Different whisks for heating and frothing.

Automatic Milk Frother, Heater and Cappuccino Maker
The heavy-duty motor makes thick and creamy froth from whole milk. It will even froth low-fat and non-dairy milks such as almond or soy milk. This frother features a detachable carafe, just simply lift it off the base and carry it to wherever you want to pour your froth or hot milk. The carafe is vacuum insulated to help keep the milk or froth hot or cold. Our milk frother heats about 1 cup (8.0 oz /250 ml ) of milk at a time. For frothing, use half that amount (4.0 oz/125 ml) due to the milk doubling in volume as it foams. Level indicators will show you when you have it correct.

Chef's Star Premier Electric Milk Frother
Top customer reviews
I used to have the other frother at my older job so I can compare-and this does exactly the same job as the nesspresso for such a great price.
It also has a place on the cap to hold the whisk you are not using, which is awesome.
I used it only for hot froth and it gives a lot of foam!
Very very satisfied with my purchase!
This is the model that everyone is raving about.
On to my review.
Bottom line first: This milk warmer and frother is EVERYTHING people around the Net and on Amazon have said it is. Get this Chef's Star automatic frother, it is the best one you could ever hope to find. Yes, other types and models may work well and some have received good reviews too. However, I settled on this particular warmer/frother because it has CONSISTENTLY received the highest ratings and best reviews.
Backstory - Why I Wanted This (it was NOT to make lattes).
I'm one of those Keurig converts. Once you make coffee by the cup, you will never go back to making coffee by the pot. My problem was I like a LOT of Half & Half in my coffee. (Note: Those powdered creamers are not an option. While I don't hate people, but I do hate some things. I don't like root canals, I don't like getting pulled over for speeding. I HATE dropping food on the floor and my dogs grabbing it before I can. In regards to coffee I HATE Coffeemate. And I HATE even more, that fraudulent cream, aka liquid Coffeemate they sell in the dairy cooler at the supermarket. Query, since Coffeemate is non-dairy, why do they sell it in the refrigerated section? Because it is a SCAM, that's why. I digress, forgive me.)
Anyway, my solution to hot coffee rendered warm or cool (because I poured cold Half & Half into the cup) was to MICROWAVE the coffee and cream, for about a minute, voila! a hot cup of coffee. That was OK but sometimes I would spill coffee inside the microwave, on the counter, or on the floor. After trying a few other solutions I found out about a "milk warmer" and frother (having lattes would be an additional bonus, I concluded).
Note: I tried all kinds of things to warm up the Half & Half, including a kettle that heats water (OK, but hard to clean. And sometimes the H & H would foam and overflow). Also tried those little water heaters that's a coil dropped into water except I put it into the cream. No way, those are a fire hazard.
After deciding to buy a milk frother I put many hours research into this purchase, NOT because of the money, but because I wanted one that would perform well, clean easy, and would last a few years under daily use (two coffees every morning). After watching videos on YouTube and reading reviews on Amazon I settled on getting the Chefs Star Premier Frother.
What made me finally decide on the Chef's Star was a video on YouTube titled something like "The Top Ten Milk Frothers." #1 was a $200 machine. No way I'm paying $200 for a "Half & Half warmer." When I checked for pricing on # 2 on the list, this Chefs Star, I was happy to see it was selling for less than $50 on places like Amazon. # 2 on the list and less than $50, I'm all in on that deal. I checked a few others, but decided on the Chefs Star because everywhere I looked THIS model was always highly rated.
Summary of this Model: Pictures and video do NOT do this justice. I was "SHOCKED" (well maybe not shocked, but very surprised) at the quality of materials and manufacture of this machine. By that I mean:
- Lifting it out of the box I immediately noted it was heavy and had a quality feel to it. That was a good sign.
- The stainless steel is thick, not thin metal as many manufacturers use to keep cost down. (The thick metal acts as insulation from the heat the appliance generates. When this is operating you can touch the container anywhere and it does NOT burn).
- Even the plastic lid is thick. The lid is polished to where it does not have pores. Pores collect liquids and eventually may create microscopic bacteria, or simply start to stink. Nonporous surfaces also make cleanup easier. The lid has nonstick effect to it.
- The handle is well made and firmly attached to the container.
- The non-stick coating inside is thick and firmly applied. It is similar to nonstick coatings on the more expensive pots and pans.
- The overall fit and finish makes this feel and look like a $200 appliance, something made by Krups or Cuisinart.
Pros and Cons
Cons: There are none. Yeah, you can find some flaws, but I could not any, not worth talking about or that mattered to me.
Pros: Quality manufacture, quality materials.
