Thermomix home demo

I’ve blogged a bit about my new Thermomix  recently. What I didn’t tell you was that the demonstrator talked me into having my own home demo.

I’m not normally into this sort of thing and freaked out a bit after reluctantly accepting, but we had it last Saturday and it turned out really well.

After wondering who on earth I could invite, I actually ended up with 6 people—3 neighbours and 3 friends.

I was happy to hand the kitchen over to the demonstrator who came equipped with most of the food and individual serve bowls; all I had to do was provide a few simple food items, some large bowls and a bag of ice cubes (for the sorbet).

We were treated to a varied menu, showing just what sort of things the Thermomix can do:

Strawberry sorbet
Herb & garlic dip
Bread rolls
Beetroot salad
Mushroom risotto
Lemon custard

I received a really useful present for hosting the demo—a double-walled (hence insulated) stainless steel serving bowl, which can be used to keep food hot (e.g. risotto) or cold (e.g. sorbet).

Everyone seemed to have a good time and left happily replete with tasty food and it looks like there will be at least 2 more Melbourne households sporting Thermomixes on the kitchen bench (did you know there are 17 million Thermomixes in use in Italy alone?).

So far, in my Thermomix, I’ve made:

Pumpkin soup
Bread rolls
2 loaves of bread
Ice cream
Lemon butter
Beetroot salad (3 batches, would you believe—I love it)
Steamed brown rice
Vegetable soup
Beef casserole

    I made biscuits in the solar oven yesterday… I said to Evan15 that I wished my Thermomix was here.. the dough would be mixed up in 2 seconds flat!
    (I like the idea of the high tech being used in the same recipe as the low tech.)

    You will LOVE the functionality of the Thermo Server — it’s a great vessel that will get much use, for sure. People covet them and they are not easy to get so I say “right on!”. Fun to read your list of things made in Thermomix… I always enjoy seeing how people in other countries make use of this super kitchen machine 😉

      Hi Helene, thanks for the comments.

      I’m liking the Thermomix more and more. And I’m only doing simple things at the moment. Certainly don’t regret buying it!
