1. Best Overall: Lavazza A Modo Mio Milk Easy Frother
- Easy to use
- Dishwasher safe
- Has different foam settings
- Froths vegan milk well
- Whisk is delicate
For all your milk-based drinks, from flat white to hot chocolate, this easy frother by Lavazza is an instant crowd-pleaser among reviewers. Shaped like a portable tumbler, the lightweight gadget froths 120ml of milk and can heat 180ml of the beverage in the same container. Plug it in, pour in some milk and press the multifunctional button to get the magnetic induction going to prepare your drinks. It even froths your choice of plant-based milk.
2. Best for Non-Coffee Beverages: IMONS Milk Frothing Machine
- Makes hot chocolate
- Non-stick pitcher
- Heats milk
- Whisks cold foam
- Prevents milk from burning
- Doesn't heat milk past 60°C
The all-black IMONS machine is composed of a non-stick pitcher and a tall heater base. It prepares 150ml of hot and cold foam, and 300ml of hot milk for latte, cappuccino and tea. This includes hot chocolate, as well, which you can whip up directly in the pitcher - just fill it with water or milk, spoon in your chocolate powder and press the dedicated button. Voilà! Your cup of restaurant-like hot chocolate is ready. To prevent milk burns, the machine never heats past the 60°C mark. This could be a dealbreaker for some, who like their hot beverages quite hot. But, reviews are impressed with how easy it is to clean the frother, with the pitcher being dishwasher-safe and non-stick.
