For something simple and straightforward, the Baby Brezza Glass Baby Food Maker is the one we'd go for.
This electric baby food maker does just two things - steam and blend. If this is what you're after, then read on to find out why it is able to make it to our Top 10 Best Baby Food Maker list (psst, it's the ONLY food maker with a glass jar).
Main Functions in Detail
The Baby Brezza has two selling points: a signature Glass Jar and 1-Step Steam & Blend function.
Let's start with the latter first.
This electric baby food maker is able to automatically steam and blend baby food in one step without any transferring.
Yes, the glass bowl is both a blender and steamer itself so there is no need to transfer hot food from a steamer basket to a blender. Less steps mean less mess!
Just press a button and the Baby Brezza will first steam the food before automatically blending it. Of course, you can choose to steam or blend only, if need be. In as little as 10 minutes, you will have delicious, homemade baby food ready for serving.
Compare that to say, the Beaba Babycook - you will need to first press the steam button before removing the steam basket and then transfer the steamed food into the blending bowl for blending - a 1-button push to achieve all that is definitely a much more convenient and attractive option, to say the least.
And that is generally the case with most baby food makers, although if you have read our review on other baby food makers, you will know that Baby Brezza is not the only baby food maker that is able to do so (this one here does it very well too).
But to have this functionality with a glass blending jar, well, Baby Brezza is definitely the first, and only. And this brings us to its signature Glass Jar.
As mentioned, this is the only baby food maker in the market that comes with a glass blending jar.
Although others' plastic jars are usually BPA-free, you will somewhat feel more reassured and safer with a glass jar because you do not need to worry about any harmful chemicals getting into your baby’s food.
Many moms feel uncomfortable heating a plastic container repeatedly to steam food at high temperature for health concerns.
The glass bowl means you can now minimize food’s contact with plastic, a feature that most moms certainly appreciate for it means healthier and safer food for baby.
For further assurance, all plastic parts contained in this product are BPA-free.
Besides having a 4-cup capacity (which is pretty large by standard), the glass jar, as well as blades, are also dishwasher-safe.
Another thing that we like about the Baby Brezza Glass Baby Food Maker is that it only has two detachable parts – water/steam tank and glass bowl which means it is very easy to clean.
The steam tank can be opened completely for easy filling and cleaning (so you don’t have to worry about calcium build-up), likewise, it uses a removable water tank as well that is just as easy to clean.
As opposed to the usual pouring water directly into the steam tank, we feel that this is a less hassle way to refill water as you can shove the opening directly under a running tap.
And when we say this is a simple and easy-to-use baby food maker, we truly mean it.
Its control panel has 3 cook settings only - just press the button of the setting you want then hit 'Start" and that's it!
The goodness does not stop there – a spatula and recipe booklet is included so you will have plenty of menu choices to cook for your baby!
Pros & Cons
For those that think the Baby Brezza Glass Baby Food Maker is limiting on the functions department, know that this electric baby food mill is not designed to be that.
Rather, straightforwardness and ease of use are its main purpose. You see, not everyone need functions like sterilizing and milk warming - some could very well already have those in separate appliances.
So for what it's designed and meant for, we think the Baby Brezza does a very good job in both implementation and execution.
