Recommended Baby Food Processors, Mills And Grinders
If you’re cooking in bulk for your little one, baby food processors are great time-savers and help you achieve
ideal, consistent textures.
From baby’s first purees to more sophisticated chopped meals, these handy appliances make baby food
preparation quick and easy.
The advantages of using processors made specifically for baby food is that they tend to be smaller
in size and easier to clean. But traditional models also do the job just as well, plus they continue to
be useful well after your baby is enjoying the same food as the rest of the family.
These products are available in the US –
|OXO Tot Mash Maker Baby Food Mill|
Puree your baby’s food the old fashioned way! These food mills don’t use batteries or electricity – so they’re not just great to use at home, they’re also ideal for travel, allowing you to prepare meals for your baby wherever you go.
This has to be the ultimate in baby food processors – because it actually cooks or heats your little one’s food, too! Yes, the Beaba Babycook will steam fruits, veggies etc in under 15 minutes and will turn off automatically when the food is done. It will then puree the food to the perfect texture, ready for serving – or you can pop it into the freezer for another day. Need to thaw then reheat baby’s dinner? The Babycook will do that for you, too! It’s a fairly pricey appliance, but we’ve had lots of good reports from Moms who wouldn’t be without it!
|Cuisinart Elite Collection 4-Cup Chopper/Grinder, Die Cast|
These Cuisinart models are versatile enough for use as baby food processors, or for more general culinary use. We like them because they’re versatile, small in size – and very economically priced.
|QOOC 4-in-1 Mini Baby Food Maker|
This is a great little baby food processor for the price! Like some higher priced models, it steams, blends, thaws and reheats. It’s also super-quiet, which is handy if your little one startles at loud noises. This is a SMALL blender, so we don’t recommend it for batch cooking. But it’s perfect if you’re looking for something that doesn’t take up too much space, and want to prep baby’s meals ‘as you go’.
|Magic Bullet Baby Bullet Baby Care System|
You’ve seen it on TV… and here it is at Amazon! Amazing value at under $60, this system comprises everything you need to make and store baby’s food. It includes two different blades for different types of food, a freezer tray, storage cups and more.
|UberChef Potato Ricer Set with 3 Ricing Discs|
We LOVE this high quality ricer, which works on the same principle as a garlic press. It is designed to be very comfortable to use and includes three discs for different degrees of ‘fineness’. Not only does this make it useful as your baby progresses on to different texture, it also means you can use it for making perfect mashed potato and ‘mashing’ other root veggies! This ricer is easy to use and easy to clean – and whilst there are a few ricers on the market specifically designed for baby food, this one is our hands-down favorite!
|Magic Bullet 17-Piece Express Mixing Set|
If you’re looking for more of a “long term investment”, then we highly recommend the Magic Bullet! Despite its small size, it’s very powerful… and very versatile! It’s perfect for baby food, but can also be used to make smoothies, grind coffee, crush ice etc. It comes with lots of accessories and a handy recipe book.
Baby Food Processors Available In The UK Only
|Philips Avent Combined Baby Food Steamer and Blender|
Extremely easy to use, this blender is a real time saver for busy mums – you just pop in the fruits, veggies, meat or fish that you wish to prepare for baby, steam them, then turn the unit over to puree them. Hey presto, dinner is served! And the good news is that the blender has few parts, so it’s easy to dismantle and clean.
|NutriBullet Baby Food Blender with date markers|
We love this set! Not only do you get a great baby food processor that’s capable of milling oats and other grains, you also get 6 storage pots with date dials AND 2 freezer trays with lids. Excellent value for a product you’ll enjoy using every day.
|Béaba Babycook® Original Grey/Blue|
One of the most popular baby food processors on the market today, the Babycook does three jobs in one. It can either defrost your baby’s meals, cook them, or puree them! It’s definitely one of the more expensive baby food accessories out there, but the fact that it takes the place of several kitchen appliances makes it a little more economical than it first appears!
|Tommee Tippee Explora Baby Food Blender|
A great price for a great blender! Tommee Tippee’s Explora has 2 speed settings, so it’s easy to get the right texture at each stage of development (puree/mashed/chunky etc). It also has a pulse action, so you can very carefully control the consistency of baby’s food. If you are a little short on counter space, this compact little machine is the perfect blender for you!
|Nuby Garden Fresh Mighty Blender|
If you’re just getting started with making baby food, this system is an economical choice because it contains everything you need..
