should i buy a thermomix
should i buy a thermomix they are expenive?
I have just found out I can pay it off, which sounds good.
I love making soups and I think it would be great to make yogurt and sorbet.
I think it would be good to make chutneys .
And is it wise to buy on ebay?
Only you know if you should buy a Thermomix. They cost $1939 in Australiam and they are worth every penny.
No, please do not buy on e-Bay. You will be taking a risk. The best way to buy is to contact head office http://www.thermomix.com.au, fill out a form saying where you live and someone will come to show it to you or organise the sale for you if you've already seen Thermomix in action.
It sounds from your message as if you know how wonderful a Thermomix is and you're ready to talk to a consultant about methods of payment.
Good luck making your decision and welcome to the forum. Have a good look around while you are thinking. All the best and happy Easter.
Thanks alot Ros, have a happy easter too.
i can answer my own question now after reading lots of recipes.
yes i must get one quick, those recipes make me hungry and wanting to make them.
Hi Pa, I purchased mine off eBay with a lot of extras that I wouldn't otherwise have got and save approx $500. So questions to ask before purchasing from eBay though would be;
1 - is it an Australian model or an overseas model? If oversea does it include the adapter? (I ask this question this way to ensure I get the correct answer as some sellers were confusing the plug with the adapter. I was only interested in purchasing an Australian model as the overseas warranties are not supported here).
2 - How old is the machine? If it's still within the two year warranty period then at least you have the warranty support if something was to go wrong.
3 - Do they have the original invoice and can they send it to you with the machine? This just validates the age and warranty period.
4 - Why are they selling? The lady I purchased mine off just wasn't getting the use out of it that she hoped to.
As long as each of these questions can be answered to your satisfaction then there is nothing wrong with purchasing off eBay.
Having said that what I did notice is that a brand new Thermomix will cost $1939 inluding a free demo gift (changes each month) whereas secondhand units on ebay are selling anywhere between $1350 (if you're lucky) to $1950 (average price range $1700 - $1900). So not much of a difference.
I was ready to purchase new because even if I decided after 6 mths or so that I wasn't getting the use out of it to warrant the cost I knew I could sell it for close to what it cost so I wouldn't be too out of pocket.
The reason I ended up purchasing from eBay is because the right machine came up (I had been watching for over a month) at the right price with all of the extras that I would have purchased anyway.
Ultimately choice is your's which way you go but you won't go wrong either way. Good Luck.
I agree with Suoroma and Ros. It is your decision if you want to purchase and how you do that. I have heard some nasty stories about eBay and overseas purchases, where people can't claim things on insurance and unfortunately lose more than the money they had thougth they would save.
As a consultant I can tell you that I'm passionate about the product and the service I provide to my customers, both when thet wish to purchase and as follow up. I have often had people tell me that they are so glad they decided to purchase with a consultant because of the support they receive.
So I hope that no matter how you decide to purchase, that you get a Thermomix and join all the other owners who absolutely love them.
i have got my thermomix yesterday and had a demo, boy did we have fun. everyone was very interested in it, my grandson loved the chocolate custard which i made in the demo. i am still doing the happy dance around the kitchen.
Great outcome, Pa. Continue to enjoy it with your family. Just thought I'd let you know that for the next six weeks, Thermomix is offering interest free finance, so if your friends admire your Thermomix, let them know. Cheers. Happy Thermomixing!
Ros, intrest free is a great idea.
our friends that came to my demo are buying a thermomix that way.
I do a happy dance every day now I have my TM.
I can't believe I am happy to whip up a last minute dessert @ 9:00pm. It is just no trouble at all
FYI Interest Free deal total costs works out to be $2200.
Normally the interest free is actually lower than that at approx $2070. Going by what was mentioned above, that gives you an additional $130 to play with
