Quick Overview

The Miracle Bamboo Pillow from Ontel features a proprietary blend of shredded memory foam and polyester microfibers encased in a removable polyester liner. The cover is made from a blend of polyester and viscose from bamboo. The pillow has a non-adjustable loft of 5″, and is considered ‘Medium Firm.’

Like other pillows constructed from similar materials, the Miracle Bamboo Pillow offers exceptional temperature neutrality. Good airflow throughout the inner liner helps regulate the pillow’s temperature when it comes into contact with the sleeper’s body heat, and the breathable cover also keeps the surface cool and comfortable for most. The Miracle Bamboo is also highly moldable; as such, it is ideal for those who snuggle with a pillow or prefer to sleep with a pillow between their knees or underneath their legs. And at three and a half pounds, the pillow is relatively light and easy to lift, move, and adjust.

Ontel will ship the Miracle Bamboo to all 50 states, as well as anywhere in Canada. The company backs the pillow with a 60-night trial period. However, the pillow is also available through a wide range of third-party retailers with varying shipping terms and return policies; most offer sleep trials ranging from 30 to 90 nights in length.

Ratings

Next we’ll see how the Miracle Bamboo Pillow rates in terms of durability, conforming ability, odor potential, and other performance factors. Our findings listed below are based on verified customer and owner experiences, as well as our own product research.

Category Criteria Miracle Bamboo Pillow Rating What Miracle Bamboo Pillow Users Say
Category

Durability

Criteria

Most pillows need to be replaced after two to three years of regular use, but the product’s expected lifespan often depends on its material composition.

Rating

Good

What Buyers Say

Although experiences vary, most owners need to replace their pillow after two to two and a half years of use – which is comparable to the lifespan of the average shredded memory foam pillow.

Category

Firmness Options

Criteria

Pillows sold with multiple firmness options accommodate a wider range of customers than those that are available in one setting.

Rating

Poor

What Buyers Say

The Miracle Bamboo is exclusively sold in a ‘Medium Firm’ setting, which may be limiting for those who prefer softer or firmer pillows.

Category

Shape Retention

Criteria

Some pillows require constant fluffing and shaking in order to maintain a full, supportive shape, while others are relatively low-maintenance and require little to no fluffing.

Rating

Fair

What Buyers Say

The Miracle Bamboo Pillow – like many competing shredded foam models – requires regular fluffing to keep its full shape.

Category

Moldability

Criteria

Pillows that are squeezable and cuddly are ideal for sleepers who prefer snuggling with a pillow during the night or using a pillow bolster between their knees or under their legs.

Rating

Very Good

What Buyers Say

The Miracle Bamboo Pillow is very moldable and should be sufficiently cuddly for most pillow snugglers and bolster users.

Category

Conforming

Criteria

Pillows that conform closely to the sleeper’s head, neck, and shoulders tend to alleviate aches and pains and improve spinal alignment more than those that conform less.

Rating

Good

What Buyers Say

The Miracle Bamboo Pillow’s shredded memory foam fill conforms to a noticeable extent, but not as much as most competing single-piece memory foam pillows.

Category

Temperature Neutrality

Criteria

Factors like restricted airflow and synthetic cover fabrics can cause pillows to absorb body heat from sleepers and feel excessively warm as a result.

Rating

Very Good

What Buyers Say

Thanks to strong interior airflow and a breathable cover, the Miracle Bamboo Pillow sleeps very cool even by shredded foam pillow standards.

Category

Odor Potential

Criteria

Most pillows emit some odor when new, but certain materials are associated with stronger and/or more persistent off-gassing smells.

Rating

Good

What Buyers Say

The Miracle Bamboo Pillow produces some odor when new, but long-term smells do not appear to be a major issue.

Category

Weight

Criteria

Most pillows sold today are relatively light, but heavier models can be difficult for some owners to lift and move/adjust.

Rating

Very Good

What Buyers Say

Weighing in at roughly three and a half pounds, the Miracle Bamboo Pillow is considered exceptionally light and should not be hard for most owners to move.

Category

Ease of Cleaning

Criteria

Most pillows can be washed and dried in machines, but some models require dry cleaning, spot cleaning, and other costlier and/or more intensive cleaning measures.

Rating

Excellent

What Buyers Say

Both the cover and inner lining of the Miracle Bamboo Pillow can be washed and dried in conventional machines, making it very low-maintenance in terms of care and cleaning.

As you can see, the Miracle Bamboo has earned high ratings in several categories. These include moldability, temperature neutrality, weight, and ease of cleaning. The pillow’s expected lifespan is also on par with industry averages, despite its relatively low price-point. Lack of firmness options is one notable drawback of the Miracle Bamboo Pillow. It also requires frequent fluffing in order to maintain a full shape.

Caring for Your Miracle Bamboo Pillow

Instructions for First Time Use: Miracle Bamboo Pillows do not require any special treatments prior to first-time use. However, fluffing the pillow can help it expand to its full shape after removing it from the package. Additionally, washing and drying the pillow can help minimize initial off-gassing odors.

Cleaning Instructions:

  • Both the pillow cover and inner liner can be washed and dried in machines. However, excessive washing and drying may cause the memory foam to deteriorate quickly. As a result, owners should only wash the liner when necessary. Early deterioration from washing does not appear to be an issue with the cover.
  • Remove the liner and wash both components together in cold water on a gentle cycle.
  • Dry the liner and cover on a low tumble setting until both components are completely dry.
  • Place the liner in the cover and dry the pillow again to re-expand its full shape.
