How it works

Baby warmers can definitely help you with this and today we are reviewing a special kind of bottle warmer produced by Tommee Tippee and intended for traveling purposes and for families on the go. It is a bottle warmer that can be used for bottle warming, preparation of baby formula on the go, and warming of jars with baby food. Read the review and check why parents love this Tommee Tippee portable warmer.

Who is it for?

Who is it for?

The product is great for warming baby meals when you are going on a short walk in the park or long journeys. It is an awesome product that can be used not only by breastfeeding mothers who after pumping the milk can put it in a bottle and get the bottle warm but also for mothers who are bottle feeding their babies. If you belong to the second group of mums, now you can make the baby formula fresh for your baby because you can put the water needed for the formula in the flask and when the kiddo gets hungry you can prepare the milk right on the spot. When the baby grows up a little and he/she is ready for trying out different baby foods still you can use this bottle warmer as you can put jars of baby food in the beaker and warm them. It is a product that has been designed to be used for newborns (0+) and there is no limit to age, regarding the use. As it is very affordable it can be just right for families who are budget-savvies or the ones with a tight budget but at the same time would like to purchase a bottle warmer.
Product Design

Product Design

The product consists of a few parts. The two “bigger” parts are a flask that is insulated and can be closed by a cap/lid that is closed and opened by screwing and this part is a pourer as well. The cap is closed tightly because there is a silicone seal that keeps the lid tight and does not allow leakage and spills when on. The cap also consists of the open and close button. The second major part is the beaker where you actually put the boiled water that heats the bottles or jars with baby food. The bottle warmer is made of plastic inside and stainless steel outside. It has a sleek and modern design. It is a real gender-neutral product with its silver color which is actually the only available color offered for this model of bottle warmer. The smart design that is stylish and functional at the same time allows you to use this product when you are for example in a restaurant with your baby or having a picnic in the park and there is no access to power. The bottle warmer works on the principle of hot water and does not use electricity or batteries and in this context this product is eco-friendly.

One of the things that can make the product nicer and more convenient for use is if the cap had been able to fit in the standard car cup holders as if you are in a car and you want to use the warmer you will have to hold it or stop the vehicle and have a break for feeding time. Also, lots of customers would like to see a cover on the beaker.
Ease of use

Ease of use

One of the great things for this bottle warmer is that it can keep the water hot for many hours. Reviewers who have tested this product claim that the water is still hot even after 8 hours. You are definitely not going to leave the water for so many hours but still, it is a good thing to know that is functional for so many hours especially if you are planning to go on a long trip. It is very convenient because it is with a compact design and you can actually hold this within your hand, but also because there is no need of electricity or heating as this is very important when you are outside or in the car during rides. This means that the car rides in the part of the baby feeding can be stress-free with this Travel Bottle Warmer.

All you need is just a thermal flask and the beaker for warm meals for your baby regardless of where you are. It is extremely easy for use as you just have to pour water that is boiled previously in the flask and make sure you screw the lid tightly and put the flask in the beaker. Then when you want to warm the bottle you just press the button on the cap for opening and pour the water from the flask into the beaker and before that put the bottle in the beaker for warming. The bottle and/or the food jar for the baby should be put first in the beaker and then you should pour the water because you want to avoid spills that are likely to happen if you submerge the bottle in a beaker, which is full of water. Once the meal is warmed up to the temperature that you desire, you should remove it as if you just leave the bottle or the jar in the beaker it will continue to get warmer and it will increase the temperature, which may result in overheating and this is not good. According to the customers, the warmer get the bottle warm for a very short time.
Safety

Safety

The Tommee Tippee warmer is a product that is made of materials that are child-friendly and all the materials used are BPA free. So when we discuss the safety of this product mainly we mean the things that you should be careful about regarding the use of the product. One example of what you should be careful when you are warming the bottle is that the water should not be over the bottle’s neck.

Another thing that is important to mention and it does include safety, is that the lid or the beaker does not have a cover so you have to be extra careful when you fill the water in the beaker as the water has just been boiled so it is very hot. In order to avoid this type of accidents, it is advisable whenever you put hot water into the beaker to put it on a flat and smooth surface. Again you should be careful with the water when you take the bottle out of the beaker, because of the temperature of the water. The product must not be used in microwaves or even ovens for pre-heating and this is performed only with the previously boiled water that is put inside the flask and then the beaker. When you remove the baby bottle or the jar from the beaker you should always check the temperature of the milk or food before you give it to the baby as this warmer does not have an indicator that shows the temperature that has been reached.
Care and Maintenance

Care and Maintenance

One thing that parents should be aware of the maintenance of this product is that the flask is not to be used in a dishwasher so it can only be hand-washed. As you put only water in it, it should not be a big deal and it is advisable to clean the flask periodically. Hard water can be a bit problematic and so when you wash it is safe to wash it with bicarbonate of soda or even mild washing liquid but again it is very important to rinse the inside of the flask very carefully and thoroughly. When we talk about the care and maintenance of the beaker it is safe to be put for washing in a dishwasher but it can be washed and rinsed with warm water. The flask is intended to be used with water only so you are not supposed to put other types of drinks inside it, especially carbonated drinks and milk or baby food directly in the flask because this can cause bacterial growth and we are sure you do not want that.

Value

This is a bottle warmer with a great price and if compared to the standard bottle warmers which are at least 50 dollars the price of it is more than affordable. This is a product that has no limited period of use and it does not consume any power and there is no need of batteries so the single price that you will pay for this product would be the only cost. When you think about the value of the product consider that it can be used almost only daily basis and every time when you go out or even if you are at home if you have this warmer there is no need to buy an additional one for home. It is an excellent product for the price and it is definitely worth the cost. It would be a great gift for baby showers and we are sure that the parents will like this gift. For those who have to purchase it by themselves, it is a great option as compared to other bottle warmers this one, regarding the price is a bargain.

Bottom line

This bottle warmer is a great product for families who enjoy traveling or are constantly on the go because of its practical and smart design. It is a stainless flask and it is thermos-like but works as a bottle warmer that does not use any power to operate, which is great for outdoor activities and trips. It is a compact warmer and that is why it is easy to put it in a diaper bag together with all the other necessities for the baby. Initially designed for the bottles of Closer to nature produced by Tommee Tippee it can also fit many other bottles that range in sizes, and it is also suitable to use it for jars of baby food. The product is used by breastfeeding mothers, but if you are bottle feeding you can put the water in the flask and make the formula on the go. It is very easy to use and easy for maintenance. On top of this, the price is great and affordable for almost anyone’s budget.
