Thermomix Demonstration

Hi Mrs Woog,
Am having a thermomix demo at my house thought it would be fun to blog on???
Are you interested ?
Next Mon at my house 12noon sharp (so says demo lady)
Let me know

Hi B,
Sounds hideous.
I will see you there

In my neck of the woods, the Thermomix is the new Bugaboo. You simply must have one or your whole family will rot in hell and it will all be your fault because you did not feed them whole foods. Same if you do not have the latest colours in Tupperware or the new knee length boots from Country Road. You are a total loser dude.

Thermomix will amaze you with its ability to chop, beat, mix, whip, grind, knead, mince, grate, juice, blend, heat, stir, steam and weigh food. No wonder it has earned the title – the world’s smallest, smartest kitchen! And if you do not have one, how will you ever swap recipe ideas at the bus stop with the other mums? And they will sneer at you standing there with your store bought bread. Loser.
I went along and gave myself an hour. I mean I cannot stand anything more longer than an hour. It is my general intrinsic clock that keeps me moving.
Our host gave us a champers and our demonstrator lady turned out to be a school mum. And this school mum LOVES her Thermomix. She takes it away on holidays with her. It took me just seconds in this room of women for me to realise that I was the only one who was not making home made bread. Or ice-cream. Or Jam. Fuck.
What do I do all day?
And I did not know that you could use the Thermomix to convert raw sugar to icing sugar, or that store bought icing sugar had actually been bleached and could kill you!
So I sat through a bit of the presentation. The enthusiasm was infectious I could not help but get a bit excited about it! I mean, this machine does everything. And even cleans itself. I am a marketers dream and am so often lead down the consumer path skipping merrily with my VISA card waving in the air. I am going to buy a Thermomix goddam it!
But something was nagging me a bit.
In my kitchen I have a grater, a chopping board and a few pots. Our demonstrator explained that this machine will replace our bread makers, ice cream makers, rice cookers, pressure cookers, slow cookers, scales, mix masters and steamers. Which is great, but I had none of that stuff to begin with.
But I can totally TOTALLY see why this is a necessity for a cooking, foodie loving lass. If I could cook I would use it for sure.
And to our sister’s over the bridge, The Eastern Suburbs Mummy Mafia, listen up ladies. You will not FIND a better appliance to chop down your coke. Plus you can make brownies and risotto!
In conclusion, I think I will think about maybe considering purchasing a Thermomix. But as Mr Woog has said, would I prefer a Thermomix or put the 2 grand towards a trip to  Italy?
And for me, travel trumps tagliatelle every time.

Do you have a Thermomix?
