The Philips AVENT Electric Steam Steriliser is £19.99 at Amazon – 56% less than it's usual £45.
Now we've had the pump for expressing milk, here are the bottles to feed your baby, and the means to clean them after. The Philips AVENT Electric Steam Steriliser from Amazon is simple and straightforward to use from the start. A touch-button system will sterilise your bottles and accessories in only eight minutes.
Steam sterilisation is quicker and safer than boiling bottles in a pan or in the microwave, since there's no boiling water to carry around.
This set comes with:
- 1 x Electric steam steriliser
- 1 x Tongs
- 1 x Measuring jug
- 2 x Extra-durable feeding bottles
- 2 x Extra-soft, newborn flow teats
- 1 x Bottle and teat brush
- 1 x Newborn soother
Reviewers have generally good things to say, stating such factors as ease of use, quick to set up and so on. The major criticism of it was that although it takes six AVENT bottles, if you have a mix of bottles - which most people do - it's not as simple. This reviewer says that other sterilsers can take various brands while this one only takes AVENT comfortably, and cleaning a breast pump in this one is 'a bit of a push'.
