I've had this for just over a week and wanted to give it a good try before reviewing. I'm very happy with this steam sterilizer. The size is great, you can fit a ton of stuff in here and having the 2 compartments to use allows you to set it up for whatever you're needing to sterilize. If you need to store on your counter it looks nice, sleek and clean. If it needs to be stored in a cupboard being able to take it apart into the 3 sections allows for easy storage (I put the smaller compartment on the base and store the bigger compartment beside it). The instructions were a bit overwhelming at first since it's all pictures but it makes sense if you look at them with the unit in front of you, I do wish the breakdown of what each symbol on the power button meant was at the begining of the instructions I feel that would have helped make it easier to understand right away. The 130ml of water needed is a rather odd number, its easy enough to measure out on the bottle but most bottles have the ounces marked so 120ml would be a better number for ease of use as it's more obviously marked on bottles. When the unit is running the sterilization setting its so quiet you forget it's even running. The dryer setting is a bit louder but still very quiet. And the time frame for running a sterilize and dry is very fast. I much prefer popping everything into this unit than taking the time to boil on the stove and end up dripping all over the counter when emptying. The only 3 things I've noticed that are negatives. The seals for my pump don't dry all the way inside the rim so I have to give them a quick dry when they come out. There will be a bit of residual water left in the unit so you need to dump it out and quickly wipe the 2 chambers and the base to dry it. And the included tongs are basically useless. They are far too small and if you're trying to get things out when it's hot your hand is basically in the unit. I prefer just using my normal kitchen tongs. But half the time I don't use tongs at all so it's really not a big negative. This unit is a massive time saver and is so easy to use. I feel it's worth every penny and would recommend it to anyone looking for a sterilizer with dry function.
As a mom of a newborn this sterilizer/dryer is absolutely amazing! So easy to use, I personally put it on the auto setting right after I put our daughter down for a nap with all her bottles so when she wakes up we're ready to feed again with clean bottles. The only thing I wish it was a smidge higher for the bottle area as we use Dr.Brown bottles and the 8oz bottles do not stand up within the sterilizer, it's literally only 1/4" too short so we just lean them inside instead of standing them straight up. I would definitely recommend this item for anyone with a baby, much easier than boiling bottles in a pot of water.
I got premium one and I have to say I really like it so far ... the only thing I didn’t like is that there is no manual how to use it or clean it!!! And just because it’s new on the market .. I couldn’t find many videos with user instructions... for that kinda price instructions should be attached!!!...after trying it out ..figured everything on my own .. I like it so far... drying only part take 40min tho.. AND plug in cord is pretty short but won’t be a problem if you have plug in on the wall behind your sterilizer..
I love my Philips Avent Premium Electric Steam Sterilizer with Dryer! This works exactly as you would expect any other electric steam sterilizer to work, but it also dries which is such a fantastic feature. So far my bottles have all been dry by the 20 minute mark. The sterilization time frame is a lot quicker than my previous electric sterilizer. And the storing compartment is quite large. It fits all sorts of different bottles. Not just advent. But can also be made smaller for soothers/etc. The design itself is simple but cute so it can sit on your counter without being a huge eyesore. Overall I have this a 5/5. I have only good things to say about it.
Got this premium one because it looks really modern and clean. It does the job well but I find the large compartment base a bit restricted with only 6 bottles hole. It kind of limited the things you can out in, as less you put it on the place without the holes but i feel like it doesn’t steam clean well enough. Also it is slanted to things can roll around. The top compartment has a lot of holes which I like however it is also slanted and the water gets trapped on the sides as you can see in the pictures.
It’s very easy to use but I think I will return it and get the Simbr one instead
This Avent sterilizer is supper easy to use ,easy to clean and works great! just fill the bottom with clean water and put in your baby’s bottles after they have been washed, fill top part with nipples,pacifiers, I even put in his little teething toys in it. And click the button. 10mins to sterilize or 40mins to sterilize and dry. Seems long but trust me you don’t even notice the time it takes. When it’s done the bottles and things on the top layer are nice and dry. Overall great product, works great , not to expensive compared to other sterilizers and I enjoy that you can use this not only for bottles but baby's little toys, cups or bowls unlike some other sterilizers that you can only put bottles in ! I wish there were more colour options for it since all my appliances in my kitchen are black but it’s okay no biggy. It seems a bit large at first but it’s what it has to be to fit your bottles, and you can always remove the bottom part to just use the top part.
I wasn't sure what to expect since I'd never used a sterilizer before, but the Philips Steam Sterilizer with Dryer is an incredible product!
The instructions are all pictures, but they're very straightforward on how to use it.
The sterilizer has three settings, which is extremely helpful if you want to just sterilize and let everything air-dry, just need to dry, or if you want it to sterilize AND dry.
I couldn't believe from start to finish, the sterilizing and drying process only took about 40 minutes! Throw it on during the day or even overnight to have everything ready for the next day, it's very convenient to be so quick instead of soaking in boiling water.
I do have to say that the larger compartment didn't fit my tall bottles (Dr. Browns) if they're standing straight up. I had to tip them over to be able to put on the top compartment, which made me worry that they weren't going to be sterilized as well...but to my surprise, it didn't make a difference at all. They came out sterilized and dry! The top compartment is perfect for bottle nipples, soothers, etc. I've used this for all of those things PLUS everything that needs to be cleaned with my breast pump.
Considering how many nooks and crannies water droplets have to hide in baby supplies, it concerned me that I was going to also have to air dry some things after the drying process. To my surprise and relief, there hasn't been one drop left behind after using this. Not one!
I can't say enough about this product and how much of a time-saver it is. But more importantly, you're confidence in its sterilizing capabilities as a parent will undeniably be met (and even surpassed)!
I really like this sterilizer!!! My favourite feature is that it dries everything as well as sterilizing it and it looks beautiful at my little baby station, it’s not an eyesore to have out all of the time. It’s also very quiet which I love because I’m not worried about it waking my baby while I’m cleaning bottles with him asleep nearby. I like that I can use any bottles in this and they still fit perfectly well. The design feature of having the top basket for the nipples and pacifiers is very nice. It’s very appealing. The only “complaint” I would have is that a full sterilization and dry cycle takes 30 mins but I can’t really complain since hanging my bottles to dry takes much longer. Overall, I would recommend this product!!
10/10 for quality!!! I really enjoy using this product. It does a great job at sterilizing and drying all of the parts of the bottles. It’s super quiet and doesn’t take up much counter space. The whole cycle takes only 40 mins. 10 mins of sterilizing and 30 to dry which is great if your in need of a bottle quick. You can choose to only sterilize and dry yourself for quicker bottle access and you can also just take one out and put the rest back in for only a drying a cycle. I love how you can customize it to your needs! It’s also great for sterilizing breast pump parts!! It’s got a separate area for bottles and a tray at the top for the nipples/nipple rings. It is a bit large to travel with and I find it easier to leave it home when we go away. I have gotten many compliments on how amazing this product is and I’ve only had it for less then a week!! It’s super modern looking and matches with the avent bottle warmer we use.
As a foster mom to newborns and bio mom to two of my own, I have used many different sterilizers over the years. This one is BY FAR superior to others I have used...It has a sleek design, looks great on the counter and takes up less space than the "rounder" models I have used in the past. I appreciated the easy way the components fit together and allow for different sizes of bottles and equipment to be sterilized in the machine. I do wish the directions included more written directions as they mainly rely on pictures, but it was still very easy to figure out how to set up and use the 3 cycles. I would definitely recommend this sterilizer., especially to those that want the drying feature. I have never had a sterilizer with a "dry" setting feature and this one works great.
