Milk frother: the most useful kitchen gadget you'll never need

  • Dec 14, 2008

Because my roommate is always buying weird kitchen gadgetry, I'm usually stumbling around a pile of meat thermometers and oyster shuckers in our kitchen. I've never been curious in the slightest about any of these things, since my daily cooking is pretty casual.

Recently, however, he got us a battery-operated Aerolatte Milk Frother, and I've gotta say: life is pret-ty good. I should mention I'm a coffee addict who picks up two cappuccinos at Starbucks or Peet's daily. I've stopped that now, since I can achieve the same effect with the milk frother. 

The Aerolatte milk frother is kind of like plunging a vibrating electric toothbrush into a cup of milk. It's a hand-held base with a wire-y wisk at its head. I fill a wide-mouthed cup 1/3rd of the way with some 2% (milk with some fat in it works better than skim), and then put the frother in. Always be sure to turn the frother on after you've put it in the milk, otherwise it gets messy. 

The result? I get a luscious cup of milk foam, which I use to cap off my regular dark coffee. Viola! My own makeshift cappuccino. 

Note: A milk frother isn't the same as a milk steamer, which means that it doesn't heat up the milk. It might be a bit odd for some. While I'm looking to upgrade to a milk steamer, this cheapie Aerolatte frother (approx $20) works just fine for me now.
