    Quick (dumb) questions...
    Does it cook rice (like a rice cooker)?
    If I get a thermomix, will I still need a slow cooker?
    Does it do things like bolognaise (where you usually brown the mince)?
    It's good for doing cake and biscuit mixes, right? So I plonk everything in, dough comes out and then I bake dough in the oven?

    Yes it cooks rice

    I haven't ever used a slow cooker.

    Bolognaise is perfect

    Cakes and biscuits take as little as 2 minutes to prepare in a thermomix.

    What bolognese recipe do you use, @Sonja?

    Gosh, I'm nearly sold and haven't seen a demo.

    I work PT and need to cook for DH and 14 month old DS. Are there some "common" dinner dishes that take less than 10 minutes prep time and are toddler/adult friendly?

    Christmas would be a good excuse right?

    I use the everyday one from the cookbook it comes with. DH and I don't eat bolognaise so I find that one very child friendly.

    I'm sure there would be. My standards for the kids (DH and I don't eat with the kids during the week) are curries, macaroni cheese, quiche, I tend to decide what I'm making for dinner at 4pm and throw it altogether to be one the table by 5.

    Thank you. I tried that one and it didn't float my boat but I'm Italian so my standards are fairly high I guess - plus none of my kids will eat spag bol anyway.I was just looking for an easy mid week/tractor meal.

    I'm a sort of non thermy loving thermo owner but I'll never give mine back!

    Yeah I wouldn't go for it as an adult but bolognaise isn't my thing. Only DS1 and DD3 eat it but I use the same recipe for tacos but reduce the tomato. I'm sure there would be great recipes online.

    You should check out some Italian thermomix forums. I bought an international cookbook and it's got some amazing stuff in it.
