Your Lillypot is designed to fit over an existing saucepan in your cupboard, much like a lid. To use, bring approximately 5cm of water to the boil in a pan and place the Lillypot on top. The Lillypot will rest comfortably on the rim. Drop your frozen ingredients into the round indentations in the Lillypot. The heat from below will gently defrost and warm the food until it is ready to serve.
Why Should we use Lillypots?
Much of the nutritional value from food may be lost by zapping it in a microwave. With the Lillypot, food is gently and quickly warmed with steam without the use of microwaves or potentially harmful plastics, meaning nutrition is not compromised and baby gets all the goodness. Also, by heating different food in the 3 separate indentations you will be able to tell your baby’s taste preferences from day 1 of weaning and slowly take the guesswork out of mealtimes.
Will Lillypots fit my saucepan?
Yes, we have designed Lillypots to fit comfortably over a range of saucepans in the mid size range. Most kitchen cupboards usually contain at least one pan that will fit the Lillypot, but to be specific, any pan from 14cm-18cm in diameter will work perfectly.
You can feed your baby straight from Lillypots but be sure to keep the Lillypot well out of baby’s reach. Dispense the warm food into a serving bowl if baby likes to play with his food. NEVER let baby be able to reach the Lillypot as the surface will remain hot for some time. And always make sure to test the temperature of the food before giving it to baby, as you would with any other method you use to heat food.
