Best baby food maker
Easy to use and clean
The Baby Bullet
is a quick and simple baby food making solution with few parts that is easy to clean. The Bullet creates smooth purees and chunkier foods by blending or pulsing as desired. It has few parts to keep track of and everything is easy to clean with no nooks or crannies for harmful bacteria or mold to hide. We like the friendly price and food storage containers that make this an affordable and useful option for most families. While you do need to cook the food on your stove top before blending, we think steaming on the stove top is just as easy as an all-in-one steam without the plastic related health concerns and a quicker dishwasher safe clean up. Unless you have your heart set on an all-in-one option you can set and forget, we think it is hard to go wrong with the impressive Baby Bullet and its simple setup.

Easy handheld option
Sage Spoonfuls Puree and Blend
The Sage Spoonfuls Puree and Blend
produced near perfect puree every time with a simple, intuitive interface that can be used quickly right out of the box. We did run into a few hiccoughs with some crunchier than desired carrots while using the immersion blender, but overall its compact size, versatility, ease of use, simple cleaning procedure, and the high-quality puree impressed us. The immersion blender enables parents to puree softer foods to a perfect consistency in a matter of seconds. We found the food processor to be equally effective, quickly grinding brown rice or oatmeal to tiny granules, perfect for baby cereals. While the immersion blender is not equipped to handle hard, raw foods, the food processor takes over in this category to finish the job. In short, this product blends like a dream, has a small footprint in your kitchen, and will definitely remain a useful cooking tool well beyond
the time you use it for preparing food for your baby. With a budget-friendly price, it is hard to find fault with this healthy option.

The Cuisinart BFM-1000
is the highest ranking all-in-one we tested with a simple cooking feature and smoother purees and the other steam and blend options. The Cuisinart is an easy to use steam and cook product that utilizes the same bowl for cooking and blending making it a quicker and easier to use choice than the products that require food transfer. We liked the simple user interface and the ability to do other things while the food cooked. On the downside the Cuisinart has a hard to clean steam tank you can't see or reach into that Amazon reviewers report can get gross over time and the price is on the high side for families on a budget. However, if the price isn't a factor and you are diligent about cleanliness and routine maintenance, then the Cuisinart might be a good choice for parents who want a set and forget option.
