Everyone say “Use the Spatula” – HOW?
Removing the hot simmer basket from the Thermomix can be a tricky task, especially if you’re new to using this kitchen appliance. Many people suggest using the spatula for this purpose, but the process isn’t always explained clearly. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to safely and efficiently remove the hot simmer basket from your Thermomix:
1. Remove the TM Bowl Lid:
- Begin by taking off the lid of the Thermomix bowl. Set it aside, ensuring it’s in a safe place.
2. Flip Open the Simmer Basket Lid:
- Open the lid of the simmer basket, which is usually hinged on one side. This exposes the contents inside the basket.
3. Locate the Hook on Your TM Spatula:
- Grab your Thermomix spatula, and take a closer look at it. You’ll notice a small hook-like feature on one end of the spatula.
4. Insert the Hook into the Simmer Basket Hole:
- Carefully insert the hook end of the spatula into the small hole or gap in the simmer basket. Ensure that the hook is securely engaged in the hole.
5. Lift and Tip:
- Once the hook is firmly in place, gently lift the simmer basket using the spatula. The hook will help you raise the basket, allowing you to tip its contents into the bowl or onto a plate.
6. Exercise Caution:
- It’s essential to be cautious during this process as the simmer basket and its contents may still be hot, and there could be steam. Handle the basket and spatula carefully to avoid burns or accidents.
Once you’ve mastered this technique, you’ll find it much easier to remove the hot simmer basket from your Thermomix. It’s a simple yet effective method that ensures safe and efficient handling, making your cooking experience with the Thermomix even more convenient. Remember, practice makes perfect, and once you know this method, you won’t forget it!
