Hi Said, It's good to hear this product is to your liking! And we can imagine you prefer a quiet, silent night over a yelling wife. ;) Thanks for sharing your feedback! Kind regards, The Philips Australia team

Absolutely fab product! Best steriliser used for both of my girls!

Easy to use, lightweight. Spacious and such a time saver, so quickly sterilised. Can use one handed if need to, there has been many a time I’ve needed to load one handed and remove from microwave whilst holding my new born. There is excess water in the lid from steam that will transform when it is undone and taken off so just take care when putting the lid back on as there is risidual water which can drip everywhere if you forget.

Hi Kirsty, it's great you liked our Avent Microwave this much. Enjoy! Kind Regards, The Philips Australia Team

Needs a safety review

Great and easy product. The main issue I have is the lack of safety when it comes to burns. There should be a handle on the lid for easy removal. I have burnt my fingers too many times from not removing the lid quick enough. How this was not considered during product development baffles me

Easy and efficient

I love my microwave steriliser for my little ones bottles. Just pop in 200ml water, all the teats, lids and bottles and 4 minutes in the microwave and your done! So much easier than others I have used. Easy to wash and wipe clean and store and it fits 4 of my bottles at a time.

Hello Laura, We liked reading your review. It's good to read that you're a fan of the steriliser. :) Thanks for sharing your feedback and we wish you a nice weekend. Kind regards, The Philips Australia team

Easy to use

Very easy to use and fits other branded bottles in it, would be nice to have a handle on the outside especiallly when ya have a baby in the other arm but thats just me being a little picky. Great purchase and will last a lifetime which is a bonus


Easy to use, fits multiple brands of bottle

One of the best baby purchases I made. Quick and easy to use (4 minutes in microwave), fits both Medela and Avent bottles as well as other items such as pacifiers . Saved me a lot of time , no need to boil bottles. Would buy again , good price

Hey there, Mary. That's awesome! Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We're very pleased to hear you got such a good use out of the SCF271/06. Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team.


I have had no problems with the microwave steraliser. Ive used it twice a day for 5 months and works perfectly. Hubby tends to overfill but seems to still work well. Fits 4 large avent bottles and accessories comfortably. Ive used it also for medela pumping equipment, pigeon bottles and now spoons and teething equipment.

It was useful watching utube videos to see how to stack the microwave

Highly recommend the microwave steraliser

Hi Becky, Thank you for taking the time to write a nice and constructive feedback. It's great to hear how you and your partner are enjoying the microwave steriliser so much. We do recommend to only put Avent products in the steriliser. If you have any questions regarding this matter, please call us at: 1300 363 391. Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team

Very easy to use

We got the microwave steriliser as part of an aven kit with bottles etc. We really love the microwave steriliser by Avent. Only takes 4 minutes in the microwave takes all the bottles dummies and breast pump. I put everything in even dummies and bottles from other brands have fitted in. I have used it according to instructions however the bottom has changed colours even though I wash it regularly. i have tried everything to get rid of the staining on the plastic but does not seem to go away. It only seem to be on the bottom otherwise we have been very happy with the steriliser.

Dear Paula, Thank you for your review and we're very happy to read that our Microwave Steam works that well for you. We're happy for you that other brands fit in as well, but please know that we advise to use AVENT bottles only in the unit. Regarding the discolouring of the bottom of the bottles, we'd like to advise you to contact our Customer Service Team at 1300 364 474. Our agents will be able to assist you. Thanks again, it's much appreciated that you took the time to spread your enthusiasm. :) Kind regards, The Philips AVENT Australia Team

Convenient and easy to use.

Pretty happy with this sterilizer... We use medela bottles in it and they fit well but tend to fall over easily. Much better at space saving than an electric sterilizer & really simple to use... The only negative is if as a sleep deprived new mum/dad you forget to put water in it and you blow up the microwave :( we learnt that the hard way!

Hi Emi, thank you for taking the time to write this review of our microwave steam sterilizer. Please know that we take occurrences like these very seriously. Therefore we’ve sent you a personal message and we hope to be in touch soon. Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team

Good sterilizer product

Easy to use which comes with a thong inside, can fit non avent bottles. Love the lid and it's compact. Good product cos it's handy and convenient way to sterilise rather than boiling in water for 5 mins.
Just find it a little bit difficult to arrange the large bottle but it's okay..

Good to hear you like the sterilizer Sakura. If you need more information about how to use our AVENT products, you can contact our customer service department: 1300 364 474. Philips Care Team

Easy to use

Very easy to use. Fits a lot of different size and brands of bottles and feeding accessories into this steam steriliser. Very expensive compared to other brands which do the same. I bought this on special for $40 at target and would have bought a different brand if not on special.
Fits lots of feeding accessories

Terrific Product

This is a terrific little steriliser that is no fuss and easy to use. (even my husband can use it without being confused)

I rate this steriliser very highly, can fit a few bottles and in 4 minutes everything is sterile. Super basic and stops you from buying those awful bleach smelling tablets. I can get my bottles sterilised and a bottle to my babies mouth in 5 minutes. Definitely recommend.
East to use, very simple instructions and fast sterilising
Nothing. it's perfect.

