10 Ways Your Thermomix Will Save You Money

10 Ways Your Thermomix Will Save You Money

One of the biggest considerations when buying a Thermomix is weighing up the cost (and at over $2k, there’s no doubt that it’s a massive expense!) and the ways in which it could save you money (and thankfully there’s LOTS of them!). We’ve included 10 of the top ways that your Thermomix can save you money below.

Deciding whether or not a Thermomix is worth the cost? Check out our '10 Ways Your Thermomix Will Save You Money' and decide for yourself!

How Your Thermomix Will Save You Money

1. Butters

Store-bought butter and nut butters can be pricey and also full of additives. Making butter and nut-butters in your Thermomix couldn’t be easier (or cheaper).

2. Pizza Bases

Every Friday night is pizza night in our house… so you can imagine how much of a money saver the Thermomix is on those nights! In fact, you can make your own pizza bases in the Thermomix for around $1.00. Amazing, right!?

3. Yoghurt

We’re massive yogurt eaters in our house and would easily go through around 2kg a week (on muesli, for a snack, in smoothies etc). At the supermarket, our favourite yoghurt costs around $7.00 for 600g, whereas you can make 1kg of yoghurt in the Thermie for around $3.00. That’s a massive saving for us.

Here’s our super easy pot-set yoghurt recipe (including lots of tips for getting it right!).

Thermomix Yoghurt

Our Thermomix Yoghurt tastes just like Jalna vanilla yoghurt... but at a fraction of the cost and made from just 5 ingredients. This recipe can easily be doubled for larger families. 
Thermomix Yoghurt Recipe
Place all ingredients into the Thermomix bowl and mix for 12 minutes, 37 degrees, Speed 3. Meanwhile, fill a ThermoServer with boiling water and set aside. When the yoghurt has finished mixing, pour the water out of the ThermoServer and dry it completely (it will now be warm). Pour the yoghurt into the ThermoServer, cover with the lid and then wrap in a towel or blanket to keep warm. Leave for 12 hours (without opening the lid) in a warm room. Then place into the fridge for at least 3 hours before using.

4. Homemade Bread

Making your own bread, rolls, scrolls, buns and loaves can save you a pretty penny. Gourmet olive and parmesan loaves can cost around $8.00 from the bakery, and yet you can make one for around $2.00 in the Thermomix. Similarly, a dozen rolls in the Thermomix will set you back about the same cost as 2-3 rolls from the bakery. This is a great way to save money with your Thermomix every day of the week!

5. Homemade Vegetable Stock

Veggie stock is a staple in any kitchen and making your own not only saves you money, but you also know exactly what’s going into it. (You’ll also usually get a chance to make a batch of homemade stock when you have your Thermomix delivered or during a demo!).

6. Almond Meal

I do a lot of baking, so this one is a huge thing for me! A tiny packet of almond meal at the supermarket is so expensive (around $15.00 for 500g) and yet you can make your own in the Thermomix for just over half that cost. Plus, we always have almonds sitting in the pantry, so it’s easy to whip up a container of almond meal (and it saves a trip to the supermarket too!)… and it only takes a couple of seconds!

7. Smoothies and Juices

I’ve certainly been known to pop by Boost Juice for a mid-afternoon pick me up. And while I love their juices and smoothies, one drink can cost over $6.00. Using the Thermomix lets me make 2-3 juices and smoothies for the same price.

Here’s a few of our favourites…

8. Cakes and Biscuits

If you’re someone who buys store-bought cakes, biscuits and slices, then a Thermomix will save you a huge amount of money! Making your own baked goods from scratch is one of the biggest money savers.. plus they’ll taste far better too!

There are so many other ways that the Thermomix will save you money… whether it’s by making your own jams, butter or even laundry powder, or by reducing your gas and electricity bills… it really can save you a whole lot of cash! Most people say that the savings they make from owning a Thermomix would mean that they would have paid it off within a year – which is pretty good considering that you’re going to get a whole lot of years use out of it!

  1. I’m loving the sounds of all these ways a thermomix can save you money, I would so very much love one! Hopefully one day!
    Happy fabulous foodie Fridays and happy long weekend lovely ladies! xx

  2. I totally agree. It’s so important to know what is inside your food. You could add to your list Nutella also. And icing sugar. That saved me a lot of money! xx cathy
    ps: could you give me a link for a good veggie yogurt thermomixable? My trials were always disasters!

  3. sugar. I now just buy raw sugar and make my own castar and icing sugar. I also used spend so much money on microwave rice simply because i could never get it right on the stove top or rice cooker. The thermomix does an amazing job.

      We totally agree that the Thermomix is a super expensive item! But, as our post is trying to point out, there are so many ways that you can save money using your Thermomix (and this is only a very small list of the full range of ways). We’re not trying to convince people to buy a Thermomix, but rather to show the ways you can save a few dollars if you do happen to buy one. We totally get that a Thermomix isnt everyone’s ‘cup of tea’ so to speak! 🙂

    2. I have never seen vegetable stock cooked in a food processor. Or any other cooked meal, sauce, spread, jam, soup, gravy, casserole, curry or coulis.
      Apples/oranges.
      Just saying.

        Hi GrandMa, It certainly sounds like you love your Thermie!!! Sounds like you get a lot of use out of it too! 🙂

      2. I so agree with you Grandma, I was able to get rid of so many appliances and have a Thermomix that stays on the bench and gets used every day. Worth every penny!

  4. I’m interested to know what appliances you could get rid of because you have your thermie?
    My biggest decision has to be my beautiful aqua blue kitchen aid that looks so pretty on my bench… ??. I’m so torn!!! Do I, don’t I????? ???

    1. Hi Loren,

      Oh I totally understand, I haven’t gotten rid of my Kitchen Aid because 1. I still use it for some things and 2. It looks so pretty! Thankfully I was able to give my food processor, blender, stick mixer, milkshake maker away to friends.

    2. I find I like to use my kitchen aid for cakes that benefit from whisking and adding “air”. But love my thermie and couldn’t do without it now. I’m sure they would keep each other company on your bench.
