The few bubbles you get from hand whisking oat milk doesn’t hold a candle to the foamy goodness that you can get from an electric frother. Whether you’re looking for an affordable option as your first or ready to upgrade to a more serious machine, you’ll find four of the best milk frothers for you brew and your budget.
Best milk frothers for your budget
Miroco Electric Milk Steamer Soft Foam Maker — $42.00
Stepping up from handheld frothers, canister frothers allow you to heat your milk as well as froth it. I have the Miroco milk frother and I love it. It has two heated froth settings (dense foam and airy foam), one cold froth setting, and now to just heat. It works wonders with my go-to alt milks: Oatly oat milk and Tache pistachio milk. It’s on the smaller side, meaning you can only steam or froth enough milk for one. It is not machine washable.
