Always developing modes solutions
We are always working on developing new solutions to make the Thermomix® TM6 even more functional for you. That is why your Thermomix® TM6 can receive our new modes automatically, adding even more functionalities to your favourite kitchen appliance. To get the new modes you need to connect your Thermomix® TM6 to Cookidoo®, and the modes will then be installed on your Thermomix TM6. You do not need an active subscription in order to receive the modes.
To achieve the best cooking results with the modes, we also recommend that you keep your Thermomix® up to date with the latest firmware version.
More information on the latest Thermomix® TM6 firmware updates can be found here.
Overview of the TM6 modes
|Warm-up mode: Heats and reheats sauces, soups, and further liquids efficiently without breaking chunks of food within. Food to be warmed must be liquid or creamy. The butterfly whisk is not mandatory, but it is highly recommended for quantities over 250g.|
|Thickening mode: In this mode you can thicken sauces such as vanilla pudding, béchamel, and other sauces with eggs, egg yolk, flour, and cornflour. Milk, cream, or baby food may be warmed without burning.|
|Rice cooking mode: The rice cooking mode allows you to cook many types of rice or bulgur, up to 500g at the touch of a button.|
|Egg boiler mode: Boil between 2 and 6 size M Eggs in your Thermomix® TM6. Insert the eggs into the mixing bowl and add water up to the 1 Litre mark on the mixing bowl. Select one of the five cooking points: soft, medium soft, medium, medium-hard and hard|
|Fermentation: This mode can be used to ferment yogurt or prove a yeast dough in a warm environment.|
|Sous-vide: Method for tender meat, fish, and vegetables.|
|Slow Cook: A gentle method for cooking dishes that take a bit longer.|
|Blend: Get great results with purées, soups, and smoothies in this mode.|
|Scale: Weighs in 1g intervals.|
|Dough: Prepare all types of dough quickly and easily. You will achieve great consistency and professional smoothness – no lumps guaranteed!|
|Turbo: Chop like a pro with high speeds of up to 10,700 rotations per minute.|
|Improved Pre-clean: Now you may select one of the four different variations of cleaning depending on the soiling of the bowl (dough, universal, fat & caramel, and browning) making the cleaning results more efficient.|
|Kettle: Heat water to 37–100°C for making tea, preparing baby bottles, or cooking pasta.|
Peeler: Use this mode with the Thermomix® Blade Cover with Peeler for automatic peeling of vegetables with the TM6. Place the peeler on the mixing knife so that the curves of the peeler match the shape of the mixing knife and make sure that the peeler is properly hooked (the peeler should now sit firmly on the mixing knife and can only be removed with a little resistance) Add 600g of water and a maximum of 800g of vegetables (e.g. potatoes) to the mixing bowl. For best results, the vegetable pieces should not be larger than the mixing bowl lid opening. For most vegetables, 4 minutes is recommended to remove the peel.
