    Comments about Electric Bottle Warmer:

    Very disappointed in this product. We have twin infants, and needed help warming two bottles quickly. It leaks from the bottom, leaving a pool of milky water on my kitchen counter. It also builds up a slimy white goo at the bottom. It has to be cleaned about every 4 uses, which is often for us. Almost more trouble than it's worth. Also, the timer stopped working on us after one week. After about a minute and a half it times out to 0, and stops and timer rings. The bottle is still cold! We're back to using a bowl of hot water.

    Serves the purpose

    Comments about Electric Bottle Warmer:

    The first one was a gift. Used it for a year to warm up milk and formula. It stopped working properly after I cleaned it well a year after. Maybe some water got under the sticker with controll buttons. So bought another one since I am used to it.

    Cons: no signal if there is no water left. Just turns itself off sooner than your setting. It was annoying at night or when the baby was super hungry and demanded food right away.

    It should cost less. But so do many baby items.

    Other than that, does the job.

      Comments about Electric Bottle Warmer:

      Although I don't have anything to compare it to, I have been so satisfied with this warmer, I bought a second one for upstairs.

      Regarding comments on MOLD, no problems whatsoever on either of mine. When not in use, I leave the top open and once a day I pour out any standing water in the main compartment. Since I am heating up every few hours I go through the water each day and the ability to fill once for multiple uses is GREAT! Reliable heating and easy to use.

      I originally didn't like that I had to reach down into steam bath to get the bottle out and was using a wash cloth, but then figured out that there is a removable bottom that lets you adapt it to smaller and larger bottles. I still use the wash cloth since its hot and I wipe off the bottle, but can easily get the smaller bottles out now.

      Con is that when you unplug it and plug it back in you have to reset the timer, but otherwise it has been more than what I expected.

        Comments about Electric Bottle Warmer:

        Let me start by saying I NEVER would have thought I needed this item. I was convinced my daughter would be breastfed only. She had different plans though and decided to wean herself at just 7 weeks. I continued to pump and she has been getting bottles of breast milk, but we were getting tired of having to run hot water over the bottles for 5+ minutes, trying to heat up the milk, as breast milk cannot be microwaved. AFter reading several other reviews, we finally settled on the Dr. Brown's version, and I am SO happy we did. It has a convenient digital display that saves the last used time setting, and a removable basket that you can flip around to make use of for smaller bottles of even baby food jars. You can even sterilize small items, nipples, tethers, etc. The water reservoir is easy to install and lasts us (at this point) at least 2 days. We haven't had any problems so far with inconsistent heating, as some of the reviews on other warmers have mentioned. For a 4-oz refrigerated bottle, it does take a 4 minute cycle, plus 60 seconds to cool off. But it is MUCH better than having to stand at the sink and run water over it! Now I can change the little one's diaper and do other things with her before the bottle is ready. It is a great time saver!

        We use the Dr. Brown's bottles, which fit perfectly in the warmer, but it has a fairly generous width in the basket, that I am sure would be able to accommodate a variety of different bottles.

        We like ours so much, we are purchasing a second for my mom's house for when I go back to work.

          I was a little hesitant to purchase this bottle warmer due to some of the reviews but it had the best rating of all bottle warmers. I am very happy with my purchase. The bottle warmer is very easy to use, does a great job and is easy to clean. I have used the 4 oz Dr. Brown bottles and 8 oz wide neck Dr. Brown bottles with no problems. I also use it to sterlize pacifiers. While there are several reviews mentioning leaking into the warmer, I have not had that problem. I unscrew the bottle half a turn as the instructions tell you to do and have had no leaking. The warmer is also very easy to move around and travel with. I would absolutely recommend this product to other parents.

              I used our Dr. Brown's bottle warmer for about 12 uses and then it broke. Overall I haven't loved any of the Dr. Brown's products - the bottles tend to leak quite a bit as well. I was very unhappy with this purchase.

                We have used this product with breastmilk and then whole milk bottles. It does a good job of heating the milk. It is not easy to clean and milk does sometimes leak from the bottles after they have bene heated.

                At first I this seemed to be a good buy. I could feel comfortable about leaving breastmilk in the refigerator for my husband to warm up to feed the baby. Then after only a few uses, doing everything the same, milk began to leak out of the Dr. Brown's Wide Mouth bottles we use. We would lose about an ounce or more when this happened. It was not only annoying, but we lost so much milk. It was also very difficult to clean the reservoir that would fill up with milk. When we heated up bottles in smelt like spoiled milk becuase I couldn't get it all the way clean. Have discontinued use and have gone back to heating water and using a water bath to heat the bottles while I search for another one.

                  Comments about Electric Bottle Warmer:

                  We had high hopes and at first loved this product. No need to refill each time and once you have the time set you just hit the button for easy, even heating. We also used it to quickly sterilize pacifiers.
                  We had problems with leaking almost instantly. The blue water reservoir would sometimes pop out from the top and hang loosely but we'd just push it back in. The water would leak from the area where the blue reservoir rests in the warmer. I noticed that it did this most when it was getting low (but not always) so I tried to keep it full and tried to overlook that flaw.
                  I cleaned this machine exactly as instructed in the book but within a few months of use noticed a build up of black at the bottom. The blue reservoir would also get a grime in it that was VERY difficult to get to. I would basically rinse and rinse and shake and try to get that out. I eventually began cleaning it more often and using more vinegar then suggested but to no avail. After about 8 months of use the product began to smell despite my frequent cleanings. It was becoming more of a pain to keep the machine clean.
                  We eventually pitched it and started using a brita filter on the counter (with room temp water) that didn't need heated when mixed with formula. I will do the same with future kids and avoid any need for heating bottles.

                        WE LOVE the Dr. Brown's Bottle Warmer! Heats the bottles consistantly every time, and the water reservoir is very convenient.

                        We initially purchased at different bottle warmer at my brother's recommendation, but it was inconsistent and created more work than boiling water.

                        I would recommend this Dr. Brown's Bottle Warmer to anyone.

                            I used this to warm bottles/jars in the hotel room while on vacation. I owned a previoud bottle warmer that was so much hassle that I gave it away. This bottle/jar warmer on the other hand is great. You don't have to fill with water each time which makes it super convenient. I actually had tp purchase a bottle while on vacation and used this warmer to sterilize the bottle and nipple before giving it to my baby. Since it prooved to have multiple uses, I feel like I got a lot of bang for my buck.

                            My won't be on formula much longer. so I only wish I'd found this sooner.

                            I would suggest however, to test out the warm up times suggested to see what time will get the bottles/jars to the temperatures that you/your baby prefer.

                              After spending hours of time and gallons of water warming bottles by holding them under running water (or placing them in a pot of hot water for long periods of time), I bought this product. It is absolutely fantastic. Including the 60-second cool down period, my 4-ounce bottles are warmed in about 5 minutes. Despite what some other reviews state, I have not had any problems cleaning the warmer. (Just be sure to half-twist the bottles open before warming as the instructions indicate, and you won't have to worry about and milk/formula getting into the warmer.)
