If you cook fragrant curries in your Thermomix on a regular basis, you may sometimes notice your bowl retains some smell. Don’t worry, there won’t be any flavour transfer due to the non porous bowl. If there is a smell, it’s the silicone on the lid seal that is retaining it, not the bowl.
Thermomix recommends replacing your lid seal every 2 years. They are $15 and can be purchased from me, your local consultant or on the Thermomix website. To avoid the smell, it’s a good idea to air out your seal overnight, after you have cooked a fragrant meal.
I’ve just replaced my lid seal this week, after using my Thermomix many times every day for over 3 years!
