OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Before you use those new baby bottles, you'll want to sterilize them. And it's easy to do with the MAM Microwave Steam Sterilizer. This green-and-white sterilizer can sterilize up to six bottles in five minutes right in your microwave. It even comes with one five-ounce anti-colic MAM bottle to get you started plus tongs for making it easy to remove all of the bottle pieces from the sterilizer.

The Microwave Steam Sterilizer is made up of four parts: the lid, an upper basket, a lower basket, and a base. Fill the base with water up to the fill line (seven ounces). And then load the two levels of baskets with your disassembled bottle components. For instance, the bottles can go in the larger lower basket while the nipples and smaller pieces can go in the upper basket. Put on the lid and place the sterilizer in the microwave for five minutes. Let the sterilizer cool off for three minutes before removing it from the microwave and using the tongs to take out all the pieces. You can use the lid as a drying rack thanks to its interior drainage grooves.

This can also be used for cold-water sterilization.

Why Is It Useful?

Many parents put bottle sterilizers on their baby registries, and this one is a great option. Because you can use it in the microwave, it makes it really easy for new parents to use as opposed to trying to sterilize baby bottles over boiling water on the stovetop. It's large enough to hold a good amount of bottles and bottle components, and we like that it becomes a drying rack, too. Plus, you get a bottle with it, and MAM bottles are really good quality.

Who It’s For

The MAM Microwave Steam Sterilizer is for parent use only, but it can be used for sterilizing baby bottles for babies from birth and up.

What To Be Aware Of

The products that come with the Microwave Steam Sterilizer are BPA-free.

This is designed especially for use with MAM products, though you can use other bottles, nipples, and baby products according to the manufacturers' instructions.
