Brilliant piece of kitI love how it is spacious and has 3 different sizes so you can fit different types of baby items in and it also kills 99.9% of germs which is very reassuring for parents. Also it only takes 6 minutes which is very handy when you need or forget to sterilise something

Invaluable to new mum'sAs a physically disabled new and old mum of 3, the new designed electronic philips steriliser is a time saving, easy to use, beautiful godsend.
It's fast and effective, uses minimal electricity compared to others on the market and it's easy enough to use at 3am when you realise you've run out of bottles or your darling baby has just thrown the last dummy on the floor.
Gone are the nights of screaming waiting for bottles to be clean and safe, the baby seems happier too ;)
Honestly don't know how on earth I coped before this spectacular piece of equipment was in my life!
I've always used philips avent bottles and sterilisers and now I know why!
Thanks to the geniuses that made the slight changes to a perfect machine (I know from use with my previous 2 babies) for making it faster and better than ever
P. S it's easy on the eye too, and doesn't take up too much work surface.
P. P. S so easy to clean all the parts too, no fiddly hard to reach crevices!

Better than using a microwave sterilisersI have had 3 kids, all of them i used microwave sterilisers but with my 3rd i got seriously fed up of having to take it in and out of the microwave, find space on the side for this object that looked like a UFO- hahah!
This 3-1 electric steriliser is so much slimmer than a microwave one, i havent really lost any space on my kitchen side which is fantastic for me as i do alot of cooking and baking so need the space!
The only problem i have personally is the cable is a little shorter than i would like and i am not overly keen on where the water tray is/ how it is designed but i can live with it and get used to it.
It is very very fast which is a bonus when you have a screaming baby wanting to be fed literally right that second!
I would recommend to friends and family over microwave ones just for the fact it is more space saver friendly but you can fit plenty in it!

Overall a good productThe Philips avent 3-in-1 bottle steriliser is exactly what it says on the box, it sterilises not just bottles but everything else you can think of. Dummies, tears, breaths feeding equipment (which I find quite hard to wash some parts, so I know that they will be 100% sterilised with this steriliser).
We travel quite a lot so it's good for in the move as it's very compact and light.
It's very quick at sterilising as well as it is finished within minutes so there's no need to be waiting for ages when you need a fresh bottle there and then.
This product is very easy to use, nothing complicated and no need to add any other cleaning products other than water.
The design of the Philips 3-in-1 steriliser is ok but it only fits 6 bottles in at once but I suppose if it only take 5 minutes to sterilise then it's not so bad. It looks good on my kitchen counter top also.

Extremely disappointed. Let us downReally frustrated with this product. We’ve only been using for two weeks and it’s caused a load of issues.
Firstly it leaks everywhere. This, however, we can deal with. Secondly, the metal base started burning and leaving a black residue after two uses. We then saw this was a well documented issue with this product and so we used the white vinegar solution. Fine, we can tolerate that.
Now, two weeks in it’s simply stopped working. Just won’t turn on. We’ve used it three times!!! And we desperately needed to sterilise this morning.
So frustrating. Would not recommend this to anyone, especially now I’ve seen all the other complaints online. Can’t believe that this is still allowed to be stocked.

Simple and so practical!Clearly a product that has had careful consideration put into its design and performance. The slimline design means I have a steriliser that doesn't take up half my kitchen like a big circular steriliser would! I was a little skeptical initially about how such a design would fit a good amount of bottles in but I managed all the bottles and teats I wanted to sterilise. It isn't too noisy and so quickly brings out fresh, steamy cleaned bottles! I have full confidence that the Avent 3-in-1 thoroughly cleans my bottles and is safe for any baby. I'm also glad it doesn't have a very long wire to plug in, perfect length. Really is a quality product that is so convenient for all us busy mums

Good product, has some flawsI have been using this steriliser for about a month now and it does its job for sterilising the bottles and teats. The unit also shrinks down for me to be able to do any extra bottle tops and teats. I have found that water tends to leak from the unit when trying to get everything out when the process has finished, this causes me additional work for wiping down the sides afterwards. I have tried to use this along side a microwave steriliser and have found that i prefer the microwave method as i feel the cleaning and maintenance is less invasive. it is a good product and does what it is designed to do by sterilising bottles, I think i will stick with the microwave method

Works well. But doesn't lastI purchased this product around 6 months ago.. within 3 months it stopped working (base won't switch on).. but I couldn't find the receipt for my purchase.. So I had to repurchase a new second unit.. well less than 3 months later and exactly the same has happened again.. this time i saved the receipt and registered the product.. So can hopefully get it fixed/replaced by Philips.. but for how long until it breaks down again??.
Definitely won't be buying this product again or recommending it to anyone else.. it's a shame because it's a good product in general, just not very reliable.
