    Personally I have been in 2 minds about this for a while as it looks like it just mixes stuff to a mush, like sauces, jams, sorbets, dips, mash potato etc. I dunno. I have a very dear friend that sells them, but haven't been to a demo yet, but have been meaning to go...
    I was using my kenwood approximately twice a week. Mainly for soups.
    From time to time I would use it to prepare baking dough (bread, pastry, cake etc) and yes the thermomix can do it.

    It's not as good as the kenwood for whipping stuff but def good enough for my baking skills

    Food processor, steamer, bread maker have all been chucked out/given away/sold. I've kept my hand held electric beaters for cakes that DD help me make cause I do them the 'old fashioned' way.

    I had my demo today of the TM5 so I could get my thermoserver (got my TM31 about 4 weeks ago).

    My thoughts - the recipe chip is great, when we got ours DH actually said 'they should have the recipe instructions come up on the screen' so it was kind of cool to see it came with it.

    It's quieter, slightly I think.

    I think it looks bulkier personally.

    The auto lock/unlock function is weird. Sometimes she would have turned it to unlock and it still hadn't unlocked. Maybe it was just her, I dunno?

    It's slightly bigger bowl and the temperature can go higher, both of which are great.

    Touchscreen is ok. I kind of prefer my TM31 nobs and buttons but that might just be me

    I never use the food processor and got rid of the juicer (hated it anyway too much cleaning). I still use a stick blender for one recipe only and I love my hand beaters. We have a kitchen aid which also never gets used but once move into the new house I reckon we'll use that (only because DH loves it so much).

    I was there when my consultant had her delivery demo years ago of the tm31 so ive seen both.
    I would agree.
    I do think I like the touch screen and I really lioe the guided recipes
