My original Thermomix is from 1995. A family member is still using it. The restaurant Thermomixes have been there for at least 7 years and still going strong-used daily.

They are VASTLY overpriced but a good machine. Seems like quality control might be the problem at the moment. Wonder if they have outsourced?

I think for me, I only EVER buy an appliance if Im going to use it. One of my favourite soups of all time is Gazpacho. There is a guy in Palma who makes just the best and his restaurant (sold) would attract people from all over just for the icy soup. He told me that he made the Gazpacho for 16 years in the home made way. Then he bough a Thermomix. The only thing that altered in the taste was......... nothing. It just took 50% less time to make it and the recipe still had to go through each process.

Thermomix has aided me to prepare better food. It has not replaced my techniques or hands on approach. It works in the part of the process when I need an appliance.

(In Spain, you would be surprised how nearly every restaurant uses them in some part of the cooking process... it doesnt replace being able to cook or recipes-it enhances them

People assume that it is a miracle cooker. Its not. It is a cooker. It doesnt prepare food for you, it cuts/blends/heats and cooks as food needs to be done in sequence, just in one pot. I like the weigh function and the ability to control heating whilst mixing...

Re: Thermomix or hotmixpro for food prep

Well i just phoned her yes they have out sourced them the problem with the current model is the push pad buttons stop functioning ie it gives the wrong input to what you asked and the outer casing or body scratches easily , she said they are offering right now as from April 25% off and two yrs interest free terms

But I have to admit the cakes she has made in it are brilliant how one of these things does that is beyond me
