Magimix was the original pioneer of the food processor 42 years ago in Burgundy France. By French catering company salesman, Pierre Verdan, he observed the vast amount of time his clients spent in the kitchen chopping, shredding and mixing. He felt there must be an easier way and he produced a simple but effective solution, a bowl with a revolving blade in the base. This first model evolved down the years to the modern version. The parts for the original R1 are still available and BBS ltd sell hundreds of bowls / blades / discs for these each year, they are still going strong and will probably last for years to come.
The modern versions are basically the same "why change something when it works". Designed to work better with the modern kitchens, with celebrity chefs, cookery schools and food writers always insisting on the Magimix food processor for reliability, quietness and robustness. (See food processor in use)
Add to that the fact that all models come with 30 year motor guarantee, and 3 years on parts (most car companies do not offer this sort of guarantee!). This gives you confidence that this very successful French company know they have a product that lasts. The bowls are made of shatterproof lexan plastic, the same material riot shields and aircraft windows.
The motors are a commercial grade induction motor, which automatically adjusts the power for the task needed. Simple no need to select speeds just controlled power all the time. There is no servicing on these motors they just go on and on. New functions available include the Blendermix feature, fitted with the main blade the blendermix inproves the blender function of you food processor by changing the direction of the liquid from a centrifugal motion to a vortex, the blendermix produces a ultra fine blend that allows you to create your own veloute soups, smoothies, pancake batters and much more.
When purchasing a food processor there is always one main question you need to ask yourself. Which Size? The whole range of food processors have been designed to be used every day and should be kept on the work surface; the space needed is almost the same for each model. The issue will be more the number of people in your family (are you planning a larger family in the next 10 years ?) or the amount of people you entertain (will you become more popular with your new quality food mixer ?). Remember the motor guarantee is 30 years!!
A rough guide is to follow is:
The compact 3200xl model is for 3 to 4 people with a 2.6 litre main bowl
The Cuisne systeme 4200xl model is for 4 to 5 people with a 3 litre main bowl.
The Cuisine systeme 5200xl model is for over 5 people with 3.6 litre main bowl.
All these food processors are designed to help you cope small jobs or with large scale entertaining so your family or guests are provided with exquisite dishes. The 5200 model is slightly larger than the 4200 model but only takes up a similar amount of space on your kitchen worktop as the 3200. all three models come with 3 bowls, a mini bowl for small amounts, a midi bowl for slicing and grating into and the main bowl for all jobs including egg whisking, dough making, soups, smoothies, purees, cake making and endless other food processing jobs.
