Re: Baby food maker, blender or food processor?

I used a small food processor to make baby food by black and Decker.

Re: Baby food maker, blender or food processor?

I used a blender and my food mill to get it extra smooth. DS liked texture so after the first little bit the blender was enough.

I used a cusinart processor, froze it in ice cube trays, then stored in freezer bags. I highly recommend a QUIET food processor, mine is not!

I use a Ninja blender that I picked up at Walmart pretty cheaply and $1 ice cube trays. The ninja makes very smooth purees.

I just used my mini food processor. I got so much use out of that thing. I love it for salsa too.

That gadget looks cool! What is it exactly? I can't really tell from the photo and I've never seen one before.

What's a food mill? Is the item pictured in my post above a food mill? I'm intrigued Thanks!

We used a food processor, but that's because we already had one.
Wholesomebabyfood.com is a great resource.
I found making large batches, and freezing the food in ice cube trays. I would then pop the food out, and store it in ziplock bags that were labeled.
I think a decent blender would work just fine.
Good luck! It's fun and somewhat addicting

Re: Baby food maker, blender or food processor?

I've registered for one, mostly because I don't have a food processor already and I'm busy (and, ahem, a little lazy). My friend was raving about her Beaba, so that's what I went for. They get mold in them? Hm.. I'll have to do some research.
