5 Best Milk Frothers for 2024

In celebration of National Milk Day on the 11th of January, we’ve pulled together the best milk frothers on the market to take this dairy delight to new heights.


If you've ever wanted a coffee-shop-style drink at home – a milk frother is for you. These clever devices aerate milk, creating micro-bubbles that give it a light and creamy texture while increasing its volume.

From stiff foam for your cappuccino to the micro variety for a classic latte, we’ve tried and tested the top frothing machines to elevate your favourite milky brew. So, read on and discover our top five favourite milk frothers for 2024

1. Lavazza A Modo Mio Easy Milk Frother


Starting off strong, this top-rated milk frother is loved for its rich and dense foam. And the best part? The three settings to choose from. Enjoy frothed hot milk, frothed cold milk and regular hot milk at the press of a button. When it comes to size, the frother is pretty compact, making it easy to keep on the kitchen counter, but with 120ml for frothing and 180ml for heating, it can make only two small cappuccinos or one big latte.


Pros: Consistent quality, easy to use, easy to clean and quiet

Cons: Small capacity

£69, available to buy here.



2. De’Longhi Dedica EC 685.R


Espresso Machine Consider yourself a froth expert? Then, an espresso machine is a solid choice as it comes with a steam wand that gives you barista-like control over the frothed milk texture. This one by De’Longhi can be tricky to get the hang of first, but we think persistence is worth it for high-quality coffee in the comfort of your home. The machine may be on the larger side, but it looks stylish and has a 1.3l capacity, making it great for serving families or large groups.


Pros: Doubles up as a barista-worthy espresso machine and is easy to clean with its manual descaling

Cons: Quite bulky and harder to use than some of the other milk frothers

£185, available to buy here.



3. Nespresso Aeroccino 4 Milk Frother


Then, for an easier option, look to this foolproof frother. Ideal for aerating milk without the fuss, this Nespresso frother is super simple to use, comprising a heated base and a large jug with a comfy handle for pouring. The frother is mostly dishwasher-friendly, except for the base. Although, it's not the biggest out there, so you might need to do a few batches.


Pros: Easy to use, easy to clean, mostly dishwasher safe and has two different foam settings

Cons: Known to break easily and has a small capacity

£89, available to buy here.



4. Smeg Milk Frother


Next up is a classic Smeg favourite, known for its ability to whip up deliciously thick and frothy foam. With its '50s look and statement, oversized design, it's stylish enough to sit on any kitchen counter, so you don't need to store away when you're finished – and there's even a special place for its cord to avoid getting tangled up.


Pros: Stylish retro design, large capacity, easy to use and clean

Cons: Lack of frothing settings for its price

£170, available to buy here.



5. Judge Handheld Milk Frother TC344


And lastly, the humble handheld whisk. This battery-operated device by Judge is simpler than the electric options but still gives you a powerful froth. First, heat your milk, then press and hold the big button while the flat whisk does its thing. The bubbles may be a tad bigger, but the more you whisk, the frothier the foam.


Pros: Inexpensive, battery-operated, comes with a stand to prevent drips, easy to use and clean

Cons: Requires you to heat the milk yourself and makes larger bubbles than other frothers

£15.50, available to buy here.
