    I did see choice, mlf. I'm still not convinced on the price. I could by a new fridge AND washing machine for that price. I'm actually gobsmacked at how much they charge for a small appliance (yes, good appliance but the price is still insane).

    Yeah I read the Choice review too (thanks for posting). The only way I think I'd do it is on some kind of non interest payment plan. Then I could pretend i wasn't spending $2k on a kitchen appliance... My birthday is in two months, I've hinted a little but I doubt DP would be organised enough! He is the at Myer at ten minutes to five on Christmas Eve type I'm afraid.

    In all seriousness though - I really respect Choice Magazine and that's where I turn too if I am about to make a significant purchase.

    This is my thinking, but I'm going to a demo soon & I KNOW I'll want one!

    Re price...

    to build up my collection of enjo to clean my house inside and out - chemical free.. I spent well over a thousand dollars.
    That initial outlay will save me money in time -I no longer have to buy a single thing to clean the house for years and our health beneifits.

    I see the same in the Thermy!!

    I have come away from threads on BH thinking WTF!?? in regards to price, and have been to a demo and allowed myself that time to 'come down' - because I know when something is presented in that fashion it can seem magical and throw your critical thinking off tilt!

    My personal priorities are avoiding certain chemicals in food - natural and man made, saving time, not have a cupboard full of lots and lots of different crap, and saving money spent on pre packaged food.

    I do believe in time a thermie will save us money after the initial outlay and help us have that [nasty]chemical free diet.

    I'm saving up though - because I don't wanna pay interest!!


    If you look at it in this from this perspective -
    We are a family of 5, we get take away about once a week spending on average $40 in one hit.
    That over a year is over $2000!!


    (everyone's own personal finances are their own concern though --- but that is how I have "justified" spending it 'for us')

    Oh I think it's more than fair enough where people spend their own finances. I have no problems making my own jams, breads, etc with my oven, food processor, stove etc so I'd probably have to live to about 200 years old to make $2,000 worth of savings. And then some. I'd love it for the time factor but it's not that much of a deal.
