Dr Brown’s Steam Bottle Steriliser and Dryer Reviews

When it first arrived I first noticed the size of the product- it was large but of similar size to other sterilisers I’ve seen. I then noticed the colour, it is a grey lid with white base and rim, which isn’t the prettiest but fairly standard for a steriliser it seems. Buttons are nicely designed and look sleek against the main body. The design is very practical, and a good size for what we needed. Once I had taken it apart and reassembled with the basket again, it was really easy to take apart and put together. Water measurer was really handy, especially if you are using for an under 6 month old. Accessory tray really handy too for smaller parts of breast pump especially. Well thought out design and parts. Good clear instructions with pictures making it straight forward to use, no issues there. Minimal set up once assembled. really easy to use after the first go, had to use the instruction manual to understand steps but once I had done it once I was fine. Just pressed the button to start and let it do its job! More space than we needed but would be perfect for 6 bottles if they were Dr Brown’s, unsure if it would fit 6 of any brand. We only used the steriliser for max 3 bottles at a time (of a different brand as we already had these), and we are using small feeding bottles, but there was also space to do all my breast pump parts, with the handy accessory tray also. Used this for my breast pump- Medela swing, plenty of room for this especially with accessory tray, was very effective at sterilising, not all the pump parts were fully dry after use but were drier than if they had been left out. I have had no infection problems whilst using the steriliser and we have had no signs of mould on our bottles or breast pump, so I would not Disagree with this statement but would not be able to comment if it eliminates 99.9% of germs. It is great that it does though! And I trust this statement is correct. This was a great feature to be able to dry the products too. I mainly used the combo feature in the evening and then had my clean bottles and parts for use the next day, although the suction element on my breast pump were not always 100% dry, but these are quite difficult to fully dry and I think they would potentially be damaged if the process was any different- I was happy with how well the other parts were cleaned and dried though. The sterilising cycle however was pretty quick, so I used this a few times alone when I just needed one bottle doing quickly- was great to have the option of different cycles. We only needed to sterilise a couple of bottles at a time as we were sterilising 2-3x. week, my daughter is mainly breast fed but we started to introduce a bottle of expressed milk when she was 4 months and then formula once a day when she was starting to wean, so this steriliser was perfect for our needs and fitted within our routine perfectly. We used it for 3 small bottles, I have seen other brand larger bottles that are fairly wide and so I am unsure if these would all fit comfortably in the steriliser with my pump parts too, but for us everything fitted in well. The 2 HEPA type filters was a bonus, especially as these should hopefully see us through on our sterilisation journey. I know these are for superior drying, I can’t comment on the steriliser without the filters as we used them the whole time, but I was happy to have this addition. We kept it on the side in the kitchen just as we are using it so frequently, it does take up quite a bit of space and when we have had guests over we have placed it out of the way in one of our larger cupboards. Our kitchen has space for it but we don’t have a huge amount of work surface but it was worth it for the use we were getting out of the product, as putting it away regularly would have been a lot of effort as we were using it so often. We only needed to sterilise a couple of bottles at a time and so we were sterilising 2-3x a week, my daughter is mainly breast fed but we started to introduce a bottle of expressed milk when she was 4 months and then formula once a day when she was starting to wean, so this steriliser was perfect for our needs and fitted within our routine perfectly. Before the steriliser we were using microwave bags and Milton tablets- the steriliser was superior to both of these. We were using it as often as the dishwasher! I think the drying aspect of the steriliser was the best for us as it meant we could put our bottles/pump parts in and they would be pretty much ready for use. Any other sterilising method we used prior to this always left all the bottles and pump parts wet and they took a long time to fully dry. Although not all my breast pump parts were fully dry as discussed earlier, they were much more dry than they would have been without use of the steriliser. The quality of the product new was as expected and I have no concerns. Everything looked well thought out, it assembled together easily and without problems, no concerns with any of the electricals and it is still working as well today as when we first received it. Regarding the quality I also liked the accessory tray, this had clearly been well thought out and made the sterilising experience and assembly of the product easy. From a search online it looks like this is on the higher end of price point for a bottle steriliser. This does have the drying facility and comes with the filters, which I would argue would be worth the cost. I would buy if we had another child and reason to sterilise again as I’ve said above : it looks like this is on the higher end of price point for a bottle steriliser. This does have the drying facility and comes with the filters, which I would argue would be worth the cost. It is definitely much better and easier in a busy household than Milton tablets or microwave bags. I would recommend if you need to sterilise more than just breast pump parts, if you are sterilising bottles etc as well then this is a perfect product. It sterilises and dry’s and does what you need, enabling you to have sterilised parts easily throughout your week and can fit into your busy schedule! Really great product, easy to use and used frequently throughout the week by my family. Easy to use and once you get into a routine with it parts can be washed and put into the steriliser ready for their next use. Very happy with the product, easy to use and became integral to my daily routine with my family. Well thought out design with accessory tray, added bonus of filter. Dry’s bottles and parts really well, not consistent with drying of all breast pump parts but I have to admit these take a while to dry anyway and I would not say this is completely achievable for any product to do without risking damaging the suction of the part. Large size and so would not fit in all kitchens, but being large means you can sterilise everything you need to in one go. Would recommend and would purchase myself if I needed to in future.

