The microwave steam sterilizer from Dr. Brown’s is a classic, which gets the job done great. This model sterilizes up to four bottles, and is perfect for daily usage. This one is very easy to use, but the Dr. Brown’s sterilizer loses points for including nipples that don’t perfectly fit on the bottles. Other than that, this one is reliable and ideal as any.
Another very easy sterilizer is the Philips AVENT Microwave Steam Sterilizer. Holding four bottles, this one has delightfully simple operation, but takes up a lot of space in a cupboard or countertop, and is too large for smaller microwaves. If you’re not short on space, this may be the perfect model for you.
One classic is the Dr. Brown’s Bottle Warmer. Equipped with an alarm, this product works fast and effectively, delivering heat to where you need it. Lots of people however report that this model can burn milk, so do be cautious with this one and avoid scalding your baby’s snack, which leaves a nasty stench in the whole house.
The Bluetooth-enabled Baby Brezza Safe and Smart Bottle Warmer lets you actually use the warmer from the user interface of a nicely-designed mobile app- just put in the water and bottle, step back, and use the app to finish the process. If looking into a weird, small, potentially poorly-designed digital readout multiple times a day sounds like a headache for you, the Baby Brezza could be a godsend.
One great travel warmer is the Munchkin Travel Car Baby Bottle Warmer. Taking 15 minutes to warm up any sized bottle, the Munchkin is great when you’re on the move. This can be tricky if you use liner bags inside your bottles, but otherwise, this is a reliable model if you have patience, as 15 minutes is a fast day for the Munchkin, and this is still at the slow end of what’s available out there.
