I bought this to replace an older model from Kenwood that had seen better days. I choose this because of the 30 year motor warranty and perceived quality of the product. After using it for our Christmas preparations I can wholeheartedly recommend the XL5200 processor. All of the components are well made and are very usable, the recipe book is lovely and was helpful in familiarisation and getting the use out of the new machine. It is relatively quiet to use and the pulse function is perfect, all of the attachments work very well and the blades are extremely sharp. There is a box to hold the attachments and the plastic in this is quite brittle, ours cracked the first day of use but I have repaired it with tape. The safety features work very well and we have used it for many home made recipes like egg nog, mayonnaise, pesto, kneading, and a lot of chopping for soups. It is now a permanent fixture in our kitchen and used daily by me, my wife and the teenagers.

The best processor, & possibly the last one you will buy
I did a lot of research and there was a lot of information on social media advertising other brands that were more familiar, but his product is the business. I bought the XL5200 and the motor is amazingly quiet so in the kitchen that is helpful, it also has great torque and with a 30 year guarantee on the motor I expect it to keep going with no issues. We do a lot of baking in this house and since we started using the Magimix we have being making pesto and mayonnaise and preparing all the vegetables because it is so easy to use and clean up. So if you are considering buying one I can only recommend it, the blades are amazing and the power more than adequate. We had a Kenwood process for the past 10 years and it just kept braking, the quality of materials in the Magimix are just better.

A Must Have.
For many years I have wanted a magimix, but the price has been out of my reach. This year I treated myself to the 5200XL and without a doubt worth every penny/euro.
I didn't need the 5200xl, but I wanted the satin finish, and the juicer attachment, and Juicers.ie were offering the best value for money. It's great to have the three bowls in one, and when you use one, the others stay clean, the storage box is great so you have everything to hand. I had an extra kitchen counter top put up just so I can keep it out, and not have to take everything in and out as I had to before. I am a great believer you only get what you pay for, and good quality sometimes does come at a price. Would absolutely Recommend.

Magimix brings to you its next model up from the Magimix 4200XL. This is every bit as good as the Magimix 4200XL, however this has a more powerful motor and bigger capacity meaning that it would be ideal for a family kitchen.
The Magimix 5200XL model is the upgraded model to the Magimix 4200XL and has an an even more powerful motor at 1100W vs 950W on the Magimix 4200XL. The size of the food processor bowls are also increased meaning greater working capacity (details of the bowls are indicated below).
The Magimix 5200XL food processor is available in white, red, cream, black and satin and the quality of this food processor is unrivalled. It is backed by a 30 year motor warranty which shows Magimix are confident in the product and is also very quiet in comparison to many of the food processors out there on the market.
The Magimix 5200XL comes with 3 food processing bowls which allows you to use the right bowl for the right job and also saves time in that you don't have to keep washing the bowls out to do the next job. The three size bowls which you get with the food processor are:-
Mini bowl (1.2 litre) for processing small quantities
Midi bowl (2.6 litre) for grating and slicing
Main bowl (3.7 litre) for handling maximum quantities
All of the bowls which are included are made from a material called Tritan which is a very hard and durable plastic and of course all BPA free.
Powerful yet Quiet
Magimix food processors come with an induction motor rather than the common universal motor. This means that this motor has no gear box and is brushless which means it is ultra quiet in comparison to other food processors. However, the lack of noise doesn't mean that it is any less powerful with a 1100W motor. Also induction motors are much more efficient and very reliable meaning you have a food processor which will indeed last the test of time.
The Magimix food processors come with an easy to operate one touch system. There are 3 buttons on the front of the unit. The auto button used for continuous operation, the pulse button for quick bursts and the stop button.
