This month thermomix are giving qualifying customers a free 2.6L thermoserver when they purchase a TM5 in addition to the 2.6L thermoserver you can get for hosting a demo that is linked to your TM5 purchase. So what is a thermoserver and why would you want two of them???
A thermoserver is a double walled stainless steel container which comes with a lid and a base dish. Its insulated so it keeps the food you put in it at a steady temperature. If you have been to a demo you’ve probably seen one in action. You can purchase a thermoserver when you host a demonstration (without purchasing a thermomix), will receive one free if you purchase a thermomix at your own demo (or if you have a delivery demo within 3 months of purchase) or occasionally you will receive one as a bonus gift with purchase.
Here are just a few ideas of what you can do with a thermoserver:
- Serve hot food in it.
- Serve cold food in it.
- Cook pasta in it.
- Cook rice in it.
- Cook couscous in it – 1 cup of couscous, 1 cup of boiling water with butter and salt to taste, put the lid on for 5 minutes, done.
- Cook fresh corn cobs by placing them in boiling water in it while the rest of your meal is cooking.
- Keep one part of your meal warm while your thermomix cooks the second part (curry and rice for example).
- Keep meals and sides warm/hot until you’re ready to eat (This is what we use ours for the most. I often need to pick Mr Mixie up around dinner time so I cook a meal in the late afternoon and its hot and ready to serve when we get home.).
- Keep pancakes/pikelets/crepes warm while you cook the rest of the batch.
- Keep wraps/tortillas/naan bread warm while you cook the rest of the batch.
- Incubate yogurt.
- Great for proving dough.
- Keep salads cold on the table.
- Use it as an ice bucket.
- Keep meat warm in it whilst barbecuing.
- Rest risottos in it.
Do you have a thermoserver? How do you use yours? More ideas here, here, here and here.
The Thermomix steaming basket also fits perfetly inside the 2.6L Thermoserver. Place your basket containing cooked rice or potatoes into the thermoserver to stay warm or place the steaming basket inside the thermoserver before adding pasta and boiling water to make removing and draining your cooked pasta a breeze!
As always, feel free to contact me if you want more information about the thermomix, would like to see it in action or want one in your home!
