    The Thermomix is a$1,500 appliance known for making fantastic risotto-with no stirring required. But the $100 Instant Pot can easily make risotto as well, so how do they compare?

I don’t know but I think I missed something in this video? The Insta pot only took eight minutes and you did a lot less plus you didn’t have to pour the dish into a bowl and then serve it on your plate. The Thermo mix although it does the work of many of your appliances, does not beat in this comparison because it took more than 12 minutes to make the meal, and there were so many extra steps that you had to take like taking some of the ingredients out of the pot to make it cool

I have owned a thermomix since 2010 (TM31) and just bought a Philips All in One Viva (I got a stainless steel insert separately so can replicate the cooking environment of the Ins). I am also Italian, so I feel qualified to comment on the comparison. The Thermomix  is fantastic and it handles things other food processors can't (it holds a certain temperature reasonably well) but I would *never* recommend it for a risotto. Back when I was in the market for one, you had to endure a demonstration of how to cook in the TM and one of the big claims to fame at the time was how well the TM does risotto. Sorry, but I have to say that if you 'know your risotto' like a northern Italian does, then even from the videos you can see that it does not do an adequate job. It does look clumpy and mushy in the video and indeed that is my experience too. I realised after a number of tries that this is inevitable as the TM has remarkably sharp blades, which damage the grains and release the starch within the grain. However, the InstaPot risotto was spot on. Very impressed. Please don't buy a TM just because you love risotto - the TM is amazing at other things but risotto isn't one of them, as by design it simply can't work.

Just because your Nationality is Italian does “not give you any right to be able to comment over anyone else’s nationality.” This is about the ‘machine and how it cooks a meal.’ Italians have nothing to do with that shit or that process. Stop being a racist.

I own both appliances and if I had to choose one, I'd go with the Thermomix in the heart beat due to its multi functioning. I've been a thermomix user for several years, you can literally live without a stove if you have Thermomix. Those 2 appliances are not comparable at all. I don't own Kitchenaid mixer (aprx.$450), or blender ($100), or bread maker ($100), or scale ($20), meat grinder ($200), coffee grinder ($20), food processor ($100-$200), food steamer, or piles of cooking books. The list can go on and on. My Thermomix has replaced all of those appliances and if you do the math, its actually priced really well considering the time you save on chopping and stirring that you don't have do when cooking with Thermomix. Also, every little part is made in Germany (not China), you can't kill this machine.

Makes no sense, because it the instanpot is 1/10th the price and you did 1/10th the prep/wait time. Just because you can do more things with the Thermomix doesn't justify the price tag. $1500 divided by $15 equals 100 meals out. Sorry, but with your "logic", which only consists of it can do more, I will never watch you or this channel again.

Its not fair to compare those 2 appliances, they are completely different and serve different functions in your kitchen. I own both and I can assure you the Thermomix is worth every penny. Not only the quality of the actual machine that's made in Germany doesn't even compare to InstaPot, but it also pays itself off within months (if you use it of course). You can't kneed, blend, chop, weigh, whisk, grind, steam, emulsify and do so much more with your instapot. Don't judge something you never had a chance to experience.

I must have missed something. Chop up ingredients. Sauteed and pop lid on Instant pot for 8 mins. Cooked to perfection. Less that $150 V Thermomix at $1500 which had you tied to the device for the duration, and much more work to it. Grate cheese, put in bowl, do onions put in bowl, do bacon put in bowl, do rice, then add this that and the other. There is a very clear winner here. Even if you went to the store and paid extra for the grated cheese, chopped onions etc over 5 years it would still not cost as much as the overpriced thermomix.

I bet you can't grind your own granes to make flour and kneed a dough in 2 minutes using your instapot. I use to think the same way until I purchased my Thermomix. Money was a huge turn off for me as well, but you can't compare it to any other appliance in your kitchen, you can only put all your appliances together, calculate how much you paid for them all and then compare it to the cost of Thermomix. I cook a lot and I love doing it using one appliance instead of having my counters filled with mixers, grinder, food processors, scales, etc.
