  1. #1

    Default Does anyone have a Avent Microwave Steriliser?

    And if so how long is it supposed to go in the microwave for? I went on the website to find out and it referred me to some UK website and it said 4 minutes but Im sure I remember seeing about 8 mins on the box (Ive thrown the box out hence the question)
    Thanks Heaps

    Yeah I got the 2, 4 and 6 minute thing but I just didnt think it was enough. My microwave is 1200w and it didnt seem to be getting hot enough.

    I used an avent one and used to put it in for 5 minutes. it said either 4 or 7 mins depending on wattage of microwave so i just thought id go for 5 mins, not sure why.......DS has never had gastro or anything so it must have done the job!

    I only ever did 5 mins, mainly because I dont know how many watts the microwave is & was too lazy to look for the compliance plate !!! 5 mins has worked for me though.

    the trick is not to take them out the sterillizer straight away and the process continues for a few minutes after the microwave has finished. So put it for around 4-5 mins and then leave it for 5 mins before opening!
    HTH and good luck

    My box had the same info that Rachel put up, my mike is 1100 watt so I do it for four minutes, and leave it in the mike for two minutes, as instructed.
