A good machine that compares with the best

5 out of 5, reviewed on Oct 22, 2017

This biochef mycook is excellent value for money compared with the overpriced Thermomix and cheaper alternatives like the Bellini. I paid only $798 from vitality4life. I love induction cooking on the stove so I’m glad the Biochef is induction as well. Online recipes from other mixers have adapted well in general. It’s been a great investment for me. My only negative feedback would be that I haven’t yet figured out if/how the blades can be easily reversed a lot of thermo recipes are set to reverse. I’ve just been using the mixing insert or using speed 1 and it’s worked out ok. Very happy customer!

Very Good Machine

4 out of 5, reviewed on Jun 26, 2017

This is a great all round machine. It is robust and doesn't miss a beat. Recipes from other like products are easy to transfer to this one and I have had success with most of them, first time. It is quieter and more powerful than the Bellini I replaced this with.

I am happy with most recipes I have tried.

3 out of 5, reviewed on Mar 27, 2017

However, I haven't used it as much as I thought. Perhaps in winter I will make more soups and caseroles. Cleaning. Even when I remove the blade I have to check no food is caught in the stem part, otherwise the jug is easy to clean. Would like a better selection of recipes. I have adapted a few from other machines. In fact making some steamed pork and mushroom balls tonight which I have made before and were delicious.

Has some good applications

3 out of 5, reviewed on Feb 21, 2017

I only gave it a 3 star as I find the lid difficult to press on, in fact I have to place it on the floor to allow enough pressure to press on, the same with the steamer. I followed the recipes out of the recipe book, but found things were burning on the bottom. I rang Vitality4life and they suggested different heat settings and times which helped. I also find the recipes use very large quantities of oil. Now for some positives, its great it has the scales for weighing. I like steaming vegetables, rice cooks well, makes great hollandaise. My real suggestion that would love, is for a better recipe book or an alternative source for some recipes.

Great

4 out of 5, reviewed on Feb 21, 2017

I've really enjoyed my Bio! It's easy to use with comparable function of the competitors at a fraction of the cost. Even has a superior heating element and stainless steel steamer. It clear a easily and does all I need-grind spices, mill almonds, cook, steam and knead etc.

The machine can be noisy at high speeds like similar products and I don't love the scales for weighing things like flour. They can skip and jump especially if u knock the jug whilst weighing. I also prefer to make cakes in my stand mixer as larger quantities can become gluggy in the Bio. Still do all my prep in it though

Very happy for price point

Best All-in-one cooking machine ever.

5 out of 5, reviewed on Nov 23, 2016

I used to be the worlds worst cook. I was that bad, I could burn water. With the MyCook I can't go wrong. Cooking by numbers and following the cook book is so easy and the food tastes amazing. I would pay double what I paid off The Home website.

I love my MyCook

5 out of 5, reviewed on Jan 10, 2016

I have tried other thermomachines and they are great but the MyCook is even better... I finally made a mayo that just worked with the MyCook. The recipe book is easy to follow. I love the stainless steel rice basket and steaming tray. I love that it makes a beautiful spaghetti bol without having to cook the mince in the rice basket. Its a hard working quality product.

The perfect all in one. I can not live without!

5 out of 5, reviewed on Nov 27, 2015

The Biochef Mycook, is the perfect all in one machine.
It is so simple to use, quick and easy.
I love that it measures with the scales & I have used it so much, I find I don't need recipes & can make up my own.
Even though I absolutely love to cook & create in the kitchen, being a new mum & not having the time on my hands like I used to, this has been a godsend.
Now if only I can make it precook by itself before I'm home from work.

Perfect risotto every time

5 out of 5, reviewed on Nov 05, 2015

I am so pleased with the my cook. It really is as simple as making the recipe as per the instructions. It cooks a perfect risotto every time. Not only that, but I've learnt how to use mine so well that I swap ingredients and have started doing my own recipes. I just follow the base guide and off I go! Such a time saver.

I love the Biochef, however, I would love it even more if there were simple day to day recipes available for it, while there are many tasty recipes, it's the simple day to day ones that are missing. For an idea have a look at what Thermomix offer. The Biochef is certainly a better machine mechanically but sadly the recipe range is quite limited when compared to the competition and there is not a single conversion calculator online to make conversion between the 100W Thermomix recipes compatible with the 120W Biochef. If not better recipe support, how about just a switch so that users can select 100W rather than 120W and at least in that way one setting would be compatible with the much more popular Thermomix. Now I know how Pepsi feels chasing Coke.

Chris B asked on Feb 05, 2018

Answer this

There is another one called Optimum Thermocook which is very similar to the Biochef. I downloaded their recipe book online free, there are over 100 recipes and I found it fairly easy to work out the process and timing. I agree that the selection of recipes is extremely poor. It is called another name overseas (can't remember the name) and I found a few other sites with recipes. I haven't used mine for a while but come winter it will be.

Thank you Raylee. Your advice is great and I thank you for the time you have spent writing it. Sadly it's the same problem, while BioChef has some very fancy recipes in their book and online PDF recipe book they are hardly the day to day food that people live on, at least not working class people who have better or at least more important things to do than cook a gourmet meal. The only weakness in this fine machine is that almost everything in the cookbook can be cooked quicker using traditional cooking methods and many require the use of an oven. All I want are some simple recipes for day to day cooking, simple curries, chicken dishes, things to go with rice or mashed potatoes. Sadly it looks like an issue I will have to work out myself. What a pity I did not spend an extra thousand dollars for a Thermomix and their brilliant support network. Nar, I'll keep the grand and just put the effort in working out how to use the BioChef in a Thermomix world.

I completely agree Chris B. It’s like they haven’t bothered to try and compare to Thermomix. The basic recipe book provided is useful somewhat but I make almost all recipes up myself or I use thermomix online community. A majority of my recipes have adapted very well. I have only had a couple of hiccups. I often think I could sell this machine for bio chef in WA and publish my recipes as there is very little support for owners.
