I used to spend an absolute fortune on coffees from Coffee shops. No matter how hard I tried, I could never recreate a decent cappuccino or latte at home. Since I had my Tassimo machine at Christmas last year, I’ve been able to make a great Americano, and a half decent latte, but without the frothy milk, it would never be quite right.
Now, however, I have a milk frother, and the difference it makes to a cup of coffee (and the kid’s hot chocolates!) is incredible.
Essentially, the SimpleTaste milk frother is a small electric hand whisk. It’s battery powered (2 x AA batteries, included!) so no long wires trailing across the kitchen, and it simply aerates your milk, creating a good frothy foam. It works both on hot and cold milk, which is useful because we make a lot of milkshakes, and having a bit of froth make them look and taste a lot better. It’s incredibly simple to use – I even let Harrison loose with it on cold milk!
What I especially liked about it is that it comes with a stand. I don’t know about you, but with items like this, if they’re put in a drawer or a cupboard, they sometimes get forgotten about and never used. The smart wire stand takes up next to no space on the kitchen worktop next to the coffee machine and means it’s always there to grab and use easily.
The only thing that I thought was a bit strange was that the whisk itself does not detach from the handle, so you can’t submerge it in water to wash, so if any residue was left in the wire, you can’t leave it to soak as you could if you could detach it.
