The Beaba Babycook is a great way to save money when it comes to baby food. Beaba was founded in 1989 in France. They are dedicated to providing technically innovative products to make life easier.
Scandinavian Child sent us a Beaba Babycook.
The Beaba Babycook is a steamer, blender, warmer and defroster. The bowl is made from unbreakable Polysulfone and the cooking basket from transparent polypropylene. It is BPA safe and is 11" x 5½" x 8" high.
The Beaba Babycook includes a 2½ cup capacity bowl, cooking basket, spatula and recipe booklet.
The first step is to steam the food. The booklet will tell you how much water you'll need with different types of food. I did carrots so I had to fill it to line 3.
Once you've measured how much food you'll need, you poor it into the steam part.
You'll place the diced food into the basket and lock the bowl and lid into place. If it is not locked in, the safety feature will not allow it to work.
Plug the Babycook in and turn the dial to steam.
When it's done, you'll stick the spatula through the handles on the cooking basket and pull it out.
With most food, you'll leave the water from the steam in the cooking bowl. Pour your steamed food in the the cooking bowl and lock it into place. The mixing lid will go on before the top when it's time to blend.
Turn the dial to blend, and leave it there until you have your desired consistency.
When you're done, you can either freeze the food into cubes or use immediately. To defrost the cubes, you fill the water up to the 1 and place a glass jar in the cooking basket. Once the food is defrosted, stir it with a spoon and serve.
Clean up couldn't be easier. The bowl and basket are both top-rack dishwasher safe. The Beaba Babycook is perfect for any food that you need to be pureed. There are many recipes out there that allow you to sneak pureed vegetables into them to make them more healthy.
I absolutely love my Beaba Babycook and give it two thumbs up. The ONLY thing that I would do differently is add the Multiportions in with it instead of having to purchase it separately. The Multiportions is a tray that you can use to freeze individual portions. You're going to need it, so I think it should just be included.
The Babycook is extremely easy to use and I'll never have to buy baby food. The recipe book gives some great ideas that I look forward to making for Isabella. I can just throw in whatever we're eating and blend it when she gets older. It also gives me peace of mind because I know I'll be the one making her food and it will be safer for her.
The Beaba Babycook retails for $150. You can click here for a list of retailers.
