Tommee Tippee Perfect Prep Machine

As i mentioned in my last blog I bought a Tommee Tippee Perfect Prep machine this week. Unfortunately it's not brand new, it's second hand and was only £35. I would have loved a brand new one but I just couldn't afford the £90 price tag. I did trawl the Internet though looking for the best price, there are quite a lot of them on ebay that start at low bids but then get really high so I tried Gumtree and found a woman in my area who was selling it so I thought I might aswell.

So I picked it up on Monday night and didn't actually get round to using it until the next day. Joey wakes at around 6am so I gave him a bottle and while he was having his morning nap I put the machine on a cleaning cycle which lasts 10 minutes.  Before I even switched the machine on i did give the instructions a good read but I still found myself getting something wrong...ooopsie. After the cleaning cycle I then made joey his feed using it and I got it wrong and had to start the process again.
Basically, what you have to do is put the bottle on the ledge press the on/off button and the machine will pour about an oz of boiling water. You then have 2 minutes to put your formula powder in the bottle (Joey takes between 6/7oz) put the lid on and shake till dissolved and then put the bottle on the ledge again press the on/off button and the machine will then fill the bottle with cold water. At the top of the machine their is a dial where you select how many oz of water.
This machine is a great bit of kit and i wish I had bought it sooner. The only slight niggle I have is that when the machine has finished pouring water it beeps and it is loud. There is no way of turning it down and my only worry would be that when used in the early hours it could wake the house up. Thankfully Joey sleeps through the night so I don't need to get up in the middle of the night. If any of the Tommee Tippee team are reading this then maybe some kind of volume button could be taken into consideration if you decide to make a new model. 

But like I said, great bit of kit. Not heavy or bulky and gets a bottle made in 2 minutes instead of waiting for the kettle to cool down. Keep a look out on various stockist sites, they often do some great deals.

Has anybody got the perfect prep machine? What do you think? 

Thanks for reading :)
