I love gadgets, so I kinda want one... DH needs some convincing, and I guess I probably do too.
We both love cooking, but I never ever make things like my own sugar, flour, yoghurt, ground spices. And I have no desire to start doing that.
I know I can make bread in it, which would be handy.
I have a Kitchenaid, so would continue to use that for cakes rather than the Thermomix.
So... I'm wondering what I would use the Thermomix for? Whenever I see people write about it, it's always "I grind my own caster sugar" or "I make my own yoghurt".
Can anyone please describe to me what it would do differently for a dish they would normally cook?
So... if I would normally make a spaghetti bolognese by chopping everything up, cooking it in a big saucepan, and then boiling spaghetti and serving up. What would it do differently?
Or if I make macaroni by making a basic white sauce, then adding cheese/ mustard/ nutmeg (that's how I do my cheese sauce), then boiling macaroni and combining the 2. What would the Thermomix do differently?
