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.
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.
