What is a Thermomix®?

If you had asked me this very question 10 years ago, the answer would have been that the Thermomix is the revolutionary kitchen appliance that combines several functions such as: mixing, blending, milling, grating, kneading, cooking, steaming and ice cream making, just to mention a few. Since the launch of the TM5 in 2014, the answer to the same question is that the Thermomix is the world’s smallest smartest kitchen, designed to make cooking quick, easy and fun while delivering professional results and huge savings in time, money and energy in each household.

This is because, since the introduction of a touchscreen, guided cooking mode, wi-fi and bluetooth connectivity, and the subsequent addition of brand new modes (such as sous-vide, slow cook, fermentation, rice cooker and egg boiler) and attachments such as the Cutter and the Sensor, the Thermomix has set itself apart from any other so called “all in one” appliances, to become the world’s smallest smartest kitchen. In fact, the current model, the Thermomix TM6, has been classed as one of the best innovations of 2020 and  “the sous chef you have been waiting for” by the Good Housekeeping, which also rated it 10/10 in a September 2023.

Manufactured by German company Vorwerk  (est. 1883) and regularly featured on prestigious UK cookery programmes such as Masterchef and The Saturday Kitchen, the Thermomix, first launched in 1971 as VM 2000, was manufactured mainly, if not exclusively, for domestic use. It was Vorwerk France’s managing director that came up with the idea of adding the heating element to the Vorwerk’s 1961 first mixer, the VKM5, in order to create an appliance able to blend and cook at the same time, and make soups and baby food. Therefore, the Thermomix combines French design and German technology to deliver nothing but the very best to millions of households worldwide. The creation of the hybrid word “Thermomix” derives from the Greek thermo (heating) and the English mix (mixer).

In 2021 we celebrated 50 years of Thermomix, and in 2023 the 140th anniversary of Vorwerk. In 2022 I had the honour and privilege to visit Vorwerk’s HQ and factory in Wuppertal, Germany. Seeing first hand so many Thermomixes built daily, following extensive testing and years of research, will always be a memorable experience for me.

Why invest in a Thermomix?

At the present time and age when life feels ever so often manic and overwhelming, when grocery prices and the cost of going out for a meal are at an all time high, the main concerns on everyone’s mind are time (or lack of it) and how to save on our weekly budget and shopping. Therefore, the purchase of a Thermomix (or even considering it) may be met by some with skepticism. Having been an Advisor since 2016 and a Thermomix user since 2003, I find it fascinating and rewarding witnessing skeptics turn into the most passionate Thermomix users and fans. The latest one being a lady who reluctantly attended  one of my demonstrations organised by her friend and literally walked in the room almost refusing to even look at TM6. She explained that she didn’t need it in her kitchen already full with several appliances. Now, she is one of the most passionate Thermomix users and she sends me messages and pictures every time she spots a TM6 on a cooking show.

When customers say “I wish I had bought this long time ago” or “why didn’t I know about it” is because they can see and appreciate the benefits and the advantages of having a Thermomix in their kitchen. So why is the Thermomix an investment that pays off in the (not so) long term?

 

