Review- Sage Spoonfuls Baby Puree Blender

I received this product from Sage Spoonfuls as a member of their product testing panel.

I was counting down to the day my baby hit 6 months old. Why? Well, because she could start solids. And as a breastfeeding mother, that sounded like paradise. Like, "Oh baby, you're hungry? Here, have a carrot." 

But, boy was I romanticizing my baby eating solids. Making baby food is way more work than I ever thought. For me, it makes breastfeeding feel so easy. I guess the grass always seems greener on the other side.

But, with my Sage Spoonfuls Baby Puree Blender, the grass is just right. My baby food making world is a beautiful sage green. This appliance makes my mom world that much easier. Thank the baby food gods.

I give this baby puree blender a solid 4.5 stars out of 5 stars.

Let's start with the cons.

There are two things I dislike about the product.

Only 15 Second Pulses
This is probably the most important thing to note. While using this product, do not exceed 15 second pulses. 

I'm the kind of person who never reads any manuals or warning labels. So, when I was blending for probably a good minute and saw smoke coming from my motor, I freaked out. Well, I guess I should read labels in the future. 

No worries though, the machine works perfectly fine. Luckily for me, the only difference in performance is that the motor is left with a subtle smoky scent.

But honestly, this one is all on me. If you look at my photos, the labels read loud and clear. I am the one who decided to totally ignore the clear instructions. 

Please note that I did not deduct my rating for this mishap. I just thought it would be important to state my oversight in the review.

However, I did deduct half a star for the following reason.

I Wish it Came with a Suction Puree Cup.

I love the puree immersion option. It makes pureeing and cleaning up a breeze. 

However, I would want it to come with a tall cup that fits the puree blade. Then, I would want the cup to have a suction on the base. That way, the cup stays in place when I puree.

Right now, I don't have a cup large and wide enough for this. I use a large bowl to puree and because the bowl is too shallow the puree will splash.

Now, lets talk about all the wonderful things I love about this appliance.

The following description is taken straight off Sage Spoonfuls' website.

  • The Sage Spoonfuls immersion blender and food processor are lightweight and perfect for making baby food at home or on-the-go.
  • They feature stainless steel mixing blades and a powerful, but quiet 120V/250W motor that can blend fruit, vegetables, beans, meat and poultry with ease.
  • Included is one immersion blender with food processor attachment.
  • They are super convenient and can make one to dozens of servings at a time!

How much does it cost?

It only costs $39.99 (not including the state tax) on Sage Spoonfuls' official website. However, on Amazon, I see the same product listed at $30.00 (not including the state tax). I also see this on the Walmart site for $29.35 (not including the state tax).

What does it come with?

The Motor 

This is the motor. It detaches and attaches to the puree and food processor attachment. 

I love how compact the motor is. What I love most is how easy it is to interchange, detach and, attach between the food processor and the puree blender. All you have to do is align and twist.

The Food Processor Attachment

The food processor portion comes with three parts. It comes with a base, a blade insert and a lid.

The Base 

The base of the food processor is lightweight and durable. It's large enough to hold a week's worth of food for your baby. At the same time, it's small enough not to be cumbersome and bulky.

The Blade

The blade easily glides into the base for secure use. It's sharp enough to do the job but, not too sharp where I'm intimidated by it.

The Lid

This is how everything looks when the motor is attached to the food processor.

The Puree Attachment

The puree attachment twists onto the motor without any resistance.

How well does the food processor work?

I like the food processor portion of the appliance more than the puree immersion portion. 

I cook a lot in my everyday life. Thus, I use this processor everyday. I use it not only for my baby's food but, for my own food. It blends frozen fruits with ease and it even blends hard nuts without any issues.

After use, the cleanup is super quick. I just immerse everything in some warm tap water for about 30 minutes. Then, I just hand wash it with a sponge and some dish soap.

How well does the puree immersion blender work? 

If I had a suctioned base cup to fit the puree blade, I think I would use the puree option a lot more.

When I do use it, my purees come out smooth and velvety soft.

What have you made with it?

I have made a ton of stuff ranging from smoothie bowls to peanut butter.

But, here is a list of recipes that I was able to blog about.
