Magimix 3200XL Food Processor Review

First impression

The Magimix 3200XL appears larger in person than I expected it to be. With that said, it doesn’t overwhelm my counterspace. In fact, for how large the main bowl is, it has a very small counter footprint, which I appreciate since I have a small kitchen.

Switching out the blades and discs is quite easy. That was a big worry of mine—difficult blade switching—but I’m glad to report my fears were unfounded. Likewise, toggling between the different bowl sizes is also very simple and really saves time when you’re making complex recipes.

The whisk feature is extremely useful. I love how easily it turns out a perfect meringue. This has always been challenging for me, even though I’ve been baking for many years. I have to say, it saves a lot of frustration for me when I’m trying to turn out some yummy desserts for the family.

The three-button operation is, perhaps, one of the most likeable features on the Magimix 3200XL. Programming it to do what you want is literally the press of a button—it doesn’t get simpler than that. And I love the auto feature. It smartly tailors itself to the needs of my ingredients, further saving me time in the mixing process.

The build of the Magimix 3200XL is beautiful. It feels like a high-quality appliance and the stainless-steel Sabatier blades are stunning.

Features:

3 bowls – The 3-bowl design is a big part of what makes the Magimix 3200XL Food Processor such a timesaver in the kitchen, because the 3 bowls and their accessories enable you to accomplish many tasks with one easy-to-use appliance. The main bowl is large and designed for any large-scale food prep applications; the midi bowl is optimized for grating and slicing, while the mini bowl is perfect for things like mincing garlic and scallions.

Easy operation – The Magimix 3200XL has only 3 buttons: stop, auto, and pulse. These 3 easy-to-read buttons are all you need to accomplish any food prep task with the 3200XL from Magimix. The auto setting is particularly useful, because it can detect what is in the bowl and automatically adjust to the optimized setting.

Blendermix – Blendermix is a special Magimix feature that fans of soups and sauces will love. A lot of mixers out there can make soup, but the texture is often less than desirable. That’s why Blendermix is such an important feature on the Magimix 3200XL: It creates lush soups and velvety sauces, designed with creating a pleasing texture in mind.

Dough blade – Mixing dough to the right consistency can be a bit tricky; the Magimix 3200XL simplifies this with the dough blade. The dough blade works in the main bowl, so even large-scale dough prep is a piece of cake. This is perfect around the holidays when you tend to be doing a lot of baking in large quantities.

Easy to maintain – Cleaning out a food processor isn’t anyone’s idea of fun, but Magimix does make it easier by including a special cleaning spatula with purchase. Additionally, the Magimix 3200 XL comes with its own storage box, so all of your blades and accessories can be tucked neatly away and stored all in one, easy to find place.
