Who is ThermoJo?
I am Jo Reardon, a Thermomix® Consultant servicing customers and selling across Australia, and provide online Thermomix® Cookidoo® video training worldwide.
I live in Kewarra Beach in the Northern Beaches area of Cairns in Far North Queensland. We moved here in May 2022 from Tasmania. It really is a big lifestyle change! I live with my husband Dale and Dale’s seeing eye dog Cookie. Cookie is a black Labrador x Golden Retriever.
I have been an avid fan of the Thermomix® since 2009 when I bought the TM31 model. I joined as a Thermomix® Consultant in 2021, and through that process earned my Thermomix® TM6. Why didn’t I upgrade earlier?
Although I live in Cairns, I have customers all over Australia, as well as locally. As a virtual consultant I can sell and provide service to customers anywhere in Australia. For my Thermomix® and Cookidoo® training, I even have customers in the UK and USA!
Prior to starting as a Thermomix® Consultant, Dale and I have created other small businesses over the years. While living in Tasmania, we created and operated the Move to Tasmania Blog and Settled In Home Search and Relocation Services, which operated for over 10 years. This business was launched after our own relocation back to Tasmania in 2011.
My Thermomix® Story
I first heard of Thermomix® in 2009 when I was invited to a demo at a friend’s place. She was hosting as a favour to her friend who was a new consultant. She didn’t know anything about them either, and neither of us had any intention to buy. I think you can guess what happened… yes we both bought our first Thermomix®, the TM31 model.
This wasn’t the ideal time to buy for me from a financial perspective. My husband Dale and I were in the midst of building a house and stretching to make that happen. But I just knew the Thermomix® would make a big difference for me and the daily cooking chore. We were eating too much takeaway and I wanted that to change – and it did.
Our TM31 – affectionately named Kermie – was purchased in May 2009, and was a big hit immediately. Going into winter, making soups quickly became a habit, as did curries, bread, dips and so much more.
The Thermomix® basically paid for itself over the next few months thanks to the takeaway savings. We were eating so much better from day one.
I didn’t feel the need to upgrade when the new model, the TM5, was released. Over the years Kermie was used to varying degrees, but always stayed on the bench and was always used several times a week even when using meal kit boxes here and there. The Thermomix® made that process even easier as I could do part or all of the recipe using Kermie.
Fast forward to 2021 and I was looking for a new business opportunity. I had also been actively considering upgrading to the Thermomix® TM6 model. So I made my first contact with Thermomix® Australia about becoming a consultant and was up and running, with a brand new TM6, within a week. It was a massive whirlwind getting started, but it has been so good. Of course I love my TM6 and can honestly say that the connection to Cookidoo® and the Guided Cooking is a game changer.

Some specific blog posts that I recommend if you are just starting your research or are thinking about buying a Thermomix® TM6 are:
FREE Video Series: Your Thermomix® TM6 Questions Answered

See the Thermomix® TM6 in action and ask all your questions
Are you keen to see the Thermomix® TM6 in action? Can it really do everything you have heard about and more? If you want to see for yourself and have an opportunity to ask all your questions, then now is the time to book a time with me to do that.
Sessions on Zoom can run from as little as 15 minutes, through to an hour. You can even invite some friends along and earn yourself a host reward. If you are a current TM31 or TM5 owner the session will be customised to you and your experience.
If you live in Cairns, the Atherton Tablelands, or Port Douglas, then we also have the option to have a Thermomix® Cooking Experience at your place, or at mine. I will come along and cook three dishes to show you the variety of what the TM6 can do.
30 Day Kickstart: online video training for Thermomix® and Cookidoo®
I know that it can be pretty overwhelming when you first get a Thermomix®. There is so much it can do and you don’t know where to start when you open up Cookidoo® and see that there are over 80,000 recipes! Even if you have had your Thermomix® TM6 for a while, or have upgraded from the TM5 or TM31, there is still lots to learn and you may find yourself not using it as much as you used to or to it’s full potential.
The training will take you through every mode, function and setting on the Thermomix® so you quickly become comfortable with using it. I also include extensive training to get the most out of Cookidoo® and share a lot of ideas for great recipes to try in the early days – from basics, to weekday dinners and entertaining.
If you choose to buy your Thermomix® TM6 through me, then as your consultant I will provide you with ongoing support. I will also provide you with free access to my video training.
