Can anyone help, I've mis-laid the actual instructions for my AVENT STEAM STERILISER, I can mainly remember how it all goes & operates but just wondered if someone had the instructions and could be bothered to type them up on here for me...I'd really appreciate it!! Mainly need to know the details about de-scaling the thing...have my citric acid but that is as much as I can remember!

P.s Haven't been around to post due to various problems, but have had the baby, will post to the other threads next time I have a spare moment!

Dixie - if no joy on the website let me know - I have mine somewhere I know and will post here if you still need them.

Ive copied this off the citric acid sachet so hope its the same as yours!

Mix 10gm sachet with 200ml/7fl oz water and pour into the steriliser. Switch on for 1-2 mins. do not put lid on.
Then switch off at mains and leave to stand for 30 mins. Drain and rinse the unit.

After descaling run a full cycle with the lid on, but the unit empty using the correct amount of water.

Its quite pongy so dont do it in a small kitchen with the baby!

Using the steriliser just pour water into the bottom so it comes just below the max line, put lid on and switch on.
Empty out after use.

Hope this helps. Youve prompted me into going and desacaling mine!

Have just checked the instruction leaflet - after descaling wipe unit dry.
When sterilising use 3 oz water in the bottom.

Talking about missing instructions, I can't find ours for the maxi priori 2nd stage car seat, ie how to move the straps/take the cover off for washing etc. I had to rely on dbrother last time, but thats a 320mile round trip!! Is there a website with instr?
Congratulations Dixie on your new arrival, looking forward to hearing the details once you have a moment.
