Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy, but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed products and single out the most convincing reviews. (You can learn more about our rating system and how we pick each item here.)

While we’ve written about the best baby mobiles and the best pumping bras before, here we’re going deep on the best baby-food makers on Amazon, according to the people.

NUK Mash and Serve Food Preparation Bowl

4.3 stars, 3,916 reviews


With over 2,700 five-star reviews, this mash-and-serve bowl is highly recommended for its ease of use. “I bought this initially for making baby food while traveling/on-the-go but as soon as it arrived, we used it right away,” says one happy reviewer, adding, “Sure, one can argue (poorly at that) that a fork and bowl could yield the same results, but dump your fresh food right in, give the small pulverizer a push, and about two spins later, you have fresh baby food.

The portability and size, described by one reviewer as “the perfect size for my toddler,” are also lauded. “These bowls are shallow and wide, making it easy for him to self-feed,” they continue. “The lids are great and fit on very securely. I use these bowls to make meals and snacks for him and then put them in the fridge for later. When I need to feed him, I just grab one and pop it open and microwave it if needed or throw the whole thing in my purse to take with us.” Another reviewer explains how this bowl has helped them manage portion control: “I used to cut the food into small cubes and put them in the blender to make vegetables for my baby, but that is not a good way because you have to make a larger amount than the baby needs! It was a great decision to buy this for making quick and easy baby food. I mash potatoes, carrots, and cabbages in this bowl that does the job well and is easy to clean as well.

And now for some micro-picks for every type of baby-food maker you might be looking for.

Infantino Squeeze Station Baby Food Maker

$25 now 20% off

4.6 stars, 1,282 reviews


Reviewers love this device for making custom baby food blends, especially since it presses the food into single-serving, ready-to-go pouches. One reviewer writes, “The Infantino Squeeze Station is a must-have for anyone who makes their own baby food. Wish I had this with my other two children. I honestly did not expect it to be as useful and fun as it was.” Another reviewer says, “I purchased this in hopes of making my life a little simpler trying to make homemade food pouches for two toddlers, and I was not disappointed. You can whip together your puree and fill three bags in a short period of time, it’s awesome,” though they add, “Also, be careful not to fill the food tubes too high.”

However, in all, this is described as an easy-to-use baby-food press that’s still useful well into toddlerhood. “It’s very easy to use, easy to wash, easy to store. I LOVE IT,” raves one commenter, adding, “Now that my daughter is 2+, I use it to make yogurt pouches (what I was going today). I throw my yogurt in a food processor with a variety of fruits, blend well, fill using the squeeze station, and VOILA! I have yogurt pouches that are good in the fridge/freezer without having to buy the ones from the store with god-only-knows what preservatives in it.

Magic Bullet Baby Bullet Baby Care System


4.1 stars, 1,103 reviews


With the traditional power and operation as a standard personal blender, this Baby Bullet has a smaller bowl and convenient storage cups for quick baby-food preparation, a feature that’s appreciated in many of the comments. “Works so well on any type of food. We take large pieces of chicken, veggies, etc., and have no problem shredding it. Can be used to shred and puree, which is great for different ages,” writes one satisfied reviewer. “I loved this item! I have a 6-month-old baby, and I refuse to feed her any type of processed food even if it says ‘organic,’” says another reviewer, who continues, “I make all of her baby food with the Baby Bullet. The jars are so convenient. … It’s easy to use and easy to clean. The food is fresh and healthy for your little one!” Another reviewer adds, “My grandbaby is enjoying fresh vegetables and fruits and even meat. No more watered-down baby food — and the savings is unbelievable. I got ten jars of chicken from one chicken breast. And being able to freeze it is also a BIG SAVINGS!”

KitchenAid KHB1231BY 2-Speed Hand Blender

4.3 stars, 1,242 reviews


Not exclusively for baby-food making, this hand blender is worth mentioning for the rave reviews about its puréeing. “I’m glad I purchased this for making puréed baby food over the products specifically marketed for baby food,” writes one reviewer. “I purée more than I need and freeze the rest. The best part about it is that it’s super easy to clean.” Another reviewer likes that this blender is plastic-free: “I did an extensive research about baby food makers, and I really wanted to get one of those steamer/blender to save time. However, I don’t think steaming baby food in a plastic container is a good idea, and the glass one I found had some terrible reviews. SO I settled for this blender and I am so happy with the result. I pureed green peas with it and with adding some water, the consistency is PERFECT and it only took less than a minute!”

