For your safety and continued enjoyment of this product, always read the instruction book carefully before using.
12. Extreme caution must be used when moving an appliance containing hot oil or other hot liquids.
When using an electrical appliance, basic safety precautions should
always be adhered to, including the following:
13. Follow guidelines in the instructions for amount of water for a given bottle size depending on room or refrigerator temperature.
14. Always be sure that you are using the correct volume of water before beginning the warming cycle. The warmer should be emptied of residual water before each subsequent use.
2. Always unplug unit from outlet when not in use, before putting on or taking off parts, and before cleaning. To unplug, grasp plug and pull from electrical outlet. Never pull cord. Allow to cool before handling.
15. When in use, the warmer contains hot water. Be careful to avoid spilling any water on yourself when removing bottle or jar from warmer.
3. To protect against risk of electric shock, do not put cord, plug or unit base in water or other liquids.
16. Do not operate your appliance in an appliance garage or under a wall cabinet. When storing in an appliance garage, always unplug the unit from the electrical outlet. Not doing so could risk a fire, especially if the appliance touches the walls of the garage or the door touches the unit as it closes.
4. Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by or near children.
5. Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug, after the appliance malfunctions, or if appliance has been dropped or damaged in any manner. Return the
appliance to the nearest authorized Cuisinart Service Facility for examination, repair, and electrical or mechanical adjustment.
17. Do not use the appliance for other than intended use.
18. Where applicable, always attach plug to appliance and check that the control is OFF before plugging cord into wall outlet. To disconnect, turn the control to OFF, then remove plug from wall outlet.

19. Do not place on or near a hot gas or electric burner, or in a heated oven.
7. Do not let cord hang over edge of table or counter, or touch hot surfaces.
8. Don’t attempt to handle the electrical cord to plug or unplug the unit when your hands are wet.
9. Do not use outdoors.
10. Before serving be sure food is at safe temperature.
11. Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handles or knobs.
A short power supply cord is provided to reduce the risks of becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord. Extension cords may
be used if care is exercised.
5. Food Warming Basket – uses steam to heat up food quickly.
If an extension cord is used, the marked electrical rating of the extension cord should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance. The longer cord should be arranged so that it will not drape
over the countertop or tabletop, where it can be pulled on by children
or tripped over unintentionally.
6. Simple Dial Control – easy OFF/ON operation.
7. Cord Wrap (not shown) – takes up excess cord and keeps
countertop neat.
8. BPA Free (not shown) – all materials that come into contact with
food are BPA free.
This appliance has a polarized plug (one prong is wider than the
other). As a safety feature, this plug will fit into a polarized outlet only
one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If
it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to
defeat this safety feature.

Tips and Hints
Cleaning accessories and base
• Clean all accessories in warm soapy water or on the top rack of the
• Wipe the base clean with a damp sponge or cloth. Dry it immediately. Never submerge the base or the plug in water or other liquids.
For best results, use purified water to prevent calcium deposits in the
warming chamber. When storing food, refrigerated food should be
enjoyed within 3 days, and frozen foods should be used within 30 days
for optimum freshness.
• Sometimes mineral deposits form inside the steam chamber and can
cause damage to the machine. To avoid buildup of these minerals,
the unit should be de-scaled once a month.
• To descale, pour 50 ml of white (distilled) vinegar into the steam
chamber. Leave for at least 2 hours then empty.
Q: Why won’t steaming start when I turn the unit on?
A: Check that the plug is securely inserted into the outlet.
A: The warming chamber may be empty. Add water to the steam
Q: How do I empty the unit of excess water?
A: To empty the unit of excess water, tilt the unit onto its side over the
sink and any extra water will come out.
Storage • The Cuisinart Baby® Bottle Warmer stores neatly on the countertop,
taking a minimum of space. When it is not in use, make sure to
empty any leftover water from the unit and leave it unplugged. The
hidden cord storage underneath the base will help keep excess cord
off the countertop.
Q: Why is there a white residue in the bottle warming chamber?
A: Mineral-rich water causes calcium deposits to build up in the
bottle warming chamber. The unit should be cleaned out once a
month to avoid this buildup. See decalcification section in Cleaning
and Maintenance, following. To help prevent/minimize this buildup,
fresh or purified water can be used.
Q: Why is the milk bottle/food jar too hot or too cold?
A: Because there are so many variables when warming bottles/food
jars, adjustments to the water amounts in the instruction booklet
may be necessary. If the bottle/food jar was too hot try adding less water next time. If it was too cold try adding more water next time.
A: Make sure to shake the bottle/stir the food to distribute the heated
contents after warming before checking the temperature.
