As this is a gift set, the first question will be `is it useful'? As a gift for a kitchen, this set looks (and so far acts) the part. Not only would it be useful as a Christmas gift for a cook, it also comes with everything needed to make soup for two, making it an ideal house warming gift or a wedding gift. My partner mentioned that it seems a little big for her hands, and it doesn't have a rubber grip, so something to be aware of. I've used it a couple of times for blending curry sauces, and its perfect for that.

The next question will be `does it look cheap?' It certainly does not. Forget the cheap plastic hand benders you can get, this one is much bigger, with the lower part made of stainless steel. It feels very substantial, and actually looks like something you would find in a pro chefs kitchen. Without being (too) mercenary, the set looks like it costs more than it actually does (disclaimer: I am a bloke).

One thing that I don't know so far is how long it will last. Some hand blenders have a tendency to go pop (my last one went up in smoke, although it wasn't a Breville), so I will update this review if anything untoward happens.
So far so good, so five stars for a great looking gift idea.

The Breville VHB020 is an excellent addition to my kitchen. I'm addicted to making soups as the blender makes it so easy. It doesn't take too long to blend my ingredients to the perfect consistency. The blender comes as part of a set, the soup bowls are brilliant as they are deep so you can have a generous portion. I've tried several recipes from the book and I'm itching to try several more. The set would make an ideal gift for any domestic goddess. The only reason I haven't rated it with 5 stars is because I've found you need to ensure you don't blend a small portion of ingredients as they will end all over your kitchen. Overall I think it's a fantastic product, which I'm getting a lot of use out of.

The Breville Simple Soups Blender Gift Set is a perfect present containing high quality and useful items. Firstly it contains a multi-functional hand blender which is fantastic for blending smooth soups as well as fruit for smoothies and ice cream. It also contains two large sturdy and stylish red and cream bowls and a large stainless steel ladle which is a great size for serving. Finally the set contains a Good Food Soup Recipe Book which on first glance contains chunky vegetable soups which don't require the use of a blender. However on closer inspection there are some useful recipes including the delicious Provencal Tomato Soup. Each item in this set is perfect for making soup but will also be useful for other culinary tasks and thus it's a perfect wedding or housewarming present.

The gift box includes the blender, 2 chunky good sized bowls, a nice quality ladle and a BBC Good Food Soup cookbook including 60 recipes.

The cookbook is the similar to the books in the 101 Recipes series (but with less recipes) and has a recipe on the left hand page and a nice colour photograph on the right hand side. Photographs are excellent and very enticing! Interestingly, not many of the recipes actually require a blender! Those that do, well this blender is very solidly made and is weighty in the hand. There are two speed settings and a metal loop at the top for hanging the blender if you wish.

The bowls are chunky and well made with a deep red exterior and a cream interior. They are generously sized and hold a really good portion of soup. The ladle is also well made. All in all this is a good quality set with all items well made.

I'd recommend this as a nice gift set for the novice cook who wants to start with something simple or the more experienced cook - the recipe book has a wide range of soups with something very simple through to more complex soups. It would also make a nice wedding gift.

It's sweet potato and lentil soup on the menu for lunch today!

It is a good idea the way that this gift set has been put together: everything you need to make soup all in one package (obviously apart from ingredients). The BBC book that is included is a very important part of the set and I felt that would be the make or break aspect so I was happy to see that it included a great variety of soup recipes - ranging from oriental chicken and sweetcorn soup to classics like vegetable soups and carrot and coriander soup. The book includes many recipes that a reader would be looking for and expecting as well as others that may not have been on your mind but never the less look appealing. A clear colour photograph is included for every recipe so you can easily tell whether you would like to make it or not. The bowls included are nice and heavy, so they look good quality and not too cheap, they are also a generous size. The hand blender and ladle are also good quality and well made. This set would make an ideal present for any soup lover, and it is something a bit different and more imaginative than many of the presents people select when they can't think what to get, so it would look more thoughtful. Alternatively its a nice present for yourself if you feel like some tasty soups to warm yourself up in the cold weather.
