Coffee enthusiasts are in the habit of making a mental note every time they have an exceptional cup of coffee somewhere. This has probably happened to you in your favorite coffee shop, a camping trip or at a friend’s place where you taste a coffee recipe and you can’t help but ask “what in the world did you do to this coffee?”
More often than not, a good cup of Joe will be as a result of several factors: quality coffee beans, a good coffee machine and a quality milk frother(See other top rated milk frothers).
If you happen to have all the components of making good coffee and the only missing link to you having great coffee is a milk frother, then I have the perfect milk frother for you: the PowerLix Milk frother which is nothing short of magical.
This little contraption in my opinion is a work of genius that most coffee lovers will appreciate. It has never been easier to whip yourself up a coffee latte regardless of whether you are indoors or outdoors.
The PowerLix Milk frother defined
The PowerLix Milk frother is a cordless hand held device. That’s right! Cordless! It is powered by two double “A” batteries that work your milk to froth in a matter of seconds. It is also portable which mean that it can even be carried in your front shirt pocket with ease or squeezed somewhere in your purse, a pocket in your suitcase or a money bag alongside other items. Here are a few things that made me fall in love with this milk frother in the first place.
1. How the PowerLix Milk frother works
At a glance, this milk frother looks somewhat like a slender wine glass, but at a closer inspection you will realize it is a cordless portable battery operated frothing wand.
This frothing wand is super easy to operate as all it takes is slipping the two AA batteries into place and it’s good to go.
It works on both cold and hot milk and all you have to do is get your milk ready in a glass or ordinary cup, plunge the wand half way into the glass and power the device.
Just be sure to gently keep moving it up and down as it whirs away. It will get your milk frothy in literally 15 to 20 seconds. Shut off the device once you have the desired amount of froth. Your frothy milk is now ready for making a delicious latte, cappuccino or chocolate milk.
2. Ease of cleaning
Cleaning the PowerLix Milk frother is a breeze. It is easier to clean it right after use by simply dipping the wand in soapy water, a hot glass of water or wiping it with a wet cloth.
If you wait for it dry up before cleaning, it will mean spending a bit of time and effort trying to remove the stuck coffee. It is far easier and quicker to dip it in a glass of hot water after use, whiz it up and it’s ready for storage until the next time you need it.
3. Thoughtful design
The design is pretty nifty and minimalist. The gadget is made of stainless steel with an ergonomic handle that exudes comfort and style. It looks great on any kitchen counter and comes with an equally stylish stand that ensures the wand does not touch the countertop when not in use.
I must be honest, the first time I used it I felt a little like James Bond. The design gives you the impression that this is the sort of gadget James Bond would pull out of his blazer pocket and froth his milk for a cappuccino, dip it in a glass of hot water, whizz it up and put it right back in his blazer.
It is a cool, practical and efficient piece of equipment for those who love their beverages whipped up in no time.
