BabyMoov Food Processor Review

Thank you BabyMoov for the 5 in 1 Baby Food Processor below to help with this review

Cariboo distributes the BabyMoov Food Processor, and was launched 6 years ago when Geneuvieve,  a Canadian mom was expecting her first child. 


I was very excited to have the opportunity to review the BabyMoov Bebedelice 5 in 1 Baby Food Processor. With baby #4 due in December and three other children 6yrs and under, I knew that this processor could come in very handy for us now, as well as next Summer when baby Mya will be exploring the world of food! 



Once I opened the box, I was a bit overwhelmed with all the different pieces and trying to identify everything as I was reading the directions, but I just looked on the side of the box to know what was what so I ensured to use the correct pieces to do the different tasks. 

Steaming Baby Jars & Bottles


While Macyn no longer eats baby food, I wanted to try out this function because I've never heated jars. They've always been room temperature, or cold because they'd be in the refrigerator, so the thought of warming it up before feeding to baby sounded like a great idea. 

The directions are easy to follow and it didn't take long which is a great thing when you have a hungry child wanting to fill their tummies. You simply add the correct amount of water as written out by the chart, and then put the jar inside, turn to the correct setting, and push start! You can start to see when its working because the lid gets foggy and then when you're done the jar is warm and there's condensation on it. 

As we tested out the baby food, I didn't think there was much difference. It felt "room temperature" to me and my adult pallet, but after opening a room temperature jar of baby food, I could tell just how much it did work. Comparing the two, the 2nd jar seemed extremely cold in my mouth, and not as appealing as the warmed jar. This is a great feature that will come in so very handy when you have half jars in the refrigerator that need to be used at a later date. 

While I don't typically have baby bottles due to preferred breastfeeding, I love that you can steralize bottles if need be. When Macyn was about 8 months old, we fought Yeast a couple times and this was also around the time she wanted independence and baby food as well as preferring a bottles vs mom. Since bottles need to be sterelized or thrown out, I relied on my dishwasher to kill the Yeast and hope that it did the trick. Having a product such as this to truly sterelize the nipple would have given more confidence in knowing the bacteria was gone. The bottles were eventually thrown out after it came back because I couldn't trust they were cleaned properly, which meant money was spent that could've been avoided with a feature such as a sterilizer. 

STEAMING FOOD
Before, During, and After Steam

Since I have older children, I really wanted to make smoothies! I figured it would be a fun way for our kids to enjoy fruit, and also an easier way for Macyn to eat fruit since she needs her's cut up in to small pieces which ultimately end up on the floor from slipping and sliding out of her fingers or off the utensil. 

This section was a bit of trial and error for me. As you read the directions, it tells you that you should steam the food before mixing it, but doesn't tell you how much water to use to steam correctly. Instead it says to use the recipe guide book to ensure correct measuring, but the book is only a dozen recipes for different ages and doesn't really give you the freedom to make whatever you want. Since this was the case, I used the 300ml of water measured by the mixing bowl, one of two ways to measure water for this machine. 


After about 20 minutes of steaming and then noticing some water was coming out, I turned the processor off and took a peak at the progress. Since I used 300ml of water, I think that was just barely too much and that was the reason for over flow and leaks on the counter. The first time I measured with the little one and nothing happened, so it's all triall and error to ensure you're doing it correctly. 


After you steam the food, you want to let it sit so it can cool. Five minutes later you pick everything up and move it to the mixing bowl. The juice that's caught by the basket (in the left photo) is like a natural liquid for the blending and also helps with the flavoring. At first I thought the fruit looked off because it was shriveled and the strawberries lost a lot of color, but I continued on as directions stated and was anxious to see the end result. 


I was taken back by the loudness of the machine, but it mixed quickly and efficiently. With mixing times of 10 seconds per push of the button, I did it three times to ensure it was all mixed thoroughly. The 10 second max rule is to ensure the motor doesn't over heat, and I think its also a great time to check the progress and not over due the over all out come if you're wanting thick/thin baby food. 


After making the strawberry/banana "smoothies" I put it in the refrigerator to cool off until dinner. Instead of putting it in pouches for the girl's to drink however, I used it as a side dish for Macyn and she loved it! She couldn't get enough and was scooping as much of a spoonful as she could get. I haven't seen her eat like that in a long time and she had several little servings, eating almost the whole batch that was made. It even smelled exactly like the strawberry/banana baby food we had, which blew me away. You'd never know the difference besides our's having little strawberry seeds and slight variation. 

