  • Fits bottles, nipples, and pumping parts great. Easy to use. Sep 25, 2019

    Love that to sterilize the bottles I do not have to run my dishwasher every day. Pre-wash to clean off any milk particles, sterilize pacifiers at the same time and with energy efficiency. Aug 23, 2019

  • This is a great way to sterilize my bottles. It fits a decent amount of bottles and nipples and gets everything very hot. Easy to use as well. Jul 29, 2019

  • Very easy to use, but I HATE how the bottles/pump parts take forever to dry. Jul 22, 2019

    LOVE this! Easy to use, clean, and store! A must have for multiples when you have a million bottles to clean. Great solution for a quick clean. Self explanatory and effective. Jul 13, 2019

  • Makes sterilizing our bottles a breeze. It's simple to use and quite inexpensive too. A definite must for Avent bottle users. Jul 05, 2019

  • Got so much use since we have well water to ensure the bottles were clean and sterilized before every use. Jun 26, 2019

  • I use this sterilizer when I am traveling. It is super convenient and can be used anywhere where there is a microwave. Jun 25, 2019

  • I like that one, hace lot of room to put many bottles Apr 26, 2019

  • I used this once to sterilize everything before baby came. Once he was here, there was no time for this extra step after washing. I didn't like it, but it's a good option if you keep up w/ sterilize Apr 12, 2019

  • We use this daily and love it! We take bottles out of the dishwasher and put into this thing to sterilize it. It’s so convenient and I highly recommend for sterilization! Apr 03, 2019

  • I realized quickly a pot with boiling water is all I needed to sterilize bottles. Totally unnecessary! Mar 17, 2019

  • I used this once. Skip it and just boil new bottles. Mar 15, 2019

  • Really large and easy to use. It just takes about 5 minutes in the microwave to get bottles and other things baby puts in the mouth clean and sterile. Mar 02, 2019

  • I returned this product as it said it would fit the Dr. Browns bottles but unfortunately it did not. Feb 26, 2019

  • Great sterilizer. Does exactly what I needed and very spacious Feb 22, 2019

  • Works well! Easy to use, easy to clean and can be used for other brands too. I use it for sterilizing my Medela parts and Dr.Browns bottles. Jan 24, 2019

  • The directions are a little tedious to follow, but I refused to pay for an automatic machine. It does the job and I'm satisfied I didn't pay an arm and a leg. Jan 12, 2019

  • Works great sterilizing bottles in a quick 2 minutes making it fast and easy to clean bottles. Love that it fits bottles other than Avent. Not easy to take when traveling as its not very compact. Jan 07, 2019

    • KITTANNING, Pennsylvania

    very easy to use Jan 02, 2019

    Holds lots of bottles, bottle parts, pump parts and works great! Oct 19, 2018

  • Don’t really love the whole microwave thing Oct 14, 2018

  • It is so versitile! A friend told me this was a must-have item, and she was right. I used it for sterilizing bottles and pump parts with baby #1 and will use it again soon for baby #2. Aug 29, 2018

    Perfect with avent natural bottles. There are spots for 4 bottles, but I can easily fit 6 of the 4 oz bottles with the nipples and collars. Also perfect to sterilize pump parks, pacifiers, anything! Aug 25, 2018

  • This works well and holds a lot of items. However, I didn't end up using it as much as I expected due to inconvenience. Jul 20, 2018

    You can steam only a few bottles at a time. I rather just get a big pot and boil the bottles instead. Jul 18, 2018

  • Nice and quick option rather than boiling them nightly. However, bottles do not dry quickly even on drying over night. Condensation is bothersome as it may grow more bacteria. Jul 03, 2018

    We do alot of travel and this thing is a life saver. Highly recommend it. Jul 03, 2018

    • elkins park, Pennsylvania

    I used this for my oldest with her doctor brown bottles. I found it very easy to use. It sure did beat having wait for water to boil and then wait a few more minutes for the bottles to be cleaned! May 03, 2018

    • Studio City, California

    I use this everyday, multiple times a day for bottles, pacifiers, and pump parts. It’s quick and simple and makes life way easier than boiling on the stove. A must have! Apr 20, 2018

    Easy and quick to use. Apr 11, 2018

  • Makes sterilizing bottles and breast pumping parts super fast and easy! Apr 04, 2018

  • Easy to use and clean. Makes it easy to sterilize bottles. We used it once a day as soon as we started using bottles and it's held up very well. Feb 26, 2018

  • This has lasted me through three kids spanning 7 years and still going strong. So easy to use. Well made. Dries quickly. I never used the “tongs” it came with. Just remove bottle/pump parts carefully Feb 17, 2018
