A sturdy built to last quiet little gem -- Magimix Le Mini Plus. Just don't bother with the citrus press.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Magimix Le Mini Plus Food Processor, Chrome Finish (Kitchen & Home)
If you are like me -- single, cook for one, don't have tons of kitchen space... THIS IS the one to buy! I absolutely LOVE it. It hums so quietly, yet powerfully pureeing your soups, sauces, and pesto. It's as the chef Gino D'Acampo would say "Minimum effort, maximum satisfaction". Lexan construction is ever so strong and shatterproof. One other reason I bought this product was because the main blade is Sabatier, and I own one of their excellent bread knives. I had the 2.9ltr Kenwood FP615 which was too big for me, and this little mini food processor is better designed despite being so compact. What a gem!
Seven months later, I would just like to add: the additional benefit of purchasing a Magimix product is the excellent after-sales service. I had to have my juicer attachment replaced; at the same time, they kindly prompted me to check for any other damaged parts that might need replacing. I got my replacement part(s) within five days.
Top marks for food processing capabilities but the citrus press is a very weak aspect -- don't bother. Twice, the shaft of the plastic cones bored into the centre hole of the juicing bowl after 1/2 uses. As I say, Magimix are very good in replacing damaged parts but I've now given up and bought the Chef'n Juicester Citrus Juicer / Reamer, Clear and Citrus.
