A good product but massive design flaw
14 March 2018
I love using a soup maker, It saves a lot of time, and it's a lovely feeling to be able to chop some veg, plonk it all in and then 21 minutes later you have soup! I usually get around 4 generous portions which does me for the week, you can also freeze it if you make too much.
I have given 3 stars because although I am a fan of Morphy Richards and I love my soup maker, the design makes it somewhat stressful to use.
You can't submerge the unit in water- which is fair, and you have to make sure no water gets in the connection points. The main issue is that the lid which has the blade attached also has a connection point on top. Now when you've ,made the soup, and you take the lid off, there is a lot of condensation, so you have to have a cloth ready to try and stop any stray droplets from getting in the connection point. Sadly, I wasn't quick enough and i got a tiny bit of water in (seriously a tiny bit) and it broke, the machine would just cut out every couple of minutes after that.
Luckily I had a birthday a week later and I was gifted a replacement ( I am extremely careful now!)
Apart from the design flaw it is a good product, I wouldn't buy it at full price, usually the are discounted to around £40
