This is extremely easy to set up and comes with a little holder for 6 bottles. Simply remove the base, add 130ml of water and you can chose to sterilise (10mins), dry (30mins) or auto does both for you at once (40mins). Make sure that you only add 130ml of water as will go into the air outlet.
When sterilising make sure you clean the items first, then place inside, you can notice the steam rising and creating a condensation on inside. Your items can be stored for up to 24hrs and remain sterile, just leave the lid on. It is very easy to clean after.
Perfect for mums on the go. Simply leave and the machine will do it for you. It will simply switch itself of when complete. It does require to be descaled every 4 weeks as per instructions.
● The difference between the two? Very little.
• The full cycle on this model takes 40 minutes to complete. The sterilising takes 10 minutes and the drying takes a further 30 minutes, the contents remaining sterile for24 hours.
• The iQ24 took 6 minutes to steam sterilise, but it didn't dry the contents. I can set it on a 24 hour cycle just like this one, or, sterilise the contents immediately in 6 minutes, which keeps them sterile for 6 hours.
● What's the Difference?
In 12 years and an increase in price the only difference with the premium model is the drying function, which is good if you plan to store the bottles away in a cupboard after the 40 minute cycle, on a daily basis.
But then why would you need a 24 hour steriliser?
I tend to leave the bottles in the steriliser on a perpetual 24 hour cycle ready to use at all times, which I reset daily with fresh water for steaming. So for me the drying function is not worth the extra cost of the premium machine over the Avent Advanced bottle steriliser which is currently about half the price.
● Is it for you?
If you like the idea of storing the dry and sterile equipment away from its enclosed sterile place within the Avent, into a cupboard amongst other items which may not be quite as sterile, then this could unit with the dryer is a neat idea.
But if like me, your intentions are to take full advantage of the 24 hour sterile conditions that this unit provides and you are more drawn to this than a dry bottle, then this may be for you with the added benefit of having a bone dry bottle. But to cut costs, you may want to consider Philips Avent's Advanced Steriliser. I've certainly relied on Avent all these years, and I won't hesitate in recommending their units wholeheartedly.
