Since its launch in 2009, the Cuisinart Soup Maker has created a phenomenal level of interest. Press, reviews and blogs seem pretty impressed.. If the amount of interest in the machine is any measure, it must be true that soup has staged somewhat of a revival!
Those with an eye on the family finances will realize that it's going to be less expensive to make your own than to buy supermarket brands.
The idea of the product is to combine a blender with an integral hotplate, so that the ingredients can be prepared, cooked and then blended into soup. This is not a one-function machine though - it can function perfectly well as a blender in its own right.
Basic soup is easily produced:-
· Add the onion, together with a little oil to the blender, pulse the blade to chop and turn the hotplate on to fry the onion
· When finished, add the other ingredients along with the stock and bring to the boil
· When boiling, turn down the heat and simmer for the required length of time
· Extra ingredients can be added during the cooking
· Use the pulse mode to stir the soup occasionally
· At the end of the cooking time, blend to the required consistency, season and serve.
Your soup is prepared in in the region of 20 minutes - and you only have one jug to wash (although cleaning is said to be a bit of a fiddle)
When reading the reports of those who have bought the Soup Maker, you are struck by the overwhelming level of support for the product. Many say how they have loved the health benefits of home-made soup made with garden-fresh ingredients.
You get a 40-page recipe book included, but you will most likely stick to your own tried and tested favourites. Once you know how to use it, the Soup Maker can help you really broaden your repertoire.
If there's anything that causes some unease, it's the cleaning of the appliance after use. The best thing to do is to put some warm water and detergent into the jug as soon as it is emptied so that the soup does not dry, making it hard to remove.
Apart from that, the Cuisinart Soup Maker does not seem to have any downsides. It’s an appliance that seems to do all that it claims and would be a great addition to anybody’s kitchen.
