Magimix 5200XL Food Processor Review

First impression

The Magimix 5200XL takes up a lot more counterspace than its smaller cousins. This likely won’t be an issue for most people, but it is noticeable in my small kitchen. That said, I can still see myself using it when I’m baking for parties. We have a Christmas party every year at my house, and getting out the 5200XL would be perfect for that.

I used the whisking feature to make my first soufflé. I’d never made one before, but using the recipes and trusting in the Magimix 5200XL got me through it. I could see this being a great tool for beginning cooks to spread their wings and learn to create newer, more complicated dishes.

Features

Easy to use – The Magimix 5200XL is incredibly easy to operate. Simply use the three buttons (stop, auto and pulse) to control the mixer and get the result you’re looking for. Recipes are included with the mixer and also on the Magimix app to help you find the perfect ways to utilize this straightforward yet versatile machine.

Timesaver – The Magimix 5200XL comes with three bowls. When combined with its three buttons, you have everything you need for a comprehensive mixing machine, capable of chopping, whisking, mincing, and everything in between. The main bowl turns out perfect bread dough, the midi bowl is ideal for making homemade mayonnaise, and the mini bowl is all you need when finely mincing ginger. The large feed tube also works to save you time, by cutting down on the pre-chopping that’s required.

Juicer kit – The Magimix 5200XL Food Processor features a juicer kid, complete with a citrus press. This enables to make your favorite citrus-based juices and smoothies right in your Magimix 5200XL, all without the need for additional appliances.

Whisk – Whisking in general can be a challenge to new bakers, and meringues can be particularly brutal to master. The Magimix 5200XL’s whisk feature not only whisks mousse and soufflés into shape, it also turns out the perfect meringue on its own—perhaps its greatest accomplishment, where beginning bakers are concerned.