And reviewers who use it to make baby food like that it can make a lot in one go. “I’ve only been using this thing for about three days, but in that time I’ve made about six months worth of baby food with it,” writes one. “Potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, apples, pears, peas, mangoes, kiwi, you name it. In the past I’ve made baby food with a single serving smoothie maker and a top-of-the-line food processor, and I honestly prefer the way this thing purées. Simple clean-up, easy to grip, great control over what you’re blending/puréeing, the speed is easy to change, and it gets the job done!”

OXO Good Grips Food Mill

4.2 stars, 1,000 reviews


This product is another one that’s not specifically designed to make baby food, but dozens of commenters purchased this OXO food mill expressly for that purpose. “I purchased this mill with the intentions of making baby food. So far it has worked great for banana puree, mango and other soft, ripe fruits,” writes one, who adds, “I would recommend the product over the smaller, strictly-for-baby-food mills because of its capacity for making large batches. ” Lots of grandparents also like it because of the versatility. “I love this food mill. I needed something to make applesauce with,” writes one, adding, “My 4-year-old old granddaughter helped with he turning of the mill. She loved it. I would highly recommend this product. As a matter of fact, I just ordered another one for my friends daughter’s baby shower. It will be a must for making your own baby food.”

Dash Masha 2X


4.5 stars, 167 reviews


Similar in functionality to the immersion hand blender, this Dash Masha has an added strainer element that helps create the smoothest purées. “This is the best masher ever,” says one reviewer. “It takes little effort to operate it, and it cleans up very easy. This is the tool to have if you love to mash potatoes, avocados, or anything else soft.” Another reviewer writes, “I prepare about 10 pounds of mashed potatoes each night from scratch. I have destroyed two wand hand mixers, a blender, and a food processor from the gummy starchy resistance of the potatoes. This machine works PERFECTLY! It never overloads, because of the design. The potatoes become smooth and mashy within a minute of use — without the addition of water or milk to thin it out!” The result is that this masher is “very good for mashing up for baby food even for a first-time baby.”

$100 at Amazon


QOOC 4-in-1 Mini Baby Food Maker

4.4 stars, 102 reviews


“I love this product! Easy to use, and the fact that it comes with a steamer and a blender at the same time is one big thing for me. For a busy mom like me, this is a great buy,” writes one satisfied reviewer about this all-in-one baby-food maker. Another admits, “Lots of people say it’s unnecessary, just use a regular blender, immersion blender, etc. Well, after using it all, I can say that I am very pleased with this purchase. I love that you can cook, purée, and reheat all in one device. It really makes clean up so much easier.” They also add, “I love how quickly this device purées while barely making a sound. I can actually prepare food while baby is sleeping. And, the puréed food slides out so easily.” Other reviewers also appreciate the relatively subtle sound: “If your child’s nursery is right next to your kitchen (like our situation) you will find this a quieter process. Not without noise by any means, but quieter than a standard blender.”

The Spruce Eats Top Picks

The OXO Good Grips Food Mill takes our top spot since it fits various bowl sizes and is easy to store. Budget-friendly Mirro Foley Stainless Steel Healthy Food Mill is great for making everything from springtime strawberry jam to batches of applesauce in the autumn.

Before food processors were commonplace on kitchen countertops, many home cooks relied on a decidedly lower-tech device for making fruit and vegetable purées: the food mill. The gadget is perfect for making homemade baby food from scratch, wholesome sauces, smooth vegetable soups, and more. A food mill combines a large sieve with a crank-turned mechanism that forces food through the holes to create an evenly textured purée. If you’re thinking that’s exactly what a food processor or blender is for, think again—the food mill has a special ability neither of those machines has.

