    Default Thermo-xxxx

    Im after some advice.
    Im 30 in 6 months and have asked everyone to contribute some money to put towards a thermomix.
    Heres the thing though. ... its still a lot of money.
    So-is a thermomix worth the extra over a thermo chef or a bellini one?

    I got a thermomix for my 30th.

    I haven't tried any of the other ones to compare to

    But ive never had any problems with my thermomix and for what it does, perfect.

    I haven't tried any of the others but I love my thermomix. We saved up for a few months to afford ours and I haven't regretted it even for a second.

    For me, i joined a few multi thermo groups on facey first. I saw lots of people having problems with their thermo versions, needed refunds and so on. I saw many people asking for tips on how to convert thermomix recipes because their machine didnt do one of the things the thermomix did. And i didnt want to deal with any of that.

    I saved for a year because we didnt qualify for interest free.

    Love my thermie. Haven't tried the others. So can't comment. But I don't think you'll regret it.

    It's a bit like comparing a tinny boat with a flash yacht. They both do the same things however the thermie is better built and engineered. I own a Bellini and although it's at a fraction of the cost it has its downfalls. They do have 12 months warranty and excellent customer service for parts etc but tbh if I was on your position, I'd go for the thermie .
