Specialized milk frothers, such as the Aeroccino Plus and the Kuissential Deluxe Automatic Milk Frother and Warmer, provide both milk frothing and warming capabilities. The Krups Latteccino 2-in-1 Coffee Maker incorporates a coffee pot alongside a milk frother and heater. Traditional cappuccino machines have steam wands for steaming and frothing.
The Kuissential Deluxe Automatic Milk Frother and Warmer warms and froths the milk in one step. By comparison, the Aeroccino Plus has separate modes for frothing or warming milk.
The Krups Latteccino 2-in-1 Coffee Maker allows users to brew coffee and create hot froth with one device. Traditional cappuccino makers, like the Espressione Cafe Minuetto, have a thin, metal steam wand. Users place the wand deep into milk to heat it or keep the wand just below the surface to create hot froth.
