|Category||Criteria||Miracle Bamboo Rating||What Miracle Bamboo Users Say|
|Customer Satisfaction||Based on data collection, this is an overall customer sentiment regarding the Miracle Bamboo pillow.||70%||The Miracle Bamboo pillow has earned a customer satisfaction rating of 70%, which is below-average compared to other shredded foam models.|
|Durability||The average pillow will begin to deteriorate after two to three years of use.||Fair||According to owners, the average Miracle Bamboo pillow will need to be replaced after two to two and a half years of steady use.|
|Firmness Options||Some pillows are only available in one firmness setting, which can be limited for customers who fall outside that loft category.||Poor||One Miracle Bamboo pillow is available; this model is only available as a ‘Medium Firm’ pillow, which may be limiting for sleepers with different preferences.|
|Shape Retention||Some pillows flatten out over time, and require constant fluffing in order to maintain a full, supportive shape.||Fair||The Miracle Bamboo pillow can be machine-dried to give it a fuller shape, but frequent fluffing may be needed.|
|Moldability||Pillows that are highly moldable can be scrunched and squeezed into different positions, which is beneficial for sleepers who snuggle with pillows.||Very Good||Shredded foam pillows tend to be some of the most moldable and snuggly pillows available, and Miracle Bamboo owners say their pillow is no exception.|
|Conforming||Some pillows conform to the contours of the sleeper’s head and neck for optimal comfort and targeted pressure relief.||Good||The Miracle Bamboo pillow conforms closely, and many owners report adequate pain and pressure relief.|
|Temperature Neutrality||Pillows may sleep hot or cold, usually depending on both the air circulation in the interior and the composition of the cover.||Good||Shredded memory foam pillows tend to sleep hot, but the Miracle Bamboo’s viscose from bamboo cover is fairly cool and breathable, which helps with temperature regulation.|
|Odor Potential||Off-gassing is to be expected from most pillows, but some produce stronger, longer-lasting odors that can disrupt sleep.||Poor||Many Miracle Bamboo owners report strong off-gassing smells when their pillow is new, and some say these smells persist for more than a week.|
|Weight||Some pillows are significantly heavier than average, making it difficult for some sleepers to move and maneuver them in the night.||Very Good||A Queen-size Miracle Bamboo pillow weighs roughly three and a half pounds, making it fairly easy for most sleepers to move and adjust.|
|Ease of Cleaning||Depending on the material, pillows may be machine washable or require more intensive cleaning, such as hand washing, spot cleaning, or professional (dry) cleaning.||Excellent||Both the Miracle Bamboo pillow and its case are machine washable. Drying the pillow can help recover its shape.|
