Overall: Highly Recommended

The Magimix performed extremely well in almost all of our tests and comes with a generous array of accessories.  The only processor still made in France, the 4200XL supplied plenty of power and is backed by a great warranty.  We liked the convenience of its wide-mouth feed tube.  On the negative side, in addition to its high price, we found that the unit was fairly difficult to clean and had limited liquid handling capability.

Model Notes & Purchasing

Magimix is difficult to find in the U.S.  The 4200XL model in white that we tested is available from Williams  Sonoma for $349 here.  A metal finish is also available for $399.  We are not affiliated in any way with Williams Sonoma, so would appreciate it if readers who find these reviews helpful consider initiating their next purchase through one of our banners on the right of the page.  Alternatively, they may wish to consider the Magimix 5150, which is available at our affiliate Chefs Catalog.  We have not reviewed this model yet.
