Coffee machines and milk frothers are the best things to ever have happened to coffee lovers. An opportunity to make your favorite beverage at home sounds great.
The Ninja milk frother brings the experience of a coffee house to your home. This device is especially designed to transform milk into a creamy foam for your heavenly coffee drinks in just seconds. In this review, MilkFrotherTop is going to explore its main advantages.
The Ninja Easy frother refers to the manual type of frothers and features press froth technology. These are the key technical parameters of the appliance:
|Product dimensions||3 x 3 x 8 inches (7.6 cm x 7.6 cm x 20.3 cm)|
|Weight||1.25 pounds (0.57 kg)|
|Material||Heat-resistant glass, stainless steel, plastic and rubber accessories|
|Maximum capacity for frothing||No more than 5 ounces (150 ml) of milk|
The manufacturer offers various tutorial videos on how to use the device and gives assembly instructions in case your unit comes unassembled after cleaning or repeated use.
The Ninja milk frother includes a glass carafe with a lid and a plunger which operates as a French press. The glass is rather thick, so the frother feels quite sturdy. The glass is heat-resistant and can be used in a microwave for heating milk. The carafe features a spout for comfortable pouring. The black lid has a hole, and the plunger passes through it.
Some brands make cups for manual frothers from transparent plastic which tends to smell when you pump hot milk in it. Glass doesn’t produce any odor.
The appliance is very compact and takes a small amount of space on the counter.
The frother has a few accessories which have been described in the above section. The frothing wand includes a spring, mesh screen, and feet which are screwed in with a nut.
Some models come with a rubber plate where the glass sits. This ensures more comfortable operation and makes the pitcher more stable. Some units also have a rubber ring around the glass for a convenient grip.
Quality of Use
As the name suggests, the manual Ninja frother is human-powered. It relies on a user who presses the plunger repeatedly.
To make foamed milk, pour your dairy product into the pitcher. The milk should not exceed the maximum fill line which is marked on the pitcher.
If you are in the mood for a hot beverage, you can heat the milk. Microwave it between 45 and 75 seconds depending on your microwave’s wattage. Then, put a lid on top of the cup and start pumping the handle up and down. It takes around 10-20 presses to pump air into the milk, double its volume, and generate froth. This mesh screen creates delicious micro-foam.
This appliance can be cleaned in a dishwasher on the upper shelf. It can also be hand-washed. Remove the press post with the mesh screen and the lid and wash them under running water.
You can also add some soapy solution and hot water into the glass and make some presses as if making a froth. Then rinse the device.
For thorough cleaning, you can take apart all the parts of the plunger. Just unscrew the nut on the frothing wand using your fingers (no tools required). Detach the mesh screen and other parts. Clean the parts and remove all the clogs. You can get rid of any milk deposits with the help of citric acid or lemon.
After cleaning, wipe the glass before storing. If the frother is washed immediately after use, milk residues are easily removed.
If we compare this device with other similar manual frothers, this unit is a little expensive. On the other hand, this is a durable product made of quality materials and designed for results. This appliance offers excellent milk aeration and is worth its price.
