It certainly was nice! And Katj, that sounds like an endorsement to me.  :) I'm thinking I might as well go ahead and order it and the chip.

This one and its companion chip are now available here in the USA. As a vegetarian, I was thinking of buying it. Has anyone here cooked from it?  ??? It's tempting me sorely.

[...] thank you for the lovely words about the forum MacGuffin.
You're more than welcome. I'm glad that, after being a member all these years, that I finally have reason to be more active.

The 5 is definitely heavier. [...] Have you started your demos yet?
I'm relieved that I didn't imagine the increased weight! And no, not yet. My friends are mostly academics and the crunch is on to finish the semester and its attendant burdens (finals, posting grades, dealing with drama, etc.). So until everyone is able to take a breather, no demos. I do intend to practice at a friend's place when the time comes (my own place isn't appropriate). I'm kind of hoping her kids get involved, too. And one of my friends is a world-renowned food guy so, at an appropriate time, I'll mention that my training is done and ask if he'd be so kind as to pass that on to others of his buddies who might be interested. He thought this endeavor was a good idea.  :)

Gee that makes your job hard MacGuffin, do you have to take the ingredients for the demo too?
No, at least not in theory. We've been told to have the host/ess choose a menu, then to provide most of the ingredients from a list we provide. I imagine the consultants will need to bring at least a little something that's on the list. I'm also guessing, since we're not de jure Thermomix employees, that once we know what we're doing, we can be cut some slack in our individual demos, including ingredients.

I had to buy a TM5 in order to be a consultant but, with the exception of the Nokia-suggestive screen, I REALLY like my TM31. In fact, I specifically shopped for a TM31 when I could finally afford my Thermomix and plan to keep using the older machine at home and use the TM5 (which obviously, I'll need to know backward and forward) for demos . You've got an excellent machine and this is a nice forum.

All the best for your TM training!
Thank you so much! We underwent our training last Saturday and received our certificates. We have a cooking class this Saturday in two shifts and I'm hoping to see most of the new consultants at the one I'm attending. Everyone seems really nice and I'm hoping we can all be supportive of each other. I'd really like to see this wonderful appliance succeed here. I will say, though, that the TM5 seems noticeably heavier than the TM31. I went so far as to order a bag with wheels from one of the Canadian groups because most of us don't own cars here in NYC and that bag is just too heavy and clumsy to carry on the subway.  ???

Good luck, I hope it goes well for you. We'd love it if you kept in touch and let us know how things go.
Thank you, Cookie, and everyone else. I've been a member here for quite a long time but haven't been active. I resolved to be when I took possession of my TM31 but just wasn't able. I hope to be once I've completed my training. I'd like to see the Thermomix take off here. One thing I especially like is that we were told that the scale's units on the U.S. TM5s can be switched between standard and metric--nice for international recipes, especially with the new Cook-Key.

Guys, I start my consultancy training this coming Saturday in NYC! I'm very excited and the other folks who also attended the meeting seem really nice, as do Alexandra, Mitch, and the other Vorwerk folks in charge. Please wish us all luck--I'm very much looking forward to helping launch this wonderful appliance in my neck of the woods. ;D

Thanks, all. I'm off to visit my folks for a few days but will check back when I return. This is SUCH a nice group!

Guys, I've been a member for quite a long time but didn't participate much--or at all, of late--due to not actually owning a Thermomix. That situation was recently remedied! I finally scored (at least for starters) a new TM31, which is the model I've always wanted. Things have been pretty hectic, so I haven't had much of a chance to play with it yet but I know I'm going to love it. My "score" came with a lot of cookbooks, plus I'm amassing recipes and looking forward to adapting old favorites. I'm happy not only with my acquisition but that I'll have an excuse to participate here.  ;D

Were they sold by consultants? Does anyone know the story of Thermomix's short foray into the U.S. market?
