makes food preparation easier
I am totally in love with this product. With very little to no effort, bub's food is ready. It isn't too complicated to use and the buttons are very straightforward. Storing and cleaning is also not a problem. I also use this in cooking noodles, sauces and soup which is another plus.
Purchased in March 2019 for $199.99.
Finicky machine, needs a lot of patience to get working and requires too much maintenance
For a machine that is supposed to make it easier for mothers to make solid food, this steamer/blender is finicky to use and requires far too much maintenance to descale every 1-4 weeks. The instructions are not detailed enough so it requires a lot of trial and error to get the lids screwed tight and bits and pieces to line up on the machine. Otherwise, the machine refuses to work and you have to go back to tinkering again. I have only used this machine 4 times in the 3 weeks, I get the water symbol when I use it. You have to make sure to use boiled water, tip all the water out when done, clean all the pieces and then descale constantly. It's quite time intensive for a machine that is supposed to save time. I wouldn't recommend this and I suggest for those with a steamer and a hand blender, it will probably be quicker to get your purees that way.
Help me a lot
This product is awesome, now I can make a food for my baby so much easier, it's easy to clean and durable because I am using this every day, it's really fit for working mom who doesn't have much time to cook but still want to give a best food for her baby
Makes life easy
I was hesitant in buying this at first as it is a bit pricey, but realised it worth totally worth it.
This has made my life so much easier.
The steam function is so quick and you can steam two different foods at once, then take out the steam basket, tip the food into the blender. The digital settings are really easy.
I am glad I read the instructions before I used it as there is a little tray underneath the product which holds a little lid that you put in the blender before blending as to stop food from entering the steaming hole.
I also purchased the cherub baby sterile food pouches, they are reusable and so easy to use, you can freeze and reheat the food you make.
Oh and I haven’t even used the sterilising function or the bottle warmer but I am sure they work awesome.
I am in love with this machine!
had a nice experience
I won’t deny that the mixed reviews I found made me hesitant of buying this. I went to an expo to get this at 50$ less. It has been months since I bought this appliance and words are not enough to describe how awesome this is. It helped me in preparing and cooking purees, soups and other baby food. On top of that, I can sterilize lids, teats, spoons etc. all with no fuss. I think this is the appliance that I use more often in comparison to the toasters, coffee maker sitting on top of our kitchen counter.
A Fancy Product but worthless
I purchased this steamer with high hopes and I am utterly disappointed. The water leaks every time after steaming. The jars are a little too big for making the baby purees. I have used it hardly 5-6 times and stopped as it was getting more messy and time consuming to make purees using Natriblend. The traditional way of using a steamer, hand-mixer and fork is much more easy and quick to whip up instant purees in 15 minutes. The concept of steamer and mixer in one is good but it's design is very poor and inefficient.
Great product makes prepping my babies food really easy. Also easy to clean and compact so doesn’t take up a huge amount of space. I would recommend it for anyone who wants to make their own food. I haven’t used the bottle warmer function yet but all other features have been great
can’t complain about the work it does for a mum like me
I feel like I could use this forever even the bub is all grown up. I was surprised that more than food preparation, it also helps me in heating up a few baby things such as teats, seals and cover! After using this, I realized all the baby things are perfectly heated and sterilized. I remembered cooking soups and sauces a few times with this one, all of them turned out to be perfectly fine. I think it is more than just than an appliance.
I might use this until bub grows old.
It has been quite a smooth-sailing ride ever since I started using this except I should note one thing. The water droplet light would appear after about 18 mins and I thought the product was faulty. But after calling them I realized it means one of 2 things. Either the water chamber needs refilling or the unit needs descaling. I did both of these things and the issue stopped!
a very happy mum
I purchased this item for my daughter when my grandson was born. I thought it would be handy for sterilizing bottles, teats etc as well as making baby food when he got older. She loves it. Said it was so much easier than the was she made the baby food for her daughter, she would strain or blend all her food. The Cherub baby Natriblend has been a god send to her, she says its the most used item in her kitchen now :) p.s.. it also makes great soup!
easy to operate and assemble
This appliance is worth every cent. I’ve used it to make not just baby food but soup as well! It also can sterilize teats, pacifiers and baby bottles which I found really handy. I thought the price was really good as it was cheaper than Avent and did the same thing but more.
appliance that does the work of many
I have read a few reviews of this product. I was underestimating it back then because I thought it can only work as a food-maker only but after some research, I was surprised that it can also work as a mini sterilizer for small baby things. I even made sauces and soups with this one. It’s my best kitchen companion.
