Ensure your delicious frothy coffee is the ideal temperature with the Andrew James Milk Thermometer. Perfectly frothed milk is an essential element of any latte or cappuccino and the secret to creating it is ensuring that your milk is the perfect temperature. 

Why Do I Need a Milk Thermometer?

Using a quality milk thermometer ensures you don’t overheat your milk. As milk is heated during the steaming and frothing process, the proteins within it start to break down and release sugars. But if you heat your milk too much, it will start to scald and burn, turning that sweet taste you are looking to achieve into something much more bitter. 

What Temperature Should Frothed Milk Be?

The temperature you should aim for is between 150°F-165°F, or 65°C - 70°C. This handy thermometer reads temperatures in both celsius and fahrenheit, and we have also marked off this sweet spot for you on the easy-read dial so you know when your milk is ready. 

Any Other Tips?

This quality stainless steel milk thermometer includes a clip so you can securely attach it to your milk jug while you froth and steam. Start by foaming the milk with your steam wand below the surface, until the temperature gauge reads 40°C - 45°C. Now you need to create a texture for your milk, and this can be achieved by slightly angling the jug to create a whirlpool effect. When the thermometer hits around 60°C, turn the steam wand off as 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 reaches the spot on the easy-read dial.

What Else Can I Use My Milk Thermometer for?

Your milk thermometer has a maximum temperature of 220°F so you can use it to check the temperature of a range of liquids including hot beverages, soups, and stocks. If you want to check ingredients such as sugar, or even meat, or to obtain the temperature of your oven or grill, a specialised thermometer is recommended.

Frothy Drink Recipes that Your Thermometer Can Help with:

Caramel Macchiato

Ingredients:

  • 14oz Reduced Fat or Whole Milk
  • 2 Tbsp. Vanilla Syrup
  • 2 oz. Espresso
  • Caramel Sauce (to Drizzle)
  1. Prepare the espresso using a moka pot or espresso machine. While the espresso is being made, warm up the milk. Use your milk frother or a regular whisk instead until some foam forms. 
  2. Pour the espresso into a measuring cup and add the vanilla syrup and milk.
  3. Pour the espresso on top of the frothy milk, creating a ‘mark’ on the foam (Macchiato means ‘marked’ in Italian).
  4. Then, drizzle your caramel sauce on top.

Nutella Hot Chocolate* 

Ingredients:

  • 4 Cups of Low Fat/Skimmed Milk
  • 2 Tbsp. Nutella
  • 2 Tbsp. Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 2 Tbsp. Sugar
  • Marshmallows (Optional)
  • Extra Nutella (Optional)
  1. Use our milk frother to heat your milk, or warm up in a medium-sized saucepan on a medium to high heat until it begins to warm through and steam.
  2. Add the Nutella spread, cocoa powder, and sugar, and whisk until dissolved and combined.
  3. Bring to a gentle simmer while stirring and take off the heat.
  4. Serve with your marshmallows or other desired toppings.

Chai Tea Latte* 

Ingredients:

  • 2 Black Teabags
  • ¾ Cup Whole Milk
  • 2 Whole Cloves
  • 1 Tsp. Ground Cinnamon
  • ½ Tsp. Ground Ginger
  • ½ Tsp. Ground Cardamom
  • ½ Tsp. Ground Nutmeg
  • ½ Tsp. Ground Allspice
  • 2 Tbsp. Maple Syrup
  1. In a medium-sized saucepan, bring the water and spices to the boil.
  2. Whisk the spices in the water and once the water had reached full boil, turn off the heat and allow the spices to steep in the water for 5 minutes.
  3. After 5 minutes, turn the heat back on and add the black tea bag and maple syrup. Return to a slight boil and once the mixture has started boiling again, turn off the heat.
  4. Allow the tea bags to steep in the water and spices for 5 minutes.
  5. Remove the tea bags and strain the tea through a fine mesh strainer.
  6. Reserve ½ cup of chai tea for the latte, and store the rest of the chai tea in the fridge for up to 2 weeks of freshness.
  7. Use a milk frother and then stir in maple syrup as well as a pinch of cinnamon.
  8. Pour the ½ cup of chai tea in a mug and slowly add the warm, frothy milk.
  9. Sprinkle the top of the chai latte with an extra pinch of cinnamon if desired.

Milk Thermometer

The product arrived in a plastic shipping bag. Inside was a crushed box and inside that was the thermometer with a bent probe. Not very good.
