I literally could not be more cliched if tried.
I live in the suburbs.
I have two kids.
I like to bake and knit and sew in my spare time.
I can throw back a white wine faster than you can say, “I only like Chardonnay if it’s off the oak.”
And I desperately desperately want a Thermomix. You could say, I’m burning for one, but it might be too soon for that joke.
Speaking of third degree burns and Thermomix and suburban cliches, there’s a wee bit of a kerfuffle over the German engineered kitchen voodoo machines.
But look what you can make with a thermie. YOU CAN COOK A WHOLE CHICKEN IN ONE. Post continues after video…
Some of the older models have a faulty seal and have allegedly caused terrible burns when the lid has exploded off.
To add further fuel to the Thermomix fire, reports have suggested the manufacturer have refused to issue refunds unless owners sign confidentiality agreements – a gag order.
CHOICE, Australia’s consumer watchdog, have opened a case and plan to make a mass incident report to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission. (Although, I can’t help but note that in an article in the December issue of their magazine, CHOICE did rate the Thermomix first for all-in-one kitchen machines. Hashtag JUST SAYING.)
Things are getting hot under the collar over at Vorwerk, we reckon.
But despite that, there is nothing that can extinguish the fire in my heart for a Thermomix.
Not the $2089 price tag. (Ouch)
Even Bachelor Tim loves a freakin’ Thermomix, guys. Post continues after video… (And if you’re a thermofreak like me, the whole video recipe is at the end of the post)
