I got this bottle warmer to cut down the time it generally would take to warm water, then the bottle.... and this warmer does take little time - about 4 minutes for around 6 ounces of breast milk. It is not too loud, and is automatic in the essence that when the warming cycle is complete, it shuts off on it's own - very handy. The cooler in the back, is just that, a cooler with a small bottle that you can to freeze for the cooler to be effective. If you forget to freeze the water bottle, the cooler is useless. The downside - do not use this bottle with hard water or water than has minerals in it because the warmer will heat up and smell like it is burning something, but in reality, it is the minerals that are "cooked" out. Also - I use Playtex Vent-Air bottles, and this warmer must force a small amount (less than an1/8 of an ounce) out the bottom, because the water that is steaming, is tinted brown, thanks to the breast milk that escaped out, "cooking". Another downside - the water measurements that they recommend to use - are WAY off. You have to trial-and-error to adjust to proper heating... and until you get it just right, you are often stuck with a cold or cool bottle, and can't reheat it for TEN minutes - because the element must cool before you can reheat. The unit is kind of large to, thanks to the cooler BASE being attached to it... I wish they could separate.
