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

The frother includes a separate attachment for warming the milk for your beverage.

Starbucks Verismo Milk Frother Features

Easy to Use

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.

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.

Steam Milk

The Verismo will heat 8.5 ounces (250 ml) of milk for your coffee. The milk levels are indicated inside the carafe. Remove the wire whisk from the frothing assembly to steam milk.

Froth Milk

The Starbucks Verismo carafe is capable of frothing 5 ounces (150 ml) of milk. To froth milk, pour in desired milk, place wire whisk on the end of the plastic frothing assembly and push button on frother.

Other Features

  • Silent operation
  • Gripping base for easy removal of carafe.
  • Cordless carafe that removes from base for easy serving.
  • Easy removable wire whisk.


  • Excellent quality froth and steam milk.
  • Froth milk quickly and shuts off automatically.
  • Frother is quiet.
  • Frother can be easily stored after using and cleaning.


  • The frother will not froth milk for cold beverages. It will only produce steamed milk and hot frothed milk. It is therefore not ideal for cold beverages.
  • Frother does have a tendency to burn or scald milk if too little is used. From time to time customers do complain about frother burning milk.
  • The Starbucks Verismo Milk Frother frothing assembly is not very sturdy. Plastic at the end of frothing assembly with a round wire whisk connected to clip at the end.
  • There will be issues getting the frothing mechanism to run if the lid is not properly placed or the metal contacts require cleaning to make proper connection.
  • Frothed milk should be a bit hotter to be ideal for espressos.

  • Weight: 2.2 Pounds
  • Warranty: One Year Limited


The Starbucks Verismo Milk Frother does a great job in producing hot frothed milk and steamed milk for coffee beverages. However the frother is unable to froth milk for cold 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.

  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.