Overall, I do like this BabyMoov 5 in 1 Baby Food Processor. You can use it from birth until several years of age as shown with my older girls which are 4 and 6yrs old. Macyn will be 2yrs old in February, but she's still a great age to make her eating habits easier. 


More about the Bebedelice:
  • heats and reheats bottles and small jars,
  • sterilizes bottles,
  • cooks fresh food without losing its vitamin content, even fish, poultry and meat!
  • blends,
  • defrosts and preserves.
  • Easy to use with its 2 control buttons. 
  • Stops automatically and alerts you via its 2 alarms (visual and sound).
  • Includes graduated measuring cup and a set of tongs.

While this processor retails for $120, you can currently find it on Amazon selling for the great price of $80. That's a 33% savings!!!

You can purchase the BabyMoov 5 in 1 Baby Food Processor in Blue/Purple like I reviewed, or Red/Grey combination. This processor only weighs 5lbs, so its light weight and easy to move around if need be.

This looks like something I will totally be able to use. I don't have any kids yet but I'm trying to get things together before we have any to make it a little easier.

Stephanie Slavy said...

This looks so cool. You can do everything with one device.

bellsam said...

This reminds me of a unit I saw at Toys R Us

Debbie Huntzinger said...

What a neat product. I would love to have one for my baby!

Rebecca Xavier said...

Wow. This is a very thorough review. To me this, this product would be very helpful. I do bottle feed, make my own baby food, and use jarred food.

diamondgirl said...

What a great product

Erica Williams said...

I've been looking at the baby bullet, and had never heard of this product.. may have to change my mind, it looks awesome!!

Elayna said...

Wow I was thinking about gettint the baby bullet but this does much more! I love that it heats and reheats bottles and small jars....... and even sanitizes. WOW!

Ali Barton said...

I love making homemade food and I look forward to doing it when my little one comes in March. This seems like an awesome product. Thanks!

cheryl lister said...

Sounds like this product does a lot of things. Nice that it sterilizes bottles. too bad that it's so noisy - I hate using my noisy blender!

tlpbaby said...

I would love this for my son! He is only 1 month old, but would love it when he gets older.

KatieSPatti said...

I love that this product has so many different features (from warming up baby food to steaming/blending). With my first son I made his baby food but found the process tedious, because I was cooking the food in my oven and then transferring everything over to my food processor. It would be great to have an all-in-one type machine to do the work for me.

Andrea Mc said...

What a great multitasker to keep around.

Katie said...

This product looks awesome! My daughter is about to start on solid foods - I would love to have one.

Tycica Johnson said...

This is thoughtful and handy-wish it was out years ago!

CarrieAnn13 said...

I wish I had this when I was making baby food for my boys. It make sit so simple! I would love to get one for each of my sister in laws as they now have - or are expecting - little ones of their own.

Leslie Harris said...

This sounds perfect for our family

Lindsey's Mom said...

I particularly like that this product was designed by a mother. I am returning to work this week and pumping for DD to have milk and have just begun introducing solids. We mash with a fork currently. This review makes me inclined to think we could be doing solids so much better. Thank you!

Cynthia Dingwell said...

This is a fabulous product. I would like to win this and give it to my daughter who is expecting her first child April 23rd, 2014.
What a useful product. Super! Thanks!

Rachel Cobb said...

This is amazing! This is just what I have been looking for!

JayandAmy Burnham said...

I was so excited to see this. Fisher Price used to make one and I lent it out and never got it back. I have since searched and searched for something similar and this is the closest!!

Bekalee314 said...

i love that it can sterilize bottles as well as well as cooking and blending foods! this would be great for my 7 month old daughter and me.

Sabrienna Litman said...

This would be a great tool for any new mom I love it.

Great review! The BabyMoov looks like an amazing tool to have around the kitchen for all my kids (ages 5, 3, 16 months and one on the way). Love it!

K Russell said...

This look amazing!!

Diana Chastain said...

I have a Nuk FreshFoods Baby Food Maker. I love that it steams and chops the food, but it doesn't heat up jars!

ATLmama said...

I love all of the different functions! I would use every one, but am most interested in the sterilizing and mixing to make smoothies.

Puddles and Poop said...

This looks awesome. My favorite feature is that it steams fruits and vegetables. It does everything for you! I really want to make our baby food this time around with baby #3. This may be in our future!

