The Bottom Line
A run-of-the-mill, unspectacular milk frother that looks like almost every other model out there, the Chef's Star MF-2 isn't anything special, but it gets the job done at an affordable price point.

Chef's Star Milk Frother MF-2 Overview

Most milk frothers look a lot like this Chef's Star MF-2 and they all do the same thing:

  • Froth hot milk
  • Froth cold milk
  • Use 1 or 2 buttons to do it all

(Really, the Breville Milk Cafe BMF600XL is the exception.)

As we progress down the rankings, generally we start to lose one of two things:

  1. Max frothing capacity
  2. Reliability

Enter the Chef’s Star MF-2 milk frother.

Basically, it does everything the VAVA Milk Frother does, but it has a slightly smaller max volume, a slightly shorter warranty, and it doesn’t have the detachable top.

It also has a Teflon-coated interior, which I don’t love.

The Chef’s Star MF-2 does come with two separate whisks, though — one for airy foam and one for silkier foam.

Pros
  • Easy to use and very consistent foam
  • Great 2-year warranty
  • Comes with separate whisks for airy or silky foam
Cons
  • Slightly smaller max volume than the VAVA milk frother
  • Slightly shorter warranty than the VAVA milk frother
  • Stainless steel does show fingerprints

About The Coffee Maven

Bryan De Luca

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!
