Papablic Papablic01

Up to 11 Bottles With Accessories

Papablic Baby Bottle Electric Steam Sterilizer is good enough to put most sterilizers to shame. There are multiple things we like about this product and not that many things we dislike.

As far as we're concerned, the model's downsides are basically limited to its somewhat loud operation. Besides that, the device is as good as they come.

You'll be able to keep baby bottles, pacifiers, teether, breast pump pieces, and plastic toys about as dry, clean, and fresh-smelling as these items can be.

The product's biggest strength/selling point is its capacity. There are three different stacking options to choose from. You'll be able to clean up to 11 bottles and accessories, including the aforementioned plastic toys, teethers, and pacifiers, all at the same time.

In other words, the device will be able to save you time and effort. The lid, tall basket, and the accessory tray are easily removable, providing you access to three different configurations that should prove more or less suitable depending on what it is you're looking to clean.

Considering its capacity, you'd probably presume that this sanitizer is pretty bulky. That's not the case though. Measuring 3 x 4 x 3 inches, the device is much more compact than most baby bottle sterilizers. You won't have to wonder where to put this device and where to find enough space to place the unit. You'll be able to bring this thing with you wherever you go. Also, the ergonomic shape the machine's incorporating makes it easy to carry the device and take it apart for occasional cleaning.

12 Hours Storage

As far as the setup is concerned, this flexible device will let you sterilize with steam, completely various items using hot air, and deodorize them to clean from start to finish. You'll have no issues accessing these settings. There's but one mechanical knob that lets you manage them with ease. There's also an LED indicator that displays the progress.

Plus, the device comes equipped with automatic drying and power off functions.

Apart from everything else, you can store bottles inside the machine. Close the lid and you'll be able to keep sanitized bottles/various accessories nice and safe in the most sterile environment for over 12 hours.

Long story short, Papablic Baby Bottle Electric Steam Sterilizer penetrates bottles and different accessories with high-temperature steam to keep them as clean as possible as quickly as possible. The machine's effective, efficient, and surprisingly compact.

OMorc 5-in-1

Adjust the Size and Needs

OMorc 5-in-1 Multifunctional Electric Steam Bottle Sterilizer is up there with the most complete products on this market. Besides its ability to sterilize bottles, the device is able to automatically dry these bottles after sterilizing them, deodorize the bottles, and also serve them as milk warmers and food heaters to meet/match various needs.

Generally speaking, these sterilizers usually meander somewhere around 200-300 watts. The product doesn't necessarily follow this rule though. Drawing 550 watts, the machine's able to generate big-time steam. You can set the device anywhere between 6 and 15 minutes depending on the items you're looking to sterilize.

The machine's capacity is nothing to write home about but also nothing to scoff at. It will let you sterilize and dry up to six 6-ounce bottles and four 9-ounce bottles at once. Of course, you'll also be able to sterilize various accessories simultaneously too, including bowls, cups, spoons, and breast pumps.

At the same time, the device's adjustable size will let you separately sterilize different accessories with the small basket or only sanitize feeding bottles with the large basket.

You'll have no issues assembling and disassembling this machine for maintenance. The processed heating plates will be able to reduce limescale build. You'll also be able to completely eliminate limescale occasionally cleaning the device with vinegar.

Review of OMorc 5-in-1 Multifunctional Electric Steam Bottle Sterilizer

Accessible Controls

Needless to say, the machine has its flaws too. First, the sterilizer has this strong chemical smell to it initially. The smell goes away after 2-3 cycles though. However, we cannot extend the same sentiment towards the machine's size. Measuring 11.2 x 8.5 x 13.4 inches, it is not necessarily compact. In fact, we'd go as far as to call the device quite bulky.

There are upsides to its massive size though, the biggest being the 5-ounce water reservoir. As you would imagine, a tank like that will let you use the machine multiple times without having to refill the reservoir.

All that's left are the device's controls. Long story short, we like them. A lot. The buttons are intuitive and responsive. The LCD screen makes the settings easily accessible. You'll have no issues rotating between these settings whenever necessary.

