Nay for me. I found it gives food a processed taste - maybe because everything is so uniformly chopped?
In saying that, I was mainly looking at the tmx for cooking dinner - as a "helper" in the kitchen (making mash for the shepherds pie you've cooked on the stove) or for making sauces like hollandaise or whipping up a cake batter it's terrific. Not sure I can justify the price for that though!
I'm also not a fan of of the plastic lid or varoma - don't like the idea of plastic heating to such high temperatures day after day into my food...

Subbing! There are so many ideas that I can use with my ... wait for it ... Kenwood that also cooks! I find it a much better machine for our family - obviously each to their own but the quantities and different attachments available for the Kenwood I find superior. Cost is about the same.

I've also got a "poor womans version" - and so glad I have as it turns out I would not get my $2000 worth from a thermomix. I like to to cook and I found that food cooked in the thermocooker had a mushy basic taste I didn't like at all. I don't even use it as a food processor - it pulverises everything. I like my bologanise sauce with finely chopped vege (I'm a good chopper!) So I'm back to the stove, but I do use it for sauces - like white sauce, emulsion sauces, gravy - and it is brilliant for that and those things can make a meal special, but I'm glad I got the cheaper version.

I love the sausage maker, mincer, choppers of every kind. Makes the best mashed potato. I grew up with Kenwoods, they're very English! My next addition is the ice cream maker. Too many options!

Yep it's not cheap, but the same cost as a Thermo (and much quieter too). Check any attachments that you may have and whether they will fit on a new machine. Unfortunately mine didn't but depending on the age of your current attachments they might fit. I can't fault it. Bread dough and pizza bases are so easy (as is coleslaw, cheesecakes, and my new favourite with the mincer is prawn and fish spring rolls...)
