It's January, which means soup season is upon us and we can't say we're upset about it.
A bowl of warm soup is food for the soul, as well as the stomach, and makes for a comforting dinner, starter or quick lunch al-desko.
Why we rate it:
Let's face it, every winter we tell ourselves we'll make loads of yummy soups, only to do it once with our handheld blender, find it an absolute faff and call it a day.
Well, this affordable soup maker just may change that.
Whether you prefer smooth or chunky soups, the gadget has four built in functions: smooth, chunky, blend without heating and reheat/keep warm mode - so you can have a soup made to your exact tastes and specifications.
It can also hold up to 1.6 litres, making it perfect for the entire family. Plus, it's easy to clean which we all know is a massive bonus.
Want to use it all year round? The multifunctional gadget can even be used to whip up cold drinks, meaning it won't gather dust during the warmer months.
What the reviews say:
Last year, Aldi released the same soup maker, which sold out extremely quickly and there are almost 250 reviews that prove that the affordable gadget is a hit.
"This is absolutely the best buy I have made this year, it is so simple to use and once you’ve diced the ingredients takes 20 minutes to cook a delicious ready to eat fresh soup."
"My daughter had bought one of these soup makers and raved about it. So I took her recommendation and bought one and I can confirm what a good, simple gadget (it is) to use. Perfect soup every time and very easy to use. At this price it’s not really a risky buy."
"This is a very good soup maker and very easy to use. Just cut everything up very small, put it in the machine and cook it. It can be cooked smooth or left chunky but then at the end there is the extra option to blended a little more to you liking. The only thing I would suggest is that you fry off any onions first just to soften them."
"This is such a good appliance! Something I never knew I needed and now I can't stop using it!"