Hi PrahranM, Thank you for your review. . We are so glad that you are enjoying your Philips AVENT Microwave Steam Steriliser! Kind regards, The Philips AVENT Team.

Hassle free sterilizing

So easy to use and you are 100% sure your bottles are sterile. No need to boil and look at the clock.
Just fill with water and bottles and leave it in microwave for 4 mins...
Bottles stay sterile if sterilizer is unopened unlike when boiling them. It came with a bottle, a clip to put the teat together without having to touch it and an orthodontic dummy...
Hassle free

Hi @sb2012 Thank you for the review. Happy to hear you're enjoying your Philips AVENT Steam Steriliser. Kind regards The Philips AVENT Team.

Saves me sooo much work

Just had it delivered today, and I already used it twice! The simple steps to sterilize anything any time, just like loading a dishwasher, mean I will be able to stick to proper sterilisation and not skip it because of laziness or worries of boiling dry. I use no other avent products, but this is certainly a good buy!
Makes sterilizing so fast and easy

Hi @Twshirley Great to hear the Philips AVENT Microwave Steam Steriliser has made the sterilisation process easier for you. Kind regards The Philips Teamwill this steriliser hold madela brand bottles?Hi M.Bow, Thank you for your enquiry. The Microwave Steam Steriliser has been designed to hold four (4) Philips AVENT bottles. It can also hold other bottles such as Medela however you may need to reconfigure how you stack the bottles into the steriliser to ensure they fit and sterilise the bottles effectively. Please refer to the FAQs on our website on some ideas on how to load bottles into the steriliser - http://www.philips.com.au/c/avent-baby-preparing-for-feeding/microwave-sterilizer-scf282_01/prd/?t=support#rdy. Kind regards.

Best Steriliser!

When a friend came to visit & saw how long it was taking me to sterilise all my "stuff" she went out to get us lunch & returned with this: at first I was a little offended, now I LOVE her for it!
This is fast & easy to use. (3min's & I'm done!)
It does all my medela bottles & also the parts to the swing breast pump that I use.
Recommed it to all!

Very easy to use

Very convenient and easy to use. I use it up to 7 times a day to sterilize my pump and Medela bottles. It take me 2 minutes to sterilize everything. It very easy to clean as well. I had an electric sterilize before and threw it away after a week. It was bulky and I had to clean it and dry after each use. I think the Philips one is a bit expensive and I don't use bottle which was included. Now I have been using it for about two months and it looks like new.
Convinient and easy to use
Expensive, don't need Avent bottle

Perfect and convenient

It takes 8 minutes and your bottles are ready to go Fast and convienant No fussing with tablets and containers and we are all busy mums these days why wouldn't we want something to make our lives just that easy. Not very expensive and when you add up what you would spend in tablets works out cheaper in the long run
Fast and eady

Super simple standard steriliser.

This steriliser is made of sturdy plastic for the bottom, top and inner. Its very simple to use, just pour water in and put in the microwave. You do have to be careful when taking the steriliser out of the microwave though because it will be hot and the inside will be full of steam. Even though its avent brand we managed to use many size of bottles inside it including mam and coles. Ours also came with a bottle, dummy and bottle brush, so it was a great starter kit. Plus when we had issues understanding some information and contacted philips someone called us right back with all the info we could need. I highly recommend this steriliser and company for their customer service.
Easy to use, customer service

Great sterilizer

This is so easy to use! and a great combo with the avent bottles.. they fit perfectly and stays sterile , also comes with free bottles which is a bonus!.. after buying 3 other popular brands i finally bought this one and its amazing. will definately buy the same again and reccomend it to all my friends
Compact, lid locks shut!

Questions & Answers

How long you put the avent microwave steamer in the microwave
1 answer
Hi Silvana, Good question, thanks for submitting it here. The exact length of the cycle depends on the wattage of your microwave. 2 minutes at 1200-1850W, 4 minutes at 850-1100W, 6 minutes at 500-800W. We hope this answers your question. Let us know if any other questions pop up alright? We're here for you. :) Kind regards, The Philips Australia team

Can i serialize diffrent brand bottles than avent ?
1 answer
Hi Dominika. Thanks for asking your question here, it's a good one. :) Generally any other brand/products that can be submerged in boiling water can be sterilized in an Avent steam sterilizer. Does that answer your question? Kind regards, The Philips Australia team

If my microwave is not functioning, can I put boiling hot water in the Steriliser and will it do the job?
1 answer
Thanks for taking the time to reach out to us here, Dee. We're sorry to hear your microwave isn't working anymore. Unfortunately, pouring boiling water in the sterilizer doesn't guarantee the same result as using the microwave. Therefore, we advise against using the sterilizer in that fashion. If you have any further questions or comments, please don't hesitate to reach out to us on one of our social media channels. There, we're available 24/7 and happy to help. Alternatively, you could reach out to us by phone: AU 1300 363 391 NZ 0800 658 224 Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team
