Tested by mum Verity Thornhill for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

I really liked this! It was easy to use and the instructions were straight to the point. After a couple of minutes the food was in the basket and it was then steaming away. It is a great size so doesn't take up too much room on the work surface and because it does all the different jobs, it also cuts down on cleaning time.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

Rather than having to steam the food and then puree/chop, this does it all for you.

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

The Babycook Solo is a brilliant gadget for baby weaning! I loved the design. It looks really cool in the kitchen and doesn't take up too much room on the worktop. It's simple and easy to use, once you've read the instructions carefully! It steams the food really quickly and it's quick and easy to blend to a smooth baby friendly consistency. Easy to clean and not too many fiddly bits to take apart. I liked the recipe book, it gave me lots of recipes to start with and its inspired me to try out my own recipes.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

It's quick and easy to make healthy home made baby food, it's was so quick to steam apple and carrots and it's lovely to able to give your baby fresh home cooked food. It doesn't make any mess and there's only a few bits to clean up afterwards. I like the colours and design. It looks very cool in the kitchen and doesn't take up too much space! Nice recipe book included with clear instructions.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

It's rather expensive so it would have to be on special offer for me to buy it. It would be really helpful if it came with some storage pots that could go in the freezer. The recipe book is great - it would be even better if there were more recipes to choose from.

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

I would recommend this to anyone starting their baby on puréed food. I loved how easy it is to use - producing healthy meals (or just simple purées). The longest time is taken preparing the food before you add it to the machine. Cutting things up into 1cm sized pieces takes time but as you can't add too much to the basket, it really is worth doing.  Before the first use, you should allow an hour to prepare the machine as you have to run 3 cooking cycles. It wasn't the 'quick-start' I was hoping for! The machine is really easy to clean so you can cook a few different things in no time at all.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

This machine saves time and mess when preparing food for baby. No more steaming/boiling then draining and transferring to the blender. This is all in one which means only one machine to wash. A must for any busy family!

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

I would make the instructions clearer for fixing the seal and the blade. On my first use, the juice ran out of the bottom. I realised that the seal needed to be pushed further on to the blade fixing.

2015 –  Feeding Product for Weaning Award!

Beaba's Babycook Solo 4-in-1 Babyfood Maker steams, blends, defrosts and re-heats. The product is simple to use, stylish, reduces washing up and is a suitable size – small enough to take on holiday rather than having to resort to packet food. It’s versatile, allowing users to cook-up a single serving or a batch, and the meals suggested in the included recipe book are really good. The Babycook cleverly uses cooking water to loosen the mix when blending, which is not only healthy but highly efficient. And it only takes 15 minutes to prepare a meal! This product was made for busy mums!

2014 – Shortlisted for 'Best Feeding Product for Weaning' Award!

Beaba’s Babycook Solo 4-in-1 Babyfood Maker takes the stress and mess out of preparing healthy meals for little ones. It cooks quickly and purées baby’s food to the correct consistency.  The blending function is both quiet and efficient, and the product has a large jug capacity, which accommodates mass cooking. The utensil to remove the steamer basket is a good idea but the water gauge is hard to find and not clearly referenced in the manual. Although slick and stylish, the Babycook does take up a lot of space in a small kitchen and it is expensive, especially for something that will only be used in the short term. Yet its ability to save time and effort (both precious commodities) could turn the product from a luxury into a necessity.
