Soup maker is a hybrid of an electric kettle and blender of different capacities, with the ability to chop ice. Almost every family has a blender, kettle and saucepan. Who may need a set of functions in one device ?
Soup maker can be an interesting acquisition for those who make their first steps in the culinary and who do not have time to cook, but want to eat healthy, tasty, varied and, most important, do not eat cold food.
Perhaps, Soup maker will attract an attention of young mothers. It does not need as much concern as the boiling pot on the stove: the liquid does not boil, the temperature is controlled automatically, and prepared meal does not run away. When it is ready the Soup maker will turn off itself.
Soup maker consists of two parts: a bowl with a heating element and a cover. Control panel may be on it. The panel may be also on the body. A knife for chopping foods can be on the bottom or lid of the device.
Its corpus is a stainless steel bowl with rubberized bottom, whereby Soup maker is almost impossible to budge without raising – as if it sticks to the countertop! The cover fits tightly, so steam practically escapes from the boiling spout.
There are three main functions in the unit: soup puree, not grated soup and … self-cleaning. The control panel is simple. Soup, soup puree and blender. You spend exactly 10 minutes on preparing vegetables, and the device makes the rest of the work itself during the next 30-35 minutes. The soup looks very impressive: it seems it is a restaurant dish. Besides, soups are prepared without oil and the stage of “frying” that a healthy diet fans will appreciate.
Do not put too much food in the bowl, pay attention to icons “min” and “max”. But even if there are too much products in the bowl, don`t worry about that. Soup or cocktail, or mashed potatoes never pour over the edge. Soup maker just will not turn on until the volume is not ideal.
It works great as a blender. Sauces, sweet cocktails, pancake batter, baby food, ice pick – the appliance makes it all in minutes. Blender is perfect for mashed potatoes as it grinds, not whips.
The recipe book is necessary. First you can cook just according to it, and then create your own dishes.
Soup maker is easy to care. The unit has self-cleaning function. Though you have to wash it yourself, it’s not as difficult as it happens with the multicast technique.
Despite that some of the dishes are recommended for five people, the soup maker copes with cooking dinner for 3-4 people.
Lets look attentively at some of them.
