Review: Keurig Milk Frother for Single Serve and One Cup Coffee Makers

Review from Single Serve Coffee.com - Coffee Pod Reviewsfrother_hero_ssc.jpg

Up until recently the only other automatic milk frothers were from Nespresso - the Aeroccino and Aeroccino Plus. We love our Aeroccino, but we're also ready to have some more alternatives to milk frothing companions for our single serve coffee. The Keurig Milk Frother is another stand alone frother that you can use with any single serve coffee system, but will make an amazing companion for your Keurig Mini B30, Keurig Elite B40 Brewer, Keurig B50, Keurig Special Edition Ultra Elite B60, Keurig B70 Brewer, Breville BKC600XL Gourmet Single Cup Brewer, and any other Keurig brewer.

We've been using the Keurig Milk Frother over the past two weeks, and have to say it's easy to use, clean up, and makes great frothed milk. You'll need only one essential ingredient - great skim milk for frothing. If you want to use other milk fat levels - you won't get great froth, but you will get whipped hot milk. There are two levels as well 150 ml for froth using skim milk, and 250 ml for hot milk. Both of these measure levels are marked inside the frother.

How does it work? Just pour in milk, turn it on and the Keurig Milk Frother heats and stirs the milk in under 90 seconds. The handle has the integrated frother disc, and the you simply set it on the base and push the button. The interior of the milk frother is also lined with a non-stick coating making cleaning the frother fast and easy.

After 90 seconds using skim milk you'll have lots of froth.

Whipped up goodness for your single serve coffee cup.

We give the Keurig Milk Frother high marks, and think it's a welcome addition to any single serve coffee maker setup. Once you have the Keurig Milk Frother you'll have theability to take the darker K-Cup roasts, and make some home brewed lattes and cappuccinos. You can now buy it online for just $69.95, and we think you should.

I've used my frother for a few years now with no issues. Today the plastic part on the whip attachment has broken, and I have read that there are no replacement parts. Shame on Kreurig for not making them available! Now I have to throw out the entire thing. What a waste.

PLASTIC WHIP HEAD ATTACHMENT CRACKED / BROKE AFTER 2 MONTHS AND REPLACEMENT PARTS ARE NOT SOLD, RENDERING THIS EXPENSIVE GADGET USELESS

I love my Keurig frother but unfortunetly the whip attachment is made of plastic where it attaches to the post and has cracked. I called Keurig to purchase a replacement head and was stunned to find out that they do not sell replacement parts for their frothers and suggested I buy a new one. At $80 this machine should have lasted more than a yr and parts should be available for purchase.

We absolutely love this milk frother. Reading the review and comments, I am surprised by 2 things. I use 2% milk and I get super thick froth, so I'm not sure why the skim recommendation. The burnt milk really surprises me, the milk and foam get good and hot but to burn?...I almost would believe there is a defect in that unit. No problem cleaning the unit for us either, I just rinse it and wipe it out with a paper towel.

How does the milk temperature compare between the Aeroccino and Keurig frothers? I don't have a thermometer at work with my new Aeroccino Plus, but it doesn't seem very hot. Thanks for the review!

Thanks for the tip about removing the base when the light goes off. I'm pretty sure I always do that because I put the frothed milk into my coffee right away. Any suggestions about how to get the brown that is already there off? I have tried absolutely everything I can think of that won't scratch the surface.

In order to avoid the brown bottom or burning try and remove the pitcher from the base as soon as the light goes off. This should help avoid the burn or a least minimze it.

I absolutely love the frother and use it twice every day but find it extrememy difficult to clean. I use the right amount of skim milk and follow the instructions but the bottom burns every time. It takes a lot of strength to get the bottom clean and even my husband cannot get all of the brown off. Any suggestions?


Posted by: Esther Cohn at April 12, 2009 10:28 AM

We have not seen this so far - we have had a little brown stuff on the bottom - but nothing burnt.


Posted by: Jay Brewer at January 11, 2009 8:13 AM

When you used the milk frother, did you experience the milk burning at the bottom?
