I have been a little lazy on posting this week; not because I don’t have plenty to update you on, but rather because I’ve been traveling time zones for work. The good news is that I am back and relishing in sleeping in my own bed and being amongst my favorite people and I have a new product to tout. Let me first offer a disclaimer(s): 1) I did not make this product and 2) I am not receiving any compensation for this endorsement. With that aside, let’s discuss the glories of a foamer/frother wand.
Your first thoughts on what a foamer wand might be conjuring up images of princesses or some new handy dandy cleaning too, but alas neither is correct. In fact a foamer wand is an ingenious kitchen tool for whipping your milk/creamer into a frenzy so you can make the perfect cappucino, etc. I first heard of a foamer wand a few months ago (yes- I am way behind the curve for those of you already in the know!) and immediately began scouring the internet for the best price. I found this Ikea one that was only $2.50 through Amazon.
The reasons I didn’t purchase immediately was that it had terrible reviews about the motor lifespan and the shipping cost was astronomical. The flip side was that now I was fixated on owning a foamer wand and hence the search ensued, landing me at one of my favorite places: Sur La Table. This cooking store always has awesome deals, a friendly staff, and is way more approachable than Williams and Sonoma (not to say I don’t adore W & S, too).
In their Christmas display in the front of the store, do you know what they had on display? Yep. A Bodum foamer wand! For only $12.95. Vini, vidi, vici. In other words, sold!
I was anxious to use it and can attest that I had an awesome cafe au lait this morning courtesy of this wand. It took all of 40 seconds to whip my creamer into a slurry of foamy goodness.
Making me feel even more satisfied with my purchsae was Sur la Table’s guarantee. When I mentioned the reviews I read about these wand’s short motor life, the sales lady informed me that if my wand should stop functioning just bring it in and they would either give me a refund or a new wand. That’s a deal I can handle. Three cheers to a good cup of joe and merry (early) Christmas to me!
