Maybe a bit over complicated, but still good.
on 24 July 2012
Bought this as a replacement for our previous 20+ year old Magimix, which suffered from a broken dough hook after long service, and on discovering replacement dough hooks for the old model no longer available. This machine is a lot more complicated than the old one, as it has three bowls of different sizes (the old one had just one). Have discovered the benefits of the small bowl though (e.g. much more effective at dealing with small quantities such as some onion and ginger for a curry base). With the old machine these would have stuck to the outside of the bowl after rough chopping and would need to scraped down several times before they were finely enough chopped. This does not happen in the small bowl of the new machine. Have not experienced the problem mentioned by others with the use of the small bowl making all the bowls dirty. Our machine seems to keep the contents of the small bowl in the small bowl, so you only need to clean that, the blade and of course the lid. I have to agree the bowls look a little more flimsy than the one on the old machine, but OK so far.
