As you can tell from the name, it took me some time to fall in love with my Thermomix. A long time.
Like everyone else I was excited to receive my TMX. This was going to be amazing. I was going to change the world with this machine and it would somehow warp me into some Nigella Lawson like super mum. Wrong! My machine arrived just as morning sickness with my third pregnancy kicked in so cooking quickly became a dreaded task, even with this amazing super mum creating machine (Spoiler alert: even when morning sickness passed I still didn’t love it. Couldn’t blame the pregnancy for that one).
As many of my friends know, I really struggled to see the benefits of the machine over the next 6 months. Everyone else was loving their machine and I was that crazy person who wasn’t seeing how great it was, who wasn’t referring to it as their fourth child and sleeping with it at night.
I tossed up whether it was time to cut my losses and make some money back by selling it.
