The Thermocook from Froothie - The darth vader of all cooking machines. With its shiny exterior and stainless steel interior it's like a modern day work of art - and it's nicely perched on my kitchen bench!
The first thing people ask when they see the thermocook cook is 'isn't that like a thermomix?' and i always reply 'Better!'.
Let me fill you in on some of the thermocook's awesome features:
The thermocook has 10 speed levels, 84 temperature levels, can heat separately without the motor working, and you don't need to set the timer before heating. The timer can be set in secs, mins and hours and you can adjust this to whatever you need up to 12hrs. A pause button that you can press if you want to check what you're making, then press again to continue the timer ( awesome for obsessed food checking people like me).
Its LCD screen make for easy reading and everything you need is on the one screen (see below).
The thermocook has 15 preset programs and 3 diy programs. These are great for someone, like me, who is a novice at using such a complex cooking machine.
What i love about the thermocook is its locking mechanisms, the screen shows me when the bowl is locked securely (see below) so i'm never guessing if the lids on properly (the machine will also not start if its not locked as well).
The thermocook comes with a recipe book with over 100+ recipes. Its a great book for a starter, but it doesn't have much of the foods i like to cook, so ive thrown myself into adjusting recipes i would normally cook (and its actually not hard at all). This is where the pause button comes into play. You just pause the cooking process and check you meal.
I've been busy since i've received the thermocook and have tested most of its functions out from steamed rice to lemon curd, chicken soup to chocolate sauce for my cake batter. When making bread with the thermocook i was able to remove the chopping blade attachment and insert the kneading attachment which took seconds, this gave a much result than other products on the market which do not have interchangeable attachments. The options are endless with this product. Whether you want to chop, whip, mix, emulsify, mill, knead, cook, blend, stir, steam or whisk this product will do it all and really change the way you approach food.