“The reason you would have a food mill over an immersion blender or food processor is that it removes seeds, skins, and pits,” says Marisa McClellan, cookbook author and creator of the website Food in Jars.

An avid canner, McClellan turns to one of her five food mills to puree tomatoes and apples in bulk. It takes away a lot of the tedium involved with these home cooking projects, including peeling, skinning, and seeding fruits and vegetables. She adds that using a food mill provides another significant benefit: “Your texture will be very uniform and a lot closer to a product that’s store-bought,” she says. 

Here are the best food mills for whatever you plan to purée.

Who else recommends it? BestReviews also picked the Oxo Good Grips Food Mill.

What do buyers say? 88% of 4,700+ Amazon reviewers rated this product 4 stars or above.

For most home cooks, this well-designed model is the only one you’ll ever need. Oxo's Food Mill is very easy to assemble and disassemble. The clever design includes legs that snap out for resting your mill securely over various sizes of bowls, lifting the mill up and away from the food you’re processing. When you’re done, those legs flip in for easy storage. A stainless steel bowl makes it suitable for hot or cold foods, and it doesn’t pick up stains from ingredients like tomatoes or beets.

The food mill includes three different grinding discs, so you can choose the exact texture you want: smooth, chunky, coarse, or something in between. As with most Oxo products, the ergonomic design on the crank and handle makes it a pleasure to turn and hold. “This is a really great food mill for whenever you do a single batch of something, say 12 pounds or less,” says McClellan.

Capacity: 2.3 quarts | Material: Stainless steel | Weight: 3.25 pounds | Dimensions: 14.75 x 10.25 x 7.25 inches | Dishwasher Safe: Yes | What’s Included: Three grinding discs

What Our Experts Say

“A good food mill should be a sturdy piece of equipment that can handle food for a crowd. While it can be used to quickly go through small amounts of product, a food mill is best for quickly puréeing large amounts of food versus a smaller tool like a ricer, which is a slower process. Food mills are used for breaking up food for soups, purées, and sauces. It’s great for mashed potatoes without the gummy and sticky texture.” — Joshua Resnick, lead chef and chef-instructor at the Institute of Culinary Education

What We Don't Like

The Foley Manufacturing Company is the original creator of the food mill. Since the 1920s, it has been a go-to brand for housewares, but the food mill was especially innovative for its ability to efficiently sift flour. Its original purpose was to replace bulky flour sifters, the food mill is capable of much more. Over the years, the design has changed and food mills have more features, but this Foley food mill takes it back to the basics—it’s a simple tool that mashes and strains food.

“This food mill is a nice option because it's sturdy and comes in multiple sizes. It’s great for someone who cans jam or applesauce, makes a lot of tomato sauce, or cooks larger portions for a family,” says Anne Danahy, RDN, a registered dietitian nutritionist, recipe developer, and author of the cookbook “The Mediterranean Diet Cookbook for Two”. “It has hooks on the side to fit securely over a bowl or pot, and its stainless steel construction makes it dishwasher-safe.”

Some reviewers have noticed metal shavings when using this food mill, but this is easy to prevent. The crank should only be turned clockwise—turning it in the other direction dulls the blade, resulting in the metal shavings.

This food mill also comes in a 3.5-quart version for processing a larger capacity of food.

Price at time of publish: $39.99

Capacity: 2 quarts | Material: Stainless steel | Weight: 1.85 pounds | Dimensions: 13. 87 x 8.37 x 18.62 inches | Dishwasher Safe: Yes | What’s Included: One grinding disc

What our Experts Say

“A food mill is a handy, low-tech, and less expensive alternative to a food processor. It grinds and purées food smoothly while also removing skins and seeds. While it requires some muscle to turn the handle, it can save time because you don't have to peel, core, or seed your food before puréeing it. Food mills are great for making silky smooth mashed potatoes, tomato sauce, and applesauce.” — Anne Danahy, RDN, a registered dietitian nutritionist, recipe developer, and author of the cookbook “The Mediterranean Diet Cookbook for Two”

What We Like

  • Doesn’t require arm strength

  • Lid with food chute limits splashing

  • Power switch easily reverses direction

What We Don't Like

  • Small capacity

If you’re an avid home canner or anyone else with a lot of produce on deck to purée, you want to go for an electric model like this one. The motorized milling action means you don’t need to crank by hand—an action that is fine in small doses but can cause major arm fatigue over time.

