    Default Thermomix???

    I've had one for about 4 years and the first few years was just awesome. My DH fell in love with me again I swear haha! Anyway I recently went through a boredom stage but after investing in a few more books and checking out the forum + blogs of recipes I am in love all over again. I use it every day It's on right now as we speak cooking me a tuna anchovy pasta yummmmm

    Edit: during my boredom stage I was offered 1700 for mine but then I freaked and kept it. They really hold their value.

    I absolutely love mine. Don't know how I lived without it. Enjoy the demo they make some yummy food. You will be amazed. You don't really need to ask any questions they really sell themselves once you see them in action

    Default Thermomix???

    I'm one of *those* people that never uses hers 6 months later

    Although it's been a pretty tough few months in my defense (pregnant with a 17mth DS and DH left us). I haven't really been cooking for myself, which I know I need to start doing again. It makes awesome smoothies though!

    I must start reading the books for inspiration again.

    Default Re: Thermomix???

    I thought the patent recently ran out - hence the Philips Home Cooker and others that have recently come on the market. That's only a few hundred dollars ($299 in recent sale) , I fail to see how the Thermomix could possibly be worth the crazy extra money.

    Target also sell a few variations for under $400. I'd love one but I don't think I'd use it enough

    It's better quality, gearless motor and has the reverse function. Each to their own though, some will think investing in a $2000 tv is a great idea I think investing in a quality kitchen appliance is a good idea.

    I've had mine for just over 2 years and I'm still in love, as a PP said it will sell itself. It does sound like a lot of money but I do save on not buying pre-packaged stuff, the savings paid for my thermy within the first year.

    From what I understand, you get what you pay for. The cheaper ones work just as well in the beginning but burn out fast and arent as good quality (blades, bowl, scraper etc.) as the Thermomix.
