With regards to sharpening the blades by crushing ice. Do you need to have just ice or would having fruit smoothies with lots of ice in them each day do the same thing?

Also the  BASKET  is used as a strainor and the spatular clips in to the side of the baskets making the handle of the strainor, very easy when draining/straining- juices/pasta/ect....

I'd like one for each day to suit my mood. Red springs to mind. Actually I like black, it suits everything and is smart. BUt I'd still like a red one!

Any pastel colour but not military yuk grey/brown. It just does not go with 'food' products, looking in the high street you don't see any other food equipment in this colour.

It's to do with the safety of it when heated I do believe. I will have to go back and do some research through my notes, but something to do with BPA's, heat and the strength of the plastic  ??? As I said I need to go and find the info to be sure I am on the right track ...

I love my TM and really don't give too much about the colour as it is. If I had a second preference though, for neutrality I would go for charcoal, then a cherry red (ha ha is that neutral????)

think this must be true as my hubby works for a famous plastics company and all of their cooking matyerial for the oven is the same colour..i dont get greenish brown but a dark grey, charcoal colour..apparently its the material used that makes it that colour (asked hubby) but new colours are coming apparently for the material not Thermomix lol

also i put mine in the dishwasher and its fine..only thing i have noticed is the lid tends to dry out ie the colour seems to fade a bit but i just rub a bit of oil over it like you do with certain pans and cookware and its fine...and any case like nay nay mentioned they cant void the warranty as its mentioned its dishwasher safe..have to note though that only the newer versions I know that older TM31's are not dishwasher safe..you can tell by the blade apparently..its slightly different to the new one??

mmmmm sorry as a technologist with lots of experience of materials I cannot believe the co our is related to strength and temperature otherwise there would be a lot more nasty colored kitchen items!

I noticed that in the start of this thread is mentions drying with a tea towel in the bowl on reverse speed. Has any one heard that the powers that be are no longer recommending this, that some thread of towel are getting where they shouldn't??
My consultant mentioned this last week and I thought it was interesting. How many people have shredded a towel??? Forgot to put it in reverse LOL!!!
