Warmer Technology Comparison
Help to get the word out that Speed (fast) warmers are not the best way to go if interested in Preserving Nutrients and Enzymes in Breastmilk and Formula. There are 2 main types of Bottle Warmers on the market today. Here’s a brief description of each.
Speed Warmers- Older Technology marketed by claims of warming bottles fast in 3-5 minutes, which attracts new parents that don’t know better. Most of these warmers do a good job, if one only considered the aspect of warming bottles. But when you look at the possibility of nutrient harm and loss, then these types of warmers show their faults.
Maxx Elite’s Approach:
Gentle Warming- New Technology aimed at preserving nutrients and enzymes in Brestmilk and Formula. These warmers do a great job, but take a little more time, which is a benefit, but to the unknown user could be viewed as a fault.
Timing Chart: Approx 10-12 mins.
|From 0 - 1:30 minutes||Temp reaches 35°C on LCD display|
|From 1:30 - 6:30 minutes||*(Important Note) Temp Holds at 35°C on display for about 5 mins to allow milk temp to equal water temp.|
| From 6:30 to approx 10 minutes|| Breastmilk and Formula Gently warms from 35°C to 40°C/104°F|
| After 10 minutes|| “Steady Warm” will keep milk at desired Temp. and will not shut off or overheat.|
Note: In “Steady Warm” mode Breastmilk and Formula can last up to 4 hours and still be ok to drink because Gentle warming calmly changed the state of the milk and “Steady Warm” calmly maintains the warm state, not killing off nutrients and keeping enzymes alive to fight off bacteria growth.
Note: Tall bottles can be warmed with the top of bottle (nipple) removed and covered using the insulated warmer lid.
Note: When warming formula, one can place a bottle with water only inside the warmer and press “Gentle Warm” then add formula to warm water right before you feed or formula can be added right when placing in warmer. Either way will be fine.
Note: Moms often take one bottle out, feed and after feeding go ahead and prepare another bottle, place in warmer on “Gentle Warm” mode to always have a warm bottle ready whenever baby is ready to eat.
Note: We understand there are times when a baby has to eat right now and fast warming is needed and to this end, we offer our Express option that will warm a bottle in 3-5 minutes as other warmers calm, but understand this is not our focus, but given as an option and also for warming food.
Note: Another important option we offer is Sterilization mode, which is not offer on most other warmers. Kill germs and bacteria in bottles, nipples and other small nursery items.
