Desserts or timbales for 10 people  -  wonderful!  Thanks Thermomixer.  Was looking at the small metal moulds in a home shop the other day but I think I would prefer ceramic to metal.  Have never seen plastic ones.

They were put out by Nestle years ago - not sure if they are still available - that's why I'd love Vorwerk to do something in this line - maybe with the tray so the moulds would fit in and be able to be held securely and not topple over.

I bought some of these a few weeks ago, especially for making panna cottas.  Haven't used them as yet, but I think they will be great.  Only small (1/2 cup) but enough.

These must be the same moulds that Thermomixer was referring to JulieO - did you buy yours online?

Thanks JulieO - I have had them for a while and they seemed indestructible - until a few weeks ago when one just split in half while I was drying it !!  :o :o

So now I know that they can be replaced.  :-* :-*

Yes I bought  8  from this website, postage was minimal too.  Arrived about 3 days later, very good service. Also got a black apron which was only about $10 and was just what I wanted.  :)

Don't we all love accessories! It would be great if  all the accessories could be purchased online such as the brush, thermomat,  molds, spatula, aprons , carry bag etc. Or as optional extras when you purchase your first Thermomix. I say first because we all will want a new one when it comes out.  Don't ya love it? Not only what are you cooking but where will we go next.

For those who go camping maybe a stand and backpack to carry it not to mention the transducer for the car battery.

The ideas are endless. Keep 'em coming!

I give my customers a bowl brush as a gift from me when they purchase their machine (they are sooo expensive lol  :-)) :-)))  I would probably never bothered to buy it myself except that I became a consultant  ;D Primarily I do it as I have found it to be handy since I have had mine.  ;)

I cheat a little.  I use a brush from Ikea ($2.95) for my bowl and I've found that a 1/2 rubber spatula I bought from Kitchen Warehouse is the perfect thing for getting food out of the bowl. (about $2) I have a green one for savoury things and a blue one for sweet things. No garlic flavoured sweets that way.

Good to see Faffa. I also give one out with new machines, when they first came out I brought a box of them - which has been quiet handy to have.

I love the idea of bowls and what have you to fit the varoma.  Also the CD.

My 2 improvements I'd like to see on the next model are

1.  Able to weigh in 1g increments up to the first 10g.

2.  Higher heat settings available so possible to caramelize onions properly, make hard candy, etc.

The other, pie in the sky one that I'd like, is a bread machine type function included.  I make my bread the normal way with the tmx the majority of the time, so it wasn't worth holding on to my bread machine, and I sold it.  But sometimes it would be handy to still have around, even if the bread doesn't taste quite so good, and recipes are a bit more temperamental.  Just imagine if the thermomix could do it for me!!!
As my picture shows, I've suddenly become younger :-)  DD was of the opinion that her picture should be here, not mine!

Ha ha ha - now how do I get that little rolling around laughing emoticon?

The beeping - yes, a little annoying, but gets you back to the machine pretty quick and would prevent overcooking the hot stuff I suspect -  ;D I think we all take for granted that we are able to go away and leave the machine cooking while we do other things! ;D
A clear lid would be pretty good.
