All the froth, please!

Frothy milk is an essential part of several different styles of coffee.

You eat it with a spoon, right? Right? Only animals gulp down frothy milk beverages, so getting your own milk frother goes a long way to prove you are in fact a superior species. It also means you can make tasty lattes and cappuccinos. Double bonus!

OK, let’s help you decide…

Vava EE013 Milk Frother

Vava EE013 Milk Frother

Price: ££ (check)

Size: 10 x 10 x 19.1 cm

Capacity: 240ml

The Vava EE013 Milk Frother is stylish & automatic

The new Vava EE013 milk frother’s 4 settings, symmetrical build and handless but really cool ergonomic design makes it the Rolls Royce of Milk frothers in terms of aesthetics and function. And just as the vehicle does more for its users, this frother delivers in terms of more flavor variety and taste. Here’s how.

If you didn’t know all the different ways your froth could taste, prepare to be amazed. Vava EE013 is fitted with a dial that allows you choose from 4 unique settings – hot dense foam, hot milk, hot airy foam and cold froth. It also comes with a strix temperature controller, which automatically shuts off your machine when its temperature gets anywhere between 65 and 70 degrees Celsius.

This new model switched out the practical lip (which directs the flow of fluids when pouring out of the frother) in Vava’s previous models for a sleeker, more modern look. The lack of a lip may take some getting use to, especially if you’re somewhat clumsy, but the extra whisk and froth setting should be worth the switch.

Moving on to care, the EE013 has a double wall non-stick coating which makes cleaning easy. The non-stick coating means you won’t have to worry about “burnt milk” settling at the bottom of your frother. Milk heats and froths at 115 ml (enough for two cups), only heats with a bit of froth when the milk is poured up to 240 ml and, depending on your setting, takes 220 seconds max to finish brewing.

Key features of this model

  • Double lined wall with internal non stick coating
  • Handless but has an ergonomic grip design
  • Comes with a strix temperature controller
  • Has 2 sets of frothing whisks and 2 sets of heating whisks

Why this one is the best

Vava EE013 stands out not just because of its incredibly innovative design, but also because it gives its users an extra froth setting – which most milk frothers don’t have – to experiment with. So if you’re tired of paying premium prices to fuel your coffee habit, shop now and join the millions of people saving extra and discovering new ways of taking their coffee.

Lavazza Milk Up Frother

Lavazza Milk Up Frother

Price: ££ (check)

Size: 24 x 17.2 x 14.2 cm

Capacity: 120ml

The Lavazza Milk Up Frother is a premium frother

With its multi-purpose hot/cold frothy milk button, to make brewing easy, and a magnetic induction which allows you brew your cappucino without waking all your neighbours, Lavazzo’s MilkUp milk frother is the best way to avoid paying premium prices for a cup of frothy goodness at a cafe.

This particular MilkUp is cleverly designed with a detachable jug to make cleaning painless. You can either submerge the jug in water, or put it in a dish washer without worrying about water getting into unwanted crevices. Its frothing discs are also removable, in case you want to give them a thorough cleaning. The hot and cold multifunction button also allows you brew hot chocolate while the milk’s frothing, so you won’t need to make any extra mess when making the cocoa portion of your hot chocolate.

Even though this Lavazza model comes with a stylish black lid, making it difficult to see how well your milk is frothing, it does make an audible beep to notify you when its done. Basically, you can perform other tasks without constantly watching your drink brew – it’s idiotproof like that. It has a milk frothing capacity of 120 ml and a heating capacity of 180 ml, so it might not froth as much if you keep adding milk, but it will heat up just fine. MilkUp weighs just 0.9 kg, making it a lot more portable, but no less effective, than most frothers in the market.

Key features of this model

  • Removable jug and whisks for easy care
  • An automatic Hot/Cold Multifunction button
  • Produces an audible beep when milk is done frothing
  • Has 120 ml frothing capacity and 180 ml heating capacity
