1. Hi I wonder if you can help, I have the Morphy Richards compact soup maker and thus far it’s brill, however I’ve noticed that when making some smooth soups such a creamy chicken or blended vegetable, the soup, though tasting great has a rather grainy texture, which I don’t like, any ideas please would be most appreciated.

    1. Hi Jean,

      I know what mean with the grainy texture, the only way around it that we have found is to get a hand held blender and mix the soup with that if making a smooth soup. I do not know if it is a design issue with the bender not been able to smooth the mixture but the smooth soups all come out like that so the only way we could get it properly smooth was with a hand blender, we generally just put it on chunky soup and then if we need to blend it use a hand blender. I know not an ideal solution but it is the best we have found, the soups do taste delicious that it cooks though 🙂

      Thanks for your comment!

  2. Best thing ive ever brought, love my soup maker really like the butternut squash coconut milk and chilli but always blend it after doing chunky

  4. Hello,
    I cant wait to purchase this soup maker already coming up with loads of recipes I’d like to try!!
    Just wondering, could I use this to make broths, such as chicken noodle broth and turkey broth
    And even would it make a ramen noodle broth???
    Many thanks,

    1. Hi Saskia,

      It can do all those but note it is a cheaper soup maker and we found it just was not big enough depending on how many you are making the broths for. So we have now upgraded to this one here:


      Just because we use it a lot and feed 5 people and it is working great, but if there is only a couple of people you are making soup/broth for then the Morphy Richards is great 🙂

  5. Hi
    Can you make any sort of deserts in a soup maker. Maybe rice pudding, custards that you make from (custard powder and milk) porridge also smoothies I think you can make.

    1. Hi Ann,

      We have not really explored the desserts yet but you can do pretty much anything in it where you can boil then blend, but the custard could burn quite easily on the bottom of the soup maker.

      We probably use it more for smoothies and we have done a few non soup recipes such as, chicken liver pate, macaroni cheese. Here is a link to our soup maker recipes and are newest ones are made with a ninja soup maker and our older recipes are made with the Morphy Richards soup maker:

  6. Hi, I have been enjoying soup making in the M R for about a year. Today I turned it on as usual and left the room. When I came back after 25 minutes or so the machine was beeping and all lights were flashing. I unplugged and tried again, same result. I took out some liquid, it was on the max line but this did not help. Any ideas?

    1. Hi Hilary,

      Sounds like you could have some water in element thats connects the top to the base of the soup maker. Try and dry the connections and try again. If that does not work then if in warranty take it back to the shop and let them have a look 🙂

  7. Do you have to put 1300 mls of water in as minimum as very thin. Also find when putting in lots of veg I then can’t put blended lid on What am I doing wrong please ?

    1. Hi Lizzie,

      I am not sure if that is the minimum you have to use, and we reduced the amount of water when using a lot of vegetables because they hold a lot of water depending on which vegetables you are cooking. Also yes if you fill above the max line the lid can be hard to put on, we used to spread the vegetables out and made sure there was space in the middle of the jug for the lid to sit securely 🙂
