I am about ready to start my baby on solids and I would like to find a good food processor that will process the food enough to be gentle for my little girl. Any ideas? I also don't want to spend a fortune on it. I found one that was for babies but it was $150. I have to believe that there are cheaper ones. Let me know what you use and if you like it. Thank you.

I personally have a 12 cup Cuisinart food processor, that I LOVE but unless it's something you'll use for other food applications other then baby food, I don't suggest it. Don't get a baby food specific processor. That's a bit of a gimmick. Any processor, mini food chopper or blender will do the job. Before I had my food processor, I used my blender (a Waring Pro) for blending baby food. A little cheap mini chopper (about $10 new) should do the job pretty well, too just on a smaller scale.

I have a 1 cup electric chopper that cost less that 20 dollars, when my son was starting solids I would use it to fix his meals, it holds about two meals worth so if you don't want to make that much just experiment to see how much makes a meal.. I use this chopper for everything and would go right out and buy another one if this one ever broke. You can find them at garage sales cheap too. There is only three parts to it, the base, the bowl and the blade, easy peasy clean-up. Hope this helps

try a handheld blender (not a mixer). It is great for smaller quantities and will save you a ton of clean-up. Also pretty cheap (about $20).

Any food processor will do. If you plan on making little batches, you can buy a little food processor (some only hold 1 or 2 cups o food). I wanted to make big batches, as well as use it for family meals, so I have a large one. I also use it for making hummus and salsa, or other recipes that require a *lots* of chopping.

The softness of the food depends more on how soft you cook it, than on how finely the processor chops.
