Frothing milk has never been easier than when using the Aerolatte, a stylish and convenient hand held frother. Attractively designed with a chrome finish, it operates on two included AA batteries to quickly froth milk, and does not rely on steam. It’s small size makes it highly portable and easy to store, and is especially great for frothing individual cups.This cute handheld milk frother is fun and easy to use; British celebrity chef Nigella Lawson recommends it over steam-driven frothers. Plus, in addition to its most popular use–creating delicate foam for homemade cappuccinos, lattes, or hot chocolates– the Aerolatte milk frother can be used for other, equally yummy treats. An enclosed recipe sheet offers ideas for fruit “shakes” and coffee frappes that can be made with any kind of cow, goat, sheep, soy or rice milk! Some restaurant chefs even froth milk to foam garnish earthy soups.
The frother is easy to use, with a simple black toggle button to turn it on. Hold the stainless steel head just below foam level to keep froth building. The shape of the steel-toned, satin-finished handle is curved in the right places and flattened on the sides for a comfortable grip. When it’s time to replace the batteries, a black ridged cover slides off to reveal the battery chamber. (It’s important to use alkaline batteries with the Aerolatte milk frother.)
To clean, turn the frother on and dip the whisk in hot soapy water; rinse well, and turn again briefly to spin dry. Wipe the handle with a damp cloth; do not immerse handle in water. The whisk is not removable from the battery handle. The milk frother measures 8-1/2 by 1-1/2 inches. Two AA alkaline batteries are included, as well as a recipe and instruction sheet. Aerolatte guarantees the Original Steam-Free frother for five years. –Garland Withers

This works so well, it’s INSANE (see my photos) I just got the box from Amazon, pulled out my new Aerolatte, removed the protective cover from the battery compartment (yeah, it even comes pre-loaded with a pair of “aerolatte” double A’s!), and put about 2 oz of NON-FAT (skim) milk in a glass.I nuked the milk for about 20 seconds, pulled it from the microwave, stuck the aerolatte in the glass and pushed the switch.DANG!!Nearly INSTANT foam. GOBS of it. It formed PEAKS!! You could make small milk-animals out of it.I really can’t believe how well this thing works. The only thing that would ruin it for me is if it simply fell apart after a few uses, but frankly, with a little bit of care, it looks like it’ll hold up. We’ll see.But in the meantime, call me Doctor Foam.-Jonathan SabinUPDATE ***9 MONTHS LATER***Notwithstanding the complaints of people who claim that their aerolatte lasted about 5 minutes, I just replaced the batteries for the…
Works well when the batteries are new. But you can froth milk in French Press! I have owned this for about 5 years. I use a stover top espresso maker which works about as well as electric steam type. I have found that the electric pump type that are less than $250.00 don’t work that well, and take up too much counter space in a small kitchen. This does work, but I found something that froths milk much better than this and much faster.Use a small Bodum 4 cup French Press. Put your milk in the French Press (not the same one you are making your coffee in. Get a second smaller one) and rapidly work the plunger up and down for about 10 to 20 seconds. You have frothier milk in less than half the time and you won’t need to change batteries every two weeks.
Aerolatte is great … rates 5 plus, plus, etcetera!! I’m pleasantly surprised at the thick, firm, yet light, foam this product produces from homemade soy milk … all that with my very first attempt! Now, I can experiment with some light flavors. Trust me … this is a no brainer! My only regret is that I waited so long to give this little gadget a try. I’m at the bottom of my first large cup of coffee using this little frother, and the froth/foam had such staying power that I’m having to use a spoon to get the last it from the cup. Thank you Areolatte!!UPDATE 12/22/06: Boy oh boy, how I love Aerolatte frothers!! I now own three of these little gadgets! I recently bought 2 more from the online Aerolatte distributor. The very newest top-of-the-line model is all stainless (even the handle), has a thicker stainless stem, and comes with a large stainless stand. Then, they have the black molded plastic one that comes with it’s own sturdy grey, protective, plastic container with a cap on one end (not the one with the tin case)…
