Easy to use, quick, and holds a good amount of bottle and pump parts! I throw it in the dishwasher to clean it. It’s bulky when not in use, but I keep it on top of the fridge so it’s out of the way. If you briskly shake the moisture off each item before putting them on a bottle tree or bottle grass or whathaveyou to dry, the items dry much quicker.

Not happy - 2 years ago
I find this useless and wasteful. Simply boil water and slowly sink each bottle or any part of the bottle for a quick boil bath. Take out and let air dry on mat or napkins. I mean microwave and put radiation onto babies bottles?

We used this sterilizer for our first daughter. The sterilizer really helped us feel like we were killing all the germs and bacteria on the bottles and was super easy to use. Had no issues with melting nipples or damaging bottles. Will be using again for baby #2.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Like that it can hold a high capacity of bottles, nipples and caps. After running through the microwave in 2 mins, I have nearly all my bottles and parts sterilized. i have too many bottles and parts to fit all at once so I have to fill it and run it the microwave twice.

I was excited about this but I hardly use it now. Its so big and bulky and only fits Avent bottles. I have used other bottles but they tend to fall over if they don't fit the spaces for the avent bottles. Also, after using, the bottles stay wet so I have to dry them anyway. Might as well just handwash them all. Pretty bummed.

Makes sterilizing SO easy and quick. I spent a lot of time researching options and chose this because it’s not only cheaper, but also much quicker than many of the electric ones. With needing to sterilize so often, it made the most sense. I use it for everything - bottle pieces, Elvie pump pieces, Spectra S2 pump/bottles pieces, pacifiers, etc. Definitely prefer this over boiling - some of the parts I have can be difficult to get the boiling water out of with tongs, so burning my skin was a concern with regular boiling, but this 100% negates the issue when used properly.

This is an awesome time saver! I’m honestly too lazy to boil everything to sterilize it and felt that using the microwave sterilizing pouches to be super wasteful as they don’t hold near as much as this. This works wonderful with my bottles (Mam) and pump parts! I would recommending to any new mom!
