Cuisinart #SoupMaker Review and Competition

We were thrilled to be sent the Cuisinart Soup Maker Plus to review.  Hubbie has been eager to take homemade soup to work to save on buying expensive lunches every day but the effort required to make it had until now had put him off.  Well that soon changed when we were sent the Cuisinart Soup Maker to review.

So at the weekend we decided to attempt the Sweet Potato and Red Pepper soup following the easy to follow recipe booklet provided with the machine and we found it has never been so simple to make soup with this kitchen essential.  You can watch the little video to see how effortless it was:



Now as a family we can enjoy more wholesome nutritious meals prepared from scratch.  It really is that simple to use.  The boys even liked the taste of the soup and it was packed with flavour but also healthy ingredients that get us all eating better.  


We do tend to rely convenience products usually but I think that owning this product will definitely change that now.  I was very impressed with the Cuisinart it’s so versatile, you can use it to cook the ingredients and blend them, you do not need any extra pots so the kitchen stays quite clean and tidy!

It might be called the Soup Maker but it also makes curries, chutneys, jams, risottos, stock, smoothies or even cocktails!  I think every kitchen needs a Cuisinart because it really is quite a remarkable piece of kit.  In terms of cleaning it afterwards, hubbie was surprised with how trouble free a process that was, simply add warm water with a little washing up liquid, set to sauté and stir occasionally, this cleans the underneath of the blades effectively and the rest of the appliance.

The Soup Maker retails at £140, but its money very well spent.  I also have one of these to giveaway (yes I am spoiling you!), if you would like to enter please fill out the form below by the 16th of April.
