More Information about Electric Butter Churns

A butter churn is a simple device that makes it easy to convert the cream you got from the milk into butter. While using the device, the cream will be churned into a state where the butter and buttermilk are separated. This allows you to get the butter that we use today.


While the butter churn has been around since 600 BC or earlier, modern butter churns have made some improvements. Now it is possible to use an electric butter churn to get the work done rather than relying on doing it all by hand.


How Does the Butter Churn Work?


There is actually science behind the butter churn and how it works. While the butter churn is working, the cream will be stirred continuously at a high speed. This helps to break down the fat molecules and clumps them all in one place together.


At the same time, this process can create air bubbles that will take the liquid and generates foam as one of the substances separates out from the other. This results in buttermilk, which will remain a liquid, and the butter, which is the solid clumped together. To get the cream that you need to create butter, you can use a milk separator.


Which Type of Milk Works for This?


Butter is made out of cow’s milk traditionally. This is often because cow’s milk is more cost effective to do this. It does take a good deal of effort to collect cream out of goat’s milk because the globules are quite a bit smaller. Getting a thick layer of cream to the surface of the goat milk can take a long time.


Technically, you can use goat milk to make butter, but it takes a lot longer and you will need more goats’ milk to make it happen. Cow’s milk is more efficient and can get you the butter you would like faster.


What Temperature Works Best for Churning Butter?


If you are using an electric butter churn, the ideal temperature to work with is between 13 to 15 degrees C  (55 - 59 degrees F). Room temperature can work as well if you are not able to change it. This means that it may take a bit longer to get the butter made if you have cold cream from the fridge to start.


How Does the Electric Butter Churn Make it Easier?


An electrical butter churn will make this process easier. You can just turn it on and let the churn do all the work for you. Compared to some of the requirements in the past where you had to churn the butter by hand, this may speed up the process and can give you some tasty butter in no time.


When you are ready to make your own butter, then an electric butter churn is one of the best ways to make this happen. Once you have separated the cream from the milk with a cream separator, you are ready to use the electric butter churn to turn that cream into your very own butter.
