I was approached by Lillypots to do a review of their cookware after I shared my post about Mumi&Bubi, because they believe the two products would work great together. All opinions in this post are my own.
What is Lillpots? Lillypots is stainless steel cookware that fits right over your pot on your stove to defrost and heat up baby food safely, without using a microwave. It is Teflon free, non-toxic, hygienic, and easy to clean. It is dishwasher safe, but it’s really easy to clean if you do it right after heating the food up; it just rinses right off.
All you do is bring approximately 5 cm of water to a boil in your pot and place your Lillypots on top, like a lid. You place one ounce of frozen food in each mini pot and let it defrost. The steam from below will defrost and heat up baby’s food! It only takes about 3-5 minutes to get the food ready, depending on how much you put on there and the type of stove you are using (gas vs electric.)
Always be sure to test the food before giving it to the baby to eat, because it could be very hot. Never let the baby touch Lillypots after it’s been used to heat up the food, either, because it will be hot to the touch. When the food is ready, just scoop it out into your bowl with a spoon. You don’t want to try to pour the food from the Lillypots, because it will make a big mess (yes, I know first hand!) I love this easy method to heat up the food for my baby. I especially love knowing that the food that I spent all that time preparing will still hold it’s nutritional value, because it’s not being microwaved!
You can buy Lillypots for $29.99 (shipping and handling is included). Connect with Lillypots: Website | Twitter | Facebook
Did you make baby food for your baby? How did you heat it up? What was baby’s favorite food?
My daughter really liked apples as a baby, and she still does. 🙂
Theresa @ Faith and Family Reviews says
I like the sound (and look) of this! I love that’s it’s used on the stove top instead of in the microwave.
Oh thanks 🙂
Liz Mays says
I never made my own baby food. I never really thought about it, crazy huh? For the grandbabies one day, I’ll try something like this!
Robin (Masshole Mommy) says
That is awesome. I think I might get that for my sister in law who just had a baby!
Thanks I’m glad you like it 😉

This would make a great baby shower gift. I need a gift.
Chelley @ A is For Adelaide says
Awesome! I need to get one of these before my arrival!
Tammi @ My Organized Chaos says
What a clever idea, sending this to a friend. She’d love to read this!
I miss my kids being babies. When they were little I would smash up foods, especially fruit to feed them instead of buying it in jars. But I never made all of their food. I wish I did.
I love this product. Where was it when I had babies?
Marina @ Mommy Snippets says
This is so cool. I would have to agree that this would be an awesome baby shower gift.
Nicole B says
I miss making my baby food! This looks like a useful tool.
This looks like such an easy way to heat up baby food! I’ll be getting one for the next new mom I know!
Oh cool, these remind me of the steam a double boiler uses to heat things up. Way safer than a microwave.
Ann Bacciaglia says
What a fantastic idea for a baby shower gift. The photos of your daughter are priceless!
That’s such a great gadget! I don’t have kids, but if I did, I’d use it!
I wish I’d had this when my daughter was a baby. It’s a great way to save money and make sure your baby’s food has a fresh flavor instead of a microwaved one.
That’s an ingenious invention. This seems like it would make preparing meals quick and tasty for the tots.
i made my kids’ food and hated to microwave it. HATED to. this s fabulous!
Such a great idea! I hate to use the microwave, especially for the baby’s food.
This is such a great idea. Love the double-boiler effect of the tray, and the little divots.
This is a great idea. I don’t like using the microwave either, but I need to heat baby’s food quickly too. I would use this all the time.
This is a great idea! Quick, easy and way better than the micro!
Amber Louise Edwards says
Now this is really cool! I hate having to pop the kiddos food in the microwave!
This is soo awesome. Thanks for sharing. I have a toddler at home so I definitely need all these tips.
Mama to 5 BLessings says
What a cute, love the last picture! What a great gadget!
What a great idea and an easy way to warm food! There’s always another great idea to come up with and yet this one is so simple!
I wish I had made my own baby food for my son when he was a baby. And that last picture is priceless. 🙂
vanessa: thequeenofswag says
What a great tool! I wish they had this around when my kid was a baby!
Sadly, I don’t have any kids in baby food anymore 🙁 What a great product for those of us who don’t like to use a microwave!
This is a great way to feed the baby healthy food.
Penelope Guzman says
This is such a neat idea. I love it. Thanks for telling us about it.
Kelsey APley says
That is pretty neat, I love to see all the fun products people invent to make life easier! This is one for all the mama’s and daddy’s out there!
They have such new and unique products for those that like to make their own baby food.
She’s beautiful! I love the idea of this! Maybe for next baby!
I don’t want to admit how much baby food I’ve eaten testing it to see if the temperature was right. The microwave creates hot pockets!
They sure have come a long way with baby food products, how neat! I love that last photo, no more pictures, please! LOL

I never made home made baby food when my kids were little, but it sure is so much better for them. Something like this would make a good gift for my niece who is expecting.
