Price wise, the Aeroccino is a little under $100 while the Breville makes a more expensive choice with around $30 price difference (as of the time of writing this post, prices may change), which might make the Aeroccino more popular. However, when it comes to features, the Breville can give you a lot more than the Aeroccino, which justifies that price difference right away.


  • The Aeroccino takes up to 130ml of milk max for froth preparation and 250 ml for milk heating without froth.
  • As for the Breville, it has a higher capacity (max being 750 ml or 3 cups and minimum is 1 cup).

Whisks Included:

  • The Aeroccino has two whisks one for cappuccino and one for latte.
  • The Breville Milk Cafe has two whisks for thick Cappuccino froth and smooth Latte froth. With on-board storage for whisks.


  • The Aeroccino is very basic to use. Hit a button to get either hot or cold froth within 70 seconds.
  • The Breville is just as easy to use, but gives you more options. You can select your desired temperature, from warm to hot or cold. You can also create hot chocolate by adding chocolate sauce, powder or shaving directly to the frother.
  • The Breville Milk Cafe has a sensor that knows if you’ve filled it over the max capacity and it won’t operate if it’s over-filled.


  • The Aeroccino features a detachable base, stainless steel interior but it is NOT dishwasher safe.
  • The Breville Milk Cafe uses induction heating element with a detachable stainless steel pitcher that is fully removable and dishwasher safe. Making it a lot easier to use and clean.
  • Both units have clear lids so you can look through as your milk froths.

Which Is Best, The Breville Milk Cafe or Aeroccino Plus?

We definitely prefer the Breville Milk Cafe as it gives you more bang for your buck. It has features that aren’t available in other frothers like: Control of temperature, hot chocolate preparation and induction heat. It has the largest capacity, and being dishwasher safe is also a plus.
