We spoke to these real parent testers to get their review...
How did this product make your life easier?
Hannah: The product is very convenient and versatile. It can used for sterilising, not just bottles but teethers or even electrical toys and breast pump parts. Items are ready for use straight after sterilisation and don’t need cooling or drying which is great when baby is crying. There is no need for measuring water or descaling – especially as we live in a hard water area. It also saves on energy as there is no need to boil the kettle.
Shamim: This product has definitely made my life easier. I can now have the peace of mind knowing my babies bottles and other things like teething toys have been sterilised with ease and not using water. I keep my steriliser in my bedroom as there’s more room in there than the kitchen and it saves me going downstairs during the night.
Abi: With being able to sterilise in just 3 mins and use straight away, this is a god send. It’s compact enough to take out if you were visiting somewhere with plug access. My only criticism is that for the price it feels quite basic/flimsy and having all bottle parts separated means you can’t actually fit very much in the steriliser for everyday use.
Would you recommend this to other parents?
Ashleigh: I would recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum because of the chic design (it wouldn't stand out or look odd in a kitchen or elsewhere). It is convenient and saves a lot of time compared to other sterilising methods. It is very transportable providing there is a plug available wherever you travel.
Laura: It makes life easier because it's so quick and easy to use. It only takes 3mins which is just no time at all really. It is very portable and you only need the steriliser and cable to plug it in. It is unbelievably lightweight and looks very stylish unlike all other sterilisers I have seen.
Samantha: I would recommend this product to other mums because it is quick and easy to use, sterilises quickly. It is easy to keep clean, it has a large storage capacity as well so can do quite a few bottles. You can also sterilise other baby items like teething rings in there too. It is a big product but very lightweight and has a zip to close it and a handle making it very portable.
Would you choose this product above all others on the market?
Jennifer: We would definitely chose this over more conventional methods of sterilising. As a scientist I understand how it works and am very happy with the safety of it. I love the size of the product, it will easily fit all of my pump parts as well as a bottle so at the press of a button all the equipment I need is sterilised and safe in 3 minutes. It also looks really smart and fits nicely in the nursery, kitchen or living room. It is also a lot easier when travelling as you just need a socket to plug it in. I think one of the best things though is that you can also use it for sterilising your phone and tablet. This feels particularly important considering the current pandemic. We will definitely be recommending it to all of our friends.
Hannah: I like very much the stylish leather design. The external surface is however still very durable and importantly also wipe clean design. My toddler has thrown it on the floor a few times but I don’t need to worry about it getting cracked or damaged. The product is priced lower compared with other similar sterilisers on the market and I feel good value once you factor in energy savings and not having to buy copious bottles of Milton.
Shamim: I think I would choose this product over others on the market for the reasons I’ve given and also I like how it’s fast - only 3 minutes and then don’t have to worry about the bottles being hot (which is a good safety feature) or being wet. Also can use for sterilising expressing equipment so it’s not just for bottles.
What changes would you make to this product?
Abi: The ability to charge and use on the go without the need to plug in the unit would be helpful. It feels a little small for everyday use but not quite a portable unit for sterilising on the go either. Otherwise this is a great sterilising product which looks very stylish on the countertop or on the go.
Ashleigh: There is nothing I would change about the Nuby UV steriliser because I feel as though Nuby have identified the gap in the sterilsing market that other brands have not noticed and they have filled that to a high standard. If I had to comment on one thing it would be that the price could probably be reduced as it is in quite a high price bracket and could be inaccessible to some.
Laura: The product is slightly more expensive but I guess that is a compromise for the convenience of the product and all the great points and features it has. Although it does only take 3 minutes and it is a great feature, it would be great if you capsule sterilise more than 2 bottles at a time, but if this was to happen I don’t know if it would compromise the size and weight of the product, which again are things that make the product so good.
