Ten... Kitchen Gadget Treats
'Why didn't *I* get any soup?'
Cuisinart SSB1U soup maker
Looks like a blender, doesn’t it? But this does more than just mash-up fresh ingredients - it has an integrated heater which sautes, boils, heats and simmers them too. In other words, it makes perfect soup. Once the ingredients have cooked, the 500W motor mixes them together to make the soup while keeping the whole lot at your desired temperature. Its digital timer means you can set it and go off and do something else for the 20 minutes it takes to make the soup. Cuisinart says it’s easy to clean too, but let’s not get carried away.
