How to choose a soup maker

Welcome to What Soup Maker.
Our aim is to bring you information and reviews of some of the best soup makers on the market that will help you to make delicious fresh wholesome home-made soup with very little effort.

Making homemade soup is a great way to increase your family’s vegetable consumption and create simple and healthy meals without having to grab the tin opener ever again.

Soup is such a versatile meal that can be used as a starter to the main course or as the main course itself however in today’s society we dont seem to have time to stand over a pan stirring the ingredients to prevent the soup burning and sticking to the bottom of the pan.

So why spend most of your time cooking and washing up when a soup maker will help you cut down that time leaving you free to do other things.

We will help you choose the right soup maker for you and along the way we will review some of the popular models available from Morphy Richards, Cuisinart, Tefal and more.


Why would you buy a soup maker

If you love to make soup and are looking for an easy option you’re going to love using one of these electric soup makers, its the kitchen appliance that once used you will never want to go back to the shop bought tins that you used to buy.

If you fancy making fresh tasty steaming hot soups with the minimum amount of fuss in as little as 15 minutes then you should really consider buying a soup maker.

Soup makers blend all your ingredients and cook them in one easy to use machine.

Its fast, convenient and you can make a traditional satisfying and comforting meal every time and you don’t have to supervise during the cooking.

In fact electric soup makers are also very versatile blenders that not only creates piping hot soup but can be used to make cold smoothies, sauces or dressings in a mater of minutes, some can even crush ice.

Great for all year round use although you cant beat a steaming hot bowl of soup on a cold dark winters day.

No more saucepans. You are free to choose which fresh ingredients you need to create your own delicious healthy home-made soup and you can experiment with all sorts of combinations of vegetables and meats to make some very unique flavours to your own individual taste.

Simple add your fresh ingredients and let the machine do the rest. You can also decide how chunky or smooth you would like your soup to be with just a touch of a button.

Soup is a very healthy meal by itself or as a starter for your main meal but which ever way you have it you cant beat being home-made.


No more worrying about soup boiling over onto your cooker/hob making a mess and you have less washing up to do.

One downside is that is one more gadget that you need to store in a cupboard or keep on your kitchen worktop, plus some can be a bit big and cumbersome so do your research before buying.


Which Soup Maker to buy.

So you fancy buying one but not sure which one to buy. In reality there are three types that you can purchase.

Price isn’t the only difference when choosing one so below we take a look at each type to help you make your mind up.

The first type looks like an ordinary blender but has a heater to cook the soup and a hot plate on the bottom of the jug which is used for sautéing.

The way I see it is the best selling Cuisinart and the Warring are almost identical and now they are joined by the Breville.

These all work in more or less the same way, you add the ingredients that need to be sautéed first, using the stir button to stop any burning.

You then add your chopped ingredients of your choice and your stock, bring to boil and then simmer until fully cooked.

Finally blend to your desired consistency either chunky or smooth or anything in between.

You can see your soup cooking through the clear jug and it makes it easier to see the ingredients when blending.

Your soup is ready to be served in under 30 minutes. These machines are not only for making soup but can also be used as a traditional blender for cold ingredients such as smoothies.

These are the premium soup makers and usually cost the most.


Cuisinart SSB1U soup maker

The Cuisinart SSB1U soup maker and blender is beautifully engineered and robust yet at the same time very stylish so would sit very comfortably on any kitchen worktop.

With its elegant looks in black with silver trim and led control panel you won’t be disappointed with this chic looking all purpose kitchen appliance.

Combines cooking and blending in one although it all adds up this appliance being a bit heavy at 4kg.

Its 1.4 litre capacity hot or 1.75 cold capacity thermal glass jug should be large enough to feed a family of four, it also maintains the temperature after the cooking cycle has finished and has a carry handle so you can pour it straight from the jar into your soup bowls.

Measurements are marked on the front and rear of the jug and it comes with a snugly fitting lid with its own removable measuring cup.

The jug is also big enough to allow you to get to the bottom for easy cleaning but its best to use a brush (not included) rather than a cloth or sponge in case you catch your fingers on the sharp blades which aren’t removable. Unfortunately the jug is not dishwasher safe.

A 30 minute digital timer is used for the cooking duration which can be adjusted as you cook, great if you think your soup needs more time to cook or looks ready.

