A Hand Operated Milk Frother That's Quick and Easy To Use.
With this nifty little gadget in your possession you'll be able to quickly froth milk for your cappuccino, coffee, latte or hot chocolate in just 20-30 seconds! Despite being hand operated the Bodum 1446 Latteo Milk Frother out performs some of its more expensive, electric counterparts, making it ideal if you want a frother that's easily affordable. Not only that but when you've finished frothing your milk you can bung ALL parts of the frother into the dish washer for easy cleaning – it really doesn't get any easier than that!
How To Use It
Simple pour in your pre-heated milk, and use a little bit of hand-o-matic pumping to get perfectly frothy milk in less than 30 seconds. There is also a hand fill line printed onto the side of the glass so you know exactly how much milk to use – too much milk could cause a mess!
Although if you don't want to froth the milk whilst its hot you can always froth the milk first and then place the glass jar in the microwave to heat up. In fact, some people claim this produces a much denser foam and that the heat from the microwave firms up the firm to an almost beaten egg-white consistency. This is particularly useful to know because it allows you to have total control over the consistency of the foam produced – which is great if you enjoy a thicker/lighter foam.
The container itself is made from borosilicate glass. This is a special type of glass that is very resistant to thermal shock and prevents the glass from cracking or shattering if, for example, you pour hot milk straight into the frother without warming the glass container first. This also allows you can place it in the microwave to heat the milk for short periods, which is great because it means there's a bit less washing up because you won't need to heat the milk/foam in a separate container.
The lid to this frother has a deep rim which prevents foam escaping through the rim/spout and making a mess.
If you're looking for a milk frother that doesn't break the bank, but still delivers, then you can't go wrong with this frother from Bodum. It makes a perfect companion to any coffee machine (that might not produce as much foam as you'd like) and is super simple to use and clean. And, whilst it does not heat the milk for you the fact you can do heat it easily in the same container as you produce the froth is a very nice though out feature that will definitely save you some time. You also have the added bonus that there is very little which can go wrong (such as a faulty electrics etc) meaning this frother should last you for a very long time. A great all rounder!