Easy to use. Marks inside for min and max fill easy to see.
The separate stir and whisk attachments are magnetic. So they are easy to attach and remove.
Performs great, both as a milk or liquid warmer, or milk frother. Heats Half & Half sufficiently hot to keep my coffee HOT after adding heated cream/milk.
Makes huge amount of foam for a latte.
Easy to clean.
And finally, an excellent value (I paid less than $50 shipping included. But six months later the price is down to $30 with free shipping!)
Note: I stuck my finger into the milk as it was being heated. It heated the Half & Half to the point I had to remove my finger as it was getting too hot. Fluids are NOT heated steaming hot, but liquids get sufficiently hot.
Note: There is no adjustment for heat. (That makes it easy to use.) I have cycled the machine twice to see if that makes the Half & Half hotter after the second cycle, but the machine must have a safety thermostat. It senses the heat of the liquid and if at max temp it will not heat liquid hotter, even if you cycle the contents multiple times..
Some Tips and Tricks
- There's one whisk and one stirrer included with the machine. The stirrer is quite tiny, the size of a pea. That is easily lost or misplaced, so pay attention here:
I keep the lesser-used whisk in an empty prescription bottle and that's stored in a cabinet. Why stow it? IMO when heating liquids, milk for example, will splash on to the lid and into the nooks and crannies of the whisk. End result, you will have to use unnecessary extra effort to clean the whisk or stirrer stowed inside the lid. So if you are not using an attachment stow it in a container and keep it in a kitchen cabinet.
- Be mindful of the guide lines on the inside of the container. There's a line showing MINIMUM fill, and MAX fill, for heating liquids or when using the frother.
Why the minimum fill mark? If you do not place enough liquid in the container you risk BURNING and DAMAGING the device's internal heating element. (Basically, liquid or a substance acts as a coolant for the electrical heating element, just as your car's radiator cools the engine. Filling to the MIN line assures the element will not overheat and burn out. Bottom line, if you break rules this should NOT be one of em. Always fill to the minimum mark.) Note: When people complain about their machine no longer heats liquids it is a safe bet they "fried" the heating element because they did not have liquid inside, or not enough.
What about filling beyond the MAX line? Oy vey, all kinds of things will happen and not happen. Firstly, your milk or liquid may not fully heat. Second, the little machine that could, won't... make foam that is. These machines are precisely engineered to foam and heat liquids. Someone spent months getting things just right on this machine, including where to put the MAX fill line.
Interesting, too little or too much liquid may cause the liquid to spill over on to the counter, or worse, splash everywhere, requiring you to have your cat lick it up, or spend five minutes cleaning up surfaces. You also don't want to risk splashing liquid on your nice silk robe, $100 tie or satin blouse.
- Always place the lid on machine. The main concern is splashing. Also if you fill to the max line, the lid has a rubber gasket that assures the liquid will not spin overflow over the rim of the machine. When I have whisked milk or heated it, I have seen drops of milk splatter on the lid. Note: The less amount of liquid in the machine the more the stirrer will splatter. The lid is there for a reason, use it.
Note: When in a pinch you can place anything on the top to act as a lid. The lid is simply plastic. There's no switches, locks, or other mechanical functionality to it. Bonus Tip: I stowed my lid, no need for it. I now use a 4.25" plastic lid from a Trader Joe's coffee can. It fits perfect on the lip, works well in preventing splashing, and it cleans in five seconds under the faucet. I also use a small Corning glass bowl and doubles as a lid and place to stow a small spoon I use to stir my coffee, and a brush I use to scoop the cream out of the container and into the cup.
- Don't let your kids operate this. You just know they will turn it on without the lid in place, just to watch it in action. End result, a big mess. (Note: Don't freak out if you can't find the lid and get it in place in time. In a pinch use a paper towel or a small plate. Better to splat on a plate than cleaning milk off a zillion surfaces, or God forbid, your silk tie or blouse.)
- If you are like me and just want to heat milk, use the stirrer, NOT the whisk (the whisk has a coiled wire).
- I used the wire whisk to make latte foam and the thing worked fantastic. The wire whisk turns Half and Half into "whip cream," so to speak.
- Heat: The stainless steel container is very well designed, and with your safety in mind. I kid you not, after heating the milk the stainless side does not feel hot to the touch. You could kiss it and your lips would not suffer injury. Because of this feature (it is well insulated) there's no warnings anywhere (on the machine or in the manual) that says "HOT SURFACE!"
- Pouring: You will notice there is not a dramatic pouring spout designed in the metal. On the edge opposite the handle there's a slight curve, that is the spout. You really don't need a pronounced spout on a machine like this. But when pouring heated milk POUR SLOWLY so that milk does not spill on the side or go everywhere except in the cup.
