  • Standalone Milk Steamers.

    Hey Guys,
    Been looking at options to steam milk in my house, but cannot seem to find exactly the type of machine i am looking for, i use aeropress for my primary brewing at home and i work as a barista full type on high-end equipment. I do not want one of these automatic milk whipping things they use with nespresso.
    The stove-top steamers look to be a good option but i would much prefer electric, could someone please point me in the direction of one of the machines featured in the youtube video "Rosco Hand Grinder and Rossa Hand Espresso - Basic Operation" (wont let me post links as first post)

    Thanks guys!

    Mate I sometimes see these machines (mostly older/vintage) on evilbay. There was a boema one last week I think, big boiler, two wands, two water taps, or similar, for about $100. It would be perfect for what you are looking for! Keep looking

        also if it becomes to difficult is it fairly easy to get a cheap espresso machine and ramp up boiler temperatures for decent steam if it is only being used as a steamer?

          site sponsor di bartoli have them on their website
          http://www.dibartoli.com.au/product/Bellman_CX25S_Stainless_Steel_Milk_Steamer

          I would be surprised if they were the only ones

          edit: oops sorry missed the "wanted electric" part :-[

          you could try that auction site for a Mr Cuppacino made by Black and Decker, might not have the oomph for microfoam though, should only cost you $20? to find out I would guess.

                If you mean the Calandra machines (basically an electric Bellman)- they steam very well. Largish boiler and high output element = loads of steam.
