I also just use a hand-held immersion blender, and put the food in a heavy glass measuring cup. It takes up very little room, and you can also use it to puree things like soups without having to take them out of the pot.

I have a Cuisenart. It works great. Seemed like a waste of money to but a contraption specifically for baby food.

Magic Bullet.

Compact & has multiple blades for all sorts of foods/smoothies. Comes with handled cups / pots and all with lids.

The small counter top was the most powerful and easy to use product I could find for such a "receipt".

I use the Magic Bullet to puree chicken for my son. It's really quick and easy to use. I don't have a food processor, but the Magic Bullet works great for me. I feed my son Gerber fruits & veggies, but make my own meats, so I use my finished Gerber veggie containers to separate the meat portions and freeze them.

I used the small Kitchen Aid food processor and I LOVED it! it was so easy to pick the consistency that I wanted and it held way more than I expected! I used it for my first and plan on using it for my second!

I have the Williams Sonoma babycook. It is pricey but I love it! Steams and purees food in one, easy to use and clean machine. No muss, no fuss. It is pricey ($150) but it holds up well. I have used mine several times a day with my now 9 mo old and plan to use it with baby #2. And, as well as it holds up, I expect I'll be able to sell it if I ever do decide to part with it. Maybe you can find one used on Craigs list or ebay.

Good luck!

I used an immersion blender many moons ago, still have the same one....this is also a way to puree foods to sneak veggies into other foods...=)

get the magic bullet.. purees food perfectly! and in small amounts so if your making veggies with your dinner and want to give some to your baby at that meal time you can just throw it in there without a huge machine to clean up!

Use a stick blender or immersion blender, then you can put the food in a tall thin cup, like a plastic cup you get from basketball games and puree away. I did this with all of my son's food. I still puree one banana and one avocado together for him, he loves it.

We used a Cuisinart food processor from BBB. Still use it now for other things. Worked extremely well. About $30-40 and it'll be good for other things.

I bought a Hamilton Beach immersion blender. It works great for baby food. You put the veggies in a cup and stick the blender in. It purees wonderfully.

I just use a hand held blender and that does a perfect job. I use it and love it. I recommend getting the Super Baby Food book to go along w/ making your own food. It is very helpful and I use it a lot. This is so much cheaper/healthier and easy to do!! You will be amazed at how much you save. We grow a bunch of our own veggies so that helps too. My daughter just loves avocado and you can't get that in baby food jars!! We are just trying out pasta right now and she loves that too.

dont waste your money on the Baby brand ones. Go to the store and invest in a regular food processor. It will do the same thing and you will be able to use it for larger amounts of food.
