Sorry I don’t know anything about baby food, but could you return it and get the machine you want? It seems like that may be the best solution.. You don’t want to be stressed out over a gift!!

Baby food is easy to make- no recipes needed.

When cooking vegetables for the family, leave out the salt until you have removed some cooked vegetables to puree for the baby.

Fruits can be cooked separately and do not need added sugar. Babies love bananas and they do not need to be cooked.

Meats can be steamed then pureed.

All of these can be frozen in ice cube trays and the cubes then transferrred to freezer bags labelled with the contents. It is then really quick and easy to thaw out a cube of fruit, veg or meat then reheat in the microwave.

My friend just got us a book. When I have it in hand, I’ll share the title.. but she does everything with the blender.

Maybe this will help, but I started a thread not too long ago about making baby food and the lovely bees gave me some great suggestions on books and websites… Check it out..

 

Need good references for making baby food

You may want to take a look at Smitten Kitchen.  She started a baby food blog on the side and in the “about” section she links to the tools she’s using.

I plan on making my own baby food, but I am sure I will sometimes buy it, too (esp. when travelling!)

I already own SO many kitchen gadgets, that I don’t plan on buying anything new for the making of the food (though, maybe for the freezing) 

I 2nd the previous WB post to get more info, but I think once you get used to the bigger processor, it will be more useful in the long run.

I’m making my own food as well. I plan on using a blender and ice cube trays. I’m excited to read the info provided above. My mom cloth diapered and made her own baby food. It seemed so much simpler watching it as child 25 years ago!
