-- Manufacturer's Description --
There’s only one word for the Coral UV 3-in-1 Ultraviolet Sterilizer and Dryer and that’s FANTASTIC. This wasn’t a product I hadn't realised existed, I didn’t consider buying one and very quickly I realised just how much I needed one. It feels like the Cadillac of sterilising options. A UV steriliser like this is marketed to moms for obvious reasons, but it has a place in every single home and many businesses.
With the current COVID-19 Pandemic, buying a UV steriliser can help keep you and your family safe, but make sure you don’t let it lull you into a false sense of security. For example, use a steriliser on your mask, by all means, but it can’t get into the folds and crevices so still boil and sterilise your mask properly as well.
Not sure what UV sterilising is? Here’s some info from the makers.
There’s really no way for a regular person to measure how effective UV sanitisation is from each device, but with the quality that Coral UV brings and the fact that it’s a company based in Canada and Third Party Lab Tested they are really backing up their claims.
When it comes to UV sterlisation there’s a lot of nonsense in the market, especially from smaller Chinese-made products. These products can’t deliver the force of UV that will sterilise items, but they still make the claims. So beware of snake oil salesmen when it comes to ultraviolet light!
Coral UV’s 3-in-1 UV Steriliser is fantastic. I’ve sterilised over 100 items in it already with no decrease in function or issues. They are also extremely straight-forward about the safety of the device and instructions to use it and make sure it’s effective.
Speaking of safety, the Coral UV Sanitiser shuts off the rays automatically when the lid is opened, keeping both adults and children safe. The really neat part is, it remembers your setting and when closed it resumes the cycle; very clever!
I’ve used it to sanitise electronics like phones and controllers (which are some of the germiest items in our household), sponges and even makeup and makeup brushes. It’s so easy to use that I found myself sterilising all the things I’ve felt never got a good enough clean.
The ease of use of the Coral UV Sanitiser and Dryer is one of the reasons I’d recommend it so highly. The range of settings is also fantastic. There’s a sterilise, sterilise and dry, 24 hour sterilise and a dry only setting, each of which comes with a range of times. I initially thought I’d use only the sterilise option, but that wasn’t the case. For example, I wash my makeup brushes and normally I’d leave them to dry, now I can pop them in the Coral UV and let it dry and sanitise simultaneously.
The only setting I didn’t use much was the 24 hour sterilise, which would be better for baby items. While I’ve loved sterilising household items, I feel this is an absolute MUST-HAVE for any modern mom. Being able to effortlessly sterilise bottles, pacifiers and breast pump parts is incredible. It feels like the future has arrived!
Everything about the Coral UV 3-in-1 UV Sanitiser and Dryer screamed quality at me. It’s a ‘scary’ seeming product, but thanks to the professional look, feel and amazing quality, I never felt nervous or ill-at-ease. The simple white box, with shimmery grey trim and clear markings feels incredibly simple and as a result, it makes using it even easier.
You can tell a lot of work has gone into both the branding and the engineering. When I read to keep it at distance from the wall to allow the back to have ventilation, I thought there’d be a noisy fan. I can’t explain how quiet this machine is. The Coral UV is quieter than any ‘whisper-quiet’ machine I’ve used. The quality is simply top-notch!
The quality can be seen in the design and the design is incredible quality; the two are linked. It’s not just about looks though. The cleverness of the design is what makes the Coral UV Sanitiser a dream to use. The buttons are effortlessly pressed and so simple to use (press once for the setting and more than once to change the times, then simply wait). The large ‘PRESS’ button on front makes it clear and easy to open the sterilising box and since the safety features protect you, there’s no worry about doing so.
It’s basically a big cube, but they’ve curved the edges of the design, so it never looks ugly or bulky. It would look great in any environment from a bedroom to a kitchen.
On the interior, the surface is mirrored to reflect and bounce the UV light around and sterilise more effectively. A grey rubber seal keeps the UV where it’s supposed to be. There’s an optional basket attachment that allows you to fit more items. This basket works great for smaller items (caps/tweezers etc) and lets the UV light get all around the item.
It’s a decent size with enough room for a range of things. Keeping in mind that you can’t stack things and must spread them out, there’s enough room for most smaller items. You can even fit a pair of adult slippers in there, one at a time.
While CDN$ 179.00 (at time of review) isn’t a small amount of money (depending on your budget), I’ve tried a lot of non-essential products that cost a lot more. The Coral UV is extremely affordable and given the quality and size of the device, I think the price point makes it even more of an essential for every home. For moms, especially, the value is brilliant.
Keep in mind that there are some extras you’ll need. You’ll need a replacement HEPA filter every 3 months, but it also comes with 3 (and one already in the unit). At this time they aren’t on Amazon, but I found them on their website for $10 for a pack of 4, so not exactly breaking the bank at that price. At $24.99 for the replacement bulbs once a year, there are maintenance costs of $34.99 per year, not crazy for such a useful device!
The Coral UV 3-in-1 UV Sanitiser and Dryer is an effortlessly useful device that is a must-have for a modern household. The low price, high value and ease of use make it a must-buy and the third-party lab certification means you know you’re getting a quality UV sanitiser that actually works.
