Thermomix - reviews

Postby b2b3m4 » Wed Apr 04, 2012 2:39 pm

I am a FTWM with 3 kids and I enjoy cooking for my family.

I have read lots of great reviews on the net of the benefits of Thermomix and am wondering if there is anyone out there who owns one and can share about this machine.

It is currently available at TOTTS and costs more than $2K.

Benefits
- does weighing - good for children to start off cooking. Not for me whereby everything goes by "aga-ration" or eye ball.
- a super blender that can crush ice to make ice cream, crush rock sugar to icing sugar
- blends and cook at the same time. meaning can make soya drinks, blends and fries spices
- cooked at controlled temp. Good for making baby food (i no longer need that)
- cooks pasta and risotto by itself without the need to stand over the stove

Anyone can share if it is worth the money?

I have done lots of research and read all the reviews. It has received great feedbacks but doesn't seems to pick off here.

I am just wondering if any forumers own this machine and if they bought it from TOTTS or a Thermomix representive?

Hello,

Yes after a lot of thought, deliberation and saving, my husband have finally purchased a Thermomix a year ago :love:

I have fall in love with it and cannot go without it daily.

It is definitely worth the money getting, especially if you have children at home.

It is a brilliant time saving tool that allows you making a lot of things easily from scratch.

Hmmm . . . . it is just like a "German Maid" at home :smile:

May I know how much you pay for it ? There seems to be some kind of similar machine selling in Tangs, do you think it is in the same league ?

Hi,

It was a gift from my husband last April.

I am sorry that I do not know the exact price but heard from him that it cost around S$2300 to S$2500.

I am not sure about the one selling in Tangs.

It is definitely worth getting it if you have some kids at home.

Cheers!

why ? because it is easy for kids to use ? or because it can cook kids stuff easily ? so a lot of blended stuff ? Sorry for so many question, because i am also thinking of buying a vitamix (blender), but if thermomix can do the blending job as well as vitamix, then may be i can just invest on thermomix.

thanks.
