This handheld milk frother is the best kitchen gadget I bought in 2022, and it’s just $8

As someone who writes about home products for a living, I’ve tested my fair share of kitchen gadgets. This year alone I’ve decked out my kitchen with everything from professional-grade blenders to pricey nonstick cookware sets, but my favorite purchase last year was surprisingly the least expensive item I bought: the Zulay Milk Frother. It's the one kitchen appliance I use every day, and it can be yours right now for a mere $8 on Amazon, down from the still-affordable regular price of $12.

This handheld frother has taken my morning coffee to the next level. In just seconds, I’m able to transform any type of milk into the thick and creamy foam needed for my lattes and cappuccinos. I also use it to make matcha tea, as I found it’s so much easier (and faster) to use than a traditional matcha whisk. The electric whisk is even useful for making protein drinks or pre-workout beverages as it combines the powder and liquids much better than stirring or shaker bottles do.

I love how easy it is to clean. All you have to do is rinse it with warm water and wipe it down with a towel. And it runs on two AA batteries, so I don’t have to worry about keeping it charged. I’ve had it for a few months now and still haven’t had to swap out the batteries yet, which is a bonus!

And I’m not the only one who is a fan! More than 10,000 verified Amazon shoppers are just as obsessed with the handheld gadget as I am. “This is a great frother for the price! I bought this to froth milk for my lattes and I love it. It is so easy to use and clean,” raved one.

Another called it their “favorite kitchen tool” before adding, “I use it for pre-workout, powder greens, and protein drinks every single day. Blends amazing and is so quick and easy!” Others love the handheld frother so much they’ve bought multiple! One wrote, “I’ve purchased one for home, work, travel and friends…proof enough for my obsession?!”

Perhaps my favorite part, the frother actually saves me money. For just $8, I’ve been able to make barista-worthy beverages from the comfort of home — which has definitely curbed my near-daily trips to Starbucks, saving me hundreds of dollars in the long run. If you’re looking for an affordable way to enjoy delicious lattes at home, this is it.
