Last year, Pete grew his own wheat, and has been grinding it as and when he wanted to use some in home made bread. Grinding with a small electric burr grinder is effective but slow as one has to batch it through bit by bit. But tipping the rest into the Thermomix in one go and letting those sharp blades have free rein for just a few moments reduced the whole lot to a fine flour in no time at all.
When I made avocado ice cream recently, we threw all the ingredients into the Thermomix rather than our usual jug blender. It did a very quick job blending a large volume of avocado flesh, sugar, cream, milk, lemon juice and vanilla extract which we then churned in our ice cream machine.
We’ve also used it to finely grate parmesan and chop onions and garlic, all of which it does very quickly and chop and combine ingredients for a meatloaf, which it handled much better than the disintegrating Magimix.
We didn’t manage to test the steamer functionality; we ran out of time, though we had the machine a while so all our fault.
