You see, aside from the fundamental steaming and blending functions, defrosting and reheating are also commonly featured in most baby food makers. The Evla's, on top of those, adds a sterilizing and self-clean function which eventually set it apart and above the rest.
Eccomum, on the other hand, stood out with its milk-warming function. This is pretty rare to be honest, nonetheless, a most welcomed and brilliant design we have to say!
Main Functions in Detail
Steam and Blend
We'll start with Eccomum's steaming and blending functions first nevertheless.
Using a 360 rotating system, this baby food maker can steam all vegetables, fruit, meat, chicken and fish while keeping their nutrients without losing any of it.
But what we really like is its ability to steam and blend food in one step without any transferring.
With just a press of button, the Eccomum will steam the food before automatically blending it.
The 18/8 stainless steel detachable blades are sturdy and durable with premium precision. As a result, it makes it fast and easy to quickly chop/puree.
Perfect for making fresh fruits, vegetables, and meat puree, you get a consistency comparable to that of canned ones you buy from supermarkets.
The blades can also be individually cleaned - they are easy to remove and install but be careful while doing so because they are very sharp.
Now onto Eccomum's signature function - milk warmer.
Before heating the milk, add 250 ml of drinking water to the water tank and place the heating basket in the water tank.
It will take only a few minutes to heat the liquid in the bottle and the LED digital screen provides preset time/real time display.
How Eccomum incorporates this milk warmer function is through clever innovation - by making the water tank to be larger than average.
You see, most infant food makers will have a water tank for steaming purpose but that's just that - a water reservoir big enough just to store sufficient water for steaming.
However, Eccomum tweaks it slightly by designing their water tank to be larger at 3.1 inch, thereby big enough for most milk bottles to fit and be warmed up.
And because of this size, it also effectively eliminates the common problem of mould manifesting because the large diameter water tank is easier to clean.
Caution though, do not place the bottle directly on the hot plate below the bottle.
With a constant temperature setting, this baby food maker can keep milk and baby food at a constant temperature to prevent nutrition loss.
Capacity and Safety
As you can see from the picture above, this baby food maker comes with a steam basket, blending bowl/stirring cup, water measuring cup, blade, spatula and a pair of tongs besides the main machine itself.
The steam basket has a maximum capacity of 650ml which makes for a good size in making a quick meal, reheating baby food or cooking several portions at a time.
The stirring cup or blending bowl, on the other hand, has a 1000ml large capacity and it is made of Tritan Plastic, dishwasher-safe.
If you don't already know, this is a type of plastic that is BPA, Phthalate and Lead Free, meaning there is no more worrying about whether any harmful chemicals are getting into your baby’s food.
It also has an anti-dry protection function - power will be cut off and the machine stops working when water in the tank runs out.
The baby food maker comes with a LCD control panel that's easy to use so you can select the settings and cooking time that you want.
The working status and working time will be checked easily through the screen, so it is easy to select the settings and cooking preset time.
Simply press one button to steam the food and then press another button to chop it and meet all your baby needs.
Pros & Cons
Overall, we are very satisfied with the Eccomum Baby Food Maker. It is not jam-packed with functions, but those that it has, they are implemented and engineered well.
We'd especially recommend it to those who haven't already had a baby bottle warmer because you effectively get two equipments in one.
And at a price under $100, there really cannot be any more value for money than this.
