Watch dog weren’t clear of any evidence, it sounded more of a smear campaign
We have one and swear by it! Change the filter when it needs changing (it has a warning light) and follow the cleaning routine in the manual... It's not hard. We've had ours just over a year and honestly it was the best thing we ever bought. I cannot tell you how much easier it makes things when there is so much noise and you are so tired at 2am. It is convenience rather than a need, but more in the same way that you don't need a kettle as you could do it on the stove but I'm not gonna bin that either lol

I used to say the same thing. I've a 10yr old and 8yr old whom I just boiled a kettle for. But now I've a 3 month old, and can honestly say the prep machine is the best thing I've bought. Life saver for the night feeds and there's absolutely no evidence that it holds bacteria.

Excellent price, heat added
Amazing deal
Damn need one of theses for the little one due in couple of months
My local Morrison’s manager is a tight arse, I saw something marked down to £4.95 from 4.99, that too a xmas stuff. This is not the 1st time either
Wow
OMG 🔥🔥
Great find
Brilliant price for a brilliant product. Invaluable for those 2am feeds. Mix and feed - no messing about getting water to the right temperature.

This is a amazing life saver. I have one paid a lot more but it’s worth it.

I don’t use a perfect prep machine but can definitely see it has a use. It’s not the same as simply using warm (preboiled) water from a flask. The purpose of using just boiled water is not only to ensure the water is safe but to also ensure any bacteria in the milk powder are killed (I appreciate you may know this but it wasn’t clear from what you’ve written if you use warm or hot water from a flask)

Whilst you can do what the pp machine does manually (add a ‘shot’ of >70°C water to the milk powder to kill bacteria then top up with cold to bring feed down to acceptable temp) it is much easier said than done at 2am with a screaming child in your arms...I mucked it up on more that one occasion, cue even more distress!!

It was found they were using non genuine filters bought from the likes of eBay etc.
Life saver. We bought ours 2 years ago for £75. Using it again for round 2. Great price. Heat
Life saver
This machine is the single best thing I have ever bought I got mine for £40 on amazon at the time. Wasn’t around with my first and can genuinely say I think I would have had my second sooner if it was! It’s just so easy it’s brilliant. As for the flask idea the water unless still boiling wouldn’t be at a suitable temperature to kill the bacteria in the powder so perfect prep would be more effective.

One of our local Morrison's is a bit like that, 10% of a piece of fish or similar that basically needs to be sold that day, or binned. I appreciate they're not a charity, but a bit of common sense could help to avoid a lot of waste.
Anybody confirmed they have found this in any other store
Which Nottingham store was this, did they have more?
I urge anybody who had one if these machines and has been using for a few months now to open the back and check the tubes!! When discussing with our health visitor why our baby had started to become so unsettled she asked right away if we were using this machine and then asked to go home and check the tubes. I kid you not they were BLACK!!! Straight into the bin and very quickly the wee man went back to normal.
Threw ours out recently after 2.5 years. No warning lights or anything, the water just never heated up for the hot shot or got to temperature. No warranty so in to the tip it went.

Couple of things you might want to do if you buy one of these:

1. Remove the insanely loud BEEEEEEP!!! sound. Great for duing the day, but at 3am it's not so good. Here's a guide that shows you how to do this. Don't cut the wire, just use a micro screwdriver to lever the wire out and tape it to a piece of plastic area inside the machine or wrap the end in tape.

REMOVE BEEP VIDEO


2. Don't buy the hideously overpriced filters. I've posted a good set here before, just search online or buy the ones in Wilko's.

WILKO WATER FILTERS FOR £3


3. There's no guarantee your baby will like the formula from this machine. If your little one likes a warmer bottle you could zap it in the microwave or just do it the old fashioned way with a kettle and a cold tap.

Exactly.

Boil a kettle. Wait 30 mins to cool off. Tip it in a flask. Done.

Or just do the first two steps and make up all the bottles for the night and chuck them in the fridge. 30 seconds in the microwave and you're off and running. No need for stupid bottle warmers and all that other junk.
worth ten times that amount, great find

Umm no - using those wilko filters which also fit the machine is why parents were making their children ill. The genuine filters contain a bacterial filtration membrane which generic filters do not
About the price it should be plus just use a microwave if you have one.
I had one with my first child, I cleaned it out, put it into storage 2 years later I get it out to use with my second child, heard all the rumours and thought I better check the tubes. Clear as day, clean not black or mouldy. Change the filter regularly (every 3 months ish) and run the proper cleaning cycle and should be fine. I did have to buy another machine for this baby but that was my own stupid fault I put it up on the fridge out the way ready to prep for new baby, it fell off and well was a bit mullered lol!!! Paid more than this and would pay more!
The people saying "just boiled the kettle" or "stick it in the microwave" have obviously never used one of these. Believe me, I used to say exactly the same. I am a convert.

Please, everyone ignore this advice It's this kind of nonsense that sees bacteria get into the tubing.


A filter will last a couple of months, easily. We've had ours 10 months and have only used maybe 3 or 4 filters in that time, with an average of 6-8 bottles a day.

Your baby's health is not worth risking £20 a year for!

The perfect prep genuine filters can be bought for £9.99 or less (I get mine on Amazon).
Gave my little girl colic not worth it no matter how cheap. Flasks are even cheaper and work better!
These were retailing at £120 last year. We bought ours for £60 and it's been worth it's weight in gold.

Preparing a bottle in 2 minutes is far better than to boiling a kettle and having to wait 30 minutes for it to cool.

People suggesting to pre-make bottles and store in fridge - not only does this keep the bottle longer than recommended (2-3hrs max) but it also risks creating more milk than you may need - wasting formula.

The only negative thing I have is that it makes a minimum 4oz bottle when newborns may need less per-feed

You DO realise Tommee Tippee licensed the filters from Aqua Optima?

Aqua Optima license the filters from a company in China. It's on their corporate information pack.

Those filters are the same filters sold in Wilko et Al.

You go ahead and pay £9.99 a filter. We had NO PROBLEMS at all with it.

Fools and their money...

Nonsense. Aqua Optima license the filters from China. Tommee Tippee license the filters from Aqua Optima.
Here. Aqua Optima ANTI BACTERIAL filters. Stick those in your perfect prep. They're the same thing!

Not in stock on that link but it's an example. They're just rebadged and jacked up in price.

We have used both the Wilko wilters and Tommee Tippee filters and I can say they are definitely not the same.

We didn't have any issues with the Wilko one, but the water filters through them much quicker, where it takes quite a long time to filter through the Tommee Tippee ones, suggesting they are filtering the water much more thoroughly than the Wilko ones.

Falling on deaf ears. Apparently it's worth less than £2 a month to use the machine properly for some.

That's their risk to take, but it shouldn't be bandied around like a "top tip" that isn't risky, considering it was stated as the reason for the mould in the machines anyway.
Which nottingham store is this in?
