The Aeroccino 3 is a sleekly designed product about the size of a can of peaches that heats and froths milk to super fluffy consistency in about thirty seconds making for perfect cappuccinos, lattes or macchiatos.
The frother has a clever frothing mechanism consisting of a ring magnet rotor that fits over a vertical post inside the unit and spins rapidly in the presence of a rotating magnetic field, which is created in the stator coils embedded in its base.
What I like about it is that there is no waiting for steam to build up, no messy clean-up, no spatters on the counter top, no plunging a mechanical frother, etc. Just simply put the frothing rotor on the little post inside the vessel, pour in the milk to the graduated mark, press the button momentarily for warm froth or hold the button in for two seconds for cold froth. If you want warm milk with no froth, put on the non-froth rotor, pour in the milk and press the button. Voilà!

Unlike traditional lighters, the SaberLight features an electronic plasma beam that’s both rechargeable and butane-free. This sleek lighter is even approved by TSA, so you’ll never be stuck buying lighters you’ll just have to throw away partially used. For some people, like me, this is a pretty big game-changer. The SaberLight’s beam is actually both hotter and cleaner […]
