Tommee Tippee Steamer Blender [Review]


I'm a huge fan of Tommee Tippee, I can honestly say they are my favourite baby brand - a brand that is trusted (in my opinion) and one that I used with both my girls. Both Emily and Isabelle were bottle-fed, and they both used the Tommee tippee bottles and steam steriliser, which I absolutely loved both times around. When they reached out and asked if I would like the opportunity to review the Steamer Blender, of course, I jumped at the chance. We have not long started weaning Isabelle (I know that the recommended age is 6 months, but we have weaned early under advice from doctors - more on this in another post).


As you may know, if you are a regular reader, Isabelle has a cows milk protein allergy, which worries me a little when it comes to weaning, until you actually look you don't realise how much stuff actually has milk in. It did initially feel like a little bit of a minefield, but it's not been as scary as I initially thought it would be. I love the idea of having the steamer blender and making her puree's myself, that way I know exactly what is in her meals, and that there are no hidden dairy products in there.

The blender comes with two freezer pots, for storing the food when blended and a small spatula. I love the little freezer pots as they already match the ones we have. I think that the design of the Steamer Blended is lovely, it fits well with the rest of the Tommee Tippee products. I don't like having lots of stuff on my worktops that take up lots of room - but I have to admit this isn't too large, and you don't really notice it is there.


It also comes with a handy guide on timings for steaming and blending, one of the features I was impressed with the most is the fact you can steam then blend all in one cycle meaning there is no need to transfer or change into any more containers - yes to less washing up!

First, you fill the water tank up with 450ml of cold water, then weigh out the amount of food you want to cook, and pop it into the container making sure that you attach the knife blade and lock it into place first. The timings are worked out per 100g, so you need to weigh the food to be able to calculate how long you'll need to steam it for.

The control panel is really simple to use, you press 'steam' and then use the '+' and '-' symbols to input the time you need. Then press the blend and input the time again. After you have done that simple press the main middle button to start. You can also steam or blend separately if you do not wish to do it in one big cycle. If you haven't put the lid on properly or locked the water tank, the machine will beep to let you know and it will not switch on.


With Halloween fast approaching, Tommee Tippee have some fab recipe card ideas. I thought that I would share a couple with you in case you need any inspiration! Emily and I definitely plan on recreating the silly apple bites


Overall, I am really impressed with the steamer blender. I can see it being a fab tool in our weaning journey. I love the fact that you do not need to move items from one container to another, it puts my mind at ease knowing that there is no way that Isabelle will end up poorly, as I know there isn't any dairy in there, and there is no chance of cross-contamination. I found the steamer blended really simple to use, and I know that I am going to enjoy making lots of different things for Isabelle to try as she gets further along in her weaning journey.

  1. this sounds good - I was always a fan of Tommee Tippee when my two were younger too. Good point about the cross contamination too, so much better than using your own steamer or blender for her :)

  3. We used something similar from another brand when we were weaning and found it set helpful. This one looks good. Great that it comes with a guide x
