Re: Baby food maker, blender or food processor?

I don't like extra kitchen clutter, so I used the steamer pan we already had (and use multiple times a week) and a small food processor. Worked great and was easy. Mostly froze in covered ice cube trays. We make smoothies in the food processor now, so a blender is not necessary for that.

I started out using my mini blender. It didn't get the food smooth enough. I found a new in damaged box baby Brezza on eBay for $34 shipped. It had been awesome. It's small enough to stash away or leave it in the counter.

Re: Baby food maker, blender or food processor?

We just used our blender. Using our gian fp was a paing. We have a mini but it wasnt makign enough food at a time. Im so glad that we ust used our mulit setting/option blender rathern than buying one of those baby food processors. It took a few hours and now i have a coupld of months of food! Blender all the way. We have a puree setting on ours. Love it.

Re: Baby food maker, blender or food processor?

I used the mini prep Cuisinart processor as well, but I also like using a nice blender (Vitamix or Ninja). I use my mini prep for everything these days b/c I haven't been able to buy the nice blender yet. Don't use a cheap blender, it leaves chunks.

I liked my baby food maker. It steamed it prior to puréeing it. No work on my part.

Re: Baby food maker, blender or food processor?

I use a steamer tray that came with my rice cooker to steam the foods that need it. For pureeing I bought a $20 stick blender from Walmart and it works perfectly.

I used my food processor. It was perfect. I leave it on the counter anyway because I use it all the time. Also had a baby food maker but didn't like it as much.
