FAQs

Yes, all accessories are dishwasher safe. For cleaning please always disassemble your mixing bowl, even for diswasher cleaning. Dry thouroghly, especially the pins on the button, before assemble and use.

HOW TO DISASSEMBLE THE MIXING BOWL If you want to clean the mixing knife and mixing bowl thoroughly, you must remove the mixing knife.

  1. Hold the mixing bowl so that the opening points are upwards.
  2. Turn the mixing bowl base 30 degrees clockwise counter-clockwise and pull the mixing bowl base off downwards. The mixing knife remains in the mixing bowl.
  3. Carefully hold the upper part of the mixing knife and remove it together with its sealing ring.
HOW ASSEMBLE THE MIXING BOWL
  1. Ensure that the sealing ring of the mixing knife is correctly positioned under the knife bearing.
  2. Hold the mixing bowl so that the opening points are upwards.
  3. Carefully hold the upper part of the mixing knife and insert it, together with the sealing ring, into the hole in the bottom of the mixing bowl until the sealing ring is touching the base of the bowl.
  4. Attach the mixing bowl base to the bottom of the mixing bowl.
  5. Turn the mixing bowl base 30 degrees towards the handle to lock the mixing knife firmly in place.
  6. Check that the mixing bowl base is firmly seated. The mixing bowl will only go into the base unit if it has been correctly assembled.

One of the benefits of our new measuring cup is the noise reduction, because the material absorbes. He is locked in the lid so it does not rattle while processing food (e.g. dough mode). Related to the fixed hold it does not fall down when removing the lid and you can remove the lid by using the cup as a handle. Hold the cup firmly so that the lid can be lifted off and turned over directly. This prevents liquids from dropping off the lid.

The capacity of the measuring cup is 100 ml.

"Yes, the knife is labelled with a 6 digit code; the first 4 digits contain the production year and week YY WW". A traceability document will be delivered as soon as it is available.

The mixing knife will wear out over time if the Thermomix® TM6 is regularly used for chopping hard food. We recommended to replace the Mixing Knife every 250 - 300h of use.

The measuring cup is a closing cap for the hole in the mixing bowl lid to avoid heat loss and it prevents ingredients from escaping. You can also use the measuring cup to measure liquids. It has a 100 ml and a 50 ml marking. If you wish to add a small amount of liquid, there is no need to remove the measuring cup. Simply pour the liquid slowly onto the lid. It will gradually trickle into the mixing bowl. To add larger quantities of liquid or ingredients to the mixing bowl, lift the measuring cup from the hole in the lid. Proceed as follows:

  1. Gently push the measuring cup forwards.
  2. Tilt the measuring cup upwards and lift it out.

The mixing bowl may not be correctly assembled.

  • Check whether the mixing bowl base is locked into place correctly

Disconnect the appliance from the mains power supply before cleaning the base unit. Clean the display in the same way as the main appliance: Wipe with a damp soft cloth and gentle cleansing agent. Use water sparingly to prevent moisture from entering the appliance. Don't use sharp tools or aggressive cleaning liquids/sprays.

Some coloured ingredients like curry, carrots, tomatoes etc. may cause stains on plastic. The specific surface texture of the parts means that this is often unavoidable. To avoid these kinds of stains, you need to wipe any coloured food off the plastic parts as quickly as possible. The majority of other discolouration will disappear automatically over time. Putting the parts in direct sunlight can help with this. The discolouration will not harm your health in any way, nor will it impair the functionality of the parts.

For even greater safety, the simmering basket is fitted with a lid. It is permanently attached to the basket and should not be removed at any time. All components are dishwasher-safe. Place plastic parts, in particular the mixing bowl lid, into the top rack of the dishwasher in order to avoid deformation resulting from exposure to higher temperatures and pressure from items above. Some of the plastic parts may become slightly discoloured but this does not affect your health or how the parts function. Thoroughly clean all parts of the Thermomix® TM6 after every use.

No, the energy consumption for higher temperatures is of course higher than for lower temperatures, since less heating power is required to reach the target temperature. In addition, since the volume in the TM6 bowl is smaller than in a conventional slow cooking device, the energy consumption for slow cooking in the TM6 is also lower in comparison to other devices on the market.

NWOT has 4 different heating Modes: Standard, Soft (only available in Speed 2, 2,5 and 3), Varoma (only available if Varoma is selected) and 160ºC (hidden heating program only available in guided cooking).

