Homemade soup your way
We’ve designed your Soup Maker so that it’s
even easier and quicker to make homemade soup
to your own individual taste, with the minimum of
fuss. All you have to do is place the ingredients
needed for your favourite recipe inside your Soup
Maker. Then it’s as simple as selecting either the
smooth or chunky soup setting, depending on
your preference, and then waiting a few minutes
for your Soup Maker to blend and gently cook the
ingredients for perfectly delicious homemade
soup. It really couldn’t get any simpler!
Using your Soup Maker
Your Soup Maker has 2 settings to make 1litre of
either smooth or chunky soup. There is also a
separate manual blend function.
Select your choice of programme:
Smoothly does it...
The smooth soup programme (8) is perfect for
delicious soup recipes requiring a smooth
consistency, like Roast Plumb & Tomato soup. The
programme ensures the ingredients are blended
to the right consistency, and gently cooked at the
right temperature. The programme lasts for 15
minutes, before the soup is ready to serve &
Get chunky!
The chunky soup programme (9) is perfect for
rustic soup recipes requiring a chunkier
consistency, like Winter Lamb & Lentil Broth. The
programme ensures the ingredients are heated
for longer to ensure the chunky ingredients are
fully cooked. The programme lasts for 25 minutes,
before the soup is ready to serve & enjoy! For
chunky soup there is no blending process, just
heating. It is therefore recommended that you cut
any vegetables into small dice sized pieces.
The benefits of
homemade soup
Because homemade soup tastes so great, costs
so little, and is so good for you, it’s really hard to
fault it!
Scratch it!
Scratch cooking is the best way to prepare
healthy, wholesome food that the whole family
loves. It gives you complete control over the food
you eat, because it involves cooking from the
most basic ingredients and helps you to avoid all
the preservatives, flavourings, and other nasties
found in processed foods.
Batch it!
Batch cooking is great because it allows you to
cook up a batch of wholesome food, and pack it
away in meal-sized portions that can be refrigerated or frozen, locking away all the taste and
nutrients ready to enjoy later in the week.
Don’t waste it!
In the UK we waste up to 8.3 million tonnes of
food every year, most of which could have been
eaten. Whether its forgotten chicken from Sunday
lunch, or a lonely tomato tucked away at the back
of the fridge, you can always rustle-up a fantastic
homemade soup recipe using the leftover food
loitering around your kitchen that would normally
go to waste.
Soup Nutrition
A perfect blend!
Homemade soup couldn’t be better for you, and
depending on the recipe, can provide a full range
of health-giving nutrients including vitamins,
minerals, carbohydrate and fibre. But best of all,
homemade soup is simply delicious! For an extra
vitamin and mineral boost with added fibre, why
not include locally-sourced, fresh seasonal
vegetables? You can even supercharge your soup
with slow-release carbohydrates by including
pre-cooked whole-wheat pasta pieces in the
Allows you to further-blend the soup to your
desired consistency, if required. This function
works without additional heating of the soup.
What makes your soup
maker so special?
Food doesn’t get much better than fresh,
homemade soup. But it can be complicated and
time-consuming, especially when you’re juggling
the demands of a busy life. That’s where your
Morphy Richards Soup Maker comes into its own!
48821_Layout 1 05/11/2010 15:11 Page 5
Works in a flash!
Making fresh homemade soup in the comfort of
your own kitchen couldn’t be quicker when using
your Soup Maker. All you have to do is prepare
your selected ingredients, transfer them into your
Soup Maker, and select your required style of
soup – smooth or chunky. The smooth soup
programme blends and gently cooks the soup in
15 minutes. The chunky soup programme takes
just 25 minutes before it’s ready to enjoy!
Keeping it simple
At Morphy Richards, we believe life shouldn’t be
complicated. That’s why we’ve worked hard to
make your Soup Maker as easy to use as
possible. It really couldn’t be simpler. All you have
to do is select your desired programme with one
press of a button, and then walk away. In as little
as 15 minutes you’ve got perfectly delicious
homemade soup, cooked your way.
