So we only bought this for our third child. Before this we actually used a multi-tiered steamer and conventional blender to produce the food in bulk and prepare for the week. But this was a game changer - just put the food in the canister, steam it, then flip it round, blend and there you go!!! What I love most is they have an app for this too! Look up the different foods to find out how long to steam and they even have a list of recipes you can try according to the different age groups! And it’s a reasonably priced item which is very sturdy and well- made! Definitely worth the buy!
