      If you are using a Thermomix® TM6 measuring cup with your Thermomix® TM5:
      For cooking (simmering) at temperatures of 95°C or above (200°F), the simmering basket should always be used instead of the TM6 measuring cup, as the TM6 measuring cup fits tightly in the lid. The simmering basket rests loosely on top, is steam-permeable, and also prevents food spatter from the mixing bowl.

Recipe's preparation

  1. Place Parmesan (optional) into mixing bowl and grate 10 sec/speed 9. Set aside. Rinse and dry mixing bowl.
  2. Insert butterfly whisk. Place potatoes, salt and milk into mixing bowl and cook 25 min/95°C/speed 1, placing simmering basket instead of measuring cup onto mixing bowl lid.
  3. Add butter, nutmeg (optional) and reserved grated Parmesan (optional) insert measuring cup and mash 30 sec/speed 3. Serve hot.

Transfer mashed potato into ThermoSever to rest and thicken slightly before serving.

The best mashed pototoes are achieved using floury potatoes (e.g. Red Pontiac, Royal Blue).

Depending on the variety of potatoes used, it may be necessary to extend cooking time by 5 minutes.
