Top 3 Food Blender & Steamers For Puree 2016
Preparing meals for your baby is an increasing trend as more and more parents are become aware of the sugars and salts that go into baby food. Below are three baby food blenders (and a steamer!) made specifically to retain all the nutrients and vitamins your baby needs. It’s also a lot more cost effective for parents to produce their own food for their children.
Beaba Babycook Original 4 in 1 Review – Our Number 1
The Beaba Babycook was designed by the French, and you know how important food is to them. It really is the bees knees when it comes to baby food blenders. It comes with four functions: steam, blend, defrost and reheat. It is more than suitable for use on vegetables, meat, fish and starchy food like pasta and rice.
The Beaba Babycook is totally BPA free and is a compact little piece of kit that sits neatly on your kitchen counter. This is a great blender as it will steam your vegetables, meat and fish in less than fifteen minutes. But because it is steam cooked, food retains all the vital nutrients and vitamins needed to help your baby thrive.
It comes with a manual option for tailoring your blending needs, so you alter the consistency of the food depending on the child’s age: smooth, pureed or chunks.
As previously mentioned the Beaba is compact and can be taken away on trips with ease and it is also very easy to clean. It comes with an 800ml container making it easy to prepare a lot of food in advance for freezing.
Something to consider when it comes to technology is the level of noise. Having a young baby and a loud blender might be counter intuitive however the Beaba is relatively quiet for a blender.
The Beaba Babycook is great for those with not a lot of time but still want nutritious healthy food for their baby.
Features: 800 litre food container – Four functions – Suitable for us with all food groups
Price: High end
Babymoov Food Processor Review – Number 2
The Babymoov is a great choice for new parents as it has five functions that you can start to use from birth. It has the ability to warm up baby bottles, sterilize, steam, defrost and blend. It has the capacity to cook 1500ml and blend 600ml, the biggest capacity available on the market.
It is fitted with an LCD screen to easily control the different functions and two baskets to separate food groups and retain vital nutrients. By supplying two baskets, it allows different food groups to be cooked at the same time despite having different cooking times. Thus ensuring that the food retains all the vitamins and nutrients that a growing baby needs.
The Babymoov is the only baby blender on the market that is suitable to use from birth making it a great buy for prolonged use right up until baby is on solids. Even then it can be used to steam vegetables and meat so can be used for as long as you like.
This great little blender can be used to make soups, sauces, and purees as well as also sterilising jars and accessories. It’s got a large capacity making it really useful if you have twins or a big family.
The beauty of the two baskets means that food requiring different cooking times can be cooked separately so that none of the goodness is lost in over cooking.
It comes with an LCD screen making it very easy for you to select the appropriate cooking time. It’s very easy to cook with and it’s plain sailing to clean as most of the parts can be put into a dishwasher. This is actually very suitable for weaning as it creates really smooth purees and of course much less to wash up if you were to cook and puree separately.
The Babymoov really is a great buy, especially if you have more than one child and not a lot of space. It’s so compact and comes with a lot of useful accessories. It has the capacity to sterilize bottles, steam, reheat, defrost and blend making it your 5 in 1 godsend.
Features: Two baskets – 5 functions and straight from birth – LCD screen
Price: Mid range

Top 3 Blenders for Frozen Fruits
Using frozen fruit in smoothies and drink has become something of a given. Frozen fruit is a lot easier than buying fresh fruit everyday for smoothies and you don’t end up wasting out of date food. But frozen fruit is a lot harder to blend, and so you need a strong and powerful blender to handle the frozen fruit.
Nutri Ninja with Auto IQ Set Review – Our Number 1
The Nutri Ninja is a fantastic option if you are looking for a strong blender to crush ice and frozen fruit. The Nutri Ninja comes with a 1000w motor and strong pro extractor blades to ensure your hard ingredients are blended to perfection. It comes with a number of accessories to give you ultimate flexibility in what you make.
The Ninja comes with two blend settings: blend and ultra blend. The Ultra Blend setting is the best to use when using frozen fruit and vegetables. The Ultra Blend setting carefully extracts nutrients from frozen fruit, ice, kale, carrots and nuts.
Auto IQ is a new feature of the Nutri Ninja, which accurately decides how long to blend for, so no more guessing. It runs through its own cycles of blending, so you can just set it and get on with what you are doing and when its bleeps, your smoothie is done. It goes through its own cycle at different blending speeds so that you get all the nutrients and vitamins from your fruit and veg.
There is no assembly required, the cup just clicks into the blade and you are ready to blend. What it lacks in size it makes up for in strength. The blades can more than handle ice and frozen vegetables. You also get some recipe books for free to use on your Ninja.

