Rated 4 out of 5 by daveh182 Excellent option
This is a great product, you do need a larger microwave to fit it in but this works really well.
I have used electric machines which always break so to use a microwave version which does the same job in half the time to an amazing standard is perfect.
They go well with the designed bottles by Phillips which are a great size for new born and infants.
They also come in at a great price point compared to others which make them a great option for anyone in the market for them.
The item is small enough that would make it easy for travel purposes on the go or a family holiday.
A must buy for any parent for at home or at a grandparents house for vists. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bsutton Excellent Build, but may not fit
This is an excellent built product with an easy to use and straight forward instructions, we used the product as the main steriliser and have found it to be a great alternative to an electric steriliser. The issue we do have with it is we have had to remove the glass plate from the microwave and then it was a tight fit.
When removing from the microwave the plastic was not hot and didn't burn my hands as i have had with previous microwave sterilisers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by adventuresofmummyandme Easy to use, great for travelling
I was surprised at how easy this machine is to use. I have previously been using an electric model by a different brand, and whilst I loved it, there are a few features this model has over the electric which I found to be a real benefit.
I liked the fact that the sterilise time is only 4 minutes (varies +/- 2 mins depending on microwave power). It's also very simple to use, only needing to add water alongside the bottles and then pop into the microwave. So eliminating the need to select appropriate sterilising cycles or complicated options.
A few other positives are that it is great for travelling - So as long as wherever you're going has a microwave, you can easily sterilise your baby's bottles and other small items as needed. It's very easy to clean, with only three pieces, and no wires to try and work around when washing.
One negative I did find however was that the machine is clearly made to only fit Avent bottles. Which OK I get that it's an Avent product, but my other branded model is compatible with any type of bottle, so I could easily alternate between a couple of different cups and bottles we have in the house without needing to worry about whether they'd fit in the steriliser. With this model, of the four different non-Avent bottles I have at home, only one style fit inside well - All others were either too tall or they fell over when trying to move it to the microwave as they don't balance well inside the unit. There is a small circle lip meant for the bottles to sit in, which allows Avent bottles to be supported standing up - But non-Avent models are either too big or too small for this lip, and therefore are unbalanced whilst inside the unit. This meant that I could only sterilise two or three bottles at a time. Whereas my electric model could sterilise 6 bottles plus additional bits such as dummies and medicine spoons.
Finally, I found that whilst the unit fit fine in my family sized microwave, it did not fit in my parents smaller microwave. And therefore couldn't be used. So you do need to have a large microwave in order to fit this in due to the height.
In summary, a good model for everyday use. Easy to clean, and great for travelling. But possibly not suitable if you're using non-Avent bottles, or have a small microwave at home.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Xenomania Best steriliser
I have been using this steriliser for around a week now and I love it. I had an electric one before, I definitely prefer this one. It is easy to use and easy to clean.
I did however have to purchase a bigger microwave which wasn't a problem as I needed a bigger one anyway but be aware that if you have a tiny one like I did it won't fit.
The steriliser comes in a box with instructions and a tounge which you use to take the hot equipment out of the steriliser once it's finished.
It's compatible with both the natural and classic bottles and with the Avent breast pumps (it will fit up to 4 bottles and 2 breast pumps!)
Easy to use and quick and within 2-6 minutes in the microwave and your babies things are sterile up to 24 hours.
This item has really helped me to combine breast and bottle feeding which helps me to spend time with my baby and my toddler. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by Brownplate A very easy to use and effective steriliser
This sterilising kit is everything that is needed in preparation for your new arrival. The steriliser itself is very easy to use and is very quick if needed in a rush. Another great advantage is this is very portable if staying with friends or family. All you need is a microwave and water which is also a big plus if concerned about traditional chemical sterilising. The only down side that I could see is it is quite large so I would check the dimensions of your microwave before purchasing. But overall I would thoroughly recommend this product.

This is a great steriliser as its easy to use and the bottles can be ready within a short time. I liked how compact it was, easy to take with me when i stayed over at mums. It can fit four bottles in it which is great as I put them all in if i run out it doesnt take long for them to be ready. Really good product thats been great for me and my baby.

Excellent product. Allows easy fitting of 4 bottles and all additional parts of the bottles aswell. Fully sterilised within 2 minutes. Fits perfectly in almost any microwave (tried in several types). Easy to clean. Would recommend.
