The best travel bottle warmers we’ve selected use a variety of methods for heating milk, from hot water to induction heat, and they’re all designed to be used on the go, and they’re able to be stashed away safely once you’re done using them. Many parents prefer the water heat, as it’s convenient and in many cases can be prepared well in advance. In situations where this isn’t possible, the electric or battery-operated induction heat warmers might be more convenient. Both heat the bottle evenly and efficiently, but the electric warmers tend to work a bit quicker, especially for cold bottles.
Many of the electric bottle warmers hook right into a USB port, meaning that pretty much anywhere you have access to a charging port, you can warm your baby’s bottle. Conveniently, the warm water bottle warmers just require hot water. Pro tip: a tall hot coffee works in a pinch. (Ask us how we know.)
Which one you choose will likely depend on when you’re using it, how often you’re using it, and how much you want to spend. If you’re going to use it a lot, and it makes sense to have a warmer that can go from the car to the office, and even the camper or campsite, a pricier model that’s more durable, and has more bells and whistles like a timer and temperature selection, might make a lot of sense. Water warmers are great, but they’re kind of one-trick ponies. The Thermos types are wonderful for shorter day trips, but for things like the office, going on vacation, or road trips, they can be tricky.
