Good to hear that it did arrive and quite early too!

It looks well settled in to your kitchen already - and it looks lovely and new and shiny.   

Enjoy your adventures as you wander into the wonderful world of Thermomix  ;) ;)

Thank you all for your good wishes!  Leesmac, yes that is indeed a Kenwood 'lurking' and in fact there is a Magimix beyond that and a large set of scales (of which I have 2 sets) and a Bamix blender the other side of the TM.  It is all taking up a lot of work space and I am beginning wonder if I need all this stuff now ...

You would be quite right there Julia - most of us have ditched a lot of appliances as you will see here.

Am afraid I am a little like Thermomixer - a hoarder!  However, I have decided to get rid of my breadmaker, asparagus steamer, rice cooker, one of the two sets of scales and the couscousier and I think that will be as ruthless as I can be :'(  I would have included the electric hand whisk, but DH wants to keep it so that he can get lumps out of his sauces.  The Bamix, Magimix and certainly the Thermomix, he finds intimidating  ;D

What a shame, nothing easier than sauce with TMX.
DH made cookies favorite quiche tonight, I m sure it won't be long before yours masters TMX for his sauces.

I can understand that, we had a Magimix and really only used it for making puréed baby food and that was it. We gave it to my wife's sister this year as it had been collecting dust for nearly 4 years. We didn't cook the sort of things you'd use it for, now the TMX has turned that around :)

I have held on to my rice-maker as we very occasionally use it if we are using the Thermomix to cook something and are steaming veggies at the same time....  and I have a handheld beater for cream and egg whites and an ice-cream maker, but otherwise I don't use any electric gadgets other than the Thermomix

Thank you Frozzie.  Made a Jamie Oliver recipe tonight which I adapted for TM.  Will add it tomorrow.

Hi Tarasis
I couldn't be without my Magimix, mainly because anything I eat has to be without meat or fish, DH is allergic to cheese and DD hates anything in the slightest bit spicy.  We have to make different or adapted meals all the time and the Magimix enables us to do this.  Ideally we should have 3 TMs :-)

Hi Katya

I bought the steamer for DH as his rice is not up to much even though I taught him how to make it the conventional way.  However, he only ever used it twice and went back to his old ways of cooking bad rice in a saucepan  >:(

Thanks Cream Puff.  I will try adding one tomorrow along with the recipe for tonight's meal.
