Defective poorly designed - 1 month ago, Verified purchaser
I bought this at the end of October. I have only used this sterilizer a handful of times and I exclusively use distilled water for this machine and it has ruined all my baby bottles, breast pump parts and milk storage containers. The filiment at the bottom gets too hot and burns scorch marks on the hot plate leaving a greasy resudue all over everything you are trying to sterilize as well as a horrible burnt oder that can't be removed. Like others have stated, this needs to be pulled from shelves. It is defective and poorly designed. I don't have the box for it anymore but would like to return it and get my money back! This item isn't safe to use. It gets too hot and melts its own plastic.

Price and bottle quantity are excellent! This is my second sterilizer after my first one broke. I was hesitant because of some of the reviews. The price point is cheaper than my old phillip-advent and it holds one extra bottle. I chuckle at the comments about burnt water or brown water. My old $75 sterilizer did the same. Maybe others don't realize you actually need to clean sterilizers.

I honestly do not understand what every time I use the sterilizer it cause this at the bottom. I just fill it up with 4oz of water and not over filling it. I end up washing the bottles and the sterilizer which is more work. Is this normal ?

Okay but doesnt fit Dr. Brown's 8 oz

3 out of 5 stars
Heidi - 3 months ago, Verified purchaser
It gets the job done, but I do have to clean out the bottom with every use and it DOES NOT FIT Dr. Brown’s 8 oz bottles. Right now that is the only bottle and nipple my daughter is willing to take. Right now my daughter is using the 4 oz bottles, but we will have to make a Plan B when she starts eating larger portions. I do like that it works quickly and fits on my counter for daily use. Know your priorities before making a purchase.

this works fine , but the bottom element turns brown after 4-5 days of usage . possibly dried up milk is what everyone is experiencing . also it doesn't dry - so you'll need to leave it on a rack or hand dry bottles and inserts

I like that it sterilizes quickly (I have an old baby brezos that took 30mins!). The price was good too. Here comes the negative.. The part where you put the water turned brown. I would wipe after each use and ran a cycle with vinegar as the instructions suggested and still it’s burnt and sometimes gives a burnt smell. I’m wondering if I could return it.

After reading some of the reviews on it, I didn’t quite agree with most of them. Specifically the more negative reviews. I bought this on a last minute run because my son developed thrush and I was tired of stovetop boiling all his bottles, etc. it does an amazing job, especially when I use it 2-3 times a day! YES, it does get brown water inside the reservoir. Inside the box that it comes in, also has directions that state you will have to clean it (hence why I gave it 4 stars because it does get annoying sometimes) I clean/wipe it out after every use so I never have the “brown water problem”. Also; YES it does have condensation, it’s quite logical when you have very hot steam sterilizing bottles. After each use I don’t leave the lid closed, I prop it up to let it air dry to avoid mold. Lastly, YES this product does NOT dry the bottles, that is also mentioned on the box/inside the instructions as well. You will need to dry or air dry bottles, etc. Again, I use this about 2-3 times a day and I absolutely love it and had no issues! For how cheap it was and how well it gets the job done, I can’t quite complain about the cleaning or drying process of it!

1. After 3 cycles irregularly, this pile of junk was burning the element or whatever is being used to steam the bottles causing my son's bottles and whatever was being sterilized to smell like burnt firewood. 2. We had to throw away bottles and pacifiers because of this product. This product needs to be discontinued or pulled from Target. 3. Leaves so much condensation after EVERY cycle. Complete waste of $$
