When actress Lara Quigaman shared the story of how she ended up with cold coffee at the end of the day because she was so preoccupied with motherhood duties, Pinays from Smart Parenting's community, Smart Parenting Village, could not help but relate to her experience. And while some of them suggested to just enjoy their coffee cold, one woman found a more "techie" solution: a mini heating coaster that keeps coffee warm for hours!
This USB-powered heating coaster (P603.90) comes with three adjustable temperatures (low, medium, high) and a touch sensor so you can heat up your drink in seconds. Its smart heating system maintains temperature, so if you place a hot cup of coffee on it in the morning, it will still be warm a few hours later. The best part is it’s not just for coffee. According to the product description, it is suitable for most feeding bottles and cups (stainless steel, ceramic, and glass).
The coaster even has a smart timer. Touch it once to turn it on, twice to activate the automatic shutdown after four hours, three times for automatic shutdown after eight hours, and four times for automatic shutdown after 12 hours. It comes in three pretty colors: white, pink, and green!
If you want a no-frills heating coaster, we found a smaller option that is just as efficient. Priced at P664, it will keep your coffee warm for up to eight hours and is able to shut down automatically. The coaster is suitable for any cup with a flat bottom. Just touch to turn on and press the arrow buttons to choose from three temperature settings. It heats up quickly so be careful!
Treat yourself to a warm cup of coffee after all your tasks. Think of it as a gift you can give yourself as a form of self-care. Enjoy!
