From December 2003 onwards, Mälzer presented the cooking show Schmeckt nicht, gibt’s nicht on VOX, which earned him his first nominations for the German Television Award in 2004 and 2007. The show ran there weekdays until August 2007, when Mälzer switched to the station’s evening program, where he hosted the show Born to Cook until September 2007. Starting in December 2004 Mälzer also appeared frequently on the ZDF program Kochen bei Kerner, which was broadcast weekly on Friday evenings. Mälzer’s popularity as a TV chef also boosted sales of the cookbooks he wrote, Born to Cook and Born to Cook 2. In 2006 he published the magazine Neues vom Küchenbullen, of which part of the proceeds went to finance World Vision projects.[9] After a break required for burnout syndrome,[10] Mälzer performed in front of an audience in 2007 in his stage show Ham’ se noch Hack. In addition, he has been a frequent guest on the VOX show Die Kocharena since the end of 2007. From April 2009 until 2014 he presented the weekly broadcast Tim Mälzer kocht! (en: Tim Mälzer cooks!) on Das Erste.[11] From 2013 to 2015 he was coach and juror on the Sat.1 cooking talent show The Taste.

Since February 2016 he has been on air in all but three episodes of the VOX cooking duel show Kitchen Impossible, which was awarded the German Television Prize in 2017 and 2018 in the category “Best Factual Entertainment”.

Since November 2019 he has hosted the cooking competition show Ready to beef! on VOX, while friend and Michelin-starred chef Tim Raue judges the dishes.[12][13]

In October he starred in the documentary “Zum Schwarzwälder Hirsch” where he coached a team of persons with Down syndrome to open and run a restaurant. [14]
