What People Had To Say
When looking at what people had to say about the Elfinbaby Baby Bottle Warmer and Bottle Sterilizer, we are very happy to report the vast majority of consumers who purchased this bottle warmer had great things to say about it.
Parents liked that it was incredibly easy to use – all you have to do is plug the device into an outlet, put water in the reservoir and turn the dial to whatever setting you wish to use (with a bottle in it of course). They went on to say that they were impressed that they could heat up two bottles at once, which saved quite a bit of time, especially when baby is particularly hungry.
When heating the bottle, parents like how quickly the device is able to bring the milk or baby food to the desired temperature. They reported that they also can leave the device on the lowest setting and keep any unfinished milk warm in the device so it is ready for baby’s next meal.
Customers also liked having the peace of mind in knowing when using the sterilizer mode, it can reach a temperature that will kill bacteria that could make baby sick.
Although many people had great things to say about this bottle warmer, there were some people who were less than impressed. People who were not happy that there wasn’t a digital read out of the temperature, or a way to see exactly what temperature the unit was at. Because of this, several people commented the milk was too hot.
Others reported the heat doesn’t transfer throughout the bottle, so you have to pause the heating process, shake the warm (almost hot) bottle in order to get the milk warm throughout.
Several customers were disappointed that their devices took a really long time to heat up any amount of milk – they were so disappointed they returned the product. Some customers did some digging and found that this product is offered from a variety of “brands” with different brand names put on the front.
They also went on to say they felt that this product was “garbage” and were douped because they received a product that didn’t even work with an American outlet. They went on to say the instruction manual was translated from another language because there were severe grammatical errors and it wasn’t easy to understand at all.
Understandably, when you want to feed your baby, you want to do it as quickly as you can so your baby is screaming for too long. The Elfinbaby Baby Bottle Warmer and Bottle Sterilizer is a 3-in-1 device that can warm up two bottles at once for your little one, but it can also sterilize them so your baby doesn’t get sick.
We like this product because it can do three things (warm milk, heat up food, and sterilize). We also appreciate the water reservoir is made from ceramic and not metal, which means you don’t have to worry about it becoming rusted if you leave water in the reservoir.
We are a little concerned by the accusations against this product of it being shopped around by various brands. With that said, those claims were made only by a very few people and it may not even be true.
In our opinion, if you’re looking for a cute bottle warmer that is easy to use and isn’t going to cost a lot of money, then this is a good option.
