The Aerolatte To-Go is one of the most popular frothers on the market and I can see why. It can whip up a lot of foam over the milk I’ve tried, and cleaning is a breeze. The Aerolatte doesn’t come with instructions for frothing cold milk but had no problem frothing hot or cold milk, plant or dairy. Since it’s a pocket-sized computer, it takes a bit of getting used to it. But once you figure it out, handheld, wireless the frother design makes it easy to move around the cup or glass and froth the remaining liquid milk. To froth hot milk, Aerolatte recommends heating the milk in a mug (I’m assuming in a microwave, but the company doesn’t specify), frothing the milk in the mug, and pouring the coffee. To avoid futzing with the microwave, I ended up heating the milk
with instant milk A frother (more on that model below) that has a great hot milk mode. Then I poured it into a glass and started frothing. The only minor problem I encountered was that it was sometimes difficult to create bubbles that were as dense and uniform as competing models, but you probably won’t pay attention unless you’re a latte foam purist. The Aerolatte To-Go isn’t dishwasher safe, but it’s still easy to clean. Simply pour it into a cup of soapy water and clean the whisk and handle, then run it out of the water again for a few seconds to dry.
