Born Free® Tru-Clean™ Sterilizing System
I received this product free in exchange for a review. However, this did not influence my opinion.
I found this sterilizer very convenient and easy to use.
Lightweight, can be easily stored in its box and pulled out as needed
Quick sterilization, which can be monitored by using the light source
Easy to wimple clean
Does not get hot on the outside, so it is safe to use
It doesn't fit the tall Dr. Brown bottles and the accessory basket in one cycle. Since my bottles are too tall, I have to run two cycles, which takes longer.
I hate emptying the water by dumping it over the side and trying to avoid getting the cord wet.
Obviously, I cannot test to see if my bottles are truly "sterilized" but I have faith that they are. I like this product and would recommend it to others looking for a sterilizing system.

Love this product
I use this for everything even pacifiers! Daughter is almost 5 months and I use this instead of dishwasher. I wash items in sink then use this, less dishwasher time that way. I use it two to three times a day and have since she was born, still working perfectly!
Used it for breast pumping items as well. If you are pumping and bottle feeding be prepard to use this all the time. It is a little small so you have to keep up with the dishes to avoid pile up.

Truly a God Send
This may be one of the best items I received at my baby shower. My mother tried to talk me out of putting a sterilizer in exchange for boiling bottles are placing them in the dishwasher. So glad I didn't listen! This machine is simple to use , fast , holds a ton of bottles and other baby items . My husband and I just don't sanitize bottles, but we place breast pump parts, thermometers, medicine spoons and pacifiers in it as well. This product is very well made and looks great sitting on my counter. It blends very well with the rest of my stainless appliances.

You need this item!
Feeding a newborn every two hours is insane. But having this sterilizer that holds 6 bottles at a time and does it in less than 10 minutes is truly a lifesaver. I became a born free fanatic

Great little timesaver
I was given a free sample of this product to review; however, my opinions are my own. Prior to receiving this system, I had to run my dishwasher several times a day to sterilize not only breast pump accessories and bottles, but also my infant's pacifiers (which seem to constantly be finding their way onto the floor). This efficient little sterilizer takes up very little space on my countertop and the apartment feels much more peaceful without the dishwasher constantly running. (Less water wasted as well.) Within mere minutes, the bottles/accessories/pacifiers are sterilized and ready to use again. I love it.

This is a great sterilizer!! I love how it does a visual countdown on the front of the machine so you know where in the process of sterilizing the machine is. There also is a cool down indicator so you know when you to actually open the top. The bottle basket holds 6 full size bottles. I tried this out with 3 different bottle types and all fit very well. The top basket holds tons of bottle accessories, breast pump parts and pacifiers. Overall this is a very versatile sterilizer that will definitely make your life a little bit easier.
I received this product from the manufacturer to review but all opinions expressed are my own.

Great Product to Own!
I just tried out the Born Free Tru Clean Bottle Sterilizing system and loved it! I had previously been using my dishwasher to sterilize my baby's bottles but this is so much easier and convenient. I can run it anytime I have only dirty bottles, which is often, and not have to worry about having other dirty dishes to fill my dishwasher. This is also much quicker, the whole process takes around 20 minutes to complete, and is much more convenient to use. There is enough room for 6 bottles and a compartment for the tops of the bottles or pump parts on top. I've used it with Born Free bottles, but the instructions have said that it can be used with most major bottle brands as well. There is just one button to press to start the sterilizer and it the light turns green once it is completed. It is simple to use and load and such a time saver.
The only issue I've really come across with the sterilizing system, is that the top doesn't open to a full 90 degrees or more to remove or enter the drying rack great. Mine only opens about 65 degrees, so it makes it harder to remove the full tray as the top doesn't open as much as I want it to and I have to carefully maneuver it in and out. The top is also a bit flimsy and I would like it to be a bit better quality, as the rest of the sterilizer is.
But all in all, it is a great tool to have, and incredibly helpful. I am glad that I was able to receive the product as a sample to test, and would definitely recommend it to others.

very good and easy to use product
I have received a sample of this product to review and I must say that I am impressed with it. The steriliser looks very good and sleek on the countertops and doesn't take up too much room. It is so easy to use (I didn't even read the full instructions, there is only one button to press) and doesn't take long either. I especially like the cool down period at the end, I have never burned myself taking the bottles out of the steriliser! Another good feature are the lights on the button, they tell you how close the steriliser is to finishing. The basket you can put on top of the bottles is great too and can also be used in the dishwasher. I also like that when opening, the water runs back into the steriliser, keeping your countertops clean and dry. The only reason why I gave it 4 out of 5 is that I use various brands of bottles and found that not all fit in perfectly.
