One Girl and her Thermie
Yes, it looks like a toilet brush but don't let that put you off. This brush especially designed by a German company (not Vorwerk) gets your Thermomix sparkly clean and saves at least 5 minutes cleaning the bowl. The advantage of this brush is that it is straight and reaches the inaccessible areas of the TM bowl without having to take it apart. Even better this brush can also be cleaned in the dishwasher.
To use, leave blade in, fill the bowl with hot soapy water and use brush to clean in circular motion.
