Design of the Nespresso milk frother
Inside the milk frother


  • Sturdy, sleek, and compact.
  • Detachable power base.
  • 2-in-1 metal whisk.
  • Non-stick surface.

Aeroccino 3 milk frother by Nespresso has design poles apart from the conventional. It is an electric milk frother with a detachable corded base, so pouring and cleaning is easy.

The frother has a compact cylindrical thermos-shaped structure of 3.9 x 3.9 x 7.2 inches housed in stainless steel. While the interior has an easy-to-clean non-stick coat, the exterior has a black coat that adds a sleek and elegant touch. What adds to the aesthesis is the engraved brand name.

Aeroccino 3 features a 2-in-1 detachable and washable metal whisk to create flat milk for a latte and foam for a cappuccino. The lid is of transparent food-grade acrylic.

This new edition of the Nespresso milk frother has a firm, slim line base. Hence, whether in use or not, it sits comfortably on the platform and the corner shelf of my kitchen.

For hot drinks just press the button for 1 second


  • One button for all preparation.
  • Make hot milk froth and cold foam.
  • Human-interface LED indicator.

What sets the NespressoAeroccino 3 milk frother stand out in the competition is its settings and performance (the next segment). Aeroccino 3 is the perfect morning appliance you can operate even half asleep without messing up or burning yourself. The internal walls have markings.

It has a single touch-button for all preparation—hot milk froth and cold foam (for iced coffee). I tried both. A 1-second press prepares the hot froth, and a 2-second press the cold milk foam.

The best thing was the indicating LED lights on the button–red light for the first press and blue for the 2-second. There is an indicator on the power base too.

I got approx. 4.1 oz. of hot and cold milk froth and 8.1 oz. of hot milk in the tick of sixty seconds (after measuring).

Froth quality

  • Perfect warm milk.
  • An inch-high froth.
  • Coffee stays warm.

The love affair I have with frothy coffee is unimaginable. And this Aeroccino milk frother just accentuated my delight. Around half the poured milk is pure foam, and the other half beneath is rightly warmed—between 160-170˚F. It’s what I want for my coffee. 

And the best part is the coffee stay warm for a long time.

I poured the warm milk, and still, there was plenty of milk froth to top the coffee. It created if not more, at least an inch-high frothy layer. The cold foam was the same high. It prepares flat and froth milk, perfect for latte art, Café au Lait, or a simple cappuccino.

A sip of them felt like a tiny break from the daily chores, which I wanted to linger on for a few more minutes but time prohibited.

  • Auto-shut mode.
  • No tracking is needed.
  • Work barely silent.

Besides the velvety froth achieved in just a minute, two features impressed me the most—the barely audible sound and the intelligent auto-shut feature.

While the machine is not totally silent, its sound travels only a few inches. For instance, if you live in a studio or one-room apartment with a roommate, it is probably the last sound to wake him.

It is an appliance where you hardly need to track the frothing process. While the small light on the power base indicates the working mode, once the task finishes, the appliance shuts immediately.


  • Easy-to-clean
  • Partly dishwasher-safe.

Being an appliance with a detachable power base cleaning the milk frother becomes hassle-free. The milk does not crust onto the sides, but the froth needs a bit of an extra wipe to ensure all the loosely sticking foam rinse away. I rinsed it in the sink with warm soapy water immediately after use.

The vessel is not dishwasher safe. However, the small whisk with the spiral detachable attachment and lid is absolutely dishwasher-safe. But who wants to use the dishwasher twice, thrice, daily?


  • Energy efficient

Like all other Nespresso appliances, Aeroccino 3 milk frother is energy-efficient. It consumes only 550 watts power for working and without wasting 1 unit shuts automatically after use.

Price & Warranty

  • Budget-friendly.
  • Two years manufacturer’s warranty

The Nespresso milk frother as a standalone appliance costs $98. The price may vary as per levied offers. It also comes bundled with a Vertuo Plus or Vertuo Next at a price quite reasonable. In general, it fits in the budget, but to those for whom it may seem a little high, the investment pays. This appliance stays for years.

As stated “Nespresso warrants the product against defects in materials and workmanship for a period of two years from the date of purchase. During this period, Nespresso will either repair or replace at its discretion any defective product at no charge to the owner.

Tips for using the Aeroccino 3 milk frother

So the quality of milk froth stays unhindered, I recommend some tips:

  • Verify that the jug is clean.

  • Use the right whisk for the appropriate need—the spiral attachment for frothy cappuccino and the metal disc for flat latte art.
  • If you’re an amateur like me, never keep the lid sealed while it’s not in use. Else this hinders ventilation and creates odor.
