What is “Bimby”?

Thermomix, aka Bimby!

People who don’t yet own a Thermomix often hear the word “Bimby” associated with the popular kitchen machine and wonder what this means.

The super kitchen machine has two names: Thermomix and Bimby
Thermomix is the official registered trademark name for our favorite kitchen machine, but in some countries, it also carries the name “Bimby”. (Pronounced bim-bee)

Bimby is a registered trademark for Thermomix in Portugal and in Italy. This is due to the fact that the name “Thermomix” was already in use by another home appliance in those countries and could not be registered by Vorwerk.  Since Portugal and Italy are countries where Thermomix is most popular, this term has spread beyond those borders. Like the machine itself, this friendly term has been embraced around the world. For global Thermomix fans, the two names are often interchangeable.

Thermomix may be its official name, but Bimby is its friendly nickname. Millions of Thermomix users like to refer to this helpful kitchen appliance as their Bimby, and so do we!
