Interrupting cooking to use scales
If you need to weigh in an ingredient during cooking, pause the cooking byturning the speed dial off then press the weighing scales button and weigh in your ingredient(s). Finally, turn the speed dial back to the desired speed and your Thermomix willresume cooking, remembering both the temperature and the remaining time.
Removing Bread Dough
For removal of bread dough, tip Thermomix Bowl upside down and the dough will drop out. If dough is too wet it will be stuck inside the bowl. The touch test is best carried out 10 seconds into the kneading process . On the rest interval, through hole in the lid, touch the dough with two fingers, if fingers are clean dough will be easier to handle, if dough is sticky and sticks to fingers, add 1 heaped dessertspoon of bakers flour through top of lid. This will facilitate easier removal from the Thermomix bowl and will be clean and easy to work with (you won’t need to add flour to dough when shaping). It’s also worth checking again after about 1 min 30 sec after the bread starts to relax.
You can also spin the blade attachment on the bottom side of the bowl ( the black bit) to help move the dough out.

Cooking Safety Feature – TTS (time temperature speed)
Set timer, temperature, speed. Never burn the house down! Remember NO TIMER then NO HEAT!!!!
Get into the habit of leaving the MC out of the jug whilst not in use, this will aid the drying and airing of the bowl. I generally leave it sitting on top of the lid, just not in the hole in the lid. Please note the double locking feature that is engaged with a beep when the lid is moved across into the closed position. Whilst not in use I encourage you to leave the lid ajarso the blades won’t engage.
Once the butterfly is inserted you MUST NOT go over speed 4 – otherwise the butterfly may come off and get damaged in the bowl. When using the butterfly the MC may also be placed if desired however the spatula should not be placed through the hole whilst butterfly in use.
