Milk Frothers Dec 06, 2023 No Comments

Nothing is better than a nice cup of hot beverage in the cold winter whether it’s a creamy cup of latte, rich and frothy hot chocolate, or a warm cup of Matcha Latte.

Making your favorite holiday hot beverages at home has never been easier. Thanks to gadgets like electric milk frothers, and easy-to-buy ingredients, you can make your drink at a fraction of the price!

In this post, I will tell you how to make your favorite beverages at home by using an affordable electric milk frother.

Why You Need An Electric Milk Frother

Maestri House Milk Frother

This is an electric milk frother. If you are unfamiliar with this appliance, it’s the easiest way to heat and froth your favorite kind of milk with a push of a button. And if you prefer your drinks iced, you can use it to make cold foam, too.

This kind of milk frother eliminates the need to heat your milk separately or use a handheld frother that will give you inconsistent results.

Also, it allows you to add your ingredients to the milk as it heats and froths, which results in a better-tasting recipe!

Electric milk frothers are versatile and can be used to make any milk-based recipe: hot chocolate, lattes, cappuccino, mocha… you name it!

Why the Maestri House Milk Frother Is The Best

What makes Maestri House my best pick for an electric milk frother?

Large Capacity: While most electric frothers hold only enough milk for a single cup, the Maestri House frother holds up to 21 oz of milk for hot milk, or half the capacity for foam (because milk will double in size, you have to use half the capacity).

Dishwasher Safe: This frother uses induction heating. The milk jug separates from the base and you can place it in the dishwasher. The jug itself does not have any electric components, only the base unit.

Safe Materials: The Maestri House milk frother is fully stainless steel. So it’s safe, does not contain any Teflon coating, and is nonstick. It is also more durable than teflon-based frothers.

Variable Temperatures: You can heat your milk using three temperature selections 120℉, 140℉, and 160℉. And there’s the cold foam setting, which bypasses heating the milk and froths it only.

Foam Selection: You can select your foam level from high foam, light foam, or no foam.

Add Ingredients Directly into the jug as it froths. This creates a more delicious drink, especially if you are making hot chocolate.

Affordable Price: Most electric frothers with these features will run you over $100 in price. The Maestri house costs less, making it the most affordable frother with variable temperature settings and stainless steel housing.

How To Make Hot Chocolate Using This Milk Frother

It takes less than two minutes in total to make hot chocolate using an electric milk frother.

  • Add your preferred amount of milk. Just make sure you add the minimum amount needed for the frother to operate.
  • Add your hot chocolate either in the form of powder, syrup, or chocolate shavings.
  • If you want, you can also add additional syrups, but it would be best if you add them to your cup instead.
  • Select the foam level and temperature. Then hit start.

The machine will now start heating and spinning the milk to froth it. The milk frother will automatically stop when the selected temperature and foam level are reached.

How To Make a Latte Or a Cappuccino

Making these coffee drinks requires that you first make the coffee base, whether you are using an espresso machine, a K-Cup machine, or a moka pot, and then make the foam separately using the milk frother.

  • All you have to do is add the milk to the frother and select the foam level and temperature.
  • For a latte, you want to use the light foam setting.
  • For a Cappuccino, use the high foam setting.

When the milk froth is ready, pour it on top of your coffee base and enjoy!

Milk Types You Can Use

I understand that not everyone wants to use dairy milk in their coffee or hot chocolate. With the Maestri House frother, you can use any type of milk you prefer.

But like any other frother, the foam level is always affected by the fat content in the milk. The higher the fat, the better the foam.

What I suggest is that you buy ‘Barista’ style milk, which is an alternative milk option that is formulated especially to make better froth for coffee. You’ll find these from many brands and in different formats like almond milk, coconut milk, oat milk, and more.

How To Clean The Maestri House Milk Frother

This is one of the easiest milk frothers to clean either by hand or in the dishwasher.

  • Pick up the milk jug and wash it by hand or place it in the dishwasher.
  • Inside the jug, there’s a whisk, which is the part that spins and froths the milk. This part is detachable and can be also cleaned by hand or in the dishwasher.
  • The base unit can be wiped clean using a damp cloth. But never wash it or submerge it in water.
