Creating micro-foam is a challenge even for the professional. It requires introducing the right amount of air, integrating it evenly throughout the milk, as well as frothing to the right temperature. Above 150 F (65 C) milk fat starts to separate from the proteins in the milk, creating a watery layer and making micro-foam difficult to achieve. The Temp Control Milk Jug has an integrated thermometer indicator strip to help you texture milk to the optimum temperature range.
Integrated thermometer for texturing milk to the optimum temperature. Temperature markings shown in both Celsius and Fahrenheit with a range of 130 F to 170 F (55 C to 65 C). It is made with premium thick gauge stainless steel with a spout designed for pouring latte art. For use with steam wands on espresso machines.
16-oz. capacity; 4 3/4" wide, 3 1/4" deep, 4 1/4" high. Model # BES003. Made in China.
I am still working on getting the right amount of milk in this froth jug. It's pretty small so I tend to overfill it. If it is very bright in your kitchen it is a little hard to see the changing colours on the jug. Other than that, it's well made and eliminates the need for the thermometer which is nice. The company is fabulous. Received the product within a week of ordering. Wow! Even during COVID! I will definitely be ordering more items from ECS.
