Cuisinart Soup Maker Review By Fanfare Reviews


The Cuisinart Soup Maker is one of those rare products that comes along and makes you think…”Why has nobody done this before?”



The Cuisinart Soup Maker uniquely lets you do away with all other pots and pans, as all processes are carried out within the soup maker machine itself.

We had decided to purchase our cuisinart soup maker a week after we had taken delivery of our Panasonic breadmaker. The Panasonic makes such outstandingly delicious bread that we were keen to see if we could make our own equally delicious and healthy soup to go with it.

We had done our homework and learned that the Cuisinart Soup Maker is designed to be uniquely different to the traditional type of blender. This soup maker machine is the first to incorporate an integrated heater which makes soup making simple!

As soon as it arrived we set about reading about our new soup maker machine and how to use it.

Cuisinart SSB1U Soup Maker – Product Description

The Cuisinart Soup Maker was designed to to be robust enough to withstand continuous use in a professional kitchen environment.  The soup maker machine has a rapid heating element which means you get started in just seconds. The non-stick cooking plate boils liquids, browns vegetables and simmers soups, and if you are in a hurry, for some soup recipes the  Cuisinart soup maker can create your own fresh and healthy soup in as little as 20 minutes.

The integrated 1000Watt  heater lets you choose your setting – high, medium or low so that you can boil, sauté, simmer or re-heat fresh ingredients within the soup maker machine …resulting in the ultimate in healthy convenience cooking. With a non-stick base to prevent burning and sticking, and a stir function that ensures optimum frying and simmering, soup preparation just could not be made any simpler!

Add to this the features of heavy duty stainless steel blades and the powerful 500W motor, and you have a worktop appliance that is capable of blending the hot soup or sauce to your preferred consistency immediately after cooking is finished. You can also add ingredients as you go.

Cuisinart Soup Maker – Review Conclusion.

The Cuisinart SSB1U soup maker exceeded our expectations!  We selected 3 healthy soup recipes from the 43 recipes in the Recipe booklet;- Carrot & Coriander, Pea & Ham and Tomato & Basil. We really enjoyed all three, but we agreed that our favourite was the Tomato & Basil.

At this point we decided to try our own healthy soup recipes based upon what was seasonally available, supermarket offers, and what was left in the larder.  We enjoyed great success and that is how we continue to use and enjoy our Cuisinart Soup maker to this day.

The only drawback we found was that the soup maker machine was rather tall at 460mm height, which could preclude it from being positioned under the cupboards in some kitchens. However we feel this is a minor negative in the context of the overall experience of owning this unique appliance.

From our own tasting experience the quality of our home-made soup certainly exceeds shop bought varieties, and you may be surprised to learn costs much less too. This unique appliance has been a great addition to our kitchen and we continue to use it frequently. We would not want to go back to shop bought soup after using the Cuisinart Soup Maker!

So in conclusion we give the Cuisinart SSB1U Soup Maker a 5 out of 5 rating  

Rating: ★★★★★ 

We can thoroughly recommend that you purchase this product …BUY IT!