There are three heat settings to choose from, simmer, low or high for the actual cooking.

The big knob above the digital display controls the blending, you get four speeds and a pulse to play around with.

To the side of the big knob is a button, this controls the stir function.

The Cuisinart SSB1U is a versatile blender that can make delicious healthy homemade soups from start to finish in as little as 20 minutes thanks to its powerful 1000w integrated rapid heating element.

You can also use this soup maker for cold blending, perfect for making homemade sauces and smoothies.

Easy to use, for soups or sauces just add your fresh ingredients and watch as the machine does the rest. This versatile all in one is powerful enough to crush ice thanks to its powerful 500w motor and stainless steel blades.

To make soup using the Cuisinart simply chop and add your base ingredients that need to be sauteed into the the mixing jug after adding a touch of oil, the ingredients sit on the non-stick cooking plate where it will gently soften and brown.

Use the stir function to stop any burning (be aware that the stir function does in fact chop everything up a little bit, because it is basically a slow short blend), add your stock and the rest of your chopped ingredients and bring to the boil to let the fresh ingredients cook thoroughly.

If you want to use meat as an ingredient in your soup this will have to be cooked separately.

Then simply simmer gently until cooked and blend to your desired consistency, serve straight from the glass jug and enjoy.

The Cuisinart SSB1U soup maker comes with a self clean function so there is less washing up.

Verdict:

4 star rating

The Cuisinart SSB1U soup maker is a very well made and versatile machine that does every thing that you would expect and more.

Although the Cuisinart might seem a little pricey for piece of mind it does come with a 3 year guarantee.

It’s not that small so if you’ve got a compact kitchen you should take the trouble to measure it up first (H41 x W22 x D20cm).

At just over four stars from customer reviews this is definitely one to be considered if it fits in with your budget.

If you like shiny new kitchen gadgets that you use once and then store it in a cupboard never to be used again then save your money.

Customer Reviews.

“I got one of these as a birthday gift,its great,simple to use and easy to clean.just load it up,turn it on and hot tasty soup in 20 mins, best birthday gift I’ve had in ages, couldn’t live without it.”

“So easy to use and makes delicious soup. No more canned soup for me.
Brilliant product.”

“Does an excellent job and is simple to use and clean. Would certainly recommend this one.”

The next is what I like to call the kettle type simply because it looks like a big kettle, these include the best selling Morphy Richards and the Tefal.

They use a mixing paddle that is fixed to the lid which does all the blending.

A heating element in the base is there to cook the soup and you can get some models that will also sauté.

One drawback with these types of soup makers is the sides are solid and not clear so you can’t see inside as the soup cooks or blends.

Very simple to use, simple add all your ingredients into the jug and choose the desired setting for smooth or chunky soup, press the button and in as little as 15 minutes your soup is ready.

You do need to use the minimum and maximum levels on the kettle to make sure you have the right amount of ingredients and fluid in your soup maker.
These can also be used for blending cold ingredients for such things as smoothies and purées.


Morphy Richards 48822 soup maker

Morphy Richards 48822 soup maker

This Morphy Richards 48822 soup maker doesn’t look like the run of the mill blender, it looks more like a kettle but it’s fantastic for making delicious homemade soups quick and easily with the minimum amount of fuss.

The soup maker jug has a capacity of 1.6 litres which should be enough for up to 4 servings.

To make your fresh soups could not be simpler, just chop and add your ingredients of your choosing then add stock/water to the jug up to but no more than the max mark. Select the setting for your consistency either smooth or chunky and in as little as 21 minutes plus maybe 10 minutes to prepare and you will have the freshest tastiest homemade soup exactly as you like it.

If you are making a meat based soup then the meat will have to be cooked separately and then added to the jug.

What if you set it to chunky and it’s a bit too chunky for your liking, no problem all you need to do is use the blend button until you find the right consistency that your looking for. It really is that simple.

The Morphy Richards soup maker is very easy to store because of the compact design (about the size of a kettle). 4 function controls (smooth, chunky, juice and blend) and digital display panel mounted on the lid are clearly labelled making using this very clever kitchen appliance that much easier.

Watch as the LED display shows exactly how long your soup has left to cook.

Easy to clean as the cutting blades are located in the lid which can be removed but be careful of the sharp blades, the reast of the jug is easily cleaned with warm soapy water.

