Does anyone have any views on this? You would still have to do the time consuming bit ie prepare the vegetables so is it worth nearly £140?

Much as I like Cuisinart, I wouldn't pay £140 just to make soup. Have some cooking on the hob at the moment in an ordinary saucepan. Will have a look on Google to see what it does that is different to an orinary saucepan!

Sorry, but can't see the point. All you need is a pan and a wooden spoon.

hmm - got to say i'm not convinced either...

a saucepan and a stick blender would be a lot cheaper and take up a lot less worktop/cupboard space

Thanks for your replies. They reinforce what I was thinking - that the only benefit is that you have no washing up afterwards as it is self cleaning. I just wondered if I was missing something.

I do think it looks amazing, but I love to cook, so love to cook soup myself.

Maybe this is targeted at people who dont cook???

How much soup can you make in this machine. I make mega quantities for at least ten so don't think this would suit me. It seems an awful lot of money when a pan, spoon and Bamix (if needed) do the business. The dish washer does the rest. Foxy

I cook a lot, I have to as I suffer from IBS (Irritable bowel syndrome)& most ready made foods I cannot tolerate the junk they put in them,

Soup I eat a huge amount of, you can make 1.4ltrs in the soupmaker,

Having it has cut down on the washing up as before I would cook the soup in a saucepan then put it in a blender but now everything is done in one pot,
Wouldn't swap it now!

1.4 litres!!!! Its that all!

Gosh, I do about 4 litres at a time!!!!

We lurve soup!!!!!

Everything I use just gets bunged into the dishwasher (It only a saucepan and the liquidiser anyway)

I can see its a good gadget, but I just dont want something to do everything for me, I want to do it myself.

Well, we have been envious for YEARS of the US soup/sauce maker our friend has. It is a bit like Le Saucier, another gadget we love. These gadgets allow you to get on and do something else, the soup doesnt boil up when you take your eye off it, the sauce doesnt separate or catch on the bottom.

We have yet to actually put the SM into action, we shall see...

RE: Le Saucier, we have used for about 20-25 years, but it is in its second incarnation as the first went bust after about 15 yrs !!

The arguments against a SM are perfectly valid, if you want to make a lot, and you do not mind standing there stirring...

It is a bit like our ice-cream maker - who needs one, it can be done with the freezer and a fair bit of main d'oeuvre.

The soup maker is amazing, really amazing! Of course all one really needs is a pan and a stick blender but that's not the point for me. After all who "needs" a stick blender? How about using a sieve and the back of a wooden spoon? See - the point I'm making is if you can afford one comfortably do try it. It frys, stirs, fast boils, simmers and then blends (if you wish to blend it smooth). The blender is absolutely the strongest blender I have ever used. I have cheffed and the blender is unbelievable. It makes professional quality soups. And when all is done, pop some water out of the kettle into it, boil it in the maker and blend the hot water - done!

I have fallen in love with this machine and I see many sauces/currys/soups and gravies etc coming up.

soup maker....

True - however the way I see it is if you are able to make life easier why not? I'm an ex-chef and the ability to saute, stir, rapid boil, simmer, and blend all in one is just brilliant. The blender is also the strongest blender that I have ever used and that includes in professional kitchen too.

In reality all that any of really need is a chopping board, knife, sieve, pestle and mortar, and pans but gadgets that can make professional grade food easier to make are a good thing
