About the Beaba Babycook Classic

Now that you've finally gotten the hang of baby care, all of a sudden, it's time to start feeding her solids. My god, what is her pediatrician going to think of next?

 

There's no need to get overwhelmed: feeding your baby her first nutritious meals is easy with the Beaba Babycook Classic, an all-in-one appliance that lets you steam, puree, and defrost homemade baby food. Using the Babycook is simple:

 

  1. Peel, core, and chop fruit, veggies, or meat.
  2. Steam your food in the Babycook – it takes only 15 minutes, and steaming cooks your ingredients without losing any vitamins or nutrients. And because the Babycook is a "set it and forget it" device, you don't need to keep an eye on it while it's steaming. Unlike stovetop steaming, if an emergency calls you away from the kitchen for 45 minutes, you won't come back to overcooked food.
  3. Puree your food in the Babycook. Since you're using the same device, there's only one bowl to clean – and the cooking bowl and cooking basket are dishwasher-safe.
  4. Feed your baby!

 

Because the Beaba Babycook makes the process so effortless, you'll find yourself experimenting with a wider variety of foods, since if she refuses a new food, you won't have wasted a lot of time preparing it. And of course, extra portions that you put in the freezer can be defrosted in the Babycook, too.

 

Your Beaba Babycook doesn't stop being useful when your baby moves on to finger-food, either: it's a simple countertop steamer that's great for preparing nutrient-packed veggies for the whole family, and it's a handy little food processor as well. Use your Babycook to prepare smoothies, purees for nutritious popsicles, mashed potatoes, and more. The unit comes with a cooking bowl, a steaming basket, a steaming top, a pureeing top, and a spatula; the bowl is BPA-free, so no nasty chemicals will leach into your food.

 

Need some extra storage? Try the Beaba Multiportions Tray - the perfect solution for freezing baby food. Time to mix it up a little? Cook rice, pasta, and other grains in the Beaba Babycook Rice Cooker. Not sure where to start? Check out the Beaba Babycook Book full of recipes and tips!

Highly recommend!

Pros:

Easy To Use, Durable, Easy To Clean

This is the most fabulous product & it's been on my counter since I got it and I use it daily. I love that the bowl is sized perfectly to make 1 week (7 portions) of whatever you are steaming. I take an afternoon and do one vegetable after another and freeze. Once frozen I pop them out and freeze in labelled containers which gives me many options for a daily menu. As my child grows I puree the batches a little less to offer more texture. I did the stovetop/steamer/blender thing with my first child but this is so much easier, less hassle, easier cleanup. I could go on and on! Best baby/child product I've had through two kids!

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Beaba Baby Cook

Pros:

Easy To Clean, Easy To Use

Cons:

Too small

I found that my food processor worked just as well and I was able to prepare more food. For the price tag, I don't think it was worth it.

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Beaba Babycook

Pros:

Durable, Easy To Clean, Easy To Use

I love the Babycook. We got it when we started making our own baby food. It is easy to use and I love the steaming feature. While it is a bit small, I found it way easier to use than our large food processor because of how little space it takes up on the counter. I do find it a little difficult to change the consistency effectively without making it a really smooth puree, but that may just be me :-)

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

One of my best baby purchases ever.

Pros:

Easy To Clean, Easy To Use, Durable

I originally purchased my Beaba in France before they arrived in the US, so had to buy a power adapter to go with it. This is a WONDERFUL item if you are committed to cooking for your child. Food prep is remarkably easy, and unlike steaming on the stove, you can step away while your food is being prepared. I would make individual veggies or bleds, and would make a large enough portion for a fresh meal plus extra to freeze as cubes for later on. The purees come out extremely smooth, as the blade is positioned very low. I used this EVERY DAY while my daughter was eating purees, and continue to use it now for a healthy steamed snack (carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, etc), or even as a quick side of steamed veggies for the family. I even use it to make homemade popsicles with pureed berries, peaches, etc. Thanks to this machine, my little girl never ate out of a jar. Fresh food was easy to make after a long workday, and on active/busy weekends!

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

I like it!

Pros:

Easy To Use, Durable, Easy To Clean

I really like the Babycook. With the[$]price tag I doubt that making my own baby food will ever work out to being cheaper than buying at the store, but I like that making my own food eliminates the waste of plastic or glass containers. Plus I can make more interesting things than I can buy (I've never seen jarred mango, broccoli, etc.) I can cook an entire large sweet potato or a 1/2 of a butternut squash in one batch so I don't find the size to be a problem. The steamer turns itself off when it is done cooking so I don't have to watch a timer. The bowl is BPA-free, your kitchen doesn't get hot from the steaming on the stove, your little one can be close to it and still be safe if they're like mine and don't like mom to be out of sight. It's so small and quick to set up that I don't mind cooking something up quickly on a weeknight because it's not a production to use like steaming on the stove and pureeing in the food processor. Bottom line: can you make your own baby food without this? Yes. Does the Babycook make it a little easier? Definitely. Ask for it for your shower so you don't feel guilty about the price!

Great design but not useful enough for $

Pros:

Easy To Use

This was given to us as a shower present and I was so excited to start using it when our son was about 6 months old. It is very easy to use but my biggest gripe was that it was taking way too long to get any cooking done.

 

Yeah, it only takes about 15 minutes from start to finish to make some lovely pureed squash but I wanted to feed several different types of food at each meal and still have leftovers for the next day.

 

I ended up using my regular food processor and a stainless steel mesh strainer over some simmering water and I was able to steam and puree an entire week's worth of food and put into ice cube trays, in the same time it took me to make three SMALL purees in the Babycook.

 

Just not worth it.

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
