Questions? Technical Issues? The Survival Guide / Energy use
« on: August 25, 2013, 08:17:42 am »
Did you know that even when your TM has gone to sleep(standby mode screen gone blank) it is still using electricity?  It certainly does. This might be obvious to some but not others. It is good practice to unplug after use any way but also this will save you money.
The question I have is why hasn't Vorverk put an on off control? In this day and age where we should be saving energy and the continuous comments from sales that the TM saves money from the food budget...............

The current issue of the BBC Good Food Magazine has a 'free' silicone spatular which is ideal for cleaning the TM bowl. The magazine is excellent too!

Chit Chat / Vacuum Sealing for freezing, cooking and refrigeration
« on: August 16, 2011, 09:32:56 am »
I have been an avid user of a simple vacuum sealer for many years, I have even developed a way of using a balloon pump to enable me to extract the air from standard bags prior to tape sealing them. However I have just treated myself to a 'posh' seal-a-meal machine which is excellent for standard sealing but can also be used for creating your own ready meal type boil/heat in the bag but with the advantage of home cooked food!
Does anyone else have any hints, tips or experience of this type of equipment?  Love to hear from anyone about this.

Questions? Technical Issues? The Survival Guide / adverts
« on: May 07, 2011, 02:35:13 pm »
please can I ask why there is a need to have some of the 'inappropriate' and 'suggestive' graphics in the adverts which run on the right hand side of the home page?
Is it me or do other people find them a) tasteless and b) inappropriately suggestive?
Sorry forum moderators but I really do!

I am currently an owner of a TM 3300 which I believe is an 80's model (still going very strong), does anyone have a copy of the booklets that came with this model? I have an owners manual but I rather hoping for more than this. Any help would be appreciated.

Bread / bread improver
« on: February 08, 2011, 05:43:56 pm »
I when I make bread by hand or in my breadmaker I use improver which makes the bread last for much much longer, in fact it doe not go solid like it can do if you keep homemade bread. Is anyone else using it? Any suggestions or tips for use in TM? ::

Introduce Yourself / Happy owner of a 3300
« on: February 08, 2011, 04:57:22 pm »
Just a quick message to introduce myself: My name is Tim, I am the owner of a very old 3300 which is doing sterling work until such time that I can afford the latest model.
I am really impressed by this clever piece of kit which is enhancing our kitchen and cooking. At the moment we are going through all our kitchen units deciding what we don't need and can sell on ebay so that we can afford a new TM31. So far we have quite a pile of stuff which will on longer be required.