To sum up, OMorc 5-in-1 Multifunctional Electric Steam Bottle Sterilizer is as complete as these machines get. Making baby feeding easier and safer, this device is easy to recommend to most parents with infants.

Philips AVENT 3-in-1

Sleek Little Machine

Philips AVENT 3-in-1 Electric Steam Sterilizer looks sleek and streamlined. The machine's aesthetics are no accident too. Matching form, fit, and function, the device lets you quickly sterilize and deodorize bottles.

Its biggest and, as far as we're concerned, only downside is that the machine is unable to dry bottles/different baby accessories, which is disappointing considering that the device delivers everywhere else.

Setting aesthetics aside, size-wise, the machine's quite compact, measuring 6.3 x 11.4 x 13.8 inches. As far as these sterilizers go, the unit takes up very little valuable kitchen space. Its weight doesn't even reach 3.5 pounds, so you'll also have no issues carrying this device with you.

Meanwhile, its modular design lets you comfortably fit different bottles/accessories, load them, organize, and unload these accessories with ease.

The machine holds up to six 11-ounce bottles at once, which is pretty impressive considering that these baby bottle sterilizers are usually unable to accommodate such bottles. You can use the machine with standard-neck bottles and wide-neck bottles.

Apart from that, this compact bottle cleaner machine is more than compatible with most baby products/accessories, including breast pumps, pacifiers, teethers, different plastic toys, and more.

The water reservoir measures 3.4 ounces, which is pretty middling. At the same time, more often than not, the aforementioned capacity will be enough for two complete sterilization cycles, so you won't have to refill the tank all that often.

Review of Philips AVENT 3-in-1 Electric Steam Sterilizer

Sterile for 24 Hours

The machine's effective first and foremost. It is able to kill 99% of harmful germs and bacteria without using chemicals.

The device is also quite efficient, sterilizing the bottles/accessories within six minutes and automatically shutting off once it is done for speed and safety reasons.

Its open design lets you easily keep the heating plate clean so that you're always able to sterilize with clean steam without investing too much time and effort into maintenance.

At the same time, close the lid and you'll be able to keep the contents sterile as long as 24 hours.

The tongs that come supplied with the machine will let you load and unload these sterilized items.

Bottom line, Philips AVENT 3-in-1 Electric Steam Sterilizer will enable you to quickly and easily keep the most necessary baby accessories sterilized and deodorized. The affordable price tag makes the machine especially attractive.

Baby Brezza BRZ0098

Comfortable to Operate

Baby Brezza BRZ0098 looks somewhat odd. As far as we're concerned though, the machine's looks do not define this product's worth. Quite the opposite, actually.

First, the machine will let you sterilize, dry, and deodorize bottles and different feeding accessories. You can also use this device to sterilize plastic toys.

Sure, from certain perspectives is not the most convenient device on this list. Measuring 16.5 x 11.5 x 11.5 inches, the machine is not especially compact. Since its weight reaches 6.5 pounds, we cannot call the device comparatively lightweight too.

We're not saying that the machine's all that difficult to use, store, and transport but it is more challenging in these regards than every other entry within this lineup.

Of course, the product has its advantages too, even pertaining to these areas. Sure, its weight and size are not ideal.

At the same time, incorporating built-in handles, the device is quite easy and comfortable to carry/move around, even when it hasn't completely cooled down. Meanwhile, the non-skid feet make sure that the appliance stands still during operation no matter the surface.

The power cable is pretty short though, so you'll be somewhat tied to the next AC outlet or forced to use an extender/adapter/power strip.

Review of Baby Brezza BRZ0098 Baby Bottle Sterilizer and Dryer Machine

Massive Screen

Capacity-wise, the machine is fairly pedestrian. You'll be able to sterilize, dry, and deodorize six bottles at once plus accessories like pacifiers and breast pump parts.

The massive LCD screen and the touch buttons make the device's settings accessible and easy to figure out. Plus, the screen is backlit, so you'll be able to comfortably use the appliance even in low-light conditions.

