The Best Baby Food Makers To Blend, Puree, and Chop Your Babys Meals
Steaming, blending, and pureeing vegetables and fruits to create colorful, homemade baby food sounds like a fun culinary chemistry experiment. Its not, especially if youre limited in both time and counter space. Its a daunting, multi-step task that is simplified by using a baby food maker or a baby blender.
The latest baby food makersstreamline the process by letting you toss in the ingredients you want and having the machine do the rest of the work. Make no mistake: These things are a luxury, and you can achieve the same results, albeit with more effort, by using a regular immersion blender. But the best all-in-one baby food makers are all about efficiency: They let you set it and forget it.You then freeze the food (the Cleveland Clinic recommends keeping it in the freezer for no more than a month), and thaw it when the next dinner rolls around. Bon appetit.
The Babycook from Baba is insanely popular because it combines both steps of the baby food-making process into one machine.
First, the BEABA steams the raw veggies. Then, with the flip of a button, it blends them into a puree (either with or without bite-sized chunks).It lets you prepare fruits, vegetables, meat or fish from raw to any stage baby and toddler food in 15 minutes.And you dont need to dirty up additional pots or blenders in the process. The bowl holds 4.7 cups, its dishwasher safe, and the thing can even cook/blend meat too. Baba also sells other models that can warm bottles and/or cook rice and pasta.
This baby food maker will blend, chop, disinfect, clean, reheat, and defrost your tot's grub.
This is like the Instant Pot of baby food makers. Its seven machines in one. You press one button to steam your broccoli, and then another button to chop it up. The capacity of the bowl is, however, not as big as we wish it would be.

With this baby food maker, all you need to do is provide the actual food. It comes with two steaming trays, so you can cook everything separately.

This baby food machine is made from FDA-approved, BPA-free, food-grade materials. It also features built-in protection mechanisms to prevent injury. Its steamer basket is machine washable, and the detachable blade can be removed and cleaned thoroughly in seconds.

Unlike electric baby-food makers, the Tot Mash is a food mill and requires a little effort to mash and sieve those veggies.
After filling the base with fruit, vegetables, or cooked meat, simply attach the crank on top and get down to grinding. Turn the crank until you reach the bottom of the mill, and you should have food of a perfect consistency for your hungry tot (although you can also add water or broth to the mill to make things easier, attain a different texture). Whats nicer still about the OXO is that, at roughly the size of a coffee cup, its small enough to bring to a restaurant or grandmas house.
This is a one-and-done baby food maker. It comes with a hand blender to chop up the food, a bowl to contain the food, a freezer tray to freeze the food, and attachments for soups, sauces, smoothies, and other dishes.
