I have used other liquid chicken stocks in the past and have to say the massel chicken stock was one of the closest to home made I've tasted. It smelt and tasted of real chicken as it was heated on the stovetop and was not at all gritty. No evidence of a fat residue either. Would definitely buy in the future.
Expected stock to be watery but it wasnt it was vicious. I loved the taste and made the recipe I was using. The quality was excellent and the family loved the meal. I used to use the cubes but the liquid is now for me.
I used the Massel Liquid Stock to make risotto and found the quality to be fantastic. I often make my own stock but am very happy to use this product. It was easy to open and smelled great when heating. The finished product was creamy and delicious!
It's gluten free so I can have it. It packs a punch in flavour not too sweet and not too salty. Great colour and flavour. This was made in conjunction with the pumpkin, sage, feta and risotto recipe which I will be making again. This is my favourite brand of stocks and brought several to top up,the cupboard.
I had no idea that your Chicken Stock was meat free. The flavour was extraordinary. I usually use Massel Vegetarian Cubes for all my recipes that require stock, however, now that I have tried the chicken I will definitely be using this for future meals. I also love how it can be frozen if not all is used.
Massel stock made my risotto way better! it usually needs extra seasoning and herbs but the stock is that flavoursome that nothing else needs to be added. Defiantly recommend to others as it can be used for a vast range of dishes. 5 stars!!
I love this stock and it doesnt taste of additives like the others and the powder has too much yellow in it. this is fantastic and a time saver for soups and risottos
When buying a liquid stock I look for something that is going to enhance the flavour of the dish that I am cooking and not overpower it. That is exactly what Massel Liquid Stock did.
It was a light, well balanced stock that wasn't laden with salt as most stocks tend to be.
The box was easy to open and it was easy to store the leftovers in the door of the fridge.
I loved the fact that the stock was light in colour so it did not cause a colour change of the risotto that I was cooking.
The quality of the product was excellent, the liquid was clear and had no bits or pieces in it.
Definitely a stock I would gladly purchase again and again!
I have previously used the Massel branded powder for general stock requirements to add flavour to rice and cous-cous but I found that their liquid stock was superior in almost every respect. The flavour of the stock was light and well balanced much like a home made version, not too salty and not over powering like some other store bought brands. The packaging was well designed, with unused stock able to be stored for another meal (or the delicious recipe suggestions on the side).
The stock is also gluten free and free from animal products which is an important consideration when cooking for some members of my family.
I would happily purchase this product again.
