Types of Sterilisers

  • Microwave sterilisers disinfect objects with heat. They tend to be quite small and keep the baby dishes perfectly clean for 3 to 24 hours, depending on the specific device. Choose your steriliser based on the inner dimensions of your microwave oven and always make sure that the dishes or toys you’re trying to sterilise are actually microwavable.
  • An electric steam steriliser disinfects baby bottles with hot steam. It’s usually larger, which means it can fit more objects at once, and it keeps them sterilised for 3 to 24 hours. Electric sterilisers usually come with additional functions.
  • A self-sterilising bottle is a baby bottle you can easily disinfect in the microwave by rearranging the parts and adding a bit of water, without using any other device. You’ll especially appreciate this model while travelling.
  • A bottle warmer and steriliser in one can disinfect your baby bottles while keeping them at the desired temperature.

Our tip: When you’re travelling or you only need to disinfect the baby bottle once in a while, you can use sterilising bags which are designed for a quick steam sterilisation in the microwave oven.

Using the Steriliser

  • Read the instructions carefully before you start using your bottle steriliser.
  • Start by washing the objects you want to sterilise.
  • Make sure to wash your hands before you touch the baby dishes.
  • Pour the required amount of water into the device.
  • Place the baby dishes and other objects into the compartment, put it into the device and select the right cycle.
  • Wait at least 10 minutes after the cycle ends before you open the device.
