Moms Are Talking About… Blenders
Do you have a favorite blender that you can recommend to your fans to make baby food preparation a snap?
I am still using the Oster blender that I purchased 32 years ago. I think it’s going to last forever!
Of course, if you are rich, the top of the line blender is the Vitamix, and that’s the one I would recommend if money were no object. Otherwise, the regular brand names are fine for the most part for pureeing veggies and fruits and making smoothies. For Super Porridge or grinding flax seeds and other seeds and nuts, I recommend the Tribest blender. It’s a workhorse, and again, you can expect it to work for a long, long time. I like that you can put all parts that touch the food in the dishwasher. For grinding flax seeds, nuts, and grains, you can also use a coffee grinder, but you must clean it out very well after each use because the oils in the seeds and nuts get rancid quickly; this tends to be difficult with some coffee grinders. You can also use the Tribest to make smoothies and it comes with different parts, depending on the model you buy. I’ve heard that the Magic Bullet can be run continuously for only 30 seconds. In my opinion, it’s no Tribest. Before I buy a small kitchen appliance, I always read reviews at Amazon.com and on QVC.com and HSN.com. They are from real people with experience on the products. What has been your experience with blenders? Do you have any “blender tips” to share?
