    Default Baby food steamer/blender

    Has anyone used a good baby food steamer and blender that they would recommend? I'm thinking of getting the Beaba babycook but it's quite expensive and I don't know if it's really worth it.

    For those who have made baby food in your everyday steamers and blenders did you wish you had bought an appliance specifically for this purpose or were you fine without it?

    Any opinions would be really helpful and appreciated

    I just used a steamer and my stick blender. I didn't find it hard at all.

    A part of me wanted a snazzy baby food maker, but I just couldn't justify it personally. I guess it would save some washing up, but stick blenders are easy to clean anyway.

    Good luck deciding!

    I just used my stick blender too so easy and a lot less in price and would get way more use out of it

    Stick blender or even a potato ricer especially for pairs that can be a bit stringy.

    Yep, stick blender is all you need and mine was a cheapie from Kmart. You are only going to use it for about six months, remember. I know my kitchen cupboard space is limited, so extra gadgets are out.

    Also just used a stick blender - cheapie one is fine, unless you want one with other attachments (I like the whisk on mine, but nothing to do with baby food making!).

    I bought a $30 stick blender from the good guys and just steamed it on the stove and I wouldn't have changed a thing, was quick and easy and even easier to clean. Like a PP said, as you only use it for about 6 months I couldn't justify taking up cupboard space for something I probably wouldn't use much.

    If you really wanted a baby food maker, could you have a look on eBay for a second hand one, since they've probably only been used for a few months anyway.

    I was going to buy one of those makes baby food gadgets but then I realised that is exactly what it is - a gadget. I used a steamer and a hand held mixer and it worked perfectly good for me.
