Does anyone have a microwave steriliser?

I have one which is a big hard plastic container. Water goes in the bottom then the parts on top of a plastic grill with a plastic lid. If you have one like this - how long does it need to be microwaved for?

I have one for my foster babies. It's 200ml of water for 4 minutes but not sure if other brands are the same.

This is what my instructions say:

2 min at 1100-1850 Watt, 4 min at 850-1000 Watt, 6 min at 500-850 Watt.

Cool. I zapped it for 5 min so all good.
Yield is way down again though - only 80 ml tonight
