    :
    The dinners make enough for both my girls to have one decent portion, DF two serves and me 1-2 serves with 1-2 serves worth of leftovers. I use it daily I make the girls oats in it in the morning, then dinner at night, as well as any baking etc.

    I have anolon range. They come with lifetime guarantee which does work! If something happens you send it away and they will replace faulty pans.
    I would buy at myer during a sale! Or a kitchen shop when having a sale.

    As for the cast iron pots ... I have a Jamie Oliver one. It's great. But they are big and heavy. I have a smaller type one, much cheaper that you can put on gas hob then in oven. It's fantastic. I use it at least twice a week. Way more than my Jamie Oliver one. Just for convenience. I think it's circulon brand.
    So anyway... A good few expensive ones does make a difference I think.
    I'm also thinking of buying a thermomix though!!!!

    It probably doesnt hurt to have the Thermomix plus some good quality pots and pans. Are scanpan really good? Iv heard conflicting reports, but I guess you get that with every brand.

    Just trying to research what I get as it will probably end up being quite expensive when I include the Thermomix
    I have one I've had it for 2.5 years it does enough for 6 people (most recipes call for 500g of meat which is a good way to gauge I find as different families eat different amounts) I do generally use it everyday somedays it's just for dinner somedays I don't use it for dinner at all other days I use it 4-5 times it really depends what's on my menu and how I feel like cooking. If I am having a really hectic day I love to be able to whip up dinner in 20min (only 5 minor prep).

    Have you had a demo? It's a really good way to see it for yourself

    Actually, yes I do. The only thing I'm not using at the moment is the icecream maker because it's cold and we don't eat icecream this time of year...

    The thing that turned me off it was I housesat for my aunt who has one and I cooked in it every night and honestly, nothing tasted as good as my own recipes! And I hate following recipes too.

    I think it'd be good for juices, ice cream and milling things but otherwise I'm happy to do everything old school

    Ah I found I followed recipes for a few months but I'm a chucker-in-er when I cook, once you get the basics down pat it's so easy to make your own recipes (concoctions) and adjust stuff to suit your family
