The wattage is a measurement of the power consumption of your frother. If you are going to be using it all day long, such as in a coffee shop or restaurant, then we recommend an adjustable device that allows for changing at times when you need more power and also lower wattage when not in use.
Auto Shut Off
This is a very important feature and it allows your frother or steamer to turn off after a certain period of time of inactivity, causing the machine to save on energy and prolonging its life. It also prevents you from burning out the heating element by forgetting about it.
Milk Frothers vs. Steamers
The two are mostly the same, however, milk frother steamers tend to be more precise in their healing abilities, however, will require you to clean up afterward manually while a steamer may have automatic cleaning features. Milk frothers are often known to have faster heat-up times and there is no need for a separate attachment as the frother is built directly into the unit.
Best Milk Frothers and Steamers:
Capresso froth (Our Top Pick): The Capresso is truly one of a kind. With a patent-pending frothing technology, this steamer will create the perfect milk every time while being dishwasher safe and relatively easy to clean. The best part of this frother is that it can be used on more than just milk, whisks eggs for a great omelet in seconds, and heats soups up quickly with no fuss. A great buy for any household or commercial kitchen.
Pros: Mix and steam within one unit Automatic shut-off feature Easy to clean Milk Frothers vs. Steamers: With a milk frother, milk is heated and frothed within one unit. A steamer on the other hand has a separate attachment that is then put into your drink allowing for the steaming of your milk with specialized technology. Both steam and froth the milk using a heating element. The steamer has an additional attachment to allow it to do so, while the frother does this straight from the unit itself.
Auto-off: If your device does not have this feature then you should consider another one as it is very important in preventing accidents such as burning out your heating element and causing a fire. It is especially important for commercial uses as you can set it and forget it, not having to worry about forgetting about your drink and burning down the establishment.
Cleanliness: Automatic cleaning features are always a great addition to any kitchen appliance as they make clean-up easier and decrease the chances of contamination from dirty sponges used to clean off surfaces.
Customer Ratings: The averaged ratings take into consideration all the customer reviews and star ratings on Amazon. We recommend you take this rating system with a grain of salt as customer satisfaction can vary greatly depending on real-life experience, however it does give you an idea of what customers think about particular products.
When it comes to cleaning, some frothers are going to be much easier to clean up than others. For example, a one-touch steam wand can create a lot of mess when cleaning up by hand afterward. We recommend a removable milk carafe that makes for easy cleaning in the dishwasher or a frother with self-cleaning ability.
Q: Are milk frothers or steamers healthier?
If you are concerned with the health benefits of your milk, then a steamer is not for you. A steamer will not have intense heat to it so the quality of the milk may still be intact, but there are no hot/cold cycles involved that allow for pasteurization. A frother will have intense heat to it that helps better preserve your milk quality for steaming.
Q: Can I use a steam wand on any drink?
No, you cannot put any attachments into drinks or soups without causing damage to the unit and potentially causing harm to yourself. When using a steamer with milk specifically, it is recommended that you use either a frothing pitcher or a mug because the intense heat may crack the glass.
Q: Can I put water in my milk frother?
There are some models that are compatible with this feature, but if you are looking for an espresso machine that does not use steam then this is a different model entirely. You cannot use a steamer on any liquid besides milk.
