Perfectly frothed milk is an essential element of any latte or frappuccino, and the secret to creating it is ensuring your milk is at the perfect temperature. As milk is heated during the steaming, frothing or foaming process, the proteins within it start to break down and release sugars. However, heat the milk to much and it will start to scald and burn, turning that sweet taste you’re looking for into something much more bitter.
The temperature you’re aiming for is between 150°F - 165°F, or 65°C - 70°C. This thermometer for frothing milk reads temperatures in both celcius and farenheit, plus we’ve marked off this sweet spot for you on the easy read dial so you know when your milk is ready.
This stainless steel milk thermometer includes a clip so you can securely attach it to your milk jug whilst you froth and steam. Start by foaming the milk, with your steam wand just below the surface, until your temperature gauge reads 40°C - 45°C. Now you need to texture the milk and this is done by slightly angling the jug to create a whirlpool effect. When your thermometer hits about 60°C turn the steam wand off, this is because there is typically a delay in the action of both the steam and the reading of the thermometer so you will see the temperature continue to rise until it heats that sweet spot.
Your milk thermometer has a maximum temperature of 220°F so you can use your it to check the temperature of a range of liquids including hot beverages, soups and stocks. If you want to check meats and sugar etc, or get the temperature of your oven or grill, a more specialised thermometer is recommended.
