Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Perfect Prep Formula Machine

Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Perfect Prep Machine The Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature perfect prep machine makes a fresh bottle at the right serving temperature in less than two minutes. When baby arrives there’s so much to do and to think about, so many things to juggle, so much that’s new and challenging. That’s why Tommee Tippee has created the perfect prep machine. Specially designed to make preparing bottles quicker and more accurate, perfect prep gives parents the extra peace of mind that comes from knowing baby’s bottle will be perfect every time. Developed for parents that choose formula, the filter system removes impurities from water, and dispenses the correct amount of water, in ounces, for an accurate and ideal formula consistency. The filter system removes impurities & dispenses the water for an accurate formula consistency. The machine dispenses an initial “hot shot” of water, killing any bacteria found in the formula. After the hot shot, cool water is dispensed to ensure every bottle is delivered at body temperature. Perfect Prep works with any brand of formula and has an adjustable base for different bottle sizes. At night, pre-select size, fill reservoir, measure formula & when baby wakes press the start button. Use with Closer to Nature bottles designed with experts to encourage a natural feeding action. Pair the Closer to Nature perfect prep machine with Closer to Nature’s award-winning range of BPA-free baby bottles for content, easy feeding times. The entire closer to nature range is an interchangeable system. Our bottles fit directly with our breast pumps, into our sterilizer and bottle warmers offering parents everything they need to feed a newborn. The Closer to Nature bottle range is available in a 5 fl. oz., 9 fl. oz. & an 11 fl. oz. added cereal option, along with a decorated boy/ girl bottle. All bottles are available in a variety of pack sizes and our nipples come in different flow rates. Why choose Tommee Tippee? Tommee Tippee, from the U.K.-based Mayborn Group Limited, has earned a reputation for its clever ideas, product quality and simply intuitive designs that promote natural development at every age, stage and feeding need. Today, Tommee Tippee innovations provide comfort for babies and peace of mind for parents in 45 countries around the world. Requires water even when full – There is a float inside of the machine which controls the water level, it sounds as though it has become a little stuck, however this can be easily fixed. Firstly empty the machine of water, dry thoroughly and remove the filter, then give the machine a gentle shake. Once this has been completed, you should see the float moving freely. Return the filter and then use the machine as normal. Won’t power on – if there is “no power” from new, ie. It’s out of the box and not previously used then this should be replaced. If the machine has worked previously then stops we would suggest replacing the fuse in the first instance.

Time Saver

This device is what I consider a time saving luxury item but not an essential appliance. It’s easy to use and saves you a little time in making forumla. You can step away and do something else while the machine works for you! But it’s really not that hard to make formula yourself so you just need to decide do I want to save a little time with this appliance? If you have the counter space and the money this might be a handy helper. It works well and is easy to use and for that I would recommend it. Hope this review helps a little in making your decision!

Makes preparing formula a two step process.

When I first saw this item, I thought it was a great idea. In the past, I know that getting the bottle to the right temperature was hit and miss (and it only takes once where you give a baby a bottle that is TOO HOT, to make you feel like a terrible caregiver. This Tommee Tippee formula machine takes care of that. Not only does it make sure the temperature is right, it also shoots hot water into the bottle to sterilize first. GREAT IDEA.The only complaint I have is that it would be noce to have a built in formula dispenser like some of the competitors have.Overall I think this is a great item especially for parents that are dependent on feeding formula

Perfect Formula Bottles in 2 Min

Formula moms are generally not encouraged but many of us cannot breastfeed. Tommee Tippee gets that. My son was born with a cleft lip that hindered my breastfeeding capabilities, which was hard enough to deal with without all the judgement and stink eyes! The Perfect Prep is SO absolutely amazing. It prepares bottles at the perfect temperature/consistency. It totally eliminates the need for a bottle warmer (unless you are thawing/heating refrigerated breast milk, which I am not anymore). It filters water and the “hot shot” sterilizes and kills any bacteria in the formula. I feel great giving my baby these bottles and he’s thrilled with the body temperature… sends him right off to dreamland. This is a must for any mom not exclusively breastfeeding!

Nice product to get you your bottle in a couple minutes.

First and foremost, Amazon shipped fast, arrived on time and undamaged, good job. The Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Perfect Prep Formula Machine is a great little machine for moms to get their formula in 2 minutes. I presented this as a gift to my wife’s best friend and asked her for her review. She noted that it was very easy to manage, quick to get a bottle, and just the right temperature. She also noted that the hot-shot feature works well. She has tried 3 different bottle types on this machine as well, and all have worked, so that is a bonus. I asked her about negatives and she noted that the machine didn’t heat up once. Overall, she recommends it.

Not built to last. Stopped working after using it 6 times.

This machine is great, if it would work. I bought it 6 months ago, when I first had trouble breast feeding and had to supplement. I used it 6 times, then descaled it and put it away until last week. Now, It won’t turn on, I have tried countless times.Because I purchase organic (Hipp or Holle) formula from overseas, the formula requires initial boiling to kill bacteria before serving. This product would be perfect, because it has that feature built in. It allows for different serving portions from 4 to 11 oz.It would be better if it allowed for 2 or 3 oz settings, but that can be worked around.Overall, I wanted to love this product. But is stopped working after 6 times of use.

So I was pretty excited to get this until I saw that it only heats water. Previous reviewer is right, it’s a kettle. I was hoping that you could mix the formula in there. I’m a huge fan of tommee tippee products but this one is a let down. While people may think 2 min is great but I just zap our in the microwave for 20 seconds and it’s ready.

Good for multiple baby households or daycare.

I got this for my sister in law who has three babies under one year old (twins and a newborn). She goes through a lot of formula and she often has at least one arm occupied with a little one. Anything that makes common tasks easier to do (with one hand) is a great relief to her. I brought this over to her house and set it up. You fill it up with water once or twice a day depending on how much formula you anticipate needing and it provides the right amount of preheated water at the touch of a button. It works great, but I think it is a bit pricey for what it is and I am not sure it is worth it for just one baby. I do think it is useful for homes with multiple babies or even day care centers.Thanks for reading. I hope this review is helpful!
