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!
