    Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Accessories you need



On a hot day may need longer in the fridge. Make sure butter is chilled and water iced! Soft butter will effect the consistency of the pastry.

For Pure Icing sugar I milled Raw sugar.
