Winter is almost upon us, there’s a chill in the air, and a desire for winter warmer cosy food! Homemade soup is always an all-time winner, with warm bread rolls spread with butter that melts and creates that delicious taste. But making soup from scratch can be such a faff, right? Well, we have the solution in the Morphy Richards Compact Soup Maker; the easy way to make soup with minimal mess and fuss. Read on to find out more.
The Morphy Richards Compact Soup Maker is so easy to use, creating great tasting soup in as little as 19 minutes. Designed with a compact footprint, it’s ideal for small households as it takes up little space unlike some bulky food blenders.
The interior of the jug has a super handy easy-release non-stick coating to aid cleaning afterwards, whilst the exterior has a stylish brushed stainless steel finish to make it look good whilst it creates mouthwatering soup. With a variety of features and functions which can be easily controlled using the simple button control panel on top of the lid, it also has an LED countdown to keep you updated on your creation’s progress. In addition to this, you can also create smoothies - how great is that?
The 1 litre capacity allows you to make 3 starter portions or 2 large portions of soup. We love the 4 settings that include smooth, chunky, drinks & manual blend, giving real versatility to your recipes. It even comes with a brilliant little recipe book - here’s one of our favourites which is so easy and tasty…
