Note: cooking times above are for reference only.
The unit is very easy to operate. After pressing START/STOP, the indicators will flash, then you can select the cooking function you wish to use. Once selected, the soup maker will beep 1 time , indicating that the cooking process has started.
Making a smooth soup should take approximately 20 minutes, while chunky soups, porridge or soymilk will take approximately 30 minutes. When the cooking or blending is complete, the soup maker will beep for several seconds and the indicator lights will flash.
During the cooking process, if the indicator lights flash and the unit beeps continuously it is a signal that there is something wrong. If this occurs, please check the following:

  • Lid is not securely locked
  • No water inside the jug, setting off the dry sensor
  • Jug is not positioned correctly into the main body
  • Heating base/motor is overheating. Remove the jug from the motor housing and allow them both 5 minutes to cool down before replacing the jug
  • Water or liquid is above the MAXIMUM level, trigging the overflow sensor
  • Water or liquid is below the MINIMUM level, triggering the liquid safety sensor.


After pressing START/STOP, the unit will be in standby mode. Press and hold the PULSE button down to blend. Release the button and the unit will stop blending.
Pour water into the jug to a point between the WATER MIN and STEAM MAX marks on the jugs. Use the egg steamer to hold the food you are steaming. This operation should take approximately 15 minutes.

Pour water into the jug to a point between the WATER MIN and STEAM MAX marks on the jugs. Use the egg steamer to hold the food you are steaming. This operation should take approximately 15 minutes.
Making Soup
Chop all of your ingredients into approximately 2-3cm cubes and add to the soup maker jug.
CAUTION: it is not recommended to use uncooked meats in the soup maker. Any meat or fish used must be precooked. Do not add any frozen ingredients. All ingredients must be at room temperature.

  • Stainless steel filter (if being used): the filter will divide the inner jug into 2 sections. The section inside the filter makes smoothies, soymilk, porridge or mixes food, while the section outside the filter makes chunky food. The filter is best used to separate the food to be blended, which at the end will become a chunky soup.
  • If used without the filter in place, all food will be cooked and blended, which will result in a smooth/creamy soup.
  • To use the filter, lower it into the jug so that the bottom is held in place by the ring at the bottom. Ensure the filter touches the bottom securely, and it will then be locked into place by the jug cover.
  • Add your preferred liquid or stock into the jug. All liquids and stocks used must be at room temperature rather than warm or hot when put into the jug.
  • Make sure the total volume of ingredients added at least reaches the minimum mark, but does not exceed 1700ml, as the internal sensor near the base of the jug must be covered in liquid. Under filling the soup maker jug will result in the sensor being triggered and the unit failing to operate.
  • If during use the boiling action, the hot contents reach the lid, the upper sensor will be triggered, switching off the heating function to prevent boiling over.
  • WARNING: foods high in starch or sugar will burn easily, especially at the bottom of the jug.
  • The cooking function relies on uninterrupted operation. If the cooking sequence is interrupted at any point, the program will be cancelled and the blending/cooking will need to be repeated, which may affect the final results.
  • Any ingredients to be added during the cooking process can be added through the food chute in the centre of the lid. Do not unlock or remove the lid as this will stop the program.
  • To completely stop the cooking program at any time, simply press the START/STOP button. Otherwise, once finished, the soup maker will sound an audible alarm and will stop heating.
  • You soup can be poured straight from the jug. Take care when removing the lid from the jug, as it will be very hot and will release steam.


  • Previously prepared soup that has gone cold can be reheated in the soup maker. Simply set up the soup maker as previously described, then add the cooked soup to the jug, ensuring that the volume is between the minimum and maximum markings still.
  • Connect the soup maker to the mains power and press the START/STOP button. Ensure the lid is correctly locked, then press the REHEAT button.
  • The reheat program will follow this sequence: Heating – Mixing – Heating – Mixing -Heating. This process will continue until the soup is heated and has reached the optimum temperature of 65C – 75C, ready to serve. An audible alarm will then sound.
  • The time taken to complete the reheating process will depend on the temperature and volume of the soup added, but should take approximately 5-8 minutes.
    Note: the reheating process is not a cooking function. All soups used in this process must already be precooked.
  • The soup maker can also be used as a blender. Simply set up the soup maker as before and add your ingredients for blending. It is important that the ingredients reach a minimum depth of 3-4cm so that the safety cutoff sensor doesn’t activate. Do not fill the blender above the maximum marking.
  • Do NOT blend dry ingredients as the sensor will not recognize them.
  • Connect the soup maker to the mains power and press the START/STOP button. Make sure the lid is locked correctly, then press the blend button to start the BLEND program.
  • The blend cycle is a repeating 20-25 seconds of high speed blending, followed by a slight rest. To stop the cycle, press the BLEND button again, or press the START/STOP button.

Cleaning and Maintenance

  • Do not clean the soup maker in a dishwasher. Always disconnect the soup maker from the mains power supply before cleaning.
  • Do not immerse the soup maker in any water or liquids. Clean the surface of the base unit and outer surface of the jug with a soft, damp cloth. Rinse the lid in warm, soapy water.
  • To clean the inside of the jug, rinse to remove any remaining soup or food particles. Wipe away any food remains using a soft cloth and mild detergent before rinsing again.
  • CAUTION: the blades inside the jug are not removable and are very sharp. Extreme caution must be taken when cleaning the inside of the jug.

Automatic Cleaning System

You can use the blender itself to aid in the removal of stubborn stains. Simple assemble the soup maker as previously described, and add 800ml of water and a small amount of mild detergent. Fit the lid and switch the soup maker on. Press the BLEND or PULSE buttons and the blades will rotate to clean the jug. You can stop the cleaning process at any time by switching the appliance off. For extremely stubborn stains, you can repeat the above process but use the SOUP making functions to clean the jug.


Problem Solution
The unit is not  working and keeps beeping. 1.The jug is not fitted to the base correctly.
