Babyologist Review: Tommee Tippee Closer To Nature Electric Steriliser

We are SO happy to be able to say that we are now official Babies R Us Babyologists!!
The first product that we have been sent to review is the fantastic Tommee Tippee Electric Steam Steriliser which is totally BPA free. It’s RRP is £29.99 which is a great price for such a useful piece of equipment.
It really is a must have gadget for any parents who are formula, combination or expressed milk feeding. Basically, anyone who uses a bottle (although it is also very useful for sterilising other baby equipment too).

The box the steriliser comes in has loads of handy information on it and there is an instruction manual as well. Not that you’ll need it, as it’s so easy to use!

The slimline shape of the steriliser is great and means that it’ll easily fit on kitchen surfaces without taking up too much room.

It comes with a handy set of tongs to stop those fingers getting burnt/to keep the bottle parts sterile and a mini bottle you can use as a measuring cup to fill the steriliser up with. It has a handy dotted line where you need to fill water up to for use in the steriliser. There was a 0-3 month soother in the box as well. The Tommee Tippee soothers are great.

The inner section consists of two levels of trays for putting your bottle parts on. You can comfortably fit in 6 Closer to Nature bottles. I also found it easy to fit in 4 of the Advanced Comfort bottes in at one time, even with all their fancy air vent gadgets that come with them.


It is super efficient and sterilises bottles within 5 minutes! Much quicker than using a sterilising solution. You literally just press one button, which will light up Orange and then go out when it’s ready.

It is recommended to leave the bottles for a few minutes to let them cool down a little before getting them out. If the lid is kept on, the bottles will stay sterile for up to 24 hours which is a great amount of time. The lid itself is useful as it can be used as a sterile surface for making bottles up on if turned upside down. Are there no limits to this sterilisers usefulness?!

When it comes to cleaning the steriliser it is super easy due to the few simple parts that make up the product. They come apart very easily and can be washed quickly.

– easy to use
– easy to clean
– fits in well in the kitchen
– great price

– genuinely can’t think of any!


I don’t know what we would of done without this steriliser. It really does make the whole sterilising process, that some parents can be a bit anxious about, so easy. If you are debating which one to go for, make it this one.

Next on our Tommee Tippee hit list…The Perfect Prep Machine. I really, really wish we had gotten one of these before Isla came along. I can keep wishing haha…
