Rated 1 out of 5 by Ryan Awkward, poor performance
The buttons are awkward to press and it's really unclear how to get it started - lots of 'press this button multiple times, then hold this one down for three seconds' - it's just so unintuitive. Progress of heating is unclear (it just flashes for a bit - is it heating, waiting?). Performance is very poor - setting the start temperature and quantity does NOT result in warm milk - the bottle is hot, the milk is cold.

Rated 1 out of 5 by NathanOfYork Poor warming up small amounts
I bought this bottle warmer to warm Expressed Breast Milk (EBM) for my daughter who was born premature. My daughter was 10 weeks early and left hospital after 7 weeks weighing only 4lbs. The amount of milk that she requires for her feed the moment is only 50ml and 15ml with her medicine.
Each time I have used the warmer (carefully following the instructions) the milk is not warm enough. I end up having to put it through the cycle again to get it up to the correct temperature. Sometimes this comes too warm so I have to the bottle under a cold tap to cool it down.
Obviously at the moment I am only using the unit to warm though small amounts of EBM but surely it should still be suitable?
Have tried both the refrigerated and frozen settings all with similar outcomes (frozen EBM comes out at about 70c).
Seriously considering returning this to the store that I purchased it from.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Amira I used it for one year and more !! Perfect Product I can't say more !:)
I used this Product since I returned to work when my son was 2 month, it's perfect for heating the breast milk regardless it's freezed or kept in frigde, it's the best gift I've got !
and when I started to wean, i used it to heat the pureed food that I keep in Freezer, it's a life saver.. I am still keeping it till now for any futuer babies I may have :))

great product, warms milk quickly though buttons need to be pressed hard to work and when you have a wriggling newborn in one arm too its a little tricky!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Hayley Good product but requires improvement although still better than others on the market
I ordered this product because I liked the safety cut off feature i.e. when it reaches its temp and length of time it cuts out ensuring product does not get burnt as long as water inside unlike many other bottle warmers and also ensures babys milk is not over heated killing off all the nutrients in the milk (which happens numerous times when you use water from the kettle in a jug method). My only disappointment was the buttons were so stiff the force required to push to select mode turned my thumb red. Philips service team were great they sent replacement but replacement was also the same... yet i have a friend who has the same product and i have used hers and hers is fine so could just of been a faulty batch.

Rated 3 out of 5 by iMisBra The product has great features but easily breaks.
This product really helps when needing to consistently warm up the bottle up for your baby.
Unfortunately, the unit has failed on me twice, the first time the bottom started to 'melt' and the second one we bought, after 2-3 months of use and de-scaling every fortnight, you switch the unit on and after 5 seconds or so it 'cuts out', phoned up Philips Avent and they told me to just de-scale it... as if I've not already tried that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Walton Great product shame about design.
This product is simple to use and warms up bottles. My only problem with this product is the design. It is too bulky when you have a baby you need to be able to use products with one hand. The buttons on this product you have to push fairly hard and as it is so wide you have to hold the bottle warmer in one hand and push buttons with other. Not the best when you have a small baby. I have had to put it by a wall so when I push the buttons the wall is my second hand! It wouldn't take make much to make this an excellent product either by it being a touch screen or slim down the product or some type of grip on the bottom. However apart from this the performance is excellent.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Monkeymonkey Does not fit anticholic bottles
This product DOES NOT fit the philips avent anticholic bottles in any size greater than 125ml despite being advertised as such: 'It fits Philips AVENT Bottles, Magic Cups and baby food jars'
It will only fit regular bottles.
The product itself is good at what it does and is effective but very disppointed it doesn't fit ALL philips avent bottles as advertised.
