    I don't own a TM but I've been to a couple of demos. I was impressed at the simplicity of the fruit slushie thing. The coleslaw was good too but nothing I can't do in my food processor. Risotto was cool too, because I hate stirring risottos. Everything else was stuff that I could easily do with conventional methods.
    The bread rolls were hideous!
    I liked how it milled flours etc but I think they show you that as standard.

    Hi there, I do not have a Thermo and have never used one, but I visited a friend recently who has a Thermomix- she made a tuna dip, and then a bernaise sauce (which we had over a bbq steak)- they were both amazing. If I had one, I think would make dips from scratch all the time, and I know the kids would devour them, with vege sticks. The tuna dip was sensational. She also made gluten free pizza dough- wow. She uses the Thermo for every meal.

    Thanks everyone! Seems like everyone finds something different to love about the thermo. I'm really hoping it *is* able to make life with 2 under 3 easier!

    I use mine nearly every day. It's great for sauces and risotto as saves time stirring, but I also love just doing potatoes or rice in the jug and steaming veg on top. It also does a great lasagne mix and Quirky Jo's Chicken Satay Cashew dish is to die for. Scones are awesome, jam is easy and the stock is good too. I use it in stove top dishes as well!

    Depending on how little your kids are, it's also amazing for baby food. When my DD was little, she wasn't interested in BLW like my son was, and I used to whip up 5-7 different main meal options and stewed fruit in a couple of house and freeze them and it would last a month! So easy.

    I found a cupcake recipe on the forum - best ever cupcakes - which was written by a hubber as it turns out, and they are awesome too. Makes kids school birthdays, cake stalls etc so easy as you can whip up a double batch in about 3 minutes! And they are DIVINE.

    Sorry to butt in but I'd love that cupcake recipe

    Thanks @Californication - that's exactly what I wanted to hear! I love baking and love the idea of being able to whip up a big batch of cakes in minutes - 3 minutes, unbelievable !

    This is the recipe link recipecommunity.com.au/baking-sweet-recipes/best-ever-cupcakes/120607 (it wouldn't let me post the proper link, so add in the w w w etc

    They are so light and fluffy and freeze well too. I've made them for lots of things and everyone raves over them. If only they knew how easy they were ;-)

    I meant to add I always do a double batch. And I usually scrap the bowl and give them another quick mix to make sure it's all mixed in.

    There's so much I love about it. I use mine pretty much every day (eg today I made dinner -pork ragu and a loaf of bread).
