I would not buy this machine again at this price point. The blending is definitely not the best feature on this item. I was so determined that I wanted this baby food maker that I let it cloud my judgement on whether to spend this much money. I think this is worth a maximum of $150.00 retail especially since absolutely nothing is included (freezer tray, quality cookbook), but Albeebaby always has coupons, so you can get pretty close to that price. Compared to a Vitamix or any other very high powered blender this performs at the opposite end of the spectrum, and when you are making babies first foods you want it to be a very fine puree. I gave this four stars, because it is pretty cool, and looks nice. Although, it is a very large kitchen appliance that takes up a lot of counter real estate, so make sure you have a place in your cabinets to store it. My overall impression was 'meh'. Whatevs.
- Poor blending
- Freezer tray not included
- Quality cookbook not included