There are some concerns about the base burning but this is easy to over come by adding a bit of oil or butter before cooking to stop your food sticking also add your stock into the jug first which also helps.

Why stop at making soups, you can make great smoothies and you can use it to puree and is great for blending baby foods.

Verdict:

4.5 star rating

We really like the Morphy Richards 48822 soup maker, it’s simple to use with only three buttons, smooth, chunky and blend to worry about.

Easy to clean and store, with customer ratings of four and a half stars this is one to take a close look at.

Morphy Richards 501011 Saute and Soup Soup Maker

Morphy Richards 501011 Saute and Soup Soup Maker

The Morphy Richards 501011 Saute and Soup Soup Maker is the latest edition to the Morphy Richards range and looks more like a kettle than a blender.

Its based on the 48822 but now has the ability to saute a small amount of ingredients at he the start of the soup making process.

The exterior design hasn’t changed much from the original soup maker and its just as simple to use. The lid houses the motor and the serrated mixing blades.

The exterior is stainless steel and plastic with a non-stick coating inside.

On the lid you will find two buttons “Mode and Select”, these buttons allow you to choose any one of the four programs which include “Smooth, Chunky, Juice and Blend”

The saute function is a switch on the jugs handle and you can turn it on or off without having a program selected.

The handy saute switch allows you to saute ingredients which could be onions, meat, bacon, garlic, ginger or spices.

Using the saute button saves sauteing your ingredients in a separate pan which in turn saves on washing up.

Once you’ve sauteed your ingredients you can then add your chopped vegetables and stock up to the max fill level (be aware the fill level mark is easy to see on the outside of the jug, but not so easy on the inside).

Once all your ingredients are in the soup maker you need to decide on whether you want your soup smooth or chunky.

Whilst some soup makers have heat and timing settings that allow variations for cooking  the Sauté and Soups programs have been designed to be as easy to use as possible.

If you want smooth soup you just press the smooth button and in 21 minutes plus about 10 minutes to prepare time and you will have delicious hot soup ready to serve straight from the jug.

You will notice that the soup maker goes through a cycle of heating, resting and blending and you can see this on the lids led display.

If on the other hand you want chunky soup you press the chunky button and in 28 minutes (again add the time it takes to prepare your ingredients) your soup will be ready.

If you find that its still to chunky once finished there is a blend button that you can press to make it to the consistency of your choice. This can be a bit hit and miss as you cant actually see into the jug, you will have to take the lid off to check how its doing.

At any time during the cooking (as long as its not blending) you can add more ingredients like herbs, spices or seasoning. Just lift the lid and the soup maker will pause the cooking time, add your ingredients and replace the lid and it will resume cooking.

There is one more button on the led control panel and this is a non heating function for juicing which allows you to create delicious, healthy smoothies and juice drinks in two minutes.

The 1.6 litre capacity is large enough to make up to four servings in one go or for batch cooking.

Its compact in size which makes it easy to store away in your cupboard after use – H32 x W24.5 x D16.3cm.

2.19kg

Verdict

4.5 star rating

The Morphy Richards 501011 Saute and Soup Soup Maker has all the benefits of the best selling 48822 but with the added benefit of the saute function.

With this in mind and the fact it’s only costs a few pounds more I’m sure it wont be long before it becomes a best seller itself.

The Tefal Easy Soup also comes with an easy 3 minute cleaning program that aims to reduce your washing up and a recipe book with 30 different soup, smoothie and dessert recipes to get you started.

Verdict

4.5 star rating

The Tefal Easy Soup Automatic Soup Maker has come to the party a bit late but its been well worth the wait, customer reviews are good and it deserves the 4.5 stars that it’s been awarded. Don’t be fooled by the name, the Easy soup may be a soup-maker, but it’s also great for making cold smoothies or fruit compote if you use the blend function.

The last type looks just like a normal blender.

These do the same job as a jug blender but with the added feature of a heated element that heats the ingredients but with no hot plate for sautéing.

All the machines will cook your soup in under 30 minutes with no need for pots and pans as the ingredients are cooked in the respective jug that you then use to pour straight into a bowl or mug of your choice making life a lot easier and less washing up.

You can get up to six servings but are more likely to get about four which should be ample for the average family.

The beauty of using a soup maker is once you have added the ingredients of your choice the machine does all the work for you.