“An electric mill is best for anyone doing a lot of something," says McClellan. "I came to really appreciate it when I started processing more than 25 pounds of tomatoes at a time." Like manually operated food mills, this one includes three stainless steel discs to select the precise texture you want. It also eliminates the need to strain, skin, or seed your produce. The built-in splash guard prevents a mess as the mill whips through pounds of food more quickly than you could by hand. It’s also an ideal choice for gardeners with bumper crops they want to process, give away, or store for the winter.

Price at time of publish: $69.99

Capacity: 1.75 quarts | Material: Plastic, stainless steel | Weight: 4 pounds | Dimensions: 15.5 x 9.5 x 6. 5 inches | Dishwasher Safe: Some parts | What’s Included: Three milling discs

What Our Experts Say

“Food mills should be used on soft foods so as to not damage the tool. It should be disassembled to be cleaned as best as possible and dried completely before being reassembled—otherwise, rust can form in the nooks and crannies. It’s great for quickly processing food like tomato sauce, mashed potatoes, and baby food.” — Joshua Resnick, lead chef and chef-instructor at the Institute of Culinary Education

There are many baby food makers out there, but all you need is a simple food mill to yield creamy baby food with a consistency similar to those at the store. This one is small, compact, and travel-friendly. It doesn’t require a power source or batteries, so you can use it on the go. 

While most food mills have a bottomless bowl, which requires a secondary bowl or pot to collect the milled food, this one stores the food in the same component. You can mill the food using the easy-turn handle and feed your baby directly from the wide-mouth container with the included spoon. It may only yield one or two servings per use, but any leftover food can be stored in the same container with the lid that it comes with.

When you’re done, you can place the mill on the top rack of the dishwasher for easy clean-up.

Price at time of publish: $29.99

Capacity: 115 milliliters | Material: Stainless steel and plastic | Weight: 0.58 pounds | Dimensions: ‎3.9 x 6.3 x 9.1 inches | Dishwasher Safe: Yes | What’s Included: Built-in stainless steel blade

What Our Experts Say

“Make sure you cook any hard foods (like apples or potatoes) first. The softer the food, the easier to grind. Food mills are great for making homemade baby food because they turn cooked fruits or vegetables into a nice smooth purée free from skins or seeds. — Anne Danahy, RDN, a registered dietitian nutritionist, recipe developer, and author of the cookbook “The Mediterranean Diet Cookbook for Two”

What We Don't Like

If you’re going to be milling purees, you’ll probably want a comfy handle, and this ergonomic design delivers. It’s built for smooth and easy turning to put less pressure on your hand and arm as you mill through pounds of produce. The handle and knob are covered in grippy no-stick silicone.

The food mill includes the typical three grating discs for mashed potatoes, salsa, or silky smooth vegetable soups. Two looped metal hooks allow you to rest the food mill on the rim of a bowl so that it stays in place. When you’re all done with your project, simply put it in the dishwasher for no-fuss cleanup. Cuisinart is known for its quality, and this food mill reflects the brand’s reputation. The durable design and quality materials will stand the test of time.

Price at time of publish: $39.99

Capacity: 2.3 quarts | Material: Stainless steel | Weight: 1.43 pounds | Dimensions: 14.8 x 10 x 3.7 inches | Dishwasher Safe: Yes | What’s Included: Three cutting discs

What Our Experts Say

"It's best to rinse your food mill well right after using it. If you let it sit, the food will dry and harden, making it much harder to clean. Most are dishwasher-safe on the top rack." — Anne Danahy, RDN, a registered dietitian nutritionist, recipe developer, and author of the cookbook “The Mediterranean Diet Cookbook for Two”

What We Like

What We Don't Like

If you want to invest in an upgraded food mill, look no further than this beauty from Rösle, which Fine Cooking calls "the Cadillac of home food mills. " Its gleaming appearance is just the beginning of what sets it apart from less expensive models. The sleek, elegant design goes beyond the appearance. This food mill’s solid, single-piece construction leaves no welding seams for food to get stuck in. It’s unusually spacious and reassuringly heavy.

