It seems like you would need a bottle sterilizer even if you are going to breast feed your baby. In your mind, you are thinking I need the bottles to be clean and sterile. I am not saying they don't need to be. What does need to happen is a different way to clean and sterilize them. There are quick bags for the microwave that do the same thing this item does. We literally openned the item and used it once and it sat on the shelve and then in the garage from then on. There are more important items that you can spend your money on then waste it on a microwave bottle sterilizer. If you would like a pro, it does do a quick clean job of cleaning the bottles. And it does hold quiet a few bottles. We even put the pacificers in to get cleaned. If you are an eco-friendly person then this could be for you as well because it will use less water and energy then the dishwasher. And it only takes two minutes to clean.
