How does a baby bottle warmer work?

Comment fonctionne un chauffe biberon ? The principle of the baby bottle warmer is to heat the milk to the right temperature, without destroying its nutritional properties (which is the case with the microwave). In addition to heating, the baby bottle warmer keeps the bottle warm for a little while, which helps when you’re busy to the right and left.

Depending on the model, the operation of the baby bottle warmers may differ. Some follow the principle of the water bath. The baby bottle is placed in a container of hot water, warming the bottle and its contents. Other models heat the water to be put in the baby bottle directly, then simply add the powdered milk. You can also find models of electric baby bottle warmers that heat milk by steam.