Even setting these options aside though, the machine's as streamlined as they come, automatically switching to the drying mode once the sterilization part is complete and automatically turning off when it is done drying the items.

In other words, you can turn the machine on, set the desired action, and go about your day knowing that the appliance will prepare you sterile bottles no matter what.

Taking less than 8 minutes, the device uses natural steam to kill 99% of germs without incorporating chemicals. The drying part will take somewhere between 30 and 60 minutes depending on the settings. Once it is done, you can store and keep the items sterile inside the machine for 24 hours.

In conclusion, Baby Brezza BRZ0098 will save you the time and effort usually required to keep these feeding accessories completely clean.

Eccomum Electric Steam

Dehydrates Food Too

Eccomum Electric Steam Baby Bottle Sterilizer is not the most affordable product on this list but that's because the device is easily the most versatile unit within this lineup. Using this machine, you'll be able to do pretty much anything, from sterilizing and drying baby bottles and different baby items to deodorizing them, warming food and milk containers, and even dehydrating food.

The device is not only versatile but also highly effective. Incorporating this 360-degree output rotary air current, the machine makes sure that there are no dead angles, disinfecting and drying in all directions. The appliance cleans without leaving residues, avoids secondary pollution, and, all in all, provides safe and healthy all-round care for the baby, killing 99.9% of various harmful substances.

Again, you can use the device to fast-heat milk, formulas, and baby food. It will be able to quickly (within five minutes) and evenly heat milk bottles, all while protecting the nutrients in the milk and allowing the children to thrive healthily.

You can extend the same sentiment towards most mid-range and high-end baby bottle sterilizers. However, these devices will not let you dry fruits, which is something that we can comfortably say about this machine. You'll be able to easily supply newborns/infants/toddlers with the necessary nutrition elements, all without using additives.

Review of Eccomum Electric Steam Baby Bottle Sterilizer and Dryer

Not Going Above 30 Decibels

The machine's capacity is excellent too. Considering its 13 x 9.2 x 13 inches in the overall dimensions department, it is pretty impressive that the device is able to accommodate 12 baby bottles at the same time.

Of course, as it is always the case with these machines, you'll also be able to stuff breast pumps, toys, pacifiers, and even dinnerware inside this sterilizer. The machine lets you choose between three stacking options, so you can separate them or sterilize all items at once.

Despite how effective the device is, it is surprisingly quiet at the same time. Never going above 30 decibels, the machine won't disturb babies' sleep.

At the same time, you shouldn't face maintenance challenges. The machine's length-adjustable. The winding coil disc lets you prevent messes, protect wires, and comfortably store this appliance.

In closing, Eccomum Electric Steam Baby Bottle Sterilizer is what all smart mothers should probably consider. The machine will last and will quickly pay for itself.

What Is a Baby Bottle Sterilizer?

Baby bottle sterilizers are exactly what the name suggests - they're appliances that sterilize baby bottles. Of course, generally speaking, they're able to do much more than that. We've covered these devices' advantages and aspects in the What Features to Compare and Did You Know sections, so we'll be keeping things brief here.

Aside from everything we've addressed there, these steam cleaners differ construction-wise. More often than not, these mobile cleaning systems incorporate removable parts that you can configure many different ways to accommodate various different items at once.

The best baby bottle sterilizers incorporate automatic drying and shut-off functions. In other words, the machine will automatically start drying the items after sterilizing them and automatically shut off after completely drying these items.

Also, more often than not, these appliances will let you store the bottles inside, keeping them in a sterile environment for 12-24 hours depending on the model.

These baby monitors will provide the necessary peace of mind and let you keep tabs on the baby without having to be present in the room. These baby swings, on the other hand, will keep them comfortable and engaged.

What Features to Compare

Type

Though dubbed bottle sterilizers, these appliances are usually able to do more than that. More often than not, these machines will also be able to deodorize bottles, keeping them fresh and pleasant. At the same time, most electric sterilizers can be used to dry the bottles. Sometimes, these machines will even let you quickly warm up milk and food bottles. Though rare, certain models are even capable of dehydrating food, so you can use them to dry fruits.

