Since I tried the TM5, the Thermomix cult has established itself properly in the UK. I have relatives who say they have forgotten what it was ever like not to have one. Now there’s a TM6 and it’s several step changes more evolved. The original’s tiny screen has been replaced by a big, beautiful one and the internet connectivity refined to the point where you can get step-by step instructions to make 40,000 dishes. It is said to perform 20 cooking functions, and that’s no idle talk.
Thermomix is a little noisy, and you can’t dabble – you either take it on seriously or don’t touch it. But, as much as I liked it in 2015, it’s even more wondrous now.
