    Hot Milk Equipment

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hello ladies & gents,

    Im looking for the best equipment to heat milk (just milk with spices or Chai) with the following criteria:

    1) heats the milk or chai to a high temperature ([s]above 90 deg C[/s] as high as possible without burning..)
    2) long lasting, sturdy construction.
    3) easy to clean.
    4) can be electric or stovetop.
    5) faster is better!
    6) reasonable pricing (below 150$) for personal use.

    i dont know if coffee makers / steamers /equipment can be used for this purpose, but please let me know of any solutions, types, brands, models, or any other ideas that can help :)

    much appreciated!

    Unfortunately, I dont have any suggestions for you,
    but I would just like to recommend that you dont take the milk up to 90 degrees, the smell of burnt milk is repulsive!

    I dont think that a steamer solution will make much of a difference, the burning of milk happens when the temperature exceeds about 70 degrees, causing the denaturation of proteins within the milk.

    I dont know why you would bother. You will get the same result with a saucepan.

    alternatively you could get a soup kettle like cafes use to keep soup hot but I dont know what this would do to the milk.

    You could try the Bellman stovetop...not sure if it will come under 150 dollars but it wouldnt be much over.

    Or...just use a microwave.
