Has anyone heard of this machine or used it?

I am a pretty newbie Thermie owner having gotten one for Christmas. It is hard to believe that it can do so many things so well but it is true. I only use the thermie now, all other ktichen appliances have gone.
As it is not available in the USA there is somewhat a lack of websites but still quite a bit of info online. Apparently the reason it is not available in the US is because the voltage is 110 volts whereas in most other parts of the world it is 250 volts. I would have thought given the size of the potential market, that this is a problem that could been overcome, so maybe there are other issues.
It is a great machine and the only way to really find out about is to see it in action from a demonstrator.
There is a 120V version, I live in México and long ago I was offered one and I even got the demonstration... But the price was equal to buy a robot coupe power mixer, a vitamix vita prep and a professional kitchen aid food processor, being and old fashion not so young man, I didn't take the plunge with the Thermomix and instead I got the vitamix and the food processor.
I have relatives in Spain and they just can't stop talking great things about their "Thermos", seems to be very popular in Europe... It must be a very good piece for sure, if you really want one, you can come to Mexico, grab a frozen Margarita and take your thermomix back with you. Here's the link http://shop.vorwerk.mx
