Nespresso Aeroccino 3 vs. Aeroccino 4 vs. Breville Milk Cafe, What’s The Difference?
One of the easiest way to prepare a creamy and frothy cup of Cappuccino or Latte is by using an electric milk frother that heats and froths up the milk in minutes. Aeroccino is a milk frother by Nespresso, and it is available as a stand-alone machine, bundled with a Nespresso espresso maker or built-in as with the CitiZ & Milk for example.
In this post, we’ll look at two of Aeroccino’s models: the Aeroccino 3 and Aeroccino 4. We’ll look at their features and the difference between them.
Features of Nespresso Aeroccino 4:
- Electric milk frother, detachable from base, that heats and froths milk.
- Stainless steel housing
- Can create hot or cold froth.
- Choose from 2 type of hot froth: Airy (perfect for Cappuccinos) or Dense (Perfect for Macchiato). Another Hot Milk option is used for Latte or Hot Chocolate.

Features of Nespresso Aeroccino 3:
- Stainless steel pitcher with plastic housing.
- Single button operation.
- Can make hot or cold froth.

Aeroccino 3 vs. 4, What’s The Difference?
The Aeroccino 4 has been updated from the Aeroccino 3 to include features for better operation and easier cleaning.
- Aeroccino 4 has a better design, with a nice stainless steel body, a handle and a base with more option buttons.
- Aeroccino 3 has stainless steel interior but plastic exterior, no handle and only a single button.
- Aeroccino 4 offers more froth options: Airy froth, Dense froth, Hot Milk or Cold. Each option has a dedicated button on the base. No need to switch whisks, a single whisk does all frothing options.
- Aeroccino 3 has two froth options: Dense foam for Cappuccino or lighter foam for latte or hot chocolate. It includes a single whisk, but if you want less foam, you’ll have to remove the whisk and operate the frother without it.
- Both Aeroccino frothers can be easily hand washed.
- But, only Aeroccino 4 is dishwasher safe.
- Aeroccino 3 is NOT dishwasher safe.
Aeroccino 4 vs. Breville Milk Cafe, What’s The Difference?
The Breville Milk Cafe is definitely one of the best choice for an electric milk frother, despite it being a bit more costly than other options, it’s still one of the best selling frothers because it offers a lot of value for its money. The Breville Milk Cafe is actually a step (or two!) up from the Aeroccino, here’s how:
- It uses induction heating for making consistently great froth.
- Stainless steel exterior and interior – no teflon or any non-stick lining.
- Temperature control: choose how warm or hot you want your milk froth.
- Can prepare cold froth, too.
- Includes two frothing whisks: one for Cappuccino and another for Latte.
- You can add ingredients directly into the frothing as it’s whisking the milk: add chocolate syrup, chocolate powder or shavings.
- Large capacity. Makes up to 3 cups of froth at once.
So, as you can see, it’s quite different in how it operates in comparison to both Aeroccino 3 and 4. It has a large capacity pitcher, it has temperature control and ingredients can be added directly to it…. these are the type of features that set it apart from other frothers.
