Philips Avent Comfort Single Electric

SCF332/01 and SCF332/31
3.9 from 85 reviews

good value

It’s comfortable to use. Does it fairly quickly. Draws milk sufficiently. I used the pump about 3 times a week. Of all the pumps on the market I found the availability of parts the easiest to find, you can get them from Coles, baby shops and chemists.

Purchased in April 2018 for $249.00.

I love this pump

I was given a 2nd hand Medela by a friend and was never very happy with the small amount I'd pump each time. It ceased working one day when milk got into the motor and the troubleshooting didn't work. After comparing pumps and choosing this Avent one, I couldn't be happier. Expressing a lot more and finding it very easy to use and clean. I'm so happy with the purchase and the warranty provided. It also cannot fail in the way that the Medela did. Love it!

Purchased in February 2019 for $169.00.

Reliable and easy to use!

Very comfortable, sometimes needs to be re positioned to be effective, but this is no real big issue. Very easy to clean and operate. The battery setting when not plugged in seems to have some bugs, the pump will sometimes just stop pumping, but we don’t rely on the battery as a function so we love the pump!

Excellent pump

I really liked this pump. It is small, light weighted than the one I was using earlier.It is very comfortable to use and you really don't have to lean forward like with other pumps.I get good milk flow and can express a decent amount of milk with each pumping. Recommeded

Good starter breast pump!

This pump did the job for me. As a stay at home mum, I did not use it regularly and my son did not like to drink from the bottle when he was younger. I only pumped to get milk to mix with his food or when I needed to leave the house for an hour or two. This pump helped a lot when I had too much supply. Its cheap compared to other pumps.
My only issue with it was the material turns brownish or darker even with minimal use.

Hi there, Thanks for letting us know you like your AVENT breast pump. We're glad to hear the pump has helped you and your little one. And thanks for sharing your feedback as well, consider it noted. Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team

Works but very minimal output

This machine works but is quite uncomfortable I even tried the wider cushion and it just pinches
It also takes a very long time to get a small amount compared to other brands I’ve used.
Could just be that it’s not for me but would work great for someone else but my experience wasn’t terrible just not great.

Hi there, thanks so much for taking the time to share your experiences here. We're sad to hear you haven't had the most comfortable experience with the breast pump. The cushion is not supposed to feel pinchy or hurt in any way. Have you already been in contact with us about this issue? Otherwise, we invite you to reach out to us by phone (1300 363 391). There, we can assist you further. Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team

Alright product

It’s very comfortable to use but I felt when using it not very powerful in pumping. I felt it takes long time to pump but apart from that it’s good to travel with and easy to pack. Cleaning the product is easy, instructions are clear. It’s good value for money.

Hi there, Thank you very much for sharing your feedback with us about the Single Electric breast pump. We're glad to hear that you find it to be very comfortable to use, easy to clean and you find the instructions to be clear. Regarding the pumping, we'd like to remind you that the breast pump features a gentle stimulation mode and 3 pumping settings. When switched on, the pump automatically starts in gentle stimulation mode to get your milk flowing. Then you can choose from 3 pumping settings to make milk flow most comfortable for you. We hope this information has been helpful. Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team

Would buy again

So usually I use a spectra breast pump at home but when it became time to go back to work and I needed to pump I got this for in my car.
1.) I love how you really can sit in a normal way and still pump. My other pump leaves you sitting at that weird pump angle. This one does not.
2.) Batteries, can't go wrong. I've pumped 3 times and still have battery in my 4 double As but this will be the last test, how many pumps do you get on one set of batteries.
3.) It gets milk out, it isn't perfect, but it gets my milk into a bottle. ..purpose served

1.) Didn't matter to me cause I was in my car at work, but it is louder
2.) Really hard to clean, so many random pieces and grooves. Harder then my other pump to keep clean
3.) My coupons that came with unit expired in 2015...it is now 2017. Makes me wonder how long this pump sat around

Very average pump

This pump is loud and very average suction. I borrowed a friends Medela (which I was too cheap to buy) and it is way better and worth the extra $100 for regular uses. My Avent hand pump is fine for irregular uses, but not as efficient as the electric pumps

Good value

Used it once a day for 3months at a time. Have 2 little ones. Good value and flexible with either using it by power or battery. Felt no difference of power between the two options. Bit annoying sometimes to wash because there are so many pieces but overall good machine does the job with 3 different speeds.

