    Default Thermomix - is it really worth all the $$$

    Hi there. Apologies in advance I know this has prob been done over and over but I can't find it. I went to a thermi party a few mths ago and was really amazed by what it can do. I myself am not very 'handy' in the kitchen and often feed the family on crock pot meals and chicken rice and sauce from a jar mind of meals. For someone like me, someone who also can't afford to pay all up front so would be going for the paying it off option, is it going to be a wise use of my money???

    Honest opinions please I am also having a third bub so thought it may come in handy

    Im a very basic cook and I still love mine, hardly ever do anything fancy and 3 years later I still think its one of the best things I have ever bought!

    Just do it! If you decide it's not for you, they hold their value really well

    DH thinks it's worth every cent because it has made me a better cook. I have branched out into things I never imagined I could make.

    I make all of our dips from scratch. Hardly ever buy the store bought ones any more.

    I make things like prawn and chicken wontons, butter chicken (as good as you get at restaurants), homemade kfc chicken, a garlic prawn risotto to die for, an awesome broccoli salad in minutes and bagels.

    I have always been crappy at baking but now I have made things like Vanilla Bean Cheesecake with Roasted Fruit, Walnut and Date Loaf and Sticky Date Pudding.

    All of these things you can make without a thermomix, but I never did it because you have to stand in the kitchen for over an hour to achieve it, and who has the time when you have kids. The thermomix is great because a lot of things are just chuck it in and the leave it until it beeps. So I can get things done while it is cooking it all. The recipes are also so easy to follow, that it is really hard to stuff up even the most complicated of dishes.

    I hesitated for about 18 months over buying one because of the price. But I got it and I love it.
    I do like cooking anyway. .. but I now make things from scratch I otherwise wouldn't. It's awesome. Well worth the dollars for me.
