Breville Milk Cafe BMF600XL Overview

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:

  • Cappuccino Disc: Thick and creamy froth
  • Latte Disc: Smooth and luscious froth

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!

Pros
  • Large max volume
  • Heavy-duty stainless steel exterior
  • Temperature dial gives you the most control of any frother on this list
Cons
  • Higher-end cost
  • Latte foam may not please the pickiest of latte drinkers

Breville Smart Grinder Pro

Breville Smart Grinder Pro
Overall Rating: 91
With 600 different grind sizes (not a typo), grind time increments down to 0.2 secd, an LCD digital display, and the ability to grind for single shots to full pots, there isn’t a better do-it-all grinder in this price range.

Breville Duo-Temp Pro BES810

Breville Duo-Temp Pro BES810
Overall Rating: 85
One of Breville's most basic models, the Duo-Temp Pro gives you total control over your brewing journey. It's a little too light (extra weight helps when inserting/removing portafilters) but I won't complain at under $500.

Breville Barista Express BES870

I'm Bryan but most people know me as The Coffee Maven. I grew up outside Boston, Massachusetts and received my Bachelor's degree in Biochemistry from Providence College. My first introduction to coffee was during my college days, when I used it as a source of caffeine to fuel late-night study sessions, but soon I became obsessed with the chemistry of coffee. How did changes to water temperature or contact time affect its taste? Why do beans from Africa taste fruity while beans from Indonesia taste spicy? I launched The Coffee Maven in February 2017 to explore these questions and help others brew their perfect cup. Welcome to my site, and thanks for reading!
