I loved the "safety feature" these spoons offered by turning white when the baby food is too hot. Like most moms, I microwave the baby's frozen foods to warm them up and want to be careful about getting things the right temperature.

Unfortunately, the spoons stained after only one use with a colored food. I used a spoon to serve my baby carrots -- plain mashed carrots -- and the spoon was permanently stained orange after that. It doesn't detract from the spoons' heat safety feature, of course, but it does make the spoons look kind of cheap and gross.

Also, it might be my imagination, but it seems like the spoons are not equally sensitive to heat. Some of the spoons seemed to turn white when the food is just a little too warm and others seemed to turn white only when the food was scorching hot. I still find myself touching each spoonful of food to my own lip before giving it to the baby.

I purchased these spoons and the plastic Nuby spoons and these are far superior. Both have the feature that changes color if the food is too hot, but I don't really use that because I'm just not going to put something in my baby's mouth that has been heated without testing it myself first. The thing that sets these apart is the shape of the actual bowl of the spoon. It is very shallow which allows my little guy to learn to get all of the food off of the spoon with each bite. The others had a bowl that was way to deep and made it hard to get any food from the spoon into his mouth. The shape of the tip of the spoon is also perfect for getting the last little bit of food out of a small crevice in the container. It fits perfectly in his mouth and the handle is comfortable for me to hold. I also really like that the spoon is wrapped so that it isn't just metal when the baby bites down. I have been using these spoons for over a month now and haven't had any issues at all with staining. I just put them in the silverware rack in my dishwasher and they come out good as new every time. They are great!

I contacted the manufacturer because I wanted to know if these spoons are BPA and phthalate free, and their reply was, "The Munchkin White Hot Safety Spoons are not 100% BPA free yet; they are Phthalate free." That's not good enough. Don't buy these spoons.

I first used the Munchkin White Hot Safety Spoons at my daughter's home when feeding her son. I really liked the shallow spoon bowl which made it much easier for her little one to learn to eat from a spoon. Because he was used to sucking his bottle, the baby spoons with deeper bowls proved to be very frustrating for both baby and adult. It took awhile for him to get the technique associated with spoon-feeding, but the shallow bowl on the Munchkin spoon was very conducive to easing his transition to eating solid foods. We do pay attention to the color change and wait until the spoon stays its original color before feeding heated foods.

There has been no problem with the spoons staining, even the lighter colors clean up very nicely in the dishwasher - top shelf, of course. The spoons have been used for broccoli, prunes, yellow squash, green peas and blueberries, so if they were going to stain these foods would have done the trick. Of course, we do rinse them before putting them in the dishwasher, so that may help prevent staining.

I would urge those who need baby spoons to consider the Munchkin White Hot Safety Spoon for its helping transition your little one to solid foods.

The idea of being able to detect if food is too hot for baby without testing it is excellent but the delivery is pretty poor. Even if something is mildly lukewarm, these spoons turn white and say it's hot, so they aren't reliable temperature gauges; therefore, I still have to put food to my lips to test it. The heat detection isn't consistent across spoons from the same package either. Testing the same bowl of food with 3 spoons from the package, some spoons turn whiter than others.

We used these for several months and I even hand washed them to preserve them and they still stain and become discolored around the edges of the spoon! This makes them look cheap and dirty. Also, the part of the spoon where the baby eats from is made of hard plastic and doesn't scrape the bowl too well, leaving food behind. If this part was made of rubber, it would scrape much better.

I wouldn't recommend these at all. We switched to the Gerber Graduates BPA Free 6 Pack Soft Bite Infant Spoon and are much happier with them. They don't indicate temperature of the food (these Munchkin spoons don't either!) but they are much better quality.

The spoon tip turns white if the food could be described as anything warmer than luke warm. For beginner babies that is an appropriate temperature. However, because the spoon is so sensitive, we ended up feeling it with our hands every time anyway.

I love that these change colors! It's so fun. Unfortunately after two weeks of using and washing I have noticed a marked change in their ability to turn white. Also the pink one is now discolored from an encounter with hot sweet potatoes.

Initially I was very pleased with these spoons. They do turn white when food is too warm (it doesn't even have to be hot), which is a nice feature, but as reviewed elsewhere, I always test the food myself anyway, just to be sure I don't burn my baby's mouth.
The tips are soft and have a great "pointy" tip, which is nice for digging into avocado or scraping food off cheeks.
However, the reason I only gave 3 stars is becuse the handle of the spoon is stainless steel/metal, and my baby continually tries to grab the spoon to feed himself. What happens is that he grips the metal and then getting him to let go is a little tug-o-war...and I think the metal is more likely to hurt his hand. I never pull hard, but basically, end up either waiting for him to release the spoon, or opening each finger individually.
I have a plastic handle spoon and feel more comfortable tugging on that for him to release, as it won't cut into his hand anywhere.
The colors in the 4-pack are not gender specific, which I actually don't mind, however, they are not as depicted in the image on Amazon. The colors are less saturated in real life. Also, the two pink-ish spoons are very similar in color. I use those two for orange colored food, as the staining, which does happen, is less apparent. Eventually, I'll probably have an orange spoon, instead of pink...fine by me.

I received one package of these spoons at a baby shower and decided to buy another pack because with just four it seemed like I was always running out.
I like these spoons because they hold just the right amount of food for my 7 month old. She seems to like the texture of them, and sometimes enjoys biting them a bit (but her teeth have not left any marks). I don't worry about the white indicator as we don't really heat food anyway. I did notice another reviewer said that after putting them thru the dishwasher they stayed white- I've run these thru the dishwasher many times and while it does seem some of the "gloss" of the spoon has worn off (I was able to compare the new to the old when these arrived), they didn't stay white or anything and when I run them under hot water in the sink they turn white. If you open the dishwasher right away they will be white til they cool down.
All in all, decent - they stain a bit, but it has come off in the dishwasher (tomatoes mainly). I'd recommend. I deducted one star b/c they do look a bit dingy after all the use and washing, not as bright and pretty but they still do the job.
