Steamed milk without an espresso machine?

Pei | Oct 3, 2006 08:53 PM

The turn in the weather has me craving all sort of steamed milk drinks: matcha with steamed milk, hot chocolate, steamed milk with green or black tea, steamed milk with torani syrups, cafe au lait, the list is endless.

The thing is, I don't need or want an espresso machine. Most of the steamed milk drinks I like don't even involve espresso.

Do the stovetop milk steamers work? Or is there another alternative?

I've had a wand like this, and it just doesn't do a good enough job:

I don't think a frother like this will be good enough either, since I didn't like the wand:

Maybe this?

The one I'm interested in looks like a Bialetti stovetop espresso maker, but has a wand for steaming milk. Has anyone tried it?
