Who, here, has a Bimby?

And uses it regularly?

And, more importantly, what is it good at making?

(What's a Bimby, you ask? Well, funny you should ask. http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/S...)

    I don't have one but a CH-friend was asking about an equivalent. Too rich for my blood :)

      Depressing video. Cooking of a sort. Needs all new recipes. The time spent learning how to Bimby could be spent learning how to actually cook and at less expense.

      Make potatoes au gratin or a hamburger or a pasta dish in Bimby? doubt it

          Yes, this is what a friend has been looking at.

          thx for the definition/link, I was wondering if there was suddenly a gender ambiguous version of bimbo out there.

            LOL. That was my response as well! I was wondering if the CH moderators would have to step in!

            Hi, ipse:

            No, I do not have one, but after reading your OP and link, I want one.

            It runs contrary to my electro-. countertop-, digital- and techno-phobias, but it (along with the Thermomix) seems to me to be a sensible descendant of both food processor and blender.

            I could have used it yesterday when I made Julia Child's lobster bisque. If you tell me it also has a Chinoise feature, I will sell my car to acquire a Bimby.

            Aloha,
            Kaleo
