So, with the lid properly in place, a press on the “Smooth” button was all it took. It first heated and then in the last ten minutes or so of the half hour cycle, it blended several times. Noisily, but there’s not much to be done about that. Then it sounded a tone and the whole thing was complete.
Off with the lid, pour into soup bowls, accompany with stone baked bread. Yummy.
The main ingredients were potato, leek and onion. The resulting soup was perfectly smooth, with no little leek or onion bits. Not the slightest lump. Potato which has been insufficiently well cooked prior to blending can still retain a slightly course feel. This had clearly been very sufficiently well cooked. Perhaps the cream and butter assisted a little, but nonetheless it was silky on the tongue.
Much of making a soup is in ingredient preparation, and no automatic soup maker can help your there. (Yet!) But if you like soups and you have space in your kitchen, and especially if you don’t already have a decent blender, the Kambrook Soup 2 Simple Soup Maker could be just what you need.
