Unlike many models that are multifunctional nowadays, this one here does one and one thing only - heat bottles up.
Well, strictly speaking, it does have another 'Constant Temperature Mode' as well besides heating, which is to keep milk warm for a long time if your baby cannot finish in one go.
It does this by adopting the method of water bathing.
You set your desired temperature (within a range of 95-185℉) and milk will then be warmed up in that constant temperature, which restores the temperature of breastfeeding.
You see, warming at 99℉ is recommended as it prevents nutrient loss. To keep the freshness and nutrition of breast milk, it is recommended that the heating time should not exceed 30 minutes.
Also, do note that if you use this mode to warm up milk, it will take about 10-25 minutes for one cycle to complete. And this brings us to our next point.
This is thanks to its 500w power, which to give you a better perspective, is that it is able to heat up 4oz milk from 39℉ to 98℉ in just 2 minutes.
So if you are to warm up refrigerated milk only, we recommend using the heating mode instead of constant temperature mode as it is much faster this way.
Once the heating cycle is complete, the machine will shut off automatically to ensure safety. Other safety precaution includes anti-dry heating and overheating protection, both of which will shut off immediately if too little water is added or if is heated for too long.
In terms of operation, everything is controllable via a LED display with digital control.
Just add water, place your bottle into the holder, press the on/off button, choose your heating mode adjust time and temperature (by pressing the decrease/increase button) and that's it.
Another thing we like about the OMORC Baby Bottle Warmer is that despite its size, it actually fits a lot of bottles (of different types) from different brands. As long as the widest diameter of your bottle does not exceed 2.95 inch, it will be able to fit in.
Of course, that is if your bottle is not in any special shape. This means angled-neck bottles will not be able to fit, which is a shame actually because they are one of the best bottles for reflux and are a staple in many households.
One thing to note though, is that you should ALWAYS place your bottle into the bottle holder provided when you heat milk up.
This is because the basket helps protect your bottle (the bottom of it) from being deformed by the heating plate when it heats up.
If counter space is an issue for you, then we highly recommend the OMORC Baby Bottle Warmer because it is one of the most compact baby bottle warmers you can find in the market (other similar options you can check out is this and this).
