6 tips and tricks with the Simsafix® steam juicer insert

6 Tipps und Tricks mit dem Simsafix® Dampfentsafter-Einsatz - Wundermix GmbH

Our Simsafix is ​​the all-round Thermomix accessory of the year!

Even though it is primarily used for steam juicing, Simsafix offers many other functions and uses.
Our tips and tricks will show you completely new possibilities for what you can use your Thermomix for.

1) Melt the chocolate and the mixing bowl stays clean

For small amounts of chocolate, it is hardly worth getting the entire mixing bowl dirty.
In the end, too much chocolate is left in the gaps that can no longer be used and the cleaning effort is disproportionate.
Melting chocolate with Simsafix is ​​easy, safe and clean.

That's how it's done:

  1. Fill 1200g water into the mixing bowl and insert Simsafix so that it floats on the water.
  2. Put coarsely chopped chocolate into the Simsafix, put on the mixing bowl lid without the measuring cup and heat for 30-40 minutes / 90° / level 1, depending on the amount.
  3. Remove Simsafix with the Thermomix spatula and process the chocolate as desired.

With the August lip on the Simsafix, precise dosing of liquid chocolate for decorating pastries and desserts is child's play.
Simsafix is ​​cleaned in the dishwasher and the mixing bowl is emptied and wiped clean with a towel - done!

2) Simsafix as a cake baking pan

So far, steam-cooked cakes have only been known from Varoma.
The cake pan used must be the perfect size to qualify as a suitable Varoma cake pan.
With Simsafix you always have the perfect cake pan at hand and the Varoma is not even needed during cooking.

Cheesecakes, lava cakes or classic sponge cakes are best.
With our recipe you can cook a juicy sponge cake:

That's how it's done:

  1. Put 2 eggs, 60g butter, 1 tbsp milk, 60g sugar, 1 pinch of salt, 100g flour and 2 tsp baking powder into the mixing bowl and mix on speed 4 for 1 minute.
  2. Refine the dough with flavors, fruits, chocolate drops or cocoa as desired and fold in with a spatula.
  3. Grease Simsafix, pour in the dough and smooth it out. Pour 1 liter of water into the mixing bowl.
  4. Cover Simsafix with cling film, stretch a kitchen rubber band around Simsafix to secure it and place it in the mixing bowl.
  5. Insert the mixing bowl lid and measuring cup and cook for 60 minutes / Varoma / level 1. After the time has elapsed, remove Simsafix with the Thermomix spatula.
  6. Turn the cooled cake out and decorate with icing as desired.

3) Clean thing! Soap from Simsafix

Glycerin soap or pouring soap can be melted cleanly and safely with Simsafix.
Melting directly in the mixing bowl is possible, but requires a lot of cleaning.

That's how it's done:

  1. Pour 1000g water into the mixing bowl, insert Simsafix and add pouring soap in pieces.
  2. Put on the mixing bowl lid without the measuring cup and cook for 10-20 minutes / Varoma / level 1.
  3. Add any dyes, fragrance oils or flowers to the liquid soap and mix.
  4. Remove Simsafix with the Thermomix spatula, pour soap into molds and allow to cool.

4) Water candles with Simsafix

It is better not to melt candle wax directly in the mixing bowl.
The subsequent cleaning is extremely time-consuming and laborious, while Simsafix is ​​simply cleaned in the dishwasher.
This means that leftover wax can easily be poured into new candles.

That's how it's done:

  1. Pour 1000g water into the mixing bowl, insert Simsafix and add remaining wax in pieces.
  2. Put on the mixing bowl lid without the measuring cup and cook for 10-20 minutes / Varoma / level 1.
  3. Add any dyes or fragrance oils to the liquid wax and mix.
  4. Place the wick in the prepared mold and pour in the wax.

5) How do I prevent condensation from dripping into the Simsafix?

When cooking with Simsafix, condensation forms and collects on the underside of the lid.
To prevent the liquid from dripping into the Simsafix and watering down the contents, we fold a strip of aluminum foil, stick it through the outside of the Simsafix into the pot and guide it through the opening in the mixing bowl lid.
This way the condensation flows along the aluminum strip back into the mixing bowl and your Simsafix product is not watered down.
