Scott and I have been eating this carrot ginger soup a lot in the past few months because it's quick and easy, loaded with nutrients, and seriously delicious. Making hot soup from raw ingredients is one of the easiest ways to get a nutritious meal on the table in very little time. We're both so busy, and this soup has been a last-minute lifesaver on more than one occasion this winter.
One of the most awesome features of the new Pro Line® Series blender is the dual-wall thermal jar that heats soup faster than any other machine. You can literally prepare this soup in less than 10 minutes, including the prep time. Just throw everything into the blender, select the soup setting, and the soup is piping hot in about 4 minutes!
One of the things I love about the insulated container is that while the contents of the container are piping hot, the jar remains cool to the touch on the outside, so it's so I think it's much safer than other high-speed containers. This is particularly useful when you're cooking with the kids.
The other issue I've had with some other high-speed blenders is the movement of the lid when I'm blending soup. The lid on the Pro Line® Series blender is completely reinforced so there's no warping or bending, and the lid sits completely secure on the container so there is no danger of it popping off while it's blending the hot soup.
Because of the heavy cast-iron base and special jar pad that holds the container snugly, the machine is completely stable with no movement when blending at high speeds. And you need the stability, because this is now the most powerful blender! This machine has the most power at the blade, and the friction of the blades spinning at such high speeds coupled with the dual-wall container allows the Pro Line® Series blender to heat soup faster than other high-speed blenders.
For those of you looking for an amazing holiday gift, you can get the new Pro Line® Series blender at Williams-Sonoma, Macy's, Bloomingdales, Bed Bath & Beyond, and Nebraska Furniture Mart in the USA; Myer and David Jones in Australia, and at Lakeland in the UK.
