I have a Thermomix, so obviously think that is better. Having the scales on the side would be a pain and mean you have to use something else to measure in. Also, I use the reverse function a great deal and can't imagine not having it.
My dh wasn't sold on it originally because of the price tag, but he's a nice guy so I got it for Christmas. He now thinks it was a fantastic buy. I use it at least twice a day, usually more. I love walking in from after school ballet lessons, spending 5 minutes with the thermy and then leaving it to bath the kids. 15 minutes later, clean kids and risotto ready to go on the table.
I get my Thermomix on Sat and I can't wait!!
Lets see, I have kids with allergies to dairy, eggs, tree nuts and intolerances to sulphites.
I have budgeted our groceries the best way I possibly can and still average $300 a WEEK on groceries. I spend $2.90 for 1 litre of milk...milk that I can make in the thermomix with ease and at a fraction of the price. $1000 a year is spent on rice milk alone in my house. Make my own rice milk for 2 years and I have my money back
I hate cooking so anything that gets the job done quicker I'm open to.
I started uni this year. I don't have all day to spend in the kitchen baking, preparing etc.
Eating healthy is extremely important to us as a family and the busier our life gets the harder it will be to keep it up. $2 000 for optimal health doesn't sound like a lot to me.
I didn't even look at the thermochef so can't compare but I'm very excited about my thermomix!
Today I showered the kids and then so they didn't kill each other out of tiredness I turned the tv on for half an hour while I made dinner, then spent half an hour after they were in bed cleaning up the kitchen (a few pots and pans and things). If I had my thermo it would've been dinner on, shower kids, read a book to kids, serve up dinner, bed, 10 minutes in the kitchen cleaning up. I still made dinner tonight but the second option appeals to me a whole lot more!
I don't know, if you don't like the idea of one don't buy one. It's just like if you are happy to run outside rain, hail or shine then don't get a treadmill...personally the gym is where I feel my most motivated to push myself to the limit so I've paid for a gym membership for the last 7 1/2 years and will continue to do so. Thermo's are in a lot more places than bored stay at home mums kitchens
