Good for 3 to months
I have had two of these machines. Both returned to target. Got my money back as they dont seem to be stocking them anymore. They both overheated often and the first one had the lid warp and leak. When they overheat they shut down and cant be used until they cool down. You have to transfer everything to another way of cooking. What a pain. Having to change blades is a pain tooand messy. I woulnt have another one.
If your an occassional user it would be ok. I used it often, by that i mean three to four times a week mainly for baby food and soups.
Great time saver, easy to use.
Have had this machine for close to three months now and love it. Easy to use if you follow instructions correctly for useage. Can easily convert other thermal type cooker recipes with ease, sometimes a bit extra cooking time or speed is all that is required. Can be a bit of a pain downloading and transferring recipes onto the SD card but easy enough to do. Two jugs are definitely the way to go, however if you buy a spare jug it is just that, a jug, no blades, lid or seal. In saying that spare parts are reasonably cheap and easy to get a hold o...f. I highly recommend the facebook page Bellini Addicts which is full of everyday user "experts" with heaps of wise wisdom, knowledge and recipes. They have changed the scales so are no longer round ones so it's now easier to see weights when weighing. It can mush your food into a pulp so food does need to be cut into quite big chunks to compensate for this. I also recommend investing in a bottle brush to get into all the nooks and crannies when washing it up, making sure you pull everything (seals, blades) apart so it is washed properly.
A Nice Addition to Your Kitchen
I have found that I can use thermomix recipes pretty much straight across. Though sometimes requires extra cooking or chopping time. Especially rice. Doesn't really matter if you use blunt or sharp blade. Both end up doing the same thing. The Yumi requires a SD card reader, and some tech savvy. Which seems outdated technology, though WI-FI Yumi is coming soon. I found its better to have two jugs, with blades set up. Otherwise you have to hand wash jug in the middle of some recipes. It's nice to set up something and just walk away to let it cook. I don't like the scales. They are wobbly, and you can't see screen under jug. Jury still out on whether it actually saves time.

It hasn't changed my life yet...
Like most others thinking about buying this machine I couldn't even begin to fathom spending $2k on a thermomix so, after a huge amount of research, this is the one I chose.
I've now had it for 2 weeks and so far I haven't been swearing at myself for blowing my cash on this thing.
I'm not a great cook but in the past fortnight I've cooked garlic prawns, paella, 2 pasta dishes and a big batch of caramel fudge and apart from one of the pasta dishes all have been really nice and they're things I have never attempted to do "traditionally".