The crank turns so smoothly you can mill longer with less exertion. It’s designed with very little space between the blade and the sieve, which speeds up milling and reduces the effort required. It’s sold with only two discs, but others are for sale separately. It works so well that even the tiniest seeds—like those in raspberries—don’t pass through the sieve as food is processed.  

Price at time of publish: $199.95

Capacity: 3.25 quarts | Material: Stainless steel | Weight: 3 pounds | Dimensions: 17.5 x 9.25 x 7.5 inches | Dishwasher Safe: Some parts | What’s Included: Two sieve discs

Final Verdict

The Oxo Good Grips Food Mill is a great all-purpose food mill. If you’re planning on puréeing large quantities on a regular basis, check out the Weston Electric Food Mill.

What to Look for in a Food Mill

Mill Capacity

Keep in mind the amount of food you'll want to process at one time. Busy parents might prefer a tiny capacity that travels easily to make fresh purées for little eaters. Home canners preparing to process pounds of fruits and vegetables will want a large device—just note that these take more effort to crank and space to store. Midsize devices may be better for fresh sauces for small families.

Disc Options

Food mills typically come with interchangeable discs with holes of varying sizes for puréeing different foods. If you want to make seed-free jams and berry sauces, look for a mill with an ultra-fine disc (1 to 1.5 millimeters). A fine disc (2 millimeters) will remove both skin and seeds from cooked tomatoes and create creamy soups and silky purées. A medium disc (3 millimeters) smoothly mashes many vegetables and fruits, and a coarser disc works for chunkier sauces and soups.

Handle Components

A top-crank food mill should have an easy-to-turn handle, usually with a stabilizing crossbar at the top and a blade at its base that moves the food in the mill’s bowl. The flatter that blade, the more efficiently it will push food through the grinding disc instead of just spinning it in the bowl. While that blade compresses the food, the crossbar keeps pressure on the grinding disc to leave skin and seeds behind.

Sturdy Base

Whether electric or manual, resting or clamped to a counter or bowl, you'll want a sturdy base to keep the food mill steady. Food mills that rest on bowls typically have feet, hooks, or other supports that keep them above the resulting purée. Some may only rest on specific bowl or pot sizes and lips, so it’s worth setting everything up and testing the stability before adding cooked food.


How do you use a food mill?

For most manual top-crank food mills, place cooked food into the mill’s bowl and turn the handle so that the blade sweeps through the food, separating skin and seeds and sending purée through the grinding disc. Unless the manufacturer’s instructions say otherwise, insert the removable disc so that the convex part faces up. Food mills almost always work best if you first cook the food until it is soft. If it still jams up, try reversing the direction you’re spinning the crank every few turns.

Electric food mills can work in the same way by toggling a switch or pushing a button. Continuous feed food mills, either manual or electric, work similarly, but may have parts designed and arranged differently so that they can handle high volumes.

How do you process tomatoes in a food mill?

Unless the food mill’s manual says differently, start with cooked tomatoes that are softened and cool enough to handle. Set up the food mill with your desired grinding disc size along with a bowl or pot to capture the purée. Work the tomatoes through in batches until the remaining skin and seeds are quite dry, emptying the collected scraps into the compost as needed to keep the blade turning smoothly.

Does a food mill remove tomato seeds and skin?

Food mills are designed to remove both skin and seeds, but how efficiently they do so depends on the grinding disc size. Discs with holes larger than 2 millimeters will likely let some tomato seeds through, but will give you a chunkier sauce. Ultra-fine discs will produce a thinner purée free of seeds.

Can you use a food mill for canning?

For an avid canner, a food mill is worth its storage space with the rest of your canning prep supplies. It quickly turns cooked-until-soft fruit, including tomatoes, into a smooth sauce, removing seeds and peels along the way. You may want to make room for it in your daily-use kitchen space, as it can also be used to mash potatoes, cream soups, and purée baby food. Choose a model with a large capacity when prepping multiple batches of tomato sauce, applesauce, or berry jam for canning.

