Boy do I have a treat for you today! I recently received the fabulous top of the line Magimix by Robot-Coupe food processor for review. Needless to say, I could not wait to test this gem out! But do you know what’s even better than that?? The lovely people at Magimix generously offered to send one Buttercream Blondie reader their very own food processor!! I told ya this was going to be a good one!
Okay so I definitely want to start off by telling you a little bit about this brand. Magimix by Robot-Coupe invented the first food processor over 40 years ago, and all processors are fully manufactured in Burgundy, France. Now in the restaurant industry the only food processor I have ever used is a robot-coupe. They are the top of the line, commercial grade food processors. It is the only thing to use and they last forever. So Magimix by Robot-Coupe gives you the technology of its commercial models in this sleek looking processor for the home, and is sold exclusively at Williams-Sonoma. Commercial grade + pretty on the counter = big win in my book!
This machine comes in 12, 14, and 16 cup models. I received the 16 cup, and that is definitely the one I would recommend. The first thing I noticed was that it comes with a trio of bowls. They all nest inside of each other so they don’t require additional space and having options is so useful. Sometimes I just need to chop a small amount of something so the small bowl is probably one of the biggest highlights for me. Plus that 16 cup bowl is awesome when I have to make a big batch of crisp topping or pie dough.
The second thing I love is that all the attachments come in their own case. That’s right, gone are the days where you’ll have to rummage through a drawer to find a certain blade. I’m sure you can imagine how many gadgets I have floating around my kitchen, so when a company gives me a storage solution that is neat and doesn’t take up much space, it truly brings me joy. It’s the little things!
As far as performance goes, basically this machine is the mama of all food processors. Even though it has a commercial grade motor, and is extremely powerful, it is super quiet. I have been using it non-stop since I got it, and I love it! Remember when I made these over the top brownies last week?? Well it didn’t just kinda crush those M&Ms, it pulverized them! I also used it to puree my strawberry rhubarb compote when I made these Strawberry Rhubarbaritas which, by the way, will definitely be happening again for Mother’s Day brunch! While we’re on the subject of Mother’s Day, I definitely want to mention that this would make a fabulous gift for the mom who loves to cook!
Aside from all that good stuff, there is also a juice extractor & smoothie attachment. This attachment is sold separately, but when I noted how beyond fantastic I thought it was, they said hey we’ll throw that in too! Yup, you’re getting that too! I drink a lot of smoothies and make lots of sorbet so this attachment is incredibly useful!
Well there you have it! This processor definitely gets my stamp of approval and will always have a spot on my counter. This would make a fantastic Mother’s Day gift for the mom who loves to cook, and like I said is sold exclusively at Williams-Sonoma.
