    "When I first sat down to test this product, I was lacking in belief it could really do as you claimed but you've definitely made a believer out of me."

    Of course there is so much more to the BambinOz Bottle Warmer that moms and retailers alike would like to know. Questions like what is inside the BambinOz Bottle Warmer that creates the instantaneous chain reaction, safety for the infant, res usability factor, and more.  This is where you will find it.

    The technology from which the BambinOz Bottle Warmer was developed is nothing new.  This same technology has been being used in sports medicine, camping and fishing industries as well.  The BambinOz Bottle Warmer provides a heat source that is reusable over and over but it doesn't stop there.

    "It is bewildering how this bottle warmer can be so simple yet still work well.  Bottle warmers are finally coming out of the stone age with this new product. It made your event all the more exciting for me."

    * A quote from a mom taken from her consumer hands-on evaluation feedback form.


    The BambinOz Bottle Warmer is so simple and fast to prepare it for next use.  Once the bottle warmer pad has cooled, immersion in boiling water until the contents of the pad return to a fluid state again will renew the functionality.  Average time testing in multiple environments during our evaluation ranged from 8-12 minutes. (Make sure the crystals are completely dissolved before re-use.)

    Primary Features Summarized:
  • Warms milk in 8-12 minutes (based upon OUR analysis and other factors)
  • Completely safe & non-toxic
  • One step click and heat
  • Simple to use and re-use
  • Fits most bottle sizes and shapes (even tall and/or wide)
  • Comes with insulated carry case to keep liquids cold

  • Completely portable - use it anywhere
  • Independently safety tested
  • We gain such pleasure and enjoyment from having the opportunity to evaluate the wide range of products we see each week, but the BambinOz Bottle Warmer is one of the limited few that really puts the icing on the cake for us. We can highly recommend this New Inductee.

    OB/GYN Doctor - MD, PhD
    Infant Product Safety & Health Specialist

    "The BambinOz Bottle Warmer is one which I can openly say is a product of choice when it comes to bottle warmers. The durability, functionality, and far lesser level of risk are things from which a mother gains the greatest of comfort.

    As expected these days, buyers are looking more for products that are simple, functional, durable and have an affordable price point. The BambinOz Bottle Warmer was designed, keeping a mother in mind while remaining consistent in style and price point with what would be seen as a standard by consumers today."

    "An unexpected response from the mothers was how simple the use of the BambinOz Bottle Warmer is. Click, wrap the baby bottle and boil water. That's the entire process of using the BambinOz Bottle Warmer from start to finish. I used polycarbonate plastic (PP), opaque plastic (OP), and Laboratory Grade Glass baby bottles and the results were the same with every one; an effective job of warming the milk in the bottles."

    "In the lab testing for the BambinOz Bottle Warmer, a wide variety of polycarbonate plastic (PP) and opaque plastic (OP)bottles were used. Based upon the lab results from the medical center, there was no measurable level of toxic chemicals detected leeching into the baby's milk with the PP and OP bottles. The Laboratory Grade Glass baby bottles due to this portion of the lab testing not being applicable."

    "While the pad and bottle were in the insulated bag, my testing of the rate of heat loss established that the liner maintains a very slow cooling of the contents and creates an assurance of a more soothing experience for the infant and their mother. Upon completion of my study, the BambinOz Bottle Warmer is well within the acceptable margins to pass my evaluation. The BambinOz Bottle Warmer is an excellent choice for any mother to consider."


    Bioengineer, M.S., Ph.D.
    Director of Product Analysis and Development

    "The BambinOz Bottle Warmer is a simple warming pad which incorporates the use of a food type acetate in a specific fluid substance to create latent heat effect repeatedly."

    "When a stainless steel disc in the pad is carefully flexed just enough to hear a click sound in the warming pad, 'nucleation' with a result of latent heat effect is generated. 

    * Nucleation: The beginning of chemical or physical changes such as the formation of crystals in a fluid substance. In this case, sodium acetate trihydrate crystals to be exact.

    The combination of the acetate trihydrate and the fluid substance in the pad is widely used in many industries. The fusion of the crystals as they are formed is what creates a latent heat effect.  It has no negative impact on the environment or safety concerns, increasing the usefulness and marketability of the BambinOz Bottle Warmer substantially.
    "

    "Whether the bottle being used is Polypropylene (PP), glass, or other material in current standard use, the BambinOz Bottle Warmer has been well designed to work with most. You do need to realize though, that the type of material used for the bottle being warmed will have an ascendancy associated with the period of time the heat will remain. 

