Becoming your own barista comes with plenty of perks. You save money, you don't have to leave the house for caffeine, and you cut down on single-use items (those paper coffee cups aren't recyclable). But you can only reap the benefits if you're enjoying the drinks you brew enough to cut things off with your local coffee shop. To replicate the best expertly made coffee drinks, a milk frother is a must-have.

The few bubbles you get from hand whisking oat milk doesn't hold a candle to the foamy goodness that you can get from an electric frother. Whether you're looking for an affordable option as your first or ready to upgrade to a more serious machine, you'll find four of the best milk frothers for you brew and your budget.

Miroco Electric Milk Steamer Soft Foam Maker — $42.00

Stepping up from handheld frothers, canister frothers allow you to heat your milk as well as froth it. I have the Miroco milk frother and I love it. It has two heated froth settings (dense foam and airy foam), one cold froth setting, and now to just heat. It works wonders with my go-to alt milks: Oatly oat milk and Tache pistachio milk. It’s on the smaller side, meaning you can only steam or froth enough milk for one. It is not machine washable.
