Curious to know how many people here have a Thermomix (pref v5) in their household?
We have been approached and my wife attended a demo for one and seemed pretty impressed. The problem for me is it's all of $2500 which is insanity. Secondly it's based on a direct marketing (Think Pyramid Scheme) format of selling and lastly, being an above average cook, I can't see myself using it ever
as it doesn't do some of the things I consider essential, like long slow cooking, browning of meat etc.
My wife who would eat the same thing every day for the rest of her life and who has next to no interest in cooking, seems quite taken, but admits she isn't as much likely to cook MORE as it would be cook different meals (maybe).
I am curious for some reviews. The new one as a step by step on screen guide and has a few handy functions (that they all do) in terms of throwing in your ingredients and then leaving it be. It does all the stirring, cutting etc and then cooks.
Any feedback would be appreciated. Did your cooking improve, frequency or quality improve, and how often do you use it?
