In the US, we often generically call all food processors Cuisinarts, or at least I do, since that’s what I grew up with. Well in Europe, they have an equivalent, and it’s a Magimix. You don’t get out the food processor… you whip out the magimix.
Turns out Magimix by Robot-Coupe® is the true original, inventing the first food processor for home use in 1971. They originally licensed the product to be sold in the US as Cuisinart, before it eventually split off into its own company. So really, the original Cuisinart is a Magimix. *Mind blown*
I’ve only had my Magimix® for two weeks but so far, I’m in love. It’s by far the best food processor I’ve ever owned. This machine makes easy work of grinding up cookies for pie crust. Powers through peanut butter. And churns out pizza dough like a champ. It’s got a lot of other things going for it, too:
Easy to clean. The bowl doesn’t have any weird seals or nooks and crannies that are impossible to clean. All the removable pieces are also dishwasher safe; always a bonus.
Compact. This 12-cup size is large enough for just about anything I might want to make, and yet the compact base is much smaller and easier to store in my cabinet.
Flexible. With 3 different sized mixing bowls, you can make everything from small batches of pesto to family-sized batches of pizza dough.
Made in France. Magimix® by Robot-Coupe® is one of the only companies to manufacture their own motors and components in Burgundy, France. No Chinese-made equipment here!
Lasting. All Magimix food processors come with a 30-year motor warranty. That’s pretty incredible, considering most other kitchen appliances (or ANY appliances for that matter) are not things I expect to last even 10 years. The fact that this machine I have now should still be running strong in 30 years it’s amazing.
Accessories. In addition to the egg whisk, dough blade, and slicing and grating discs included with the Magimix, you can also find a variety of accessories to make your machine function in ways you’d never believe. I’m talking about a juicing attachment, citrus press, smoothie/puree attachment, creative slicing/grating discs (three words: FRENCH FRY DISC) and even a dough bowl.
