Boon Orb Bottle Warmer Review
Generally speaking, babies prefer to drink warm milk as opposed to cold milk.
Most formulas these days are made up to use cold water so that they are easier to prepare for busy parents.
Consequently, parents need to have a way of warming it up, ideally to match the temperature that breast milk would be.
With the fast tempo of life and multitasking on a day-to-day basis, it is crucial for them to have fast and efficient ways to deal with their baby's needs.
This Boon Orb Bottle Warmer review will discuss the features, pros, and cons of this unit to help you decide whether it could make your life easier.
Why Use a Bottle Warmer
Overall, having a bottle warmer in your household can be a great advantage.
It is safer and faster than other bottle heating methods.
Although they are not essential, we find them extremely practical, especially for the modern and busy parent.
You can preserve a wide variety of nutrients in the baby’s food and milk by using a bottle warmer, and at all costs should avoid using the microwave for safety reasons.
Never again will you have to run the bottle under the cold tap to cool it back down!
Having said that, however, always double-check that the food or milk is at an appropriate temperature before feeding it to your baby.
You can do this by sprinkling some of the milk on the most sensitive part of your arm to ensure it doesn’t feel too warm.
Boon Orb Baby Bottle Warmer
Boon is a well-established company and one of the leading manufacturers of infant and toddler products.
They are driven to create modern products that are easy to use and available to everyone and pride themselves on simple yet effective design.
They strive to create modern products that assist parents in their day-to-day lives and yet retain their personal style.
In this Boon Orb Bottle Warmer review, we will take a closer look at one of their highly successful products used for heating up baby bottles.
Who Is This Product For?
This product is a simple and efficient way for any parent to heat up baby milk and baby food jars.
If, however, you are looking for a product that heats up breast milk pouches, then there are better warmers available on the market.
This product may also not be suitable for warming up larger sized baby food containers.
If your baby bottles or food jars are particularly large, then check the manufacturer details before purchasing to ensure your needs can be met.
This product includes the Boon Orb Bottle Warmer and instructions for how to use it.
It also includes a standard cable that plugs into any US 110V outlet.
Overview of the Features
One of the advantages of having a baby bottle warmer, in general, is that it heats up the bottle evenly.
Microwaves are known to create hot spots, which can burn your baby’s mouth, something every parent wants to avoid.
This bottle warmer is an exception, as it uses a steaming process to heat the milk.
Gentle heating through steam also helps to preserve essential nutrients and vitamins found in your breast milk and baby formula.
- Simple Yet Elegant Look
The first thing we noticed when embarking upon this Boon Orb Bottle Warmer review was that we loved the way that it looks on the kitchen counter.
With its elegant exterior and beautiful color scheme of green and white, it’s a nice addition to any kitchen counter or baby's room.
- Non-Skid Base
The Boon Orb Baby Bottle Warmer has a stable non-skid base, which is a must for the fast-acting, modern parent who wants to prevent spills.
- Auto Operation and Auto Shut-Off
One of the best things about this product, however, is the automatic timing and shut-off feature.
With this, you won’t have to wait around, timing the entire heating process!
Just turn it on, let it do its thing, and it will shut-off when your milk is ready.
Not only does this mean that you don’t have to worry about overheating your milk (losing precious nutrients) but also that you don’t have to worry about leaving the device on, which can be really dangerous.
It also only has one button, making it really easy to use, even for technophobes.
While we do love the automatic shut-off feature, it’s a pity that the product doesn’t keep the milk warm for a certain amount of time after the heating.
Other bottle warmers on the market do offer this useful feature.
- Compatible With Most Bottles
This product is, however, very versatile and is created to fit a large array of bottles.
It can be used for regular, wide neck, angled, disposable, and silicone bottles.
- Safe to Use
The warming chamber fits the majority of the bottles for babies, and it also has a basket for baby food jars.
This is a great addition because it allows you to heat up baby food without putting your fingers too close to the steam and risking a burn.
It also has a graduated tube for measuring the quantity of water needed for steaming.
One of the definite pros of the bottle warmer is that it is made without BPA, phthalate, and PVC—no need to expose your baby to any harmful chemicals!
- Compact and Lightweight
The Boon Orb Bottle Warmer is compact and surprisingly light, too.
It also weighs only 1.54 pounds, which makes it your perfect travel companion.
No batteries are needed, just plug it in and let the heating begin.
- Fast Heating Time
A further massive advantage to owning this product is the speed at which it heats the bottles.
It is much faster than other baby bottle warmers we have reviewed in the past.
Other baby warmers may take up to four minutes to complete the heating process, while this one gets the job done in about a minute.
How to Get the Most out of It
This is one of the easiest products on the market to use, so it’s not difficult to get the most out of it.
The Boon Orb Bottle Warmer is light and compact, which is something that most parents prefer.
It will easily fit into your diaper bag and be your faithful companion on the go, whether you are going on a longer trip or just going to visit the grandparents.
Being so light also means it won’t take up too much of your luggage allowance in case you need to fly.
With this, you can stop worrying about losing precious nutrients and vitamins in your baby’s meal, even when other people are operating it.
The bottle warmer is designed to know exactly the right duration for heating, so the best way to get the most out of it is to stop worrying about the timing.
No matter who is using it, with a very simple one-step process, your baby's food will be ready in under three minutes.
Also, no more awkward hot baby food jars and using kitchen utensils to prize them out.
Moms and dads, take care of your fingers and take advantage of the basket for heating baby food jars, which is included in the package.
To make this Boon Orb Bottle Warmer Review more balanced, we decided to compare it to a similar product from yet another well-known brand.
For a fair comparison, we chose the Philips Avent Fast Baby Bottle Warmer.
This bottle warmer will also look great on your kitchen counter, as it has a modern and minimalist design.
It is small and light, and it's perfect for your kitchen or the nightstand in your room.
It is also safe and simple to use.
Once you switch it on, the bottle warmer heats the food or milk over a span of three minutes.
The warmer makes sure that the food and milk are heated evenly so that you know the contents are safe for your baby.
This warmer also fits a wide variety of bottles.
All Philips Avent bottles and toddler cups fit in the warmer, as do the food jars.
The warmer is, unfortunately, not as fast or as easy to use as the one from Boon Orb.
You have to calculate the correct heat-up time yourself, although you do have the help of an easy-to-follow instruction guide, which comes with the product.
A blinking light will indicate when the contents are heated up to the appropriate temperature.
One of the great highlights of this product is a convenient defrost setting, which you can use to defrost pre-prepared milk and baby food.
Unfortunately, this feature, or maybe it’s the brand itself, means that this product is a fair bit pricier than the Boon Orb.
The Philips Avent Fast Baby Bottle Warmer is, without doubt, a really great product.
We particularly love its defrosting feature, which could come in handy if you are a parent storing frozen breast milk for later feedings.
However, after thorough research, we have decided that Boon Orb is the overall winner.
The Boon Orb baby bottle warmer is a top-of-the-line product that enables you to warm up your baby's milk or food safely without worrying about losing nutrients or overheating.
Using special technology that evenly distributes steam, it assures safety and prevents the formation of hot spots.
It fits a wide variety of feeding vessels, from baby bottles to food jars of different shapes and sizes.
The ease of use, however, is by far one of it’s best features.
With just one button for on/off and an automatic shut-off feature, it keeps you and your baby safe on even the most sleep-deprived nights.
It is also affordable for everyone, fast and efficient.
Although this product doesn’t have a defrost feature, we feel that with a bit of pre-planning, you could remove your food or milk from the freezer prior to heating.
