I went to have a quick look at this last night but didn't have time to read it all. Just clicked on the link in the quote in Katya's post to finish reading it and I also got a virus warning. Strange that I didn't get one last night but now I have.

I love the idea of slow cookers and agree that they make great meals but I just cant bring myself to go out for the day and leave them on. Cant go out while the clothes dryer is on either for that matter. So I guess this just voids one of the major benefits of the machine. For the record I never browned anything either - just chucked it all in.

Hi Judydawn, Thanks for your warm welcome. By the way - when do you sleep?? It seems that whenever I read the recent posts you were on, had been on or went on not long after. You seem to really have your finger on the pulse with the TMX and I read with interest your comments and views on others' questions.

Introduce Yourself / I'm here at long last

Well it's been quite a task just to get this far. Let me tell you my story.....

A friend of mine phoned me just before Christmas and told me about this magical machine she had seen demonstrated. I proceed to make the appropriate noises and tried to change the subject but she banged on about it for a good 20 minutes. Now this might not seem strange to you but this friend of mine does not cook and in fact she detests it. She told me that after the first 10 minutes of the demonstration that she had made up her mind to buy the machine so I asked the obvious question....... How much did it cost???? Well never did I imagine that my friend would even willingly participate in kitchen activities, let alone spend that kind of money on what she used to call 'one of those gadgety things'.

At this point she invited me to a demonstration and having been a friend for many years, I felt obligated. So along I went and......................... after 10 minutes I too had to have one. So I ordered one and it arrived a week before Christmas - just in time to complete the festive offerings. In the week or so I waited for it to arrive, I surfed the internet and found this forum and thought I might join. Before I could do this I was swept up in the activities of New Year and the flooding (I am in Central Queensland). Finally I signed up in late January and waited for my email and ...... nothing. I tried to log in but no go. I requested new passwords, etc. and nothing. Prior plans then got in my way and I was off on holidays (almost 2 weeks in Thailand) and arrived back hoping there might be an email or that it had all sorted itself out - no such luck.

After two months of watching the goings on and not being able to comment, I was determined to get online. A new username and email and finally I am here. As for the Thermomix - I love it, my husband loves it and both the kids (teenagers) love it. We couldn't be without it now. Thanks goes to all those who contribute to this site as I have been reading and learning for the last few months, gathering recipes, hints, tips, suggestions and ideas.

Well that's about it for my introduction - see you on the forum.  :) ;D
