Conair Cuisinart BFM-1000 Baby Food Maker

Easy to Use

Cuisinart has done it again with this automatic baby food maker! Just like the company’s food processors and other appliances, this one offers easy, intuitive setup and works with the press of a button. It steams and purees in the same container, saving you prep and cleanup time, and if you like to make baby’s food ahead of time and keep some in the refrigerator for future meals, the four-cup container makes it simple.

Built-In Bottle Warmer

Tired of microwaving cups of water to warm your baby’s bottle? Tired of looking at the bottle warmer on your countertop? If so, you’ll appreciate the Cuisinart BFM-1000 for its integrated bottle warmer, which is conveniently nestled behind the baby food blending bowl. It would be nice if this bottle warmer handled more than one bottle (parents of twins would appreciate it!) however the single bottle capacity is still a great extra.


Saves Money on Baby Food

If you’ve been buying baby food at the supermarket, then you know how quickly the cost adds up. With this baby food maker and others, you can save quite a lot of money on baby food. Babies really do not eat that much, and even if you buy the best fresh ingredients available, you’ll still save on a cost per serving basis.


Puts You in Control of Baby’s Intake

Most baby food manufacturers are meticulous about what goes into the meals they make, however it’s a great feeling to know that you are in complete control of what your baby is eating at each and every meal. You also get the opportunity to expand your child’s developing palette so that he or she will learn to like a wide variety of foods!


Sharp Blade for Precise Chopping

Be careful when assembling and disassembling the Cuisinart baby food maker, because the blade inside is very, very sharp! This isn’t a mistake or a fault, however, it’s exactly what is needed to ensure that the baby food you make turns out with the right consistency. After steaming the food, you pulse it to break it down, and then you press the knob for about 30 seconds to complete the pureeing process.


Steams Foods for the Rest of the Family

It might sound weird to steam your peas in a baby food maker and then serve them alongside your entrée, but that’s something that you can do with this machine, if you like. It saves time on meal prep, and you can remove all but the baby’s portion of veggies before chopping and pureeing. We used it to make applesauce that the whole family enjoyed!


Easy to Clean

The Cuisinart baby food maker is very easy to clean, mostly because the working parts are dishwasher safe! You do need to empty and clean the water chamber for the steamer frequently, because like any damp, dark place, mildew and mold can start to accumulate inside if you don’t follow the manufacturer’s instructions regarding cleaning. This takes just a few minutes, and the peace of mind that you feel knowing that you’re providing your infant with safe homemade baby food makes the effort worthwhile.


“Are the parts BPA free?”

Yes. According to the manufacturer, all parts that come into contact with food are BPA free.

“Is this unit only for vegetables, or can you cook meat in it?”

You can steam meat with the baby food maker, and I’ve read some reviews in which users have described steaming fish.

“Is the baby food maker loud?”

When the food is steaming, there is very little sound. When you’re chopping / pureeing food, there is some noise, but it seems to be a little quieter than our Cuisinart food processor.

“Do you have to pre-cut vegetables before putting them into the baby food maker?”

Yes. You should cut them into 1-inch sections (or smaller) so that they will steam properly.

“Can you use the warmer for breast milk, or is it only for formula?”

Yes, you can warm bottles of breast milk. It takes under a minute to warm 3 ounces to the proper temperature.

“How big is this machine?”

The Cuisinart BFM-1000 baby food maker is about the size of a small coffee pot. It is 7.8” x 12.2” x 10”.


The Conair Cuisinart BFM-1000 Baby Food Maker is an outstanding time-saver, plus it saves space in your kitchen, thanks to a built-in bottle warmer. It puts you in charge of your little one’s diet, letting you prepare meals with real ingredients like the ones you serve the rest of your family. Additionally, it pays for itself quickly by saving you money on pre-made baby foods. This automatic baby food maker heats and purees foods quickly, and amazingly, it’s good for things other than baby foods; you can use it to make mashed potatoes, applesauce, and other goodies that the whole family will enjoy. You can find the Conair Cuisinart BFM-1000 Baby Food Maker for sale at online retailers including Amazon.

It’s interesting – and a lot of fun – to test things like bread machines, juicers, and of course coffee makers, learn what different models have to offer, and see how they compare with one another before passing my findings about the best ones on to you.
