Beaba Babycook - Easy, Healthy Food for your Baby

Updated on September 13, 2014

One Bowl ~ Easy ~ Healthy ~ Peace of Mind ~ Beaba Babycook

The Beaba Babycook has been big in Europe for years and just hit the US recently. This one-of-a-kind appliance that steams, blends, purees, defrosts or warms up your baby's food all in one compact countertop cooker. Use it to steam cook vegetables, fruits and meats in less than 15 minutes, preserving the vitamins and minerals in the food. Includes a cooking basket, spatula, recipe booklet and 2.5 cup capacity bowl.

Now, making your own baby food isn't a new thing. And you can do it using things you probably already have - a steamer, a food processor. But there's something to be said for the convenience of doing it all in one unit with just one thing to clean up afterward.

"... never had to eat store baby-food with its preservatives and expensive jars. I recommend it to all my friends and to momma's in the office who ask about making baby food."

Get the Most Out of Your Beaba Babycook

Tips on using your baby food maker to its fullest

If you have the Beaba Babycook or another baby food grinder or mill or cooker, you probably want to get the most out of it. Here are just a few tips to make this easier. (Because if it isn't easy, you probably won't do it!)

Cook portions ahead to freeze. Pureed fruits and veggies freeze pretty well. Cook more than you need, then plop the extra into ice cube trays or baby food containers and keep them in the freezer until you need them. You can either cook just a little extra every time you use it or plan ahead for the entire week in one go.

Don't stress yourself by making something special for baby. Just plop the veggies you're making for everyone else into the Babycook at the same time and you're good. Has the nice side effect of forcing you to actually make vegetables for everyone else!

Control the texture by adding more or less water to the mix. You might find that it's not that your toddler doesn't like beets, but that he likes them with more water so they aren't grainy. Or that sweet potatoes are better with less water. Play a little and see how the amount of water you use might change how your baby likes the food.

Customer Review

"We went ahead and spent the money and I'm soooo happy we did. So easy to use makes perfect baby food and I only have one container to wash afterwards. Best part since it's a self contained unit I can turn it on and then go play with baby, rather than constantly watching like I would have had to on the stove."

The Top 100 Baby Purees Cookbook

Don't start freaking out and making this more complicated than it needs to be. You don't really need a cookbook in order to make baby food. Most of the time, you're just cooking a vegetable or fruit, then pureeing it. That's about all there is to it.

But, variety is the spice of life and the same holds true for baby food. Introducing your child to new foods and food combinations can help avoid a picky eater and identify food allergies earlier.
