Review By Summer:
I have so many friends who love their Magic Bullet … and I mean LOVE. I haven’t ever owned one, but I have given some as gifts for weddings; common request. I knew a while back the Magic Bullet company made a Baby Bullet. The Baby Bullet is not only the “bullet” mixer, but comes with blender pitcher, silicon freezing tray, a refrigeration tray with six separate food containers featuring date on lids, plus rubber spatula, small and large food tips/tricks/recipe books. Pretty neat-o!
I’m so jealous of not having the Baby Bullet with my first child, but having said that, I’m either the best or worst person at Mom Start to review the Baby Bullet because I own a Vitamix. I’ve always wanted a bullet, but having now compared the two products I love my Vitamix though the Baby Bullet is nice and, the biggest part, a very fraction of the cost of a Vitamix. A Baby Bullet Complete Care System should cost you $59 whereas the Vitamix will set you back some Benjamins. Let me repeat though I’m in love with my Vitamix, adding a Baby Bullet to your registry is a good idea.
Besides the low price, it’s nice to have all the “extra” of the Baby Bullet over other blenders, elite or not. For making your own baby food with the Baby Bullet offers a complete package – two mixer heads (bullet and blender), freezer and refrigerator trays, and the food books. Though you can purchase the refrigerator Baby Bullet brand storage cups separately and Magic Bullet also offers a Baby Bullet steamer.
One down fall is cleaning the Baby Bullet which is a hand wash item. As a first time mom I had more time to do such things, but it progressively becomes harder as your child ages and requires more attentions, especially an only/first child. Having two children, for me, was a bit harder as I had to cater to a baby and also my demanding first child. But you can read the reviews on Amazon for yourself.
I also believe the Baby Bullet is better than “any old blender”. I’ve had blenders; the the Vitamix is the best I’ve EVER had, but the Baby Bullet does well for a blender and I believe out preforms cheap blenders I’ve owned in the past. Though a warnings from the reviews would be that the blend seems to only last about a year’s time (which should take you through one child’s solid food eating 6m-18m).
My advice would be to skip buying a new blender each year to couple of years or so (depending on wear and tear) and just get a Vitamix! The Baby Bullet is designed to make baby food in small portions, so add the Baby Bullet to your registry. Though, if you purchase the Baby Bullet for yourself from The Baby Bullet website you will get the Baby Bullet package plus the steamer AND a Magic Bullet System for about $100.
