Tested by mum Nancy Paterson for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

It's perfect for taking away with you! I took it with us when we went to stay with my parents and it was fab! It's very easy to use and does the job well. It looks good and is designed well. I was very impressed and will be taking it on holiday with us this summer.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

It is easy to use and looks good. It made sterilising my babies bottles really quick and easy. I don't like the smell of sterilising tablets and don't want to have to take my big microwave steriliser away with me when I go away for a few days - I have enough baby things I have to take as it is! I was confident they were sterilised properly and would definitely use it again.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

I wouldn't change anything - it's perfect! Just the right size for one bottle and not too big to transport. It's really simple to use and a clever design. I like the flat side of the steriliser so it can lie flat in the microwave and not roll around!

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

I really liked how compact the steriliser was. I found it the perfect size for me and my baby as we mainly breastfeed and only occasionally use bottles, I could see how some mums who have more bottles to sterilise would prefer to have a bigger steriliser. It would be useful to pack in your changing bag for a day out if you needed to sterilise things on the go but maybe a bit small to take on holiday for example for bottle fed babies. I also like that you have the option to use it as a cold water steriliser or a microwave one.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

The steriliser is easy to pack in a changing bag and transport. If you don't have access to a microwave you can use it as a cold water steriliser.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

I've noticed that some of Milton's other sterilisers come with a few sterilising tablets to get you started before having to buy a pack. It would be useful if a few were included with the steriliser.

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

This travel steriliser is a brilliant product. Fantastic for nights away at a friend’s house or when you are going on holidays. It’s much easier to pack/carry than an electric steam steriliser or a large microwave steriliser (which you then have to ensure where you are going has a microwave!).

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

I like using this steriliser when away as I have an older child and by not needing steam I don't have to worry about my older son potentially burning himself if he touches it. It’s less bulky than traditional sterilisers which take up valuable packing space when going on holidays.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

While sterilising time is relatively quick, it would be great if there was a slightly bigger version which would accommodate 2 bottles at once in the solution for families who have twins/triplets etc.

2015 – Bottle Feeding Award

Milton’s Solo Travel Steriliser is not only great for holidays or day a day out but also as a quick ‘n’ easy to gadget to use around the house. It has dual purpose functionality, sterilising not only bottles but teething toys, pacifiers and other small bits – in the microwave or with cold water and a tablet.

The steriliser is a convenient travel size but it does have a tendency to leak (ever so slightly) when not standing upright – otherwise, a really useful, value-for-money product. 

2014 – Shortlisted for 'Best Travel Product Under £25' Award

The Milton Solo Travel Steriliser is designed for ‘out and about’ travelling. It’s water tight and easy to store but can be a bit of a faff to use. It fits only one bottle and teat (not the bottle cap) and requires a quarter of a Milton tablet for the sterilisation process, which is fine, except the tablets don’t snap along the lines (annoying!) and it means carting around a container to store the rest of the tablet, or throwing it away (a waste!). There are also no tongs to remove items and it would be good if details re times and amounts were written on the steriliser somewhere as it is probably going to be used away from home.

However, it is worth remembering that the product is intended as a ‘solo steriliser’, presumably to save on space when travelling; there are other sterilisers on the market that would sterilise more than one bottle, if that’s your preference.

The steriliser can also be used in the microwave, which makes it versatile, and it does work quickly.

Highly recommended.

Reader Wendy Armstrong, 34, from Cumbria, mum to Aurora, tested the Milton Solo Travel Steriliser and says: 

‘Microwave for two minutes, plus cool-down time, or use as a cold water steriliser for 15 minutes. The contents stay sterile for 24 hours. It holds one bottle, so is handy for a short stay or overnight trip. It’s quite bulky, though, and didn’t fit into my change bag as easily as the others tested.’
