My Thermomix has well and truly paid for itself
I purchased my Thermomix with the intent of reducing our grocery bill and decreasing the processed foods in our household. I can honestly say that this definitely happened. I learn't to make a lot of basics from scratch by speaking to my consultant, utilising the Thermomix resources and Cook Key, and also by sourcing from the various third party recipe developers for Thermomix such as Skinny Mixers. My husband was initially against this purchase but within 6 months he was admitting that it was one of the best house appliance purchases we had ma...de. It is not a difficult machine to use but you do not need to stick to Thermomix recipes for a little while to learn the machine and get a feel for the functions before you go and start doing your own recipes. It didn't initially save time however once I became confident in using it it definitely cuts down the time it takes to cook dinner and prepare snacks/baking for the week. I even regularly bake my own bread.

this product has broken down three times - as a customer you end up spending a lot of money on parts and mailing. I would recommend getting a cheaper product.
it's a good blender.

It’s a decent machine but should be more reliable for this amount of money.
In my case I’ve already spent over $1000 for servicing. The scale broke multiple times and the software is really laggy. It freezes for a few seconds at least 2-3 times each day since the software update a year ago. I paid for a service to look at the software, they always take around $100 for it but is again is slow when I can back home so I’m basically wasting money. For a machine valued $2100 it should be more reliable. If it breaks another time I’ll throw it away and buy an Aldi equivalent for $300. And the Cookidoo disconnects on high spee...ds due to vibration. Also the platform for meal planning is not polished and when I send recipes to the machine then only when I start cooking it says they are meant for TM6. This is a joke I don’t get.

Does it’s job
I like it enough to use it everyday but I think it’s rather overhyped and it’s just a passing fad. If money permits I think it’s a good machine to have though.

Good but not worth the price tag in my opinion
I do enjoy using my Thermomix, I do think it's great, but if I'm completely honest, I don't think they are worth the price tag. There are still plenty of things I prefer to cook stove top or in the oven, having said that, it has made cooking or preparing foods easier.
Reliable and Easy
We have had our Thermomix now for over a year and it has been the best purchase we have made. It is so simple to use and we use it daily.

Excellent time saver, love the guided cooking
I bought my TM5 back in April when the special clearance was on, so managed to pick it up at a bargain price that included the cook key, an extra bowl and a 6 month subscription to the cookidoo website.
So far, the machine has done everything I have asked of it.
I particularly like the guided cooking as the settings are pretty much automatic and the instructions are very clear.
The cookidoo website is good. I love that I can pop the recipes into the weekly calendar but I do have some advice. If you are going to 'save' recipes to it, save them ...to the last available day of the week, even if you really plan on cooking it earlier. That way it won't disappear from your list if for some reason you don't get around to making it exactly when you plan to. I probably don't use the TM5 as much as I should, but I do appreciate the time savings. For instance, often while it is making the soup or the custard or whatever, you have a clearly defined time to go and do something else. If the timer shows it is cooking for 10 minutes, that is usually enough time to wash up the dishes used in preparation and wipe down benches etc I made apple shortcake yesterday and loved that the shortcake pastry came out already kneaded and perfect consistency. The custard I also made was a breeze, no need to stir or watch. I was also amazed by how it can turn lemon zest into a fine powder for the Portuguese tart recipe. Excellent.

Absolute time saver
LOVE this machine. Makes food prep so much easier and far less messy. What used to take a whole weekend of bulk prepping for school lunches and fast dinners now takes a few hours. And also makes cooking meals we never would have tried to make at home so much easier. We’ve had it for over 12 months and are still learning new things it’s capable of. Winner!

Thermomix TM5 - "Ownership and Afterservice"
I previously owned the TM31 (the problematic one that needed the green seal). I have now had the TM5 for just on two years.
I love my new TM5 and do a lot of experimenting with it compared to the TM31 which mainly sat in the corner on the bench for years doing little. The reason, the TM5 is user friendly and I was lucky that the person who sold me the TM5 is very passionate about the Thermomix. Having a consultant who took the time to show me how to use it by cooking recipes on initial purchase and continually sharing information via a monthl...y newsletter makes you want to experiment and not leave it unused sitting on the bench corner. A good consultant definitely makes a difference. Yes, have had problems with my TM5. #1- arm made unusual noises on opening and shutting. #2 when dialing up time the dial was all over the place. Even with these faults I was able to continue using the machine. I have never had a problem with my scales as I have it sitting on a carpet backed tile enabling me to move it around with ease. Cleudo's to Thermomix Balcatta who were excellent in their aftercare back-up service. Both times initially, suggestions were given over the phone, (I live many hours from Perth) to see if the problems could be fixed. I also sent a video clip via the link on their site to assist in diagnosing the problem (this was very easy to do). As neither fault could be fixed over the phone it was recommended I drop it off at their service centre. Both times it was serviced under warranty in a very quick turnaround time. Thermomix also offered to organise the transport of my machine to Perth. Once again this is where a good consultant comes in handy with a box to lend for transporting of the machine. I was going to Perth at the time, so I am unable to comment on how smooth the transportation process is if sending by courier, organised by Thermomix. My experience with Thermomix "aftercare" has been excellent. As aftercare is a big factor in my decision of whether or not to buy an item I thought it worth letting people know that Thermomix have definitely stepped up on this occasion.