Varoma for steam cooking, 120° C (for sauting), highest temperature for roasting/browning, only in guided cooking recipes. 90° C control heating (like creams with egg), 37° C room temparature.

Thease are the available modes for NWOT: Scales, Turbo, Dought, Pre-Clean, Kettle, Blend, Slow Cook, Whip, Sous-vide, Fermentation, High Temperature, Sugar Stages.

The cleaning mode takes up to 5 minutes, because it is automized and checks the amount of water and temperature. The water is heated so that the duration depends on the initial temperature.Of course, the cleaning mode does not have to be used everytime the device is set up, however there are some recipes where it is very helpful to have this smart, automatic cleaning control available, which adapts to the leftovers and their consistency in the bowl. To reach the corner of the lid you need at least 1.5 litres of water.

The lock symbol is displayed because it is not possible to change the default settings in this mode.

The Varoma mode is still the highest temperature you can use for manual cooking. 160° is only integrated in Cookidoo guided recipes as part of the NWOT modes. A usage despite of this is technically blocked for security reasons.

The Dough mode can be used for create doughs especially yeast doughs and other heavy doughs. Maximal weight is 1000g.

  • 5 Times turn clockwise for 2.5 seconds and pause for 2.5 seconds after each turning time.
  • 1 Time turn counter-clockwise for 2.5 seconds and pause for 2.5 seconds after each turning time.
The Dough mode can be used until the temperature reaches 60°C and 600 rpm speed. Please use the measuring cup when you use it to avoid ingredients splash out of the mixing bowl. When you have heavy doughs you can use the spatula for a better kneading result.

Chop with high speed up to 10,700 rotations per minute. The Turbo mode can be used for a short chopping from 0.5 – 2 seconds at the highest speed. Turbo can be used until the temperature reaches 60°C. Please use the measuring cup when you use turbo to avoid ingredients splash out of the mixing bowl. You can use this mode e.g. for grating parmesan, bread coarse, mill peppercorns or sugar.

Weighs in 1g intervals. Scales can be used until speed 4. Only until 3 Kg can be measured in one measurement. 6Kg is the maximum accumulated weight measurable. Measure available in Kg and oz.

Description (Info text GUI): Pour a maximum of 1 litre water and a little drop of washing up liquid or 50 g vinegar in mixing bowl and Thermomix® will Pre-clean itself. Also helps when your knife is stuck (in such cases it can take up to 1 hour). Attention: Please use your measuring cup to prevent splashing and don’t use more soap than indicated or foam will come out of mixing bowl . Mode to pre-clean mixing bowl making much easier (faster, less effort) to clean mixing bowl. Machine behaviour during mode: (if motor is blocked, the caramel “repair ” mode is performed first).

  • Heat up water to 45 °C at speed 2.
  • Start rotation 40 secs/speed 4 alternating each 10 secs rotation sense.
  • Time over and mode finished.
Parameters: Speed: In Pre-clean mode is a sequence, first mixes at speed 4 until target temp is reached, then rotation alternates to remove residues from below the knives more easily. Temperature: Currently is fixed to 45 °C but will have input per user either 37 ⁰C or 45 ⁰C in the future. Testing in bunker demonstrates that pre-cleaning raw dough leftovers with hot water is counterproductive (it cooks and adheres) and best results have been achieved at 37 ⁰C (concept on how to implement these 2 temperatures still under discussion).

Information text: Heat 100-1800 g water between 37°C (e.g. baby bottles) and 100°C (e.g tea, pasta). Attention: Please use your measuring cup to prevent the water boiling over... Machine behaviour during mode:

  1. Heat content to defined target temperature at speed 1.
  2. Heat until target temperature is reached or after max 90 min.
  3. Hold target temperature for 5 sec and then stop.
NOTE: Kettle is a mode used to heat up water, like any other electric kettle, not milk. Therefore no overboiling should occur. Text in info does not mention over boiling in master version precisely because it describes heating water.