It’s fitted with removable stainless steel blades that can easily be removed for washing but are ultra strong to tackle even the freshest of beetroot.
The beauty of this is it comes with 2 cups, with seal lids, which means you can make your smoothie and literally go. It also makes really good milkshakes too if you are feeling in need of a sweet dessert.
This is a great little blender if you are looking for something for small and compact but yet incredibly strong, tough enough to blend frozen fruit and ice.
Features: 1000w motor – ice crushing technology – Auto IQ technology
Price: High end

The Tower T12022 is the perfect blender if you use frozen fruit a lot in your smoothies. It is great for making not only smoothies, but it’s also great for soups and dips. It comes with a manual dial so you can control the speed at which your fruit and vegetables are blended, meaning you can create a smooth soup or a lumpy salsa.

Best Smoothie Makers UK 2016
There are many powerful blenders in the market today. With the relatively new and stylish mini blenders which offer convenience more than anything else; there has been a significant drop in the price of blenders today. A good thing for us consumers, and not such a good thing for the manufacturers who compete on price to win our business!
While the “mini blenders” are a lot more affordable than the fully loaded, high-end blenders, they will never have the sheer power to blitz the foods that the blenders do! At the same time, if all we are looking to do is make the odd smoothie and not use it for anything else (like making soup, food processing, chopping, churning etc.), then why pay the premium prices for the high-end blenders?
Top Five Best Blenders For Smoothies.
I personally have a smoothie blender which is separate from my other blenders and food processors. I own a Blend-Active and use it on a daily basis for my smoothies before work and it is so amazingly easy and good to use; I do find myself looking forward to using it daily. Without giving my review away in the introduction, please see below the write-up’s.
Breville Blend Active Review
As covered in this post, the Blend-Active is the best blender for smoothies in the market today, and for good reason! It is affordable, it is powerful, it is easy and hey, it just works! (sorry Apple, but it can blitz you, amongst other fruits too! – see what I did there?!)
As I have gone into detail for the Blend-Active in the above linked post, I will keep this review short and sweet!
The best features on why to go for the Blend Active;
As per my review and I may be a little biased as I own one myself, but this is the perfect blender. The best blender you will ever buy if you are looking to only make smoothies and are an active person. It is powerful enough to crush ice cubes and frozen vegetables as well and it is very easy to use. This, along with the fact that it is dishwasher safe, small in size and has slim shaker bottles which look good and fit nicely in your gym bag or car drink holder; makes the Blend-Active the Best Blender For Smoothies In 2015!
Andrew James 4 in 1 Multifunctional 1 Litre Smoothie Maker
Now this is a very interesting product and the second best blender of 2015. It boasts of being a good blender as well as being a grinder and a juicer all for under £30.00!
The smoothie maker has a large bottle capacity of 1 litres so your can blend more in a single blitz! Very easy to use and still powerful at 220 watts, the smoothie maker is as versatile with its powerful blades, as it is user friendly.
The Best Features;
A very good blender indeed. Don’t let the power at 220 watts put you off as where it lacks in power, it makes up in function. This is a very versatile blender, it can do a lot more than just make smoothies and it is easy to use and clean.
My only comment is, being a lower wattage than the Breville (and the others), it doesn’t seem to blend the fruit quite as smooth as the Blend-Active. For versatility, a very good buy!
Kenwood SB055 Smoothie 2GO Review
A great machine, with a low price tag but good build and received very well amongst its customers, The SB055 Smoothie 2GO delivers and does it very well!
The SB055 Smoothie 2GO is a great blender for smoothies, it has all the convenience characteristics that we need bar a few small flaws. The first one being, it will struggle with frozen vegetables, while it handles ice very well (assuming they are fairly small ice cubes), things like frozen greens and carrots aren’t recommended. The goblets it comes with are a little too wide for my gym bag pocket and not convenient as I would like. On the plus point, it has adjustable speed settings and a pulse mode which the Blend-Active lacks.
A good blender and a must if you want to be able to control the speed and have the ability to pulse your drinks.
Duronic BL1200 Review
With a very powerful motor at 350 watts, and the ability to auto clean, along with adjustable speed settings makes the BL1200 another very good buy!
A very good blender, very powerful and versatile. It can do all the things the other blenders can do, with more power and a great added function of auto clean.
The BL1200 falls into a slightly higher price bracket, but you will get what you pay for. This isn’t a blender for those only interested in a quick smoothie – although it can still do that; it will also do a whole lot more!
Russell Hobbs 21350 Mix and Go Blender Review
A very stylish little blender and (in my opinion) the best looking of all the blenders in this post. The 21350 will look great in your kitchen, providing your other appliances are white – of course!
Dishwasher safe blades, 300 watts of power to blend, 2 x slim bottles with a little holder; another great blender for smoothies!
The dishwasher safe blades/bottle makes it easy to clean. The blades are powerful enough to crush ice and frozen vegetables without an issue and the slim, leak-proof bottles are handy for when you are on the move!
No buttons on this machine, it works on pressure. You press the bottle down on the blender and it blends.
A good blender as far as power and convenience goes but it lacks the robust build of the Blend-Active and even the SB055.
