About this deal
While a bottle sterilizer isn't fully necessary to clean bottles, it’s a piece of gear you’ll be thankful for later. Typically, you can remove all bottle pieces and place them inside the sterilizer, press a button, and the work is done for you. Without a bottle sterilizer, you can boil disassembled feeding items for 5 minutes or bleach them.
There’s also the option to use a dishwasher with a heated drying cycle or sanitizing setting. If you choose to clean your baby's bottles via dishwasher (with hot water and a heated drying cycle or sanitizing setting), a separate sanitizing step is unnecessary, Dr. Agarwal explains. However, if your dishwasher is empty and you don’t want to run a full cycle for a few bottles, a bottle sterilizer comes in handy. Although a bottle sterilizer isn’t necessary, the right one can make life easier for busy parents. If your pediatrician recommends sterilizing bottles between feedings, you might like the convenience of being able to load and run a sterilizer without needing to boil water every time. (This is especially true if you're feeding multiple babies.) Just because thePhilips Avent 3-in-1 Electric Steam Sterilizeris named for the bottles of the same brand, you can still use pretty much any other bottles for the sterilizer if those are already your preference.This 3-in-1 sterilizer kills 99.9 percent of harmful germs and bacteria on bottles without using any chemicals that could harm your little one.

By following the steps in this article, you can ensure that your baby’s items are properly sterilized, providing them with the level of protection they need against harmful germs and bacteria. Parents in our What to Expect community love the speed of this sterilizer — it can sterilize bottles in just two minutes, assuming your microwave's power is between 1200 and 1850 watts. It can also hold up to four bottles, though I found it can fit much more. And if you leave the lid closed after you take it out of the microwave, the items will stay sterile for up to 24 hours.You can set the mode you need to use at any given time, close the sterilizer, and walk away without needing to do anything else as the machine works. A fast, six-minute sterilization cycle and a narrow profile make this Philips AVENT bottle sterilizer a great choice for families with limited countertop space. And like the Baby Brezza, the contents will remain clean and sterile for up to 24 hours after the cycle as long as the lid remains closed.