Description (info in GUI): With this mode you can ferment certain foods at a constant temperature. Set the time up to 12 hours ahead with a temperature between 37-70°C. This mode can be used to ferment yoghurt or prove a yeast dough in Varoma dish in a warm environment created by the hotter temperature of the water in mixing bowl. To protect against the possibility of rust, the juice of half a squeezed lemon or a level teaspoon of vitamin C/ascorbic acid powder must be added to the water. Max. time 12 h allowed as long as the recipes in GC include ascorbic acid or lemon juice in the water in mixing bowl when fermentation takes place in Varoma. Machine behaviour during mode:

  1. no time/[Temperature]/reverse/speed spoon until temperature is reached.
  2. 4 min (for Temperatures until 50C), 10 min (for Temperatures 55-70C), 20 min (for Temperatures higher 70C) at reverse/speed spoon.
  3. Rest of defined [Time] on [Temperature] without speed.
Tips and hints for use In Recipe development: To prevent the possibility of blades or mixing bowl corrosion (rust) the water to heat up Varoma needs to have ascorbic acid in powder form or lemon juice as the info text mentions. This is mandatory for recipes in Guided Cooking (ingredient has to be included into list of ingredients, preparation text and GC prompt). Use fermentation with water in mixing bowl at 70 C to make yoghurt in Varoma. Use fermentation at 37-40 C to make yoghurt in mixing bowl. Try fermenting doughs in mixing bowl at 37 C (as long as the stirring time does not damage the dough) or in Varoma with water in mixing bowl at 65-70 C. Explore possibilities to ferment fresh cheeses in container placed in Varoma with water in mixing bowl at 55-60 C.

Replaces the traditional/additional mixer to prepare e.g. shakes or smoothies. Purée, soups, smoothies, they all are made in this mode. Put the ingredients in the mixing bowl up to maximum 2 kilo. Things will start slowly at speed 5 and automatically increase to speed 6-8. Please use your measuring cup, to prevent ingredients splashing out of the bowl. Modes starts once temperature is below 60ºC with a start speed. The speed increasy progressively until target is reached and stays on target speed until the end.

Description (info in GUI): Cover a maximum of 800 g meat with sauce, cook for 1-8 hours, between 37-98°C, and the results will be soft and tender. Attention: Please use your measuring cup to prevent ingredients splashing out of the mixing bowl. Watery, salty liquids can only be used in this mode if wine, apple juice, vinegar or citric acid are added. Max. time 8 h allowed as long as the recipes in GC include sauces or if using something more watery, it has an acid like stated in the info text. Machine behaviour during mode:

  1. Slow cooking mode: no time/[Temperature]/reverse/speed spoon until temperature is reached.
  2. Slow cooking mode: 4min (for Temperatures until 50C), 10min (for Temperatures 55-70C), 20 min (for Temperatures higher 70C) with reverse/speed spoon.
  3. Slow cooking mode: Rest of defined [Time] on [Temperature] without speed (1min) and reverse/speed spoon (1min) changing always.
Tips and hints for use in Recipe Development: To prevent the possibility of blades or mixing bowl corrosion (rust) the liquid into which food is slow cooked needs to have acid ingredients like vinegar (present in barbecue sauce, ketchup, etc..), apple juice, wine, lemon (citric acid). This is mandatory for recipes developed for Guided Cooking. As long as there is no blade cover (sous vide attachment) certified for use in contact with food, all recipes will have to be without it. Recipes like pulled pork, bolognaise sauce, shredded chicken soups or sauces, veal ragu for pasta and chilies are not problematic, since the meat has to be shredded or can be a bit torn into pieces or is already minced. For recipes in which the meat has to keep shape it is necessary to use the blade cover (in the future).

Prepare perfect cream. Program stops when, for example, cream is whipped and the cream has the optimum stiffness. Just pour 200-1000 ml cream with a temperature between 7-12°C in the mixing bowl and this mode will stop automatically, once the cream or the egg white is perfectly whipped. Please use your measuring cup, to prevent ingredients splashing out of the bowl. Max. time 12 h allowed as long as the recipes in GC include ascorbic acid or lemon juice in the water in mixing bowl for the water bath.

