MOTTA EUROPA Milk Jug / Pitcher - 350mL - STAINLESS STEEL - 901/35

Motta 350ml milk frothing pitcher constructed of heavy gauge, 18/10 304 stainless steel, with a highly polished finish. Motta are by far the very best steaming jugs/pitchers we sell. Includes tapered pouring spout for excellent control over milk delivery and presentation.   350ml size is ideally suited to preparation of one milk based espresso drink such as caffe latte, cappuccino, flat white, etc. 

Motta Italian Quality

Motta stainless steel milk frothing jugs/pitchers are considered to be the best available. Motta are a specialist manuacturer of a wide variety of stainless steel products. In Italy Motta, the manufacturer of these beautiful steaming pitchers, is considered to be the go-to manufacturer for high quality stainless products for the catering industries.

How to use

Fill the jug approximately half way or slightly less with good quality cold milk.   Milk straight from the fridge is ideal.   Insert the steam wand below the surface of the milk and open the steam tap. Gently lower the pitcher until you start to 'foam' the milk by injecting volume into the milk.   After a few seconds (how long will depend on how much steam your machine delivers) the volume of milk will increase.   Before the milk reaches the top of the jug, raise the pitcher to immerse the steam wand into the milk.   Position the pitcher so that the flow of steam creates a mixing action.   Heat to your desired temperature, then shut off the steam before removing the pitcher.   Now you are ready to create your caffe latte, cappuccino, flat white, etc.

Buying guide

When selecting a jug for frothing milk there are a few things to keep in mind.

  1. Select the right volume for the job - trying to foam milk for one cup of coffee in a 1 litre pitcher just will not provide good results.   As a rule you typically want the pitcher approximately half full before steaming the milk, this equates to about 300ml of volume size per cup in small pitchers(allowing some room so that the milk does not overflow) or 250ml in larger pitchers.
  2. Find a pitcher with a good spout - a good spout allows you to pour the milk in a nice narrow accurate stream and create a good consistent texture in the finished drink. Pitchers with a lip or no spout make it difficult to control the flow of milk often resulting in nasty big bubbles in the finished product.   Look at what the professionals use, go with a nice narrow spout.
  3. Stainless steel - experienced baristas and home baristas can dispense with using a thermometer and will steam the milk by 'feeling' the temperature through the jug. A pitcher constructed from glass, plastic, or ceramic makes it difficult to determine the milk temperature by feel, often this will leading to 'scalded' milk that is flat and lifeless. Stainless steel is one of the best materials for a milk jug as it conducts heat from the liquid to the exterior almost instantly.

Quicktip

Keep your milk pitcher nice and cold otherwise it will preheat your cold milk, so its best not to leave the pitcher on top of your espresso machine or anywhere hot.   Some people even leave their pitchers in the fridge/freezer and claim they get better results.  Try it and see how you go.   Enjoy!

    best jug for latte art

    Posted by ian on 25th Nov 2013

    I have a 500ml Motta Europa jug, it is the best jug ever, not to mention it's beautiful in shape, high quality stainless steel that shines and not easy to have water mark if you dry wipe it after use, after you use it for a while, you'll start to appreciate it's clever shape (wider bottom narrower top) that it slows down your milk foam in result help your pouring more in control, especially it's long mouth, you don't need to tilt your espresso cup anymore, the mouth is long enough to reach to the serface of your espresso, meaning that the pattern will start to form with out you tilting cup. I bought another 350ml Europa just to make single flat white or latte, you get to save lots of milk steam with a smaller jug, with just enough milk, other small jugs tends to spill milk due to the steam too powerful that spins milk out, but not with Europa, again its shape helps to maintain the milk inside the jug. I highly recommend this 350ml jug, it's a perfect pouring jug, even if you steam your milk with large jug, you can make it your "pouring jug", it's so easy to control compare it's larger version, and it's right amount, enough for one latte or flat white, no more waste of milk. It's the only jug that I will be using from now on!!
