You'd pass at that price too, I would assume?
I will look out for second hand ones maybe, they must have great build quality.
I wasn't sure what the conversion rate is to be honest, but now that I lookedit up, yep, I would definitely pass. That is a very steep markup.

Does anyone know of away around this? What if someone from Downunder were to purchase an item on Ebay in the US and have it shipped. Would that work? I purchase items direct from Hong Kong and they arrive as a "gift".

For things like wsm/ kettles, we save when we order from USA but still get gutted on shipping, plus, you would be amazed how insulated US business thinking is.
Majority of businesses just don't ship, even in this climate with our strong economy wide open!
Gas products we have different fittings so no way to save, and electrical is different here too, ours is 240 volts.

I have a thermomix. I can blend, purée, cook etc etc in a thermomix. All butter sauces are a snack. Custards & therefore ice cream you can do on your ear. One can even make yogurt in it.
I make soups such as carrot and pumpkin and once puréed they are so smooth the texture is as if I added cream.
One can purée sauces so fine you can use in a syringe!!
If you think I am a fan - yes,yes.

That's the thing - I didn't google it I'm not in the market for one.

Now I'm back to getting grill ads. Maybe I imagined the whole thing.

I will say this, my BlendTec blends things so fast, that only my Thermapen is faster! But I'm not going to blend my Thermapen.

Do a Google search for Zazzle. The Zazzle ad has naked girls all over it. I found out when I was searching for "Kansas Postcards" for mmmmeat and followed the first link to Zazzle. Maybe not something you shoudl do at work though.
