The low price tag make the Nuby baby food masher worth taking a chance on. Check out the full Nuby baby food masher review below.
I love making my own baby food because I love knowing exactly what goes into my babies food. I know though that no matter what I feed them now, they’ll end up binge eating flaming hot Cheetos while watching Netflix. But hey, if I can give them a good baseline I’m going to.

With Bugs I had a Baby Brezza food maker, and I wanted so badly to love it. But truthfully, if you’re going to be making large batches of baby food it just doesn’t cut it.
The container is just too small to do large cooking. So this time around I decided to use a steamer instead. It’s larger and I can fit a lot more food at one time.
While the purée feature on the Baby Brezza worked great, I thought it was too difficult to clean in between foods. When I make baby food, I tend to make a bunch of different food at one time. It just works better for my schedule.
So the plan was to buy a food processor. But I didn’t think we’d use it after I was done making baby food.
Babies really don’t need puréed food for all that long. So it seemed ridiculous to buy a $150+ machine to use for a few months.
After looking around online I found the Nuby Food Masher. The price made it worth it to just take a chance and see if I could use it instead of a food processor.
Nuby Baby Food Masher Review
Obviously, it’s a little small, it’s made to only mash single serving sizes. But I love that it is easy to use and easy to clean.
I start by steaming my food til it’s very soft. Today I’m demonstrating with apples, butternut squash, and peas.
Then, I load up some in the Nuby Food Masher, and use the included masher to mash the food. I love that the bowl has a texture to it as well to help with mashing.
In just a few mashes, you get a lumpy texture, perfect for older babies. You can keep mashing to get more of a purée for younger babies.
This Nuby baby food masher review wouldn’t be complete without at least mentioning that you can get the same results just using a fork. I think it’s easier to get the smoother purée with the Nuby masher for younger babies though.
Overall, I feel this was a great buy. It’s easy to use, easy to clean, and does what it’s supposed to. Mine also came with a steaming basket that I haven’t used yet.
I’d love to hear if you try this product or if you find something better for your baby food making needs!
