A Short History of Vorwerk

The evolution from a simple blender to a high-tech accessory in the kitchen of many homes began in 1961 when the VKM5 universal food-processor by Vorwerk was introduced to the market. In 1968 Hans Gerber came up with an idea of a device that could do both mixing and heating. In 1970, thanks to Vorwerk engineers the idea was turned into reality.
The “VM” soon became the “TM” – for Thermomix – and was modernized bit by bit each year. It was Dr. Schoff, a Vorwerk engineer, who ultimately designed the TM3000, giving it built-in scales. Another new feature was that it could heat up to 100 degrees, the direct consequence of which was the steam cooking option.

Today Thermomix ® is manufactured in a Vorwerk plant in France. Our engineers continue to innovate to keep Thermomix ® at the forefront of technological advancements, while dedicated teams around the world continue to develop new recipes and write new cookbooks that are tailored to bring the very best of world cuisine to Thermomix ® users.

Since its development this revolutionary machine has taken Europe by storm and is growing in popularity across the world. Thermomix ® is now used in millions of kitchens worldwide, with at least two Thermomix ® appliances sold every minute! .
