I love my thermo. It was money well spent for us. I know they're not for everyone, that's cool. I don't understand the antagonism/derision though. Your post is one example- " I don't need one, I won't sacrifice my cooking experience, it's ugly, someone is making lots of money off them and sucking people in- but I don't understand them much!" If you don't want one, that's totally fine. Just because others do it doesn't mean they were sucked in, wasted their money or miss out on some "cooking experience"- you can actually just say it's not something you own or are thinking about buying without the negativity towards others who feel differently.

ETA I hadn't read the bit about being "sucked in". Not sure how that isn't a personal attack but anyway.
There are lots of things I make for my kids that have zero cooking interest to me. Like macaroni cheese, or boiled eggs. I can chuck it all in and spend the time playing with my kids while it cooks.
However for other meals I still cook the old way but maybe do sauces in the thermo at the same time.
Why does it matter so much if people love their thermomix? I love mine so much I'm going to upgrade to the new model as soon as I can.

But I can see why it attracts some people, and doesn't appeal to others. Just because it appeals to some and is an item worth investing in, doesn't mean that they have been sucked in or have wasted their money. And similarly, those that choose not to buy one should be entitled to just feel that it's not something that they need or want, without having to justify why it's a bad decision for those that do buy one!

I dont think I have been sucked in to anything.
I have had plenty of honest and open discussions about it with friends who have them and have heard pros and cons.
Ive made an informed choice on what will work best in my current situation

I think no one is in a position to judge how others spend THEIR money. To some new cars, overseas holidays, renting, 2nd hand cars, domestic holidays and mortgages are a waste of money ( and yes I purposely did the opposite to prove a point).
I love to cook but frankly I don't have time on work nights to cook the way I want to. To me slow cooker meals or reheating is no different than using a thermo on those nights

I would love one. I enter comps when i see them. While i couldn't use it every night as i don't think it is big enough to feed my family. So i couldn't justify the price for that reason. I think they are great if you can afford one or two

I love it for my breakfast smoothies, kids banana milkshakes & ive recently dramatically reduced our familys sugar intake so I find its a useful tool to help me achieve our nutritional goals. I do still like my old ways of cooking ie my 2min hollandaise sauce, poached eggs, oven baked casseroles etc but its definitely a welcome addition

Like I said before, if I won the lotto, I'd be calling my nearest rep asap. I'm not against them and I have many friends who quietly go about the business of making good use of their thermies. For me, at this point in time, I don't consider it valuable enough to justify the investment.
