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)
- 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!
