So I'm in the lovely position of being able to choose which I want for my birthday pressie. It's a biggy - I'm 40 and I think DH is trying to avert a crisis of some sort so I'm playing along.
Oh poor me...sob...I'll have that one and that one and ooooh that one in three colours hehehe, kidding!
Anyway, he has decided it has to be bought and wrapped for the day itself (PRESSURE) and I can't decide which would be better.
The Thermomix - I'm not convinced this is suited to us -
or a Kitchen Aid and an Air-fryer.
The reasons I'm not going gaga for a Thermomix is my kids just will NOT eat anything saucy.
So soups , stews, curries, all the meals that are easy to do in there just don't get cooked too often in this house anyway.
And then of course is the whopping price tag.
On the other hand, I would love a decent mixer.
The Kitchen Aid is something I've been oogling for a long while (to the tune of En Vogue's 'Never ever gonna get it') so I think a combo of that and an air-fryer for the kids finger food they love so much, (home made nuggets, sweet potato chips, crispy prawns etc etc) would be the perfect combo..
Am I mad though? Am I the only woman in living history to turn down a Thermomix?
Will I regret it and sulk like a child forever ultimately resulting in my DH leaving me for a woman who has a Thermy to warm the cockles of his heart?
A Kitchen aid and air fryer would still come in at around half the cost of a Thermomix too, so that's appealing as well.
Have I just answered my own questions?
No...I was asking if I'm mad to refuse one.
What would you do?
