The Ultimate Kitchen Assistant: Magimix Food Processor

Janet Hall May 06, 2013

Robot-Coupe invented and perfected the commercial food processor in France over forty years ago, and with its Magimix line, designed for home use, the company continues to lead the pack (this might be the first and last food processor you will buy).

Above: With the Magimix line, Robot Coupe has stuck to its simple design featuring just three operating buttons. Available in 12-, 14-, and 16-cup sizes, the Magimix 14-Cup Food Processor (4200) is $349.95 in white and $399.95 in chrome at Williams-Sonoma. The large Magimix 16-Cup Food Processor (5200) and the smaller Magimix 12-Cup Food Processor (3200) start at $499.95 and $299.95 respectively.

Above: The Magimix Food Processor comes with an extensive collection of accessories, including two Sabatier stainless-steel blades (strong enough for a variety of tasks, including crushing ice), two slicing discs, two grating discs, a blender mixer, and a citrus press. It also comes with a trio of work bowls. 

Above: Been coveting a juicer?  The Magimix Food Processor Juice Extractor and Smoothie attachment fits the 14- and 16-cup models; $79.95 at Williams Sonoma.

Above: Robot Coupe commercial food processors are available for retail purchase. The design is not as counter-friendly as the Magimix, and it may be more power and expense than the home cook needs. The Robot Coupe Professional Food Processor R2N is $956.12 through Amazon.
