Magimix 5200XL Food Processor Reviews Details

Firstly, you will know you are buying quality because the food processor is heavy and has a very sturdy build. In fact, this feature can also have a downside because some users may struggle to move it around the kitchen because of its hefty weight.

However, every single thing about the Magimix CS 5200 XL feels like it has been built to last, including its many accessories. Every detail has been carefully thought about, especially the strength and durability of the accessory connectors, which in cheaper models tend to be the first thing to break after a period of use.

The main food processing bowl is sturdy and very weighty and fits into place with a satisfying clunk. Every accessory and tool seem to fit together exactly as they should.

This food processor comes with a wide selection of useful accessories. Included are three sizes of a bowl, offering 3.6-, 2.6- and 1.1-litre options. This means you can choose the bowl to fit the quantity of food you need to prepare.

Other Benefits

There are two blades to fit the different sized bowls, and it even comes with a dough blade which is useful for making bread dough and for folding ingredients together that need more gentle attention than blending blades.

It comes with 2mm and 4mm slicing discs, a grating blade that can give you a fine or normal grate size, an egg whisk, citrus press, and a ‘blendermix’ which is ideal for making smoothies and pureeing smooth, lump-free soups.

Other accessories that are included are a 6mm slicing disc, julienne disc, a masher and puree kit, and a dough bowl. With so many optional accessories to choose from you should be completely covered for your food processing needs.

Attractive enough to live on your counter-top?

Depending on how house-proud you are, or how minimalist you like your kitchen to be, you may or may not want to leave the Magimix CS 5200 XL on permanent display in your kitchen.

While the overall design is fairly attractive and minimal, it is a bit chunky looking. However, it’s clean lines and light gloss finish does add to its attractiveness, so if you want it to have a permanent space in your kitchen, it won’t be an eye-sore.

For those who want to tuck the Magimix CS 5200 XL away in a kitchen cupboard and pull it out when needed, its weight can go against this and the prospect of heaving it out of a cupboard each time you need it may be quite off-putting.

Ease of use

The processor has an auto-speed setting only, which means you can’t control the speed yourself. While it can be hard to adapt to if you previously owned a processor with varying speed control, it doesn’t really cause any problems and you do get used to it.

The overall verdict from the majority of users is that while it’s an expensive kitchen tool it is well made and comes with enough accessories to let it excel at all tasks.
