Whether you’re bottle-feeding occasionally or exclusively, a bottle steriliser is going to be your time-saving bestie during the busy first year with baby.
Bottle sterilisers are compact units that use UV light or steam to effectively remove germs and bacteria from feeding accessories. Not only do they allow you to deep-clean multiple items at once, but you also have peace of mind knowing that baby’s favourite bottles and teats are germ-free and ready to go when hunger cues are thrown your way.
To help keep baby’s bottles squeaky clean, we’ve scoured the country to find eight of the best bottle sterilising units available in Australia.
Types of bottle sterilisers available in Australia
Electric bottle sterilisers – With a small amount of water at their base, electric sterilisers generate steam at high temperatures to rid bottles and attachments of any nasties. They vary in volume but are generally ideal for families that have bottles on high rotation.
Microwave bottle sterilisers – Usually smaller than other units, microwave steam sterilisers are great for parents who are low on space. Being more portable than larger electric units, they’re also a fab solution for day trips and holidays.
UV bottle sterilisers – Ready to say goodbye to steam? UV sterilisers use ultraviolet technology to remove dangerous bacteria from bottles and other baby equipment, including toys and all those well-chomped teethers.
Portable bottle sterilisers – These handy units make it easier to feed baby with hygienic equipment when you’re on the go. Also called travel sterilisers, they’re small enough to fit in the nappy bag and often suitable for either cold-water or microwave sterilising.
