I’m a first-time mom and a newbie cook trying to make baby food in the kitchen. Guess what? Everything I knew about cooking (from TV) is wrong. In real life, cooking demands wayyyy more work than pictured in the movies.

Prior to having a baby, I would never have envisioned myself stepping into the kitchen. I always felt that cooking was too much work, and preferred eating out instead.

Healthy home-cooked meals

I have been blessed with a hand-me-down baby food processor, and it works great for me with the multiple functions – from steaming, reheating, blending, and mixing. Making baby food has really changed the cooking game for me, as I realised that cooking is not that difficult after all. Plus, homecooked food is actually healthier and tastier.

Now that my newborn baby is slowly transitioning to a toddler and will be able to eat more than just mushy puree, I am on a hunt for a food processor that is beginner-friendly and reduces food preparation time (perhaps inspire me with a different recipes as well).

Food processor vs baby food processor

What’s the difference between a food processor and a baby food processor? A food processor comes with multiple blades and attachments that you can interchange and switch out when performing different functions from kneading to whisking, while the baby food processor generally comes with only a default blade for blending and mixing.

Also, while food processors come equipped with various blending power and capacities, baby food processors typically come with a fixed 1-litre capacity and 100 W blending power – only sufficient for baby food preparation.

However, baby food processors commonly come with steam function as well – not found in a regular food processor.

Food processor vs blender

The look and functions of the food processor and blender are so similar that it is easy to mistake one for another.

A general rule of thumb: blenders are meant for liquid recipes, giving you silky smooth smoothies. Food processors, however, are able to handle solid foods like vegetables, meat, dry ingredients like nuts, and even sticky dough. Some of the food processors featured in my best food processor list also comes with additional blender attachments, too.
