There’s always that one thing that is “the must have baby item” at the time of your baby shower. You know the one, you get about 12 of them and pretend to be excited for each and every one? Ya, that!
For me, that was the Baby Bullet Food Processor.
This baby food making system is a spinoff from the wildly popular Magic Bullet system, which I already had and loved, so I was in all honesty pretty excited to try it out!
Besides the fact that it’s stylized with cute little smiley faces on pretty much every piece, the most significant difference between the Baby Bullet and the Magic Bullet is the storage.
As a mom, especially with a newborn, you have exactly zero time to be continually making baby food. This makes proper storage containers a life saver, allowing you to make larger batches ahead of time, and store them for later use!
The small set of screw lid containers (6 included) were my favorite since they not only sealed tightly, and stood up both on the provided rack as well as on their own, but they have a date dial that allows you to mark when you made the food! This is a huge selling feature when you are sleep deprived and can barely even remember what you ate for breakfast!
An additional “short cup” also comes with the system which is great for carrying extra when you’re on the go, but doesn’t have the same “date dial”, which I would have loved!
The Baby Bullet blending container is quite large, and is great for making larger batches of homemade food, as well as accommodating larger foods like sweet potatoes, without having to spend the time chopping them into smaller pieces before hand!
With that said, I was not a big fan of the “easy pop silicone tray”…at first! Let me explain…
When I first began using the system, I thought freezing using the silicone tray would be a great option, but the lid just doesn’t cut it! Perhaps if they had included individual lids for each cup it would seal properly, but with one lid over the entire tray I ended up with freezer burn every time.
With that said, as my daughter got older, the easy pop tray was fantastic for toddler sized homemade popsicles! We simply blended up fruits and water/juice, put saran wrap over the top and poked sticks through the wrap into each cup. Once frozen, they were easy to pop out of the tray, and were the perfect toddler-sized summer treat (with the added bonus of being homemade!).
Overall, I was very pleased with the system. And since I got 3 at my baby shower, I was in baby food storage heaven!
My only suggestion for anyone looking to invest in the Baby Bullet, is to pick up the extra storage set for more of the fabulous date indicator storage cups, you’ll be glad you did!
