Your companion in the kitchen: food processors at The Memo

As your baby transitions to solids, a food processor is worth its weight in gold. Easily puree fruits, vegetables, and even cooked meats into healthy meals - you have direct control over the texture, ingredients and flavours of the food you’re making.

A food processor will be a huge time saver, too, saving you the effort of manually chopping most fruits and vegetables you need to pull together a healthy meal. Some of the models in our collection at The Memo also have a steaming function, so you don’t need to worry about those harder fruits and vegetables. Pureed food is also easy to make in bulk and freeze in small bite-size parcels for later. You’ll always have a few nutritious, homemade options on hand for when you’re short on time.

Finding high-quality food processors

Choosing the right food processor can be overwhelming with the range of options available. Here are a few key features for you to consider.


Sometimes, you’ll be using your food processor to whip up a nutritious meal on the fly; sometimes, you’ll have time to prepare in bulk. Whatever it is, you want to make sure the food processor you choose has the capacity to accommodate without taking up too much kitchen bench space.

Attachments and Features

A good food processor will have a range of attachments. If you want to get the most time-saving out of your food processor, purchase a model that has attachments that can chop, slice, and shred. Some of the food processors in our collection take you one step further and can steam cook, blend, reheat and defrost food all in one machine - an incredible time saver.

Speed settings

Make sure your chosen food processor has a range of speed settings and a pulse function - this way, you have better control over the texture of the food you’re making, and you can easily adjust based on what kinds of food your baby is eating.

Easy to clean

Take a moment to check that the attachments and key components of the food processor can be placed in a dishwasher for easy cleaning.

Safety features

Keep your kitchen safe for babies and toddlers, and make sure your food processor has a safety lock or other features that mean it can’t be turned on unless properly assembled.
