Do you need a Thermomix blade cover?
Thermomix® Slow Cook and Sous-vide modes introduce longer cooking times. The blade cover is used to protect softer ingredients, or sous-vide bags, from coming into contact with the moving blades of the mixing knife.
How do you slow cook in a Thermomix?
When using the slow cook mode, your TM6 blades will turn slowly for the first 30 minutes and then switch to alternating for 1 minute on and 1 minute off. If you stop the mode halfway through, your Thermomix will reset and begin the 30 minutes of stirring again.

Can I use simmering basket instead of blade cover?
(As the simmering basket and the blade cover may both be used for Sous-vide, use EITHER the simmering basket OR the blade cover attachment, but NEVER together.)
