When it comes to frothing or heating milk for any type of milk-based coffee drink then it pretty much comes down to a handful of different types.
If you want to monitor the temperature of the milk whilst it is being heated then you can have a look at this milk jug with integrated thermometer. No need to get your hands burnt trying to gage it by feel and it won’t break the bank either.
Milk jugs also get bundled together with various items like a separate thermometer that you can stick into the milk whilst heating.
However, if you want to do that its much less hassle to go for the one with a thermometer built-in as explained above but there is some value in choosing a jug with a frothing scoop that doubles up as a latte art pen. If that appeals you can take a look at this milk frothing jug with latte art pen. Again, you are only talking a few pounds more than a jug on its own so worth checking out.
If you simply want a bog-standard jug there are literally hundreds to choose from. The prices can vary dramatically but there really is no need to spend much at all. You can easily pick up exactly what you need for way less than a tenner.
This particular jug ticks all the boxes. It comes in 350ml or 600ml so bear in mind that the volume of milk can double from cold to hot and depending on how much froth you want it may be best to go for the 600ml but if you just want hot milk then the 350ml size should be fine for most people’s requirements.
It’s made of 304 stainless steel which means that it is food grade and will not rust or corrode. You can stick it in the dishwasher as well so no messing about cleaning up afterwards.
It comes with measuring lines on the inside of the milk jug so once you work out how much milk you need for your coffee the way you like it you can easily replicate that amount each time.
At this price, you expect something that will last and will hold milk. This milk jug does a lot more. It looks good as well, the measuring lines on the inside are a bonus and the best bit of all is that they have actually thought about the shape of the spout to ensure that it does not drip and the spout is so narrow that it lends itself to trying out a bit of latte art!
It’s hard to find a product that represents better value than this. Superb value for money.
If you are stuck for a stocking filler at Christmas or have a coffee lover father or mother then this will work perfectly for Father’s Day or Mother’s Day or any birthday or of course as an ideal accompaniment to any coffee machine that has a steam nozzle.
