Basic Thermomix cooking tips on Cookipedia

Thanks to UK Thermomix owner Rosemary (aka JuliaBalbilla) there is now a page of essential Thermomix cooking tips on site at And this page is a keeper! In fact, unless you are skilled enough to use the Thermomix Varoma in your sleep, I suggest you’ll want to bookmark it. And remember to share with friends.

The highly useful page of Thermomix basics has been compiled and edited for our convenience by Balbilla. It contains key instructions from two basic Thermomix cookbooks: Fast and Easy Cooking and Thermomix TM31 Imprescindible para su cocina . (These are the Thermomix primers included when purchasing the machine in UK and Spain, respectively.)

Big thanks to Cookipedia’s Julia Balbilla for having volunteered to compile these helpful instructions on one single page. Her guide is the quickest way to check the Varoma steaming times of various ingredients — from asparagus to octopus and more. A second chart gives simple instructions for cooking rice and pasta in the stainless steel Thermomix bowl, plus there’s a handy chart with notes for grinding your own flour, nuts, sugars, spices and much more.

An essential resource for Thermomix fans like us –
Want to know how long to steam cauliflower or pork tenderloin in the Varoma? How long does it take to cook brown rice in the Thermomix? What about Basmati rice? How to grind rice into rice flour… how long to grind coffee beans? It’s all here and more.

This is a thorough and concise reference tool for anyone cooking with Thermomix, and one that will be especially useful for new Thermomix owners. Highly recommended for newbies and Thermomix beginners.

    I agree Julia, keep it simple. People are loving it and using it just fine where it is, as is… great basic info all in one place.

    Hi Helene. thanks for spotting this! It isn’t complete yet as am adding bits in stages. Was hoping to add to the Forum as well but am not sure how to do tables and think it might look a bit messy if it wasn’t done in tables. JB

    A great list JB, perhaps just put a link to Helene’s blog and members can go from there.
