New to Cookidoo® world or don´t have an account yet?
Then it’s high time we get started!
Cookidoo® is Vorwerk’s official digital portal with a database of recipes that is constantly growing. The portal works with the Thermomix® TM5 and TM6 and allows you to use the Guided Cooking function on the device.
If you already have an account for the TM5, you do not need to create a new one for Cookidoo®. All the features (recipe lists, bookmarks, subscriptions, etc.) will still be valid. Once your device is connected to Cookidoo®, you will receive a 6 month free trial subscription that you can view in your account.
How to create a Cookidoo account:
Go to your local Cookidoo website and click on the ‘Sign up’ button. Enter an email address (make sure you have access to this inbox) and create a password for your account. It is not possible to use your existing credentials from other Vorwerk websites for Cookidoo®. For the best user experience, we suggest using an alternative browser to Internet Explorer.
Please note: you must create your account through the Cookidoo® website or the mobile app. It cannot be created through the TM6 itself.
Please ensure you have a Cookidoo® account before one of our advisors visits you to instruct you on how to use your TM6 device. If another person logs in with their credentials on your TM6 first, they will receive the 6month free trial instead of you.
Good to Know: Once you are a member of the Cookidoo® family, you can connect up to 5 different devices (TM5 with Cook-Key® or TM6) to one Cookidoo® account.
New to Thermomix® and the TM6?
No worries, getting started is easy. Simply plug in the TM6, switch it on and follow the instructions on the display. You can add and edit information in the settings afterwards. Please note: your Thermomix® may display a software update prompt the first time you switch it on. If it does not, go to “Settings”, select “Thermomix® version & update” and search for the latest software version. If an update is available, download and install it. Once the update is completed, the Thermomix® may perform a reboot. This can take more than 30 minutes. So, don’t worry too much… just have a little patience.

Connectivity useful tips.
Cookidoo® won’t connect even though you have a strong WLAN connection?
Don’t worry. There are several ways to resolve this.
Step 1: spell check.
Check that you are using the right login credentials for your Cookidoo® account and make sure you haven’t misspelled the password (enable “Show password” when typing).
Step 2: different country?
Check your settings and make sure the country selected on your TM6 is the same as in your Cookidoo® account.
Step 3: Check your signal.
Your home WLAN might not be strong enough or you may not be connected to the internet. Try bringing the TM6 closer to your router or connect your TM6 via a hotspot, (e.g. a smartphone) to see if the problem persists. In some cases, you may need to install a WLAN repeater in your kitchen to ensure a stable signal.
Tried to log in to your device, but the login button is grayed out?
This may occur if you installed a new TM6 software version. In this case, you will need to perform a factory reset. Go to “Settings” and click on “Factory reset”. The device will reboot. Once it is ready, you will need to follow the instructions again and connect your device via WLAN.
Want to disconnect your Cookidoo® account from your TM6?

Alternatively, you can log in to your Cookidoo® account on the Cookidoo® website and deactivate your TM6 in the “My devices” section. Once this is done, you can connect any other Cookidoo® account to your TM6. Make sure your TM6 is connected to Cookidoo®.
