Thermomix TM6 Measuring Cup Instructions recalled due to potential burn hazard

Nobember 2, 2022: from Healthy Canadians

This recall involves the instructions for the Thermomix TM6 measuring cup supplied with the Thermomix TM6 appliance and which can also be used with the Thermomix TM5 appliance. Thermomix is a multi-purpose kitchen appliance with functions that include weighing, mixing, chopping, milling, kneading, blending, steaming, cooking, beating, precise heating, stirring and emulsifying.

In rare cases, when the TM6 measuring cup is inserted into the Thermomix TM5 or TM6 and the cooking temperature is set to exceed 95˚C / 200˚F, excess pressure can build in the mixing bowl causing the sudden spillage of hot food; leading to increased risk of burns.‎ This risk is increased when the recommended fill level (as set out in the instructions and ‎indicated on the inside of the mixing bowl) is exceeded.‎

As of October 12, 2022, the company has received no reports of incidents in Canada. There have been 36 incidents reported to the company worldwide.

Consumers should immediately stop using the Thermomix TM6 measuring cup instructions and contact Vorverk to obtain updated product instructions. Once the updated product instructions have been reviewed, consumers may continue to use the TM6 Measuring Cup in accordance with the updated instructions. Customers do not need to return the product. C

ustomers were informed directly via email by Vorwerk. Vorwerk has initiated a Global Information Campaign to reduce risk of user error with respect to the use of the TM6 measuring cup.
