With an RRP of £79.99, the Tefal Easy Soup may seem like an expensive appliance to buy simply for making soup, but thanks to four automated cooking programs, it can also be used to create smoothies, compotes and sauces.
As well as automatic cooking, there is an easy cleaning program that aims to reduce your washing up, but how do the soups it produces compare to those made in the classic way?

Tefal Easy Soup: how easy is it?
This soup maker has been designed with simplicity in mind. It takes just two buttons to start the program you choose, and will beep to let you know when it's finished.
Its four cooking programs include 'smooth', 'chunky', 'compote' and 'blend', so it can be used to create a range of dishes, drinks and accompaniments. It has a keep-warm function, which aims to simmer your soup at the optimum serving temperature for up to 40 minutes after it's finished cooking.
For added inspiration, the Tefal Easy Soup comes with a recipe book, which has 30 different soup, smoothie and dessert recipes to get you started.
