There are three main categories of frothers based on their working mechanism. These are:
- Handheld Electric
As the name suggests, a manual milk frother will require physical input to achieve the frothing effect. It comes in two popular designs, a small battery-powered wand or a bigger component similar to a small French press. A handheld electric milk frother is powered by electricity and adopts a similar design as an electric hand mixer. The user holds it into a bowl and moves it around as it spins, causing the milk to form. Lastly, possibly the best milk frother available is the automatic milk frother. This is a powerful hands-free appliance that works in seconds to achieve an impressive frothing effect.

In addition to the foam, the frothers can also be used to slightly warm milk when a powerful device is used. They are a good investment that offers long-term service at an affordable cost.
