The best things about the Thermomix® TM6

Cook from another room with your Thermomix® TM6

I was the owner of a Thermomix® TM31 for 12 years before I upgraded to the Thermomix® TM6 in 2021. 

Over all those years, for me the best part of owning a Thermomix® has been the fact that it can cook and stir without you being nearby. No more using the stove top and needing to hover in case something boils over, or stir constantly to cook evenly. Basically you have a few minutes prep and do other things while it cooks. This is even better with the TM6 now as it has a high heat mode, which means it can stir fry your meat and vegetables. Amazing!

Cooking new things in the Thermomix® TM6

The second thing that I have always loved, is that I have become so much more adventurous in my cooking and have made so many things that I otherwise wouldn’t have bothered with. For example, I now make:

  • Bread
  • Mayonnaise
  • Dips
  • Pastry
  • Yoghurt
  • Hollandaise and other sauces
  • Risotto is an everyday type meal (no more stirring!)
  • Soups
  • Steamed puddings
  • Bliss balls
  • … and so much more 

This willingness to try anything comes from knowing that the Thermomix® can do so much, and also that the time needed for prep is often very minimal.

Thermomix® recipes

In the old days (2009!) when I got my Thermomix® TM31, you tended to cook most things from the Everyday Cookbook that came with it, and then occasionally search online for other recipes. Over time, more and more blogs and forums popped up.

Now, you have the Thermomix® recipe database – Cookidoo®, that has over 80,000 recipes globally, with over 3000 Australian recipes, and over 10,000 in English (at time of writing).

Cookidoo® connects via wifi to your Thermomix® TM6, so your chosen recipes are on the screen ready to follow step by step. It really couldn’t be easier – and I go out of my way now to find a Cookidoo® recipe for what I want to cook. Cookidoo®, along with Guided Cooking, really is one of my favourite things.

You also have the option to edit the Cookidoo® recipes and save your own version. This is brilliant for recipes you make often and always adapt to your own tastes.

As much as I love guided cooking, you can still cook with the Thermomix TM6 using the manual controls, and I do often still do this – particularly when making a dish that I have in a cookbook or if just doing something quick with one or two steps. I have been known to use manual mode to cook sweet potato mash and completely forgotten to set the temperature though. Yes, I am pretty used to guided cooking now!
