This soup and smoothie maker from Morphy Richards is, like their other models, amongst the highest rated soup makers available in the UK today.
At around £68 the 501015 soup and smoothie maker is one of the most expensive models at present. With an average price range for soup makers from £50 - £60 so the 501015 puts itself to the top end of that range.
It sells on a consistent basis. As usual has the stylish Morphy Richards look, and in this case with a classy trim in red. It has a good number of buyer reviews online and has achieved and maintained a very good rating of 90% buyer Satisfaction from actual buyers.
That is a high rating and reached over a fairly brief period of time since introduction in June 2015.

Almost 70 % of buyers gave the model a full 5 star rating and were very satisfied with their product. For this Morphy Richards model there was one buyer who left a 1 star rating.
He had the same problem as some who bought other Morphy Richards Soup Makers in that after a short time their machines simply stopped working, so asked for a refund.
As stated elsewhere considering the number of 5 star ratings this would seem to be a very minor issue, but it’s something the makers would really need to look at.
As with the rest of the range, this soup maker that can make up to 1.6 litre capacity. That is suitable for making enough soup for up to four servings. It does not though have the additional functions like sauté and pause which are available on the 501014 putting it at a slight disadvantage. But it is red

Since first getting my soup maker 3 weeks ago I can honestly say it has been used 5 days out of 7 – and that’s without my wife getting a look in!I am a big lover of soup but was always put off by the thought of standing over a pan bubbling away on the stove with food sticking to the pan etc etc – but this soup maker means making soup is an absolute breeze!
