Baby milk or food residues may end up on the heating plate when the bottles are placed in the steriliser. These residues can cause an unpleasant smell when the steriliser is heating up. To avoid this, always clean all parts before sterilising.
For detailed instructions, please read Do I have to wash the bottles before I put them in the steriliser? in the user manual.
