ACCC takes Thermomix to court

The Perth-based distributor of the Thermomix kitchen appliances in Australia is being taken to court by the consumer watchdog for allegedly misleading customers when the products were found to be dangerously faulty.

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission said today that Balcatta-headquartered Thermomix, which acts as the Australian distributor for German cooking appliance maker Vorwerk, had contravened several provisions of the Australian Consumer Law.

The issues centre on Thermomix’s TM31 model, which was supplied in Australia until September 2014. At that time, it was revealed the model’s faulty lid sealing ring had resulted in numerous burn-related injuries.
