the body of the Aeroccino 3 remains cool to touch. Another difference is that the Aeroccino 3 only includes one whisk which can be used for both frothing or heating milk, so you don’t have to worry about losing or storing whisks.

Final Verdict – Which Of These Milk Frothers Should You Get?
Out of these frothers, Nespresso is the most popular brand, which is why you’ll find it is the most reviewed frother. However, personally, I don’t believe it offers the best value for your money. If you’re on a budget of under $100, you’ll find the Secura Milk Frother to be the best bang for your buck. If you can go a little over $100, the Breville is your best choice, even though we can’t confirm its capacity, it offers you more features like hot chocolate preparation and allows you to adjust the temperature of the milk manually. And while the Nespresso Aeroccino works just as advertised, it’s pricier than the Secura, offers less capacity, and does not give you the temp. customization and hot chocolate option of the Breville.
