Beaba Babycook

Heralded as a ‘godsend,’ the Beaba Babycook can do it all. This little French-import acts as a steamer, blender, warmer, and defroster. In less than fifteen minutes, the Beaba steam cooks fruits, vegetables and meats, then purees or blends them to the desired consistency – all while retaining the nutritional value and flavor. And should you need to thaw or reheat your babe’s dinner, the Beaba does that too. Before you swoon, there’s more. The BPA-free bowl and basket are dishwasher-safe, making clean-up a breeze. www.beabausa.com
