    Question tell me about your thermochef

    Firstly yes I know there is something better on the market called a thermomix, I just can't afford that so I'm only interested in this one. What I'd really like to know is:

    How big can it chop things, eg. Can I use it to make chunky soups or to chop up the bits for a fried rice?

    Is it ok at milling flour?

    How does it stack up in quality against say a good food processor? I don't have a food processor so I've decided I at least need one of them.


    My son has multiple food intolerances so I find I need to make so much from scratch and I think this would really help save me time, which I am in short supply of with two under threes. But $800 is a lot of money so its a big decision for me and a rare luxury item.

    I don't have one but have been looking at alternatives, there was an article done on them in Choice
    http://www.choice.com.au/reviews-and...ef-review.aspx

    Which basically says they are good but not as good. I have also looked at the Cuisinart Hot and Cold Blender which is about $280 or less. Not sure what I'll get but I'm like you, need a new blender but I'm more likely to spend 2 grand on a new ride on mower than a hot and cold blender.

    Hello

    I have a thermochef & have had one for a few weeks.

    I really like it It does chop, but (in your example) for fried rice you'd be better chopping the bacon yourself.

    Here is a blog with recipes for the 'chef, to get an idea of what it does:

    there is also a facebook group of owners that help & share recipes etc, let me know if you want the link.
