The steamer smartly heats up 500ml of milk without burning and creates foam from 250ml of milk – all in under 90 seconds! Like our Ariete option, the Smeg automatic frother is fashioned to fit in a retro kitchen, coming in colours black, pastel blue and cream, besides our choice of red.

5. Best for Travel: Melitta Cremio 2 Milk Frother Steamer

Pros

  • Prepares hot and cold froth
  • Tumbler convenience
  • Suitable for solo travellers
  • Easy to clean

Cons

  • Serves few people
  • Wired

Melitta’s Cremio 2 works well for both hot and cold frothed milk, as long as you plan to serve two cups in one go. It makes 150ml of froth and heats up 250ml of milk in a stainless steel tumbler unit that looks a lot like an electric water kettle. But no matter how hot the beverage gets, the surface will always remain cool to touch, so your milk goes straight into the cup from the steamer. If finding a plug point is not an issue, then Cremio 2 is an easy carry-along for camping trips with a cable winding base.
