4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Blender for the price of $25, February 21, 2014
This review is from: Kalorik Chopper/Baby Food Maker, White/Yellow, 2-Cup (Kitchen)
I received this as a gift. If left to my own devices, I would have skipped getting a baby food maker as we're pretty thrifty and we have a hand immersion blender which is fine for blending steamed veggies and whatnot. But I like that it heats milk and sanitizes pacifiers as well.

I have only used this once to test it out, so I will post an update down the line if my opinion changes.

Out of the box, everything works. I washed and prepped the machine, then followed instructions in the booklet to steam and blend carrots. The steaming function worked great. The hang up my husband and I noticed is that, as another reviewer mentions, the amount it directs you to steam (100g) is not enough to fill the blending container enough to properly blend it. The food gets stuck under the blades and against the sides. We added water and were able to get a nice blend. I think steaming and blending 200g would work better so next time I will give that a try.

I don't have an issue with the fact that the steaming basket is separate and that the food has to be transferred to the blending container after inserting the blade.

I definitely noticed that food gets into the little inaccessible steaming compartment and that this could create a big issue. However, my husband suggested doing what we do with our Vitamix-- blending soapy water for a few seconds in the blending compartment after use. This flushed out all food particles. Quick and easy fix.

Currently this is on sale for $25, and that's a good price. I think my gift-giver paid full price, which is steep for this... but if you are on a budget and looking for a baby food maker that steams and blends, you can definitely make this one work for you.
