Philips Avent 3-in-1 Electric Steam Sterilizer Review
If you have an infant you need this Philips Avent 3-in-1 Electric Steam Sterilizer in your life. This one is the first model Avent released and since 2012 Avent has redesigned it and changed some of the colors around but the set-up remains the same. This little gem heats up water to hospital grade sterilization so that your baby’s bottle comes out all nice and germ free. I have shown the various ways that this can be set-up above, you do not have to use the entire unit if you just need to sterilize a few things. Depending on the shape of the baby bottle the large bottom portion will hold up to 8 bottles and the part above that will hold the nipples, rings, lids and pacifiers. Also, this will sterilize any of the hard plastic baby toys your baby will use when he or she gets a little older. The 5th picture above shows the different containers this comes with and the white basket to the right in the picture can be used in a dish washer as well. The sterilization time with this is short, something like 7 minutes, that way you don’t have to worry about running a half-full dishwasher to just clean your baby supplies and it taking an hour to do it. It also beats having to boil the bottles in hot water, which takes forever and is a pain. I wish something like this would have been around 25 years ago, I would have been saved a lot of time. I continued to use this sterilizer until my grandson was a year old, so I definitely got my money’s worth out of it and I am now using it again for my new grandson.
When I purchased mine the only place I could find it at the time was Amazon and the cost was around $89, I believe. I know from looking that Target and Babies-R-Us now carries it and at Target it is $74.99. I do not know if you can even yet find these in stores. If it was going to be in a store I’d lay odds on Babies-R-Us, since they have everything else under the sun for babies.
Since we all want to keep our babies safe and as germ free as possible, I would highly recommend this product. I do not think you will be disappointed if you do. This is a great product for a shower gift. A new mother has enough on her plate as it is when she brings a new baby home. This product will make a tedious task less tedious and the new mother knows she is doing something good for her baby’s health.
