What! Wait. Hang on. You mean I can buy a milk frother for under £25? Yes, you can. And not only that. The best milk frothers you can buy for under £25 are not only affordable they are brilliant at frothing milk. You really don’t need to spend more than a twenty quid note to buy a great milk frother to make the best foamy coffee you’ve ever tasted.

In fact, for the cost of around three coffees from Starbucks you can be making your own frothy coffees at home that not only taste better but they also cost just a few pence to make.

So, prepare to bin off the expensive high street franchises and make your own coffee with the best milk frother you can buy for under £25.

Let’s crack on.

I thought milk frothers are expensive?

Well, everything is relative. And you can pay out some serious cash for a top of the range electric milk frother like the Severin SM3587.

But you really don’t need to pay that kind of money. Of course, you have to make some compromises. A milk frother you can buy for under £25 won’t be automatic. You’ll have to do some manual frothing and you’ll lose the aesthetics and name associated with the big brands.

But since when has any of that bothered serious bargain hunters. And the milk frothers I’m going to recommend to you are serious bargains. They do cost under £25 and they are fantastic little devices that everyone should have in their kitchen.

So, without any further waffle – let’s look at the four best milk frothers you can buy for under £25.

Zulay Milk Boss

My personal milk frother of choice. And, as you can see from the photo below it always stands ready on my kitchen countertop.

The Milk Boss is unique among milk frothers (and probably all small kitchen appliances) in that it comes with a lifetime happiness guarantee. In other words, it has an indefinite warranty. Not that it will ever let you down.

It’s a very simple device but very well built. It’s available in many different colours but the standard black version looks great and fits in with any kitchen decor.

  • Make Rich, Creamy Froth In Seconds: We coffee lovers are serious when it comes to our coffee....
  • Matcha Whisking, Coffee & More: Works better than a manual matcha whisk for making matcha tea...
  • Proven and Trusted Quality: We use only premium materials. The construction will last, backed...

The frother comes with its own stand so unlike other handheld milk frothers it doesn’t have to be stored away in a drawer.

But that’s enough about aesthetics. Let’s look at how good a frother the Milk Boss is.

For me the Milk Boss is the best handheld milk frother out there. It’s tremendously powerful and in just 30 seconds it will turn your milk into a thick textured foam. You can also use the Milk Boss to make lovely hot chocolate. You can see it in action in the video below.

Like all handheld frothers the Milk Boss is very easy to use and, because it is so powerful, you can use it for lots of other small mixing tasks.

Given its price point, its sturdy construction, its excellent design – not to mention what a fantastic frother it is – the Milk Boss gets my vote as the best milk frother you can buy for under £25. In fact, it only costs around half that amount.

Bonsenkitchen milk frother

Second on my list but a fantastic value for money device that is just as good as the Zulay Milk Boss. In fact, you can read more about how they compare to one another in this article:

Bonsenkitchen vs Milk Boss

Bonsenkitchen is a bit of a mouthful but it’s great frother. It’s surprisingly powerful for a device that is powered by two AA batteries. But if you’re looking for frother that you can use time after time with the same great results this is the one for you.

You can see the Bonsenkitchen in action in the video below where I use it to show how easy it is to use a handheld milk frother.

This frother doesn’t have an extended warranty like the Milk Boss but you won’t have any issues with reliability. I’ve used mine for well over a year now with no issues and the original batteries are still going strong.

Talking of batteries, the Bonsenkitchen is one of the very few handheld milk frothers which are supplied with their own batteries. This may seem a small point but there’s not many things more frustrating than not having any batteries when you’ve purchased a new appliance.

You’ll only have to shell out a ten-pound note and change for this fantastic frother. You can’t really find better value than that anywhere.

Judge Milk Frother

The most ‘expensive’ frother of the three we recommend though it still comes in well under £25.

The Judge is a superbly made frother and comes with a magnificent 25-year guarantee. From the image you can see that the Judge is a different kind of frother from the two we’ve already looked at.

Unlike the handheld frothers with which you have to heat the milk separately, you place the Judge on the hob and it heats the milk before you pump the plunger to make the foam.

It’s really very easy to use though you do have to be careful when removing the frother from the hob and make sure you hold it with a tea towel or oven glove while operating the plunger.

But the proof as they say is in the pudding. Which isn’t really a great metaphor but what I can tell you is that the foam you produce with this frother will be incredibly thick and creamy.

It may seem a bit weird having to pump the plunger on the handle to make the foam but it’s fun to do and very effective. You really will be amazed at the quality of foam this little frother can produce. And, once the milk is heated, it only takes 30 seconds or so to make the foam.
