    Default Conventional steamer or baby food maker?

    I'd recommend the Tupperware micro steamer. It's brilliant, you can't boil it dry (like I always did with the electric one) and it keeps all the nutrients in the food, exactly like a stove top or electric steamer.

    This is what I have. I recommend it to everyone! Best thing I have ever purchased.

    Honestly I agree with steamers being a fad but I CANNOT find a small steam pot for the stove... I have a huge one and its such a pain to clean expeccially for the little amounts DD needs! That's really the only reason I'm thinking about a steamer, also I don't actually have a microwave... they give me the hibyjibies

    I really like my Tupperware steamer it's expensive but well worth is and it's big enough to use as a family steamer too

    I have an electric steamer and its pretty good. It was way cheaper than the baby food specific ones, and it seems larger too (great for normal meals). It steams eggs really well, which surprised me haha. Considering how specific and expensive the baby food ones are I'd skip it and just go with the bigger steamer without the blender (especially if your Bub likes chunkier food ).

    I have about 5 different sized bamboo steamer baskets ( Chinese style - all very cheap from my local Asian grocery shop!)
    I steam a lot of food and have used these for years, I just put them
    Over a saucepan of boiling water and put the food I want to steam
    On a plate inside, put on a kitchen timer so I won't forget!
    For those that don't steam your own veggies , how do you cook them
    Normally?

    Ciaomamma, why don't you use the larger one you have to cook up a batch of veg & then freeze in portion sizes that you need? I find that the easiest way.

    I'm never that well organised! I tried to freeze zucchini and pumpkin and they were no good after defrosting (really watery and DD didn't like it) so I'm looking at making her food every 2 or 3 days ahead...

    I've got one of the baby food specific ones and its fantastic. It steams the food, automatically shuts off so if you're busy and forget its fine. The bowl then just flips upside down and blends too. I've loved it.

    Yes they are pricey compared to a normal steamer, but oh so convenient! And only one bowl to clean - bonus.

    Update: I went shopping today for christmas gifts and went to target, I was looking at pots to see if by any miracle they had a small pot steamer... they did for $22 so I'm thinking that's great! Then I go around the corner and there it is the Bellini baby food steamer & blender for $33.87 yes $33.87!!! I couldn't believe it! So I bought it!! Will use it tomorrow :-) can't wait!
    thanks everyone for your input, I really appreciate it!!