Description (info in GUI): This mode lets you cook vacuum-packed meat, fish and seafood, vegetables or fruit with any defined and constant temperature between 40-85°C for up to 12 hours. The result will be juicy, soft and tender. Place meat, fish, vegetables (or even chocolate) in a vacuum-packed bag, place the bag in the simmering basket and cover it with water. Attention: Please use your measuring cup to prevent ingredients splashing out of the mixing bowl. To protect against the possibility of rust, the juice of half a squeezed lemon or a level teaspoon of vitamin C/ascorbic acid powder must be added to the water. Note: Sous vide attachment not available yet. Simmering basked is the only way to achieve it so far. Machine behaviour during mode:

  • Temperature is set to [Temperature] and speed to 1, reverse
  • Based on defined [Time] the heating will be done on that
  • After cooking device stops.
Tips and hints for use in Recipe development:
  • To prevent the possibility of blades or mixing bowl corrosion (rust) the water bath needs to have ascorbic acid in powder form or lemon juice as the info text mentions. This is mandatory for recipes in Guided Cooking (ingredient has to be included into list of ingredients, preparation text and GC prompt).
  • Use simmering basket until we have a certified Sous-vide attachment (blade cover).
  • Portions have to be small due to use of simmering basket NWOT (with cover). Water must circulate around the vacuum packed food (around each bag).
  • Try to use bags into which food fits but not too big to avoid excess bag to fold and use the space in simmering basket.
Food safety: Cooking at low temperatures might cause bacterial growth without killing, please be aware the most relevant ratio is time/temperature/thickness of piece of food. The lower the temperature and the thicker the food, the longest it takes to have final temperature at the core.

Description (info in GUI): This mode lets you brown onions for enhanced flavour in your dishes. Attention: use the splash guard to allow steam to evaporate while preventing hot oil splashing out of the mixing bowl. Machine behaviour during mode:

  1. Identification phase if there are enough pieces of food in the liquid - 5 seconds /Speed 2 reverse without heating.
  2. Heat up until [Temperature] is reached with 200 rpm (Speed 2) reverse.
  3. Stir for 5 sec/speed 1, reverse, then 3 sec/speed 1 clockwise, still heating.
  4. Heat with (Temperature) for 30 sec without stirring.
  5. Repeat step 3,4 until defined [Time] minus 1 minute is done.
  6. Last 60 secs without heating until temperature is at 125 C (so it is possible to chop after browning) Tips and hints for use in Recipe development.
To check whether only oil is poured into mixing bowl and in order to avoid it, the GPA algorithms check the mass inside the bowl (by power consumption), if there is only oil the power needed to move the knives is less. The algorithms for GPA have been developed taking into account the mass in VI NWOT recipes:
  • Lowest mass where no failure occur: 170g.
  • Highest mass where no failure occur: 600g (higher masses were not tested because of recipe result but might not cause failure because of GPA but probably would not brown properly either).
Take into account that browning or roasting smaller masses won’t work (minced garlic, finely julienned shallots, seeds, spices, etc..) in those cases try browning with oil or dry roasting at 120 ⁰C). At 120 ⁰C it is possible to heat up oil first (in small amounts 50-80g). Browning onions at the same time they are soft and cooked takes longer than 5 minutes, also in a pan, the GPAs are taking this into account and that is the reason it takes longer to brown vegetables than meat (we want meat browned and juicy, we want onions browned and cooked, not crunchy >> play with time to achieve this). Remember that to brown onions they have to be cut in wedges. If you want them chopped, chop after browning, otherwise they will burn (because of liquid released while chopping raw) and taste bitter. When setting the time for the mode, please remember that the last 60 seconds there will be no heating until the temperature reduces to 125 C to allow chopping. When using Mode without GPA active the behaviour of the device is the same regarding time, temperature and motor running or not running times. This will let you experiment new uses but keep in mind you will later have to check the recipe by using the mode with GPA in manual cooking since there is no emulator and no chance to export the recipe to Cookidoo hidden. In RDPF you will only have the macros for this mode with GPA, only in the device you will have the chance to operate it without GPA by choosing the right mode icon. The non stirring time for onions is shorter than for meat because meat has to brown faster and stay juicy inside, vegetables need to cook through at the same time they get browned (except in woks where the vegetables are crunchy and do not have to brown, to emulate wok you would need highest temperature for short times and do batches of vegetables not bigger than 250 g).

