Avent Steam Steriliser
Advantages: Quick cycle
Disadvantages: Is quite bulky
When expecting our first baby I knew I would be bottle feeding at some point and so we went out to buy a steriliser. We found this avent steam steriliser in Boots for £25.00 and as it seemed a bit of a bargain we decided to snap it up!
When I took it out of the box I was a bit disappointed as it was quite bulky and so it was slightly diffcult at trying to figure out where to put it! However once we found a place for it, it doesn't look too bad. It is white plastic with a clear plastic lid. It's all easy to wipe clean which is great!
The steriliser can hold 6 of the avent bottles however we had already bought Tommee Tippee bottles. This fit fine inside although it can only hold 5 of these bottles but still it was more then enough for us as our baby only fed from a bottle four times a day!
What I liked about this steriliser is that there is almost two 'shelves'. On the bottom you can place the actual bottles, then there is another just above these. Here I would usually place things such as teats, lids and dummy's. Anything that was a bit smaller.
To sterilise your bottles all what you have to do is put everything in, pour in 90ml of water, plug it in and switch it on and hey presto it sterilises in about 6-8 minutes which is quite quick!
Word of warning when it beeps to let you know it has finished I would leave it a few minutes to cool down as I can not tell you the amount of times I have burnt my hand on the bottles, they do get red hot in there!
We have used this steriliser for both my baby boy and now my baby girl and it is still going strong!
I would highly recommend this for its ease of use and the fact it does the job it is designed for!
