The benefits of having a second bowl, blade and lid set

You’ve already experienced the time and money-saving benefits of cooking with Thermomix – now imagine what you can do with a second bowl, blade, and lid set!

It was my daughter’s birthday last month and of course, I had to bake her a cake. Her favourite is my vanilla cake with buttercream icing. Whilst I have a well-stocked larder, it’s not that well stocked when she says she wants to take a second cake back to school. I needed more icing sugar and having a second bowl handy to make a new batch of icing sugar from granulated is always helpful.

Since I do a lot of baking, I love having two bowls for suddenly having to mill that sugar or almonds, or even when I suddenly need ground cinnamon and only have cinnamon sticks. Two bowls are ever so handy and probably, in my opinion, the best accessory to have with a Thermomix.

Top 5 reasons for having a second bowl, blade, and lid set.

  1. Make ingredients from scratch – mill almond meal, icing sugar, or grated Parmesan cheese without stopping the flow of your recipe. Save time when you need to mill sugar, spices, or grains or grate cheese mid recipe.
  2.  A sparkling clean bowl is a secret to fluffy whipped egg whites and meringue. Use your second bowl to whip your egg whites, and keep your first to continue on with the rest of the recipe. Two of our favourites are the Chiffon Cake and Chocolate Mousse.
  3. Simply being able to swap bowls to reduce cleaning or save time when waiting for ingredients to cool or rest
  4. If you’re catering for special dietary requirements, you may like to allocate one bowl for those recipes to avoid cross-contamination.
  5. Keep one bowl for sweet dishes and one for savoury meals like curries, especially handy if you don’t want your lid stained with turmeric for those who use it.

You can purchase your second through me as an Advisor, at any point. They are priced at £169 and it’s money spent well. It is delivered by DPD courier, which is fully tracked and traced and with free shipping.

Espresso Martini

Espresso Martini is what you make for after dinner drinks, or when you need a pick-me-up but don’t want to fall behind the pack on a night out and here’s a simple recipe to make in your Thermomix.

The Espresso Martini was invented by the famous bartender Dick Bradsell, as a peculiar request from a British top model in his London bar in 1983.⁣

The espresso martini is a cold, coffee-flavored cocktail made with vodka, espresso coffee, coffee liqueur, and sugar syrup. It is not a true martini as it contains neither gin nor vermouth, but is one of many drinks that incorporate the term into their names

It’s got a jolt of caffeine with creamy flavour and a buzz of booze. It’s a true classic to kick back with! ⁣

The differences between TM5 and TM31

For those interested in finding out the differences in the previous and current models, here’s a quick and handy guide that should help.
