I absolutely love lattes and Roger likes cappuccino’s, we do find that it can be quite expensive buying sachets or pods of it though so prefer making our own. We were sent a VonShef Black & Copper Milk Frother and I couldn’t wait to try it out.
We do have a battery operated hand milk frother but to be honest, it takes time and its such a faff about we don’t use it often at all.
I was so excited when it arrived I got it out of the box and had to test it out right away. After reading the instructions I was good to go.
This milk frother is an electric, you can use it to froth with or without heat. The heat function warms up the milk to around 65°C in approximately 2 minutes while you are waiting you can be getting the other part of the drink ready.
A double-walled stainless steel body is strong and insulated, and it has a non-stick interior which makes it easy to clean. The milk frother body sits on a corded base, like a kettle and you just take t on and off as you need to do. This makes it so much easier because you can remove it to pour into a cup or glass.
There is an automatic shut-off that activated when the optimum heat or froth levels are reached, this is a great safety feature. It’s powered by a 550W motor.
The black and copper colour is perfect for my kitchen as all my other appliances are black.
We have only used the frothing and heating method so far. It is so simple to use, pour the milk into the unit filling it to the lower max mark which is a raised marker inside the unit. Put the lid on and make sure it is on fully so not to spill out.
Make sure that the socket is switched on, and then just press the heat button on the front once.
The milk frother now works it’s magic both heating the milk and frothing it at the same time. While I was waiting for it to finish, I put some coffee and caramel syrup in a latte glass. I filled to 2/3 or 3/4 of the way up with hot water. The last quarter or third will be for the hot milk and froth.
The milk frother stopped once it was done so I took the unit off the base and poured the milk into the glass, then scooped the froth onto it too.
It was the perfect froth, so foamy.
I then had to do it again as my two-year-old son wanted frothy caramel milk. Although this time my son had cold milk in his cup first. I added a dash of caramel, then the warm milk and mixed it in with the cold. I added the froth once the milk was mixed together so it was a nice temperature for him.
He really liked his caramel frothy milk as he kept telling everyone what he was drinking lol.
When finished with, you can pull the frother and paddle out to clean. You can clean the inside of the unit with a little warm soapy water and a soft sponge. Dry with a soft towel.
The whole family really like the VonShef electric milk frother. It takes the hassle out of making cappuccinos, lattes, and any other drink you like to have with froth on.
I would definitely recommend it, it’s fabulous!
