We’ve previously compared Capresso’s milk frother FrothPRO, FrothPLUS and FrothTEC. Since Capresso’s frothers are more affordable in price, we thought we’d compare it to the more expensive Nespresso Aeroccino. As both seemingly do the same thing, we all come to wonder if there’s an actual difference to justify the price. Here’s our comparison:

Which One Should You Buy?

Capresso frothPRO

The Capresso FrothPRO is packed with features, making it a great value for its price. It is larger in capacity, and unlike the Aeroccino, it is able to make Warm milk or froth. The pitcher is dishwasher safe, making it easier to clean. However, the one concern is the coating of the pitcher. Although it is scratch resistant, this type of coating tends to scratch or peel over time.

Nespresso Aeroccino Plus

The Nespresso Aeroccino lacks a few of the FrotherPRO’s features, but it is still an excellent frother. Its stainless steel construction gives it a very durable body that will not scratch at all. It’s also quicker, it only takes 60 to 70 secs to complete.
