excellent product

If you check out the video its a juice maker as well.
I make my own soup but do it on the hob as its easy.
Heat added as its cheaper but if it was £20 i buy it.

£99 at sainsburys ....

Agree that it's an excellent bit of kit

A soup maker?! What's wrong with a bog-standard pan?

Chuck a supermarket £1 fresh veg soup mix in with 2 stock cubes, pinch of salt and teaspoon of mixed herbs. Press start and 20 mins later a perfect fresh tastey healthy soup. Also easy to clean....

Have you ever heard of a really clever invention called a "saucepan"?

Does almost the same job!

Saucepan and hand blender for me. Less than £40, more flexible and less kitchen clutter.

OK get your point, but this is about the price of the item compared to other retailers, not how much you personally think it is of use to you or if you would use it.

I'm heating this as it gave me the idea to then look on amazon ( I had vouchers ) and it worked out the same price plus through easyfundraising my kids school will get a bit of cashback.
Yes I have a saucepan and a blender ( not a hand one though ) but this looks absolutely ideal for me and I've never managed to make mushroom soup myself ( that looks or tastes any good) so that will be one of my first attempts
Looks to be a fair price for a good product if its what your looking for.
Thanks for posting

Hmmm.... Hot!

This is works by magic: put in ingredients and out comes soup. A pan can only boil.

I don't really understand this. Is this not just like a fancy kettle? I mean am I looking at this too simplistically or does it have some kind of inbuilt blender?

Edit: just read some reviews, it does blend.

If you put lentils or broth mix in, does it cook it as well as you would in a conventional way

Well I bought one, not exactly sure how often I will use it. Thanks for saving me money ^.^

It does say in the manual you can use lentils.

Just like Arnold J Rimmer, you don't seem to have heard of Gazpacho Soup

I have one of these and find it hopeless, let me just point out some things you may not know.

There are only two settings - chunky and smooth. Crunchy means it doesn't blend at all, smooth means that it blends to a pulp - and I mean a pulp. You can manually blend - I'll give it that.

There is no time control - it just cooks for 20-odd minutes and done. You can't stick it on for 30 minutes cos you know that's how long it will take to do the carrots - you put it on for 20 mins, then when that finishes put it on again and come back in 10 mins when your phone alarm tells you and turn it off manually. So much for total automation.

If food sticks to the bottom of the element then it will burn and nothing else will cook. Nothing moves the food around whilst cooking.

If you want to do any kind of meat then that needs to be cooked separately.

If you take the lid off for a microsecond to check how things are going then the power is cut and you need to start the cycle from the beginning again.


If someone had pointed these thing out to me I wouldn't have bought one. Got mine for £30 from Comet - Not voting as not currently any cheaper.

I have and I absolutely hate it, though Vichyssoise isn't too bad I could mange a bowl of that ( I've even made it myself in the past) but yes I do prefer my soup hot

Many positive reviews.great idea in principle, wonder if Morphy Richards have had customer feedback similar to beergoggles thoughts and recommendations and
may be introducing a revised/improved version soon ???

Sorry not beergoggles but wolfylee

just buy hand-blender with metallic stem so doesn't leach plastic

I put the ingredients into my saucepan, and out comes soup....my pan also simmers nicely for as long as I would like, and boils when I want...clever! I will say that, occasionally depending on the type of soup, I do use a hand blender. I usually only use this for lentil, but I don't blend it all - just a few whizzes of the blender and it gives a nice soup with a few chunks still in it. My favourite soup is chicken and rice, simmer a leftover chicken carcass (can't do that in the soup maker I presume?), remove bones and add chicken stock cubes. Add chopped onions and carrots, simmer until veg are partly cooked, and then add a couple of good handfuls of rice. Add salt and pepper to taste. Simmer for a while until ready. You can substitute potatoes for rice, or add other veg as wanted.

I made a chilled cream of lettuce soup many years ago (in the days when I actually made an effort!). I think it was made with chicken stock, lettuce (obviously!), onions and cream. Can't remember what else went into it but it worked out quite well. Like you I prefer hot soup, though, so I didn't make it again. Might be nice for a hot summer day?

Sorry, out of stock

I bought it few months ago from Amazon Warehouse for £35. Advertised "Used-Good" but came as new with all instructions. Amazon still have them in stock now, when I checked a minute ago.
Its absolutely brilliant! No matter what you put there, its always delvers delicious soup. Don't know why it works, but its just does. Very happy with mine!

I was looking at the Amazon Warehouse deal but no 2 year guarantee with it

Thanks never thought of that, I've cancelled the full price one and bought one of the warehouse one another £7 is worth the risk.

My lass has one of these and she uses it most Sundays to make soup for dinners.......It may just be a glorified kettle but its a good piece of kit that makes the process simple .... Good price :-)

Mine due for delivery soon ( amazon ) anyone got there's and had a go? I've got carrots parsnips onions and asparagus in the fridge, though I'm thinking the asparagus might be better steamed and with my roast chicken.
I'm thinking tomorrow I can use any leftover chicken as well

Verdict pleased I bought it. I've made a superb soup by just chucking in a mix of vege some stock and a few mixed herbs. With the weather changing soup and a chunk of bread for lunch today
