When Cooper began eating purees we gave him everything from peas to carrots, apples to blueberries, and luckily Cooper loved it all! He is a happy eater and turns his head at nothing. I was shocked to see him scarf down green beans, not care if we went from a sweet fruit to a sweet potato, and his eagerness to try more inspired me to get creative in the kitchen.
With my baby boy at the front of my mind all the time, I wanted to discover ways to put my culinary expertise to use in creating tasty homemade baby food and when I discovered how EASY Baby Brezza’s one-step food maker was I knew I had to write about it so other moms could see how fast and convenient making baby food is. This machine allows parents to cook and blend food all at once. Stop for a second and think about that! This makes puree making SO much easier and faster. Baby Brezza is the #1 brand of steam-and-blend baby food makers (which are used by 56% of moms who make their own baby food) and I now know why.
The Baby Brezza one-step food maker comes with a user manual that provides cooking times, tips and tricks, even a few recipes. I found this to be very helpful because I could use it as a base and then add other ingredients. For basic purees you simply wash, peel, core (if necessary) and cut the fruits and vegetables into chunks. Place the food into the Baby Brezza Bowl and fill the water tank with water. Refer to the user manual for times and note that all foods cook at different rates so it is important to check the "Cooking Guidelines for Basic Foods" in the user manual or online.
Here I made a apple and pear puree. Because apples are firmer and take longer to cook than pears, I allowed for that amount of time when cooking this simple puree. For 2 apples you steam for 15 minutes and yield about 1 cup of puree. I used 1 apple and 1 pear and steamed for 15 minutes, just to make sure it was cooked!
What is so neat about the food maker is that it steams and blends food with the push of a button in one bowl without requiring any transfer of hot food. In as little as 10 minutes, you can make homemade baby food which is better for your baby and can save you hundreds of dollars vs store-bought. Plus the Baby Food Maker Deluxe is a complete system to make, store and serve baby food. It includes 3 reusable food pouches and filling funnels to easily serve and store baby food. The Food Maker has a 3 cup capacity and is easy to use, easy to clean, and features 3 settings (steam only, blend only or automatic steam and blend). BPA-FREE and 1 year limited warranty.
COOKS AND BLENDS IN 1 STEP: Steam and automatically blend up to 3 cups of food with the push of a button in one bowl. No transfer after cooking required
