Comparison Between Steam and UV Sterilizer

Although bottles and teats may look clean after wash, they might still carry germs/bacteria which cannot be seen by the naked eye. It is essential to sterilise your feeding equipment in order to protect your baby.

Two of the most common sterilisation methods are steam sterilisation and UV sterilisation. Steam sterilisers use high energy steam generated from water to disinfect, whilst UV sterilisers use UV germicidal light kill germs/bacteria. Below are the comparisons between steam sterilizer and UV sterilizer.
