Ha ha, yes some of us are still here Jenni but the forum is very quiet these days. Some of the old members pop in from time to time but there are so many TM owners who have blogs now that there is no shortage of recipes. In the early days the recipe books were terrible and it was hard to find a TM recipe online so when we discovered this forum we sort of took it over. It has never shut down but weíve been offline a few times for short periods until those who run it fixed the problem. Welcome back.

So excited to see you again Judy! Iím afraid I still have those old, horrible recipe books. In fact, I pretty much stopped using my TM a few years ago. Iíve just recently been thinking I need to start using it again though, Is the forum the best place for me to find tried and trusted recipes? Have you all still got your TM31s or have you all upgraded? My machine is 13 yrs old now. Have you ever heard of any that have died? How long do you think they last? Sorry for all the questions. You were always the person I remember best from on here xx

There are heaps of recipes on our forum many have tried and commented on which helps others. Quite a few upgraded to the TM5 and now the TM6 but some of us still only have the TM31. My life has changed so the early model is fine for me for the little I do cooking wise now. They say spare parts for the TM31 will not be available after 2024 so I put mine in for a service and part replacements so itís bound to last me as long as I need it. I havenít heard of any dying and some have kept it even though theyíve upgraded. The TM31 is a real workhorse. There are many great books available now but theyíre not really necessary when you can just google any meal you want and add Thermomix to the search.  If you have your mojo back then go for it Jenni.

Thank you so much for all that advice Judy. Itís been really helpful. I probably should put mine in for a service but I have my eye on a bright red Kitchen Aid. I donít have much bench space though so really need Thermie gone before I can get one.

Hello JenniCB and welcome back.
Iím one of the people that have upgraded. My 31 now lives in my caravan for when we are away. I have both a 5 and a 6 on my bench. I love the 6 and all the things it can do. I also keep my Matt Black Kitchen Aid on the bench.
There is so much available on line nowadays for the thermomix. The forum is still very special though.

Hi there Woerd, are you still a consultant over there? I think there are a few people who have kept all their machines as they upgrade but Iíve stuck with my TM31. Thanks for popping in.

Iím still lurking around this forum, was beginning to think everyone had left. Just upgraded to TM6 and gave the old 31 to our daughter. Finding my way around Cookidoo. Good to see your post.

Hi Hillbilly. Youíre going to love the 6 it can do so much.  It seems such a smooth machine compared to the 31.
