That's maybe alright for hospital equipment but way over the top for beer bottles!
I do all mine right before filling - 5 minutes at 110c, and the oven doesn't have to be cold as I have to do several batches to do 40+ bottles.
By the time the last bottles are done the first ones have cooled enough to fill. Easiest method I've ever used as most of the time is taken up sitting in a chair.

Wee bit fairy and water. Good rinse out and then make up a jug of no rinse and pour some into each bottle and shake.
