Cooking Tech: Thermomix

Oct 08, 2018

When visiting the Culinary Institute of America for a Fellows Event, I experienced a cooking technology that impressed me.

A company called Vorwerk showcased their product, Thermomix—a hugely popular product overseas. Thermomix is an amazing piece of equipment, often found in the best restaurants in the world. I was amazed at its capabilities. So what is it exactly? It is an all-in-one kitchen appliance (for home chefs and professional chefs) that is essentially a high-tech, smart blender that can cook food at controlled temperatures with extraordinary features like a built-in digital scale. It can mince, grate, juice, blend, heat, steam, whip, mill, chop, and stir food.  Moreover, it can make ice cream, sorbet and do Sous Vide!  While I don’t impress easily, I will tell you that this is an amazing piece of equipment that can take your food to the next level.


There’s another creative feature I found to be quite handy as well. The Thermomix can load up tens of thousands of recipes from all over the world to the device via WiFi. I am certainly excited to try out this device in the Synergy Test Kitchen soon.
