    Still live my slow cooker too
    I have read a couple of threads on here about the thermomix. Does it make proper ice cream or more of a sorbet ? Doesn't it need a freezer bowl type thing? The one I make in the blender uses frozen fruit and ice so not really the typical ice cream. Thermo is out of my budget right now but does sound like an amazing appliance.
    Some of the other things I have been interested in are air fryer, mil told me about a magic cooker (?), slow press juicer...

    I like my pressure cooker, I find it cooks meat and lentils well. I've used it for a pasta recipe that was so quick and easy it was a joke.

    Also my Kitchenaid for baking, and a stick blender which is so useful for puréeing soups, sauces and baby food.

    Stove & oven.

    Nothing a slow-cooker does that a good pot can't do on a stove, plus I cook slow-cooked stuff rarely. Gives me gas plus prefer lighter food.

    Except I can't leave my stove on all day!

    Love my George Foreman grill. Cook all my meat in there, chargrilled vege and toasted sangas.

    You cream it all and mix it up in thermie and pop it in the freezer to freeze. Then you take it back out again to cream again - to incorporate all the ice particles back into the milk.
    Sorbet is done with ice so it's already frozen

    Thermomix hands down. I have gotten rid of my food processor, blender, rice cooker and kitchen mixer.

    The only other two appliances I have (apart from normal ones toaster, kettle, sandwhich press) is my coffee machine which would be my next fav and then my slow cooker.

    I don't like making chicken dishes in the slow cooker but I love it for beef and lamb especially shanks. I use it quite often in winter but hubby also does a lot of stews on the camp oven outside when we are allowed to light fires (desperately waiting for that moment) so it certainly gets used a lot less.