    * Disposable bottles are not compatible with the BambinOz Bottle Warmer. There is no way for the heat to transfer from the pad to the milk in the liners.

    "The use of this type of design structure gives the BambinOz Bottle Warmer a significant advantage over most other bottle warmers.  Part of this is due to the lack of electrical cords which reduces the risk of injury to a great extent."

    "The material used for the pad is well above current safety standards in quality and reduces the propagation of any bacteria or germs on the outer surface of the warming pad. A simply mild soap and water cleansing of the pad on a regular basis will maintain a clean and safe surface environment."

    "The BambinOz Bottle Warmer is an excellent balance of good design, functionality, and durability. It is designed to be used for a span of more than just one infant being bottle fed if handled and cleaned properly."

    Consumer Hands-on Evaluation
    Details about the experience at our consumer hands-on evaluation event.

    Consumer hands-on evaluation for the BambinOz Bottle Warmer had an added plus that was well beyond what most products have. An OB/GYN doctor who is also an Infant Product Safety & Health Specialist, was able to take the BambinOz Bottle Warmer to a medical and specialty center where she has her office.

    With the assistance of her colleagues at this facility who donated their time and use of the facility she was able to conduct a full analysis study of the BambinOz Bottle Warmer through hands-on evaluation with a group of mothers of various ages and ethnic backgrounds.

    "I marveled at how during the study I participated in, the warming pad was activated, used to warm milk, cooled, and activated again over 300 times without any confusion or error."

    *  A quote from a mom who participated in an evaluation study with one of our independent credentialed scholars.



    It has been a few years since we have been able to have such an intense independent evaluation report provided for us to add to our own in-house evaluation results.

    There was a vast variety of baby bottles,  hundreds of times of the BambinOz Bottle Warmer used with with these same bottles.  A generous number of people as participants and volunteers were also present to assist in the production of the study.  This resulted in the BambinOz Bottle Warmer having the largest and most in-depth consumer hands-on evaluation ever performed.

    Once the study was completed, the consumer hands-on events were over and we had examined all videos, feedback forms, and our own staff notes, we compiled the results. The BambinOz Bottle Warmer passed this evaluation category for Consumer Hands-On Evaluation with a raving success like no other.

    Awards programs have their simple family opinions on products in their selection of winners, yet they cannot even begin to compare with the valued exposure and credibility gained from consumer hands-on evaluation such as the BambinOz Bottle Warmer garnered.

    *The Toy Man® Product Guide consumer hands-on event referenced here was a test run for our soon to be announced Mega Consumer Hands-On Evaluation Events. We will soon begin hosting these events in various cities across the globe on a quarterly basis.

    Evaluation Category Rating Scores and Summary
    A sampling of the evaluation category rating scores from the product review itself.
    There are a total of 357 evaluation categories in our entire evaluation process.
    (Not all categories apply to any one product or service under evaluation.)


    COST BENEFIT: Rating Level - [5] an image of 5 gold  stars

    The level of quality in the design of BambinOz Bottle Warmer was nothing short of the greatest. What you have here is a product with the right combination of essential elements to make the cost benefit scoring a perfect score in this category. 

    You really get what you are paying for with BambinOz Bottle Warmer. The cost benefit in this category maintains a solid balance in regard to quality, materials, ease of use, wholesale / retail price point, and functionality.


    After reviewing all feedback forms, video tapes, staff notations and category rating sheets, it was clear to see that the BambinOz Bottle Warmer achieved a perfect score of [5] stars for COST BENEFIT.




    DURABILIY: Rating Level - [5] an image of 5 gold  stars

    Determining the level of DURABILITY for the BambinOz Bottle Warmer was simple. We put the BambinOz Bottle Warmer through a vast variety of non-lab testing procedures in addition to those performed by our independent evaluators.

    The warming pad samples were pushed to the limits in every evaluation category to see if they could meet our high standards. To see the samples function just as well as they did from the first use after over 700 repeated uses as well as those by our independent evaluators was nothing short of stunning.

    It was of no real surprise to see the BambinOz Bottle Warmer do so well. After having seen the exceptional performance of the samples in so many of our other evaluation categories, it was only logical for this accomplishment to be expected.

