Welcome to the forum Chevvy.  Can't wait to read what you and your Wife think after the demo.

Welcome to the forum! I too spent many hours on here researching to see if it was worth all the hype/money.
It is.

Happy cooking!

Welcome to the forum. Like you I used to make my sauce in the time honoured way my mother taught me long ago but I have been making it in my Thermothingy for the past four years and I think it is even better than my mother used to make. Ok smaller batches but  that is fine. No storage problems!

Enjoy your Thermy. I know you'll buy one! Let's hope you can get one straight away.

Loved the demo today in Montreal...am now a proud owner of a TM31 with an extra bowl and 4 cookbooks!   :)

This is what we'll be cooking tomorrow:  zucchini soup (since zucchini is .99 a pound)  plus carrot curry coconut soup...since we have all the ingredients!

Thanks to all you nice replies and support...just getting the hang of blogging so I am a little slow learning how to reply...

Congrats Chevvy56. Great decision ;D Enjoy cooking in your new thermy. (You'll love the extra bowl too, makes cooking up a storm really fast and easy).

Yes the 3 batches of soup turned out great...and the cheese souffle....andthe dinner roll all in the same day...one bowl for the soup...the other for the souffle and the dinner rolls...was not sure to buy an extra bowl...cause it was already an expensive day.... :Dbut they were offering it for 300. dollars for that day only instead of the regular 400. dollars...plus the May special was 4 cookbooks instead of just the one that usually comes with the tm31....,very happy....Jean

Great to hear all went well, and you're putting both your TM bowls to good use already I see ;)
I waited 3 mths for the second bowl/blade set @ 1/2 price promo (if I had a demo) to get mine as I didn't want to pay full price for one
Aren't you pleased you did decide to go ahead and get your Thermie now?

Yes G.P. ,the second bowl really helps me to be more flexible when I do a recipe and save time,did surprise my wife last supper...used the Varoma for the first time;did a marinated steamed salmon,with zucchinni/carrots/mini corn veggies with a asparagus/mushroom risotto ...It all turned out great...but will not be doing my risotto in the bowl while steaming everything else in the steamer cause using the varoma setting while steaming the fish and the veggies perfectly the risotto is not supposed to be made at the varoma setting....oh well live and learn
