All-in-one kitchen machines like a Thermomix are true multi-taskers that can chop, beat, whip, grind, knead, mince, juice, blend, heat, stir, steam and more.

Due to their safety issues in recent years, we changed the way we recommend all-in-one kitchen machines. We will only recommend models that pass our safety tests and which score highly enough for performance and ease of use. Some models score highly but fail a safety test, while others pass the safety tests but don't score highly enough. 

As a result you won't find any models in this review that we recommend. However, with the right precautions, there are some worth considering.

Our all-in-one kitchen machine test covers all major multi-task kitchen appliances, so long as they have comparable features. Our kitchen lab performs more than a dozen real-life cooking and ease of use tests to find the machine that:

  • performs the best across a range of tasks such as whisking egg whites, melting chocolate, grinding and milling, kneading dough, chopping, mashed potato and more
  • is the easiest to operate and clean
  • has the best safety features 
  • have the most comprehensive instructions and recipes.

Our interactive comparison tool helps you easily compare the features of each machine.

    If a product fails safety requirements we don't recommend it. We consider speed cut out to be extremely important, where the speed will automatically cut out if the temperature inside the bowl is above 60°C. If a model doesn't have this feature it's automatically not recommended.

      Cooking performance score

      Expand to view more details.

      A total of 13 tests are conducted on the machines, including chopping, kneading, braising, making risotto, steaming and crushing, and the results are averaged into the overall cooking performance score. Performance accounts for 40% of the total.

      Whenever possible, we follow the manufacturers' recipes.
