I would highly recommend the Magimix ice cream maker with built in compressor though -- REALLY impressive. Just put in a tub of nice fruit yoghurt whilst having dinner and 40 minutes later you have the most wonderful ice cream ....

I have the Magimix 5200 XL. I really rate it. My blender died last week so I used the Magi to blend the soup and I was really happy with the results.

Magimix is just amazing. I bought the 4200. It’s not only one of the best baby food processors, but I also use if for our own meals whenever I cook for the family. It’s been with me for quite sometime now and there are no complaints from my end.

Thansk everyone.
I've ordered a 4200xl.
I'll let you know what I think once I've had a play. smile

Its a Robocop all the way, all other food processors/mixers are toys but you do pay for the quality.

I have the 5200 XL if that helps.

I have the Magimix. It is good if you do lots of baking, i.e. large quantities of butter icing etc. - no problem, it is very powerful.

I do find it a drawback that you cannot change its speed. Sometimes I would like to start at a low speed and then turn it up, that is not possible.

Also, I find that for bread dough it is not that brilliant. Same for pasta dough.

Also, with its accessories, it will take up quite a lot of space.

I am happy to have it though, just not sure I would buy it again.

Thank you both.
It's the 4200 I was looking at.
Looks like the Magimix is edging it. grin

I have a magimix 3200. I LOVE it! smile
Mind I've never had another food processor to compare it with.

We have the magimix (4200?). Really pleased with it. I'm not mega adventurous when it comes to cooking but it easily does the job in terms of chopping, grating, pastry/dough etc. Also has a blender mix attachment which is handy for soup & baby food.

Sorry, boring and I know it's been done before, but my food processor of circa 20 years duration has died a death, so I need another.
Thinking either the Magimix or Cuisinart, both about £250-270. Both look similar, with similar reviews.
Any comments anyone?
Thanks