Can’t live without it
LOVE my thermomix! Makes life so much easier. Use it for so many things. The meals that come out of it are amazing! Haven’t had a bad meal yet.. the scales stopped working at one stage. They were promptly fixed by thermomix. Now would LOVE to get the tm6 :) would be good if they had a upgrade offer
Purchased for A$2,800.00.
I purchased my TM5 18 months ago and love it. I set the timer and go off and do other things knowing if I get sidetracked it wont burn, boil over or otherwise spoil. Like all recipes you pick and choose the ones you like. The food is tasty and perfectly cooked and making dough has never been so easy. The TM6 is out now, and I hear it is even better!!

Love ‘em or hate ‘em...I love ‘em!!
I’m continually amazed at the power of this product. I’ve had mine for about 2 years and it still surprises me.
I previously had a non-branded thermal cooker which was heavy and hard to clean and eventually stopped working after only a short time.
The possibilities are endless with the Thermomix. I can create a different cuisine every night.
It makes the smoothest purées and I love that it can spin the blades in reverse for cooking a casserole.
The only thing that annoys me a little is that sometimes it can be hard to scrape your mixture out if you’ve made say brownies or something with a thick sticky consistency.
Other than that, it’s like my sou chef!

TM 6 - Love it
I have had my new machine approximately one month now & I am loving it. With the Cookidoo built it and connecting via Wifi to my Internet, cooking is a breeze. I have had the TM 31 for 12 years - it has not missed a beat but thought I would upgrade to the new model. The recipes available on Cookidoo is phenomenal. Have the App on my phone, so that makes shopping a breeze for ingredients. So glad I have purchased the new model, I just love it.

Awesome all round machine
I have the thermomix tm5, to say I love it is an understatement!
I use my thermomix almost daily and since owning it it has changed my family’s eating habits dramatically.
I no longer buy jar or packet food as my thermomix makes everything from scratch!
Perfect if you have allergies and need a specialised diet you can mil your own grains or rice flour, you can be as adventurous as you want and make things that you never thought possible!
The Tm5 weighs/stirs/blends/heats and so much more, it has a great 2ltr capacity and cooks enough food for my family of 8
The price is quite high, but it has paid for itself in no time at all and I would be lost with out it

The only appliance you'll ever need.
Thermomix is amazing for chopping, puree..cooking and just general kitchen jobs!
So simply to use and cooks whilst you play with the kids come back and dinner is done!
Bowl does get quite hot whilst cooking but handle doesnt so easy to remove for the machine once cooking has finished.
Just amazing without the massive amount of effort and best of all minimal dishes!

I upgraded to the TM21 and I love it. I use it pretty much everyday. It saves so much time cooking and does it all for you. I've been using a Thermomix since 2014 and could not imagine not having one. It has pretty much replaced my pots and pans.
Worth the money!
I hesitated to purchase a thermomix for years due to its cost and as I was unsure as to whether I would use it that often.
We have had ours for a month and it has been used a minimum of twice daily. It is fantastic for quick mid-week meals and for making staples every family uses e.g. Jam, tomato sauce and stock paste. It’s also a dream for any cutting/ chopping that needs to be done. It reduces the number of dishes and enables you to clean up whilst things are cooking.
The meal planning function is fantastic, as is the bigger screen and intui...

Being Bullied by a consultant
I believe the item is very good and sells it self, so therefore the consultant should not bully anyone to buy the product. I was told to ask my husband, told everyone has bills to pay, just put it on interest free, I was told that she was informed that I would buy and that a friend of mine would be so disappointed and the bullying kept on going to try and get me to buy. If this is the type of consultants this company wants to represent the product then they need to have a service for the customers for therapy Be careful out there in Adelaide of bully consultants selling this Thermomix.
Best thing ever
My thermomix has axtually reduced my meal prep time by soo much and has just made a busy night so much less stressful. Im actually enjoying cooking again. I have the cook key al;so however this function is not the easiest thing to use

Absolute necessity in my life. Paid for itself many times over in savings
Amazing for cooking, salads, processing, milling, everything. Made my life so much easier. Love the flavour and creativity my themromix has added to our menu options. My only issue is that I want another one so I can get twice as much done in the short time I have each day to be in the kitchen.

Questions & Answers
Does anyone have a solution for a stuck button - the dough button is stuck in, it means that most of the buttons including the scales will not work. The unit will turn on and mix at any speed but obviously the functionality is considerably reduced.
From couple of weeks i have a TM6 version, today I had an occasion to use TM5, and I am surprised that TM5 has "Timer" option, and TM6 doesn't. (Function that is counting down time you set up). Or maybe I miss this somehow ?
Is there a reset function for a model 31-1. I used mine today and the weigh function is completely out of wack
