Magimix Food Processor 5200XL Satin 18534
The ultimate multifunction food processor.
A Comprehensive Solution
Magimix food processors are designed to make life simpler for the serious cook and combine good looks with ease of use. The ultimate workhorse for people who regularly entertain. If you slice or grate large portions, batch bake or cook for your deep freeze, the 5200XL gives you all the flexibility you need. With Magimix the most demanding tasks can be accomplished quickly, easily and quietly.
Blade and accessory box provides compact and safe storage for the main blade, whisk and discs.
This robust machine has an ultra-quiet, commercial-grade induction motor and automatically adjusts, varying the power for each task: slice, grate, chop, whisk, blend and bake. Each polycarbonate bowl functions independently, allowing you to carry out several tasks in succession.
Offers maximum functionality in one machine, with three food processors in one (bowls are placed inside main bowl): mini bowl (1.2 L) for processing small quantities, midi bowl (2.6 L) for grating and slicing, and main bowl (3.7 L) for handling maximum quantities, with extra-large feed tube for even more convenience when slicing and shredding. The bowls are made of ultra-strong polycarbonate, while blades are made from Sabatier stainless steel. The 5200XL comes with a host of accessories.
Pastry 1.7 kg, bread dough 1.3 kg, brioche 1.1 kg, blending 1.8 L, chopping (meat) 1.4 kg, grating (carrots) 1.4 kg, egg whites x 8

Magimix do everything in one package and quickly with no fiddly or time consuming attachments to worry about that invalidate the whole point of using a food processer in the first place. SPEED OF USE. Why anyone would take a minute of two to burrow through cupboards and assemble fiddly attachments when that time could be spent chopping a single onion on a board is beyond me (unless you are arthritic or for some other good reason). These attachments come in a box.
They also cope with cake and bread preparation every bit as well as a kitchen machine does - although I do think some hand kneading is required after bread dough is removed from the bowl to get good results because the MM tends to gather and glue the mix together rather than knead it properly to activate the glutin. Think of the calories you'll burn doing the rest by hand.
The egg white and cream whisking blades aare perfectly fine with enough air incorporated to be fit for purpose. It may take a tad longer than a kitchen machine would though.
The smallest bowl is ideal for making mayonnaise, particularly if you use the non-standard oil drip feed tub pusher instead of dripping it from a jug into the open feed tube, which can take the best part of 10-15 minutes, and this can be tiring on the arms. Fast addition of oil just makes mayo go too runny and greasy tasting. So it's a slow job greatly assisted by this little gadget.
The larger XL feed tube is ideal for dropping whole veg, like pototoes, provided that you feel it is essential to use whole sliced spuds instead of pre-halved tube fed sliced potatoes, which is more than adequate for potato dishes requiring sliced potatoes, I find.Read more ›
This is my only complaint. It's brilliant otherwise- strong, quiet (compared to other food processors but not compared to say, the cat), good accessories, easy to clean, capacity (it's huge-no need for batches of soup), quality durable materials.
Perhaps this model wouldn't be ideal if you were always going to live with a small kitchen but ideal if you could keep it on the bench top. I wouldn't recommend a smaller model if you can avoid it.
It is however taller than its predecessor, and only just fits under the wall cupboards on my worktop. Another half-inch and it would have been difficult to fit in. The new wider feed slot (not shown in the photo) is brilliant for slicing things like cabbage for coleslaw or potatoes for scalloped potatoes. However, this makes the handle of the lid bulky to remove, and difficult to do single handed.
This model also has a better selection of accessories - the previous model had several which cluttered up my drawers and were never used. One of these is a parmesan grating disk which is brilliant. Another is a gadget which sits inside the bowl for processing things like soup - it pushes the liquid back down into the bowl and makes it much more efficient. It's a shame, though that the new accessories box, although better designed than its predecessor, only has room to hold three of the four disks supplied.
If you want a really hard-working, reliable, durable professional quality food processor which copes with large quantities of mixture, this is the one to go for. It's really worth the high cost.
In hindsight I would have been better spending my money on a new Kenwood Major, their shredding and citrus attatchments which would not have been much more costly and are a lot more efficient + have the option of later purchasing more attatchments. The Magimix Citrus Press is not as efficient and more difficult to fit than the Kenwood one. The slicer shredder unit for the Kenwood is less wasteful and when processing large amounts like when making coleslaw or preparing vegetables for preserving does not need continually emptying as the Magimix does as it has a continual exit for the shredded/grated food.
Cleaning of the unit is not as easy either as it has right angles and narrow crevices that are difficult to get 100% clean. Also if put on the top shelf of the dishwasher the base as a 1" lip which needs to be manually emptied as soon as the programme is ended as it not only collects water but debris as well.
As far as chopping nuts I find it useless, chopping onions with the main blades either very uneven or a pulp if left to get rid of the large pieces amongst the finer slices and not worth trying to blend soup etc as unless a very, very small amount leaks. It goes under the blades, upwards and then down the gap around the motorised 'pin' and out under the bowl then over the machine base .....Read more ›
