Review: Baby Brezza One Step Baby Food Maker

As a mom of three, it is my mission to organize my household tasks in a way that saves me time. Keeping the children engaged throughout the day is a task in itself, so I can’t afford to spend hours in the kitchen, despite the fact that I enjoy it so much! I’ve been making homemade baby and toddler food for a few years now, and while I absolutely enjoy the health benefits of making their food myself, it can take up a considerable amount of time. Then, in comes Baby Brezza‘s One Step Baby Food Maker. I have been using it for the last few weeks and I have lots to share about it and my experiences with it.

The Baby Brezza One Step Baby Food Maker provides parents with a way to prepare homemade organic baby food without the fuss of standing in front of a stove while it’s cooking. At the push of a button, you can steam and blend a combination of ingredients to create gourmet masterpieces for your little ones. The bowl holds 2.5 cups and the machine only weights 3.3Lbs!

The second I put it down on the kitchen counter, I realized that it had little suctions at the bottom. This means that it won’t slide around, which is essential when handling hot food. The Baby Brezza One Step is straight forward and easy to use. Add your water, wash and cut ingredients of your choice, add them to the bowl, set the timer and the machine does the rest! It’s pretty user friendly. The kids helped me prepare my first batch and we all had fun. It’s not as loud as our conventional blender, and the blending process is fairly quick.

It makes me sound lazy to say that life is easier when everything is at the touch of a button, but in all honesty, having kids requires much of our time and energy, and any device that allows you to get work done with minimal attention is a great help.

Pros:
•At only 3.3Lbs, this compact machine is easily portable, which makes it perfect for travel. Take it on vacation and use in your hotel room, bring it with you while seeing family or friends. Not only is it convinient, but might just encourage someone else to make their own homemade baby food someday.
•It beeps before switching from steaming mode to blending mode. This feature seems simple, but it’s more useful than you think. Last week I was preparing food with it, and baby fell asleep. Once the beeping began, I was able to jump up and stop the second stage from taking place. Baby slept soundly for another two hours, and I was able to blend the food at a later time that day.
•BPA/phthalate free and easier to clean than my larger size blender
•A regular handmixer works fine for making baby food, but if you’re looking for a machine that does everything for you, this is the way to go.
•Compact space helps the food steam faster

Cons:
•Many parents are gravitating towards glass and silicone products that are designed for baby feeding. While the Baby Brezza One Step bowl is made of plastic, it’s also BPA free.
•Keep in mind that the bowl is NOT leak proof. If you prepare food and want to store some for the same day, it’s best to store it in an air tight

Notes/Tips on the Product:
•Although the Baby Brezza One Step is marketed as a tool for making purees, I noticed fairly quickly that it’s useful even after the early weaning stages. You can prepare steamed veggies, fish and more for both children and adults. Prepare tasty smoothies, applesauce and more with it. The possibilities are endless.
•Do you prepare your baby food in advance and freeze for later? Many parents are reluctant to use a microwave to defrost frozen food. The Baby Brezza one step allows you to defrost your homemade baby food.
•Afraid of overcooking or undercooking? Keep their cooking guide handy.

“Green Apple Sauce”

This one isn’t just for babies, but for everyone! Our two and five year old gobbled this down as well.

Ingredients:
2 apples of your choice
Handful of baby spinach
8-10 strawberries

Instructions:
1.Wash, peel and cut your apples
2.Wash your spinach
3.Steam both ingredients until apple slices are tender
4.Wash your strawberries
5.Blend everything together
6.Serve

Notes:
I froze the remaining portions in my Kiddo Feedo silicone freezer tray. The colour of the mixture may change slightly once frozen. This is okay. I chose to remove the skin from the apples, but you are free to leave it on. Just remember to blend well to avoid choking hazard for younger babies (no younger than six months).

Avocado & Mango

Ingredients:
1 Mango
2 avocados
2oz pumped breastmilk or cashew milk

Instructions:
Blend ingredients and serve immediately, as avocado may turn brown once it has been in contact with the air for too long. It’ll still be safe to eat, but this process changes the flavour slightly. I froze the remaining portions in my silicone @KiddoFeedo tray.
