The Motta thermometer designed in Italy
A dual dial milk thermometer fit for use even by the most demanding barista
The dial face does not steam up and we have found the temperature readings to be both accurate and consistent, we no longer sell economy thermometers as we found those to be unreliable and prone to breakage.
Motta are one of the most respected coffee related manufacturers in the world and their great reputation is further enhanced by this product.
At 125mm in length and with it's 40mm face, it is sized to work very well with our 1 litre milk frothing jugs as well as the 0.6 litre jugs, this is possible as the clip slides up and down the shaft of the thermometer as required.
Simply place this in your jug whilst steaming the milk and then begin to turn your steam off at around the 130 mark.
By the time you have done that the milk is approaching 140 and you will know that you have not overcooked your milk.
A great if not essential tool, particularly useful for beginners, staff in shops and anyone who wants something to let them know they are not scorching their milk, even now, we use them every day when making our drinks.
