That all aside, can anyone remind me how much water to put in? I misplaced my manual and can't find instructions anywhere online. I know to microwave 4-5 min. I may just have to gauge it as to what I remember the levels to be when I used it in 2011. However, any help on exact amt of water is greatly appreciated.
Side note: If you don't wash the bottle parts completely (which can happen when tired new moms try washing a million things!) they come out a little smelly. The sterilizer doesn't actually clean the milk out of the bottles. Duh, right? I know, but I thought it was worth mentioning in case this happens to others. It's not the sterilizer's fault if the bottles smell.
The only thing I'd change is the lid. It doesn't latch. This doesn't interfere with function, but having a lid that doesn't budge while I'm trying to move it with one hand would be nice.
I saw a negative review about this sterilizer and Medela bottles. First of all, you can't fault Born Free products for not working with other brands. They were designed to accommodate their own bottles. That being said, I have used this sterilizer with my Medela bottles and all the pumping accessories (except the tubes, of course). There are four holes around the center peg. I usually place the valves (with membranes attached) over these holes. The bottles do tilt a little since they have narrow openings, but they remain upright enough for steam to enter the bottles.Read more ›
