"It's an appliance your rich mother in law gives you as a wedding gift because she thinks you can't cook"
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.
, 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
