This small steamer is exactly the size we required. After wasting counter space (as well as alot of time and $) on a electric bottle sterilizer and after having discovered microwave sterilizers, seeing this Clevermana pacifier sterilizer intrigued me. As I've solely breastfed for the past 6 months, the large microwave sterilizers has stayed in the cupboard as taking it out for pacifiers alone seemed unnecessary and as for the electric one- that was passed off to someone who didn't know any better ;). This little steamer has been used daily. Pour in a bit of water, hang as many pacifiers as possible, replace lid and microwave for 1 minute. That's it.
It even fits MAM newborn as well as their 0-6 month pacifiers though admittedly it's a little awkward.
The base has a great ring of grip so tipping has never been an issue.
The only (slight)negative to this sterilizer is opening it after its been in the microwave.
As there is no handle you can use as leverage to twist the lid off in a hurry when hot (the small finger bar at the top is too tiny to be truly practical), you need to grab the whole lid to twist which often results in spilling the hot water due to the shallow bowl and lid lip placement.
Other than this small issue which can be easily got over by having more patience by waiting for the water to cool and then opening it with a bit more care now that you are no longer concermed with burning your hands.
Its an excellent macro microwave sterilizer that I wish it had discovered for my first 2 kids.
