Explanation of terms with the Thermomix® VM and TM – what does that actually stand for?
The first Thermomix® models had the abbreviation “VM” in their name. This stands for “Vorwerk Mixer”. The "TM" in the new Thermomix® models simply stands for "Thermomix®".
TM5 vs TM6
The TM5 and the new TM6 are the most popular models today. The differences are that the TM6 can fry for the first time and you now adjust the temperature precisely in one degree increments. The TM6 also weighs even more accurately and automatically connects to your smartphone thanks to Bluetooth and Vorwerk's own app. If you want to improve your TM5 or TM6 even further, take a look at the practical accessories from Wundermix.
Which Thermomix® is the best?
A Thermomix® is only declared ready for the market if it can not only cook, but also do so perfectly for many years or even decades. All Thermomix® models and accessories are designed for maximum longevity. However, you can only enjoy new functions and technologies with the new models from Thermomix®. The TM6, for example, represents a big leap from its predecessor, the TM5. If you want to unleash the full potential of Thermomix® innovations when cooking, then the TM6 is the best device.
Which Thermomix® should I buy?
Only the Thermomix® TM6 is available to buy as a new device. But in many kitchens, the TM5 and TM31 in particular still do a great job every day. Since purchasing a Thermomix® is always a cost issue, you may decide to go for an older, used Thermomix® model from Vorwerk. However, if you invest in the new Thermomix® TM6, the new model, you can enjoy guided cooking or an easy-to-set up Bluetooth connection. It's up to you which multifunctional food processor you choose and which function is particularly important to you. The fact is that Vorwerk's innovative potential is most clearly evident in the new TM6. The model is still being constantly improved today, for example through software updates.
