Definitely second the Thermomix for an out of this world kitchen tool! For those who don't know about it, think the power of a Vitamix with the ability to cook at the same time. The power and versatility of this thing is brilliant. It has made a huge difference to me eating primally. Big bucks but SO worth it! I use mine 3 or 4 times a day.
It is sold via a home demonstration all over the world but I think USA can buy now via Canada.
