I already have TM31 cookbooks, can I still use them with the Thermomix TM6?

Yes you can prepare TM31 recipes in the TM5 and TM6. As a TM31 owner, when using a recipe marked as TM5 or TM6, you must:

1) Reduce the quantity of ingredients to ensure you don't overfill your mixing bowl past the maximum capacity 2L marking, found on the inside of your mixing bowl;

2) Reduce the quantity of ingredients in the Varoma to ensure it doesn't exceed the 2.2L capacity (ensure the Varoma lid closes securely);

3) For recipes using temperatures between 100°C and 120°C, reduce temperature to 100°C and increase cooking times accordingly.

Please note that recipes marked ONLY as TM5 or TM6 have not been tested in a TM31 (recipes marked TM6/TM5/TM31 have been tested in all appliances). 

I already have TM5 cookbooks, can I still use them with the TM6?

Yes you can prepare the TM5 recipes in the TM6. The mixing bowl and Varoma are the same size as the TM5. However, please note that not all TM5 recipes have been tested in the TM6.
