    WARNING!!

    My friend found a yahoo thread about the Beaba Babycook, saying that it has dangerous plastics:
    http://ca.answers.yahoo.com/question...5031119AAUnf3n
    "Looks like an amazing gadget, but this product is not safe for babies. The bowl (used for steaming, defrosting, etc) is made of polycarbonate. Polycarbonate is the material that leeches BPA into contents when heated. I contacted the manufacturer and they confirmed the bowl is polycarbonate (Williams-Sonoma will tell you it's "polyethylene and other plastics") and that they have no plans to switch to a BPA-free plastic

    Hi clowe77,

    i was wondering that too because when it's steaming, it gets really hot. Anyway, I use it more on blending than steaming.

    Thanks for the info.

    What is the material of the steaming basket? The food doesn't touch the bowl, only the steaming basket. Does the BPA still seep through?

    The Chicco machine is made of PSU, supposed to be BPA free.

    tallmama -- thanks for the info. i've done a little bit research and it seemed that PSU may contain BPA? no?
