Thermomix Virtual Demonstration

South Asian Thermomix Cooking Class

Recording of our South Thermomix South Asian Class on Saturday 20th March 2021.

We, as a team, have been doing several virtual cooking classes since lockdown and it’s a real joy for us. It gives us an opportunity to do some team activities and really does feel like a team, as well as sharing our hints & tips with you. This was particularly special for me as both David and Richard have recently been recruited as Advisors on our Owners Program. They haven’t even met in person, yet I think they pulled off a fabulous class! I’m so proud to have them on my team.

We’d love to see the culinary creations you’ve been inspired to make since the Class, so please share your photos on the Facebook Page or Group and Instagram of your Thermomix® Advisor – don’t forget to #thermomixukandireland and our Advisor Here is the Instagram handles of today’s team, please do hashtag us on any of the dishes you make after the class.

Do come back to me with feedback on the class, we’d love to hear your comments and also suggestions for future virtual classes. You can do this either by replying to my email or if you would like to share your feedback publicly, you can do this via this Google link (One Girl and her Thermie)

Finally, whilst these classes are offered free and to Thermomix customers, during the lockdown, I’m personally asking if you are able to give a donation then please do. I am supporting a charity that helps feeds people. The Trussell Trust has pledged to stop people from going hungry across the country. With more than 1,200 food bank centres across its network, the charity will spend any donations on getting meals to those who need them most right now. At times like this, I am more aware of those not as fortunate as we may be, so request if you can spare a pound, two or ten, to stop help UK poverty and hunger, then please donate here

If you would like to book a demonstration or find out more, please contact me on or call/text/ WhatsApp me on 07977 563537

Tasty Thursday: Diwali Sweets

Recording of my Tasty Thursday workshops; a regular slot where I offer themed virtual demonstrations of Thermomix TM6. This week, I was delighted to introduce some Diwali Sweets given that Diwali is this weekend.

Please find below the recipes we cooked together today.

Milk Powder Burfi

Motichoor Laddoo 

Kulfi and other authentic Indian recipes are available in the Indian Cookbook on my website. As mentioned this was the book that was sold to Indian customers when the Delhi distributor sold Thermomix TM31s.

There were a number of guests on the call today, but only a handful shared their videos. Don’t be shy. Think of these virtual demonstrations as ways for us to interact and for me to problem-solve. It’s much more enjoyable if you have your screen on so I can see your reactions and whether you are enjoying the demonstration …or not.

I am an Independent Advisor, so I pride myself in honestly and looking after my customer base to the best of my ability. You can read my reviews on my Google page here. If you enjoyed the demonstration, then do please leave a review. As a small business, all interactions do raise my profile, so if you don’t mind leaving a comment, I’d be very thankful.

Thank you for sharing my Diwali celebrations with me. 

We all fight together this pandemic, pray for all those families who have lost loved ones, broken relationships, lost jobs and hope the best to come for everyone just as Diwali teaches us that light triumphs over darkness, good over evil, knowledge over ignorance.

If you would like to book a demonstration or find out more, please contact me on or call/text/ WhatsApp me on 07977 563537.

I am an Independent Advisor, so I pride myself on honesty and looking after my customer base to the best of my ability. You can read my reviews on my Google page here.

Thermomix is a direct sales business

How many times have I been asked if Thermomix is a pyramid scheme so I wanted to set the record straight; we are a direct sales business. Thermomix is a direct sales business. Let me explain.

Direct selling is selling products directly to consumers in a non-retail environment. Instead, sales occur at home, work, online, or other non-store locations. That is why as a Thermomix Advisor and Team Leader, we offer demonstrations, called Cooking Experiences to showcase the product. This in non-Covid times is a face-to-face demonstration at your home or mine, whether we cook three or four recipes in the comfort of a home environment and you get to see, touch, hear, smell and taste the recipes we cook together. In Covid-times, we have also gone online offering a virtual cooking experience via Zoom.

Having been an Advisor for over 12-years and sold to countless delighted customers, I love to think the sales process is enjoyable, pressure-free but gives you a chance to make informed purchase decisions. Some customers buy on the spot – even halfway through the demonstration, others take the time to make this considered purchase – a day later, a week, a month…I have customers who have even come back to me 5 years later. Don’t believe me? Please read my independent Google reviews.

How direct selling works

Direct selling eliminated several intermediaries involved in product distribution, such as regional distribution or wholesales. Instead, products go straight from the manufacturer to the direct sales company, then to the distributor or representation, and then finally to the consumer. The products sold through direct sales channels are usually not found in typical retail stores, which means finding a rep is the only method to buy the product.

Sounds like Thermomix, doesn’t it? Yes, absolutely. In this case, Vorwerk is the manufacturer of Thermomix and actually wholly own their direct sales channels and distribution network. Around the world, we have regional offices which are subsidiaries of Vorwerk; here in the UK, it is Vorwerk UK our head office. I am an authorised and recognised agent of Thermomix UK, which is why I have an Advisor ID: 8000000068 (previously 210220044).

