Best of Baby Winner for Best Baby Food Maker
Is your little one showing signs that they’re ready to expand their palate? Chop, chop—it might be time to invest in a baby food maker. While every child develops at their own pace, most pediatricians give the go-ahead to introduce solids sometime between the four- and six-month mark. If you choose to make your own purees from scratch, you can go the old-school route and wash, prep, steam and blend your own mixes. Or, you can simply opt for the Beaba Babycook. This clever appliance whips up fresh, homemade baby food in under 20 minutes—with limited cleanup, thanks to its dishwasher-safe glass mixing bowl. It steam cooks raw chicken, fish, fruits and veggies in a process that preserves nutrients, and you can choose the consistency of your blend. Plus, you can also use it to defrost and reheat baby food. Is it any wonder this baby food maker has won a Best of Baby award once before?
A large, 4.5 cup capacity bowl allows you to cook baby’s meals in 20 minutes or less. Better yet, it’s dishwasher-safe, which means there are less dishes to wash
The cooker is designed with four settings, meaning you can use one device to steam, blend, defrost and reheat baby food
A pulse feature allows you to adjust the consistency of baby’s food from a fine puree to a chunky blend
Serve meals up fresh or batch cook purees and use the multiportion freezer trays (sold separately) to store them for later use
