Starbucks Verismo Milk Frother Review

Last Updated on September 2, 2021 by YourBestCoffeeMachine

The Starbucks Verismo Milk Frother will produce hot or cold frothed or steamed milk or milk alternatives for your homemade beverages in ninety seconds.

The frother includes a separate attachment for warming the milk for your beverage. Overall, we think this is a good option if you’re in the United States. In other countries, the Dualit or Lavazza model offer similar features.

The frother is durable, simple and easy to use and will automatically froth all types of milk and milk alternatives at the touch of a button. It produces hot or cold milk froth and steamed milk.

Starbucks Verismo Milk Frother Features

The Starbucks Verismo Milk Frother is fully automatic and has one touch button operation.

It will automatically switch itself off after milk is steamed or frothed. The mechanism (the whisk is attached to) that is used to froth milk is attached to the lid of the frother and connected to carafe with metal contacts to the side of the lid. Ensure the metal contacts on both the carafe and lid are properly in line when closing the lid.

How does Starbucks Verismo Milk Frother Work ?

A quick 1 second press of the frother button will produce hot froth. Hold the button for 3 seconds (until the button turns blue) to produce cold froth. It doesn’t get simpler than that.

The Verismo Milk Frother is Easy to Clean

The carafe is made of plastic with metal liner and has a nonstick coating that allows for easy cleaning. To clean frother simply wipe exterior and hand wash inside the carafe with non-abrasive cloth. The carafe is NOT dishwasher safe; when cleaning do NOT submerge the carafe in water. All other parts of the frother are dishwasher safe.

Verdict on the Starbucks Verismo Milk Frother – 4.5 stars

The Starbucks Verismo Milk Frother does a great job in producing hot or cold frothed milk and steamed milk for coffee beverages.

The hot frothed milk produced could be a bit hotter for espresso coffee beverages. It can be troublesome to get frothing assembly working as the lid has to be securely connected to carafe, at times the motor does not work in assembly due to improper connection. However this is also a safety feature and ensures that the lid is secure and milk will not overflow if you’ve accidentally overfilled it.

Overall, we give the Starbucks Verismo Milk Frother 4.5 stars.

  1. While it is not bad — when it works — ours lasted 6 weeks. Poor quality control. This seems to be an issue with a lot of Starbucks branded items, in our experience. They are dragging the brand downward with their choice of products that they slap the brand on.

  2. I do not answer these but I have had my frothed for over 5 years it has never given me trouble I’d like to think you have been unlucky sorry
