How do varoma and cooking insert differ?
In the cooking insert, vegetables are traditionally prepared gently. For this, water is poured into the mixing bowl and the cooking insert placed over it. Food can be prepared even more gently and in a time-saving manner in the Varoma steamer. On the official YouTube channel from Thermomix, it is recommended to use both attachments at the same time: jacket potatoes can be prepared in the cooking insert, while vegetables, fish and meat are cooked in the Varoma.
