Definitely try it out–i managed to use mine a lot when I was on that soft food diet. It got it pretty close, but i think my big problem with it was that I could only do these tiny portions at a time. Obviously not a problem for baby food making. It’s not like you’ll be making Baby Roddy hummus =]. But it did squish up my carrots nicely. Pureed carrots are not very tasty, by the way….=]
Could you buy a second set of blades and a second plastic container thingy for your food processor and label that “baby only” if your magic bullet doesn’t work out?
If you’re really concerned, make sure you don’t put hot, freshly steamed food in the equipment (the steam alone can cause some breakdown–think like when you overcok soup in a plastic bowl and it bubbles? Yeah, gross) but if you let it cool all the way before squishing it up, that’d be safer. I know i’m guilty of putting hot foods in my magic bullet and letting it go (especially sauce-making! i use it ALL THE TIME to make dressings and sauces with fresh herbs when i don’t want chunky herbs) I actually worked with bisphenol A a lot in college when I had a senior project (I was creating some kind of fluorescent blue epoxy and the main polymerizing component was bisphenol A) and I did a buttload of research on it because something was wrong with our bisphenol A (it broke down and wouldn’t polymerize so it was fail after fail) and i was really concerned when I found out i was working with a bad batch. There was huge media hype at the time about it, too…
Ok i wrote a novel. Sorry about that!