Carol L. said...

What a great item. Wish they had something like this when my 7 were little. I love the steaming of the fruits and veggies. My daughter would love this with her two little boys ages 6 months and 4. Thanks for the review, very thorough.

Rebecca Parsons said...

This is just fantastic. I am one of those people who rush to put something together and get frustrated if I can figure out where the pieces go. Thank goodness for my husband who would knock out the piecing in a flash.

Good Morning! Thank you for the info. This is a lot nicer then when 'back in the old days' lol, i just had to mash bananas with a fork! Love the sterile part too! Thanks. Vicki.

Viena Liti said...

Great Review!! very thorough and understandable. with 3 kids under 3, this would be a time saver in about everything! for cooking and making bottles!! i love the multi functions. sounds like a great product. thanks for the review.

Devon F said...

This would make pureeing baby #2's food so much easier!!

Terri R said...

Wish I'd had one of these a few years ago. It does everything!

Madhattergirlie said...

This makes me look forward to when my baby starts on baby food...almost lol what a great product!

Susan Harris said...

Thanks for reviewing! It looks like a great product.

Andrianna Thompson said...

The features on this are far superior to its competitors! I can't believe it cooks, blends, reheats, etc.

Karina Montoya said...

My little girl is 4 months old now and I haven't started feeding her baby food yet. This product definitely caught my attention. I would love a product that can do all these things, that way I know exactly what she's taking in and if I don't have the time to prepare her food myself, I can heat up a jar of baby food. A big thumbs up here!

shawna cunningham said...

wow! my son is 6 months and still exclusively breastfeeding but I want to make all his baby food and this would be wonderful!!!! I would be SO happy to win this! thanks for the chance (:

Bridgette Ontiveros said...

Wow! I would so love this for my 8-month-old. It is so multifunctional. But what I do love best is the fact that it sterilizes the bottles, too. That is a huge plus on my list.

Carolyn said...

Love that it sterilizes bottles.

Beanybopp said...

Nice "all in one" baby product. We didnt have a bottle warmer at first since my mom said that we didnt need know. BOY was it soo much better after we got one. We could not sterilize the bottles in the warmer though (not big enough and did not have a lid) but we could pacifiers and nipples if needed. To be able to steam and mash in the same machine is quite nice also. :)

desiree reilly said...

this is even good to use for the dog
food and i now somewho
to use baby is new

Emi Pearce said...

This would be great to give to my friend who just had a baby. If you pump and freeze then you will need something for the sitter or your mom to warm the milk but the most useful thing that I had for my kids when they were small was a blender to make things like strawberry banana smoothies like yours. I essentially made their baby food like this and it was super easy once you got the hang of it.

charychild said...

I love how much of a multi-tasker this machine is!

happyappymom said...

I would love to be able to control the quality of my son's babyfood with this.

Ashley Noall said...

I love this item. I would love this for my 5 month old baby girl who will be eating baby food soon.

Vanessa Wille said...

I love that this product appears so versatile! Heating, sterilizing...wonderful! A tool to take up less counter space.

Christina Strapp said...

This is a really neat product. I love the different functions it does.

NenaS said...

This is such a great product! I love that it does so many different things!

kathy pease said...

This looks awesome! I wish I had had one when my kids were little it would have saved so much money than having to buy jarred baby food

Brittany said...

This would come in so hand for my special needs 2 yr old who is just now starting to eat baby food. With this I would be able to make his food!

Matt and Erin said...

I love that you can heat up baby food in it, too! It does everything!

Stefanie K. said...

I love that it does everything and you can heat and make your own babyfood!!

brich2222 said...

Very nice tool to simplify making baby food and you know what your kid is getting....

Bonnie Avila said...

I would love this for my daughter, she has a new baby boy along with an almost 14 yr old daughter in addition to raising 2 of her sisters(who passed away) children, one of who graduate in June and then took in a 16 yr old cause this Gramma just couldn't any more, she works full time, but wants to provide the best, natural food for her baby and I think would be just wonderful for her.

kitkat210 said...

I plan to make all my baby's food and have been looking into a few options for a food processor but this definitely looks like a great option!

Katy Emanuel said...

Handy how it can do so many things. I think it would be handy for whipping up my own baby food all in one container rather than a pot and steamer to steam then the ricer to puree it and having all of those dishes to clean!

lilyk said...

This processor looks very nice. Thanks for the interesting and informative review!
