Guess it depends on your definition of cheap but we got a Tommee Tippee last time and have gone for the same again. We got a set though with bottles, warmer etc for 75 which was half price at mothercare. if you look around there are some good offers on.

Last time I got a tt electric one for about 25 on amazon. It was fab. This time I have been give an electric avent one.

We did have mam self sterilising bottles to start but had to change to dr browns which had some little bits so needed a good sterilisinf also.

I have the avent microwave steriliser. Used it last time & loved it so much I got another! Space being an issue for us it's great as its stored away in the micro!

I dunno what the advice is on US but in UK sterilising your equipment is a must, readdress of how well you wash, I wouldn't want to risk any nasty bugs in my new baby's tummy. Particularly if formula feeding xxx

I really don't think its a good idea to promote not sterilising bottles after every use, babies are very vulnerable and will pick up bacteria, virus etc. very easily, no matter how well you wash a bottle with a sponge, soap, hot water their could still be bacteria clinging onto that bottle so sterilising every time is a must in my opinion.

Abit about it if anyone's not sure about the importance of sterilisation

I respect that this is how you do things and I refuse to judge you in anyway I just don't think its advice that should be passed on or promoted

As for the original question, I got a second hand electric steriliser for free and it was fab! Maybe you could look at seeing what second hand ones are available in your area?

My tommee tippee electric one broke after 4 weeks use last time around and since then I just used a milton tank with cold water sterilisation using milton tablets which was what we had in the SCBU at hospital also. Never once regretted not replacing my electric steriliser, the cold water tank was far easier for me in terms of keeping bottles etc sterile. I plan on using it again and not wasting my money on something that I found harder and just didn't last!
