I was very intrigued by this when I was pregnant and i don't regret getting it but there are a few things I'd change. SVGreen gave a great review and I agree alot with their review. I wish it came with more of the regular blade. I (like svgreen) never used the Milling blade and usually when I made food was making a few different kinds and cleaning the blade was not only a pain to clean but also a pain to dry. It was dishwasher safe but when making different foods in the same day, you had to hand wash it. I also wish the adorable little storage cups were bigger or it came with more. They were nice when he was a baby and not eating large amounts but as he grew, i could only store a day or two worth of food... and the freezer batch tray was a pain! I couldn't get them out for the life of me. I gave up and got silicon ice cube trays which worked great! Other then that, it did great. I learned NOT to put hotter foods in the smaller container... the heat makes pressure and I had to fight to get the blade off. The bigger one is okay as it doesn't seal closed. I also had to return mine for another. The first one after a couple uses started to smell like burning then under the blade had black stuff everywhere... I was able to exchange it at the store i purchased it with no problem but contacting Baby Bullet's customer service was horrible. If you can, buy it at a retailer near you and save the receipt so incase you have the unfortunate event like I did, you can easily exchange it. I gave my son mostly fresh food but also jar food and he always preferred the fresh made food over the jar. I especially loved the bullet because it was convenient and in the morning i could quickly blend up some fresh banana, blueberries, strawberries, or soft veggies and fruits to add to his cereal.
The Baby Bullet is a great product for parents looking to make sure their child is consuming healthy food without additives and preservatives. I used the Bullet to mill oatmeal and rice as well as make basic purees in the early stages of solid foods. Now that my son self feeds we still use the Bullet for apple sauces and smoothies and veggie soups...I love this product!
I bought this after seeing the infomercial. I love it, just wish I could use it more as the sound absolutely terrifies my daughter. But when I do get the chance, she loves the food. It's so easy and I love the little book it comes with. The only downfalls for me are:
-the storage containers should be bigger.
-no matter what I do, I sometimes have leakage from the bullet while I'm blending
Other than that, everythings great!
I currently have one of these, even though my son is barely one month old. I use it for pureeing food right now and I love this system. It makes small portion, cleans easy, not hard to understand, and you're able to store food for future use and not guess on when yo stored it(because of the day dial around the rim). I say this is a must have if you plan on making your baby's food or if you just want to save money( because I'm sure mothers know how costly baby food can be, especially the all natural or organic kind). I would definitely recommend this machine.
I like this product and love making food that is health for my daughter. The only down fall of this product was that the containers were a bit bigger. It's good when they are younger and not eating much, but as they get older they require more containers and there isn't enough to make, but a couple days worth.
I used this for my younger son, because the price of the prepared food was outrageous. It was nice to make up a bunch of veggies & store them (with a vaccuum sealer we were able to store them longer). It took a little trail and error to get the veggies blended to the right consistency for my son, but definitely worth it.
A baby food maker is certainly not necessary to make your own baby food, but I have found that it makes the process easier for me. I wish it came with more food storage.
I saw the infomercials for this product when I was pregnant and thought it was just another way to get more money out of new parents. Couldn't I just use my food processor and tupperware?
Then my step-mother bought this for us, and I completely changed my mind. Yes, you can use your existing products, but ease of use counts for a lot when you are a sleep deprived new parent.
Here's what I like:
- The storage cups are the perfect size for feeding my hungry 10 month old a range of foods at each meal and the date band is very useful.
- The batch containers are also the perfect size for the amount of food. The larger one holds a whole sweet potato - which all babies love.
- It seems to create a better texture than my regular food processor and works more quickly.
My only critiques are:
- I wish it came with more than one regular blade. We never used cereal so the mill blade has never been used because it doesn't work well with other foods.
- The freezer batch tray is also a pain. I have to fight with it to release the food so I've taken to using regular covered ice trays.
- The batch bowl has lines that I assume are to strengthen it, but it makes it a pain to remove the food.
- This is minor, but the color is kind of awful. Its very hospital/institutional green. I wish it was more cheery.
