Morphy Richards Soup Maker Reviews

By  Enda McLarnon

Thanks for taking your time to read our reviews on the range of Morphy Richards soup makers. They make a number of different models that all have slightly different features.

Below we review and compare the 10 soup maker models that are currently available on the UK market. Their 501014 model is their best selling model right now. This is because it has the sauté feature which buyers really like as it adds great flavour. It can also be used as a smoothie maker, to make juices and drinks so great for all year use.

The average capacity of a soup maker is 1.6 litres which is enough soup for 4 full servings or 6 lunch size servings.

There is a smaller 1 litre size such as the 501021 model which is a better choice for someone living alone or for a couple.

Current Best Seller - Morphy Richards Saute and Soup Maker 501014

This one probably is the best choice of all for a number of reasons.

The price is really good with an average price of around £70, but is usually cheaper online. You also get the sauté function, which we think all modern soup makers should now have as standard.

It has the usual 4 settings to make a wide range of soups and it also has the all important pause function should you wish to add other ingredients or seasoning during the cooking process.

You can also make milk shakes with this one and for us this model is hands down the best Morphy Richard's model of them all.

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.

As you can see Morphy Richards has a nice range of soup makers. For us having a sauté function is a must for getting the very best flavours. We also have found the pause function to be invaluable.

Often we may forget to add an ingredient such as garlic or a pinch of something. Being able to pause the cooking process and add this is we think very important.
