Can't say I found it difficult at all. You want to do it straight away as otherwise you get dried on soup / veg in various crevices, but I can't see how that would be different with any other product. If you do it straight away it'll be pretty clean just running hot water on it. There's only about four pieces to clean and one is the lid and one a thing that slots into it. Also, I'd be concerned if the other product was any bulkier than this as I consider this pretty large and bulky, but the comment may be absolute rather than relative.

Yes, I kind of replied without reading your actual post, which meant my response was somewhat more flippant than it would otherwise have been. For which apologies.
A friend has a Morphy Richards one and complained to them about it being impossible to clean or something.

This thread has been most enlightening. I didn't even know that such a thing as a soup maker existed
We use a big saucepan and a hand blender - not that taxing to be honest although best not to leave it unattended for too long which I guess is the beauty of the automatic type job.
I'm quite a big fan of soup although I don't like the very thick stuff. Mrs J makes a rather splendid Stilton and Broccoli version which is excellent with some crusty bread.
Let us know what you think BB when you finally get one.
Thanks BenLaw & JD! I'm now more inclined towards Cuisinart.
Have to decide by the weekend. Keep the suggestions coming!

This would be my choice you have the choice between chunky or smooth it also heats the soup wich is a bonus.
Thanks. It looks good, but I don't want the slow cooker. Is it sold without it?
Maybe but NOT that i can find.
Thanks. I'll look at it. It's still good value (& I can gift the rice cooker to someone else). Have you tried it?
I don't think I'll buy from Ideal world after reading these complaints. I'll see if anyone else sells it.
If you ever need a good Juicer, I'll ask Mrs. Cno, who is the resident expert..........can't answer your direct question though.
Sorry to hear about your Mother - in - law.

+1 for the Cuisinart , wife uses it constantly no complaints.
This is also on amazon's website but gets a bad review, the cuisinart sounds like the best deal, four stars & 132 customer reviews.

I bought the my mum the Cuisinart for Christmas. Its excellent and she loves it. Its also perfectly easy to disassemble and clean. Its more expensive than the others but has superior build quality and a 5 year warranty.
Watched abit of Gordan Ramsey on Christmas morning,he made his soup in a blender.....easy to clean aswell.

Thanks all! Will certainly look at my options. Interesting to see that the price of soup makers are at all time high, to cash in on fanatics with "healthy" new year resolution.
Morphy Richards 48822 soup maker dropped to £49.99 today (as I expected). It's less than half the price of Cuisinart with good reviews. I've ordered it, also got a £2.50 discount for NUS Extra card.
Nice one BB, hope your mother-in law recovers well.
Thanks GSB! Interestingly, the price of the soup maker went up to £50.39 after I ordered mine, & now it's back up to £59.99!
