Using the Soup Function (and Going Beyond Just Soup)
The convenience of the Soup function, with its creamy and chunky soup preset programs, really won us over. We found that we could create silky-smooth creamy soups with very little prep, and we love that we could simply pour them out of the glass pitcher and into our bowls. And the chunky function gave us a bit more control, which allowed us to push the limits of the blender to make curries, a stir-fry, chili, chunky soup bases, and even cook tiny meatballs in our soup. The blender basically heats, mixes, and stirs, and heats some more, rather than what happens when you make some soup on the stovetop by hand. Only here it happens with a touch of a button. At first, we were nervous watching soup boil in a glass blender, especially when parts of the cycle appeared to be aggressively mixing and boiling the ingredients at once. We watched this process unfold before us with great fascination as the weeks in the test kitchen went by. And we were impressed by both the quality and convenience of the recipes we could make. But there were a few tricks and hacks that we came to rely on to achieve the best results. Get them all in Sous Vide for Everybody.
