stovetop milk steamer--a better way to froth?

lucy | Dec 20, 2004 02:21 PM

I'm looking for a better method than a rotating frother or a French press to make the froth that my boyfriend loves with his coffee (it's half coffee, half milk) every morning. On EspressoZone.com, there is an aluminum stovetop milk steamer. Has anyone tried this? Since it's more than half the size of one of my burners, won't the plastic handle melt? How is there ample room to hold the frothing pitcher beneath the stream wand? Are these things safe?

I'd love to make steamed milk that is soft, with barely visible bubbles, that actually mixes into the coffee a bit. Too bad we're not fans of espresso, or I'd buy a machine. Help!
