These appliances have several automatic cooking programs: chopping, making ordinary soup with chunks, porridge, nut milk or pureed soup. In many cases, depending on the dishes, the blender is switched on periodically during the cooking process: heat treatment and grinding or mixing go in parallel.

The device consists of several functional elements:
– a jug for adding ingredients with a cover on top;
– knives for grinding ingredients;
– base with display, control buttons, heating element and power cord.

The basic rules of operation of the blender and steamer are simple and intuitive.

If you just need to grind the product, the device is used as a regular blender, what is it for:
– Cut the ingredients into medium-sized pieces;
– Add all the ingredients to the jug;
– Press the power button and grind to the desired consistency.

If necessary, a device is used for cooking and steaming. It can work according to several preset programs in the temperature range from 40 to 100 degrees (boiling point). Usually the jug is equipped with an additional opening through which additional components can be loaded directly during cooking.

The total cooking time on average is up to 100 minutes, that is, a little more than 1.5 hours. This is quite enough for almost any soup, including meat. Basically, the device is used as a blender that cooks mashed soup. The components can be crushed immediately, during or at the end of cooking.
