We can recommend the Nuk - Thermo Rapid in the area of warming baby milk, but if the porridge is firmer you have to wait a little longer than described and stir more often. With more liquid foods, heating is faster. Caution is also required because the water vapour used in the appliance is very hot. In addition, the appliance smells burned after being switched on.


  • Extra water measuring tank
  • Bottle holder
  • Automatic switch-off


  • No step controller
  • Water vapour is very hot
  • No lid
The baby food warmer heats up quickly, but gets a little hot.

Special features

The Nuk - Thermo Rapid has an additional water tank that can be used to measure the appropriate amount of liquid required. Since the device heats with steam, less water is needed than with other devices.


The packaging is illustrated in a very informative way. Included are a ring set and a bottle holder. The baby food warmer is packed in an additional plastic cover, which is easy to remove.

The device has an attractive appearance and the advantage of having a water tank compared to other products.

Heating result

The water tank on the unit allows you to work accurately with the amount of water needed to heat the baby food. In comparison, this baby food warmer requires much less water than its competitors, as the food containers are not placed in a water bath but heated by a steam bath. In addition, the baby food warmer has an automatic switch-off function that prevents food from overheating.

However, we noticed negatively during the test that the warmer smells quickly burnt after switching on and that this smell did not evaporate during the entire test phase.

After filling the tank, inserting the baby food and pressing the start button the device crackled and steam was produced. This explains the small amount of water the device requires. However, the disadvantage of this process is the enormous heat of the steam, which could also lead to burns if used improperly due to a missing lid. Also, the heated jar got so hot due to the steam that it had to cool down before it could be taken into the hand for feeding.

After the specified three minutes, the pap only reached a cool temperature of 26 °C and should be stirred more often so that the pap in the middle of the glass is also heated evenly. The time can also be extended by a few more minutes to increase the temperature of the pap.

Heating baby milk was faster. Although it still smelled burned and the water vapour was extremely hot, the bottle itself could be picked up easily and the milk was ready to drink. Baby milk was heated to 42°C in just 3:45 minutes.


The delivery includes an instruction manual in six languages with three pictures and a warranty certificate for 24 months. Unfortunately, the operating instructions are somewhat confusing.
