Magimix 3200XL Review

I was very generously sent the Magimix by Robot-Coupe 3200XL 12-Cup Food Processor to review on my blog. As a dietitian, I love to cook and to try new kitchen products that can make healthy cooking easier. I wanted to share this Magimix Nut Butter that I made with it.

I work as a dietitian in a nursing home and this is my second nursing home that we have used a Robot-Coupe for the residents that need a pureed diet. It is simply the best and I was excited to try a Magimix at home which is made by Robot-Coupe.

This processor uses the technology of its commercial models to this food processor for the home. It comes with so many different components and accessories so that it is versatile.

-Extremely powerful, extra-quiet motor.

-Trio of work bowls allows you to carry out multiple tasks in rapid succession, without stopping to wash a bowl.

-Small bowl is perfect for mincing herbs, chopping nuts or blending a sauce.

-Medium bowl is ideal for slicing and grating.

-Large bowl handles prep jobs like mixing batters, kneading dough and slicing a large batch of vegetables.

-Motor automatically adjusts power and speed to suit job at hand.

-Razor-sharp Sabatier stainless-steel blades and stainless-steel discs, strong enough for a variety of tasks including crushing ice.

-Extra-large feed tube eliminates need to precut most ingredients.

 What really impressed me was how many different blades that this food processor came with. It can do so many different things including make dough, grate, slice, blend, etc. It includes a 6, 10 and 12 cup mixing bowls, 2 Sabatier blades, a dough blade, 2 grating disks, 2 slicing disks, a blender mix attachment, an egg whisk and a spatula. I beautiful chrome color looks great in my stainless steel kitchen. I plan to keep this on display since it is so nice.

This food processor is currently on sale at Williams at Sonoma for $300-$350. Even though that may sound like a lot, for what it comes with, it is actually quite a good deal. I am beyond in love with my new food processor. I literally made my parents come over to see it because I was so excited.

Some things that I plan to make in this food processor are:
-Shredded potatoes for homemade potato pancakes

-Homemade salsa

-Shredded carrots to throw in soups


-Pureed soups

-Whole wheat bread dough

-Fresh fruit sauces

As you can see, there are tons of different healthy options to make with a food processor. I believe that this is a great tool to make homemade, healthy foods. The possibilities are endless of what you can make.

Magimix Peanut Butter

I have been wanting to make homemade peanut butter since I saw it on a healthy living blog years ago. Since I just got this beautiful Magimix food processor, I figured it was time to make something new to me.

1 1/2 cups peanuts (I chose Planters dry roasted, unsalted peanuts)
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon caramel sauce
(The last three ingredients are optional. I added them as I blended the peanuts to give it some extra flavor and loosen it up a bit.)

1. Place peanuts in food processor and grind.
2. After about 1 minute, peanuts will begin to change from powder to a ball in the food processor. Keep blending.
3. Add additional ingredients as desired. Blend to a desired consistency. I blended for about 3-4 minutes total.

 Blended for 1 minute

 After 3 minutes

This nut butter is so easy to make that I will definitely do it again. Since nut butters such as almond, pecan and pistachio are so expensive, I will definitely be making nut butter with these. They are a healthy option and this method will save me tons of money.

This Magimix food processor was awesome. I used the smallest bowl that it came with which fits within the larger bowls during blending. This food processor was very strong and I could definitely see the difference between this and my old food processor.
