      eiram, we had an imarflex for a little over a thousand. it’s not bad but after we got the Tefal, no contest.

      baby food? LOL that was a LONG time ago, ha. I do remember a few. Let’s see… I’ve been meaning to get a flatbed scanner to digitize the kids’ photos… some of those photos are of them eating baby food. When I get the photos scanned, I can post an entry about baby food. :)

          Hi Connie! thanks for sharing this :D did not even expect that you would have something that talks about blenders but glad you did. I appreciate it :)

          question I have is, where did you buy your Tefal blender? I am a fan of fruit shakes and all our blenders before gave up on us because our ice are medium sized ice cubes from our freezer and not the crushed ones . so i definitely need something that can crush ice without overheating or worse, breaking.

          Thanks and more power!

            Hi, Connie. I’ve been looking for a blender that can crush ice cubes. Do you put the whole ice cubes into the Tefal blender to blend together with the fruits? or do you crush the ice into smaller pieces?

          • Connie says:

            We use tube ice so we just dump them in.

            Glad to see a bit conversation about blender. I just bought a im@rflex blender last night that cost P1500. I’m very excited to use it and tried it this morning to prepare my baby’s blended apple. I failed to see that it was not well blended. It was my first time to use a blender, i am not so sure if i made something wrong to have that result. I prepare the blender, have a piece of apple, peeled and cut it into cubes(QUESTION#1:or it’s okay to keep the apple unpeeled), put the apple in the pitcher and start push the buttons, at first i try pushing the ‘pulse’ button to control the rotation, but the apple still on it shape, a little part of the cubes only blended and once it stick in the pitcher glass it will not go back to the cutter or blade. Again, i tried another button but same scenario. Then i decided to take out the cubed apple with some blended part and mushed it manually. QUESTION#2: is not possible to blend a piece of apple? (my baby is only a six month old and i prepared 1 apple for her to have another variety)QUESTION#3: do i have to put a water or milk to have the rotation gradually? (i choose to have it purely apple to have the sense of fruits) QUESTION#4: did i got a wrong brand?
            Can you please assist me for this. I am a kitchen lover and of course i love to prepare foods for my baby… we are starting having her solid foods now, and i want her to try and to taste variety of foods most specially fruits and vegetables.
            Thank you so much…

            Blenders are designed to process already CUT food. Check the manufacturer’s instructions — it says cut the food to 1-inch cubes or small. And blenders need liquid to work; otherwise, the motor will burn.

            If you want to puree an apple without adding liquid, you’ll need a food processor, not a blender.

            As to apple skin, you’ll have to ask your baby’s pedia if kids can digest that.

          • Abienne says:

            thanks for that…

          • Donnagm says:

            There are a lot of websites that instruct how to prepare home made baby food. Like miss Connie said you need a processor.

    How many years did that Oster blender live and how much did you spend for it?

    I want your opinion do you think that going for expensive blenders a good idea? xD I want to buy one so I can make a smoothie in our home there are a couple of dead blenders lying around so I’ll make an effort to buy a new one and that can last thru my families grubby fingers xDDD
