Xiaomi, TOKIT and Chunmi?
Info update (September 16, 2022)
The TOKIT Omni Cook has now officially made it onto Amazon! With sale and shipping by Amazon, the device is currently available with a 23% discount for 1007,55 euros instead of 1315 euros. The discount is activated on the Amazon product page.
TOKIT's plans for the European market have so far been unclear. In April it was said that the company would initially like to focus on the North American and Southeast Asian markets. When we asked TOKIT, we were now told that they would also like to populate the European market with immediate effect.
The first is the TOKIT Omni Cook, which wants to hold a candle to the Thermomix TM6. More products are to follow at the end of the year.
With the many different names that come up in connection with the TOKIT Omni Cook, it is easy to lose track of things. To get some clarity, let's first take a look back.
At the end of 2020, the multifunction kitchen machine “Ocooker” (Link) published. Many of the products that appear on Youpin come from Xiaomi-related companies that are directly connected to the vast Xiaomi ecosystem.
The company behind the ocooker is Chunmi Technology Co., Ltd (Link), a company that has been in existence since 2013 and specializes in smart kitchen appliances. Xiaomi is only one of the top-level investors who support Chunmi Technology technologically and financially. TOKIT (Link) is the brand name under which Chunmi sells the smart kitchen appliances.
The Ocooker is only available on the Chinese market and has not yet made it beyond the country's borders due to the language barrier. In China, however, the Thermomix alternative is so successful that one now wants to compete on the global market. Adapted for the global market, the "Xiaomi Thermomix" will soon be available from us as TOKIT Omni Cook.
