There is the advantage that the scales weigh in 1gm increments. I don't think I have ever had to weigh 3gms or 72gms of an ingredient but for all the wonderful bakers on the forum it may make a difference. Julie would be the best one to ask as she bakes great things and has the 6. You are able to access Cookidoo using the screen (which is larger). The biggest advantage is having the higher temp. As Julies photos and clear explanation showed, the onions browned well with pre heating the TMX. Also Julie had success with the fermentation mode in proving bread, I would be interested to hear more about that. The measuring cup fits securely and the spatula is flexible. Both of these items can be purchased and fit TMX 5. So really at the end of the day it looks like Julie has given us more insight than any of the demonstrations we have attended.

Thanks, Michele, all too true. In the end it all boils down to how you cook. I think the 6 is very good for someone just starting to cook with. TMX.  Or for people like Julie who are attracted to particular functions. I donít need the new small  measuring characteristic, nor the bread proving feature. Iím also not very good with the computer technology.  I keep asking as I hope there is a feature that would appeal to me. I think I am going to have to wait until TMX provide the ability to put our own recipes on the machine.  The service manager in Melbourne said it will happen as it is a software issue .  Not a major build with the machine. I doubt that it will happen as TMX likes to charge for you to use their recipes.  Iím very much against this in principle.

I must say that now I have used the TMX 6 a bit more, that I really like the 1gm incriments on the scales. DS told me it was more accurate but weighing things seems easier.

I wanted to try the sous vide function today using the simmering basket. Went to vacuum some chicken and my sealer has died. It's at least 16 years old. Finding another one in stock is proving a bit tricky.

I guess all the people who were stocking up bought them to freeze their stockpile.

I think you are right Cookie.
Last night made mushroom risotto for TM6. It's something I made reguarly using the 31 & 5. It used the high heat function for browning the onions and rice. It did add a depth of flavour. DH & I both thought it was just that bit nicer.

Thanks for that. I love to hear what you and JulieO have been doing with the 6.
