Just about everyone is looking for ways to save money these days, and that might mean fewer trips to Starbucks or the local coffee shop. If you’re making your own coffee at home more often, you might be interested in adding some fancier touches, maybe with a special coffee maker or even an espresso machine, or even something as simple as a flavored creamer. There are all kinds of ways to make coffee at home look and taste a little more like what you’d get at the coffee shop.
Aldi rotates all kinds of coffee-making machines and accessories onto the shelves in its middle aisle, and I’ve seen everything from coffee pod organizers to single serve machines to iced coffee makers and even retro coffee makers.
One of the latest coffee gadgets to show up in the weekly Aldi ad is a handheld milk frother, and it’s sold alongside a frothing pitcher, which you must purchase separately.
A milk frother aerates milk, adding tiny bubbles that give it more volume and a foamy consistency. Frothed milk is great with coffee, espresso, cappuccino, machiattos, mochas, tea lattes, and even hot chocolate. The milk helps to balance out coffee’s naturally bitter flavor.
Now, Aldi is selling a handheld frother, and we’re curious to know if it’s better than the other Aldi milk frother.
What We Know:
The Ambiano Handheld Frother and the Ambiano Frothing Pitcher (Product Code: 707751) each cost $7.99 at the time of publication.
At the time of writing, handheld frothers with decent reviews on Amazon start at around $9 and go up into the teens, with a few topping out at more than $20. The Aldi handheld frother is cheaper than most frothers I found on Amazon, but not necessarily by a lot. The same goes for frothing pitchers, where on Amazon they start around $11 and go up from there.
These are Aldi Finds, so they’re in stores for just a short time. Each store will receive one shipment, and once they sell out, they’re gone until Aldi decides to bring them back, if ever. Aldi doesn’t offer online ordering for products that are not in stock at your local store.
Here’s more information on the frothers and frothing pitchers, according to Aldi:
- Frothers available in Pale Aqua, Black, or White
- Features include quick-touch button, stainless steel stand, and double whisk design
- Stainless steel frothing pitcher has 12-oz. capacity
- Features drip-less spout; heat-resistant stainless steel
- Dishwasher safe
What We Don’t Know:
We haven’t tried the Ambiano Handheld Frother or Ambiano Frothing Pitcher, so we don’t know how well they work or how durable they are. Our purpose in writing open threads is to create a space where readers can talk about Aldi products.
