An appliance to help make baby food and if you get a regular bullet, or something similar, you can make smoothies, sauces, grate cheese, and a number of other things as well!
Average Cost: Anywhere from $30 to over $130
On the One Hand:
The bullet, or something similar, is great at pureeing, blending, chopping, mixing, and other food prep. Also, the jars are microwave safe, so no having to switch containers when heating things up! It's also smaller than a blender so takes up less counter space.
On the Other Hand:
For baby food, a hand mill works great and is a fraction of the cost. Also, a blender can do quite a few things that a bullet can and you can find a decent one for around $30 or less.
I've been considering getting a bullet for several months. I have a hand mill and while I don't mind using, if I'm going to make several kinds of food it kind of wears my arm out! Also, my blender is wearing out and doesn't puree things as smooth as I want. So, what's your vote?
