The rmomix alternatives
The rmomix TM6, costs around 1,500 euros. So it’s no wonder that customers are looking for cheaper alternatives. Lidl offers the Monsieur Cuisine Connect from the Silvercrest brand, which not only looks like the Vorwerk
In November 2020, Vorwerk had tried a Spanish court to stop the sale of Lidl’s food processor, at least in Spain. A judgment has now been passed. According to the court, Lidl would infringe Vorwerk’s patent. Among other things, this involves the safety mechanism of the lid, which is intended to prevent it from opening if the knives in the container are still rotating. Lidl simply copied this principle from Vorwerk, so the allegation.
As a result, Lidl is no longer allowed to sell or advertise the Monsieur Cuisine Connect in Spain. In addition, Lidl has to pay compensation. How high this will be has not yet been announced. It also remains unclear what effects the judgment will have in other European countries.
The discounter told a French newspaper that it would have no impact on France. Only Lidl Spain is affected.
