Explanation of Settings
- Off Setting: Both the bottle warmer and the light are off. The appliance is turned on and the light is illuminated when the other settings are selected.
- Defrost setting: A bottle or container of milk or baby food should be defrosted until liquid. There is no warming.
- Setting for warming milk with a maximum capacity of 180ml/6oz: When you wish to heat a container of milk with a content of up to 180ml/6oz, choose this setting.
- Food warming setting: When you want to heat a jar or container of baby food, choose this setting.
- Setting for milk warming for quantities greater than and equal to 180 ml/6 oz: When you want to reheat a bottle of milk that contains more than 180ml/6oz, choose this option.
Warming milk in the bottle warmer
- In the wall socket, insert the mains plug.
- Insert the bottle warmer with a bottle.
- Drinking water should be added to the bottle warmer until it reaches the level of the milk in the bottle. The maximum level of water in the bottle warmer for significant amounts of milk is roughly 1 cm below the top. A precise water level guarantees proper warming operation.
- Choose the preferred setting. To determine how long the milk has to be warmed in the chosen setting, consult the heating reference table at the conclusion of this chapter.
The volume of milk heated and the temperature at which it was first placed, i.e., at room temperature (20°C) or refrigerator temperature (5°C), determine how quickly milk warms.
When a setting is chosen, the orange light turns on. This proves the bottle warmer is turned on. Note: The milk flows and heats uniformly as it warms. Note: The milk flows and heats uniformly as it warms.
For the duration of time, it takes to warm the milk, consult the warming reference chart. When the time period specified in the warming reference table has passed, remove the bottle from the bottle warmer.
Warning: The milk may overheat if you keep the bottle in the bottle warmer for any longer than the amount of time specified in the settings table.
Always take your milk’s temperature before feeding them. Shake the bottle or milk storage container gently, then verify the milk’s temperature by dabbing a few drops of it on the inside of your wrist.
Warming baby food in the bottle warmer
Repeat the actions outlined in the preceding paragraph. Baby food does not circulate spontaneously when warming, so mix it occasionally. When holding the container or jar while stirring, take care not to burn your fingers.
After warming, use a spoon to check that the baby food isn’t too hot. If the baby food is not warmed sufficiently, rewarm it by placing the container into the bottle warmer until it reaches the right temperature.
Note: For the best outcome, it is imperative to stir and inspect the baby food constantly while it is warming due to the wide range of baby food consistencies.
You can defrost your frozen milk to a liquid form using this setting. Check the heating reference chart for the anticipated defrost timings; it includes indications for a small and a big milk amount. Once the milk has defrosted, select a warming setting.
As a general rule of thumb, start your milk at a temperature that is close to room temperature. Note: For the best results, stir and check the baby food frequently while it is defrosting because there is such a wide range in the consistencies of baby food.
AVENT Classic and Natural PP bottle ranges are used to determine the specified warming times. Be advised that glass bottles and Philips AVENT standard bottles warm up at times different from those shown.
The times for defrosting that are listed are based on food containers made by Philips AVENT. Note: Baby food warming times cannot be specified due to the wide range of baby food consistencies.
Though the food or milk may feel warm to you, a newborn baby finds the temperature to be incredibly comforting.
How To Clean Your Philip Avent Bottle Warmer
Disconnect the bottle warmer after each usage to allow it to cool. For hygiene reasons, empty the bottle warmer’s water reservoir. Use a wet towel to clean the bottle warmer’s exterior and interior.
Never clean the bottle warmer with harsh chemicals, antibacterial cleaners, or sharp objects.
Make sure that there is no spilled baby food left on the bottle warmer’s bottom if you used it to warm baby food containers.
Descaling your Philips Avent Bottle Warmer
The bottle warmer should be descaled every four weeks to make sure it keeps functioning properly.
Pour 200ml/7oz of cold water and 10 grams of citric acid into the bottle warmer. Turn on the bottle warmer and choose the 10-minute milk warming preset for bottles with less than 180 ml/6 oz of liquid. The solution should remain in the bottle warmer until all of the limescale has disappeared.
At the end of its useful life, turn in the appliance at a designated collection location for recycling rather than throwing it out with other household trash. You contribute to environmental preservation by doing this.
