Frequently Asked Questions
BABY BREZZA PRODUCTS
Baby Brezza Formula Pro/Formula Pro Advanced
How do I find the formula setting for my Formula Pro?
Use the formula settings finder which will help you find the setting for the formula you’re using. Click Here for Formula Pro Settings Finder. We have two Formula Pro models so please choose the one that you’re using. If you have any problems, you can contact Baby Brezza Customer Service for assistance.
My Baby Brezza Formula Pro is dispensing more formula than indicated on the ounce selector on the control panel. Why?
The ounce size on the Formula Pro control panel indicates water volume only. When powder is added to the water, the volume is increased, just like when you make a bottle by hand. The final volume of mixed formula is expected to be a little over the ounce amount indicated on the control panel. If the amount of formula is significantly higher than the ounces you are expecting, please contact us.
My Baby Brezza Formula Pro is dispensing less formula than indicated on the control panel. Why?
The most likely reason is that the mixing funnel is not properly cleaned, restricting the dispensing hole. Please clean and dry the mixing funnel, then try again. Also make sure you are using the correct setting for your brand/type of formula which tells the machine how much formula to dispense based on your formula's formula to water ratio.
How do I prevent mold from growing in the Baby Brezza Formula Pro?
As with any food preparation product or food storage container, proper maintenance and cleaning is required to make sure that your Baby Brezza Formula Pro stays clean. In addition to the regular cleaning recommended in the instruction manual, we recommend that care be taken when pouring formula powder into the powder container. After pouring powder into the container, check to make sure that no powder has spilled in the area next to the water tank, and clean any excess powder with a damp cloth. Also make sure that all parts of the powder container are completely dry before assembly. Mold should not grow in Formula Pro when properly cleaned and dried.

Do I need to clean the Baby Brezza Formula Pro/Formula Pro Advanced after every 4th bottle?
Yes it’s very important to clean the machine after every 4th bottle or when the clean funnel indicator light turns on. Unfortunately, formula can build up on the funnel during mixing because formula by nature likes to clump with water. If the formula builds up too much, it can affect how much formula drops from the powder container into the mixing funnel, affecting the machine’s accuracy. By removing the funnel after every 4th bottle and wiping the underside of the formula container, you can clean any formula build-up and ensure the machine works accurately. One suggestion to make cleaning easier is to purchase a spare funnel. That way, after every 4th bottle, you can remove the funnel that needs to be cleaned and insert your spare funnel that’s clean.

How do I clean the Steam Tank for my Baby Brezza One Step Baby Food Makers?

Put 1/3 cup white vinegar and 1/3 cup distilled water in machine and let sit overnight. Pour out vinegar and water solution (refer to user manual for proper emptying instructions). Refill Steam Tank with purified water, plug in machine and run “Steam” cycle for 10 minutes. Let Steam Tank cool and scrub with a cleaning brush if necessary.

Baby Brezza One Step Sterilizer and One Step Sterilizer-Dryers
Does the Baby Brezza Sterilizer-Dryer also wash bottles and accessories?
The Baby Brezza Sterilizer-Dryer sterilizes and dries baby products, but it does not wash them.
Should I rinse/clean products before sterilizing?
Yes, you should always rinse and clean all products before sterilizing to ensure they are properly sterilized.
What happens if I put unwashed bottles with milk residue in the Sterilizer-Dryer?
If you put unwashed bottles with milk residue in the sterilizer, these bottles will not be washed and properly sterilized. Also the milk inside the bottle will drip out and burn the heating plate, resulting in brown staining that is very difficult to clean.
What temperature does the water reach during sterilization?
The Baby Brezza sterilizer boils water to produce steam (212°F / 100°C) to naturally sterilize your baby products.
What type of water is recommended for use?
We recommend using distilled water to avoid any mineral scale build-up. You can use tap water or spring water, but more frequent cleaning of the heating plate will be required.
How often does the water need to be changed?
Because the Baby Brezza Sterilizer-Dryer dries contents with each cycle, you will need to add ½ cups or 120ml of water before each use.
How do I clean the Baby Brezza Sterilizer and what components are dishwasher-safe?
Please do not dishwash any of the sterilizer components. Please clean the lid and accessory tree in hot soapy water. You can use a damp cloth to clean the base and control console. To avoid mineral scale build up, wipe the heating plate with a soft moist cloth after each operation.
