The Magimix by Robot-Coupe 5200XL is a 16 cup powerhouse food processor. From pizza dough to soups and smoothies, it's the only food processor you'll ever need.

Magimix 5200XL Food Processor

Hi there! Today, I'm reviewing something super cool. Have you ever heard of Magimix by Robot Coupe? If not, they're the awesome folks who created the Vision Toaster (yes, you can actually watch as your toast…well, toasts), as well as the powerhouse of a food processor I'm reviewing today.

This processor is one beefy processor - in fact, I imagine you could probably make just about anything in it. From juice and smoothies to pie crust and pizza dough, this workhorse does it all. Mine also came with two attachments - a Juice Extractor & SmoothieMix attachment, and a Creative Slicing Discs attachment.

The Magimix by Robot-Coupe 5200XL features a commercial-grade 1100w motor, and 3 stackable mixing bowls. This machine is very well suited for mass food preparation, and it's especially nice for large dinner parties or events. The motor is very powerful, but best of all, it's super easy to use. There are only three buttons: Off, On, and Pulse - no need for any decision-making regarding speed and/or power. And, thanks to all the attachments, it’s like having a food processor, stand mixer, chopper, slicer & dicer, grater, and juicer all in one. All of the removable parts are also dishwasher safe, so cleanup is a breeze!

You can get the food processor in white or brushed chrome, and the two attachments (sold separately) at Williams-Sonoma. You can also get them as a set from Chefs’ Catalog, in white or the exclusive polished chrome, which I love.