Description (info in GUI): For meat that is browned and flavourful. Attention: use the splash guard to prevent hot oil splashing out of the mixing bowl. Machine behaviour during mode:

  1. Identification phase if there are enough pieces of food in the liquid - 5 seconds /Speed 2 reverse without heating.
  2. Distribute Food pieces over Heating Plate - 2 secs/speed 0.5 clockwise (between soft and 1).
  3. Heat up with [Temperature] for 60 seconds with speed 0 (no stirring).
  4. Stir for 2 sec/reverse/speed 0.5, stir 2 sec/speed 0.5, heat still with (Temperature).
  5. Heat with (Temperature) for 20 sec (no stirring).
  6. Repeat steps 4 & 5 until defined [Time] is done.
Tips and hints for use in Recipe development: To check whether only oil is poured into mixing bowl and in order to avoid it, the GPA algorithms check the mass inside the bowl (by power consumption), if there is only oil the power needed to move the knives is less. The algorithms for GPA have been developed taking into account the mass in VI NWOT recipes:

  • Highest mass where no failure occur: 600g (higher masses were not tested because of recipe result but might not cause failure because of GPA but probably would not brown properly either).
Take into account that browning or roasting smaller masses won’t work (e.g. chopped or julienned bacon) in those cases try browning at 120 ⁰C). At 120 ⁰C it is possible to heat up oil first (in small amounts 50-80g) but for very fatty meats like bacon you might need no additional fat, just more time. This mode worked with VI NWOT recipes, more fragile meats like chicken or seafood might not brown without being damaged, new scripts might be needed. If you want meat darker brown you should use bigger pieces than the size used in NWOT existing recipes to avoid drying the meat. When using Mode without GPA active the behaviour of the device is the same regarding time, temperature and motor running or not running times. This will let you experiment new uses but keep in mind you will later have to check the recipe by using the mode with GPA in manual cooking since there is no emulator and no chance to export the recipe to Cookidoo hidden. In RDPF you will only have the macros for this mode with GPA, only in the device you will have the chance to operate it without GPA by choosing the right mode icon. The non stirring time for onions is shorter than for meat because meat has to brown faster and stay juicy inside, vegetables need to cook through at the same time they get browned (except in woks where the vegetables are crunchy and do not have to brown, to emulate wok you would need highest temperature for short timesand do batches of vegetables not bigger than 250 g).

Description (info in GUI): With this mode you can make your own honeycomb, caramel brittle, caramel, lollipops and other sweets. Depending on the temperature you will end up with: thread (e.g. syrup), soft ball (e.g. fudge), firm ball (e.g. soft caramels), hard ball (e.g. nougat), soft crack (e.g. chewy sweets), hard crack (e.g. toffee), clear liquid, brown liquid (e.g. liquid caramel). Machine behaviour during mode:

  1. Heating up until 119°C is reached with speed 200 rpm (Speed 2) clockwise.
  2. Heat with [Temperature] for [Time] without stirring.
GPAs in Sugar Stages: While the scripts (machine behaviour) are the same in all cases, there are 2 different GPAs needed based on whether the recipe has fat (butter, cream..) or not in it. The aim is always the same when using higher temperatures than 120 C and Varoma, avoid that user heats up only fat. To develop recipes in RDs devices without active GPA we just need one open mode icon (without GPA) for Sugar Stages. To check if a recipe works with GPA just cook it manually using the mode icon with GPA that corresponds. Sugar Stages without fat: The algorithms work by checking the heating curve (always in order to avoid customers using existing recipe prompt to heat up only oil or other fats). What can the heating time curve show? The fastest the heat is increasing the more probable there is only fat because:
  • Fat alone heats up faster
  • Fat and sugar takes longer
  • Water or other ingredients that are not fat + sugar take even longer (this is why we need 2 different GPAs, one for recipes which have fat, another one for recipes without fat).
Sugar Stages with fat: At the same time it checks the heating time curve, it also takes into consideration the mass, therefore e.g., butter for caramel sauce and peanut brittle (30 g) should be added in one piece as much as possible and cold from the fridge so as it is not too soft. And in Caramel toffees in cubes 2-3 cm (80 g in total) also cold from the fridge. The honeycomb recipe might not work with certain types of brown sugar, it is up to you to decide whether you remove the alternative ingredient for white sugar, do check it with brown sugar and if the result is not good, remove the alternative brown sugar. Recipe development: When developing recipes, keep in mind what you want to achieve in order to set the correct temperature by using the Sugar stages chart in next slide, it is not the same for marshmallows or fudge as the temperature needed for lollipops. There are many sweet recipes in which you can use the existing NWOT recipes as a template: make different flavour toffees by adding aromas, or as they are to be part of a more complex recipe as a basic preparation (e.g. a tart with sweet shortcrust filled with caramel sauce and covered with dark chocolate ganache, popcorn balls with caramel, etc).