When the product arrive initially it looked and felt really big and I thought it would stand out in the area I was going to store it. Once out of the packaging and set up I really liked the design, the dark colours help it to blend in and it isn’t bulky like other sterilisers. The steriliser itself is quite stylish and doesn’t look cheap. The instructions held a lot of information but it was especially helpful because they included pictures of each instruction, meaning there wasn’t lots of text you had to read. It made it very easy to set up and use. It was very easy and simple to set up once you have looked at the instructions, however, you could definitely figure out how to set it up without them. Having just a few buttons is helpful rather than having lots of different things to press and steps to go through. For me personally I use 9 bottles a day and prefer to have them all sterilised each night ready for the following day. Only being able to sterilise 6 either meant to sterilise through the day which is not always convenient. The tray at the top is very useful for pacifiers, teethers and toys. I definitely agree this sterilises well, it gets hot enough and the time it takes to do a run through of sterilising makes you feel confident it is working. The drying feature is also a huge bonus to making them feel clean due to no water being left in. I really liked the features, it was good to just use the sterilise feature when needed just one or two bottles. On the other hand the combo was fantastic for the night so I could set the bottles to sterilise and dry for the following day. As mentioned above I would prefer it to be able to fit more bottles in but for sterilising 6 bottles it was perfect. However, I found the lid at the top was very slim at the edges so you can only use the middle, as it was too low to put anything around the edging. Including another filter was definitely an added bonus because I prefer to keep a filter in at all times ready for when it is needed, supplying an extra filter was very convenient and worth the price. I kept the steriliser on the kitchen worktops, which fitted in well. I used this each night and at least one time through the day. My favourite feature was the drying function, it was so helpful for taking bottles out in bags without getting things wet, I also really liked the look and style of it as it blended into the kitchen really well. The quality was amazing, I have had no issues with the product and it isn’t flimsy or cheaply made. Although it is in the higher price side It is definitely reflected in the product. It has worked effectively for each use and including the spare filter is included in the price. It would be something I would consider purchasing, it is very effective, have had no issues and helps you feel comfortable with using bottles to feed your child with. I have already recommended it to a friend who is due to have a baby because it is so simple to use. It is a fantastic product I just would prefer a larger size available. I was very unsure how I would find this product to start with because I use MAM bottles which are very quick and easy to sterilise in the microwave. However after using this for just one time I haven’t got back to my old sterilising method. Using this product does take a little longer but it makes you feel more confident that they are fully sterilised and you can see the steam has got round the full basket giving you further reassurance. The drying method had been amazing to use because if you have to hand dry a bottle before use or taking it out with you it takes the point of sterilising away. The design itself is practical and doesn’t look out of place, however, the wire is very short which I found an issue when placing it. Lucy Knowles – Nellie 8 Months

When it first arrived I was unsure of the size but when I got it out of the box I thought it was quite a nice size and not to big especially as my kitchen is small. I was also thinking it was going to be heavy but it’s nice and light weight which makes It easy to move about. Nice colours and love the tray for the extra bits. Also love that it’s lightweight. Simple instructions, easy to follow got the machine up and running in minutes. Also love that it tells you how to clean it. Quick to set up as instructions were easy to follow , started using the same day as received. This is perfect as I only have 6 bottles and wouldn’t need to sterilise more than this which I found a lot better than the microwave sterilisers where you could only do 4 at a time but would find it difficult If I needed to sterilise anything else. I thought it was great for this as I have sterilise syringes daily for my baby so it was great that there was an extra tray to put these in. I also used it for dummies and spoons and teething toys. I do agree this sterilises and eliminates bacteria, mould and yeast. It works well as it does the job it describes. think this is useful as when you no longer need to sterilise but want to dry bottles this only dry feature will be perfect for this. I do find majority of the time you will do both. The basket is perfect as the steriliser is not too big but fits a variety of branded bottles in nicely. Also love the tray for all other little bits. I think having the 2 HEPA type filters is perfect as I wouldn’t sterilise after my baby Is a year old. But it’s handy that it comes with enough to last this time. I kept it on my side in the kitchen as this is where I prepare his bottles. I used it once a day once I have used all his bottles and get the ready for the next day. I love the dry feature as I find waiting for the bottles to dry to put away takes too long. I think it’s a sturdy but lightweight product. I think the product is great but is a bit expensive when you have lots of other baby products to buy. When you can get a microwave one for £20 however there and some more benefits to the steam steriliser and dryer. So it’s just about weighing this out. I would probably consider purchasing if this was on offer. I would recommend as I think it’s a great product the only downfall would be the price but that’s a personal preference others may be able to afford this. Again great product works well just quite a bit of money. My overall experience has been great has been helpful to do 6 bottles at a time with dummies and other small items at the same time with also having the drying feature. Emily Gurling – Kobi 7 Months
