My old food processor slowly disentergrated, not surprising after 15 years, so I investigated the Amazon advertised processors, what they could or couldn't do.The Magimix 5200 seemed to do every function I could think of - and after studying most of the others decided to go ahead and make the purchase, which arrived the very next day!!
It lives up to it's expectations, and is very impressive from grating cheese, making purees,pastry, slicing veg', and making pastes from whole vegetables all within seconds.I was quite nervous when I first used it as it is noisy when chopping whole vegetables. If I had to mention a downside -it is quite heavy, but it sits beautifully on my working surface so I don't need to move it around.
It is very easy to clean and comes up as shiny as new.There is a separate juicer, and a special blade for bread, it also had an egg beater attachment.
All in all I wish I had this mixer in my kitchen years ago - an excellent machine.
