I'm a big fan of the kitchen gadget. Anything that can make my life easier when preparing meals for me & my family gets the thumbs up from me, particularly when it is something as clever as the VonShef Multifunctional Soup Maker from Domu. With a large 1.7L capacity & easy-clean jug, it can blend and cook your soup in under 30 minutes and can also be used as a Blender, Cooker, Soya Maker, Sauce Maker, Steamer, Boiler, Smoothie Maker, Reheater, and even an Egg Boiler.
Since giving my diet an overhaul at the beginning of the new year, I've been trying plenty of new recipes and eating a lot more fruit and vegetables. I've discovered a new love of smoothies and soups, which I generally avoided previously as I didn't like the texture, and so the opportunity to try out the soup maker came at the perfect time. One of my favourite smoothie recipes at the moment is spinach, kale, a tbsp 0% fat Greek yoghurt, and frozen berries (blueberries & raspberries are my favourite) with water.
In addition, my eldest has just had her new braces fitted and is currently having difficulty eating anything that isn't smooth or soft. I used the soup maker to whip up a batch of healthy & tasty home-made leek & potato soup which is in the fridge for her for when she needs it. I have also used the soup maker as an egg boiler and prepared her a tub of egg mayo to have on its own or with some small pasta shapes.
The soup maker comes with full instructions but is foolproof to use, including an alarm that sounds until the machine is set up correctly for the chosen program. The machine blends, pulses, boils/steams (up to four eggs at a time), & reheats as well as having the capacity to make chunky or smooth soup with preset timed programs. You can even use its cooking program to clean it! It's easy to care for, simply rinsing after use or wiping down with a damp cloth where needed and taking care not to immerse the jug in water.
