Soups are a great way to condense a lot of great ingredients into one complete meal. They are healthy and filling and don’t require a lot of cooking expertise to make them. However, one of the biggest downsides of them is how messy they can be when you make them from scratch. This is particularly true if you are blending it down into a nice purée consistency. As you will know if you have ever made soup before, even if you try your very best to be careful and keep mess to a minimum, there will usually be slops here there and quite possibly everywhere.
Even if you don’t make a mess everywhere, there is often a lot of switching between different containers, pots and accessories such as blenders. Making a soup just seems to create a lot of messy washing up that you will have to sort out.
That was until the recent addition to the blender market of what are known as soup makers or soup blenders. In this particular review we will look at the Salter Electric Soup Maker.
Salter originally started life as a company manufacturing and selling domestic-aimed weighing scales. The company was established in 1760 in Bilston a small village in England. The business originally involved Richard Salter, who was by trade a spring maker, producing pocket steelyards, a similar device to fisherman’s scales that are used nowadays. From then onwards, Salter produced a wide array of different scales for people of all walks of life, including the very first domestic bathroom scales. It then thrived through from 1900 to 1950 and was bought by Staveley Industries and was split into different subsidiaries and continued to grow and expand to the company they are today.
Quick And Easy Soup At Touch Of A Button
It is really as easy as it sounds. The soup maker comes with a 1300 to 1600 ml stainless steel jug that you put all of your ingredients in to make your soup. You then have three different choices with regards to the thickness of soup – blend, chunky or purée. So whether you like a smooth and thick soup or like one with lots of different textures and chunks of meat and vegetables, you will be able to get your soup just right with this machine.
Because of it’s design, it is also promised that it will take no more than 20 to 30 minutes to make your soup. Gone, therefore, are the days of standing over a hot stove and stirring at your broth for several hours.
Less Mess And Hassle
As noted before, one of the pains of making soup from scratch is the amount of mess and washing up it can generate. With the Salter Electric Soup Maker though, this mess and hassle is a thing of a past. Not only can you just put everything into the same pot, but when the soup has finished and you are ready to serve up, you only have to use the stainless steel jug with its pouring lip to pour it into bowls, reducing the chances of it spilling it everywhere.
Additionally, as it has an intelligent control system, there is no chance of overspilling and dry burning occurring during the soup making process. Simply chop ingredients up, add them to the soup maker, turn the machine on and wait 20 to 30 minutes. It really is as simple as that.
When it comes to cleaning the appliance, you simple detach the jug from the rest of the unit and wash it up in the same way you do other dishes.
It is wise not to just take our word for it, which is why you should look at online and impartial reviews like those found at Amazon.