Varoma ® is a special setting for steam cooking and steaming of ingredients. You can adjust it in the display via the temperature selector. When you set the Varoma ® setting using the temperature selector, up to 120°C can be reached. The exact temperature depends on the ingredients used, such as oil. When steam-cooking in the Varoma ®, 250 g of water or water-based liquids evaporate within 15 minutes. During steam cooking with the Varoma ®, the maximum speed is level 6. From a speed of 6.5, heating is automatically deactivated.

No, because the highest reachable temperature is not high enough to fry your ingredients. Also, out of security reasons, this use is not intended for the TM6.

You may weigh in ingredients while the motor is running up to speed 4. Only do so when the rotation of the blades is smooth, no liquid with chunky pieces of food in the bowl, because the bumbing of peaces can destabilze the senible scale.

While doing Yogurt Fermentation with Sous-vide mode (duration: 12 hours), we recommend to use juice of half squezzed lemon or a teaspoon of Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid powder) to avoid rust in the Mixing knife. This is the unique known precedent of rusty knifes.

The base unit may not have been correctly positioned. Make sure that nothing is leaning against the base unit. Make sure that there is no tension on the power cord. Make sure that the base unit is upright. Make sure that the work surface is clean, level and not slippery. Do not touch the appliance during the entire weighing process. If none of the recommendations solve the issue. Please contact customer service.

Please check whether the protective foil is removed. If the problem remains, please shut down the TM and start it again.

My Thermomix ® TM5/TM6 is showing a system message System messages occasionally appear on the display of the Thermomix ® TM5/TM6. This does not mean that your appliance is faulty. These are usually recommendations for action which you can recognise in abbreviated form on the display. Here you will find an overview of the various system messages of the Thermomix ® TM5/TM6, along with their causes and recommended action to take.

Oxidation is a natural process. Acids or chlorine contained in dishwashing detergents may effect the protective layer on the surface and lead to this experience. Steel known as ‘stainless steel’ is very resistant to rust. The metal forms a protective layer on the surface, called a 'Chromium oxide layer’. If this protective oxide layer is damaged, e.g. when a knife is scratched, oxygen from the surroundings will immediately create a new protective layer. Cleaning instruction: Remove the mixing bowl from the Thermomix and remove the mixing knife. Now clean the inside and outside of the mixing bowl (without the mixing knife) either in hot water with cleaning agent and a soft cloth or in the dishwasher; the mixing knife, spatula, butterfly whisk, simmering basket, measuring cup, mixing bowl lid and Varoma can be cleaned in the same way. If food is sticking in the mixing bowl use a special cleansing agent fot stainless steel. Ensure that the contact pins at the bottom of the mixing bowl are always clean and dry before you nsert the mixing bowl. I necessary wipe them off. We recommend that you disassemble the mixing bowl for cleaning, especially when clean it in the dishwasher. To prevent any demage to the Thermomix, ensure that the air intakes at the back and on the bottom of the appliance are not obstructed. This is particulary important if your Thermomix has a protection grid. Be sure to remove the protection grid during cleaning.

If the knife does not grind any more it is most likely that the clutch or axis got defective. Hold the base of the mixing knife and try to rotate the blades carefully. If you are able to rotate them manually, the knife has to be replaced. Use of mixing knife Example of use/Replacement of mixing knife after Heavy I crush ice daily, mill flour, etc. => ½ year Moderate => I crush ice weekly, mill flour, etc. 2 years => Low I hardly ever crush ice or mill flour. => 4 years You can order a new mixing knife from your Thermomix® TM6 Advisor, in our online shop or at Vorwerk customer service.

If the knife is brand new, it may occur that traces of grease become visible in the mixing bowl. This grease is used for the knife assembly and is 100% food safe. Cleaning the accessories before the first use will prevent this from occurring (see manual).

The wrong ingredients may have been put into the mixing bowl. Remove the mixing bowl from the base unit and empty it. Put the empty mixing bowl back into the base unit. Restart the cooking process.

The motor has turned off.

  • Remove the mixing bowl from the base unit.
  • Reduce the quantity contained in the bowl and/or add some liquid.

You can use the spatula to press down food in the mixing bowl or to empty the mixing bowl. The spatula is also the only accessory you may use to mix or stir ingredients in the mixing bowl while motor is running (through the lid hole). Insert it from above into the bowl through the hole in the mixing bowl lid. The safety disk ensures that the spatula is not caught by the mixing knife. This means that you can use the spatula during cooking, stirring and chopping. You can remove the hot simmering basket from the mixing bowl using the hook on the spatula. Place the hook of the spatula into the notch of the simmering basket.

