Let me start by saying I've got an excellent Kenwood mixer/processor/blender and a myriad of attachments.  I also have a slow cooker.  When I heard about this new amazing continental thing called a Thermomix or the local equivalent of a Kcook by Kenwood, I was interested to find out how these things could 'revolutionise my kitchen'.

Both of these consist of a heated bowl which can chop, blend and heat at the same time.  The Thermomix costs about £800.00 and the Kcook about £200.00.

I've spent quite a while looking at the recipes and I don't really get the time saving angle of it.  You still need to be there to put the stuff into the thing.  You might have one less pot to wash but that's it.

Am I missing something?

My Spanish student, who runs a food blog, got a Thermomix and said it actually did revolutionise the cooking - it produces things more quickly, apparently. I've never used one but I did mention it on FB and people who have one raved about it.

I suspect after investing best part of a grand on a kitchen gadget, you'd have to rave a bit...

Yes, that's very true.
