An immersion blender will make soup thickening creamed soups and puree s a snap. Its highly convenient and is less messy to clean up though the upright blender wins hands down for overall performance. We love the immersion blender because it minimizes messes and reduces the handling of hot soup. We highly recommend an immersion blender with variable speeds powerful motor stainless steel blending attachments and of course a splash guard. Dutch Oven Enamel Coated Cast Iron : Some of the most amazing soups you ll ever make will come from your dutch oven. There are two types of dutch ovens we recommend. First a high quality enamel coated cast iron dutch oven. Le Creuset is wildly popular for justifiable reason. It cooks evenly and hot without scorching your food and the enamel coating allows for an easy clean up.
We found that after you identify strainers of reasonable quality the key features to look for are ease of use solid handles and durable production. When you re handling hot liquid the perfect strainer will make your work safer and easier and of course the end result perfect. Blender: For cream soups and bisques you want the smoothest texture possible. To accomplish this we highly recommend a good quality upright blender. Be attentive to selecting a blender that is well made has good capacity and has internal raised ridges that guide the contents back down to the blades. When selecting the perfect soup-making blender you ll want strong power a good capacity blender jar with guiding flutes. You ll pay more for all the electronic options and speed choices - which won t add much if any advantage to your soup cooking efforts. We look for power durability and a 40 to 48 oz. jar capacity. Immersion Blender : The perfect companion to the food processor and a required soup maker s tool is a top quality immersion blender.

It may not be possible to keep fresh soup stock handy so use the best quality packaged stocks possible as a back up. Food Processor: Some soups and stews require the power of a great food processor. We ve heard from many die hard soup aficionados that they enjoy the dicing chopping and mincing with their chef knife. However there are times that a powerful food processor will cut your prep time and provide all the power work needed. Be sure to select one with reasonable volume capacity and the power to chop anything you ll need. We do not recommend a food processor for creaming your soups only prepping ingredients. Hot liquid will tend to leak out beneath the blade and the capacity of the processor is typically not sufficient for larger recipes requiring multiple batches. Soup Tureen: It would be a shame to create masterpiece soups and neglectfully serve them in ordinary serving bowls or pots. There s an elegance to serving your soup in a high quality soup tureen.
