Being the very first baby bottle sterilizer in the market that incorporates sterilizing, drying and storing function all in one device, and coming from the brand that produces one of the bestselling ever and top rated UV sterilizer, you know you're off with a good start with the Wabi Baby Electric Steam Sterilizer & Dryer.
This is the new Plus version where you don't need to air dry your sterilized bottles and worry about it reversing the effect of sterilizing anymore.
Also, it means less cluttering on your countertop because you no longer need a separate drying rack.
You see, the Wabi Baby keeps its content sterilized (and dry) over the span of 12 hours by running the drying mode every 3 hours for 10 minutes. It will do this 3 times so you can keep your objects nice and dry inside the chamber for 12 hours.
Speaking of its chamber, Wabi Baby's a leader and winner in both capacity and ease of use. While it may not hold as many bottles as Eccomum or Bololo's, 8 bottles of any brand is actually pretty impressive, given it isn't as new a model as the latter two.
It is very easy to load all your items into the chamber - just chuck them in. You don't have to carefully position each and every item to make sure they fit - the bigger basket now allows you to sterilize everything from bottles to breast pump parts, pacifiers to kid’s dinnerware etc.
In fact, an accessory tray is provided for your small accessories and an extra plate rack is even provided for more convenient uses with the sterilizer.
There just one thing to note: make sure your items are not blocking the airflow. Ensure that and you have nothing to worry about as the Wabi Baby will dry everything you can fit inside.
Which really, isn't that much of a problem because as you can see from the picture below, there is actually a bottle rack built in for you to insert your bottles in.
There is actually one more usage to the rack - it guides steam and hot air straight into the bottles to achieve high efficient sterilization and drying.
This is helped by a specially designed air rotator that is designed to increase the speed of air flow inside the chamber.
Not only does this ensure steam gets delivered 100% to the right places, it also drastically decreases the air drying time required in the next step.
Speaking of which, you have 30, 45 and 60 minutes of drying time to choose from, depending on your load.
Just sterilizing alone will take between 8-15 minutes, again, depending on the capacity but if you choose both sterilizing and drying modes, the maximum time required is just 1 hour.
What we especially like about the Wabi Baby Sterilizer and Dryer is that it comes with a memory setting.
What this means is that this little device here will remember the last setting you use so if that's your preferred setting, you can get the exact same setting at the press of a button.
Another feature that we like is its 'One Button Descaling'.
You see, there is one downside that no bottle sterilizer can ever escape - mineral buildup.
With this feature, you get to skip a lot of steps. Just press the descaling button and it will do all the cleaning work.
For better results, we recommend getting the Wabi Baby Fast-Action Descaling Powder. That's it - the biggest maintenance issue with all sterilizers now solved with just a simple touch of a button.
The Wabi Baby Electric Steam Sterilizer & Dryer is definitely one of the best bottle sterilizer and dryer we have ever came across in the market, however, it is also pricier than many competitors'.
But know this - it is a 3-in-1 device, with each function and feature engineered and implemented in the highest quality.
Also, being one of the very few sterilizers that is microbiologically tested and approved by 3rd party lab to kill germs by 99.9%, you can have peace of mind that this is one safe machine for your baby products.
