Fast and Fantastic!
Wow wow wow! Yes it is worth it! Makes prep very easy, simple and FAST. I have always had a food processor but this machine takes it to the next level. Unbelievable quality of machine, discs and blades. Excellent end result. Very minimal "waste" with the slicing grating discs. The blender mix attachment, that comes in the box, makes liquids really SMOOTH and SILKY. The 3200xl is large enough for 4 people. It is so fast, processes in seconds. If you need a larger amount make two lots, simple. The cookbook and online recipes are a great starter a...nd prompter. Good to have these available to ensure you get the best out of your magimix. Made the brioche in the cookbook, very quick in processing. Seconds. End result once baked, even texture through the whole loaf. I purchased the creative kit and the citrus press, to complete my way of food preparation. Fabulous! Great promotion with the dicing kit as a bonus. Thank you magimix.
Great time saver especially making cold slaws grating and slicing
I love my 3200xl but unfortunately I haven’t had any luck beating egg whites in it and I would like a cover for it . Can you advise where to buy one?

Can't live without it! Excellent service
My original Magimix eventually gave its last gasp after over 30 years of use, so with great confidence, I downsized models and replaced it with a new Magimix. I was absolutely thrilled with it for over 3 years. It has a quiet powerful motor and I love it's compact size. I never doubted my decision to replace it with a smaller version of the same brand. My daughter also purchased the family size model (which I used to own) She loves it too and has not had any problems with it.
However, the black handle cracked recently while it was in the dish...

A $600 unit should not be so flimsy!
I purchased the 3200xl 2 years ago. I've now had to replace the lid twice from the plastic piece that clips into the base to engage it snapping off. It's cost me $99 each time and I'm just furious now.
A supposed "shatterproof" plastic bowl/lid is certainly not the case. It seems to be a major flaw in the manufacture of this machine.
Cambur (Magimix) are incredibly rude and unhelpful so DO NOT think that their claims of 30 years (motor) 3 years (parts) warranty are reassuring, it's like getting blood out of a stone. They just claim you must ...
Ok, except plastic blade cap can fall off and get "minced" together with food.
I was very happy with this food processor until the blade cap fell off while I was processing food...of course it was partially minced by the blade before I could stop the machine. What a dreadful racket and sound! Without the cap, when processing liquids, eg. soup, there can be leakage. I also feel like the blade is no longer as sharp as a result of processing hard blade cap! Bowral Cookshop are taking no role in this matter and are offering no after sales service. They have referred me to Cambur industries in Melbourne. All i want is another ...cap and advice on how to stop it happening again! No quick solution there...i have to now photograph blade with missing cap and together with proof of purchase put in writing what happened. Hmmm...to be continued.
Shocking attitude in regard to warranty and service
My original Magimix eventually gave its last gasp after over 40 years of use, so with great confidence, I replaced it with a new Magimix.. Within 6 months the motor makes a terrible grinding sound. I took the unit back to David Jones who rang the 'distributor" Cambur in Victoria. I spoke to them and found them extremely rude and also arrogant. Service is available from just one place in Sydney and DJ's said they can take months to do a repair. Magimix products will never be bought again by me or my family and friends. This an expensive mistake!!!
A solid machine that is actually quite large despite being the smallest model. The three bowls give lots of options however my only gripe would be that the larger bowls do get some food scraps when using the smaller bowls inside them. Other than that, a heavy, quiet but powerful machine that gets the job done. I have also purchased the dicing attachment which works well. It sits on the kitchen bench so I can use anytime.
Great product would recommend it to a friend!
Finally, the product that delivers every time! I am very happy with my purchase and looks stylish on my kitchen bench, it is easy to use and the manual is easy to navigate. All the attachments work as described in the manual. I would recommend this product to a friend. I should have bought this long time ago.
It does the job well
I bought this for my kitchen needs and it did not dissapoint me. Everything works perfectly. I think this is the best investment I ever had. It enable me to be more creative with my cooking. It reduces my preparation time prior to cooking and baking. It has proved to be a time saving device.
Not worth the money
This machine worked ok until the plastic body snapped and now requires a $200+ repair. A 30yr warranty on the motor is totally useless if it's housed in a faulty plastic body! The attitude of the supplier was quite rude and lack of service agents disappointing. I'd recommend buying something else!
plastic bowl & lid cracked with occasional use only
I love the way this machine works, but the plastic bowl & lid have cracked with occasional use only. The crack on the large bowl is actually where the bowl was originally sealed, ie, exactly half-way around from the handle, running from the top to bottom. It sprays a fine mist when blitzing liquids. I'm not rough on my appliances, so this is a significant fault in workmanship. Quite disgusted as the cost of replacing these parts is ridiculous ($230). I likely bought it over 3 years ago so it's out of warranty of course.
Quiet and powerful
I recently bought this appliance and it has made my life so much easier. It's not loud like my mix master and extremely powerful. It makes biscuit dough or protein balls so easy. I have yet to try out all the attachments. It is rather bulky and requires significant bench space or cupboard storage.
The machine its self is just fine for my current needs. I just gave away my old but still functioning "Cuisinie System Pro" away to have more counter space. However the container for the discs etc. is the ridiculous size of an old fashion bread box. Think about that for anyone living in small Paris Studio as I do.
Rge Magimix 3200 is just what what I wanted. My daughter bought the same model Two months ago.
The machine is fine but the "bread box" container for the accesspries is pretentious.
Glad I took the leap and purchased this machine. It has awesome performance and is really easy to clean. Have used it for egg whisking, shredding carrot, juliette carrot (with extra disk), slicing zucchini, all work fabulously fast and exceed expectations. I tried chopping rosemary in the mini bowl and was disappointed so bought the Le Micro and they compliment each other well. Definitely would recommend to others. Its a good size and does not take up too much room on the bench compared to other models.
Love everything about it, cleaning is far easier than expecting
Herbs aren't really suitable, the blade does not turn fast enough.