They can be kept on your worktop or if space is limited or you don’t like leaving your appliances on show you can store them neatly in a cupboard.

Other factors to look out for when choosing a soup maker

If your thinking of buying one of these appliances to use in your kitchen there are a few things to think about before you purchase one.

Features:

The first thing to decide is whether you want an appliance just for making soup or do you want multi purpose appliance that can do so much more.

Some of these appliance can do diverse things such as crush ice, grind coffee and even steam vegetables on the other end is appliances dedicated to just making soup with maybe a blend feature that can be used for non soup making activates.

Sauté feature: Some soup makers allow you to lightly fry your meat or vegetables in the blender before cooking. This helps to add flavour for a tastier soup.

Sauté feature:

There are some soup makers that allow you to sauté meat and vegetables before cooking so if this is something you would like to do look for this feature.
Capacity:<
Typically most of these appliances will make about 4 bowls of soup at a time but there are some that that have the capacity to make 6 bowls which would be a better buy for a larger family.

Some soup makers have max/min capacities margins that are very small so it can limit your cooking options if you only want to make a single portion.

Don’t forget soup can be frozen so if you make to much on purpose or by mistake put it in a sealed container and freeze it ready for another day.

Blending:

All soup makers blend but some give you more options on how you blend i.e.smooth or chunky, so if you are looking for more variety choose one with different blend settings. Most will allow manual blending so you can get that perfect consistancy.

Sauté:

Some soup makers come with a Sauté function that allows you to lightly fry your vegtables or meat in the actual blender before cooking.

If the soup maker doesn’t come with this functio you will have to Sauté your ingrediants in a frying pan first before adding it to the soup maker, more washing up!.

Time:

Depending on which appliance you choose you should have piping hot soup between 15 and 30 minutes.

Cleaning:

Although there is a lot less cleaning when using a soup maker you still need to clean it.

The jug type blenders can be a bit difficult and you need to watch out for the sharp blades were as the kettle type blender is a lot easier.
Look out for dishwasher safe parts and non-stick coatings as this will make life easier.

Weight and ease of use:

You might find soup maker lids can be a bit fiddly to put on and take off, also the soup maker blenders often have glass jugs which can be heavy even when empty.

Price:

When it comes to price you should consider making a budget and try and stick to it.

Most soup makers are priced between £40 and £120.

When looking at buying one of these products you will notice the difference in price from the cheapest to the more expensive, this is something that you have to way up with which features you would like and the money you would like to spend.

You will find different types of blenders to suit all tastes and budgets on this website, so feel free to browse our pages for impartial information and reviews of some of the best selling soup makers on the market today.
We aim to make buying these great machines easy and a real pleasure.

Tips for using a soup maker

If possible prepare your ingredients in advance or buy pre chopped vegetables at your local supermarket.

Use boiled water to make your stock, if using cold water from the tap you may find that some tough vegetables aren’t quite cooked enough.

Chopping the ingredients into smaller pieces also helps too cook tough vegetables to cook.

Always ensure the lid is secured before cooking.

Most soup makers don’t have long enough settings to cook meat so make sure meat is pre-cooked.

Some burning may occur on the bottom of the jug due to starch being present in some foods. One way to prevent this is to add a half a cup of stock or water into the jug before you add any ingredients.

Always make sure that any frozen ingredients that you are using are fully thawed before use unless you are making smoothies or milkshakes.

Unless you want to be splatted with hot liquids never remove the lid whilst the soup maker is cooking.

Always adhere to the manufactures max/min guidelines that are usually marked on the jug.

Take care when cleaning and never submerge any part that contain electrical components into water as this could damage the appliance.

Always read the manufactures instruction manual before you use the product.

Safety first when using a soup maker

  • Never over or under fill your soup maker, keep within the max/min marks.
  • Never immerse any electrical part in water.
  • Never leave it near the edge of your worktop where it could be dragged or knocked off.
  • Never leave it unattended if you have children around.
  • Never open the lid during cooking.
  • Never use the soup maker to to warm up shop bought soup as this might burn the base and cause damage.
  • Never touch the blades and always be careful when cleaning them.


Recipe Books

There are plenty of recipe books for soups that you can use with your machine, they might have inspirational recipes you would never had thought about, so be adventures and impress your family and friends with your new found skills.
