The current Thermomix TM6 is powerful but expensive. Even if the TM6 will remain current for at least a year, the current price of 1,399 euros (from January 7, 2024: 1,499 euros) is likely to be too high for many prospective buyers. But there are alternatives, for example the predecessor Thermomix TM5 as a refurbished example.
A dealer on Ebay is currently selling the Vorwerk Thermomix TM5 Refurbished with Varoma with a sliding board, but without a cook key for 729.90 euros. But the price can be changed with the voucher code PERFECTEBAY10 by another 50 euros to just 679.90 euros. See the following screenshot showing our shopping cart on Ebay:

This is the TM5
Vorwerk introduced the TM5 in 2014. Despite its age, the TM5 is still a real Thermomix and makes working in the kitchen much easier. We explain the differences between the TM31 (the predecessor of the TM5), the TM5 and the current TM6 in this article: Thermomix TM6: Is it worth switching from TM31 or TM5?
