Last weekend I had the opportunity to give a Baby Brezza to a great friend of mine for her baby shower. I was very excited about this opportunity since I had discussed baby food making with her and this was something she was interested in. Since I used what I already had in my kitchen to make wholesome baby food, I never experienced the ease of having an all in one baby food maker. I didn’t think it was necessary, until I started reading up on the features of the Baby Brezza (pronounced Bret Za.)
Baby Brezza really is the only machine you will need when making baby food (besides your knife or peeler and cutting board.) The Baby Brezza allows you to steam AND blend your baby food in one place – no more boiling pots and dirty food processors. When I would make baby food, it would be a weekend marathon for me. I would go to Whole Foods in the morning, purchase fruits, veggies, and meat for the week, then I would start the steaming process in a steam basket and mix up the foods in a blender. After that I would transfer them over to ice cube trays. As you can imagine, this is a multi-step process that took an entire day. After each veggie or fruit was done steaming and blending, I would have to wash everything and start over.
With the Baby Brezza, all you have to do is chop up your foods, throw them in the machine and let them steam. After they finish steaming, you blend them and VOILA! Homemade baby food is on the table! If you want to kick up the easiness notch just a bit, you can even put the machine on auto which steams AND blends while you are snuggling with your little one or folding that ever present basket of laundry in your room.
My friend didn’t register for the Baby Brezza because she had never heard of it. When we were sorting out her gifts in the baby’s room she examined the box and stated how cool it was that she was able to easily make her own baby food. I’m sure if she wasn’t so exhausted after her long day, she would have opened the box and tried it out right then and there!
This Baby Brezza allows you to:
• Steam and Blend Steam only
• Blend only
Cleaning is a breeze, too, with just four dishwasher-safe parts.
