The 8 Best Vaporizers – Guidebook

A vaporizer can help you carefully disinfect your baby’s bottles so that there are no germs or bacteria that can harm your baby. With this device, you can also save a lot of time and nerves because you do not always have to boil the bottles individually. Since you do not need too much water, you also do something good for the environment.

To help you find the right vaporizer for you, we have created a checklist that informs you about all the important factors. The product recommendations will also help you find the right vaporizer.

Checklist For Vaporizers

Vaporizer And Sterilizer
  • Vaporizers and sterilizers are used to kill germs and bacteria.
  • For babies and toddlers, vaporizers are mostly offered for vaporizing, while classic sterilizers are increasingly used in the medical field.
  • Vaporizers are available in many different sizes. Which one is right for you depends on the number of bottles you want to put in at the same time and how much space you have in your kitchen.
  • Most electric vaporizers have a capacity of six bottles. Some models even have room for up to twelve bottles.
  • Vaporizers for use in the microwave are usually limited to four bottles. Accessories such as nipples and the like can usually be sterilized or vaporized at the same time with almost all devices in a separate insert basket.
  • With microwave models, you can enjoy sterile bottles and the corresponding accessories after just two minutes. With electric vaporizers, the process takes a little longer. You will have to be patient for about five to ten minutes.
  • If you do not remove the lid, your bottles will remain sterile for several hours. Some manufacturers specify a period of three hours, others even up to twelve hours.
  • A basket in which you can put nipples, pacifiers, nursing caps and more is more than useful. In addition, bottle tongs and a measuring cup are recommended.
  • Ideally, the operation of your vaporizer should be child’s play. A simple push of a button is usually preferable to complicated controls.
  • Quite practical is an additional display that shows, for example, the remaining time needed to complete the process.
Vaporizers With Extra Functions
  • Numerous combination devices are offered, with which you can not only sterilize the vials, but also heat or dry them. This saves time, offers convenience, but also costs a little more.
