Can I use a microwave steam sterilizer in a regular oven?


I don't have a microwave and dont really want to get one. I got a Dr Browns Microwave Steam Sterilizer set and am wondering if I can just use it in a regular oven???

No. It doesn't do the same thing! It'll melt for a start!

I would say not. It's a different kind of energy that creates the heat & your plastic steriliser would either melt or melt & catch fire I'd think

I'd buy an electric steam sterilizer instead........either that or a cheap microwave.

No, but kind of wonder why you bought a microwave steriliser if you dont have or intend on getting a microwave when there are other types on the market??

Yeah, I think the oven would melt it too, have you thought about an electric or a cold water steriliser? xxx

No!!

Take it back somewhere and explain it was a gift and you should be able to swap it - goodwill of course as you don't have a receipt probably

Definitely not! lol, take it back and exchange it for either an electric steriliser, or just do the cold water sterilisation option with sterilising tablets
