Magimix 4200XL Food Processor Review

First impression

It’s noticeable right away that the Magimix 4200XL is a step bigger than the 3200XL; depending on your needs, this may be worth taking up the extra counter space for you.

This unit comes with a juicer kit; I’ve never juiced before, but it’s pretty easy to use and the addition of the citrus press was a nice touch.

The dough blade really works its magic in the large bowl; it’s perfect for making scones or anything with a thick batter, really. Blendermix makes sauces creamy and delicious when mixing in the midi bowl; I can see myself making a lot of soups and sauces in my food processor from now on, because it really does simplify the process—I’ve always been a traditionalist before.

Features

3-in-1 mixer                                                                                                                                   

The Magimix 4200XL Food Processor comes with a main bowl, like any standard mixer, along with two smaller bowls (midi and mini) for finer applications such as making sauces, salad dressing, or mincing herbs. The main bowl is a large 3L (perfect for things like cake batter), the midi bowl is 2.6L, and the mini bowl is 1.2L.

Quiet

Everyone knows mixers are loud, but the Magimix 4200 Food Processor is designed to be a quieter mixer. Its relative silence is thanks to its quality induction motor, which takes away some of the loud noise associated with standard mixers.

Recipes

Like all Magimix processors, the 4200XL comes with its own recipe book to give you a running start on everything you need to know about using the mixer to cook and bake. Likewise, it’s also compatible with the Magimix App. Simply input your Magimix 4200XL into the app UI and it will load compatible recipes for you right on your smartphone.

Easy to use and maintain

Operating the Maigmix 4200XL is as simple as mastering its 3 buttons. Meanwhile, Magimix has included a cleaning spatula with purchase to help with cleanup. An included storage box neatly houses all of your Magimix accessories.

Quality construction

Made in France with stainless steel Sabatier blades, the Magimix 4200XL is designed to slice and dice away for years to come. Stainless steel blades never rust, furthering the ease of maintenance.
