Bought this machine after seeing it in the circular! So happy we did! Making bottles is now a cinch. We were originally going to buy a Water Boiler/Warmer, but after reading mixed reviews on a few diff models, decided to go with this instead. Pick the ounces of your bottle, place empty bottle underneath dispenser, press the big round button, and thenn boiling water comes out.. Add powder formula and shake, then put it back under the spout, press the big button, and warm filtered water comes out. All in less than 2 minutes, and always has the bottle at perfect temp! Great investment! Do not hesitate on this! You will love it!

When we first got this product for our newborn, we weren't sure how useful this would be, but after the first couple weeks of heavy use, we really found it handy to have.But (and this is a huge one), we are now on our third unit in 8 months. The two previous units have died unexpectedly. Luckily, we had the extended warrenty because we are now left to wonder what we will do with it, once our daughter moves from formula..It is a pretty simple idea - you dial in the amount of water you need on the top, and hit the button. The first small amount of water is boiling hot, and then you add your formula powder. Then you finish filling the rest of the bottle with the second botton press. Pretty simple to use.Problem is, it will occassionaly give you a dumb look when you press the button, so you have to wait a tick and press it again to start the process. And then there is the dreaded nothing. Twice now, we have gone to use the machine and absolutely nothing - no lights no heat no water no nothing. We checked the breakers, unplugged it and let it sit, and still nothing. If we didn't have the warranty, I might have been tempted to crack it open and see if there something bad on the inside, but instead, took it back to the store and exchanged it.Not sure what the deal is, but if this happens for again - I will probably ask for the money back.

Best thing invented since diapers!!
from Dallas Texas
Comments about Tommee Tippee 1017092 Tommee Tippee Closer To Nature Perfect Prep Machine:
This machine is the best thing invented since disposable diapers!! I can make my child a warm bottle in seconds and it is always the perfect temperature!! Some have commented it overheats and the red warning light is always on! In the instructions it says to use refrigerated water when you fill the water tank!! If you use refrigerated water the machine will function normally! I have used mine everyday for 2 years and it has never failed!! If the warning light for temperature comes on,top off water with cold refrigerated water! I occasionally dump out the reserved water and wipe it out and put fresh cold water back in it! Take care of the machine and you will love it!!

We have owned this machine for a year now and it's never failed us. We always used cold water with is as that's what we heard worked best. It's a life savor for the middle of the night feedings.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love this product. With a 4 year old, 2 year old, and a 4 month old its quick and easy! Bottles are perfect amount and temperature. Also with the filtration you don't have to buy jugs of nursery water!

Great...until it wasn't

About Me First Time Parent
I really liked this product for the first month or two that we owned it. Then one afternoon, the machine wouldn't turn on or do anything at all. It was dead. Very annoying that it just dies like so many others that I read about.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

So I originally had this machine and it worked REAL good for 4 months. than it stop working. I went to the store and purchase another one and oh boy, to make a long story short I went though 5 machines before I finally gave up.I read a few reviews and I see why. Don't waste your time or money.

DO NOT BUY!
Almost every review we read was different, some good, some bad. But the most consistent was the fact that it would stop working after one bottle. Regardless, we thought we would give it a try. Well, it stood up to its reviews... After two bottles, it wouldn't even turn on anymore. Don't waste you time with this product... Their are others like it out there, try those instead.

Quality control needed
By Mark the lazy dad
from The woodlands texas
First unit had part missing that holds the water level meter so it never worked right. CS stated to take unit back cause the part was not available. So took it back without issue and before I left the store I checked and part was there on 2nd unit. 2nd unit last one month and now just died at 10pm. Was a lil spoiled on how easy this made our lives and it seems the quality is not there. They should sub this out to mr coffee or othe coffee maker company. I'm taking it back but will be buying the extended warranty since this item has a short lifespan. When it worked it rocked, made approx 350 bottles before it died.

Not worth the money!

I WAS SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS FORMULA DISPENSER. I usually would not spend over a hundred $ but thought it would be worth it especially being Tommie Tippie. It is honestly a iglorified water heater/purifier.
Still doesnt work
from Jacksonville, NC
I am currently on my second perfect prep and returning it for another try. The first machine started up once and then appeared to burn out. The second machine worked great for two weeks and now does not turn on at all. I contacted customer service and was told that once I submitted proof of purchase they would then send me a label to send them the machine where they would conduct an evaluation of what was wrong and this process could take longer than 6 weeks. I am extremely dissapointed as when the machine did work it was a great item to have.

Extremely fast and perfect temp each time! My baby sitter loves this machine as much as I do. She told me when she has kids she's getting one.If I had a day care I'd invest in these for the baby room!
