Thermomix TM5 vs Thermomix TM31 side by side on video
Thank you to Hannah from the Thermoments (Facebook Page) and “babe” for this video, and to Helene at SuperKitchenMachine.com for always having her finger on the pulse of all things Thermomix and posting this Thermomix TM5 vs Thermomix TM31 on video, today. This excellent comparison reiterates what I said Friday after the announcement was made:
Bottom Line: the new machine is not adding another component into the cooking abilities. The changes address the operating system of the machine.
I will add that I have everything apple. I love my ipad, my iphone, my macbook pro and my desk top computer. The integration is seamless and the technology we all know is state of the art and leap years ahead of what anyone else in the industry has accomplished. All that said, I have spent my fair share of time sitting at the Genius bar (brilliant service there) as this is digital technology. There are glitches. With apple, very few.
Now, Verwork will have their bases covered on this, no doubt, yet, I wonder about the repairs without a “Thermomix Genius Bar” in every city that is convenient to get to. This is yet, unforeseen – though I know the company would have tested their work, adnauseum.
In my 7 years of selling the TM31, I have NEVER had any customer (and I have sold hundreds and hundreds of machines) use the warranty. I have had only one customer need a new blade after 5 years and he was a Chef and used his machine multiple times daily in his restaurant. There was also one client who received the bubbly topped Varoma that was a manufactured defect – very rare – and that got replaced immediately. Nothing else. Ever.
So, all in all…. with this video comparing the Thermomix TM5 vs Thermomix TM31, what I know and what I don’t know, I believe Canada is in the best position at this time. We are phasing out the TM31 to hail in the almighty TM5 while watching the world that is already able to access the TM5 respond to its technology, compare it to the TM31 and if glitches are there, they will appear and new machines will be altered to avoid them before Canada launches the Thermomix TM5. It’s all good. And remember – my daughter is not expecting her baby until March of 2015. I bought her the TM31 now because of the incredible incentives. I could have waited for the new machine, but why? The TM31 is tried and true and with the incentives at this point, in my humble opinion, it was a no brainer.
And on we go!
