Stainless Baby Food Mill Review

It's hard to believe Baby E is ten months old already! But guess what? He doesn't have a single tooth! This means he can't just chew whatever I make for a meal. It was timely to receive this Stainless Steel Baby Food Mill for review from NaturalAtHome.com. We try to avoid plastic whenever possible, so I love that this gadget is  made completely out of stainless steel. I really like the simplicity of it, it doesn't need to be plugged in and I can use it in a pinch. I am suspecting Baby E will find her own uses for it too if she can get her hands on it.

To use it, you just put the food in, it has to be soft, and you turn the crank. The plate inside pushes the food through the 'colander' and it comes out the bottom. Simple! It's also really easy to wash, you just push down on  the top and it comes apart in just two washable pieces. So there aren't small parts to loose. 

It's also great for making apple, cranberry, and tomato sauce. You could get pretty creative with how you can use it. I wouldn't use it for making really large batches of something, your best bet would probably be a food processor (which we do not have). But it's perfect for baby food and small batches of sauce. Of course, if you just have a thing for hand powered tools and don't like electricity - this is for you too. [wink]

I make a big pot of soup that we eat for lunch, I put all the cooked veggies, potatoes, and chicken into the stainless food mill and quickly mush it up for Baby T. I was never a fan of store bought baby food, I'm actually not even a fan of making my own - I'm a little lazy. I really don't have time to make separate meals just for the baby. So this handy tool works well with our approach of letting the baby eat whatever we are eating. I highly recommend it if you have an infant who is starting to explore solids!
