Converting recipes for thermal appliances and microwaves

Do you have a thermal appliance at home and want to use it for my recipes? It’s quite simple, and if you’re already experienced with thermal appliances, you can likely figure it out on your own. However, for those who need some extra guidance, this blog is here to help you.

〉Weighing – While ingredients can be weighed straight into the bowl, I prefer separate digital scales, as they are the most precise, especially for small quantities. You can pop the thermal appliance bowl on the kitchen scales and weigh in the ingredients that way.

〉Melting  – Keep the temperature between 60-70 ˚C and on low speed.

〉Mixing – I recommend low to moderate speed.

〉Blitzing and Milling – This will need to be done at the highest speed.

〉Kneading – Most thermal appliances have a special function (or attachment) that will come in handy when kneading.

〉Extra tip – Be sure to use the little cup on the lid of your thermal appliance when mixing and milling to prevent the ingredients from escaping.

What About a Microwave?

If you choose to use a microwave to melt your ingredients, keep the following in mind:

〉Keep your zapping to short 15-20 second bursts, on the lowest power setting.

〉Check the ingredients and mix (as you would when using the conventional method) each time.

〉Please, don’t stand too close!
