Just what every office needs - next to the water dispenser?

Re: bimby

I was lucky enough to be given one of these as a present which was good as I know they are very expensive.

I've used it for everything from making smoothies, risottos, bread dough, grinding granulated sugar to icing sugar, perfect bechamel sauces every time, moussaka, soups. The list goes on and in fairness to it I don't think I use it as much as I should or could.

However, my husband really doesn't like the thing as he prefers the more conventional method of cooking (oven and hob).

But the great thing about it is that you can chop your ingredients in it and then cook them in the same machine while it stirs for you. So I've been able to leave it cooking dinner while I look after two kids.

The UK Thermomix website is here http://www.ukthermomix.com/index.shtml. Just take a look at the recipes to get an idea of all the lovely things you can make.

Re: bimby

Bechamel, risotto, coleslaw........but I can make these things too! And I don't have a Spermomix!!!

Is this *thing* trying to make a pair of hands obsolete....??
(Er...I mean in the kitchen of course)
