The new Plus version of the Wabi Baby Electric Steam Sterilizer now comes with dryer function. No longer will you need to air-dry your sterilized bottles and worry about it reversing the effect of sterilizing. Also, this means lesser cluttering on your countertop as there is no need for a separate drying rack anymore!
You can use both sterilizing and drying functions together, or independently. Like most of its counterparts, the Wabi Baby takes 8-15 minutes, depending on the capacity of its content, to complete one sterilizing cycle. If you wish to use the drying function, you can choose from 30, 45 to 60 minutes. If you choose to use both together, the maximum time required is just 1 hour. The improved design memorizes the last setting under drying and auto mode so that you can just press on one button for your next use. And oh, you can use it as a storage item too by keeping sterilized items for up to 12 hours if the lid remains closed. It will automatically run drying for 10 minutes every 3 hours for 3 times to ensure its contents are kept dry and sterilized.
The Wabi Baby plus version has also enlarge its basket so that it can now store more accessory items such as nipples, pacifiers, teething toys and even nebulizer etc. At its maximum capacity, you can fit up to 8 standard size bottles of any brand and the chamber style makes it easier for you to load all your items. What’s better, is that an extra plate rack is provided to provide you the versatility of sterilizing different sized items of your infant needs.
The exclusive design of its bottle rack ensures that hot steam goes straight into the bottles to perform optimum sterilizing results. Also, an air rotator is specially designed to increase air flow speed in the chamber to reduce drying time tremendously. In fact, it claims that as long as you place all your items properly without blocking the airflow, the Wabi Baby will dry everything you fit inside. Microbiologically tested and approved by independent lab, you do not have to worry about there being a burnt/chemical smell after each use as the Wabi Baby is made from FDA food grade approved material to ensure a toxic-free environment.
The downside of the Wabi Baby Electric Sterilizer is definitely its price but understandably so because you are getting a 3-in-1 sterilizing, drying and storage item. Also, you will have to allow an hour for sterilization AND drying to be completed, so make sure you time your usage well or else you will find yourself not having enough bottles for baby to use
Also, the Wabi Baby does not eliminate what other baby bottle sterilizer faces – mineral buildup maintenance. You will need to clean the sterilizer regularly according to the instruction given to clear buildups but this is now made easy with a One Button Descaling, meaning you just have to press the descaling button to start the process. This works best with the Wabi Baby Fast-Action Descaling Powder, which most parents buy also when they purchase the Wabi Baby Plus Version.
If you have a few extra bucks to spend, and are concern about air-drying reversing the effect of sterilization, the Wabi Baby is definitely your best bottle sterilizer and dryer.
