Magimix 5200XL

A couple of weeks ago, I received a Magimix food processor in the mail to review. I’ve been using it regularly over the course of the past two weeks, and I’m happy to report that I’ve kicked my old, chipped food processor to the curb. Okay, well maybe just to the garage – to take on camping trips or something!

Just the name “Magimix” conjures up warm fuzzy memories from me, as that is always what the great Julia Child referred to the food processor in her kitchen as. That’s because they’re the O.G. – made in France by hand, where they manufacture their own motors as well. A company dedicated to quality so much that they don’t trust anyone else to the job! They’re awesome. So awesome in fact, that they’re sponsoring the giveaway of a Magimix 5200XL 16-Cup Food Processor here at Tide & Thyme. Here are the deets on this awesome piece of kitchen equipment:

  • 6-cup, 12-cup and 16-cup mixing bowls.
  • 2 metal Sabatier blades, one for small bowl, and one for medium and large bowls.
  • Dough blade.
  • 2 grating discs; 2 mm and 4 mm.
  • 2 slicing discs; 2 mm and 4 mm.
  • Blender mix attachment.
  • Citrus Press.
  • Egg whisk.
  • Spatula.
  • Recipe book and DVD.
  • Storage box.

The 3-bowl system is genius. How awesome is it to be able to shred enough cabbage and carrots for egg rolls in one bowl? But then have a work bowl small enough to make chipotle aioli for fish tacos using the same machine? The protective storage box is also very handy – especially for someone like me, who has lots of little hands poking around the kitchen. Everything fits neatly into the easy to access box that I’ve put nearby on my pantry. It’s a wonderful, wonderful piece of equipment – and I’m happy to be able give one away to a lucky reader!

*The winner is Comment #99: Meryl, who will be making plenty of salsa and olive tapenade in her new food processor. Congrats, Meryl!
