Weekend Kitchen Gadget- Frothed milk anyone?
The holidays has made the kitchen very busy. Daughter has been making cookies and I have been cooking, as usual. This Christmas a got a gift card, from my SIL and with it I purchase a Breville Milk Cafe( it is a Frother).
Now it works very nicely, has two Disk. One for Creaming milk, used in making Latte's. And a Frothing one, used for Cappuccinos and Hot Cocoa. You just measure the cold milk and put it in the Cafe. Dial the temperature you what and press the button. It dose all the work, heating the milk to the perfect temp and frothing the milk.
I have had a latte and Hot Cocoa. Both where very good. it is so easy to use to make my daughter Hot cocoa to take to the bus stop in the frigid morning temps. it takes about 2 to 7 minutes to make. Depending on the amount of milk used.
Now I have a Espresso machine and it has a air frothing mechanism . I also despised that thing. It was always hard to get the cream just right. Now I use it only to make the espresso.
You can be sure I will be looking for another one soon. But for now the old espresso machine will have to do.
I would recommend this gadget for that hard to buy person, who is into Latte's and Cappuccino's. They will find their use it a lot for Hot cocoa . It will stay out on the counter, ours does. It is costly but a very good investment.
