    Is this the best price for a Thermomix in Australia? How do I buy a Thermomix?

    I was asked by a friend to find her the best Thermomix price in Australia as she really really really wants and must have one, I thought must haves were air, water and food, I was wrong! I've looked at the Australian Thermomix website: Thermomix - The World's Smallest, Smartest Kitchen they want you to fill in loads of forms to get a home demonstration and don't tell you the price.

    Best I've found is a German website that delivers to Australia, they have it listed as AU$1,350.00Price includes VAT, plus delivery

    Delivery weight: 15 kg

    I've seen the average Australian price is: $1939 - as long as delivery from Germany isn't $600, i doubt it would be and is there tax in Australia for import?

    Figured I'd add the article here, very interesting!

    There is a lot of hysteria surrounding the Thermomix, but is it really worth the money? The MamaBake community told us the good, the bad and the ugly.

    Even though it has been around since the 1960s, Karen and I only stumbled across the Thermomix along our MamaBake journey fairly recently. I don’t own one and this is NOT a sponsored post.To get an honest review, we started a thread on MamaBake Facebook asking Mums who own a Thermomix to tell us honestly what they thought of it. We had a fantastic response with a great range of answers. We asked that no consultants comment so that those who were genuinely curious (and had the coin) could make an informed decision based on genuine feedback.
    What is a Thermomix?
    The Thermomix is a kitchen appliance that combines the functions of 10 appliances in one unit: they chop, beat, mix, whip, grind, knead, mince, grate, juice, blend, heat, stir, steam and even weigh food.
    Contrary to popular belief that it is a new, whizzbang gadget, the Thermomix was launched in Germany as a food processor in the 1960s. After many years of innovation, it found its way onto the Australia market in 2000.
    How much do they cost? Around $2,000

    The results

    The response was overwhelmingly positive, with many users praising the product's time-efficiency in making daily cooking easier and faster. We heard from mothers with one or more little children who swear by it, praising how they can chuck in the ingredients and it will chop and cook and stir while they tend to their small children, instead of battling between stove and lego.Many women also praised the pre-purchase demonstrations, in which a quality consultant gives recipe ideas, tips and hints, and offers cooking classes to make sure new owners get the most out of their Thermomix.
    Fiona has one and she says:
    “The best money I ever spent, it took me two years from seeing it at a demo to being able to purchase one but it was definitely worth the wait. It is so easy that my 11 year old has been using it! I have made so many things that I would have never tried before because I thought they were too hard but they were super easy with my Thermomix. It is so quick that I can get up an hour before school and still make a batch of cinnamon scrolls and an Anzac slice for coffee at our school assembly!”

    It would seem that it really is worth the money for those families with food intolerances, allergies and who require specific diets.
    As Katrina says: “(It) saves me a tonne of money on things like specialty flours (spelt etc) as I buy the grains & mill myself not paying the ridiculous prices you do at health food stores etc for flour that is already rancid. I make dairy free milks (rice, almond & quinoa) without the $4-$8 price tags for 1 litre & can make everything else from scratch with minimal effort required which is a godsend with young kids & a business to run. No packets in our house, less stressed mummy with more time to make nutritious healthy food with minimal fuss. It’s a lifestyle choice I wouldn’t be without!”
    Carmen has been using one for years and now has two for her family of between six and nine at any one time:
    “Best appliance in our kitchen. Our weekly grocery budget is $150 and for that we feed anywhere between 6 and 9 family members at a time! Plus we are mostly organic and vegetarian. Packaged food is almost non existent and everyone knows how to make bread. Half our household has food intolerances as well! The children can all use it to cook and it saves on time by doing much of the process without having to stand in the kitchen! We’ve had one for three and a half years now and a second for the past two.”


    The downsides?

    On the flip side, other women found the Thermy noisy, it’s capacity restrictive, a bugger to clean and expensive. Other owners were dubious they were using it enough or properly to get their money’s worth.So if I was to buy a Thermy, does that mean I can dispose of the food processor, the ice cream maker, the bread machine, the flour grinder, the grater, whisker, juicer and scales?

