While there are baby food makers that sterilize and warm milk, or multi-deckered for simultaneous cooking, we have the Whale's Love 5-in-1 Baby Food Maker that stands out with its Auto-Cleaning function.
Main Functions in Detail
As a 5-in-1 food maker, the Whale's Love features five working modes - Steaming, Steam-blend, Blending, Warm milk, Tank Cleaning) to enable you make different healthy and nutritional baby food all in one device.
This infant food maker can automatically steam and blend food material in one step without any transferring.
Just press the button and it will steam the food first before automatically blend it.
Besides, you get to also reheat baby food and warm milk using this device.
Yes, like Eccomum, it has a 3.1 inches diameter water tank, thus able to fit most milk bottles. Liquid in the bottle can be easily and quickly heated in few minutes so it's very fast and convenient.
What we really about this electric baby food maker is that it comes with a 1000ml blending bowl. Now, not many have this large capacity, which makes it perfect to cook several portions at bulk to save time.
Regardless, you should always ensure food in the bowl and water in the tank cannot reach above the maximum line.
Likewise, you should never put food/milk directly into the water tank - always put them in a bottle first before placing them in the water tank.
Here's a step-by-step guideline on how to operate the Whale's Love:
Note though, both the blending bowl and lid need to be locked clockwise in Steam/Blend/Steam-Blend mode. Otherwise, the device will not start operating for safety reasons.
Also, remember to remove the blending bowl when you're using the Warming or Auto-Clean functions.
Which brings us to our next point and the signature feature of the Whale's Love - the Auto Clean feature.
Designed with ease and practicality in mind, just add clean water into the tank, press one button on the digital control panel and the machine will start cleaning automatically.
This is truly an innovative and convenient add-on, undoubtedly, one of the biggest selling point of the Whale's Love because if you know about baby food makers, you will know that mould manifesting in the water tank is a common problem.
With this auto-clean function, it rinses out any possible residue that the human hand may not reach (i.e. slits) thus eliminating mould from growing.
All components are dishwasher safe, including the stainless steel 301 blades which are removable for separate cleaning. Don't worry, it is easy to install back once it's dry.
Other safety features include an Anti Dry and Auto Shut-Down function that works to protect the motor and to maximize the product lifespan.
The former will render the baby food maker stop working if water in the tank has run out while the latter will power off the appliance automatically if in standby mode, there is no operation within 5 minutes.
The large LCD touch control pane is easy to operate - both working status and working time can be checked easily through the screen and it is easy to select the settings and cooking time.
Best of all, you can do all these with just one hand!
Pros & Cons
Overall, we will say that the Whale's Love 5-in-1 is an electric baby food mill that is worth the money paid especially if you're one that dislike cleaning components.
It's one of the smallest and lightest baby food maker available in the market so for those that have limited counter space, this could very well be the best baby food maker for you!
