Product Description

Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Perfect Prep Machine

Closer to Nature Perfect Prep machine makes a fresh bottle at just 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 formula bottles quicker and more accurate, Perfect Prep gives parents the extra peace of mind that comes from knowing baby's bottle will be ideal every time.

Key Features

Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Perfect Prep Machine preparation
Filter logo Hot shot logo Body temp logo Accurate logo

The in-built filter system removes impurities from water, and dispenses the correct amount of water, in ounces, for an accurate formula consistency.

For an added safety measure, the Closer to Nature Perfect Prep machine dispenses an initial “hot shot” of water that kills any bacteria that may be present in the formula. The initial burst of hot water also helps to dissolve the formula quickly and easily.

After the “hot shot,” cooler water is dispensed, to ensure every bottle is delivered at body temperature -- just like breast milk.

Perfect Prep works with any brand of powdered formula milk, and has an adjustable base for different bottle shapes and sizes -- simply measure out the formula and the Perfect Prep does everything else.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is an ingenious idea/invention by Tommee Tippee although as many reviewers have stated in their reviews this unfortunately is not without a couple of shortcomings which if addressed and 'fixed' by Tommee Tippee would definitely make this an excellent baby product to own. It is for these couple of issues that I will mention below that I have marked it down a star rating.

When you first unpack the machine you need to complete a cleaning cycle to ensure that the machine itself is clean and ready for filtering your tap water. This process took about 20 minutes rather than the advertised 10 minutes in the instruction booklet as the water tank seems to take a bit of time for the water to fill all of the way through the water filter into the bottom section of the water tank. However this in my opinion was not a negative to the product but I just thought I would mention it in case another person thinks like I did that I was doing something wrong. The instruction booklet is very clear with a step by step process (and pictures too) and describes how to set up the machine and do the cleaning cycle along with how to actually use the machine, how to stop it if needed, maintenance and descaling so I was quite impressed with the clear and easy to follow instruction leaflet.

The machine has a cleaning mode and de-calc/de-scale mode which I thought is a brilliant idea and saves you having to faff around with de-scaling products. The machine is also very clever in that it detects when these things needs to be done and alerts you to the fact by lighting up one of the corresponding warning lights. The machine also indicates when the water level is low in the water tank to enable you to fill it, when the water tank is hot and when the filer needs changing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cant live without it 12 Jun 2014
By Emilia
Verified Purchase
This bottle maker is worth every penny. I could not imagine how I would make all the bottles for my hungry crying baby, especially at night. This bottle maker takes a minute and give a milk the right temperature. This saves me a lot of time which I can spend with my baby. Its perfect. I am so happy that I purchased it after hesitations due the price.You won't regret it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Too warm indicator light = useless piece of junk 29 July 2014
If I wrote this 2 months ago then I would have given it 5 stars for being an amazingly convenient gadget.

However, it is now July and I would give it zero stars (if it was possible). Like many other 1 star reviews the reason is that the machine has stopped dispensing due to the constantly on "too warm" temperature light. It is not kept in direct sunlight and the water being put in is cold. Being a new parent I have water and room thermometers handy and when I test the water it isn't even 25 degrees.

I wrote to Tommee Tippee to get their views and they sent back a copy and paste response. I notice that another reviewer here from 2013 got the same exact response so they obviously are not doing anything about it.

Anyway, this was their response:

"Thank you for your email.

Tommee Tippee is always pleased to receive feed back both negative and positive.

The Perfect Prep unit contains a probe that measures the temperature of the water in the tank, preventing the unit from dispensing if the water is above 25 C. This is a key safety feature to ensure that the final feed is not too hot. High water temperature should only ever be an issue in hotter climates. However, the UK has experienced higher summer climates of late. It is not uncommon for mains water to rise in temperature under these conditions. To support with this, we recommend that the cold tap is flushed for at least 10 seconds before filling the tank. Although it is unlikely that the temperature of the water inside the tank will rise significantly, other preventative actions include (i) keeping the unit out of direct sunlight and (ii) regularly topping up the hopper with cold tap water rather than letting a full unit stand and warm for long periods of time."

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant product for those having to bottle feed 25 July 2014
We purchased this amazing machine for our second born as it wasn't around when we had our first and my, oh my how I wish it had been (there is an 18 month age gap). It has totally revolutionised our lives! There are a couple of things that could be tweaked, the loud beep as mentioned by other reviewers, you can't change the amount of the feed within the first few seconds after pressing go (although that's probably a safety function). However, if you are exclusively bottle feeding, I would recommend feeding room temperature pre made bottles at intervals, so baby doesn't get used to their feed all at exactly the same temperature. My youngest now flatly refuses to take a bottle unless the perfect temperature, whereas we managed to feed my eldest his bottles cold, room temperature or warm. All in all, this is a fantastic product and I can't recommend it highly enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute baby essential! 5 April 2014
Verified Purchase
My husband and I are first time parents and were told about this machine at an antenatal class by another couple. At first, I was cynical and thought it might be just an expensive gadget. However, my sister, who already has two children, said she thought it sounded like a godsend so we ordered it.
I'm so glad we did! This machine is an absolute essential, especially during the night when baby wakes up!
Basically, you steralise your bottles as normal and then when baby is crying, you put the bottle under the water dispenser. A 'shot' of hot water is poured into the bottle and a beep lets you know to add the required amount of formula. After a quick shake to mix the water and the formula, you put the bottle back under the dispenser where water is added to the correct measurement and to perfect temperature ready to give immediately to baby. It saves so much time and means you can quickly prepare a bottle, saving the 10-15 minutes it can take to traditionally make a bottle and cool it down while baby is crying and frustrated.
The only downside we can find is that the machine has a minimum setting of 4oz so when we first brought our son home and he was having less milk, we either made a bottle to 40z and wasted the surplus (especially during the night to save time and sleep deprivation!) or made bottles up traditionally until he was ready to have 4oz. Someone mentioned in a review that you can stop the machine when you want by pressing the 'start' button again if you want less than 40z - however, the midwife advised against this as she said it was not very accurate and could lead to kidney problems if you are not measuring formula accurately.