Direct selling takes place when individual salespeople reach out to consumers. In the Thermomix business model, we use the single-level and host or party-plan model to achieve this, and Advisors are paid a commission on closed sales.

Thermomix Cooking Experiences

Single-level direct sales are performed one-on-one through an in-person presentation or online meeting. Host or party plans are made in a  group setting, usually involving the agent going to the potential customers’ homes.

I personally, offer and enjoy both.

Hosting a Thermomix Cooking Experience with 3 friends enables you to qualify for a host gift which could be a Thermomix cook or branded accessory, but it also allows you and your friends to have groupthink. Having friends around may encourage them to ask questions, that you alone may not have considered. That can be useful. Plus, there’s also enough food from the demonstration once I have left to enjoy a nice lunch or dinner with your guests; after all, we do cook a 3-course meal in under 45 minutes in the kitchen, so think of it as a private dinner party where we cook your meal. It’s usually the host who may make a purchase decision first as they have researched the Themromix or are familiar with it, which is why they are hosting a demo in the first place, but occasionally guests do buy too at a later date.


However, for those not keen on getting a group together, I am always happy to do one-to-ones with your immediate household too. The advantage of that is that I can really personalise the demonstration to you and your needs, and get to know you. After one-to-ones, I not only come out of a demonstration, usually with a sale but also a friend too having spent one and half hours with you swapping holiday & travel tips, school recommendations, or decorating tips. I often come out of one-to-one, not as the sales representative of Thermomix but as a customer myself, buying services from you; anything from booking a family photoshoot, locking in a solicitor for house conveyancing, or music tuition recommendations, so you never know where the demonstration will take you or me. It’s one of the things I love best about this role. It’s a chance to meet like-minded individuals and spend a few hours getting to know them.

Direct sales sometimes are mistakenly referred to as multi-level marketing (MLM) or network marketing, but these terms are not interchangeable. While MLM and network marketing are a form of direct sales, not all direct sales systems involve MLM. For instance, in the Thermomix transaction, which I would call single-level marketing, the sales agent is only paid a commission on the sale they personally make – i.e. a sale of a Thermomix. We do not take any commission on any accessories or books that you buy at the point of sale or later on. I am very clear about that. I believe in being transparent and honest. It’s also the reason why many of my customers refer me to their friends and family, neighbours, and work colleagues.

This is the same reason we are not a pyramid scheme. Most pyramid schemes will keep the income stream going by charging fees and requiring distributors to regularly purchase a certain amount of products – even if they don’t need it. Again, once you have bought your Thermomix, that’s it. (Unless you want another or an upgrade…)

There is a recruitment opportunity, but we only mention that as a method of purchasing. There are 3 ways to buy a Thermomix. One payment, Ikano finance and Earn and demonstrate program as I did. I have been an Advisor for so long, that we have had upgrades during my time in the business. So whilst, I did purchase my very first Thermomix as a customer and then became an Advisor. In the past, I have earned by Thermomixes by selling in an incentive period and this is a great way to either join the business for the business opportunity or earn your Thermomix so pay with your time, not your wallet.

Benefits of direct selling

The beauty of a direct sales business like Thermomix, especially in the current climate, direct selling offers important benefits to people who want an opportunity to earn income and build a business of their own. In these uncertain COVID times, it’s the perfect opportunity to earn a little extra on the side, if you have been furloughed or made redundant, and looking for a stop-gap until you find your next job.

So like well-established direct sales companies such Amway or Avon, Vorwerk/Thermomix is just like any other business opportunity where you have honest, hard-working individuals selling a fabulous product they truly believe in. Someone who just wants to do good, honest work. Anyone can be an Advisor and I have men and women in my team, who work full-time, part-time, or were house persons before they took this role. The role fits in around their main career and family life. We have all ages and all ethnicities. But together we form the most amazing and supportive team. We form a Thermomix family.

Your sales representative or Thermomix Advisor in this instance is a known entity. A real person. When someone makes an inquiry, has a cooking experience with me, or purchases, I save your details. Not in a stalker way, but it means that if you email, call or text me, you don’t have to explain who you are and go through identity checks to an unknown call-centre operative before you explain why you are contacting me. I already know who you are and we can just take it from there.

My name is Ankita. I have been a Thermomix owner for over 12-years and an Advisor just 2-months shy of that. I live and breathe Thermomix and that’s why I am an Advisor; to share my passion for this innovative kitchen robot with anyone who eats. I hope you’ll join me on this Thermomix Advisor journey.

Eco-Friendly Christmas Market

It was only meant to be a small event bringing together a few eco-friendly brands with Christmas wares but it’s turned into a Virtual Christmas Festival! We’ve got mini sessions on cooking (if you can call making cocktails and biscuits cooking), paper making, and, in keeping with the festival vibe, how to camp out at home (i.e. how to create a mini-retreat in your own home or garden – and let’s face it, who doesn’t need that right now?)

This was a live event on Thursday 10th December from 11am-2pm. My Thermomix Cooking demonstration starts at 1:32 on the video where I made:
