Don't overlook this fabulous steriliser!!! I'm a first time parent and had to have every gadget going when the wee man was born...each piece of must have baby equipment was researched and priced and I was very happy with most purchases. When it came to a steriliser I chose a fancy 3-in-1 electric steam thingy and completely overlooked the 'old fashioned' cold water steriliser! Boy was I wrong! Not only is the cold water steriliser easy to use, easy to maintain and so effective but I also don't use my electric!! I've often wondered about the electric ones because when you open them and remove the bottles surely the others then aren't sterile anymore?? With Milton, the other bottles remain in the water, you simply lift them out when ready to use and change the water every 24 hours, no need to even rinse the bottles, they are ready to go! Doesn't matter where you are all you need is water and a sterilising tablet. One of the best things about the steriliser us that everything can go in, bottles, dummies, medicine syringe, spoons, baby cups, teethers, small toys, everything!! I've melted quite a few of these (rookie mistake!) in the steam steriliser! I have complete piece of mind with the cold water steriliser not only with bottles and dummies but with all sorts of baby feeding equipment! A really great buy and it doesn't cost the earth! Can't recommend enough! May 3, 2016
The Perfect Coldwater Sterilising Unit I am a breastfeeding mummy who also uses bottles. My breast pump has lots of bits and pieces to sterilse and this unit is large enough for the pump pieces and 4 bottles at the same time. Or 6 bottles if no pump bits. I love the handle on the unit which is great for carrying upstairs to my living room from the kitchen. I use it to also sterilse baby toys as well. I love the inside tray which keeps the items submerged underwater. Great if you are only sterilsing few bits at one time. It will keep items sterilsed for 24 hours, which is very handy for a busy mum! May 5, 2016
Couldn't live without it! So easy to use and you only change the water every 24hrs! All day,I just chuck things in and 15 minutes later o know it's safe to hand to my baby. I used to use a microwave steriliser but I much prefer cold water! How I coped before I do not know. May 12, 2016
