    A little while ago @buttons put a thread on wondering if Soup Makers were any good. I like others said nothing wrong with the good old fashioned way of doing it a pan then blending etc, which it have done for years.
    Unbeknown to me my daughter bought me a soup maker for Christmas, to say I have I have changed my mind is an understatement .
    Making all sorts of soup no mess takes 22mins, tastes great so I have to admit I was wrong. Loving my Soup Maker.

    We had one for Christmas too.

    I am not a big fan of soup but guess what I have had 3 times since Christmas day?

    Good bit of kit though.

    We did get one, it is now my Ex's favorite bit of kitchen junk. If it doesn't move then it goes in and comes out as soup. They make it easy to have fresh soup in a flash.Enjoy it......(y)

    Am I right in assuming they only make "blitzed" soups? Nothing wrong with that most of our soups are, done using a handheld blender but it is nice to have something like minestrone as a contrast.

    We too got one for Christmas a year ago, chunky or smooth but I still do Tomato and basil soup the old way, we freeze our soft tomatoes until we get 2 or 3lb and then make a batch.

    I like making soups like pea, lentil and broths from dried ingredients. Do soup makers cope with them?

    Can you use it when it's not on electric, would be good in the van.

    You can make smooth chunky and Soutee' as well

    I should imagine if you soak them as usual could do, I have been doing all sorts of experiments with mine, it's a Morphey Richards as well. Soup in 22minutes is pretty good. (y)

    Read some of the reviews on Amethyst before adding it to our Christmas list and there were warnings about the food burning and sticking to the bottom but we've never had a problem.

    Yes or at least we can as we have 375 amps of leisure batts plus a 1500 watt inverter. Having said that we mainly use it when on site for a few days and make a batch.

    Think mine was £60 from Argos for our Morphy Richards. (Though. It was a present so was not supposed to know) :)

    The Morphy Richards is our 2nd soup maker the first was a cheapo can't remember the make but the food kept sticking to the bottom and heating elements failed twice.
    In the end binned the 3rd paid a bit more for the MR which a year on is still excellent.
