Buying for baby is a little overwhelming, to say the least — and this counts for just about every category, feeding included. Whether or not you’re set on making your own baby food, you may be wondering if you should add a baby food maker to your checklist.

Wise idea, according to many parents: Baby food makers come in handy for more than just what they’re designed to do. Most provide steaming and pureeing capabilities, which can be useful even for new parents who are looking to make a quick steamed side dish or blend up a delicious fruit smoothie. And if you use a baby food maker to whip up homemade meals for your baby, you’ll find several advantages.

Benefits of using a baby food maker

  • You save money. Like most baby-related products, store-bought baby food doesn’t come cheap. This is especially true if you opt for organic and pasture-raised ingredients that simply cost more to produce. Plus, manufacturers have to factor in many other costs, such as packaging, factory space and selling to grocery stores. But if you’re able to purchase the bare-bone ingredients separately, you can save big over time.
  • You know exactly what your baby is eating. Unless you read the ingredients list on absolutely everything, you don’t know the full story when it comes to what you’re feeding baby. Some products contain additives or excess sugar or salt, none of which fit into a healthy baby’s diet.
  • You’re using fresh ingredients. In addition to purchasing produce at the peak of freshness, the steaming process most baby food makers utilize allows for more nutrients to be left in the end result. You’ll feel good knowing that baby’s getting all of the vitamins and minerals he needs to grow and develop.
  • You can introduce new flavors. Making your own food is a great to introduce baby to the spices and herbs that you eat as a family. You can sneak some cinnamon into her sweet potatoes and curry powder into her carrots, for example.

Now that you understand some of the perks of purchasing a baby food maker, here are some of the very best ones on the market — and what you should know about each before making a purchase.
