Tested by mum Karen Collins for the M&B Awards 2016:

Would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

Yes I would recommend this product. The items are high quality and they look great. The products are innovative and very practical. The pots are handy, especially the different sizes and the ability to write on them is brilliant. The beaker is ergonomic and easy for baby to get to grips with. Everything you need to get started with weaning!

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

The crumb catcher is very good as it's wipe clean and actually catches food! The beaker is intuitive for baby and the pots are great as they can click together or be separated. The option to write on them is great too. A great set!!

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

I would prefer an option of a longer spoon.

This complete weaning set is all you will need if you decide to wean your baby traditionally i.e. creating food by making your own fruit and vegetable purées. The products all look great and have been well designed. Comfort for mum and baby has been given top priority.  The items are all durable and I love the fact that they're BPA free. A great value set!

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

The bowls are easy for me to hold having a hole for my thumb to fit into.  The bib is comfortable for baby.  The design has been given a lot of thought. The crumb catcher unclips from the top part of the bib.  The area of the bib that goes around my baby's neck is soft.  This set has made my life so much easier - there's everything I need to store my freshly prepared food, serve it to my baby, keep her clean and quench her thirst.  The recipes provided in the set are an added bonus. No one could go wrong with this set!

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

I would like to see this product with a grippy base.  This would mean that it wouldn't slide about the table but would grip the table.

This complete weaning set contains a very useful selection of products in a beautiful selection of colours. The beaker is a great shape and design which baby found very easy to use, the only drawback was fitting the beaker into the holder was tricky. The colour change spoons were a very good design and easy to eat from. The combination plastic/fabric bib is a great design where the food catcher can detach and become a carry pouch. The weaning pots can slot together for easy storage and are sizable enough to store food. The lids were sturdy enough to stay closed and not open when knocked. Finally, the bowls were deep enough and the attached handle made for very easy feeding. A very highly recommended product.

The design of each item meant they were perfect for their desired job as well as being designed for ease of use by baby. The products are all easy to clean and wash making life easier. The set comes with a marker pen for the weaning pots allowing me to write exactly what they contained on them so I didn't forget.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

There is nothing I would change about these products, they have been perfectly designed with baby and parent in mind. Perfect!

I loved this set. It's really got everything you need to start weaning. The packaging is bright and attractive. The recipe cards are fab and I love they are for a range of ages. The cubes are great for storing food and the pen is a nice touch. It really catches everything and folds away so tiny.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

Its a great range to take some of the stress out of weaning and something you need to buy.

I think I would change the cup, the handles were a bit difficult to use.

Tested by mum Shilo Moody for the M&B Awards 2016:

This really is the complete kit you need when you start weaning. It has everything from a bib, spoons, storage pots in different volumes to a beaker/cup and bowls. It’s really good value and would make a much appreciated gift to first time parents if you wanted something useful and different from baby clothes to give them. I love the travel bib that can be used for bottles or have the scoop attached for feeding and also the temperature sensitive spoons which are a great idea for nervous first time parents.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

By having everything all in one kit you don't need to worry that you've forgotten anything when you take that leap in to starting to wean your baby... Every piece of this kit is extremely useful in its own right so when combined with all the others it really does make it a top class weaning essential.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

I didn't like the beaker/cup and neither of my twins would drink from it so I would maybe incorporate a different beaker and add a separate cup.

This product is amazing value for money - you get everything you need to start baby's weaning journey. It's all really easy to clean, easy to use and feels like it will stand the test of time.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

Everything I needed for weaning was in one box and when you work out how much you would have spent on the same items from other brands, the Brother Max set offers amazing value for money. I loved the cup in particular - I won't need to buy another as this one adapts right up to my little one is able to use a cup.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

Absolutely nothing - I loved everything in this set.

Tested by mum Jo Simpson for the M&B Awards 2016:

Would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

I absolutely love this product as it is a true Complete Weaning Set – it comprises of 6 small (40ml) and 4 large pots (170ml) for freezing, awesome bib, two heat sensitive colour changing spoons, two easy hold bowls, a funky trainer cup and even some useful recipe cards. The bib is cloth but then it has a flexible and removable crumb catcher which doubles as a case for bib and cutlery, brilliant for containing the mess after feeding.  My little one loves the spoons and took straight to the trainer cup.  Some may be put off by the price but I think it is well worth every penny.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

I can't actually think of anything - it’s amazing.

Tested by mum Charlotte Foster for the M&B Awards 2016:

Would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

Absolutely! I loved it! Everything about the set is great. The spoons are a good size, the pots are great for small amounts of purees when starting to wean, and the larger pots good for larger meals or to take out as snack pots. They can go in the dishwasher and microwave. They are easy to stack in the fridge and freezer as they are cubes, therefore they do not easily fall over. The bib is also great - a pelican type bib, but with a removal washable part too. The bowls are a great size and are also easy to clean and can go in the microwave. All in all, a great piece of kit.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

As above! It is easy to fill and stack the pots. They can go in the microwave and you can feed directly from them. The spoons change colour if the food is too hot, which is great. The larger pots make great snack pots and fit nicely in bags for going out and about. I loved it!

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

I do not think there is anything I would change about this product. It was great for weaning my twins.

The Brother Max Complete Weaning set really is the only set you'll need for the first two stages.  It's been cleverly designed, as not only does it do everything you need it to, it's also got some natty little features that set it apart.  The set looks great - it's blue and green, which is perfect for my son, but I don't think I'd complain if I was using it with a girl.  

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

The thing that sets this set apart from the rest is the freezer pots.  The small ones are a bit on the small side, but the big ones are BRILLIANT - so much so that I'm considering replacing the rest of mine with Brother Max versions.  You don't feel the contents are going to spill everywhere, they plug together for easy filling, and there's a handy handle-type device built into the lid for easy opening.  There's also a silicon push-button on the bottom, to enable frozen food to be popped out easily.  Plus the set comes with a dry-wipe pen so you can write the contents on the side of the pot.  What a GREAT idea!

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

I'd only change a couple of things in very small ways - firstly, the part of the spoon that goes in baby's mouth seems very bulky.  There doesn't seem that much room left for food, plus the colour-changing aspect of the spoon was a bit useless. Also, this set is more than twice the price of others I've tried, so it's definitely on the expensive side. Do the extra features make up for the extra money?  I'm not convinced.
