While I 100% agree those frothers cannot make real micro-foamed milk and are
not good candidates for any kind of latte art work, if satisfied with
Aeropress for "espresso" (which it cannot make) then likely will be
satisfied with milk frother. Neither are the correct/right/best tools for
making cappuccinos or lattes.

you can get foamy milk with one of those brother thingies, but there is no
chance to get something even close to microfoam needed for latte art.  This
needs steam.  Properly steamed milk also tastes different and gets a lot
sweeter (something about how the fats spread the lactose onto your tongue)

I used to get pretty good microfoam with a cheap Krups machine I had at my
office (though the espresso was terrible).  Had to take the stupid easy
frothing gadget off first.

steamed - still cold, which is a bit of a shock the first time.
