Shoppers say this Asda milk frother is an £85 cheaper dupe for Hotel Chocolat’s Velvetiser

It’s safe to say that over the past year we’ve been spending a lot more time in our kitchens, which is why foodie-based trends have captivated us in a way like never before.

Thanks to Instagram and TikTok, we’ve been kept busy with baking banana bread, whipping up baked oats and baked feta pasta and trying out different ingredients in our four-way tortilla wraps

But it’s not just foodie trends TikTok is sending us wild for, but drinks trends, too. It’s why sales of Hotel Chocolat’s Velvetiser have soared, with the chic hot chocolate machine creating barista-grade hot chocolate using chocolate flakes and milk, with no need to faff over the stove.

However, as useful and stylish as the gadget is, at £99.95, it’s at a price point that may seem a little steep for a lot of us, which is why shoppers have been going wild for a super affordable dupe. At just £16, the George at Asda Black Milk Frother is almost £85 cheaper than the Hotel Chocolat Velvetiser, with an additional £4 slashed off its original £20 price tag in the rollover.

The milk frother is already receiving plenty of five-star reviews from happy customers, with one commenting: ‘Bought this after my other expensive one died. Such a good price also love the metal instead of plastic jug. Easy to keep clean. Looks neat and tidy in the kitchen. Great for making lattes, hot chocolate or cold strawberry milk.’

Unfortunately, the George at Asda Milk Frother is currently sold out online, but the good news is it’s being restocked in the next week or so – keep an eye out on the Asda website – and is available in stores, too.
