As a lover of cappuccino and latte, you would agree with me that there is nothing more welcoming than treating yourself to a warm frothy cup every morning. It gives you a soothing edge for a start of the day’s work.
It is no news that almond milk has a lot less calorie composition than the traditional cow’s milk, and since almond is a nutritious nut it is completely cholesterol free, that is why a lot of people are switching over to it as a preferred substitute for regular milk.
I have taken the time and effort to compile a list of the best milk frothers which work well for both regular milk and almond milk. A lot of reviews on milk frothers compile their list based on just traditional cow’s milk, but do they work well for other types of milk, such as almond milk? Take into consideration that they both have different density, and thus aerate differently and at different speeds.
Top of the list is the Breville Milk Café, it is a must have. And it is also the best milk frother for regular milk. Here is our list of top 5 best milk frother.

#1 Breville BMF600XL Milk Cafe Milk Frother
Gone are the days when you had to buy a whole espresso machine just to be able to froth milk with the loud hissing sound it makes, the Breville Milk Café does all that and more.
It has an induction heating system which warms the milk and a spinning method which aerates it; this makes the perfect combination to create small smooth bubbles in your milk.
Unlike some other frothers, the Breville Milk Café can be filled with enough milk at once for up to three servings. It has a front knob which can be pushed to start or stop operation and can be turned to control its temperature.
It also has the ability to turn itself off after getting the desired frothing temperature. It offers you an option of choosing the appropriate frothing disc you need, which could be latte to get a creamy result or the cappuccino disc which allows for more frothing, and it does wonders for hot chocolate.
Now, this frothing wonder machine does come at a price, but it is worth every penny, no use buying a cheap fancy frother that packs up after a short period, or that gives you a bubble bath instead of the desired creamy bubbles. With its many functionalities, it helps you save time and ironically money in the long run.
It works with all kinds of milk, be it almond, non-fat, or soy milk. You can also use flavoured cream for your frothing easily, so long as you clean it immediately after use which is not a bother as the jug is completely dishwasher safe. It has a low to no noise sound and very good grip.
As it should be with all originally made products the Breville Milk Café comes with a one year warranty, a user manual to help you work your way around it, and an ever supportive company to assist you with whatever issues that might arise.
#2 Epica Automatic Electric Milk Frother
The Epica Milk Frother comes at a much more reasonable price; it has enough space to hold content for two servings, which is about 4.25 oz or 125 ml for frothing, and 8.5 oz or 250 ml for heating, all done in good speed.
It is made of stainless steel vacuum insulation much like a thermos, equipped to make both hot froth and cold froth which gives you options. It is popularly known that frothed milk loses its sweet flavor if it gets hotter than 165 degrees Fahrenheit as all its fats will begin to cook, that is why the Epica Milk Frother is preferred as its temperature does not exceed 140 degrees. If you want a frother that produces steaming hot milk, then this should probably not be your choice.
If you have ever tried to pour out milk from a frother and ended up rinsing the cord of the frother into your cup then you know how annoying that can be, the Epica milk frother solves this problem by creating a detachable carafe which you can easily lift up from its base, needless to say you can be rest assured your froth will have a cordless taste.
