Sterilizing up to 4 Natural or Classic bottles at a time, it kills 99.9% of harmful germs. This lightweight, compact sterilizer is the perfect size for traveling. Stay-cool safety grips allow for safe handling and make it easy to sterilize breast pumps, bottles, cups and more while at home or traveling. The Microwave Steam Sterilizer uses the power of your microwave to create natural steam. Just add water and place in the microwave for 2 minutes. Safety clips keep the lid securely closed and side grips stay cooler for safe handling. At full capacity, the sterilizer holds up to 4 9 ounce or 2 11 ounce Philips AVENT Classic or Natural bottles. Its interior rack can also support 2 Philips AVENT Breast Pumps (non-electrical components only) and up to 4 breast milk storage cups and lids. You can also use it to sterilize pacifiers, non-metal utensils, and other microwave-safe baby items. Measuring 6.5 inches by 11 inches, the sterilizer fits in most microwave ovens, is BPA free and is backed by a 1-year limited warranty.

5.0 out of 5 stars Looks Good to me!
Reviewed in the United States on 7 June 2017
So far so good. I actually fit 5 bottles, (3 are only 2oz since I have a newborn about 1 week old, the other 2 are like 5oz), in there and like someone else posted, the steam should reach eveywhere, so I overload it a bit past recommendations. I have no testing lab to ensure it's killing bacteria, but man those items come out hot. I also have all the nipples, nipple screw ring caps (the cap the nipples go into to be screwed onto the bottle), and a pacifier or two. It fits in my microwave beautifully. My microwave is 1100 watts so I have to leave it for 4 minutes (as per instruction) max power. I haven't been burnt and no items have been damaged so far. I'll update if anything changes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Have with a Baby!
Reviewed in the United States on 3 May 2019
Whoever wrote the product description is clearly not a mom. You can fit a LOT more than 4 bottles in this bad boy. Unless you happen to be a parent or guardian who has it together more than I do, in that case leave extra empty space if you want. For reference this photo includes: 5x 5oz bottles, 3x nipples and rings, 5x caps, 4 nipple flanges, 4 pump connectors, 4 valves and membranes. It’s all sanitized in a total of 4 minutes (2 minutes in the microwave, 2 minutes to cool).

If you enjoy cramming your bottles and/or pump parts into those tiny microwave bags and doing it 3-4 times a day, cool. If you want to spend less time doing the most obnoxious chore of parenting an infant, you need this. Trust me. It’s a must have.