    Yes, but...



    1. Do we even have all those appliances to replace anyway? And do we use them all enough to justify the price tag of a Thermomix?

    “Is it still worth its $2000+ price tag when you already own every other appliance known to man? Most women already have a slow cooker, food processor, bread maker, ice cream maker.” Maxine
    “I have had a Thermie for just over a year. I love it BUT I do not use it to its full potential. It is mostly used for making mango sorbet or smoothies by the kids. I use it for chopping/ grinding but still use a grater or food processor for grating/ fine slicing as you can do it in the Thermie. We use the Kenwood mincer for mincing meat and the Mixmaster for baking. I make sauces in the Thermie and custard, soups. I steam veggies & puddings in the steam attachment but find with 6 of us it is just not big enough to make a complete meal in it.” Shiralee

    2. Could we not save the money by just doing that ourselves with a bit of good, old elbow grease?

    As Tenille says: “I can't justify spending that much on a machine. I’ve managed so far without it. My sister makes everything from scratch, organic, vegetarian, and she’s never needed an expensive machine. I can make everything it makes, just might take longer and I don’t have to spend $2000. I have more important things to spend that money on.”


    3. What of the soul of cooking? Or, is it a labour saving device that should be held up as the 21st century Liberator of Mothers from their Kitchen (meat) Balls and Chains?

    As one mother said: “I love the romance and process of cooking, like the gentle “clunk” of the wooden spoon on the pot. I have never used it (her Thermomix) again.”
    Or Sarah:
    “I tried the food/went to a party. Found the idea great, fabulous for people who can’t cook, or have no time, but didn’t like the taste of the food that much (I’m a total foodie) and found the food really soulless. My dad used to stand over his cooking for hours and his food was amazing, even with the tight budget we were on as kids. I want them (my kids) to SEE somebody cooking their food.”
    The findings

    Does the rise and rise of the Thermomix say more about how we value our time? That we are so time poor we are prepared to spend serious money in exchange for more time to do other things in life? I mean, that’s also a part of what MamaBake’s all about – more free time for Mum (except I bet you don’t get the laughs with a Thermomix like you do with your MamaBaking sisters!).One thing is for sure, most of those that have one, swear by it and wouldn’t trade it in for nutt'n:
    “I’ve owned mine for nearly four years and would grab that before my husband if the house was on fire” Rhonda.

    Red face Consultant details and a love affair with Thermie :-)

    Hi Shopoholic - I am a consultant in Hobart, Tas but I can get you referred to a good and your nearest consultant in Melbourne without having to fill in lots of forms which you do on the website - email me your name address and contact number and I will get onto it straight away. That is the best way to go to see it for yourself!

    Just be aware when you buy one from overseas or links on this page, that you won't be eligible for generous host rewards and ongoing customer specials nor do you get a chance to see the thermomix in action, which really needs to be seen to be believed, the functionality and quality is amazing. You also don't get a 6 course meal cooked for you at home - During a demo (which is no obligations), we cook 6 dishes, talk and show you the functionailty, show you how to save money so the thermomix can pay for itself within 12 months easily, how it can help you avoid processed food additives, and how best it could fit into your life and your style of cooking ie individual attention etc - not to mention a consultant to guide you through your journey to make sure you get the most out of your thermomix - I know someone who bought one this way and there's sits in a cupboard as they don't really know how to use it properly or have inspiration to do so :-)

    Hope this helps and any questions, feedback positive or negative most welcome :-) I love my thermie and use it 3 times a day juices, snmoothies, scones, butter, peanut butter, icecream, steamed salmon, soup rice casseroles, cake mixes, porridge, bircher muesli - cuts down the prep time, hands on cooking time (as does the kneading/cooking stirring for you) and it washes itself up :-)

    Thank you for adding the information ThermoGen, very interesting about the extras for buying it in Australia, as I'll admit I don't watch cooking shows and had never heard of them before they were mentioned on here. I've seen a few videos online and I'd admit I'm quite interested!
