Let’s take a deeper look into the working of a milk frother.
So you just got your automatic milk frother and you are excited to get started on making your first drink, but wait, you need to get familiar with each of the parts of the device.
The milk frother comes with a carafe, with a fastened lid and a power unit that you plug to the wall socket. The carafe sits on the power unit, which is the heating unit. It comes with marked points indicating higher line for warmed milk and lower line for frothed milk.
It also comes with some whisk attachment. The plain one is meant to be used for warming your milk with little or no foam and the curly whisk is meant for creating warm frothed milk.
To have the best of frothed milk, use cold fresh milk. Options of milk you can use include cow milk (low fat, non-fat, or full fat), coconut milk, soy milk or almond milk. Of course, you can froth any kind of milk but some milk produce better foam than others. It is also important to mention that the quality of your frothed milk will also depend on the brand of milk you use.