How do you clean a food mill?

To keep a food mill working smoothly, scrape scraps from the mill’s bowl as needed between batches. Once you’re finished using the food mill, immediately take it apart and rinse any remaining food to make it easier to wash completely clean later. Some or all parts are likely dishwasher safe (check the manufacturer’s instructions), but hand washing may keep them functioning well for longer.

How We Researched

To compile this list, our team of editors and contributors spent hours researching the best food mills on the market, evaluating their key features—such as ease of use, material, and performance—in addition to reviews from customers and other trusted sources. We carefully compared the key components of an excellent food mill, from handle design to the quality of puree it produced. We then used this research to assign a star rating from one to five (five being the best; one being the worst) to certain products on the list.

I will sell TimA spice mill for grinding spices. White with marble gray stripes. The windmill is made of acrylic. The mechanism of the mill is made of ceramics. Like all mills with ceramic knives, it retains the taste and aroma of spices. With its help, you can grind not only black, white, red, green peppers, but also any other seasoning for meat, vegetable, fish dishes: cinnamon, grated nuts, dried berries, herbs, roots. The grind size is adjusted by tightening or loosening the adjuster nut. Do not fully tighten the nut, otherwise the mill may break. Only dry spices can be ground. The height of the mill is 22 cm. New, only without packaging (given as a gift, but the color did not fit my kitchen ..) There are 2 mills of the same color (pair), each 800 rubles. But if you immediately take 2 mills, then I will give in for 1200 rubles.

New condition. In use was a couple of times. This Moulinex food mill is a great tool for making homemade baby puree from fibrous ingredients like peas, dried apricots or prunes as it pushes through the smooth pulp and leaves the fiber behind. In addition, it pumps out seeds and skins from tomatoes to make soup or sauce, and makes the puree the most fluffy. Made from high quality stainless steel, this tomato vegetable grinder has three heavy duty blades with fine, medium and coarse holes to accommodate a variety of different foods. With the right knife installed, you can load up to 2.1 liters of puree ingredients into the grinder. Then simply turn the handle to push fruits and vegetables through the paddle sieve. The food grinder has three non-slip feet that allow it to stand on any pot or bowl that is 7 1/2 inches in diameter or smaller.

The boom in nutrition has sparked an increased interest in home-cooked products, including home-milled flour. Thanks to such a device as a home mini mill, it can be easily obtained from grains of cereals and legumes. This fairly simple device has now become a frequent guest in the kitchens. It is quite compact, so it does not take up much space, but it allows you to independently grind not only cereals, but also spices and coffee beans.

The main advantages that a home mill has are the speed and variability of grinding ingredients. With this device, you can get fresh pea, wheat, buckwheat, rice, corn, nut flour or grind any cereal for baby food in two minutes.

Home mills for grinding grain are manual and electric. The main difference between them is performance. It is obvious that a device powered by the mains is capable of grinding a larger volume of grains in less time. Most household hand mills are designed specifically for spices, although flour grinders are also found among them.

The main functional element on which the entire operation of the device is built is a millstone. The quality of grinding and products that can be ground on a household appliance depend on them. In the simplest models of flour mills, it is allowed to grind exclusively for dry grains. Do not use them to grind coffee, spices, nuts, sunflower seeds or mustard. This is due to the fact that oil accumulates on the millstones, they become clogged and fail.

Although there are devices in which the grinding of oil-containing seeds is acceptable. Instead of classic stone millstones, the devices are equipped with metal rollers. Combined mills can also perform similar tasks, in which you can not only grind grains into flour, but also cook homemade cereal - an integral part of a healthy diet.

As for coffee beans and spices, you will have to buy a special device for them: a coffee grinder and a mini spice grinder. Both devices work on the same principle as a flour grinder, and therefore also belong to the same category of household goods.

Devices for grinding grains into flour are not too different from each other. There are only a few key parameters that affect the quality of their work. We recommend focusing on the main criteria:
