Finding the best soup maker shouldn’t really be that difficult a task. Maybe 5 years ago but nowadays, there are just so many similar products available. So much so that you might end up spending a lot on a model that is inferior to a cheaper one. Nowadays, just because something is more costly doesn’t make it better when it comes to quality. Within this category, there are several models available for over £100 but there is a little gem that you can purchase for half of that amount and this is the Saute and Soup by Morphy Richards.
A little while back I was doing lots of research. Whilst trying to look for the best soup maker reviews, I came across review insider, where this Morphy Richards model had received top marks. To be honest, after initially coming across it, I saw high scores for it everywhere I checked. This is what helped me to make my decision and this is the reason that I’m writing this fairly detailed review.
The Detailed Review
So, we’ve all heard of Morphy Richards before and this company is actually famous for it’s line of soup makers. But the Saute and Soup is the latest and by far the best addition to this line. From far away, it’ll look no different to a kettle but look at it more closely and you’ll find out what this soup maker is all about. The design looks fairly nice and the combination of stainless steel and plastic is made in the most perfect manner. Remember, that this model will cost you around 50 quid so it’s not the most expensive model either. In fact, this should actually be affordable for most families.
When in use, you’ll have a choice of four settings to choose from and these include blend, juice, chunky and smooth. The earlier two indicate that you can use this to make smoothies and juices whilst the latter two are for making soups. By using the sauté option, you’ll be able to fry some of the ingredients just before you add the rest of the vegetables when making soup. I must admit, this feature has been excellent because you can fry all sorts of things like meats and even vegetables like onions. If this option wasn’t built into this model, you would’ve been doing this on the frying pan. This means that the sauté setting makes things a lot easier for you.
Once you’ve got all of your ingredients placed inside, you can decide whether you want the consistency to be smooth or chunky. Sometimes, the chunky setting can make the consistency a bit too thick. If you experience this, you can easily blend the soup a bit further in order to smoothen out the consistency. If the blend function isn’t operating at the time, you can keep on adding ingredients. The best part in all of this is that the soup usually takes around 20 minutes to make it ready to eat. Obviously, you need to let this cool unless you want to burn your tongue!!
In my opinion, the sauté function in addition to the rest of the features makes this model by far the best soup maker available right now. I’ve compared it to several other models and none have come as close to this. On top of this, it’s quite cheap so not many people will have a problem in being able to afford it. The only thing I will probably advise you to do is to keep reading the reviews for this product and find out as much as you can. Once you’ve gathered all of this information, you can compare it to the reviews of the other models too. Obviously, I’ve done this and the Morphy Richards Saute and Soup was still by far the best but you can go through the same process just for your own content.