    After reviewing all feedback forms, video tapes, staff notations and category rating sheets, it was clear to see that the BambinOz Bottle Warmer had what it took to manage a perfect score of [5] stars for DURABILITY






    EASE OF USE: Rating Level - [4.5] an image of 4.5 gold  stars

    When it comes to EASE OF USE, the BambinOz Bottle Warmer couldn't possibly have been much more simple and clearly defined.  Click the stainless steel circular plate and BAM!  The catalytic reactions begins and then there is heat. Simplicity is synonymous with ease of use with the BambinOz Bottle Warmer. Add to that the insulated bag that comes with it and you have a champion product.

    Everything appears to be such a simple and easily established decision to rate yet there are two small factors that need to be considered. The activating disk or "trigger" to initialize the catalytic reaction that results in heat being produced can be a minor issue for some. 

    The disk requires but a minimal amount of flex to trigger the catalytic process but some people have a challenge grasping this.  Some will apply too much pressure and essentially cripple the trigger while others will find it a challenge to apply enough pressure.  The end result is a consumer blasting blogs with their dissatisfaction and claims of product failure. This minor issue is significant to impact the evaluation rating score with the loss of one-half point.

    After reviewing all feedback forms, video tapes, staff notations and category rating sheets, the BambinOz Bottle Warmer achieved an almost perfect score of [4.5] stars for EASE OF USE.






    FUNCTIONALITY: Rating Level - [5] an image of 5 gold  stars

    FUNCTIONALITY is probably one of the most important considerations in the evaluation or even purchase of a product which we feature as a New Inductee.  The definition of this term is simple to understand: "...having or serving a utilitarian purpose; capable of serving the purpose for which it was designed."  
    Functionality is a very important part if not one of the most important factors we consider other than quality.  A product may have a good pitch, packaging and appeal yet what good is it if the functionality is limited or almost non-existent? When it comes to functionality, the BambinOz Bottle Warmer proved its worth and favor not once, twice, or even 10 times that.  Even after hundreds of uses, the functionality was never lacking.

    After reviewing all feedback forms, video tapes, staff notations and category rating sheets, the BambinOz Bottle Warmer came strolling through to the finish of its evaluation in this category in a casual stride all the way to a perfect score of  [5] stars for FUNCTIONALITY.






    MARKETABILITY: Rating Level - [5] an image of 5 gold  stars

    How did the BambinOz Bottle Warmer score as far as MARKETABILITY?  I'm glad you asked and am more than happy to answer.  There were a lot of elements to be taken into consideration when you take into account that the BambinOz Bottle Warmer has a carrying/insulation bag, insulating liner, and the BambinOz Bottle Warmer pad itself. 

    Despite so many elements to cover and immense level of analysis needed to establish a baseline of risk percentage, the BambinOz Bottle Warmer came through like a champion.  One of the most impressive details that brought the product to a perfect score was the following from the report by one of our independent evaluators...

    "The BambinOz Bottle Warmer is one which I can openly say is a product of choice when it comes to bottle warmers. The durability, functionality, and far lesser level of risk are things from which a mother gains the greatest of comfort."

    "I used polycarbonate plastic (PP), opaque plastic (OP), and Laboratory Grade Glass baby bottles and the results were the same with every one; an excellent job of warming the milk in the bottles. Based upon the lab results from the medical center, I found no measurable level of toxic chemicals leeching into the baby's milk with the PP and OP bottles in any of the lab tests."



    After reviewing all feedback forms, video tapes, staff notations and category rating sheets, durability, ease of use,wholesale/retail price point and overall quality contributed greatly to the review of the BambinOz Bottle Warmer in this evaluation category analysis. This resulted in the realization of a perfect score  of  [5] stars for MARKETABILITY.






    VISUAL APPEAL: Rating Level - [4] an image of 5 gold  stars

    For the BambinOz Bottle Warmer,VISUAL APPEAL posed a unique challenge. You have to remember that the BambinOz Bottle Warmer is not just a single piece. You have the box it comes in, insulation bag, and of course, the warming pad.

    The focus of this product is more on the functionality rather than the visual appeal. However, the box which holds the insulation bag and warming pad do have high merits in visual appeal.  Not enough to do w whoohoo! about yet still quite strong.  The warming pad itself though barely pulls anything more than an average in visual appeal, if that. It's important to remember though that this evaluation category covers ALL components of the product.

    After reviewing all feedback forms, video tapes, staff notations and category rating sheets, it was established that that the BambinOz Bottle Warmer still came through with an above-average of score of [4] stars for VISUAL APPEAL.
