    I got a Lindam Microwave/Cold water steriliser. It was £12.99 from a shop on Ebay.

    I use it as a Cold water. Quick, and easy.

    :D

    We've got the Avent Electric one which has been great- but no good if you have the Tommee Tippee bottles as you won't fit 6 in but you can fit obviously the Avent bottles in and also the Doctor Browns ones.

    i use milton cold water great for sterilising as and when you need to,
    cold water is loads cheaper than paying on electric, i hate microwave ones i burnt myself the first time i used itthe 2nd time the dam thing got stuck in there.
    cant go wrong with cold water

    I did wonder about the bottle issue, if that means you then have to buy the same make... I need it primarily for my pump, as my baby's going to be in SCBU for a while. Hadn't really thought about it and only got 11 days to go!

    Thanks for your responses. Really can't decide whether to go with steam or cold water... aargh.

    I have both the tommee tippee microwave and electric steralisers.
    I like them both, really easy to use.
