You have to buy them through a demonstrator, so you will need to contact the UK Thermomix office to arrange a free demo. You do get one book with the machine and usually an extra one. I agree there isn't a lot of books generally available, but some can be got from TM UK - see and scroll down to the end of the page.

I have also started a Thermomix section on Cookipedia and have added almost 200 recipes as well. Also a great many recipes on the Thermomix Forum;c=3;sa=collapse;sesc=c12f58778aade5c6328424bc502da287#3

Finally, if you have even a smattering of a language such as Spanish, French, or German, there is a selection of books on their respective Amazon sites.

Good Morning J. C. !
I posted quite a few recipes for jams on the 'Cookery Forum' on the - 'Jam recipes for the Kenwood Bread Maker' thread a couple of months back - and at least two of them were for Rhubarb? There was a very nice one with Rhubarb & Pineapple too. Will these work in your Thermomix? I would have thought so?.....but, as I don't have one myself, I can't be 100% sure?.....? - see what you think, anyway!

I'd like to give you a link to send you straight there but I don't know how, sorry!!!
(*I really must ask French how she does it!*) Anyway, I really hope that they are what you are looking for?! :o>

Morning sunshine,thanks for replying will try and find them, any other good ideas for rhubarb,I am not that keen but he who must be obeyed loves the stuff and keeps cutting it and in the freezer it goes for a later date and there it rests for ever !

Don't know if this is the only way to do this, but if you right-click on the 'Permalink' of the post that you want to reference and copy the URL, you can then paste it into a reply and the link will take the person directly to your post. If that makes sense... :-)

Clicked on Permalink - nothing happened?
I'm not very good at this technology, Sam? What is supposed to happen?

At the moment I'm working on my tablet... but if you right-click on the link, a menu should come up and there should be an option to copy the URL. I'll have a look later on my laptop. Remind me if I forget...

I have x2 thermomixes, 1 for over 7 years and now lives in my holiday home and still works a treat, the others with me daily, with an additional jug..... I could not imagine my life without it. It has saved me huge amounts of money, enabled me to be creative with little fuss, clutter or hassle.... Never had an error or failure. I initially bought due to my husband having a serious illness and decide to go 100% organic, and what I find over the years, more and more of what I cook I am enabled to fully utile all the bi-products of the foods and cosmetics etc that I am making..... I TOTALLY LOVE THERMOMIX and strongly believe everyone should can all the clutter and get one for a great creative and healthy lifestyle.

Fab! Thanks for the post Mrs Lea...I have craved one for ages so have a moneybox that may finance it later. It does sound like a good bit of equipment. I've watched the demos on line and it seems very easy to use...lucky you!

In reply to an earlier post on 24 Aug 2012 12:26:03 BDT
You won't regret it..... That I promise. I make my own spreadable butter, lazy garlic, lazy ginger, bread daily milling my own grains, I even make my own bath salts and culinary rubs.... The possibilities are endless and it will be something you will even want to take on holidays with you! Enjoy.

Where did you get all this information from,I have one and definitely do not use it to its full potential!

Posted on 24 Aug 2012 15:35:31 BDT
I bought my 1st TM in Australia and they have loads of enterprising people and a great network of cooking classes as well as some great books.... If you want any instructions or help, just google..... And then the world is your creative and culinary delight! Otherwise, get in touch with them and ask to be added to their newsletters. In Portugal (where my home is) they have monthly glossy magazines for TM, they call it Bimby..... There's a whole world of TM culture out there.... Shame not to get fully on board.

Yes, they are indeed very popular in Australia and @JC Galland, try looking through the recipes on this forum You will find non-food recipes as well. Although it was set up by a English chap who also lives in Portugal, most of the members are from Australia. They are also called Bimby in Italy. I think it is because the name Thermomix already had a trademark in Italy and Portugal for an unrelated machine (not cooking) before the TM was introduced there. Also go onto Facebook and you will find several groups relating to the TM in various languages.

julia...I looked too and it seems to be a nickname for the Thermomix. I put Thermomix bimby in the search engine and it came up with does look like aa nifty machine!

I've never seen a Thermomix. Is it similar to the KenwoodWinware Kenwood Cooking Chef. They've got one in our local Makro. I always have a quick drool at the Kenwood Ches when im in there. I'm waiting for my food processor to die!

happy have a look at the web's amazing, very popular in Portugal it seems. Yhey have the nickname Bimby.
It cooks from scratch and has a reverse blade that stops food becoming too smooth. I don't know that much about it just what I've seen on here and I've watched the video.
Very expensive but I'm told it's so worth it!