- Nonstick Coating: Don't ruin the nonstick coating. I suggest you buy a package of plastic picnic spoons (or take some from your deli or Starbucks the next time you eat). Use a plastic spoon to scoop out foam. DO NOT USE METAL SPOONS because no matter how careful you are over time the nonstick coating will get damaged.
- Also, when cleaning DO NOT USE ANYTHING THAT WILL SCRATCH THE SURFACE. (Inside information: Nonstick coatings are living, breathing creatures. So be gentle on Mr. Nonstick Coating. Besides, how would you like it if someone took a Brillo pad to your face.)
- Pre-Drinking Cleaning: Right after I have made my coffee I immediately rinse the frother, clean it, and dry it with a paper towel. Even if I am intending to have two cups of coffee I still clean the machine because I might get distracted and never have that second cup.
So as we all do, we forget to clean the machine and have to attend to it later. That's not a catastrophe, but the milk ends up getting caked on into the nooks, crannies, and crevices, making cleanup all the more laborious. It takes very little time to clean it so why not do it ahead of time.
Bonus Tip: I have put water into the machine and let it cycle. I then let the machine sit. If I forget to clean the machine, the water has made cleanup a lot easier, even the next day.
Bonus Tip: I have used this to reheat my coffee that as cooled down. It works very well. It holds about six ounces. If I have more cooled coffee than that I get a second cup and use this device to heat a couple batches of coffee.
Secret Recipe: The other day I did something really cool. I had my ice cream, but no whip cream. I used my Half & Half with the whisk / frother attachment. After making a batch of "whip cream" I added about two tablespoons of maple syrup while the machine was running. I had a wonderful tasting "butterscotch" topping on my ice cream. I will be doing that on a regular basis!
- Cleaning: Obviously, never put the container in the dishwasher. And even though I can, I never place the lid in the dishwasher.
I use three things for cleanup: Hot water, a plastic bristle brush (such as that comes with hair coloring), and paper towels. I do NOT use dish soap, but when I do, I use just a little.
First, remove the whisk or stirrer from the machine AND PLACE IT IN A SAFE PLACE, where it is not going to fall into the disposer, or drop on the floor and bounce under the stove, or if you are in my house, taken by one of dogs and chewed into little pieces or swallowed. (Note: I saw replacement stirrers and whisks for sale on the Internet, for $10 each.) Tip, put it inside a clear drinking glass in a cabinet.
Second, rinse out the container and rinse off the lid. I then use the angled small brush to clean around the whisk and clean out the milk that has lightly bonded to the bottom of the container. Also brush the edges. (We are talking about 15 seconds here.)
Third, use paper towels to dry everything. A cloth towel in the kitchen is a bacteria factory. I don't use cloth dish towels in the kitchen, I use paper towels for everything.
While the above sounds like a lot of work, cleanup takes about 60 seconds.
- Air dry: Place the lid upside down and atop the container so that everything can air dry. Leave a gap between the lid and container so air gets inside the container. If you press the lid into place that will form an airtight seal. That's not good. Sometimes moisture will form inside. Moisture trapped in a closed container is not good. Over the long term bacteria or mold can form. Yes, this is unlikely, but why risk it.
- Bonus Tip: When using this machine, or cleaning, or changing whisks, always do so over a kitchen counter. That way if you drop something it will not break, or dent.
- Bonus Tip: I am buying a spare stirrer and whisk. I cannot afford to be out of action, not even for one morning. So when I lose the stirrer I can use the spare. Always plan ahead.
Bonus Tip: I have my unit sitting inside a small stainless bowl. If there's overflow the content will spill into the bowl, not on to the counter. That happened once and I was glad I had the bowl to catch the Half & Half.
That's it. There's a test tomorrow. I have set your browser to come back to this page and administer a 100-question exam. (I don't grade on the curve, and 70% is an "F"). Good luck.
My favorite recipe so far;
Teaspoon coconut oil
3 teaspoons coco powder
2 teaspoons sugar
Almond milk to top froth/heat line
Only negative I find is there isn't a straight "heat" setting.
Second favorite recipe is a bit of a bullet coffee idea.
1 square/pat of butter
1 teaspoon coconut oil
2 teaspoons sugar
Whole milk to max froth/heat line
We've also done this with 2 teaspoons chocolate powder added.
You may want to buy a mini silicone scrapper to gather the foam off the bottom. I wash mine immediately after each use to keep it like new. Using a soft wet sponge, wipe inside as it is turned upside down (to keep water/soap from going where it's not supposed to) then dry, and put away.
