Blend mode and Turbo mode explained
Make blending a breeze - Blend mode
Enjoy soups, smoothies, and purees with the perfect texture. Blend mode is pre-set at 30 seconds, and the speed of the mixing knife slowly increases from speed 5 to your target speed (speed 6-8) gradually and
automatically for added safety!
Read on to find some of our blending tips!
Tips for soups
Who doesn’t love the texture of a perfectly velvety soup? With Blend mode, say goodbye to lumps, vegetable fibres, and peels. Thermomix® transforms everything into a perfectly uniform and creamy texture.
There are some vegetables that have a higher water content than others (think zucchini, tomato, broccoli, and celery, among others). Take this into consideration when making soup so that it doesn’t turn out to be too watery or too thick. If you think you’ve added too much water, remove some before blending, and save it as a base for your next vegetable broth!
Tips for purees
Potato, sweet potato, carrot, broccoli, pumpkin, peas… the flavour combinations for purees are unlimited! Purees are great as a side dish or pie filling! Blend mode is also perfect for baby food: fruit puree, meat and fish soups, oatmeal, etc.
Upgrade your potato puree:
• Add colour by adding carrot, beetroot or peas to your potatoes.
• Enhance flavour by adding parmesan cheese, toasted bacon, fresh herbs, or spices.
Maximum power - Turbo mode
In Turbo mode, you’re operating the blade at maximum speed in short bursts. Pre-set pulse times of 0.5, 1 and 2 seconds helps give you the necessary control, so that you can gradually chop hard ingredients like nuts, Parmesan cheese, and chocolate into increasingly smaller pieces without turning them to mush. The selected pulse time can be repeated until the ingredient is chopped to your desired size.
You can also briefly chop citrus fruit with a splash of water
to obtain their juice without getting the bitter flavour from the white pith of the skin. A great solution for homemade lemonade!
The powerful motor and sharp blades of Thermomix® make
blending and chopping a breeze.
