    A "Soup"er product!

    Posted .

    This heated blender by Cuisinart is genius! First of all, it still functions as a normal blender for cold blending. But, giving it a dual purpose to include soup and sauce making...well, who wouldn't want that!? I have been using my blender for almost a year now, so I have gone through all the seasons and used it for smoothies and soups. Now that the Fall season is officially back, I have already gotten back to making warm, savory soups, and my kids have been requesting their favorite hot chocolate. They no longer want the pre-packaged kind...they want it made in the Soup maker and blender using milk, cocoa powder, and chocolate chips. Sometimes I add a drop of peppermint, or orange extract to give it a different "twist"! Using this product for soup making is so simple. It has a "stir" function if you want a more chunky consistency. The soups come out perfect...and there are a lot of soup recipes out there, so the sky is the limit! It comes with a basic recipe book to get you started, but really, you can create your own with ease, once you get a feel for the ratio of liquid/veggies etc. that are needed. Soup is so good for you, and it's a way for me to get some veggies into my kids! Add some crusty bread or biscuits with it and you have a simple meal for your family! I have made cream of brocolli, creamy tomato-basil, carrot/curry, French onion, Asparagus, Potato...all have turned out delicious! It's kind of like the story from Stone Soup...you probably ALWAYS have things on hand in your pantry or in the fridge, in a pinch, to throw in and make a delicious soup. Give this a try...you won't be disappointed! Makes a great gift too!

    Its a great idea. Being able to make blend and heat soups and other dishes in one unit. Units such as the Thermomix and others have successgully done it for many years around the world. So when I noticed this 2013 product at Best Buy with a 3 year warranty I thought it was a safe bet. I was wrong. After 3 normal everyday uses of my machine it stopped blending. The motor in the blender does not appear to be powerful enough for the job it was intended to do. It struggled to blend from the moment I got it of the box. I am currently trying to get it fixed underwarranty. The Cuisinart warranty is not worth anything. They dodge and duck, hinder and avoid to ensure that it will cost you more in the end to get it fixed than the products worth.

    This machine is a beast!

    No Recipe book to help you use the the applicable dials and buttons. The manual explains the features but it would help if there were recipes to apply. Chops good for smoothies, I will test to see if it will make almond butter, cashew butter, However, it's difficult to clean the blades unless you remove from jar. The rubber gasket looks like it will take on mold after awhile, I will continue to check for that. I chopped garlic and the insides smelled until I allowed it to set in bleach and water. The drawback is that you can't immerse the jar in water to clean. Jar is heavy.

    Purchased it and thought it would be nice for making soup (that is what it is sold for). We had particularly bad luck. It is slower than a crock pot and will scorch thick soup also. Good ides but POOR design

    Wish it blended frozen fruit better

    Posted .

    After reading the great review in ShopSmart magazine, I thought I would give it a try. We made one of the soup recipes from the booklet enclosed with the blender. It was just average tasting. Then, I tried a sauce, same result. An immersion hand held blender would do the same job with less clean up. We love to make smoothies in our house, but I was disappointed that it took several attempts to completely liquefy the frozen strawberries or any other frozen fruit we tried out. I really had high hopes for this dual purpose blender, but may end up returning it.

    Great for Soups at this time of the year.

    The soup maker feature is really getting a workout around our house. It is amazing how quickly it churns out soup for my wife and I. There is a recipe booklet with it and it is nice but wayyyyyy too small. Need more soup recipes!

    Broken 1st Week

    Posted .

    This machine broke the first week during use. It sounded cheap, looks cheap, plastic gears and components. Disappointed with Cuisinart.
