What is a Thermomix Thermo Server?

Read below for update — January 16, 2011

Not just a pretty bowl!
The Thermomix Thermo Server has many practical uses. It is much appreciated by those who own it and coveted by those who do not.  Like a ‘Thermos”, this high-quality insulated stainless steel bowl keeps food hot or cold for extended periods — at least two hours.  The sleek thermal bowl suits every kitchen decor and comes with necessary plastic lid (not shown in photos above, sorry) and base plate, making it easy to carry and present at table.

How to use it?
If you are making two separate recipes in the Thermomix, the Thermo Server provides a way to keep one food hot while you prepare the second. For example… cook a sauce first in Thermomix, set aside in the Thermo Server, and then cook rice in Thermomix to enjoy both foods hot at the same time. Similarly, it keeps things cold as you serve.

If a family member is late for a meal, put their portion in the Thermo Server to stay warm without need to reheat.

Thermo Server is popular for helping with the following Thermomix recipes:

  • soup stays warm at table
  • sorbet and ice cream (keeps it cold at table while serving)
  • yogurt (acts as an excellent incubator)
  • couscous
  • keeps crepes warm as you make them
  • also works great as a container for ice
  • helps keeps fruit salads and seafood salads fresh longer

Do not underestimate the usefulness of simplicity
The Thermo Server sounds simple… and it is. But like the wheel… it is very simple and very practical. I’ve searched high and low and could not find another thermal bowl like it.  It’s subtly stylish and seductively serviceable — I am ssso thankful each time I use it.

How to get one?
Thermo Servers are made available through special promotions… ask your Thermomix consultant!

    Hi,
    I live in Norway and the thermo server is not available here. Can anyone tell me how I can get a hold of one? Would really love to have one. Thanks.

    Hi Kari Anne: Yes, the Thermo Server can be a little bit hard to get, so if you see it offered — go for it! Sometimes it is offered as special promotional item and I recommend you ask your consultant about it. This blog has many readers in Europe and yes, there are others like you in Norway. You are not alone — maybe somebody closer to you will post a suggestion. If they send me a private response I will forward it to you.

    I use my Thermo Server all the time, it is such an important part of my kitchen, I hope you find one soon!

    To Kari Anne: I have bought my thermo server at a hardware store (in Norway) called Jernia. I use my Thermomix every single day, and find it really fantastic.
    Best regards.

    Hi – I used the thermo server this evening for the first time and it didn’t keep the food hot – does it need to be warmed with hot water ie like a thermos?
    Cheers,
    Susannah

    Hi Susannah — First, thanks for writing! For me the Thermo Server works well. I guess maybe to be more clear I would say it doesn’t keep the food really HOT, but keeps it warm and the cooling is very slow, (taking hours to reach room temperature instead of minutes). Great for soup, rice, sauces, vegetables or chilled foods. I haven’t tried the pre-warming technique yet, but it sounds like a good idea!

    I recently purchased a TM31 from Canada. I live in the US, but I have a sneaking suspicion that I will not get one of these. Since no one shows Thermomix in the US, I would love to know how I can get one, or several of these. Anyone have any suggestions?

    I was lucky enough to receive one with the purchase of my Thermomix. It kept my risotto warm for about 6 hours. I did not have to microwave/heat it up, and have taken it on picnics to keep my food warm. I promote it, and my mother in law mentioned how she would love one! So every time she comes to visit I check it is still in the cupboard. :)

    Yup, it’s an EXTREMELY useful ‘tool’, isn’t it? Every home should have one!

    If you go to “Forum Thermomix” and do a search for “Thermoserver”, you will find that a comparison of the Thermoserver and the Indian insulated or double walled pots keep the food hot longer than the Thermoserver. This could be a way of getting around having to wait until one gets a Thermoserver. I purchased two sizes of the Indian pots at an Indian kitchen store in Toronto.

    Hello there.
    My friend came over recently and inadvertently put the thermoserver base in the oven!
    Now completely warped.
    Is it possible to purchase a base on its own?
    Thanks

    Hi Helene, I made a soup the other day, poured it into my TS at 90 degrees and 1.5h later it was just warm enough to eat. I noticed the bowl was warm outside. I believe it is broken…. Do they get warm when you put hot stuff in. I know my Thermo Bottle was broken when it was getting warm outside and didn’t hold the heat… Thanks heaps

    Hi Ellen: After receiving your question I tested my own ThermoServer which I’m quite sure is performing properly. It too feels warm on the outside after hot food has been in there for some time. But I’m confident this is normal. I think the air between the steel walls acts as insulation and slows down heat loss, but doesn’t stop it altogether. I also use various double wall glasses for my daily tea and coffee and these too get warm on the outside though they are performing just fine. The heated ingredients inside the vessel stays hotter, longer… but there is still some heat transference. Not sure if this is helpful or not…. you may want to ask at the head office which issued you the ThermoServer, they should know best. Happy mixing, H.
