For a baby food maker that has been around for quite a while, the Cuisinart BFM-1000 Food Maker is one that you know you can rely on for its durability.
Nonetheless, do not expect it to have as many fancy functions as other newer/modern models given technology back then wasn't as advanced, but for what it has, they are engineered and implemented well.
Main Functions in Detail
The Cuisinart BFM-1000 Baby Food Maker has 3 functions – steam, chop/puree and bottle warmer.
To operate, it cannot be any easier. Simply turn the turn-dial button to the setting that you want and that’s it!
Like Whale's Love and Baby Brezza, this one here allows you to steam and puree food in the same bowl so there is no need to transfer hot food from steamer basket to blending jar, something that may be quite hard to do when the steamer basket is hot. Also, no mess is created.
This appliance prides itself in having a patent-pending blade lock system - the blade is held in place while you pour food into it.
On top of that, the steam blade creates an even distribution of steam which results to quicker and more efficient cooking.
A bowl seal prevents spitting and improve steaming, while the powerful motor enables quick steaming and precise chopping. Once done, or when water has evaporated, the automatic shutoff safety feature will kick in to keep things safe.
The built-in bottle warmer function heats up a baby’s bottle to just the right temperature.
This feature is commended by most users as they do not have to worry about what temperature is ideal for warming purpose.
The 4-cup bowl capacity allows you to cook a significant amount in one-go, and you can store whatever that is left in the refrigerator or freezer for the next couple of meals.
Also, it comes with a special Cuisinart Baby recipes booklet as well as a spatula, bottle adapter ring and integrated measuring cup.
