Thanks for the reply.  I've bid on one on eBay, so we'll see what happens.  It's a model from Canada, so I won't have any language or warranty issues.  I have some special projects in mind for it;  maybe I'll be able to contribute some recipes to the forum Smiley  If I win the bid, I should have it towards the end of next week.

Here's a picture of my kitchen :)

Recipe Requests / Re: ISO (in search of) a recipe to make my own pasta

Sounds like your dough was way too dry.   You can find my recipe at  The amount of liquids can vary with the flours you use.  I use half all purpose and half semolina.  For eggs, I usually use extra large (I know the standard for recipes is large.... ).  If you find that it's still too dry, you can add some water. 

Maybe you should post the recipe you used, might give us an idea what you did wrong.

Hi guys, very helpful and friendly forum you have  ;D  I don't own a Thermomix, yet.  Vorwerk seems to have avoided the US market for some reason as there is only one distributor, and so far, I've found only one rep, in "Upstate" NY.  No demos to be had.  So, here, you have to be in the know and search one out.  I was "aware" of them, but had never seen one until a recent visit to Montreal.  A gourmet shop there had one on display, but the next scheduled demo would be 5 days after we returned home (about an 8 hour drive).   It's a lot of money to spend on something without ever seeing one in action, but my wife suggested I research it a bit :)

Cooking has been my hobby for some time now.  I have a web site at which I use as my personal cookbook.  I do a lot of breads with a no-knead method, and I love soups.  Make all my own stocks and pasta.  My hesitation about buying a Thermomix is that I want to make sure it adds something to my kitchen and doesn't just end up taking space.  I already have a Vita-Mix so the blender functions don't mean much to me.  I already have a Paco Jet, so I'm not interested in ice creams, sorbets, or gelato.  I am curious about making risotto; adding all the liquid at once runs contrary to the way I've learned.  Sounds great to be able to make a sauce without stirring.  I'm intrigued by making soups in the one vessel, so here I am, joining your great forum.
