Small, electrical kitchen appliances are notorious for their propensity to break - their planned obsolescence (when stuff is purposefully designed to break) being one of the driving factors behind our motivation to create this site.

Magimix has been designing and building sturdy, efficient and easy-to-use kitchen appliances in the heart of Burgundy for more than 40 years.

It might be easy for us to remain haunted by those old demons - but with MagiMix’s 30-year motor guarantee, on top of the stacks of recommendations whizzing into our inbox, we think (with care) that this food processor could be the one for your life.

The 4200XL is an ideal blend - not large and cumbersome, but with the capacity and functionality to last for years down the line.
