I thought it was! It whipped up but then when I very slowly added the icing sugar it turned to slush!
Hey Thermy lovers, I have a question that I thought someone here might be able to answer. I've seen it mentioned that you can pay your Thermy off in three instalments that are around $6-700 each. I was wondering if you have to wait until you make these repayments until you actually receive your Thermy or whether its like a payment plan type thing? Also, does it grate? As in can you grate cheese, carrot etc like you can in a food processor? TIA
You get your thermy straight away then do 3 payments over 3 months.. That's what I did
I must admit I was skeptical after reading all the threads on here ( how can it be that good?) but I can now say I am a convert! I went to a demo last night ( beetroot salad and mushroom risotto yum!) the only reservation I have is that I love to cook, I like sauces/curries simmering for hours on the stove , will the thermy take my joy away or make it better??? ( button if you are reading would love your advice on this!)
Also she said when you make pasta sauce you add the pasta noodles directly to the sauce to cook - is that right?
I have never added pasta to my sauce in the thermy Elijahs mum, but that's just me. I find I use mine a lot for things that require a lot of stirring while cooking- white sauce, risotto and porridge for example. I live in a rental and have an electric cook top and no matter how low I turn the heat down, I can never get it low enough for a long gentle simmir without burning. I find the thermy perfect in that instance too. It has not decreased my love of cooking. I find it makes it better because it moves some to the tedious bits. It is also great for takeaway. Monday night sports night in my house used to be something heated up out of the freezer or takeaway. It is now risotto, dahl, or soup night because I can bath the kids in the time it takes to cook. I also use it for things I hadn't expected, like boiling eggs. I never forget that they are cooking because the alarm goes off at the perfect time in the thermy.

I don't enjoy cooking so for me it is th ebest but my aunty loves to cook and she is in heaven with hers!! All of her status updates are about what she has made in the Thermomix!
I haven't had mine for long, just a few weeks, and I tend to use their recipes to know the speeds/times etc for my own recipes eg. last night I made a vegan brown fried rice in the Themomix using their stir fried asain vegies as a guide....my DH could not stop raving about it. My fried rice is very different to normal fried rice but the tofu came out like scrambled eggs mixed through with the vegies. It was good!
