I had another microwavable sterilizer prior to this one that worked well, but it did not hold nearly as much as this one. I am currently bottle-feeding twin boys (2 1/2 months old) breast milk because they were in the NICU for three weeks and were bottle-fed from the time they were born. So as you could imagine I do a lot of sterilizing and this product makes my life much easier. It holds up to six bottles and has a basket to hold other odds and ends (nipples, pacifiers, lids, etc.) This is a wonderful product!

Comments about Playtex 1001354 NEW Playtex SmartSteam 3-in-1 Microwave Sterilizer:
I breastfeed or pump breast milk for someone else too feed my three-week old son, and this sanitizer has been one of the most helpful tools. I handwash his bottles, pumping accessories, nipples, pacifiers, and use this steamer to sanitize them in five minutes. It's quick and easy to use, even at 3am! My mom and I boiled bottles for a few days when I came home from the hospital and my newborn was having difficulty latching on to the breast. Both she and I are so delighted to have this easier way to sanitize. She said many times how much she wished she had one like it when we were babies. It's a worthy investment for how much time and hassle you save. It works well - just leave it in the microwave to cool briefly, and don't pick it up or open it with a baby in your hands, because hot steam comes out.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I absolutely love this! I use it twice a day and it is SO much easier then having to boil water and waiting for it to get done. All you have to do is put a little water in it, stick the stuff you want to sterilize and pop it in the microwave for 5 mins! Only thing that I don't like about it is that you can't sterilize other bottles. It will only fit Playtex.

4 oz Bottles
from Rosenberg, TX, United States
I used this when my babe was first born and eating from the 4oz bottles. It was perfect! Until she started eating from bigger bottles, then the top doesn't snap closed. But with the smaller bottles, I got everything I needed cleaned all at one time. I do still use the dishwasher rack though.
Safe an healthier
from Michigan, United States
This product makes me feel I'm doing what's best for my baby! I feel it does what it says an is safer an healthier then just regular washing bottles. As moms we all want what's best for our little ones!! I would definently recommend to any mom or moms to be!!

Very simple product, but convenient and definitely time-saving. I had the AVENT bottles. They are quite wide, so I was worried that they won't fit into this model steamer, but they fit quite well if you put them in upside down. The steamer indeed fits all six bottles well, both small and large. I have packed in both, all 6 large and all 6 small, and the middle dish washer compartment still fits in alright. The middle compartment is quite spacious, fits nipples and breast pump parts well. Good, worry free, time saving product. The water line is white and hard to see, but once you get used to it, you just do it by memory. I fill it up with water just below the line. It boils faster that way and steams better and it never boiled out on me. There is still plenty of water in there after the steaming is done, so be careful not to tilt it when taking it out of the microwave.
By organized mom
I bought this because I was tired of boiling water and as a mom you are not able to always keep an eye on the stove. I thought this was a great alternative because you don't have to keep an eye on it. you fill it and put it in the microwave and when you get a chance you get back to it. The only reason why I didn't give it 5 stars is because the inside has a fill line for where you should add the water too and it is very difficult to see since it;s white letter on a white background. I have no idea why they didn't make this a different color. Great otherwise.
Good and practical

Great easy to use sterilizer. Fits many six bottles on the two sides and has a convenient middle rack to store smaller items. Only problem I have with sterilize is how long it takes to dry off the bottles - too much condensation and bottles do not seem to dry completely even after waiting for hours. Would highly recommend to any parent.

I got it at my baby shower, had it on the registry. Is really fast to clean all the new nipples and bottles, and you can use it in the dish washer and in the microwave.
Easy to use
By First time mom

Works great - and easy to use. Whether you choose to sterilize before every use or once a week, this product serves the purpose. I wasn't sure what to expect with all that you read about sterilizing bottles and nipples. The instructions for the Playtex bottles and nipples recommend sterilizing only once a week. That is what I currently do. When my daughter goes to daycare I will probably start doing it more often. However, like I said, even if you decide to do this everyday, it's very easy and takes only a few minutes. I also liked the fact that it is a dryer rack as well. All you have to do is pop it in the microwave for a couple minutes and it's done. Also has lift out baskets to allow for washing in the dishwasher. Great product!
