The best part about a Cappuccino or a Latte is the froth on top, but if you don’t have an espresso machine with a steam wand that will allow you to froth the milk, you might think you won’t be able to create the perfect froth. You’ll be happy to know there are actually some alternatives to a steamer for milk frothing, here are the different ways you can froth milk without a steamer:
The Hand-held Milk Frother:
This is the least expensive and easiest way to create milk froth. The battery-operated milk frother is great to create milk froth right inside your serving cup. It mostly does the job right, but it can be a hit or miss. However the only one issue with such milk frothers is that they require a lot of battery change, so it could actually end up costing you money, depending on how much you use it.

Stainless Steel Press Milk Frother:
Another inexpensive milk frother, the stainless steel pot kind of works like a Fresh Press pot. It doesn’t require any batteries, so to create froth you’ll manually pump the press inside to froth the milk.
The one pictured above is the HIC Brands Stainless Steel milk frother, which holds up to 14 oz of milk/froth.
The Electric Milk Frother:
We saved the best for last, the electric milk frother, while is not as inexpensive as the others, it is certainly the best option to make milk froth without a streamer. Using an electric frother, you’ll get creamy froth, either hot or cold, with a touch of a button. You can either heat milk only, heat and froth, or keep it cold and froth the the milk. Its stainless steel built makes it easy to clean, and vacuum insulation makes sure to seal in the temperature of milk.
