Nuk Micro Express
Sterilizing bottles can be time consuming especially when you are working at home, but the Nuk Micro Express make it easy. You can pop then inside the bowl and into the microwave, or if like myself you don’t like to use microwaves, you can simply pour over boiling water and close the lid. I like to give them a quick wash first and then steam them, but this little sterilizer certainly is a time saver.
