Wand Frothers - Do They Work?

Velda Mae | Dec 16, 201308:44 AM

I'd like to get a frother to aerate my hot cocoa and milk for coffee, chai, etc. There are many to choose from and I'm wondering if any of them work. I recently read about the Aerolatte Chef on Rose Levy Beranbaum's blog. It sounds like it has more power than the traditional Aerolatte, it has variable speeds and enough power to whip a small amount of heavy cream. It doesn't seem to be available in stores and I haven't seen any online reviews. It's about $30, so about $10 more than the regular Aerolatte and other wand frothers I've seen. Before I order it, I thought I'd survey my fellow CHers to see if there's a better model out there. I've finally given up my cappuccino machine on the grounds that it takes longer to clean than it does for me to enjoy my beverage but I miss having an option for frothed milk. I like the idea of a wand frother because it doesn't take up much space, but if folks think I'd be happier with something like the Capresso Froth Tech, I'd give it some thought. Either gadget will be smaller than the espresso machine I've deaccessioned.
