Remember those commercials for kitchen appliances that can do it all? “It slices, it dices, makes julienne fries!” Well, here’s an appliance that actually does do just about everything you could ask for when you’re in the kitchen.

If there’s a task you need to do for meal preparation, odds are you can count on the Termomix TM6 to take care of it.
