Hi Barry,

Great job on the cupcakes. Any chance of you posting the recipe you used, I'm assuming it's well and truly tested now??

Hi quirkycooking, are you able to provide the Green chicken cashew curry recipe?  I've had  a look on your blog and wasn't able to see it there either and it sounds like it would be lovely.

Well delivery of the TMX was last Thursday and so far we have made quite a few things including:
- Loads of orange juice
- Apple juic
- Blood orange sorbet
- Chocolate mousse (didn't set but the kids are still enjoying it)
- Hollandaise sauce
- Plain and lemon custard
- Lemon butter
- white and brown rice
- Banana cake

We've had a really busy weekend and I'm also battling a bad cold so haven't been able to do as much as I would have liked but so far so good, and the kids are enjoying playing around with it.

Reading through many of the posts I find it amazing how much some of you are able to whip up in a short amount of time, I'm finding it pretty fidely to get all the ingredients out of the jug, particularly with things like the cake mixture and think the kitchenaid would be much quicker but that just might be us getting used to it a bit more, and also finding it takes longer to clean than I expected, so all in all things are taking me longer to make.  Any tips on cleaning and bowl scrapping would be appreciated.

Well as I expected I bought one, just need to wait until it's delivered now.   ;D ;D ;D

The kids are very excited, I woke in a cold sweat at 2am wondering what I had done and DH hasn't really said much at all. 

Thanks for all the replies and I'll be looking forward to trying out some of the many recipes from this site. 

If anyone has tips for the beginner TMX family all help is appreciated.

Thanks again.

All I can say is WOW - what a response. Definitely don't think I'll let my DH see that one, might give him some ideas and he'll buy before we even have the demo!!!

The demo is tonight so chances are by this time tomorrow I'll have a new TMX!!  One question on the demo, should I be making anything for the guests - nibbles etc or is there no need with the food he'll be preparing.  I've got leftovers from Christmas in July on Saturday so could just put those out I guess??

Thanks again for all the responses.

Thanks to everyone for their fast and informative replies, you really are a great bunch of forumites.  While DH does a lot of the cooking these days he's really not confident of adventurous and the kids are  getting into cooking more now so I'm hoping this will help them out a bit and give me some more time to cook which I love doing.  One question from my son - can it make cornflake crackles (honey joys) for him??  These are his all time favourite to make but he gets worried about the hot butter mixture.

Thanks again for the comments

Hi all,

I'm a full time working Mum with 2 kids (14 yo girl and 9 yo boy) who loves cooking and loves cooking gadgets even more.  I've been looking at the Thermomix for a number of months after hearing about it on the Taste forum about 6 months ago and lurking in this forum for about the same amount of time.  I've booked a demonstration for Monday night,  my dilemma is while the product seems fantastic and I'll most likely buy one after the demonstration, I'm quite hopeless when it comes to willpower and am worried once I buy I'll regret it particularly given the price.  Did any of you feel this way before making the commitment or have you felt that way at all after purchasing?  I can't help thinking if the product really is as good as it seems then 1. it mustn't be true and 2. why if they are so popular in Australia are they not sold through shops rather than demonstrations????  I'm also a bit worried that a lot of the users seem to purchase and use them because of allergies, food intolerance's or wanting to cut out additives, and for making bread, I'm not in this position, and really while I love making bread I work long hours and my husband has to do a lot of the day to day cooking so I can't see myself being able to use this functionality very often.

Any opinions/comments would be appreciated.
