I would like to get a Tmx, but not for another 3 years or so. DH not on board plus there is a $5k study course I want to do more than get a Tmx, curtains on the windows would be nice too!
In the meantime my hand beaters don't seem to have the power they used to have and I'd like to get a stand beater.
The kKitchen aids are too dear, I was looking at Bosco http://www.boscoappl...ion-stand-mixer
Also I've had a look at Gumtree and eBay, nothing much there at the moment.
I don't bake bread, but do desserts.

I have that Bosco. Rosie is the best!
It is quite a bit bigger than a KitchenAid on the bench. The dough hooks are awesome. The mincer is all metal parts and chews through meat so quickly. I don't buy mince anymore.
The mixer hook with the silicone swiper works brilliantly for cakes. The whisk seems fine, but I haven't needed it much yet.
My blender jug just smashed (fell from a cupboard, doh) and I miss it loads already. Very good for smoothies!
I haven't tried the grinder or the pasta extruder yet. DH bought the juicer attachment and it is really good (also a bit messy and you need to chop the pieces quite small).
Can you tell I'm a devoted Bosco owner much?? Seriously, I thought it would tide me over until I could justify a KitchenAid. No way am I parting with Rosie now

Don't know if you'd be interested but Aldi is bringing out their version of the thermie on Wednesday for $349 I think. I had a look at the instruction manual and it seems quite similar. I don't know of it would be as hard wearing as thermie or how the motor would go, but it comes with a 3 yr warranty. Have a look on Kuchef and see what you think.

Stand mixers are really handy. If you never need to mix heavy stuff (doughs, meat, etc.) then I think you could get away with a cheaper one. However that Bosco looks really good. I have a tmx and a Kenwood chef. If I'd seen the Bosco when I was mixer shopping I might have ended up with one of those instead! Love the size for big batches and the retro styling too.

I have a TMX, so I'm not a TMX bagger, but.... I hate that the TMX only has a 2 year warranty! Love the machine, though.
