WOW! Did it work fast to make the soup super smooth! The kids ate their soup faster and with less complaints, and Jim and I liked the smooth texture. It almost feels like I poured it out of a can or box! (Now wouldn't that be an SCDer's dream come true?) ;-)
The only thing to watch out for is that you need to keep the blender part submerged in the soup, almost near the bottom, to avoid a big mess! But honestly, even if I made a mess it still just might be worth the smooth product and ease of use. I can already see myself using it in sauces, and any other soup that requires pouring it into the blender after it has been cooked.