I am so in love with this. It takes very little space from my kitchen counter and it can do so many things, I can make purees and sauces out of this one. Not only that, I can also use this as a sterilizer the bottles and teats.Ive been running all the parts through the dishwasher and so far so good!
Can’t get enough of this
I once had a few appliances that sterilize baby bottles, warm and cook baby food. The appliances take so 4much space of the small kitchen counter I have. I never knew that one appliance can do all the work. I have a few bottles of the same brand and while I was browsing for more products I saw this. I immediately bought it and considering the price, I think this a good buy in comparison to buying all the appliances you need. It works perfectly fine, too but best of all it does the job of 3 different appliances in the 1.
Worth the price, totally in love with this one!
I love that this is an all-in-one appliance. It is very compact and can do many things in a short period of time. I used to have a cranky food processor before but when it got busted, I looked for a new appliance that would suit my needs and found this one. I love that I can make purees, soups and sauces. In addition, I also can sterilize small baby bottles and its accessories using this. Overall, I think this is worth the investment.
Hadn't even turned the machine on! Water Leaked EVERYWHERE
Unpacked it from the box, read instructions and began to fill the water compartment. All of sudden there was water all over my bench top and leaking from the machine! I emailed customer service to which they told me to fill out forms and attached pictures of receipt and image of fault. But we received the Cherub baby steamer/blender at our baby showers we don't have a receipt. It is a bit of a concern that a few people have had this issue and yet the company hasn't issued a product recall. With all the water coming out of the bottom of the machine, there is no way i will be switching it on at the power point.
Easy and fast to make baby food.
- Love that it steams, blends but also sterilizes my baby bottles, so I never bought a separate sterilizer!
- I got it for about $50 less than the other major brands on Sale so the value is great
- I found a trick, there’s a tray underneath the blender that has a cap to be placed over the top of the jug. It lets you blend a larger quantity of food and so I was able to make 8 food pouches (meals) worth of food per batch.
- I loved being able to make different meals at the same time as it has 2 chambers for different food to steam simultaneously
- The food jug is now stained a little I think from the carrots or sweet potato, its like a light orange color. I haven’t been able to get it out but I guess its no different to some food storage containers that have the same thing.
- There are about 6 pieces to wash after counting the 2 food chambers, jug and blades. Not so bad and I just put them in the dishwasher.
- The steel blade had marks on it after I removed from the dishwasher which I had to scrub off.
Overall this blender is awesome and has made cooking baby food so easy!
Great steamer blender
This is a great steamer blender for baby food. I love that it's easy to use with minimal buttons to press, it will turn off by itself too so I don't have to wait around it. Only thing I don't like is that when you blend, food is flying everywhere inside so bits can go back into the hole where the steam comes out and that hole as well as the water reservoir is impossible to clean as it's part of the machine itself!
Got my Cherub baby Natriblend Dec 2016. Loved it initially due to ease of use. But after only a couple of uses, My unit keeps leaking when I use the steaming option. Whole benchtop will be soaked in water after each use. Pretty sure that is not meant to happen! Called customer service- very unhelpful!
I love the purees I have been making with this steamer and blender. It's easy now for me to prepare vegetables into amazing purees for my kids and my entire family. I just place precut vegetables into the compartment to steam and then blend them into wonderful purees. No lumps just clear smooth and not watery puree. I heard this machine also helps sterilise bottles but I haven't done it yet as I use it exclusively for food.
