Known as the “Dream Machine”, the Perfect Prep helps you prepare a fresh bottle of formula, at the perfect temperature and in your preferred quantity in just a few minutes. See how it got it’s name?!
I’m very open-minded when it comes to baby feeding, because it all comes down to personal experience and choice. At the end of the day, we all want to be good parents who nourish and care for our children in the best way we can. I have tried diferent approaches with all three of my children and experienced the good and the bad. What has worked best for me this time around is mixed-feeding, meaning that I alternate between breastmilk and formula.
As a full-time working mom, I rely heavily on my village (including hubby, mom, sister, nanny and aunt) to help me with taking care of the children and that includes feeding duties. Kgosi had his first experience with formula when he was a month old. His siblings love being involved and they always feel special when they help us out with things like feeding.
If you have chosen to give your baby formula, the Perfect Prep will be a game-changer for your family. As a TommeeTippee ambassador, I got the opportunity to test and review the Perfect Prep and these are the stand-out features for me:
Bottle preparation is hygienic:
What impressed me the most about the Perfect Prep is the innovation and focus on hygiene – the clever peeps at TommeeTippee didn’t just look at the time-saving features. The Perfect Prep has a unique “hot shot” technology which releases a burst of hot water at the beginning of the preparation process, to kill any potential bacteria in your formula.
Over and above this feature, the unique water filter ensures that the water is clean and removes impurities. So the peace of mind is there right from the beginning.
The bottle is ready in about 2 minutes, at body temperature:
If you have experienced a baby’s hunger-cry, you will know why this is also at the top part of my list. The Perfect Prep Machine intelligently mixes your cold and hot water so that milk comes out at body temperature and is ready to serve immediately. This impressed me because it really feels like time is standing still when you’re waiting for a bottle to cool down in a container with ice and fridge water at 2am.
You can serve a fresh bottle, without worrying about cooling or an upset baby stomach due to the milk sitting out for long. Our summer days and nights are very hot!
You can use it with different bottle sizes and any brand of formula:
Sometimes your baby needs a full feed and other times, a top up feed. With the Perfect Prep, you can select the exact amount of milk you want to prepare – which gives you flexibility and minimizes wastage.
It will dispense an accurate amount of water for the bottle size that you select.
As parents, our choices and preferences will always differ, so I think this it’s also important to note that you can use your formula brand of choice.
How it works:
Setting it up was simple – after I actually read the manual, like I was supposed to! Once your Perfect Prep is properly set up, you will follow these simple steps to prepare the bottle:
- Sterilize the bottle before use
- Select the size of the bottle by adjusting the dial and stand
- Wait for the initial “hot shot” to clear any bacteria
- Add in the amount of formula you need, close the bottle and shake it
- Place it back on the Perfect Prep and press the power button for the cooler water to be mixed in. Wait for the beep – you won’t miss it 🙂
- Close the bottle, shake and serve
Some cleaning tips:
- Always wash your hands and clean surfaces in your kitchen before preparing a bottle
- Keep your Perfect Prep away from direct sunlight
- Clean your Perfect Prep regularly and whenever you replace it with a TommeeTippe filter

The Perfect Prep is available in black or white.
