Summary: What a beast of a machine. Brilliant though! I am still treading my way gently through all the functionality of this powerful machine. It was quite daunting when I took it out of the box and assembled it. I have never ever used a food processor and feel I am starting at the top end of the spectrum. Chopping, grating, blending, slicing have all gone very well so far. The chickpea and a shortbread recipe went really well.
Summary: I was really excited to receive this as a birthday present last May and was initially really impressed with it. However this was followed by disappointment when the handle cracked but it was quickly replaced by magemix.
Summary: Have always had a Kenwood processor with blender attachment but required a new one. On reading various reviews decided on Magimix 4200. While the machine is robust and powerful I find it does not chop vegetables evenly - have to keep stopping machine to distribute vegetables better and when blending soup, it does not blend smoothly enough. I have not used all the functions yet, which may be very good but so far not sold on this machine.
Summary: I have had my Magimix since September 2013 and I discovered this evening that the plastic handle has cracked AGAIN! It has never been in the dishwasher - always washed carefully by hand and has not been used excessively. This is the THIRD bowl I have had and I think it is astounding that Magimix can provide something of such poor quality. My previous Magimix was 30 years old and only replaced because I needed a larger bowl.
Summary: I bought this a a gift for my mother who's an avid cook. She needed something that could do everything that she required, this did all that and more! My mother is over the moon at it's performance and it's quality this is a great buy for anyone looking for an advanced food processor that looks good and is reasonably priced
Summary: This food processor is so helpful in the kitchen I couldn't leave without it. It adjusts its speed according to task and it chops everything so smoothly in a matter of seconds. This is the best food processor I have ever owned.