Hi there, Lisa. Glad to hear you like the product and thanks for taking your time to write this review. We appreciate the valuable feedback. :) Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team

Fantastic pump... took the stress out of expressing!

Absolutely loved this pump. I found it really easy and comfortable to use. Fairly quite machine with 2 different settings so you can select how fast or slow you want to pump. Easy to pull apart for cleaning and great quality, I was able to use the same pump for both my children. I would definitely purchase this product again.

Hi Jess, We absolutely love to hear about your experience with the Single Electric pump. Ease, quietness and deciding at which pace you'd like to pump is exactly what we had in mind while designing this product. Happy you found your match! :) Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team

Such a life saver

We got this as a gift and I’m so glad we did. It made like a lot easier for me!

It’s very easy to use, light and easy to clean. My only negative is I found it leaks a little sometimes and I really couldn’t figure out how to fix that.

Will be using when we have number 2!

Loved this pump! Quick and quiet

This breast pump was super comfortable to use. It was easily able to be taken apart to clean and put back together. The pump itself is quiet yet really powerful. It also has different settings so that you are able to select how fast or slow you want to pump. Starts off with a let down pump as well to get you flowing. Loved it!

Hello there, Katie. Thanks for taking your time to write this review and glad to year you like it. :) Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team

Not strong enough

Unfortunately this item wasn't strong enough for me and I couldn't pump more then 40ml
Unlike the hospital grade (I tried the spectra version after my son was born) where I could get 70-90ml the device is comfortable and not too noise just didn't work for me. If I was more prepared I would of purchased the spectra even though it's dearer

Hi Skye, We appreciate the honest feedback, although we would've rather heard you were a big fan, obviously. Sorry to hear that the product didn't work for you! Thanks again for writing your review and we wish you all the best. Kind regards, The Philips Australia team

Does the job

Very expensive breast pump I bought it for $300 in 2015 and have used it both then and in 2017 after I had my second child.. it definitely does the job well, slowly but surely depending on how much milk you’re making, so it can be a bit time consuming considering its a single. Only major con for me was that is it is super noisy!!

Hi, Melina. Thank you for your valuable feedback. We're happy to hear the SCF332/01 worked so well for you. :) Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team.

Great Starter Pump

This is a good option for a once in a blue moon pump. I used this every day for 3 months as my baby didn't latch. I eventually found it wouldn't pump that well comparing to other brands. It was comfortable to use. I generally used this pump for about 20 minutes 5 times a day.
Easy to clean, just chuck it in steamer once a day then leave in fridge at the back after each pump (drs suggestions)
Yeah I would use it again but have found better pumps that pump more and are gentler.

I used this pump about 4 times a day every day between weeks 1 and 10 and it never failed. Has three settings plus a let down setting you can use it on which was good. I had significant trauma so had to express and it was still very comfortable. A little noisy but it didn’t bother me. I also used this in the car because it takes batteries and took it camping. I just wish I had bought a double for the amount I used it. Would recommend for an affordable pump.

Great pump

This pump was very comfortable to use and I never had an issue with it.
I used the machine for around 30 minutes several times a day and it worked great each time and for the time using it.
The product comes apart easy making cleaning each piece of the product easy.
I would definitely use this pump again being my first time breast feeding I didn’t have any issues.

A little disappointed

This product is easy to install and clean. However it is very loud. Can’t used it when others are asleep or baby is sleeping. So I had to go to another room and lock myself out when using it. I didn’t product a lot of milk back then. I found out my milk was wasted a lot in the pipe/straw. I gave up and I used hand pump into the bottle instead of this machine in the end. But it may be just my personal issue because I didn’t have enough milk.

Great product.

This machine rarely feels uncomfortable. All the accessories and attachments are fitted to the feeding bottles. It is easy to scrub and steam and hasn't aged while being kept very clean. In the beginning, it was used for longer periods and it remained comfortable the entire time it was used.

Questions & Answers

Can I use rechargeable 4 x 1.5V lithium batteries on the philips avent single electric breast pump, instead of the 4 x 1.2V Ni-MH batteries? My spouse feedback to me that using the rechargeable 4 x 1.2V Ni-MH batteries, the pump action was not as strong as when using the power adaptor.
