I really miss the old Happy Baby Food Grinder that used a metal blade!! The plastic blade is difficult to slip into the groove but it does grind once it is in place. I had to use the tines of a fork to push the blade into place and then to take it out once I was finished using it. It was such a hassle to use, I don't even want to donate it and curse someone else with this frustration. I found it easier to just use a fork to mash the food when I was out and my small food processor when I was home. I would have given this 0 stars, but that was not an option. :(user review

This mill is super easy to use and easy to clean. It's not fancy but it gets the job done. I have been able to easily feed my little guy the food we are eating without having to pull out the blender or food processor. It is easy to clean, just throw it in the dishwasher! It is also small enough to fit in your diaper bag!user review

I used one of these with my six kids and am looking forward to using it with my expected grandchild! I paid $10 for mine, 27 years ago, and it was the best $10 I ever spent! I have literally used it hundreds of times and it is still in perfect working order.

This is a tool, and tools are only good for their intended use, and when used correctly. It is important to understand that this kind of baby food mill is not really designed for making batches of baby food, in advance. Some moms have done so but I think that, if you want to freeze baby food, you should probably check out an electric baby food grinder or just use your blender or immersion blender.

This is primarily meant for making single servings of table foods for baby, as you are feeding the rest of your family. Although many foods don't need to have anything added to them, some thick things are helped by adding a little water and some runny things are helped by adding a tiny bit of instant baby cereal to thicken them a bit. You can do some hard things, like raw apples, if you dice them first.

It is also good to know that this is not designed to puree foods and will only do is if they are extremely soft to begin with. Most food comes out more like the junior baby foods, with some texture.

This is a great product when used as intended!user review

My mom bought this for me as a gift. It grinds food to a slightly chunky texture - not good for first foods, but better for slightly older babies. Very easy to use, but a bit putzy to clean.user review

I really liked using this food mill when my baby was 6-8 months old. It allowed me to feed him more table foods. I cooked potatoes, sweet potatoes, and carrots and ran them through the food mill and then froze them in baby food containers or ice cube trays. That way my baby had perfect portions of food he could eat without having to spend money on jar baby food. Also, I was more comfortable feeding him food I made because I knew exactly what was in it (no preservatives). You can also grind meat. This food mill is SUPER easy to use, portable, and can go right in the dishwasher.user review

This was easy to use and clean. I was able to grind up veggies, fruit, and beans. Later I used it to grind up our meals to make his portion easier to eat.user review

Easy to use, easy to clean. Not for all foods. Some foods that are stringier, like peaches, should not be put through this mill. However, softer foods like avocado and sweet potato do just fine. My baby was mainly a self-feeder, so I didn't use it much. It could be quite useful for others, though.user review
