Title: Milk frothing device

Abstract: The present invention relates to a milk frothing device with a steam pipe that extends through a base member and has at its end a nozzle, and with a container that can be placed underneath the nozzle. The base member along with the steam pipe and the nozzle is vertically displaceable within a longitudinal guide of a housing of the device. This permits immersing the nozzle into the container and frothing the milk disposed therein without needing the hand of a user to hold the container. This arrangement prevents scalds and improves ease of handling.
