SO DID YOU FIND MOULD IN YOURS?????!!!!!!

BlueFolly Wed 15-Mar-17 00:33:31

God I thought you were going to say one had EXPLODED IN YOUR FACE!!! Or something. Mould in kitchen equipment not so dramatic in this house grin

Calm your pants. No need to shout although I agree about warning people. Yes it's disgusting and awful but I think it's mostly down to not cleaning it properly. Mine is fine along with 6 other's that I know have been checked in the last 24 hours.

Is it just me, that thinks it very obvious that you would need to regular check and clean the pipes?

I don't get what the shouting is all about confused

There is a prep machine to measure out a scoop of milk powder and a bottle of water? What will they think of next, a nappy changing machine measuring out 1 nappy and 4 wipes gringrin?

kel1493 Wed 15-Mar-17 01:08:06

Paxillin- my thoughts exactly. We make bottles by hand. No need for any machine IMO

PigletWasPoohsFriend Wed 15-Mar-17 01:09:09

You should check and clean them regularly.

IS THAT OK OP?

JonesyAndTheSalad Wed 15-Mar-17 01:16:18

Pax I think it's more to do with the temperature. You know how the Health Visitors insist on bottles being an EXACT temp these days.

I UNDERSTOOD ONE WAS SUPPOSED TO CLEAN IT WITH V. HOT WATER EVERY WEEK.

Paninotogo Wed 15-Mar-17 01:56:12

I thought these machines hadn't been independently tested/approved? Didn't the FSA state that the water was not hot enough to kill bacteria in formula and that the rest of the water was only filtered? People who use these are not following guidelines correctly anyway, so why the TYPED OUTRAGE OVER INEVITABLE MOULD?

I checked mine earlier, used daily for 16 months and no mould in sight.

londonrach Wed 15-Mar-17 02:44:15

Checked both mine yeaterday, one second hand ...no sign of any mould. From what i remember lady who used this machine has admitted to using one of the water jug filters instead of the correct filters. Machine needs regularly cleaning. If youve seen this on fb there are 100s of people commenting saying their machine is ok. Think this is user mistake. However always worth checking and i did another cleaning cycle as a result anyway.

That's the problem though so many people put pictures up online saying oh my machines fine but you need to take the pipes off and look inside them and there was thin layers of mould

DoItTooJulia Wed 15-Mar-17 07:08:28

I think the op is trying to be helpful.

JellyWitch Wed 15-Mar-17 07:23:18

What's with all the shouting?

This isn't news - they've been having mould issues for at least 2 years that I know of (there was one in my birth group).

JonesyAndTheSalad Wed 15-Mar-17 07:39:00

What' with all the people repeatedly asking what's with all the shouting?

hmm

People love to jump on a poster and repeat the same mean crap as previous posters.

Sparklingbrook Wed 15-Mar-17 07:44:48

The OP was trying to alert people to a possible problem. Why is everyone getting arsey? confused

15 years too late for me but I quite like the sound of the machine.

minifingerz Wed 15-Mar-17 08:02:51

Have a look at the company's FB page - shocking number of units have mouldy growing in them. Not always obvious when you look at the piping from the outside, but can be seen when you push a cotton bud down inside them.

The food standards agency and First Steps Nutrition had already raised concerns about the safety and testing protocols for this product two years ago, but it seems that parents will overlook these concerns if a product has a good consumer rating and makes life with a baby a lot easier.

minifingerz Wed 15-Mar-17 08:03:37

Mould not mouldy. hmm

RachelRagged Wed 15-Mar-17 09:18:22

The prices of them shock

I have no idea why a good old fashioned boiling kettle is not good enough now . What a faff, and a waste of cash .

RachelRagged Wed 15-Mar-17 09:22:58

Paxillin

It don't even dispense the powder . I googled it and watched a video . It only dispenses water at a "correct temperature" .

minifingerz Wed 15-Mar-17 09:23:13

Rachel - I agree! Measure out half the liquid for the feed from a freshly boiled kettle and the other half from a bottle of cooled boiled water from the fridge. Add powder to hot liquid, shake, then add cooled boiled water. Job done.

paxillin Wed 15-Mar-17 09:24:10

grin I will invent that nappy machine to dispense 1 nappy and 4 wipes. At the correct temperature, naturally.
