I love you, I need you, I want you...

No, I'm not talking about RW or AK or any of my other objects of fantasy.

I'm talking about a kitchen gadget I was introduced to at Tetsuya's masterclass last week.

The Thermomix.

This gadget looks something like an oversized ice bucket sitting in the middle of a large plastic base. Nothing special really. But it's what it can do that makes it amazing.

This thing cooks and cools, so it can make risotto and ice cream. It whisks, blends, mixes, kneads, weighs. There is basically nothing it can't do (excuse the double negative).

Tetsuya used it to grind tea leaves to a powder so fine you could easily have snorted it, if that's the sort of thing you're into... snorting tea leaves.

Anyway, if anyone has a spare TWO GRAND sitting around which they would like to contribute to support my kitchen appliance habit please send all donations to ...

Sorry, I'm saving for my next Kitchen Aid fix.
Although I am intrigued by the image of snorting tea leaves.....

Kitchenaid appliances are so cheap over here. They also do fridges, ovens and cookware, gadgets. Sooooooooooooooooo cheap.

our across the street neighbours have one of these. they said it can do anything short of hanging out the laundry and massaging your feet.

but for that price i'd expect nothing less.
