The Avent Express sterilizes baby bottles in the microwave. It will steam six 4-ounce Avent brand baby bottles with water. The portability of this sterilizer makes it easy to tote when traveling. After heating the Avent Express sterilizer in the microwave, if you leave it closed, the bottles inside will remain sterile for up to 24 hours.
Remove the lid from the sterilizer and place the baby bottles upside down over the holders. Set the nipples with the open side down in the bottle cap holders.
Fill the measuring cup included with the sterilizer to the line with water.
Pour the water into the steamer.
Snap the lid onto the steamer and clamp down the side handles to lock it in place.
Heat the Avent Express on high power for two minutes for a 1100-watt or higher power oven; four minutes for an 850- to 1000-watt oven; or six minutes for lower-power microwave ovens.
Remove the Avent Express from the microwave and wait for two minutes for it to cool slightly before removing the lid. Keep your face and hands away from the escaping steam.
Lift out the bottles and nipples with the tongs included with the sterilizer.
Dry any steam condensation off the exterior of the bottles with a clean towel before use.
