If you’d like to make frothy milk for coffee drinks at home, this little milk frother by Aerolatte is a great device, for less than $20.
Gadget name: Aerolatte Milk Frother
It looks like: A lightweight, battery-operated wand.
How it’s supposed to work: Like a mini-immersion blender: You simply place the thin, stainless steel frother into warmed milk, and turn it on. It warms while it whisks, so thirty seconds later, you’re one step closer to the perfect latte.
How it actually works: Just like it says it will. We had frothy perfection in less than a minute.
Drawbacks: It’s battery-operated. Which means it’s portable—but it also might die in your time of need. (Best to keep extra batteries on hand.)
My favorite part: It’s a snap to use, clean, and store. (Can you tell we liked it?)
Best for: Making small quantities of whipped cream, vinaigrettes, and bases for many a delicious coffeeshop beverage.
