PRODUCT: Philips Avent Express Electric Steam Steriliser (

DESCRIPTION: An electric steam steriliser for sterilisation of baby bottles and breast pumps, which consists of a main sterilising unit, detachable lid, two upper baskets, bottle rack, lower basket, central stem, cord and plug, bottle tongs, brush and a water pitcher. Includes 2 x Avent bottles (260ml/9oz).

GOOD POINTS: The Avent steam steriliser is a fast and effective way of sterilising infant feeding bottles and Avent breast pumps. It is really easy to use and comes with a good set of operational instructions - simply pour 200ml into the base, load and switch on. It takes about 8 minutes to complete.

The sterilisation unit has a big capacity and at a squeeze can take up to six bottles, including all the extra bottle components which come with some other bottle brands (e.g. Dr Brown). The entire central stem (with attached racks) lifts out of the main body of the steriliser, and can be placed back in once filled, which makes the loading of components much easier.

There is a specially designed tray for the ISIS breast pump, and also a rack which transforms into a detachable basket for cleaning smaller items in the dishwasher.

BAD POINTS: It is a fairly large unit, and as a result is bulky to pack if going away or on holiday. The lid is not attached to the main sterilising body so it does not always keep things securely inside when traveling. The fact that the lid is not hinged also means that condensation runs over the work surface when the steriliser is first opened.

PRICE: Approx. £45
