if you've been wanting a thermomix and been putting it off can i suggest you order it NOW?! I've just been told that the price is going up to over $1900 as of Feb 1.
(seems a little crazy to me, given the economic state and the price being the biggest turn off, but anyway....)
just DO IT! i promise you absolutely won't regret it! after all, who raves about their food processor and how much they love it? no one i know LOL and if you need the details for the other karen in canberra (ie: not me) who sells them just leave me a message or send me an email :)
