Which bottle steriliser is the best?


Ive been looking at reviews online and totally confused thought I'd ask real life Mums before i go spending the money on one!

Can you recommend a good?

oh my god ours is AMAZING!!! its the tommee tippee microwave one, all you do is put a little water in the bottom and shove it on full power for 8 minutes!!! at just over a tenner for the steriliser, a soother, a bottle and a bottle brush and tongs, its very affordable too! here the link:

EDIT: i would say though that the TT bottles have a much wider neck than most of the other bottles out there, and the bit in the steriliser is the right size for these, so i dont know how it would work if u arent going to be using tt bottles? i found the tt's are brilliant though.

we have the avent microwave one and as Nuke said it is so much easier just sticking the water in the bottom of it and whacking it in the microwave on full power for a few mins!
Also when it's not in use you can keep it in the microwave to store it so if you don't have much work surface space or a big kitchen it saves having another appliance out on the side. Remember the bigger ones need a power supply too so make sure you'll have enough sockets as plugging and unplugging the steriliser/kettle/toaster is not something you'll have time or the patience for with a newborn!!!

I'd decide first which make of bottles you are going to use as I don't think different brands are interchangeable and the TT ones are a completely different shape to the avent ones. hth

we have the tommee tippee electric steraliser, its a good one but the only thing is, it says it fits 6 TT bottles in, which it doesnt, its a tight squeeze and its annoying that they say it can fit 6 in. cos the bottles have a wide neck as said above.
so to be honest its a good enough steraliser but if i was to choose again i wouldnt get the eletric one from tommee tippee.
but the bottles and products are fantastic! xx

I've got the TT Electric, and have no problem fitting 6 Dr Browns bottles in, it only takes 4 minutes for a cycle which is a godsend when time is so precious!

i have an event steam sterilizer which i have had since my daughter, you can get 6 avent bottles in it, however with my son i use the Tommie tipee bottles now as i prefer them and i cant get 5 of them in. I love the electric sterlizer and have a bottle of milton that i have never used under the sink, its so easy to just put all your bottles/teets etc in and 90mls of water and push a button and ten mins later clean bottles x

I've ordered the Avent electric steam one. It's what we had at work and was so easy, so I went with what I knew. Since it's electric, you need the counter top space. But all you do is bung the washed bottles, etc in with a little bit of water, put the lid on, press the button. It switches itself off after about 10 minutes, and everything stays sterile for a few good hours.

I'd recommend a microwave one - it's really easy to use and saves cluttering up the worktops. As for which brand - they are all pretty similar to use. The slots for the bottles are shaped to fit their own brand, but can be used with others, it's just a bit trickier to squeeze them in. I have an avent steriliser and use TT CTN & Dr Brown bottles.

Where on earth do you store yours when it's not in use then? I had an Avent electric (secondhand) which sat at one end of the worktop. When that stopped working, I switched over to my TT microwave/cold water steriliser, but other than the 8 minutes that it's in the microwave, it still takes up exactly the same amount of worktop space! Can't leave it in the microwave, I use that for cooking etc.
