This $7 Frother Is the Ultimate Kitchen Tool for Fluffy Foods and Drinks

Before the arrival of the novel coronavirus, I didn’t even know there was such a thing as a handheld milk frother. But as the pandemic wore on and the whipped Dalgona coffee craze hit my social media channels, the handy little device was the only prospective purchase on my mind. I’d read more than my fair share of Reddit posts claiming that a truly great frother would not only foam milk to perfection, but could be used to serve up the viral fluffy beverage sweeping my Instagram feed, among other things. After copious research, I decided to take the plunge with the Bonsenkitchen Electric Milk Frother. Amazon reviewers assured me it was a high-quality gadget, but I never could have anticipated just how much the single-button device can do. 

This milk frother is powerful, so much so, in fact, that I chose to use it over the sink for my first couple tries to avoid splattering liquid all over my kitchen. After a few uses, I was able to successfully migrate to the countertop without any spills. But the learning curve is worth it—even with my lack of expertise, the Bonsenkitchen frother foamed up the milk for my morning coffee in a matter of seconds and whipped up the dalgona coffee mixture in only a few minutes.

Repeatedly witnessing the strength of the frother made me curious as to how else I could use it. Soon enough, I found myself scouring Google for the best recipes using milk frothers, quickly learning that my device could be used to add extra air pockets to scrambled eggs before cooking, ensuring maximum fluffiness. Another unconventional use for the milk frother? It’s great for making homemade whipped cream, especially if you’d like to avoid the hassle (and cost) of a traditional hand mixer. Needless to say, I’ve spent the duration of this pandemic consuming variations of all the whipped, fluffy, and frothy recipes I can get my hands on.

The frother has more than 8,000 five-star reviews on Amazon, with many mentioning that it blends protein shakes to the perfect consistency. “Where has this been my entire life? This frother makes my life easier, in less than 20 seconds I have my shakes completely dissolved,” one reviewer wrote. It’s also easy to clean by hand: Just run the stainless steel end under the sink and scrub the way you would any other kitchen tool. 

The whipped coffee trend has long since passed, but I promise the milk frother from Bonsenkitchen still has all the makings of a holy grail tool for life at home. And with a price tag of just $7, it’s well worth the investment.

Ride-hailing unicorn Ola launched its food business, Ola Foods, in 2019. With its flagship brand Khichdi Experiment, Ola Foods made a blockbuster entry into the food segment. Pranay Jivrajka, CEO, Ola Foods, says, “Khichdi Experiment is India’s fastest food brand to reach one million orders and one of the fastest-growing categories on all platforms.”

Back in 2017, Ola acquired Foodpanda India for $200 million to enter the online food delivery business. Rumour was that it was taking on Uber — its biggest competitor — that had already launched UberEATS (later acquired by Zomato).

Ola Foods has a network of over 50 tech-enabled smart kitchens and four brands across cities like Chennai, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Delhi, Mumbai, and Pune. The startup is now focussing on expanding its presence across the country.

These festival finds around the Chattanooga area include giant pumpkins, fair foods and Christmas decor

It’s fall, y’all, but in Lebanon, Tennessee, they’re thinking about Christmas — and making no apologies for the nod toward the next season.

“I once read somewhere that 70-80% [of consumers] start thinking about and purchasing their first items for Christmas in the month of September,” said Kristi Rowan, president of Midsouth Media Group, which produces Mistletoe Merchants, scheduled Friday through Sunday in Wilson County’s Farm Bureau Expo Center about 30 miles east of Nashville.

It’s one of five festivals happening or continuing in the tri-state area this weekend. A sixth, the DeKalb County VFW Agricultural Fair in Fort Payne, Alabama, starts Monday with a nightly carnival and other entertainment leading up to an all-day celebration on Oct. 3.

Other day-trip options include a jaunt to Marietta for a flavorful alternative to the North Georgia State Fair, happening the next two weekends, or to Pigeon Forge for the opening of the six-week Harvest Festival and Great Pumpkin LumiNights at Dollywood.

Closer to home, the Pumpkin Palooza family festival will take place Saturday at Greenway Park & Pavilion in Cleveland, Tennessee.

Rowan said Mistletoe Merchants is one of six spring and holiday markets her company produces in Tennessee and Mississippi.

“Last year we had about 5,000 shoppers, doubling from the previous year of 2,500,” Rowan said of the market, now in its fifth year in the Nashville area. “This event is really catching on and will soon be like our seasoned shows with 15,000 shoppers.”

Her 20-year-old Memphis show typically draws crowds of that size, she said, but it has been canceled entirely this year due to coronavirus concerns. For the Nashville event, several popular mix-and-mingle activities have been dropped, including Cupcakes & Cocktails, Muffins & Mimosas, Sangria Sunday and Santa appearances. However, general-admission shopping among the more than 100 vendors will take place as scheduled.

“This is a shopper’s chance to shop some of these unique businesses that you would not normally see, all while supporting small businesses and our economy,” Rowan said.

Likewise, the North Georgia State Fair has scaled back this year, canceling the midway and blue-ribbon competitions and revamping as Taste of the Fair.

Visitors will drive through to view the menus of at least 15 food vendors, then park for in-car or walk-up service. In-car service will provide a limited menu and an attendant who will take and deliver orders. Walk-up service will provide a full vendor menu, and visitors will leave their cars to order directly from the vendors. Masks are required for anyone choosing walk-up service.

At Dollywood, the seasonal programming includes more than 800 concerts by Southern gospel and bluegrass artists over the next six weeks, along with demonstrations by resident crafters and visiting artists, set amid the autumnal beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains. New for 2020 are pumpkins weighing up to 1,000 pounds each, great for using as photo backdrops or just for marveling at their colossal size. As the sun sets, the theme park transforms into a whimsical display of
