RE: Which is the best soup maker?

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.

RE: Which is the best soup maker?

This thread has been most enlightening. I didn't even know that such a thing as a soup maker existed embarassed

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. 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.

This is also on amazon's website but gets a bad review, the cuisinart sounds like the best deal, four stars & 132 customer reviews.

RE: Which is the best soup maker?

Hi Bigboss,

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.

RE: Which is the best soup maker?

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. beauty, eh
