"Love this little machine! I'm a mom and work full time so there is not much extra time for anything, this was easy to use and my daughter got all home made baby food. She is now 2 and I still use this at least once a week to steam vegetables for her to eat. You pour the amount of water need, you throw the vegetables or fruits in and you turn the nob and it's done. The machine does everything for you, you come back when the light turns off and you either have steamed fruits/vegetables or you can throw it back in the machine and puree. Clean up is pretty easy too because there aren't too many complicated pieces. I did read a lot of reviews prior to purchase and I was concern with some issues people were having, but sometimes you might get an item that's just not put together correctly, but I think that could happen with any product. What I love about this product is that it's easy to use, it's not complicated and it makes it easy for a mom or dad or grandma to make home made food for their babies."
