Keen shoppers who’ve spotted in Aldi’s most recent catalogue have taken to a budgeting Facebook group to share the news.
‘If you can’t justify a Thermomix, Aldi has a cheaper option in their catalogue on 7 September,’ wrote one alongside a snap showing the gadget.
‘I bought a similar version from Target a few years ago and would totally recommend this.
‘Note the brand is Mistral. This brand of cooker has previously been sold in Spotlight and Big W.’
The gadget is featured in Aldi’s most recent catalogue and has since been posted to a Facebook page, sending shoppers wild
From an array of positive comments on the thread, it seems the Aldi dupe lives up to the hype.
‘I own this (Aldi version of Thermomix) and it is awesome!’ Said one.
Another added: ‘I got this one from Big W a few years ago. Not 100% the same but good for the price.’
‘I had one of these before I got my Thermomix,’ a third said adding, ‘it was really really good. Definitely worth it.’
