Can you microwave milk to make lattes?

Someone contacted me today and asked if you can microwave milk to make lattes. My unequivocal answer is "yes".

At the risk of being lambasted by purists who insist you have to steam the milk using the steamer wand on your espresso machine, some time ago now I abandoned that for the more convenient method of preparing the milk for my lattes and flat whites by heating the milk in the microwave and then whisking it with an Aerolatte battery-powered milk whisk. Believe me, I get the same outcome that I used to get using the steamer wand, without the cleanup hassle. The Aerolatte just needs a quick rinse under the tap when done. For more specifics, read my article on steaming your milk with the steam wand or alternatively using an Aerolatte whisk.