  • Huge savings: The Thermomix is an investment that pays for itself because it delivers huge savings in time, money and energy. Making your own staple food, such as bread, butter, nut milk, yoghurt, nut butter, stock paste, dips, jams, sauces and condiments can save households  thousands of pounds a year.  With the average cost of a medium pizza being £15, a Saturday night take away, turns into a very expensive dinner for anyone (not just for a family of four). The latter could easily end up with a bill of at least £45 (that’s £195 in a month and £2,340 in a year) and left wondering what happened to that night in, purposely planned to help save money towards a yearly family holiday or a deposit for a new house. On the other hand, a pizza dough can be made in just 2 minutes in the Thermomix, and cost as little as £0.72, with no mess in the kitchen and no effort whatsoever. When it comes to energy savings, cooking a soup in the Thermomix will reduce costs by 40%.
  • No waste: With Thermomix you can reduce your household’s food waste by transforming it into something tasty and nutritious while also caring for the environment. Freeze fruit that is about to expire to make a delicious sorbet, use those vegetables lingering unused in the fridge to make a very handy vegetable stock paste and you will never buy stock cubes ever again, make almond milk in the Thermomix and use the leftover almond pulp to make some delicious raw chocolate brownies, use banana peels (yes, banana peels), to make the most delicious banana peel cookies. The list is endless, but one can clearly see and appreciate the savings that can easily be achieved.
  • Catering for allergens: Living with food intolerances can unfortunately be expensive, but with a Thermomix anyone can make their own gluten free bread, gluten free pizza dough, dairy free milk, vegan food and so on at a fraction of the price they will have to pay at their local supermarket.
  • Meal planning and smart shopping: Because with Thermomix you can also do your weekly planning and shopping on the Cookidoo app, you can be certain not to buy more than you actually need for the recipes you have planned for the week, hence keep an eye on your weekly spending. What’s more, Cookidoo also enables you to compare how much your shopping basket would be from different supermarkets and choose the most budget friendly. That way you can easily do your own online shopping even more efficiently.
  • Decluttering: Because Thermomix combines over 20 appliances in 1, it enables you to declutter your kitchen of all those appliances bought in the past and perhaps hardly being used, yet still sitting in your kitchen cupboards or on your worktop. I don’t  have a scale in my kitchen, I just use the Thermomix digital scale which weighs in 1g increments. I also no longer have an egg boiler, a steamer, a soup maker, a blender, a mixer, an ice cream maker or a kneading machine; nor will I need to ever buy a rice cooker, a slow cooker, a yoghurt making appliance and so on, because I have all of them in that smart kitchen that is the Thermomix. That way my kitchen counter and cupboards are more tidy, less busy and I have more room for the things I really need.

How to purchase a Thermomix

The Thermomix can only be purchased through an official Advisor (me in this instance) and it is not sold in department stores, even the most prestigious ones, nor on the actual Vorwerk website. The reason being that Vorwerk, one of the largest direct sales companies in the world, firmly believes in offering anyone the opportunity to experience the magic of the Thermomix at a demonstration in their own home. Purchasing a Thermomix is therefore different from buying any other kitchen gadget, because you don’t just go to the till or online and pay for it; you actually get to see the Thermomix in action and taste the food made with it before investing in it. Although, some choose not to have a face to face (or since Covid, a virtual) demo, I always encourage these customers to arrange a post delivery Welcome Visit. The latter is as an opportunity for me to offer you hints and tips on how to make the most of your investment, and for you to ask me any questions about your Thermomix.

The Thermomix costs £1,189. The price is the same, whether you buy one, three or ten. Any online listings advertising the Thermomix at a lower price are most likely scams. Unfortunately, I have met many customers falling prey of online fraudsters in order to save some money and they ended up losing their money and never actually receiving a Thermomix.

The Thermomix TM6 comes with FREE DPD delivery, 2 year standard warranty (which can be extended to 5 years)*, 6 months FREE subscription to Cookidoo (our online recipe platform featuring over 83,000 recipes worldwide) and of course ongoing help and support from myself as your Advisor.

We offer several payment options:

1) Earn For FREE (join my team and earn a free TM6 with just 4 sales in 90 days)
2) One single payment (we accept Visa and Mastercard)
3) Financing up to 48 months** (no deposit but subject to credit check)
4) Divided payments (1 deposit followed by 3 monthly payments- no credit check required)

* Commercial Customers receive 1 year warranty. Payment must be done via bank transfer upon the issue of a Proforma Invoice which I can request on your behalf. I can also request a Proforma Invoice for International customers, but please note that delivery has to be arranged to a UK address. 

**Financing offered by Novuna Finance and it is available on 12,24,36 and 48 months. The application takes 5-10 minutes to complete and the outcome is usually instant. The soft search will not leave a footprint on your credit score, so you can apply even if uncertain about your current credit rating. 0% finance is always available on orders over £1,349 (this can easily be achieved by adding extras like the extended warranty, a second bowl with £9 discount, or any other combination of accessories, that can help you reach the required minimum of £1,349.
