Burning smell and leaks!Been using this for a month and not only does it leak water all over my work surface (never overfilled), all the bottles, dummies and breast pump parts have come out smelling burnt, despite cleaning it regularly. I’ve had to replace everything at a huge cost. Unfortunately the slimline design and quick cycle time does not cancel out the disappointment.

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

Burnt outAfter using this product for 1 day, we started to smell burning while being used. Looking we saw that the plate was getting burnt, we started to wipe it clean after every use, but it was affecting the basket they started to look burnt too. Which then made the bottles smell caramelised and burnt. We've decided to stop using it as this can't be good for baby and obviously wasn't sterilising properly. All after one day use

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!

Works well but needs to live next to a sink.Works very well. We used to have the previous (smaller) model but it didn't survive very well for when child number 2 arrived. Very happy this is so big as we are using a different (not Avent) bottle system and it doesn't stack as neatly. There are a lot of complaints in the reviews about leaking from the bottom. This is what happened to our first one but only after it had been in storage for a few years. It worked fine while we were using it regularly. I have found that it is important to follow the instructions. The water tray at the bottom needs to be emptied after every use (some of the steam will condense and fall back down). It then needs to be filled with the correct amount of water. If it is over filled it will leak. It loses a star because the cable doesn't sit very well in the base, so every time you pick it up to empty it you need to faff with the cable.

Very good steriliserVery good steriliser which is quite a bit smaller than the one we previously owned therefore taking up less surface space but sterilising almost as much as the other.
We currently use a competitors baby bottles which means we can't sterilise as many bottles as we would be able to if we used philips bottles. (5 bottles fit instead of the intended 6 - not a big issue as we can also sterilise dummy boxes or milk powder containers in the place of the other)
Being in a hard water area we have had to clean the base on a weekly basis, this is the same with all though.
We prefer this to the competitors steriliser and have replaced the old steriliser with this freeing up more kitchen space but sterilising more products due to the height.
