While there's nothing better than a rich cappuccino or latte from your favorite cafe, many of us are primarily making coffee at home these days. If you've become somewhat of an amateur barista during quarantine but miss the specialty beverages at your favorite coffee shop, you're going to want to pick up this compact electric milk frother that will give your coffee the upgrade you've been looking for.

The Zulay Electric Milk Frother is simple to use, clean, and store. Just dip it in your beverage and you'll have delicious froth and foam in seconds. It's obviously a helpful tool for coffee, but you can also use it for hot chocolate, matcha, protein shakes, and more. The frother is available in 22 colors and comes with a handy metal stand for storage. Plus, it's impressively easy to clean up after you've made your drink, since all you have to do is run the whisk under water to rinse it off.

Shoppers clearly agree that this electric milk frother is a must-have for coffee lovers, seeing as it has over 27,000 five-star reviews on Amazon. "This device is way better than I expected it to be for the price, it frothed milk in about 10-15 seconds, which is a lot quicker than it says in the instructions. It has a very powerful motor for the size, and the whisk part cleans up quick and easy," one reviewer wrote.

Another shopper who knows a thing or two about coffee said that the milk frother is barista-approved. "I used to be a barista and the only thing I missed about it was the ability to make milk foam with the steam wand attached to the espresso machine. But this milk frother is better. Yes, BETTER."
