Surface finishing: Combining design with functionality
Vorwerk describes its Thermomix as “the unique kitchen appliance”, for which the manufacturer relies on sophisticated technology and first-class materials. PLEXIGLAS® lends the surface of the housing an elegance that endures.
Multifunctional kitchen appliances that weigh, chop, and cook within a single device are now hugely popular; the top brand Thermomix is flying off shelves all over the world. Just 10 months after the current model, the TM5, came on to the market, the millionth such appliance rolled off Vorwerk’s production line. “Many of our customers have been loyal Thermomix fans for years, because they know they can rely on our quality,” says Dr. Thorsten Gläser, head of Materials Engineering at Vorwerk. The appliance has been designed so as to perform the various functions without elaborate changeover procedures, and is also easy to clean. “For this we rely on the highest engineering skills and first-class materials,” says Gläser.
