I love mine and when I saw the new Cookbook that comes with it  I knew that my DIL' dad who lives with them and does all the cooking would be whipping up great dishes in no time it's a joint present for the 3 of them

A FB group suggestion came up on my page to join 'Bellini Addicts' so I thought I would to get some recipes. Had to stop reading as I was smirking too much. Every post was about how to avoid the motor burning out (when making sorbets!!!!!!!), how to fix things or how long to blend things (5 mins for something that takes my TMX 20 secs!).

And the dig at the fact that only people who have a TMX are rich (we are low income, have a HCC and thank goodness for the TMX otherwise we wouldn't be able to afford to eat decent food).

Anyway, I am going to get off the group, but I would recommend anyone deciding which one to buy to go an check it out.........
I started my thermo cooking experience with a Bellini and I joined the addicts page 6 mths ago to learn all about it.  Membership has skyrocketed in that time, and I have made some lovely friends through the page. Quite a few of us have seen the light and now are TMX owners, we do keep a low profile now as we have found any mention of thermomix does create a bit of a cat fight. I still cannot understand the jealousy, envy and general bitchiness that surrounds thermomix, after all, it is my choice, after lengthy research, to spend my $$ on what I want. We are also low income (recently retired) also HCC but I wanted a machine that would last a lifetime.  The Bellini certainly wasn't going to do that.

Your comments are appreciated spikesmum, you certainly think like a TMX owner.  Without your Bellini experience though, you may never have become a TMX owner so it worked out well for you to use that as a stepping stone.

We all have to live within our budgets. If the Bellini is your dollar limit and you enjoy cooking with it then all is good.

Have what you want and want what you have.  :D

I'm also another that is an ex Bellini owner. If this product wasn't available at such an affordable level. I would never have bought a TMX. I was very sceptical as I loved to cook and was worried it would take the joy of cooking away for me. The Bellini allowed me to test the waters.

Like any group the Bellini addicts has its share of bitching. I never get involved. But there are on the other hand a lot of lovely people and whilst it started as Bellini owners there are a lot of different thermo owners including HMP.

All thermo cookers in one form or another.

I am a guilty ex-thermochef owner. Hated the bloody thing. Everything burned and stuck. Couldn't get rid of it quick enough!
I'm so glad hubby was able to see the light.

If it's all they can afford, I'd honestly say to just cook manually. That's how much I hated it.

That sounds like an honest opinion to me.  :-X

Ow, we don't have an Aldi in the West.  I guess it is a thermal cooker of some nature.

I hadn't seen the Aldi catalogue, but I just looked.  Made by Kuchef. It does have a 60 day money back guarantee and a 3 year warranty. Will be interesting to see how it pans out.
