GREAT: First time mom Brittany had to sterilize EVERYTHING! When a more experienced mom told me this wasn’t necessary, I didn’t care – to me it was crucial. This went for bottles, pacifiers, toys, breast pump pieces – you name it I was sterilizing it. You can imagine because of this I have tried a lot of different sterilizers. My issue with the majority of sterilizers is that they don’t dry the bottles. The sterilization process finishes and you are left with damp and sometimes just downright wet bottles and then what do you do? I thought there had to be something better for me and I was right. This thing is AMAZING! I can’t tell you how obsessed first time mom Brittany was with it. Not only does it sterilize your bottles but it also dries them leaving you with a pristine clean. You don’t have to wait until the process is complete as the device will automatically switch off when the cycle selected has been completed. I would put the bottles in at night and when I got up in the morning I had gorgeously clean and perfect bottles. The device removes 99.9% of germs and stay sterile for up to 24 hours or when you open the lid so you don’t have to be there when the cycle finishes. You can sterilize up to 6 bottles at a time no matter what size or material, plus accessories such as pacifiers and breast pump parts. That is another thing I used this for ALL.THE.TIME, sterilizing my breast pump parts. When I was exclusively pumping with Christian this was a life saver as it allowed me to sterilize the parts each night without taking up any of my time – just place the parts in and go to bed.
GOOD: The device is incredibly easy to use with a control panel on the front to select the desired cycle. The device uses chemical free, natural steam to sterilize in only 8 minutes and automatically switches to drying mode, if selected, for your choice of a 30, 45 or 60 minute drying cycle. This is a 4 in 1 sterilizer and dryer as you can only sterilizer, sterilize and dry, only dry or use as a storage system. The sterilizer is made of 100% BPA free components so both mom and baby can be happy.
BAD: If there is milk residue, soap residue or other contaminates on the items being sterilized this can make the water more viscous and spill out from the container and onto the countertop. The first couple times I didn’t understand why it was happening, I just assumed it was leaking and broken which was very annoying. Once I did a little bit of research and realized the device wasn’t broken I rarely had the problem anymore. The other issue I encountered was it seemed to rust a little on the bottom even though I used distilled water every time. After a little bit of work I was able to get the rust off and if I remembered to wipe down after each use I didn’t really have this probably as much.
UGLY: I don’t have anything ugly to say about this but do realize that the price is a little on the high side; however, compared to other sterilizers that have the dry function this one is a deal. For first time mom Brittany this was such an amazing product to have and saved me so much time and anxiety.

To be completely transparent, second time mom Brittany hasn’t taken this out of the box. Think that is the difference between a first time and second time mom, Thomas hasn’t had a single thing sterilized #secondkidproblems. With that being said it doesn’t take away from how much I loved this product when sterilization was important to me and how great it was for me at that time.
