I have a new baby in the house and we have an Avent Steam Sterilizer IQ 24 that I used with my first. I looked it up and that model is unfortunately no longer made).
I’ve been doing a lot of canning and wanted to find a way to sterilize my jars without using the giant canning pot or the dishwasher. I suddenly thought about my sterilizer and so far I think it’s a great solution for small batch canning. Or even canning large batches!
It fits three wide mouth pint jars or two quart jars at a time and the steam cycle lasts only 6 minutes. I don’t know how well the new model fits jars, nor do I know how some of the other electric bottle sterilizers fit. You can still purchase them used on craigslist or maybe e-bay.
Just thought I’d pass along an interesting canning tip for fast sterilization of jars!
