We loved ours. We used to measure out the milk powder into those little pots in the morning so it was even easier, the machine puts a hot shot of water in, add milk powder and swirl it to dissolve then it tops it up with cool filtered water.

The perfect prep machine was my second best baby purchase second only to my Ergo and only second because I got so much use out of my Ergo (used it nearly daily until my LO turned 2)

Loved my prep machine. We even bought one for my mums house! I used to boil water cool it and store it in jugs in the fridge which i then used to top up the machine. Its an extra possibly unnecessary step but overall its super simple and easy and i would have one with every child i ever have!!!

I read somewhere that it didn't boil the water to the right temperature, not to sure how true that is though...
I prefer to just make the bottles as my baby needs them with boiled water from the kettle!

I really cant cope waiting for it from the kettle. I will make them the way I did before if not but the machine sounds so useful! Thanks all xx

I was wondering how this worked with different instructions on different powdered brands. I used aptamil so added a few oz of freshly boiled water to the powder then topped up with cooled boiled from the fridge. So same principle as pp but manual.

My friend used cow and gate I think and the box instructions said the water had to be left to cool for half an hour?

The instructions will vary from leave the water to cool for up to 20 minutes or up to 30, the water has to be over 70 degrees but under 100 as boiling water will also kill some of the nutrients in the milk.

Yes I remember C&G saying that. I always added it to boiling with my 1st. How my mum taught me!

I love my perfect prep! I used to use cooled boiled water in it but have stopped now.

There is an article somewhere online that says TT had the machine tested by a company called Intertek, they tested the water after it had been filtered (and used wAter with much higher levels of contaminates than tap water) and the filter got all the crap out. It's as good as boiling it basically.

The only thing that's questionable is the hot shot staying hot enough for long enough to kill any bugs in the milk powder. But id say as long as you work quickly when adding the powder and shaking/mixing, then it's probably fine!

I've been doing my research on it and reading the box on the one I have! The hot shot is 70 degrees, same as recommended when using a kettle since you need to leave the water to cool after you boil it. And the machine is on a timer, you have two minutes after the hot shot to add the powder and put the other water in, if you don't then you have to dispose of the feed and start from scratch! So all in all, looks amazing and does everything that is supposed to be done when making formula. I have a suspicion that the controversy has something to do with the fact that formula feeding is not encouraged and this makes it nearly as convenient as breast feeding. Not quite but closer. But that might just be my own opinion on the matter
