Bimby is the registered trademark name for Thermomix in Italy and Portugal. Since the Thermomix name was already registered to a different company in these two countries, the manufacturer, Vorwerk, chose to register the trademark name "Bimby,? the product's affectionate nickname used by devoted customers since its creation in 1970.
The Bimby, sold in over 60 countries, is a multipurpose cooking machine that combines the functions of 12 appliances and streamlines the cooking process to save customers time and money. This costly appliance, which sells for over $1,300, is only available through Vortex agents who use in-home product demonstrations to sell it.
