Top 10 Best Soup Maker Machines

There is nothing like nice warm soup as a starter to your meal. The typical way of preparing your favourite soup would be to chop and cook your ingredients in a saucepan then use a hand-held blender and pray hope that the hot soup doesn’t splatter. Then you have these soup maker machines.

MorphyRichards501011SauteSoup2These soup making machines however, has both the blender and heating elements built-in, to blend and cook your soup, all-in-one minus the splatter. Simply prepare and add your ingredients from scratch and have your home made soup in minutes.

You can do this in three easy steps. Prepare and chop your ingredients according to your recipe and place them in the soup maker. You then choose either the smooth or chunky setting depending on your taste. This feature is available on some machines only. It then chops your ingredients accordingly. When ready, add stock or water then continue to cook your soup in the soup maker.


MorphyRichards501011SauteSoup3Some machines does it the other way round, it will cook your ingredients in the stock and when ready, use the blender function to finish preparing your soup just the way you like it. You can probably tell now, there are two different types of soup maker (not including the hand blender). There is the blender style soup maker which is simply a blender with heating elements built to the bottom of the removable blender jug.

The other type of soup maker is the kettle style soup maker which as suggested, shapes like a big electric kettle with heating elements at the bottom of the cooking pan and a suspended blade attached to the cover. When shut, the spinning arm rotates the blades near the center of the jug unlike the blender style soup maker that has its blades at the bottom.

Remember, a good soup maker machine also lets you decide if you want you soup smooth or chunky and lets you saute the ingredients before adding the stock. An even better soup maker comes with keep warm function and insulated jug that keeps the soup warm for longer.
