Secura Milk Frother and Hot Chocolate Maker Machine
This automatic milk frother and hot chocolate maker from Secura has an elegant design – a matte silver milk jug and a black electric base. What a graceful match in classic colors! The jug is manufactured from stainless steel which is non-stick. It is removable and features a convenient spout for easy pouring. The handle of the carafe remains cool even if there is hot milk inside.
The appliance is able to froth 150 ml (5 oz.) and heat 250 ml (8.5 oz.) of milk. There are special measurements inside the jug, which determine the minimum and maximum levels of liquid. The carafe has a see-through lid, which allows users to watch the milk being processed.
The device is easy to operate. It has a power button on the base which is pressed according to the chosen operation mode. The illuminated pictogram shows the selected program.
The frother includes two whisks – to froth and heat milk. The heating disk is stored underneath the power base of the appliance. To start, insert the correct disk on the axle at the bottom of the milk pitcher. Pour milk in the carafe and place the lid on top of it. Then, press the switch button:
- once for heating milk only. The light will illuminate red, and the device will begin to work. In 1-4 minutes, when the cycle is complete, it will shut off automatically. Use a heating whisk for this operation;
- twice to froth and heat milk. The light will illuminate red. This operation is the same as the one described above, but the frothing whisk should be inserted in the jug;
- three times for making foam in cold milk. The light will illuminate blue. Use the frothing whisk in this operation, too.
Before cleanup, allow the frother to cool thoroughly. Remove the pitcher from the base. Both the lid and the jug are dishwasher-safe. If you hand-wash it, do not use any metal or sharp things that may scratch the interior. The whisks can be hand-washed in warm water. Dry all the parts before storage. The power base should not be immersed into water. If necessary, use a soft wet cloth to clean it.
The price of the frother is quite acceptable, taking into account that this is an automatic household device.

Milk Frother & Warmer Models: MMF-015 and MMF-615
The Secura MMF-015 and MMF-615 milk frothers and warmers are identical models which differ in capacity. The MMF-015 allows you to froth 125 ml (4 oz.) and to heat 250 ml (8.5 oz.) of milk. The MMF-615 is capable of frothing 250 ml (8.5 oz.) and heating 500 ml (17 oz.) of your dairy product. Both models have a good-looking and elegant design in the silver color with black accents.
The frothers have a stainless steel outer housing and an inner Teflon coating. They feature a swivel base connected to the cord and a detachable jug with a comfortable handle. Inside the jug, you can see indicators for the milk levels (two maximum levels – the top maximum line is for heating (250 ml/8.5 oz.), and the bottom maximum line is for frothing (125 ml/4 oz.) milk). There is also one mark for the minimum liquid level (100 ml/3.5 oz.) needed for safe operation of the frother. The MMf-615 model has the corresponding maximum indicators – 250 ml (8.5 oz.) for frothing and 500 ml (17 oz.) for heating milk.
The carafe has a transparent lid, which is quite tight-fitting due to a silicone ring. It is vacuum-insulated and helps maintain the temperature of your beverage. The device comes with two whisks – to heat and froth drinks. You can use one whisk, and the other one is stored inside of the lid.
To start operation, attach the corresponding whisk to the axle in the carafe. Add milk and close the lid on the jug. If you want to froth and heat your milk (or heat only), press the button that is located on the container. Push and release it immediately. Both the red and blue indicators on the carafe will light up. When the milk is frothed and/or heated, the blue light goes off. The red indicator begins to flash, meaning that the beverage is ready.
To make foam in cold milk, press the “ON” button and hold it for 2-3 seconds. You will see the blue light turn on. The device will froth the milk for one minute. The blue indicator turns off, and the red one starts flashing when the froth is ready.
The frother is not dishwasher-safe, but its cleanup is as easy as its usage. Detach the container from the base and pull out the installed whisk. Clean it under the faucet to get all the milk off. Wash the inside of the carafe with warm soapy water. You may use a soft sponge, if necessary. A special brush is included in the set for thorough cleanup. Rinse the carafe with fresh water and dry it. The appliance should not be submerged into water.
Both models are durable and can last for years, unlike other similar brands, which quickly require replacement parts. These frothers are a good mid-priced variant.

