This Phillips Avent Steamer Blender is a great piece of kit for you and your family. It is very easy to use and will save you a lot of time cleaning up. It just takes less than 5 minutes of prep work and then 5-20 minutes to steam & blend a fresh meal for your baby. Don’t let the price put you off. If you are considering buying a steamer and blender then this is the blender for you. It is ideal for when your baby is just starting to eat solids.
The Phillips Avent Steamer Blender is about the size of a normal blender/food processor. The fact that it only has two settings makes it super easy to use. The two settings are steam or blend. If you read the simple instructions, you will learn how to use the steamer in a matter of minutes.
BPA is a chemical that is used to harden plastic. It is proven to be harmful to adult but even more harmful to babies. You should always try and buy products that are BPA free. You will be glad to know that the Phillips Avent Steamer & Blender is BPA free and good for your baby.
The steamer comes with a recipe booklet but you can use any recipe that you want. Weaning your baby away from breastfeeding onto to solids can seem like a daunting task for parents. Phillps have teamed up with a paediatric dietician, Judy Moore Phillips and doctor Gillian Harris to create a recipe booklet for your baby. It will help you to understand more baby weaning and how to make blend healthy meals for your baby.
There are also many great children’s cookbooks that have recipes that can be adjusted to fit in the Phillips Avent Steamer and Blender.
Yes, you can clean it in the dishwasher. All parts of the machine except for the motor part are dishwasher friendly. This makes cleaning up even easier. Expert Tip: If you are washing the Phillips Avent Steamer and Bender by hand then be careful. The blade on is very sharp. I learned that the hard way and sliced open my finger while cleaning it.
All the plastic parts are made from BPA-free materials. The metal parts are made of stainless steel and all of the other parts can be seen in the manual.

If you want to make quick, easy, healthy meals then this is the product for you. It saves a lot of time with preparing and cleaning up after the meals. There are a few minor issues that I will tell you about. The lifespan of this product is short as your baby will not need pureed food forever. You can, however, use it for adult food. I recently made a delicious pumpkin puree with it. We have twins so time is not something short. The Phillips Avent is great for cooking 2-4 servings but it is too small to cook in batches.
