i bought this sterilizer because i wanted to avoid the ones in which you had to use a microwave because they take longer and i didnt want to have to depend on my dishwasher all the time. I wanted something quick, simple, and light on the wallet. This system only takes 8 minutes until finish, is easy to load, and very quiet. I thought it would take up more space than it actually does, which is a plus because i dont have much counter space. Cleaning is an easy process as well and it holds 6 bottles (small and large), bottle caps, other bottle accessories, pacifiers and i even put some my breast pump parts in there. For example, one can put six large bottles in the bottom white part and the blue top part can hold the nipples and the nipple rings. I align the nipples where one is sitting on the other so i can fit six in there along with the nipple rings. When i sterilize my breast pump parts, i will only put a few bottles in and the rest of the space is for the breast pump pieces. A good thing about this is that there is room to play around with what parts you have to sterilize. The only negative things is that there is a lot of steam released while processing so i move it from under my cabinets until its done. Overall, I would recommend this to others.
Great sterilizer... holds a lot of items and has a quick turn around time which is great when you need a sterilized bottle asap. My only concern is that the bottom burns and gives off a burnt marshmallow type of smell. I've tried scrubbing the burn but it is persistent.
