    Default Mistral 8 in 1 Ultimate Kitchen Machine

    Does anyone have one?

    BigW has them on sale. They look like they do similar things to the TMX, plus they have the digital scales which really appeal to me. It seems like it has similar specs to the TMX.

    I have been to a TMX demo and want one, but not enough to pay 2k for it. I would probably use it most as a high powered food processor and maybe some cooking so the 2k is too much. But a couple of hundred I could do.

    Any feedback?

    I'm curious too. A quick look and it only has a 2l bowl like the TMX. It seems like a traditional food processor, where you have to switch the blades for chopping/stirring but with more speed variations and the ability to cook.

    I did not realise you have to change the blades. I wonder if you can still do the `one pot' type stuff like the TMX. (i.e. soups).

    There are very few reviews on it I could find, maybe it is reasonably new.

    I bought one on Friday used it once so far to cook a stir fry/curry and it turned into mush I'm hoping it's just me! You can supposedly modify thermomix recipes to suit it too. Would love to hear how other people went with it!

    Good news! It was probably just you. I have a thermomix and have turned a whole heap of meals in to mush (aka purée). Once you learn how it works I am sure you will be fine . It just takes some time getting used to.

    I bought a mistral a couple of days ago, so far I've had fun experimenting with it, I will have a proper play on the weekend. =)

    Subbing target also has a bellini version that was on sale for $299 a couple of weeks back. I think it is also a rip off tmx but id never spend 2k!

    I've got the target version and it works great. It also has the two blades cause it doesn't have the reverse function of the tmx, I think it's based on the previous version.

    I was looking at getting the Ultimate Kitchen Machine also. Was looking online for a comparison and found this review from someone who has a tmx and tried the UKM
