Run don’t walk: ALDI slings a new $249 Thermomix dupe in Special Buys

Nobody does budget copies of high-end appliances like ALDI. And next weekend, the discount supermarket is bringing back its beloved thermo cooker for $249 in Special Buys (from Saturday 12 March). It’s nearly 10 times cheaper than the real Thermomix TM6 which typically sells for upwards of $2,300.

ALDI’s 2L Stirling thermo cooker features 10 speed settings (including three reverse speeds and a pulse function), built-in electronic scales, an adjustable timer and temperature settings, a digital display with a control knob, and a safety double lock system on the cooking bowl to keep it in place during big cooking jobs. It additionally includes a 3.5L bowl with a 2L usable capacity.
