9. Aeroccino Milk Frother

Dieting or not, this is perhaps our favorite kitchen appliance. In a minute, it whips up extraordinary cappuccino or latte foam.

  • Just select which type of foam you want (cappuccino is frothier), add cold fat-free milk and push the button. You’ve got a portion of delicious, low-calorie foam to top coffee or diet hot chocolate.
  • We use the latte setting to create frothy hot milk, which we love with a bit of artificial sweetener.
  • Great for hot or cold drinks; even with tea!

Have low-calorie milk froth whenever you want it. Try the Nespresso Aeroccino with tea, too.

10. IngenuiTea

Enjoy the finest loose-leaf teas with ease. Tea has no calories, and if you drink the finest, you’ll find that no milk or sweetener are required.

  • The IngenuiTea makes brewing loose tea a breeze. Add tea and water, let it brew; then set the unit atop a cup or mug.
  • There’s a mesh filter on the bottom of this easy-to-use plastic teapot. When you set the pot atop any cup or mug, a valve opens, propped open by the rim of the cup, and the brewed tea flows in.
  • The leaves stay above, atop the filter. The valve closes the moment you lift the pot off the rim, and there is zero dripping.
  • It’s easy to clean, and there’s no more trying to get loose tea out of those tea balls! Read our full review of Ingenuitea.

Put loose tea and hot water to brew, then place on top of a cup. The tea filters in, the leaves stay inside if you use the IngenuiTea.
