Is a soup maker a good buy?
Yes, for all-in-one soup-making. Morphy Richards Total Control Soup Maker, 501020, (£109.99) does all the work, with settings for two, three or four portions of smooth, medium or chunky soup. You can sauté vegetables in the 1.6ltr jug first, or just pop them in diced. Add stock, secure the lid, and the soup will be ready in as little as 19 minutes. It also reheats or keeps soup warm, and can make smoothies or milkshakes, too. and will even save your five favourite recipes!
