On a daily basis, cooking for babies with a multifunction robot saves time … while ensuring good nutritional quality.
All you need to know: How to choose Baby Food Processor
One or two tanks, that’s the whole problem! And that is really a matter of personal taste. In fact, either you prefer to cook meat, fish and vegetables separately, which do not necessarily require the same cooking time; or you are more like a “tote” and opt for a single bowl where all the ingredients are cooked and mixed together.
Another option for some mothers: cook meat or fish in a separate pan for the whole family, and take just the portion needed by the baby. In this case, a single cooking bowl may suffice. Another important choice criterion: size, depending on the size (or absence) of the worktop.
Because do not imagine putting away and taking your robot out of the closet every day. It must be accessible at all times. Finally, some models also offer to heat the bottles , an interesting offer if you buy the robot when the baby is born.
As for the defrosting function , it is practical for not cooking every day … provided that the tank allows the preparation of several portions.
Should You Buy The Used Food Processor?
Whatever your purchasing network, necessarily opt for a recent model because old devices may contain in particular bisphenol A in the composition of their plastic of the food bowl.
This substance was banned by law in 2013 in the manufacture of all infant food containers. But still a few months or even years, it was possible that old models are still marketed.
By internet , ask your salesperson to give you a little demonstration on one or two key functions (cooking, mixing). So you can judge the condition of the engine and the quality of the blade.
If you buy it directly from the seller, carefully observe every corner of the baskets and the base of the motor screw thread to ensure the good hygiene of the device.
In any case, ask for the instructions for use and the recipe booklet provided if necessary, compare the content of what the seller offers you and what is supplied in a new version. Especially small joints, spatulas and other very useful accessories that often cannot be obtained as a spare part.

Thanks to the “cyclone effect” impulse mixing, the consistency of the mixed foods adapts well to the age of the child (with even the possibility of making smoothies!). The bowl offers an XL capacity to prepare several meals (approx. 5 for a one-year-old baby) or even a family puree.

Super stable, it is convenient to handle (large handle) and easy to clean. You can find additional recipe ideas on the site and the app. Just we find it a bit long to cook when we fill it completely (say 25/30 min). It also knows how to reheat and thaw!

Very sophisticated, it is well designed with its large capacity of 1500 ml for cooking and 700 ml for mixing and good speed. We appreciate its two stackable steam baskets to cook separately, for example meat or fish and vegetables on another floor.
It requires planning a lot of space on the worktop but a tip: you can separate the two blocks and keep only one of the uses (blender or cooker). The keys are super detailed and it indicates the time remaining. In addition, it can be personalized with an interchangeable plastic shell to match it to the kitchen (optional).
Simple and inexpensive, Lidl Lupilu 2 in 1 Baby Food Cooker
Special low budget, it is effective! It steams and mixes any baby food. The bowl, lid and basket are dishwasher safe. A grid at the bottom of the bowl allows the cooking juice to flow and collect it to then wet the mash, for example. We like its easily accessible open handle and its large single knob to turn to select the desired function.
Due to its appreciable compactness in a small kitchen or if you do not have the soul of a cook, its capacity is limited to 500ml for the steamer basket and 700ml for the blender jug. Suddenly, it is perfect for a day’s meal and you can also mix cooked meat separately for example.

Its cooking speed (the heating time is relative to the water) allows you to make a simple and tasty dish even in the evening when you come home from work. But suddenly, necessarily it takes a little more space than a less family model. But, of course, all the accessories are stored inside, including the rice basket and the tail of the lid!
