Nuby Natural Touch Steriliser & Dryer Review

Sterilisers… big bulky things that make a mess of your worktop and scold your hands, right? Not any more my friends, not any more…

In my household sterilising is an event, it’s something I like to have OCD control over, sanitising my hands and dettol-ing down the sides (even though if he drops his dummy I simply lick it and put it back in his mouth) I like having the control and feeling I am doing the best for my boy and I think that stems from our ongoing battle of trying to soothe his colicky traits and temporary lactose intolerance. I like to rule out any other factors that can upset his stomach.

One thing that I don’t love is the mess sterilisers make – no matter how quick I’ve been too dry my wooden worktops, they’ve received water damage from the mess of the steriliser and the bottles dripping all over the sides. I also didn’t realise how the bottles will take your skin off for a while after being sterilised due to being so bloody hot!

When I was asked to review the Nuby Natural Touch Steriliser & Dryer I was really impressed – I consider myself a steriliser connoisseur as I’m often looking at them on the Mothercare website (yes motherhood has dominated my brain slightly completely) and this is something I had never seen before. This was impressive.

A few days later along came the steriliser of dreams with its fancy design that really isn’t an eyesore like other sterilisers. I like that the majority of it isn’t see through as I find this can make things look more cluttered.

The first thing that really impressed me was how roomy it was, Rory has Dr Browns bottles and anyone that has come across these bottles will know they have about 1,000,000,000 different parts (okay its 6 parts but you get my drift) so fitting 5 bottles, all the parts AND dummies has been impossible in the past!

So anyway – off we went with our first cycle – there are 3 options, 1. Just a normal sterilising cycle, 2. Sterilise and quick dry so the bottles are mainly dry but have a little moisture and 3. Sterilise and full dry. I went full dry and I’ve never gone back my friends.

Full dry means no more guess work trying to see how much water I am putting in (cheers Dr Browns for not printing the numbers, the steam makes it impossible to see the transparent markings), no more scolded fingers and more wet surfaces. Also for pump mothers it means no more watered down breast milk.

    This sounds like an absolute life saver! I'd have definitely bought this if we'd used bottles from the start, and now we are using bottles, I totally get what you mean about sterilising the units and there still being steam and moisture in the bottles, it can get so frustrating haha! Love this 🙂 xx

    Oh wow i wish they had these when i had my first, they didnt even have microwave ones then and we had to make do with those buckets of water and sterilising tablets! This looks like such a space saver too!

  • The Smallest Of Things

    Oh I love that it dries them too! That's the worst bit about sterilising!!

  • I wish i had this, when Leanora was younger, this sounds like such a great machine plus it would of been better than standing over the cooker bioling her bottles lol!

    We use the tommy tippee ones and we have a couple of dr brown bottles – when we need these sterilised we can only do two at a time, nightmare! Love that this one dries them too!

    So wish I'd known about this when Henry was tiny, will definitely be looking into this for no.2

  • This sounds so handy! I can't remember what we used now but this sounds far superior! Katie x

  • Could not agree more, sterilisers are so gross and bulky. All the water everywhere, the burns, everything you are so spot on. I remember when we had Noah being so shocked bottles didn't come out dry – like how silly was I. This is genius, Nuby have hit it on the head and I bet other brands will follow suit now.

  • We didn't use a steriliser when we switched to bottles for little N, we just soaked everything in water and milton fluid, but I will definitely look at this as an option for the next mini Amphlett as it sounds so much easier!

  • I've just got rid of my Tommee Tippee steriliser and swapped for a milton cold water one. I was so fed up of the all the fuss when it came to sterilising the bottles and constantly scolding my hands as Ava would demand a bottle right after setting the thing going! I'd love one that would dry the bottles too!

  • Amazing Nuby technology -my neice often struggles with college a new house and a new baby -all 3 done as a silo songle mum
    She'd love love the simplicity not to mention the style of this beauty
    More time to spend with esmay (and college ) would be heaven for her at the moment
    Full of admiration for both my neice and TOMY x

  • This sounds so much better than the sterilser we used to use for Jasmine. I hated having to wait ages for it to cool down. The Nuby one isn't an eyesore like our one was either.
