-Frothing milk manually, without adding steam, produces a lighter, longer lasting froth.
-Use this glass beaker with manual pump action to make froth to spoon onto all your coffee drinks, hot chocolate, even desserts. Cream, hot or cold milk and or non-fat milk froths beautifully.

The Norpro glass froth master is a frother that’s one of a kind. Unlike the usual frothers in the market, it is neither battery-operated nor electrically-powered. How does it work then? By utilizing a single pump mechanism. 

Basically, you just have to pour some milk into the frother and have it covered by its lid. Press and release the black rubber receptacle for about 10 to 20 seconds and you will be surprised to see some frothed milk. If you prefer some warm milk, just pop it into the microwave.

You can achieve the texture of your choice since it’s manually done. 20 seconds in and you still want more texture? Then keep pumping!

Five major features

  1. Pumping mechanism

One of the strong points of this frother is that it saves you money in the long run since you need not buy batteries nor increase your electricity consumption. You only need to pump the device to froth your milk. A downside, however, is that it has no capacity to heat up your milk.

A lot may be wondering if this simple mechanism actually serves some great froth. Well, based on first-hand users, it does! The longer you pump, the better the froth it yields. 

  1. Two-cup capacity

The beaker has a 16-ounce capacity, therefore, it can froth two 8-ounce cups. The 20-second general frothing duration is enough for the 2 cups of milk to turn into a velvety texture. 

  1. Tempered glass beaker

The beaker’s body is made of tempered glass which is about four to five times stronger than an average glass. In other words, it is not as easy to break compared to others. And did you know that even if it does, it will break circular pieces instead of the usual jagged-edged fragments? It is actually easier to pick circular pieces up. 

To make things straight, this simply means that it is durable. Tempered glass is also known to be lighter than normal glass. So it’s sturdy without having to be heavy.

  1. Recipes and instructions

The manufacturer is kind enough to include some recipes users can try. There are different variants of coffees, so it is a thoughtful add-on to have this unit come with some instructions on how to create different types. It also comes with a user manual for clear instructions on how to handle the unit. 

  1. Detachable base

A detachable base always contributes to easier washing and transport. The Norpro frother is not dishwasher-friendly, so it’s really helpful to have the option to remove the base. 

To clean, just separately wash the lid, the beaker, and the base. Soak the components in warm soapy water for a few seconds and rinse. Take note that you do not have to wash the frother all the time, you only need to rinse the interior of the beaker after every use. 

Why should you invest on a Norpro glass froth master?

  1. Manually-operated

Although this is manually-operated, it is said to yield longer lasting froths. As we have mentioned, this will help you save money since it doesn’t need batteries nor electricity. All it takes is manual pumping with no operational cost. Sounds good to me!

  1. Aesthetically  pleasing

With a stainless steel cover, transparent glass body, black base and receptacle, this frother is a joy to look at. It is aesthetically pleasing and will surely sit beautifully on your kitchen countertop. It also has no cord and that in itself adds to its appeal.

  1. It is durable

As mentioned, the beaker is made of tempered glass which is relatively strong. Its lid and whisk is made of stainless steel which does not easily break either. Another great thing about this frother is that the glass and stainless steel components are corrosion- and rust- resistant so it will stay flawless for longer. 

  1. It comes with recipes and instruction booklet

The unit comes with a user manual that has also thoughtfully included some recipes to try using the frother. If you have the time to experiment, it will be a great idea to try the recipes out!

  1. Affordability

This efficient brother retails for only $12.95. By the way we see it, it definitely is one of the cheapest in the market without compromising the quality of the produced frothed milk. Despite its lacking features, you just simply have to remind yourself about its amazingly affordable price tag.
