·      Wash items you want to sterilise in warm soapy water, rinse and drain before placing in the steriliser.
·        Don’t put dripping wet items into the steriliser, as water can gather at the base. If there is water at the base or leaking from the steriliser, please turn off the machine and wipe away             water.
·        Place the items inside the steriliser. Separate all components and ensure all surfaces that need to be sterilised are visible.
·        Place bottles facing upwards to help with the drying function.

How to use

·        Plug into the power, press the on/off button then select the function you wish to use – sterilise only, dry only, auto sterilise and dry or storage function.
·        The screen will illuminate and flash to show the function when in use. The countdown timer will show how long is left in the cycle.
·        Do not take items out of the steriliser during sterilisation
·        When in use, hot air is released from the steriliser. Please keep your hands, face and other body parts away.
·        The steriliser uses UV light which can cause damage to your eyes and skin. Please don’t stare at the light source.
·        When the cycle is finished, the countdown will show 0 and emit a sound.
·        Remove your items from the steriliser. Be careful as they may still be warm, especially after drying.
·        If you wish to leave the products inside the steriliser you can use the storage mode which will keep them sterile.
·        The UV lamp bulb will be hot after sterilisation. Do not touch.
·        There may be some residual heat after use. Do not touch hot surfaces, such as the shelf, until these have cooled down.
·        You may experience a faint odour on first use. This is normal.
·        Baby bottles that have been sterilised in the UV steriliser may become slightly yellowed in appearance.  This is nothing to worry about. The bottles are still safe to use.

    Press this button alongside any of the functions above to allow items to be stored in the steriliser.

We’ve prepared some common questions and top tips to help you with your new UV Steriliser.

  • Why do I have to position my steriliser away from the wall?

    We recommend a 10cm gap to allow for ventilation, this protects your work surfaces and the unit.
  • If I leave my bottles in storage mode, how long will they remain sterile for?

    In storage mode the steriliser will sterilise and dry the product every 2 hours, until the steriliser is switched off with the power off button.
  • How often should I rinse the sponge filter?

    This very much depends on your environment. We would recommend that you wash or replace your sponge filter when you start to notice any dust build up on the sponge, make sure you check the sponge filter regularly.
  • I’ve lost my sponge filter / damaged it – where can I get a replacement?

    You get a spare sponge filter with the product, you can use this spare if you have lost or damaged the original sponge filter.
  • How long will the UV Light Bulb last?

    Your Philips G4 TUV 4W T5 bulb will last 6,000 hours before it needs replacing.
