Magimix by Robot-Coupe 12-Cup Food Processor Review...








I was beyond excited when Magimix recently sent me their Magimix by Robot-Coupe Compact 3200 XL 12 Cup Food Processor and Juice Extractor and Smoothie Attachment to review. 



Robot-Coupe is the French company that developed the very first food processor. They've applied the technology of their commercial models to this high-performance processor for home use. This versatile machine includes many components and accessories for a wide variety of uses.

Magimix by Robot-Coupe Food Processor's are fully manufactured and handmade in Burgandy, France and are guaranteed for 30 years!

- REVIEW -

If you love to cook or are just looking to make life easier in the kitchen while prepping and preparing meals then you have to check out Magimix's line of Food Processors. They have several different sizes --  the 3200 XL 12 Cup (like I received), the 4200 XL 14 Cup and their biggest 5200 XL 16 Cup Food Processor. 

As soon as the our new food processor arrived I couldn't wait to try it out. It came with so many attachments...


12 Cup Food Processor includes:

6-cup, 10-cup and 12-cup mixing bowls.

2 metal Sabatier blades, one for small bowl, and one for medium and large bowls.


Dough blade.


2 grating discs.


2 slicing discs.


Blender Mix attachment.


Egg whisk.


Spatula.


Recipe book and DVD.


Storage box.


When this showed up on our doorstep I didn't realize all of the things you could do with a food processor --Slice Veggies, Grate Cheese, Mince Herbs, Blend Sauces, Chop Nuts, Mix Batters, Knead Dough, Juice Fruits and so much more.


I couldn't wait to start using it and put it to good use right away. I wanted to start off with something easy just to get used to the appliance and decided to make a 'Strawberry Milkshake' out of the recipe book included with the processor. 


It was so easy to use and made the shake so creamy. I did have a little mishap and over flowed the bowl because I used the wrong size. Even with making a mess on the first try, it still turned out great. The boys loved the shake and had fun watching the machine work its magic!

Can you tell they couldn't wait to be my little taste testers...








Next I made an Au Gratin Potato recipe. You can not believe how easy it was for the processor to slice the potatoes. 



I pealed them and then put them into the processor and it sliced the potatoes into perfect, thin pieces.

The recipe turned out so good and I loved how quick and easy it sliced the potatoes. I've since sliced several veggies and within seconds you have perfect slices.

It was delicious...



Next the boys begged me to make sugar cookies. I thought could this machine really mix the thick dough? Again it did the job and did it well. You just can't imagine how quiet this food processor is and how powerful it is too. It mixed all of my batter together. I couldn't believe how well it blended all of the ingredients.



The boys' were in heaven with the finished cookies! 



Last, but not least I couldn't wait to try out the Juice Extractor and Smoothie Attachment they sent as an added bonus! 



 If you are looking to get healthier this year or just love making homemade smoothies or fresh fruit juice then you will LOVE this attachment for the processor. 



This attachment allows you to put large pieces of fruit, skin and all into it and it juices the fruit and separates the pulp, giving you fresh, all-natural juice.

I am always trying to incorporate more natural, fresh food into our diets and wasn't sure if the boys would like it. I used carrots, pineapple and strawberries the first time and they loved it. They could't even tell that the carrots were in it. 

Jace, our oldest wants me to make him fresh juice all of the time now. We've used all kinds of fruits and veggies and each time the juice extractor works great.




We have honestly used our new Magimix by Robot-Coupe Food Processor so much. It has made the work in the kitchen so much easier. From slicing whole potatoes to grating a block of cheese it is so powerful and gets the job done quickly and easily.

It's a fun product that I would highly recommend. If you love being in the kitchen and want to simplify your work then you have to check out all of the Food Processers and other products that Magimix as to offer! They are definitely top of the line in my opinion!!
