Outstanding! I didn't bother to remove the tomato skins - just zapped them with the immersible blender. This is equal or better than any of the fancy, organic soups in those cartons. I used 2% evaporated milk and 3 Tblsp. of butter (not quite 1/4 cup). DH loved it, too.

It was OK. I didn't use V8 and instead googled its recipe and juiced celery, carrots, toms, ginger, apple, lemon, beet, oregano, half a bell pepper. I know its the healthiest soup I've ever eaten, but was a tad bit bland and pumpkin-colored. I think it needs more tomato, garlic and basil and less ginger. Also, perhaps because I didn't use V8 (which may add sweeteners) mine needed to be more sweet! Maybe my tomatoes (organic, imported - I live in Singapore) were less than ripe. But I definitely recommend the juicer if you're into home made soups.

Not all that easy to make but very good. It was kinda sweet but had a good flavor. My DW did not like the sweetness but 3 of us did. We used fresh hanover tomatoes and they make a excellent base. overall more liked it than not. The sweetness was the biggest factor as to how our guests liked it