Apart from that, again, despite the "bottle" in the name, these machines will usually let you work with more than baby bottles. Using these appliances, you'll be able to treat and sanitize breast pumps, pacifiers, teethers, plastic toys, and more.

Capacity

Generally speaking, baby bottle sterilizers are able to accommodate somewhere between 5 and 10 bottles at once. That being said, these advertised numbers can be quite misleading. First, the people behind these products seldom specify the bottles that you'll be able to put inside these machines. Second, sometimes, you're able to accommodate the advertised number of bottles plus various feeding items, while other times you'll have to choose between bottles and these items.

Water Reservoir

This one's pretty straightforward. More often than not, these sterilizers boast water tanks with a capacity somewhere between 3.5 and 5 ounces. These numbers will determine how long the machine will be able to sterilize without refills. Generally speaking, these machines will be able to last somewhere around 15-20 minutes depending on that capacity.

Controls

These machines are seldom especially intricate/complicated. Most incorporate basic knobs that let you access the machine's settings. Sometimes, these devices come equipped with LCD screens and more sophisticated touch buttons but even then you shouldn't have any issues figuring them out.

Extras

There are many things we can talk about that more or less fall under the "extras" category. First off, most half-decent baby bottle sanitizers come equipped with non-skid feet to make sure you're able to use the machine anywhere you want without taking the surface into account.

Apart from that, these devices often come supplied with measuring cups and tongs to comfortably refill the tank and load/unload the bottles/feeding accessories.

Other than that, you should also pay attention to various features and functions, including whether the screen is backlit or not, whether the device has any solutions that keep the machine quiet, and so on and so forth.

Did you know?

Many parents argue that bottle sterilizers are not necessary. Now, they're not necessarily wrong. However, we would argue that you cannot go wrong investing in these little machines.

As some probably know, in the early 1800s, the infant mortality rate was unfortunately high, especially among those babies who were bottle-fed. As the years went on, we've managed to figure out that the biggest reason behind this phenomenon was the bacteria that children would ingest through these bottles.

That's when mothers started sterilizing baby bottles. In other words, you can do that without any cunning devices. That's usually the case with these devices. You don't buy them because you need them. You buy them because they make your life easier. That's a sentiment we can very much extend towards baby bottle sterilizers.

Convenience

First and foremost, these devices are convenient. Your baby will wake you up in the middle of the night and all you'd want to do is quickly feed the baby so that you can go back to sleep. Using these sterilizers, you'll be able to sanitize and prepare clean bottles within minutes, while doing so manually will usually take you at least 20-30 minutes.

Ease of Use

Of course, there's nothing difficult about boiling a pot of water and soaking baby bottles in this boiling water. However, it takes time to heat the water and effort to carefully unload the bottles from the pot. That's not the case with baby bottle sterilizers. These devices are handy, convenient, and easy to use. You won't have to worry about burning your hands when retrieving the items. You won't have to prepare pot(s). You won't have to do much at all. You fill the appliance's tank, throw the bottles/feeding items into the machine, and off you go. Plus, these appliances rarely consume that much energy, so you won't have to worry about increased electricity bills.

Quickness

Again, the biggest selling point here is speed. Generally speaking, these machines are able to sterilize bottles within 5-10 minutes. You don't even have to be present. Can you say the same about the aforementioned orthodox methods? Not really. That's why more and more parents these days opt for these devices.

Maintenance

Having said all that, there are downsides to these machines, mainly the maintenance part. Sure, generally speaking, most half-decent baby bottle sterilizers are not that hard to maintain. More often than not, these devices incorporate some anti-limescale solutions. The parts are usually removable, so you can clean them separately and assemble the device back together with ease. You'll probably occasionally have to treat them with vinegar to completely prevent limescale but, as far as we're concerned, that's not the biggest price to pay.

Conclusion

When it comes to baby bottle sterilizers, we believe that the upsides far outweigh the downsides and recommend most parents with newborns/infants/toddlers to, at the very least, consider the machines that we've added to this list.
