UPGRADE TO THE THERMOMIX® TM6

How does your Thermomix® help you?

Why do you love your Thermomix®?

Do you remember what was the main reason you wanted to buy your current Thermomix®?

For me, buying my TM31 way back in 2009, was about taking away the nightly stress around cooking dinner after a long day at work. I knew it would save me time and help me enjoy cooking again, and it did both very quickly.

Over time I learned more and made so many things that I would never have considered trying before. It really did provide that confidence in the kitchen.

Now with the TM6, my experience is all that and more. This really is like the TM31 with superpowers. Being connected to Cookidoo® and using guided cooking really is a game changer. So much so, that I really do try to use Cookidoo® recipes as much as I can. 

I had thought about upgrading for a while and really wonder why did it take me so long!

Guided Cooking and Cookidoo®?

Cookidoo® is an online recipe platform that includes over 70,000 recipes for the Thermomix®. 

By connecting your Thermomix® TM6 to Cookidoo® , you can use guided cooking to take you through recipes step-by-step.

You do still have the option to use the manual mode, where you select the time, temperature and speed for each step in your cooking. Using Cookidoo®, these settings are already programmed into the recipe and all you need to do is follow the instructions on the screen as you add ingredients.

The short videos below introduce you to guided cooking on the Thermomix® TM6, and how to search and save recipes. It really is as easy as it looks.

Upgrade to the Thermomix® TM6 from the TM31

I used my Thermomix® TM31 for 12 years before upgrading in 2021. The change in models has been really easy, while at the same time having so many new things to explore. I was already using Cookidoo® for recipe ideas, and then cooking manually with the TM31.

For me the best changes are:

  • Guided Cooking is my favourite upgrade feature. It makes everything so much quicker.
  • The high temp mode is incredible. It is even used in risotto and makes the already amazing risotto even better.
  • The fermentation mode makes yoghurt making even easier. Just leave your yoghurt overnight and it is perfect when you get up.
  • I also love the Warm Up mode for reheating. An easier process and better result than using the microwave, and you can walk away and come back when it is perfect.

Upgrade to the Thermomix® TM6 from the TM5

I haven’t owned a TM5. I went straight from the TM31 to the Thermomix® TM6.

However, the benefits of upgrading from the TM5 are still clear when I review the table above and my favourite things about the TM6.

As noted in the section above about the TM31, my favourite feature now with the TM6 is the Guided Cooking. This takes the Cook-Key® process to another level. Being fully connected by WiFi and being able to easily plan meals and save to My Week in Cookidoo® is a great time saver.

Many of the modes on the TM6 give you super simple ways to do things you can do manually if you know how. Plus some introduce modes that you can’t really replicate with manual mode.
