Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Perfect Prep Machine – a totally new appliance built on Strix technology.
Strix would like to announce the introduction of a brand new appliance featuring Strix developed technology – the Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Perfect Prep Machine.
The appliance represents the culmination of a significant development project, where Strix worked closely with Tommee Tippee, one of the world’s leading Mother & Baby product brands to deliver a whole new category of appliance that addresses previously un-met consumer needs.
The Perfect Prep machine automates much of the process of preparing infant formula milk, delivering purified water at the perfect temperature for baby to drink and eliminating bacteria which can be present in formula milk powder – all within 2 minutes.
This means that mothers and fathers can prepare formula feed for their babies to World Health Organisation guidelines more quickly and conveniently than ever before and with total confidence that the formula is at the ideal dilution and temperature.
The appliance features two key Strix developed technologies, the Instant Flow Heater and Aqua Optima Anti Bacteria Filter.
The former ensures perfect final temperature and volume accuracy as well as delivering an initial hot dispense to eradicate any bacteria that may be in the formula powder and the Anti Bacteria filter eliminates the need for boiling tap water and thus greatly saves time.
The Anti Bacteria Filter System has been tested and approved for:-
Bacteria removal to 300 litres (Intertek Laboratories – UK), NSF42 - Chlorine removal (Water Quality Association - USA), NSF53 - Cyst removal (Water Quality Association -USA) UF membrane (Japan Food Research Laboratories to JIS:3201 standard for bacteria removal)
The Perfect Prep machine will be launched simultaneously in the UK and USA and will be appearing on the shelves of leading retailers and Mother & Baby specialists in both those territories from March 2013. The project is the first time that Strix technology has been featured in Mother & Baby products and demonstrates Strix’s ongoing goal to apply our expertise in water heating and purification to new markets.
“ The Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Perfect Prep Machine is the result on some pioneering work by Strix and Tommee Tippee to bring genuinely world leading innovation to a really exciting new market. Tommee Tippee is one of the world’s largest and most trusted Mother & Baby product brands and it speaks volumes that when looking for a technology owner and product development expert, they chose Strix. The appliance we have developed offers brand new functionality that will make a real difference to parents’ daily lives and we believe could be the beginning of a number of new developments in the Mother & Baby products market.”
