The Thermomix is one of those tools for German apartment living that has
made it everywhere else in the world except the US. Looking at the specs,
I'd say it is probably a solid product for non-industrial uses. It's not a
new idea, I inherited a 40 year old Ronson Cook n Stir Blender, but
Thermomix incorporates a couple more gadgets and has a pleasing design. I'm
not too hyped about the $1400 price tag (according to WSJ) and I have the
counter space for the KitchenAide, food processor and blender. When I
rework the kitchen in NM, I'll see about upgrading to commercial equipment.
I'd say the problem isn't one of design, it's the planning required to make
effective use of the features.
