Lillypots Weaning Pan Review

Lillypots… at little surprise!!!

Here at Baby-a we were lucky enough to test Lillypots a new product to help with the weaning process. Lillypots is a pan with three compartments for heating frozen purées. We liked the look of the pan and were happy to be chosen for Ronnie to give us his verdict!


Lillypots was created by dad Tam Rodwell when …”Tam realised fairly quickly that there wasn’t any product on the market that could defrost and heat these tiny portions of food separately whilst not compromising the nutritional value and avoiding the use of plastics.”


With this in mind we set about using the pan. On first inspection we were surprised at how light and slim it was. There were three little indentations which reminded us of a poached egg pan! It fitted nicely over our sauce pan without any gaps or wobbling. We filled the pan as instructed with hot water from the kettle and put the Lillypot on top, popped on our frozen purées and let them warm through on the stove.


It was good to have the option to give Ronnie a mixture of veg and it didn’t seem too long for the food to heat… so much so that we used it without further boiling. With also having Sydney running about we found that filling the saucepan with boiled water from the kettle was enough, that way other food could be prepared and served for the the rest of the family without the risk of a boiling pan being left.


When comparing Sydney and Ronnie when weaning we found that Sydney took really well to puréed food, he used to open his mouth to most things and he was a really easy baby to wean. With Ronnie we have had a completely different experience. He quickly became bored with purées and constantly wanted to eat food out of his hands, it seemed like we had a baby led weaner. We gave him cooked veg and pieces of fruit to hold and he took to it really well.


We found that he loved egg and when thinking of different ways to serve it that is when the Lillypot came back into play . Thinking of poached eggs we managed to cook mini omelettes! \They were perfect for Ronnie as they were tasty and the right size for him to nibble on.


We filled the saucepan with boiling water, popped on the Lillypot, put a little butter in then poured in a mixture of cheese and egg. We let the pan boil a little and in no time at all the mini omelettes were cooked. We scooped them out ,let them cool and served them to Ronnie. He was very excited and tucked in …they were at hit!


The Lillypot certainly was a surprise for us ,with Ronnie giving up on purée we felt that we had come to the end of he road but it was nice to be able to use it for a different type of weaning with the perfect portion sizes.


Thank you Lillypots for letting us test your product. We think it is a marvelous idea and a great way to warm food for all of those hungry babies out there!
