Making your own baby food is easy and can help you save money. You can use only one ingredient or experiment by mixing several. I’ve learned it’s all about variety early on. It can ensure our little ones to be more likely to try and accept more foods. Before my daughter was ready to be introduced to pureed foods I already had the BEABA Babycook Pro on hand. When I used it for the first time I loved how easy and quick it was.
What’s in the box?
Comes with mixing blade, spatula with storage spot, bowl with removable lid, cooking/reheating basket, smoothie filter, and power cable. Also included is a small recipe booklet to help get you started.
o 4 in 1. Steamer, blender, warmer, and defroster.
o Easy to use: chop up the food, place in the basket, pour in water, and press the button.
o Can collect cooking juices to get desired texture of the food. This allows you to get the extra nutrients that may have been lost during the steaming process.
o Reliable and quick.
o Easy to clean. Can hand wash or place bowl and basket on the top rack of the dishwasher.
o No need to worry about multiple blades. Uses just one blade that works very well removing large chunks.
o Other accessories available, such as cookbooks, cutlery, and storage containers.
o Can prepare a good amount at once and freeze the leftovers
o Compact and looks good
o It is an expensive product. Prices can vary around $150 on Amazon.
o Could still make your own baby food without it. Steam using a pot of boiling water and then puree in a blender
o May only use for few months since little one will eventually move on to solid foods.
Overall, the BEABA Babycook Pro 4 in 1 is a good product. I loved being able to control the quality of the food I was making for my daughter. Yes, it is pricey, but the overall savings you could get from making your own healthy baby food vs buying overpriced, manufactured baby food is worth it. I will definitely be using it again when our second little one is ready.
