Sterilizing pump parts

Question:

Are the pump parts ( bottle, flange, etc) able to go in a microwave steam sterilizer?

Yes you can use steam sterilizers to sterilize the parts of your pump. In the instruction maual it gives a list of parts that can be cleaned by boiling. Any of the parts listed there can be cleaned in a steam sterilizer. Be sure to follow the manufaturers instructions for your specific sterilizer.
