Rated 1 out of 5 by RBSS Would be great if it didn't leak every time it is used!
I have been using this product for approximately three months. It is easy to use and my Philips Avent bottles fit well inside. However it has started to leak badly after each use, the water seems to comes out of the gaps when it starts to cool down. It floods the worktop and I now have to stand it on a worktop saver and mop up each time. This is a shame as I have been very happy with my other Philips products.
I have also noticed that one bottle out of each batch is not as wet as the others after use. I am concerned that this bottle is not being sterilised correctly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Scotty94 It just keeps leaking and has cracked!
We got the steriliser for our 5 week old daughter... thinking that because of the different compartments it would be great... and the compartments are amazing.
What is less amazing is that everytime we sterilise the bottles we find that it leaks all over the side... not only do we have to wipe the bottles but the side too.
We also found a couple weeks in that a crack had appeared in the middle part. We have no idea why the crack is there. No-one has dropped it and we always hold it gently. It appeared for no reason at all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Penster1 Very easy to use but there is a slight flaw in the design
This steriliser is extremely easy to use and is great because you can fit a large amount of different sized bottles and other parts in it with ease e.g. From your breast pump, dummies etc. I would say though that the top section does not seem to fit snugly into the bottom section and there are numerous times that I have found my worktop covered in water when sterilisation is complete (it leaves awful lime scale marks all over my granite!). I cannot understand how so much water ends up on the worktop and believe it may have something to do with the design flaw. I would be extremely happy with the product if it wasn't for this irritating flaw and although I would recommend it I would possibly think twice and say it might be worth trying another brand if you can find one that is so versatile and easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by newmum1 Couldn't live without it
I’m really happy with this steriliser. I have been using it for three months now and couldn’t live without it. I use it for bottles, a breast pump and syringes for my little one and I never have any issues fitting everything in. I have a very small kitchen so the small base is very helpful as it doesn’t take up too much room. Even though I live in a hard water area I haven’t had any issues with the heat plate and I’ve found it easy to clean.

I have used an Avent steriliser with my 3 previous children with no problems. So my 4th baby I choose the Avent one again. It is awful, it leaks everywhere, my worktop is soaking each time. I took one back to the shop where i purchased it because I thought it may be just this one which was faulty, but no this one is just the same. The steriliser is now sat on a tea towel, which keeps getting saturated. I know from other review sites that i'm not the only one with this problem.

Rated 1 out of 5 by PattyMCD Now on my 3rd Steriliser!
The first one stopped working after one day. I took it back to the retailer who replaced it. The 2nd one stopped working last night after only using it for 5 weeks. With it being night time I couldn't take the steriliser back to the shop and get a replacement and instead of sitting with my feet up having been up since 4am, I had to go to the supermarket at 9pm and buy ready-made formula bottles with teats as I didn't have enough bottles sterilised to last until the morning.I took the steriliser back to the retailer today who replaced it yet again. I am very disappointed with Philips and this product as I had used the old version with my first daughter and had no problems at all. It's difficult enough dealing with a newborn baby without having to deal with faulty sterilisers. Finally, when is does actually work, it is very quick and simple to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Choccoliciousbaby Best steamer ever!!!
I love this steriliser!! This is clearly the best idea out there. Saves wasting time and drying out your hands with sterilising solutions. The steriliser is fast and efficient. The design means that this steriliser doesn't take up too much space on the worktop. This product is quite pricey next to other sterilisers, but I think that it is definitely worth paying that little bit more for quality and style :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by anotherdissatisfied Poor life expectancy
I bought two of these less than a year ago after our daughter was born. One was purchased in Prague and one in Aberdeen and have been used twice to three times a day when we are in either location. The one in Prague failed despite the fact its not been continuously used.
