It’s almost too good to believe: one appliance that can do everything. But it’s true! The Vorwerk Thermomix measures, chops, grinds, kneads AND cooks your food for you, while you relax. This German-made multitasker is all the rage in Europe, with many top chefs using them in their kitchens and writing cookbooks specifically for it. I was skeptical when I first heard about it, but after looking online and reading reviews, I’ve come to covet the Thermomix, or at least see it in action myself. Problem is, it’s not readily available here in the US (as mentioned in this Wall Street Journal article and this one in the New York Times), and it’s not available online or in stores, only through licensed Thermomix representatives. Bummer. Guess I’ll be making a trip to Canada soon, since you can get one much more easily there. Can any readers with experience chime in? I’m dying to know! –Megan B.
