I tend to feed Spike shop bought baby food because I’m pretty lazy and can’t be bothered to spend hours every week making a huge mess of my kitchen by pureeing. Now that he is 7 months old and well and truly weaned I decided that we might try and let him eat what we eat. I was looking around for a small blender that would mush enough for one portion at a time without filling my whole dishwasher. (I strive for an easy life!)
When we were asked to review the Wean Machine we were thrilled. It looked like the perfect solution for quick easy meals.
When it arrived we were very impressed by the size of the Wean Machine. It is big enough to fit the perfect sized portion in and small enough to throw in a bag for feeding on the go. It comes with two different sized grills and a spoon that fits nicely inside the splash guard which means that it will stay clean and you won’t end up digging around at the bottom of a bag. You can also buy an accessory pack that contains two extra grills and a spoon.
We decided to start easy and mush a banana. I popped it into the Wean Machine and actually got quite excited as I saw it become the perfect consistency for Spike to eat! I always have problems mushing bananas down with a fork but the Wean Machine produced lump free banana without the need to add any milk. The thing that I absolutely loved about the Wean Machine is that there is no need to put the food into a bowl, it is a brilliant shape to spoon the food out directly saving time and washing up!
The Wean Machine is BPA, Phthalate and PVC Free. It can be easily sterilised and is “top-shelf dishwasher safe.” The instructions were easy to follow as it is pretty much self explanatory. I was very impressed with the “Squidgometer” list of suitable foods for the Wean Machine that can be found on the website.
The Wean Machine retails at £19.99 and the accessory pack retails for £4.99 which is well worth it for such a fantastic product. I was very impressed and it is going to save me time, money and washing up!
