There’s little doubt the Breville Milk Cafe BMF600XL is the best milk frother money can buy.
First, it comes with separate whisks for cappuccino and latte frothing:
And the whisks are easy to swap in and out.
However, super picky latte drinkers may find the foam doesn’t get super smooth. If this sounds like you, a frothing wand on an espresso machine will always be your best bet.
Second, I love the temperature control on this model. No other frother on this list gives you the flexibility to foam milk at any temperature from 120°F to 160°F, and even a little cooler/hotter.
In fact, most other frothers just have a single “push to froth” button and don’t let you control temperature at all!
It’s also worth noting the cold stir setting allows you to froth milk for cold beverages, such as iced cappuccino, or simply stir in syrups or instant drinking powders.
This isn’t exclusive to the Breville BMF600XL, though. Most frothers on this list have a cold froth function.
Add in the larger volume (if that appeals to you) and the sturdy, sleek stainless steel construction (how does this not appeal to you) and, well, you can easily see why this is the best milk frother in our rankings!