Automatic Electric Frother and Warmer MMF-003 & MMF-603
Again, the Secura MMF-003 (250ml) and MMF-603 (500ml) frothers are similar devices with a different capacity. With the smaller MMF-003 appliance, you are able to froth 125 (4 oz.) ml and heat 250 (8.5 oz.) ml of milk. With the MMF-603, the maximum capacity you can froth is 250 ml (8.5 oz.) and to heat – 500 ml (17 oz.). This difference comes from the fact that milk tends to expand during frothing. The minimum and maximum liquid indicators are marked inside the container.
The exterior of both models is stainless steel. Its two-toned appearance is very good-looking. The frothers feature a detachable base, and their container is able to maintain the temperature of the drink.
The mode of operation is similar to the two models described above (MMF-015 and MMF-615). The manufacturer has even issued one instruction manual for all these four frothers. Indeed, these devices have the same arrangement of light indicators and the on/off button on the carafe.
The MMF-003 and MMF-603 include one frothing whisk and one for heating milk. Before operation, the correct whisk is inserted into the bottom inside the jug. Pour milk in accordance with liquid levels and press the button. Push it quickly to choose the frothing/heating or heating mode, and hold it for 2-3 seconds if you want to froth cold milk.
The cleanup is carried out very carefully. Observe two main rules during cleaning – don’t immerse the device in water and don’t scratch the inner Teflon coating. Wash the inside with warm water. If necessary, add some soapy solution and use a soft cloth to get rid of the leftover milk.
Both models are easy to use and pretty affordable. They have a number of functions and are priced less than similar competitive frothers.

Secura Magnetic Electric Milk Frother and Warmer
Customers love the Secura magnetic milk frother (model №MMF-902) for its ability to make both warm and cold drinks. You can create delicious hot cappuccinos and frothed iced drinks with one device.
The frother has a sleek design in typical Secura colors – black and silver. It feels and looks very solid. It features the non-stick interior coating and stainless steel housing. This make the frother long-lasting and durable. The appliance looks like an electric kettle.
The frother includes a milk jug and a detachable base, which makes pouring and cleaning easier. The device has a built-in magnetic induction motor and two whisks – for frothing (or frothing plus heating) and heating milk beverages. The whisks are also magnetic. This is a very convenient feature because the whisks usually tend to fall out of the jug during cleanup. The base also features a special whisk storage.
The frother is able to heat 250 ml (8.5 oz) and make foam in 125 ml (4 oz.) of milk. Inside the jug, there are level indicators which let you know when to stop pouring milk. The carafe is vacuum-insulated and helps maintain the temperature of the beverage. During heating, the milk reaches a temperature of only 150-160°F (65-70°C) because a higher temperature breaks down the proteins which allow the milk to froth.
To make a beverage, insert the correct whisk inside the carafe where it is held by a magnet. Cover the carafe with a lid and press the power button on the handle of the frother. The device will shut off when the operation is over.
The frother should be hand-washed, but its cleanup requires minimal effort. Remove the pitcher from the base and clean the inside with warm water. After heating milk, you may need a sponge and soapy water to get rid of the milk residue. Rinse the jug with warm water and dry it. Clean the whisks separately.
The appliance does its job very well, but it is a bit expensive.
- Modern and elegant design
- Froths both cold and warm milk
- Magnetic whisks for easy maintenance and storage
- Heat retention of the beverage
- Low-noise level
- Works great with any type of milk
- The capacity is not large
- Not dishwasher-safe
- The spout is not comfortable for pouring
All the devices offered by the Secura brand are rather economic gadgets, but they are able to make your every morning exciting. They are user-friendly and great at whisking both cold and warm beverages. They are not rated as the best value appliances without a reason. This is a good combination of quality materials, stylish design and ease of use.
