Scam Warnings

Thermomix® Purchases on the Internet

You may find various offers in online shops to purchase a new Thermomix®. These offers have no connection to Thermomix® in Brunei. Our company sells the Thermomix® exclusively through a complete Thermomix® Cooking Experience. This way, as our customer, you’ll benefit from a personal relationship and after sales customer service supported by an authorised Thermomix® Advisor. Online Thermomix® offers may look very professional, however, Thermomix® do not issue licenses to third parties to use our logos and photos. These are illegally used. Please educate yourself about any seller on the internet. Caution must be taken with online Thermomix® offers, particularly in regards to warranty support in Brunei.

Beware of copy cats

You may have come across products/brands that tout themselves as being “as good as Thermomix®“. Be aware that any brand other than Thermomix® is not offered by us. Thermomix® is the first original creator of this category with over 60 years of innovation since its first introduction in 1961. Thermomix® is wholly developed and made in Europe, holding over 151 inventor patents and has built over 12mil users and offers the largest recipe library globally. Being present worldwide offices in over 80 countries and a long history means you can always get technical support for Thermomix® no matter where you are. Ask these questions if you are offered a “copycat” product :-

  1. How long has the brand been around?
  2. Are they the original inventor?
  3. How many users do they have?
  4. Where is the product made?
  5. How many years have they been making the product?
  6. What is their R&D expertise?
  7. How many invention patents do they own?
  8. What safety certifications do they have?
  9. Do you get personal 1-to-1 support ?
  10. Are renowned Michelin and World Best chefs and restaurants using the product? 

There is only one Thermomix® but many “copycats”.

Do not take any risks!

Book your own Cooking Experience with a Thermomix® Advisor or by contacting us.

Customers also enjoy other unique benefits such as cooking classes, host rewards and free recipes, through their Thermomix® Advisors and via our online Recipe CommunityFacebook, and Instagram  pages.

Thermomix® Discounted Price and Group Buy Scam

Thermomix® is never discounted. It retails at a fixed price of B$ 2,398 with a 2-year local warranty (1 year for commercial use) in Brunei. If you have been quoted any price lower than B$ 2,398, it is definitely a scam where the seller is attempting to sell a used, refurbished or stolen unit.

All consumers should watch for these signs of possible scam :-

  1. The price is lower than B$ 2,398
  2. An official invoice/delivery order from Thermomix® Brunei | Truemix (B) Sdn. Bhd. is not provided
  3. The seller insists on cash payment only or direct transfer to personal bank account. Always transfer your payment directly to Truemix (B) Sdn Bhd, the only authorised distributor of Thermomix® in Brunei
  4. The product is not shipped from Thermomix® Brunei | Truemix (B) Sdn. Bhd.
  5. You are made “personal promises” of extra gifts and rebates that are not in current promotions published by Thermomix® Brunei | Truemix (B) Sdn. Bhd.
