Especially to those that are looking for a fast warmer (hence, its name) because this little device here is able to heat up to 5 ounces of milk in as little as 4 minutes. An instruction guide as follows is included as well to make it easy for you to calculate the correct heat-up time.
It's not just speed that the Fast is good at. Thanks to its water steamer technology, is is able to warm milk evenly and keep it at the right temperature for when you need it.
This is doable because it uses what's like a flowing warm water bath, whereby there is constant circulation of water and milk continuously so that milk can be gently thawed and warmed up.
Because of this, hot spots (like that of microwaves) are prevented.
As milk or baby food is warmed gently, it is able to ensure that the internal temperature is always safe for your baby.
And yes, this bottle warmer features a handy defrost setting. Which is why it is a favourite especially among breastfeeding mothers because they do not have to wait for their frozen breast milk to thaw first before they can heat it up.
Just select the defrost setting and the Fast will start defrosting your frozen milk / baby food before heating them up.
Speaking of its operation, the warmer is fast and easy to operate - just plug in and flip the on/off switch on the back of the unit.
You will see a neon light comes on, which means the unit is on and working.
To warm, just add water and put your bottle in before turning the dial. A light will blink to indicate that the contents are properly warmed to a safe temperature, though to be sure, we recommend to always test the internal temperature before giving it to your baby.
Though this isn't that much of an issue anyway to start with, given that the Fast has an opening diameter of 78mm so it is able to fit most bottles (and food jars) even if they are not from the same brand.
With a small and compact design, we like how the Philips AVENT Fast Baby Bottle Warmer is not bulky like other bottle warmers so it doesn't take up much counter space. If speed is your first priority, then we think you will like this one very much.
