baby food grinder?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have been looking at the Tommee Tippee baby food grinder, an electric one. Has anyone used this and is it any good?

I tried the crank style, like Happy Baby and KidCo. They won't grind up anything that is not easily ground up with a fork in the first place.

Any recommendations?

I have not tried an electric baby food grinder. I liked my Happy Baby crank one, but you are right - it would not work so well on tougher foods. It also left the food still a bit chunky.

Do you have a food processor? Those are usually bulky, but they do the job. What about one of those coffee bean grinders? I've used mine to grind oats and flax seeds.

I have a coffee bean grinder that works great for herbs, flax, oats like you said. I'm afraid to grind wet foods in it. Will I ruin it?
I used the ground quick oats to make baby oatmeal.

It was pretty cheap. I'll just try it and see what happens.

Personally, I wouldn't spend the money for an electric baby food grinder. Use a blender or food processor that you already probably have. I raised my two girls on home made baby food and even wrote a book on it and all I used was those two appliances.

yeah, my braun hand blender (i've had some others that were sheer hell to clean, and no guts to the motor) rocks for baby food.

I have a crank model, and your right they wont grind anything that cant be mushed by a fork. Thats is till I sharpened the blade on it, now it grinds
