    Oh yes!! I forgot about those!

    $20 sure sounds cheaper than the $1,930 pricetag on the thermomix

    Try the greek and honey, it's to die for. As is the vanilla, boysenberry, mango lol and they do heaps of greek variations.

    With the easy yo you can add a couple of spoons of skim milk powder to help it set/thicken up.

    As for the thermomix, I'm still not sure. I enjoy cooking and have my giant magimix for prepping, grinding, nut butters etc. The ease of jams, chutneys and sauces really appeals.

    Does any one make their own chutney, tomato sauce etc. Is it as easy as I think it would be? TBH if these things were easy it would be worth the price for me, I make all that sort of stuff from scratch and having to stay near the stove for hours on end to prevent burning drives me insane.

    One of the things that I really love the idea of, is making a single jar of jam out of a punnet of strawberries that are not going to get eaten!

    Wow I just checked out some demos on you tube and it did mashed potato from cooking it to mashing it which has surely sold me on it.

    I used esi yo all the time before found out needed to cut out dairy for ds. Yoghurt on cereal, Greek yoghurt in smoothies... A great investment. And when you find them on special, go nuts; they keep for ages... Maybe even until I can eat dairy again... Fingers crossed.

    Benji I use my thermie for yoghurt all the time as DS eats heaps of it. It costs as much to make as milk costs, so I can make a litre of yoghurt for $1 if I use cheap Coles milk, or more expensive if I use organic milk. It sets nice and thick, I use the thermoserver to set it in, but before I was using my easiyo thermos. I used to use easiyo but this is actually a lot cheaper and I think it's better as you know it's 100% milk - I wasn't sure what those easiyo sachets are made of.

    You can make yoghurt from milk in a slow cooker or microwave I think also, but it sounds a bit fiddly.

    Yes! You can do ALL of those things and more. Have a quick look on the net for saucy recipes.
    Quince paste is awesome. I had some given to me.
