This Baby Bullet package is the complete set for all your baby food requirements, including a silicone pop tray, a batch bowl, and a milling blade. The plastics are BPA, phthalate, and non-toxic, so there won’t be any harmful seepage into your baby food. .
On the downside, it is noisy, so you won’t be blending meals while your baby is asleep, and on the convenience stakes, you would have thought that the manufacturer would have made it dishwasher safe to make life easier.
That said, we love the way this blender helps to organize a week’s worth of meals, we love the accessories, and because it is small, it stores away until needed again.

This hand-held blender is no slouch when it comes to power. It has 12 speeds and a turbo function to boost the performance should you need it. Also, it has an 800-watt motor, so it is sure to tackle all the ingredients you throw at it, and it has a 600 ml blending cup that’s perfect for making baby food.
Stick blenders are ideal baby food makers because they are designed with small batches in mind, and there is less mess and washing up because the stick detaches so you can pop it in the dishwasher.
The ergonomic handle makes it comfortable to hold, and the anti-splash design of the blades means that you won’t end up wearing the contents of the blending jar.
What makes this blender stand out is that once you’ve made your baby food, it reverts to being a hand blender with multiple uses, like soups, sauces, dressings, omelets and more.
On the downside, it overheats if you use it for bursts of longer than a minute, and the stick element is awkward to remove for cleaning.
However, we like the fact this is an all-rounder in small-batch blending and has an 800-watt motor, oh, and since it’s an immersion blender, it’s easy to store away.
- A true all-rounder
- Powerful motor
- Dishwasher friendly
- Ergonomic handle
- Overheats quickly

This Hamilton Beach model is their entry-level single-serve blender. It isn’t a dedicated baby blender, but that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t deserve its place in our review, especially given the price.
Single-serve blenders are excellent baby food makers because they fulfill two purposes; they blend in small batches, ideal for baby size appetites, and they are typically expert at handling softer ingredients like fruit and vegetables, a core staple of any healthy babies diet.
This model has a 175-watt motor and a 14 oz capacity, and when you are done making baby food, it works brilliantly as a blend-and-go option for smoothies and shakes on the move.
The lid and jar are dishwasher safe, the plastic elements are food-grade and BPA-free, and because it is compact, it stores away easily when not in use.
On the downside, the blades are not removable, so getting inside to clean them can be a pain, and the design of the blending jar means that food sometimes gets stuck in the inner ridges, meaning that it takes longer to get a smoother blend.
The positive is the price and the fact it is a single-serve blender that makes excellent baby food as well as juices and smoothies as well.
- Compact and easy to store away
- Lid and jar are dishwasher safe
- Non-toxic plastic elements
- One-touch operation
- Not very powerful
- Blades are not removable
- Motor struggles with harder ingredients
This PopBabies blender is different from all the others in the review because this model is genuinely portable. It recharges via a USB port, so you could even charge it on the way to your destination, ready to use.
It has a 14 oz capacity, comes with a silicone ice cube tray and funnel for powders and shakes, and the bottle has a carry lid that seals in the ingredients. This is the perfect blender to take away on holiday or camping!
On the downside, it only has a narrow opening at the top of the blending jar, so the funnel is much needed, and the blades may struggle to blend anything other than soft fruits and vegetables. Also, it is loud when in use, and will need recharging after every ten uses.
On a positive note, this blender frees you to provide fresh dinners for your child anywhere, it charges in three to five hours and is dishwasher friendly.
- Compact and lightweight
- USB charger
- Ideal for camping and holidays
- Narrow jar entrance for ingredients
- Struggles with tougher ingredients
- Needs recharging every ten uses
Parents want to know that the ingredients in their baby’s diet are nutritious, wholesome, and more importantly, home-made. With that in mind, we have chosen the MagicBullet Baby Bullet as our HowToHome pick because of its fun design, decent power wattage, and accessory set that includes six date-dial jars that keep the food fresh for the days you need it.
The budget option is the Hamilton Beach Single-Serve Blender because it is capable of producing baby food in small batches, but doubles as a smoothie maker when you’re done, and all for a fraction of the cost of other blenders.
If you want a stick blender, again this means that besides making baby food, it has other uses, so we chose the KOIOS Immersion Blender because of the speed settings and the accessories that come as standard.
Finally, the portable option is the Pop Babies Personal Blender, which charges with a USB cable, meaning that you can take it anywhere and even charge it in the car. It also means that it is the ideal blender for holidays and camping trips in the RV.
Whichever blender you choose for baby food, nothing beats knowing that every spoonful your child eats is wholesome, healthy, and nutritious.
