    Default Does anyone have a thermomix and if so do you use it regularly like everyday?

    Hey does anyone have a thermomix and if so do you use it regularly like everyday?

    I've recently been to a thermomix party and I fell in love with it, but not the price tag, so we're umming and arrrring about it as I don't want to get it and then not use it, I love cooking and baking so I'm sure it will get plenty of use but.......

    .....I'm not 100% sure so if anyone has any ideas/thoughts/experience etc with one I'd love to hear from you

    Thanks

    My mil has one, had it for about 4 months. We go there for dinner 2 times a week now and did about once a week for the first 2 months they had it. We have eaten food made in it twice! Maybe they only use it the nights we are not there? Honestly I think they may use it once or twice a week and that's being generous. I thought it was sooo cool when they got it but now thinking of the price I think it's the most stupid thing they have wasted money on! If it was only $500.00 maybe it would be ok to not use so often, but for what it cost I'd want to be using it alot more!!

    I don't have one, I thought about it for a long time but have decided against it - I think it lacks finesse in the way it does things. I'm a bit old fashioned about food. I want to get a Kenwood Cooking Chef instead.

    Amara - why does you hubby hate thermy food?

    We must have the same friend

    A friend of ours bought one but her DH wishes she hadn't, he doesn't think anything she uses it for tastes as good as when she didn't have one

    I have to admit I don't really understand the excitement that they seem to generate and I am a keen home cook

    I went to a party not that long ago and it was great fun and I really really wanted one but yeah not for that price . If I didn't use it that much I would feel bad about spending the money .
    My hubby is a steak n veg guy he is not in to new ideas for main mains .
    hubby is away at the moment so I just naughty and got a rip off one .
    kids and I have had some fun with it and i have made different puree for bub.(if i didn't have it no way would i take the time chopping different foods up) .lol .
    it will be interesting if i keep using it or go back to old ways .

    The normal food you cook now would you cook in a thermomix ? guess thats something to look at .

    My DH prefers when I cook without the thermo - especially risotto. I kinda agree.

    But it is great for heaps of stuff, I don't think I use it like other ppl do. Ie. Cooking meals - I much prefer my pots, pans and oven. But I do use it for tempering choc, making custards, cooking eggs, steaming things, chopping things for soups (but will then cook on the stove), some cakes, blending, making flour, making dough/bread.

    I use it more as a prep tool and low control temp pastry work, but do the actual cooking on the stove.

    It is great for sauces and stuff too.

    I love my Thermomix!!! Since getting it I haven't cooked anything in a pot or pan, everything has been in the Thermomix. I can put the ingredients in and walk away while it cooks - bliss.
    On top of that baking is a whole lot easier and less messy, mix up what ever in 20 seconds and pour it into a tin and in the oven. No time to clean up and I can sit down with a hot cup of hot chocolate or coffee (made in the Thermomix) while I wait for my baking to bake. It tastes SO MUCH better made from scratch vs the pre-packaged crap.
    DF isn't keen on some of the dinner recipes (not that he has tried, he just doesn't think they sound good) but that's easy fixed and I cook them when he is at work.
