Explanation of settings
Off setting: The bottle warmer is switched off and the light is off. On every other setting, the appliance is switched on and the light is lit.
Defrost setting: Defrost a bottle/container of milk/baby food to liquid state. No warming occurs.
Milk warming setting for contents up to 180ml/6oz: Select this setting when you want to warm a bottle of milk with a content up to 180ml/6oz.
Food warming setting: Select this setting when you want to warm a container/jar of baby food.

Using the bottle warmer to warm milk
Put the mains plug in the wall socket.
Place a bottle in the bottle warmer.
Fill the bottle warmer with drinking water up to the level of the milk in the bottle. In case of large amounts of milk, the maximum level of water is approximately 1 cm below the top of the bottle warmer. An accurate water level ensures correct warming performance.
Select the desired setting. See the warming reference table at the end of this chapter to check how long the milk needs to be warmed in the selected setting.
Note: The speed of warming milk depends on the amount of the milk warmed and on its initial temperature, i.e. room temperature (20°C) or fridge temperature (5°C).
The orange light goes on when you select a setting. This indicates that the bottle warmer is on.
Note: Whilst warming the milk circulates and heats evenly.
Check the warming reference table for the time required to warm the milk. Remove the bottle from the bottle warmer after the time indicated in the warming reference table has passed.
Tip: When you find the milk is not warm enough, you can place the bottle back into the appliance for a maximum of30seconds of extra warming. This will create a slightly warmer result but without overheating.
If you leave the bottle in the bottle warmer longer than the time indicated in the settings table, the milk may become overheated. Note: If you overheat breast milk, valuable nutrients and vitamins may be lost.
Always check the temperature before you feed your baby. Gently shake the bottle or milk storage container and check the temperature of the milk by sprinkling a few drops on the inside of your wrist.
Turn the knob back to the 'off' position.
If you do not turn the knob back to the 'off' position, the water keeps warming.
Using the bottle warmer to warm baby food
Follow the same steps as indicated in the previous paragraph.
Make sure to stir the baby food during warming as it does not circulate automatically. Be careful not to burn your fingers when holding the container/jar while stirring.
After warming test the baby food with a spoon to ensure it is not too hot. If the baby food is not warm enough, put the container back into the bottle warmer and warm the baby food until it has the desired temperature.
Note: Due to the high variety of baby food consistencies, it is strongly recommended to continuously stir and check while you are warming the baby food for an optimal result.
At this setting, your frozen milk can be defrosted till liquid state. Check the warming reference table for the expected defrost timings, as indication one small and one larger milk volume are included in the table.
When your milk is defrosted, choose one of the warming settings. Consider the start temperature of your milk around room temperature for the warming timings as rough guideline.
Note: Due to the high variety of baby food consistencies, it is strongly recommended to continuously stir and check while you are defrosting the baby food for an optimal result.
Warming reference table
Start temperature of milk
Note: The indicated warming times are based on Philips Avent Classic and Natural PP bottle ranges. Be aware that warming timings of Philips Avent standard bottles and glass bottles deviate from these indications. The characteristics of bottles such as material or thickness may also impact the warming times, therefore it may take less time to warm a larger volume of milk.
Note: The indicated defrosting times are based on Philips Avent food containers.
Note: Due to the high variety of baby food consistencies, it is not possible to indicate warming timings for baby food.
Note: The food or milk may feel cool to you, but for a newborn baby its temperature is very pleasant.
Cleaning and descaling
After each use, unplug the bottle warmer and let it cool down.
Remove the water from the bottle warmer for hygienic reasons.
Wipe the outside and inside of the bottle warmer with a moist cloth.
Do not use abrasive, anti-bacterial cleaning agents, chemical solvents or sharp tools to clean the bottle warmer.
Note: If you used the bottle warmer to warm containers with baby food, make sure that no spilled baby food remains on the bottom of the bottle warmer.
It is recommended to descale the bottle warmer every four weeks to ensure it continues to work efficiently.
Mix 50ml/1.7oz of white vinegar with 100ml/3.4oz of cold water to descale the bottle warmer. Switch on the bottle warmer, select the milk warming setting for contents under 180ml/6oz and let the appliance operate for 10 minutes. Leave the solution in the bottle warmer until all scale has dissolved.
Note: You can also use citric acid based descalers. Note: Do not use other types of descalers.
Unplug the bottle warmer before you empty it.
Empty the bottle warmer and rinse its inside thoroughly. If you still see traces of scale after rinsing, repeat the descaling procedure.
