I bought a Soup Maker from a woman representative from this company at a home show this past year and must say my husband and I love it. We both work full time and can have some crazy working hours. This soup maker has come in super handy for quick meals and also times where we have little amounts of many ingredients (and leftovers) and want to use them up. Super easy and couldn't be happier. Does what it is supposed to do and what the sales woman told me it would. Recommend!
