Thermomix spatula add-on: Super Spatula comes with free shipping

Important news: click to see updated Super Spatula now available in the Kitchen Kit shop!

First let’s be clear — the Super Spatula is not made by Vorwerk, nor is it an ‘official’ Thermomix product.  And you know what? It doesn’t need to be! This high-quality silicone spatula stands alone as an indispensable kitchen tool. But it happens to fit so well with Thermomix, that we have to wonder how we ever managed without it. In fact, I use it as often as I use my Thermomix! So in all fairness, it’s a must-share for the blog. (And yes they are for sale, right here.)

Super Spatula is an add-on that enhances the Thermomix cooking experience. As we all know, Thermomix includes a highly specialized spatula with each purchase of the machine. And we love that spatula for it’s unique, highly functional design. The Super (Silicone) Spatula serves a different function, and it is equally valued in my Thermomix kitchen. Here’s why: It’s length means the spatula is of great help when pushing food down from sides of bowl. The longer, streamlined design also makes it extremely efficient at removing food from the bowl when all is done. The spatula’s slim-but-solid profile means it will swiftly wipe swipe and remove contents more quickly than other spatulas and this saves time!

Note the video below shows an earlier model of the Super Spatula, sold in the Kitchen Kit shop during 2012 and early 2013. In mid 2013 the super spatula was updated to a new brighter, single piece silicone construction.

And there’s more! Meet the “great little brush” — also on this video. It cleans the blades and base of the machine better than anything else I’ve tried. Both the spatula and brush are available from the Kitchen Kit Shop now part of SuperKitchenMachine.com

Why this spatula? Why Kitchen Kits? Why a new store?
As Thermomix fans we share an appreciation for quality tools and this spatula is quite simply better than those usually seen in stores. It’s a great fit with Thermomix. Since I started using this spatula (after the arrival of Thermomix two years ago) I’ve wanted to find a way to share it with others. But it wasn’t an easy product to recommend. It it is only sold in a few specialty shops whose shipping costs were prohibitive for global Thermomix fans. After months of trying to find a way to easily recommend it to Thermomix lovers in ALL countries, I realized the only way to do so was to sell this spatula directly from this wee shop.

Prices include international shipping — no matter where you live!
Being unabashedly frugal means I want to keep these tools affordable to all other Thermomix fans. This is why they are being bundled as kits, and this is why they are being sold, packaged and shipped directly by me. For the past month I’ve been busy sourcing Super Spatula and the great little brush (both of which are essential to my own kitchen) so that I can best share them with you. I calculated that by bundling three or more items of certain weight, the shipping can be affordable to all. I’ve worked hard to make it possible for these “Kitchen Kits” to qualify for the best AIRMAIL rate, and pass on the savings to you. This should make it super easy for anyone, anywhere, to shop for super spatulas ;-)

    This spatula rocks. Since I’m not affiliated with Vorwerk/Thermomix, I can freely say that I preffer it to the original one. Of course, you can’t use it when the machine is running but for everything else, it’s simply the best. I love how you can scrape the whole bowl in just one go and how the tip is just perfectly shaped to get the stuff between the blades.

    Hi Cristina… Yes, the response was simply overwhelming! Much more than expected! I am so sorry about this, as I hate to disappoint people but the supply relies on others and as such is beyond my control. I will announce when more stock arrives, for SURE! Thanks so much for your patience :)

    Hi again to you Cristina — I’m not sure if you noticed this or not but there is a notification service you can opt in to, for getting an email reminder when there is new stock of spatulas. You can read more about that on this page. (It’s a no-obligation reminder service only — not a pre-order service.) Also, there will be a few more kits available in about 24 hours from time of this writing. I was able to find some from another supplier as I wait for the bulk of my next shipment to arrive. People who signed up to be notified will hear about this first, when they arrive. I expect this second shipment will sell out very quickly too. (sorry) but the next shipment is HUGE, so all will soon be resolved.

    I saw your video on facebook (posted by Quirky Cooking!) and bought the Thermomix Lovers kit straight away for my husband’s birthday! Looks like I got in just in time! He loves our Thermy and I have to fight him to get a ‘turn’! Combine that with his general love of kitchen gadgets and I’ve got the perfect gift for a hard to buy man! Shared the clip on facebook for my dozens of Thermomix obsessed friends and they are all keen to get their hands on a spatula too! They are waiting for the demonstrators kit to come back in stock to split it between them. Can’t wait for ours to arrive (in Australia) – it looks amazing, exactly what we’ve all been waiting for! Thanks!

    H Steph! Wow, so nice of you to take time to comment here — thank you! Thanks also for letting me know regarding the video on fb etc, (I did not know because I don’t have time to visit fb enough) Yes, you did luck out if you got a kit yesterday as the Thermomix Lover’s Kit is the one that is most in demand. The demonstrator’s kit has quite a long list of people waiting to be notified when it’s back in stock too! (The ones that came in yesterday were ‘grabbed’ right off the virtual shelves… it was a bit of a frenzy in the store ;-)

    I’m so happy if this spatula can fill a need. All I know is that personally, I can’t live without mine. Going back to a regular spatula after getting used to this one is like going back to a food processor after getting used to cooking with Thermie. (not possible!) Feel free to let your friends know that they should be back in stock in about 2-3 weeks. Thanks and best wishes, H.

    Received mine – thanks so much Helene. Well made & very useful tools and the extra length of the spatula is great. These will sell very well as has already been proven by you selling out of the first batch so quickly. Thanks again Helene, much appreciated .

    Firstly I was impressed with how quickly I received my super spatula and brush kit. As soon as I received it I used it to aid cooking an amazing beef curry in my Thermomix. I have a couple of pampered chef spatulas that worked better than the standard issue spatula. I now have to say that I will reach for my super spatula first. Thank you for supplying the super spatula and making it easy for international customers to order.

    Wow Sonya, you made my day! Thanks for coming back here to comment. I’m glad to hear you like the spatula and that you were satisfied with the service. I am trying my best to make the orders arrive quickly as possible for international Thermomix fans but there have been a few ‘bumps in the road’ where the German customs office is concerned. (Thank goodness for the patience and understanding of those Thermomix fans in Germany whose orders were delayed by their own postal system…)

    I just want to remind you Sonya, if you haven’t done so already -> consider adding your review in the store too… for your chance to win a copy of the NEW Thermomix cookbook from Vorwerk. The draw for this will be May 15 — good luck!

    Wow Maria, thank you for coming back here after buying your kitchen kit — and leaving the best comment ever!!!.

    This really means a lot to me because I work hard to give the best possible service in the shop. The most important thing for me is not to make money, but to share the experience of these helpful tools with other Thermomix fans. That’s the fun! In the first few weeks (February 2012), delivery was slower, but now all systems work perfectly and delivery to Spain and Australia is incredibly fast. You received your kit in less than one week! I receive emails each day from happy Kitchen Kit shoppers around the world with similar stories and this is truly the best reward. Still, some countries (Germany) don’t deliver as well, so be happy that you live in Spain ;-)

    Gracias Maria!
