This maker can be cleaned by rinsing the jug and blades under a hot tap, and then wiping with a cloth. (Just be careful though as the blades are sharp)
When reading through the reviews, we noticed that a few people complained that the soup maker tripped their consumer unit. During the cooking process all soup makers draw a lot of power for a short period of time.
If there are other appliances plugged into the same circuit, such as irons, washing machines, kettles etc, then that circuit can get over loaded. When that happens the fuse will trip. To avoid that happening make sure only the soup maker is being used for the cooking period of about 20 minutes.
In most cases, these electricity trips are caused by old wiring and an old system and may be worth getting those checked by a qualified electrician.
One other tip we would offer here is if you have made a batch of soup, then let the soup maker cool down before making a second batch. That also helps avoid tripping your electric.
Thankfully there are only a few complaints about this issue, so the majority of buyers will never experience any problems.

Morphy Richard Brand
We think before you buy something from a company it is always a good idea to know a little something about the company. First of all Morphy Richards are a UK brand based in Swinton Meadows, Yorkshire, England and they were founded back in 1936.
Donal Morphy was an electrical engineer and Charles Richards was a salesman who combined their knowledge and started this now well known company.
In the early 1970s they joined with Hotpoint, GEC, English Electric and dominated the UK market for millions of household products. Almost every home in the UK would have had some form of appliance made by Morphy Richards, be that a toaster or an iron.
They are now owned by the Glenn Dimplex Group who are an Irish based consumer electrical good firm who acquired them in 1985. They have continued to produce household appliances and as you can imagine are up against plenty of competition in this market.
