Dr Brown’s Microwave Steam Steriliser and giveaway

Dr Brown’s Microwave Steam Steriliser and giveaway

Having recently changed all of our little mans feeding bottles and replaced them with Dr Browns bottles, resulting in a massive improvement to his windy tummy I suspected the other products from the Dr Brown’s range would be equally as impressive.

The Dr Brown’s Microwave Steam Steriliser has a  tray inside that holds 4 Dr Brown’s bottles and components. The box also contains 2 x 240ml BPA-free feeding bottles with teats and all inserts and a pair of tongs. 

The steriliser is easy to set up and reminds me of a cake box. It’s also simple to use. You need to measure out 6fl oz of water with one of your bottles and pour into the bottom of the tray, then arrange the bottle components according to the instructions, put on the lid and heat in the microwave for five to eight minutes. Word of warning – it gets VERY hot.  Listen to the instructions and leave the unit to cool for 10 minutes before you can remove it from the microwave or open it. They are there for a reason. The first time I tried it I didn’t and ended up with burnt fingers.

The steriliser fits 4 standard or 4 wide neck Dr Browns baby bottles, but it also takes other brands of bottles.

It also helps to effectively kill all common household bacteria.

The steriliser costs a very reasonable £22.50, which considering the bottles that are included cost over £10 themselves makes the steriliser a bit of a bargain!

The good bits –

  • It takes up less space than a traditional steriliser and is ideal for nights away or travelling.
  • Providing you don’t use your microwave the steriliser can be stored out of sight in there, meaning it’s not another baby related item taking up bench space.
  • It fits most brands of bottle.
  • It includes two Dr Brown’s bottles which cost over £10 to buy separately.
  • It doesn’t need de-scaling like  electric sterilisers with metal elements.
  • It’s very reasonably priced.

The not so good bits –

  • It will only fit in a larger microwave, if you have a compact microwave it simply will not fit.
  • It takes a full 18 minutes to sterilise bottles which is longer than the Tommee Tippee electric steriliser I was using prior to this.
  • It will only keep your bottles sterile for up to 24 hours if you don’t open the lid, whilst this is the same with every steriliser I have ever heard anything about. 

You can read more about the Dr Brown’s microwave steriliser and the other products they have for sale on their website. 

Overall I am impressed by the steriliser, it’s another product from Dr Brown that gets my seal of approval.

    This is a great giveaway. I have a Medela steriliser which is pretty good, but it's very bulky and takes up loads of room in my kitchen. This would be great for my brother in law as his fiancee is due very soon and they only have a small kitchen 🙂

    This steriliser sounds great. I breastfeed my daughter so never really used my tommee tippee one. I'm expecting my 2nd baby and have decided to use bottles too, I can't find all the bits to my steriliser. I've heard good things about Dr Browns.

  20. 13th April 2014 / 10:04 pm

    lovely prize! im expecting baby #2 in sept so this would be very useful!

  21. 13th April 2014 / 10:39 pm

    Fab giveaway. Would be ideal to keep over my sisters house. I visit her every week, and it's such a pain lugging Evie's huge plug in sterilizer everywhere, along with all her other things, plus Amelia's things lol

  22. 13th April 2014 / 10:44 pm

    Having a little girl within the next couple of months so this would be fabulous!

  23. 14th April 2014 / 12:03 am

    I've got a new baby girl, would make my life so much easier if I won this.

  24. 14th April 2014 / 7:05 pm

    this looks a much better steriliser than the ones that need chemical solutions – well done for hosting the giveaway

  25. 14th April 2014 / 8:34 pm

    Great giveaway, would be really useful for my friend who uses Dr Brown's bottles x
