ThermoBrush is the worlds only company manufacturing a brush designed specifically to clean the Thermomix® blades. Founded in December 2016 by the inventor/CEO Mrs Jade Kuhn. ThermoBrush is operated solely by Jade, from a rural town in South Australia. ThermoBrush has been the recipient of numerous awards for product innovation/design.
After purchasing a Thermomix® in 2014, I soon discovered that the blade system was not that easy to clean. After much research, I saw a gap in the market, and an opportunity for a specifically designed brush to clean the blades. I discovered that most people were using disposable mascara brushes! 90% of those brushes being used only once and then ending up in landfill. This was not good on the environment, and was still time consuming to clean the blade. There was a need for a more hygienic, and reusable brush.
My vision for the ThermoBrush was very clear from the start. I wanted a brush that was easy to use, and that gave the gap in the blade a superior clean. The brush was designed to mould around the base of the blade, making it an easy, one-motion cleaning step. The food grade rubber over mould was chosen over bristles, as it is more hygienic and has less flicking mess when cleaning the food. My first prototype was made from my children's craft box, and it is the same design and shape of the ThermoBrush today! But with a lot less sticky tape!
The brush needed to be food grade, and of high quality. I recognised the importance of supporting the local manufacturing industry, an industry which has been in decline over recent years. I work closely with our South Australian manufacturer, to produce a superior product. Cresta Plastics is now able to grow their business alongside ours, and their commitment to scale production capacity as we grow is outstanding. Supporting locals is a huge passion.