  1. Make sure that the hook is securely locked into place.

  3. You can remove the spatula by releasing the hook from the notch.

Safety is an essential part of every Vorwerk product. However, the product safety of Thermomix® TM6 can only be ensured if you are following the instructions. Please read the manual carefully. CHOOSING THE SETUP LOCATION

  • It is recommended you keep your Thermomix® TM6 in a permanent position in your kitchen so that you can operate it easily. Be sure to place your Thermomix® TM6 on a clean, solid and even surface so that it cannot slip.
  • Ensure that the ventilation opening on the back of the appliance is kept clean (free of grease splashes, etc.).
  • Remove the protective foil from the touchscreen and the locking arms.
  • Gently pull the power cord out of the Thermomix® TM6 housing and connect the Thermomix® TM6 to the mains power supply (220–240 V).
  • You can choose whatever length of power cord you need, up to 1 m. If you do not need the whole length of the power cord the remaining length can be kept inside the Thermomix® TM6.
  • Do not place the base unit on the power cord. If you do, it will not sit evenly on the surface.

The butterfly whisk is used for whipping cream and whisking egg whites. The butterfly whisk can also help you achieve better results when making other dishes such as puddings and sauces. It ensures that mixtures with a slightly thicker consistency are evenly mixed on a low mixing speed and helps to prevent food from burning or sticking to the bottom of the mixing bowl. HOW TO INSERT THE BUTTERFLY WHISK

  • Place the butterfly whisk onto the mixing knife and slightly turn it against the intended rotation of the mixing knife.
  • Make sure that the butterfly whisk is hooked into place and does not come off if pulled upwards.
HOW TO REMOVE THE BUTTERFLY WHISK
  • Hold the ball-shaped end of the butterfly whisk and pull it out by gently rotating in both directions. If the butterfly whisk comes into contact with the mixing knife or other accessories when the appliance is running, it could crack or break.
  • Ensure that the butterfly whisk is correctly attached to the mixing knife before setting the speed.
  • Do not exceed speed 4.
  • Do not use the spatula when the butterfly whisk is fitted.
  • Do not add any ingredients that could damage or block the butterfly whisk.

ACTIVATING REVERSE KNIFE MOVEMENT

  1. To activate the reverse knife movement briefly tap the speed dial.
FORWARD/REVERSE KNIFE MOVEMENT You can reverse the direction of the mixing knife at any speed. Reverse operation on a low speed is intended for gently stirring delicate food which is not to be chopped.
  1. Tap the speed dial to switch the direction of the mixing knife from forward (clockwise) to reverse (counter-clockwise).
  2. Counter-clockwise operation is indicated by the respective symbol on the speed dial.
  3. To revert to clockwise operation, tap the reverse symbol again, or wait until the set time has expired and the rotation is automatically set back to forward knife movement.

For even greater safety, the simmering basket is fitted with a lid. This prevents overfilling of the basket, which in itself can cause damage to the appliance. e.g. to the locking arms, if the lid is pushed upwards while cooking. It is permanently attached to the basket and should not be removed at any time.

Yes, you can search for recipes on the device even if it's currently working in pre clean mode.

Check whether the seal is turned or deformed and bring it in the correct position. In case of a cracked seal the bowl lid needs to be replaced. Check also whether the bowl rim is not deformed.

To save energy, the Thermomix® TM6 switches off automatically after 15 minutes when not in use. A message appears for the last 30 seconds, giving you the opportunity to cancel the automatic shutdown by the aid of any interaction with the device.

It is the same as for the main appliance (2 years), but of course this does not apply for smell or discolouring as this is "normal usage

International Guarantee only applies for the following countries: Germany, Spain, France, Italy, Portugal, Czech Republic, Poland, Taiwan, Mexico, China, Austria and the UK.

The guarantee will not cover you in any other destination country besided the ones mentioned above. Therefore, you will have to either but your TM locally, or pay for every repair, or buy from the local Official Distributor a complementary guarantee to cover your repairs in that country.

Most manufacturers in the world do not offer worldwide guarantees: Samsung, Canon, etc. The reason for this is that the pieces for repair, voltages, plugs, etc. are adjusted to the local markets. It would be very complicated to ensure the right repair from a differently configurated machine in another part of the world and therefore, the guarantee does not apply.