Space Saver
We know that space is a valuable commodity in
your kitchen, and the last thing you need is an
oversized appliance cluttering your worktop. Your
Soup Maker is a compact size with a simple
design so it fits easily on any worktop space. It is
even small enough to fit away into the smallest of
cupboards when you’re not using it.
Any Questions?
If you have any burning questions about the use
of your Soup Maker, check the list below where
we have answered some of the more common
frequently-asked-questions (FAQ’s). If you have a
question not covered here, please feel free to
contact our Helpline: 0844 871 0960.
Does the heating function work when I
remove the lid?
No. Removing the lid cuts the power to the unit
for maximum safety. The heating function only
activates when you have placed on the lid and
selected either smooth or chunky soup
Can I remove the lid mid-cycle?
Yes, but the power will be immediately cut to the
blending blade for your safety. Power will also be
cut to the control panel, so you will need to start
the programme again from the beginning, after
replacing the lid.
Can I use my Soup Maker to make
anything other than soup?
Yes. Your soup maker can be used to make a
range of fondu’s, sauces, and even milk shakes.
Also, join us online on Facebook or Twitter for
more inspiration.
A dream to clean
Can I use uncooked meat in soup recipes
made in my Soup Maker?
The Soup Maker is not dishwasher safe, but it is
simple and easy to clean. After use, simply run
the orange section of the lid incorporating the
blending blade under warm water, and wipe with
a sponge. The inside of the Soup Maker base can
also be cleaned with warm soapy water and a
sponge. If food is burned on, allow to soak, then
wipe away with a sponge. Wipe the outside of the
appliance with a soft, dry cloth.
You should first cook meat separately before
transferring into your Soup Maker with additional
ingredients from your recipe, as the Soup Maker
is only designed to gently heat the soup.
Certain food types can burn if in contact with the
base heating element. If this happens, fill the
Soup Maker with hot soapy water and allow to
soak for 15 minutes. Any burnt on food can then
easily be removed with a coarse sponge cleaning
pad. Do not use a metal scouring pad as this will
scratch the base.
After cleaning, please dry all parts thoroughly.
WARNING: DO NOT immerse the lid or jug in
water, as this contains electrical components
that can be damaged by water. Do not allow
water to get onto the electrical connections. Dry
thoroughly before use.
What is the capacity of my Soup Maker?
The capacity of your Soup Maker is 1litre. This is
marked on the inside and outside of the base.
Ensure you do not fill your Soup Maker above this
line, otherwise the overfill detector will cut the
power to the blending blade. If this happens,
simply remove some of your ingredients so the 1
litre fill mark is not exceeded, and wipe clean the
overfill detector on the lid (5). Also ensure your ingredients (including liquid) are above the 0.8L line.
Failure to do this will impair the blending function.
Can I change the times on the smooth and
chunky soup settings?
No. The times for these settings are preset, and
should be adequate to make soup in the way
recommended in this guide.
48821_Layout 1 05/11/2010 15:11 Page 6
Can I make cold soups like Gazpacho in
my Soup Maker?
Yes, but you will first need to cook the soup using
either the chunky or smooth soup setting. Then
simply allow to cool or refrigerate before enjoying.
What if my Soup Maker stops working?
Your Soup Maker is fitted with a safety
thermostat, which cuts the power and stops the
product from working to prevent overheating if it
is used continuously on 3 or more cycles. If this
happens, remove any food from the jug, and allow
the Soup Maker to cool for 30 minutes. It should
now work correctly, and you can continue making
your soup.
If the blend function is used continuously for
more than 20 seconds a safety cut out will cut the
power to prevent overheating. When this happens
wait for 10 seconds before reusing the blend
What if food burns on the base of my
Soup Maker?
Due to the starch and sugars present in some
foods, a slight burning may occur if they are
placed in direct contact with the inside base of
the jug. To prevent this, add half a cupful of water
or stock to the Soup Maker before placing in any
solid ingredients. Then top up with the remaining
liquid specified in your recipe.
