Pros: Quality purees, one bowl for cook and steam
Cons: Plastic components, hard to see and clean steam tank
Bottom line: Easy to use all-in-one with smooth purees and quick preparation for busy parents
The Cuisinart BFM-1000 is the best all-in-one option we tested. This easy to use, easy to clean product offers great puree quality with regular smooth consistency for most food types. The only reservations for this unit are the health and safety metric where it earned the lowest score for the group. This score is a direct result of plastic components and an impossible to clean steam tank that users remarked is so hard to clean it always seems a bit "gross" and only gets worse over time. If your goal is a set and forget food maker that "does it all" for you then we recommend the Cuisinart, but if you share our concerns about plastic or hard to clean tanks we think you can save over $100 by choosing the Sage Spoonfuls Puree and Blend and cooking your food on the stove top.
