I use this most days

I purchased mine from a demonstrator about 15 years ago. I risked $300 for it, bag, varoma extra bits too. I love that it's mostly stainless steel as opposed to the newer ones. I've tried them all up to the 5 as my daughters have them but prefer my oldie goldie. Show details

It’s so bloody noisy!

Love the Thermomix for what it can do. My partner wouldn’t live without it. Me, as the recipient of the finished baking really appreciate what a fine machine it is ..... BUT.... I have no idea how this passed noise standards. If you live in a open plan kitchen forget it. You’ll end up separating. Seriously it’s a real problem. I carry the machine outside to the verandah to let it do its thing because otherwise you cannot have a conversation or watch TV. Otherwise you are in earmuff territory Show details

Love it

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.

Great machine

Great machine that can do almost anything. I know price point can be a sticking point to purchasing a thermomix, however it’s prefect for a small kitchen where counter space and storage is short. It’s means you don’t need to own 5 different appliances. If you have food sensitivities or are looking at additive and preservative free diet this machine is a god send especially if you don’t live in a major centre and have issues with access to alternative foods. The automated recipes make it so easy to use if you not a cook.

Ripoff

My machine has only been used a couple of times since purchase 3 years ago. I have not found enough recipes to warrant getting the machine out. The scales are unreliable and the plastic lid has already been replaced twice. I now find an 888 error which means I can throw this 2000 dollar appliance in the bin. I am soo annoyed and sorry I ever bought into this scam . Please think twice before forking out soo much money for such an inferior product. Shame Thermomix.

Easy To Use, Convenient

The Thermomix is great at combining multiple gadgets into one easy to use appliance. It's quite expensive but we got it as a wedding gift. If we hadn't I wouldn't usually purchase something from this price point.

The engineering of the product is immaculate and it's extremely easy to maintain, If I could recommend something it would be to lower the price point so other people can obtain the benefits of its use.

The greatest kitchen tool

Thermomix 8+ years of great service. Produced 100s of great meals, drinks and saved us 1000s of dollars by cooking good food at home. Never missed beat, easy and safe to use. Goes in the Caravan when we go away, because it's so versitile and takes up minimal room. Expensive to buy but it soon pays for its self in money, knowledge of food and preparation of good food. Easy to clean and new recipes and ideas always online if you need and idea for a meal.

How do I use the reverse function on my tm21, if there is one?

Many apologies - I am not at all familiar with this model - on my machine there is a button with an arrow turned back on itself - that is the reverse button - it is located on the lower right hand side of the machine...I hope this assists you....

The TM21 was two models ago (around the 1990’S I think) and didn’t have a reverse function...sorry!
