Review and giveaway: The Original Baby Bullet

Back in December, I got an email asking me if I'd like to review the Baby Bullet. I'd seen it advertised on TV and thought it looked cool, but since my kids are out of the baby food stage, I thought that I'd try it out, write a review and pass it on to someone with an actual baby. Yeah, that's SO not going to happen :) Before I get into the details, here's a bit about the Baby Bullet.
The Original Baby Bullet™ Food Processor allows you to easily make and store your very own healthy and delicious baby food. Simply place the batchbowl or the short cup on the high-torque power base, press down, twist and your making baby food. The batchbowl is perfect for creating large amounts of baby food, while the short cup comes in handy to mix and store ingredients. With the baby blend blade you can puree and blend, while the milling blade is great for milling grains to make cereals with the short cup. Storage cups feature a date dial to show the date you created the food, while the batch tray allows you to freeze large batches. Batchbowl, short cups, blades and storage cups are dishwasher safe (top shelf only).

When the box arrived, Ethan excitedly exclaimed "Mom! I saw that on TV!" After he calmed down, we unpacked the box and lined everything up on the counter. Since I had a fruit bowl full of fruit, I started cutting up pears and threw them into the Baby Bullet.  Seconds later, I had pureed pears for the kids.  Delicious and incredibly easy. I like the little storage cups with the date dial- very handy for making food ahead of time and having it ready when it's needed. 

Since we got the Baby Bullet, we've made applesauce, pear puree, and a mango sauce for the fish dinner we ate one night. It's been a great way to get the kids involved in making their own food, which is a good way to get them more interested in also eating it!

Enjoying the fruits of our labor

For myself, I've been using the short cup to make myself a yogurt and fruit smoothie every morning. I love that the short cup gives me the ability to make just the amount I need, and cleanup takes just seconds. And having your breakfast smiling at you in the morning is a pretty fun way to start the day :)

My breakfast

All in all, I think this is a sturdy, useful, versatile, easy-to-use tool to have in my kitchen and I'm really looking forward to coming up with new things to make for the whole family. 

And I have good news! One of you will win the same box of fun that I received- it contains the Baby Bullet, the short cup, batch cup, spatula, two blades, storage cups and batch tray. Open to US mailing addresses only, enter at the Rafflecopter widget below.
