    Well! How cold is the weather getting… This soup is a real winner. I do blend this soup for around 1 minute instead of 30 seconds I find you achieve even more of a velvety texture. Looking forward to banging out a huge assortment of soups with some homemade bread, love the one pot, chopping, cooking and blending.

    I love my Thermie!
