    Go the KitchenAid.

    If you've already got saucepans and a food processor etc and know your way around the kitchen then a thermomix is overrated.

    Thermomix. You can do everything in it that a kitchen aid does plus so much more.
    I suggest contacting Thermomix to seea demo before you decide. I don't do a lot of sauce type foods in thermie but what I love is the time factor.
    Eg
    I made pasta with creamy mushrooms and bacon in it. .. put everything in the chop/saute then added water/cream and pasta...set for 18 minutes.... Go do something else and is done.
    I make bread dough in it in less than 8 minutes.
    Yesterday I made choux pastry/custard/ganache for profiteroles... was easy.
    Make sorbet.
    Steam fish/rice veggies in less than 20 minutes with dressing.

    I use it everyday. Much more than I would use a kitchen aid.. though I think they look pretty great!

    I love my kitchen aid and as far as I can tell a slow cooker and a stab blender are just as effective as a thermomix

    My mil offered to buy me a tmx for Christmas last year and I ended up turning it down as I have a good food processor and the only positive I could see with it was not having to stir food while it's cooking, that was nowhere near enough to make me want it.
    So, with your choices, I'd definitely get the kitchen aid and air fryer.

    There are two kitchen aid tools people are talking about here.
    The one I have is a food processor. The only extra I've got is the round addition to chop French fries.
    I've had the machine for a year and a half and I use it every single day.
    It all goes in the dishwasher.

    I love to make dips in the small bowl, make heaps of grapefruit and oranges juices with the specific add on, mix my dough when baking in the large bowl. I grate and chop with all the discs for salads, mushrooms etc. use the French fries disc maybe weekly. I purée soups and mashed veggies in there as well.

    Totally love the appliance. Will still be looking stunning (and vintage I guess) on my kitchen bench in 50years.

    I'm not even remotely curious as to what a thermomix would bring to my kitchen.

    Not sure this helps as I haven't actually tried both options but I couldn't pass such a good occasion of an ode to my favorite appliance.

    I still adore my thermie after close to 3 years. I use it for heaps more than saucy type stuff, it gets used every day. Can't comment on the kitchen aid or air fryer, just my 2c

    I loooove my kitchenaid!

    I have an ice cream attachment too and it's just the best.

    I'm a bit like you. My kids wouldn't eat a curry and I'm not too fussed on making my own butter or porridge so I don't think a thermie would suit me.

    An airfryer? Sure, my kids could eat hot chips every day and they'd be so happy!

    But my kitchenaid rocks, I am a bit of a dessert queen so it's great!

    I'd choose a mixer & air fryer. I've been to a thermie demo & was completely underwhelmed by it and the food that came out of it. But I like the process of cooking & to me it doesn't fulfill that side of cooking. I'm a pot and wooden spoon kind of cook.

    I have an air fryer and kitchenaid mixer. I love my mixer!

    I also have a slow cooker, blender, food processor and stove with pots & pans.

    I've been to a thermomix demo and as far as I can see, they render most of your other appliances fairly useless. If you have no appliances already, a thermomix is probably a good investment, but I can already do all of those things with what I have.

    OP if you would use the mixer and/ or fryer every day, then you probably won't regret getting them instead of a thermomix.

    I love my KitchenAid mixer. It is just the best! Great for baking but we also use it for making ice cream and sorbet.

    I've been to a demo and Thermomix doesn't excite me at all because I enjoy the process of preparing food and cooking. I find it a good way to unwind. Depends on how much time/care factor you have when it comes to preparing food, I guess.
