Best Budget Electric Milk Frother
Epica Automatic Electric Milk Frother and Heater Carafe by Epica
If you were to see the Epica sitting on a kitchen counter, you probably wouldn’t know what it is. It looks like what you would get if a bottle warmer mated with a stainless steel wine chiller, but it’s what it does that makes it so great.
You can fill it with milk and make it work for either hot or cold drinks. I’ve spent a lot of time building up froth, but I never knew there were machines that worked for both hot and cold. If you’re making your favorite cappuccino or latte, you can pour the milk in the top and just let it do its thing. The milk sits right inside the base which has a heating element and the power to get the milk frothed to the volume you want.
Depending on how much milk you put in, you can get foam for a cappuccino, frothed milk for a latte, or warm milk to make hot chocolate or soothe your stomach. No matter what you’re looking for, there is probably an option for it with this super simple milk frother, and it’s a lot less expensive than many other espresso accessories.
There is a lot you can do with it, and it even detaches from the base so it can be used as a pitcher. I can think of about 15 or 20 different things I could use it for, from cooking oatmeal to warming milk before bed.
