Rated 3 out of 5 by sarah42g Now my second on has packed in
As a concept its great. People say use a pan but on a busy workday morning you don't have time to stand in the kitchen watching a pan. With a soupmaker you can add the ingredients and walk away safe in the knowledge the machine will cook and stir the ingredients to perfection.
However, I'm now on my second one of these. The first stopped working after 6 months, this one after 8 months, so I'm back off to the shop once again to return it. Considering it comes with a standard 1 year guarantee, upgraded to 2 years if you register it with Morphy Richards gives you the suggestion it will work for at least a year, but sadly in my experience its not come anywhere near that.

Rated 2 out of 5 Faulty and missing features
Used this once yesterday, but when I went to use it again today, upon plugging it in, it blew the house RCD, not the ring, or even its own fuse, but the house, tried it again and it did it again, so its going back.
Also, if like me, you do some research on youtube etc, some of the features mentioned are NOT on this product, i.e. you CANNOT saute onions etc at the bottom before making the soup, also, you cannot remove the lid during the operation to add ingredients etc, if you do this, it will reset the timer.
I doubt i will get a replacement, I will get a better quality soup maker from elsewhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GladdyBee "Souperb" Soup maker!
I was encouraged by my sister to purchase this product, she has had one for a year. I wish I had bought it sooner. It is FANTASTIC, so simple to use. Pop in the ingredients and 21 or 28 minutes later perfect soup blended to your liking.
It is really easy to clean, looks good in the kitchen. I have made soup 4 times in the space of 10 days. Particular favourite Spicy Thai red lentil and coconut. I would encourage anyone considering buying this soupmaker - don't dither, just buy it. It's great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DebJasonD A real time & hassle saving device
Bought on a friends recommendation and wasn't disappointed, this soup maker saves time and effort and delivers fresh pipping hot soup in as little as 22 mins, it saves watching a pan, then blending, all you do is put ingredients in and choose chunky or smooth, its easy cleaned and doesn't look out of place on a kitchen bench(looks like a large kettle) It also make smoothies and milk shakes in 2 mins.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ChelleyPops Fantastic addition to any kitchen !
I was dubious about this product as couldn't quite work out the benefit....well let me tell you, after shoving in the chopped ingredients, the benefit is being able to walk away, get on with other duties and voila...21 minutes later I had a delicious soup ! It couldn't be easier to use and makes quite a decent amount - a good 5/6 bowls when the maximum amount is made.
The only downside is that the bottom of the jug was burnt after it's first use, however steeping this in some soapy water sorted it out. I would advise adding your liquids first before the veg to try and stop this from occurring.
Overall a wonder product, all hassle of having to stir, add ingredients at different times stay near the stove and then blend are eliminated with this little beauty - top kitchen gadget ! This will definately help me do more home cooking and take healthy soups to work every day :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by leanne2010 Great product for daily use.
This is one of the best small electrical item I have ever bought. So easy to use, easy to clean and makes the soup so quickly. Was so pleased with it that I bought one for my daughter as well. she rang to tell me how pleased she was with it too. Great for older people too as it makes sure as they eat less they get their five a day veg or fruit as a smoothie. Superb product .

Rated 5 out of 5 by Keri666 great buy
For a person who would rather die than consume a vegetable this soup maker has made it possible to tolerate the dreaded veg. It is a dream to use, quick, easy, no mess. fab soup ready to eat in 20min. The blender does a mush better job than the hand blender. I'm sure this machine is going to pay for itself in a short space of time. I took heed to some reviews re sticking, rubbed a bit of olive oil on the base before using, no sticking at all, just rinsed it out when finished. Not too big to leave sitting out and it also cuts out the after soup smell that you still get in the house the next day.(yuk). its a sealed unit so no lingering smells. I managed to get three bowls out of one carrott one parsnip, two small swedes and half a cup of lentils, it was well tasty. I love this item and Im sure it will miss the unused gadget cupboard. For anyone that is thinking what's wrong with a pot, buy it and you will see the difference.
