Look away bargain hunters! The Aldi sausage roll maker is coming. Sure, it’s slightly cheaper than the Kmart cult version. BUT we say this Special Buy is just not worth it!
This pastry appliance is a bit too flaky in our opinion. We certainly don’t have much faith in Aldi gadgets after the recent snack maker bombed. But we just don’t think it’s worth the stress and frustration of lining up at dawn only to discover your local only had two Aldi sausage roll makers to begin with. Certainly not worth it for saving a measly 4 bucks.
The Aldi sausage roll maker is priced at the discounted $24.99, less than the $29 Kmart version. It features non-stick cooking plates and can crisp up both sweet and savoury snacks.
Both Kmart and Aldi machines look pretty much exactly the same. They both can make a batch of four mince sausage rolls or roll out four imitation Maccas apple pies. We reckon they’re most likely made in the same factory and just packed in different boxes.
The Aldi sausage roll maker (aka pastry maker) is part of a massive kitchen Special Buys on Wednesday 9 September. Besides the pastry maker, there is the Thermomix Dupe price at a quarter of the cost of the real thing. There’s also a 16L multifunction airfryer, a compact food processor as well as economically-priced oven, cooktop and even a dishwasher.
Zero Social Distancing
So you don’t have to be a genius to predict that there will be queues of eager beavers snaking around the block, hoping to get their paws on one of the kitchen special buys on offer.
If your sole goal is to get an Aldi sausage roll maker…don’t do it! Kmart seems to have caught up on the backlog and now you can pick up the original machine from your local Kmart store as well as online. So much more relaxed than having fisticuffs in Aldi in order to save a few dollars.
But You Should Line Up For This….
If you don’t yet have a Thermomix, I would, however, consider lining up to get hold of the Smart Wi-fi Thermocooker, priced at $499. This looks like a mega-amped up version of the Mistral Thermo Cooker which was on sale earlier in the year for $299. This latest model features a large touchscreen LCD panel, inbuilt scale and timer, Wifi connectivity, 14 cooking functions, preloaded recipes and comes with a number of accessories.
The 16-litre multi-function air fryer with oven, dehydrator and rotisserie functions, selling for just $149, also looks like a deal worth lining up for.
The gadget comes with racks, an oil drip tray, rotating mesh basket, a rotating rotisserie spit with skewer set, fork and a rotisserie removal tool.
