Can’t fault it!
I’d never had a soup maker before. I got tired of the mess and inconvenience of using the saucepan and then transferring to and from the blender. I had to do this in batches as my blender couldn’t cope. I saw the Kambrook Soup 2 Simple and thought surely this must be easier. Well..it certainly was! My soup is cooked and smoothed to perfection. I do start my onions off in a pan first as I prefer to do this, but most ingredients are just thrown in and the device switched to the desired setting. The noise level is no greater than my previou...s blender, in fact my cat was mesmerised every time it started to blend! The jug component has a wide opening allowing easy removal of the finished product, but be aware that this is metal it does get hot to the touch during the cooking process. It’s quick and very easy to clean. What a great product at a great price and with a 2 year warranty. If it’s as well built as the Kambrook steamer we bought 7 years ago, and is still going strong, then I’ll be very happy.
Fell in love with this soup maker
This makes amazing soups and I have made many versions of soup and some following recipes and some through trails of left over veges in my refridgarator. It's has three major modes to make the soups and it has good vacuum legs so that the soup maker doesn't move at all while churning the ingredients. I have used this very often and found it easy to maintain and used to clean the jar straight away. very useful for the long winter months and rain days when u have those funny hungry cravings .you can make very healthy creamy soups without using cream as churning is so perfect it makes the flavours standout so well.hughly recommend in getting one
Easy and Dependable describes the Kambrook Soup2Simple!
I just love my soup and made it for years in a big pot and blended with a stick mixer. But then Soup Makers changed everything. I have endured the excellent results but shockingly poor quality of the TV advertised one and its replacements (2) under warranty, then the leaky seal of the Tefal Soup and Co. ( see comment in Q&A) below, nevertheless I was sold on the easy to use concept and kept researching for my next.
I settled on replacing with this latest model from Kambrook because of its 2-year warranty. But this has far surpassed my expect...ations. No, it has no "countdown", "reheat" or "keep warm" or "Steam with an Insert Basket" functions...But it cooks my vegetable etc soup perfectly every time, stays hot waiting to be served, and remains hot for a "seconds" serve. The wider based SS jug is easy to clean around the blades and can be soaked in hot water a few mins if not done straight away. Forgotten ingredients eg extra flavourings can be added through a separate mini lid after the program has been set. So far nothing has burnt, or frothed out. It has min/max load safety switches and can be used for cold smoothies. Until summer/Dec it was used 5x /week, with perfect results and no hiccups. Now the cool weather has approached I am easing back into it. It is so simple, I didn't even need to get out the instruction booklet. Maybe its only drawback is its volume for a larger family or gathering. It is fine for 3 large serves. Oh and the previous review mentioned noise? Yes its noisy, it is a blender. The thing is you press and "forget"... until at about 10 mins it does its first blend..but you soon get to learn to predict and be prepared for it after repeated use. It is not unusually noisy compared to the electric blenders/processors and mixers that I've used. But dont have your back to it initially as it certainly can startle you!!!
Noisiest unit imaginable
Bought this model and it does make excellent soup but ......... when it starts up the kids, dog, cat and the birds all flee the house due the incredible noise!
Similar to a cement mixer or chain saw you don’t even want to be near it while it mashes up the ingredients!
The end result is first class but suggest you use the garage to be out of hearing range!
How could anybody build something as noisy as this?
Questions & Answers
My soup maker won’t start. The lights come on flashing. It beeps once. Then beeps again and won’t turn on. HELLLLP
Either a component has failed or user error... hopefully option 2! Need more information. How old ? Have you been using it successfully so far ? Was it ready to cook when it failed? Sensors will operate if overfilled or insufficient liquid or missing the lid or not connected to base correctly.. I would empty the soup maker contents and start again making sure that liquid and food does not exceed max fill mark. Place the lids on and reset.
Are the blades in the base or attached to the lid?
Blades are in the (non stick coated) base. The jug is not immersible. But I love it. It is noisy but so was the Tefal soup and Co. at 3x the $ before its seal began to leak. I replaced it with this Kambrook model as it was cheaper than fixing at Tefal Parts and Service agent, and it had 2 yr warranty! It does not have a warm or reheat function but soup stays very hot in the SS jug!
