Magimix Cook Expert
Not quite what I thought but seems to be a very good machine, just need a lot of space to store it.
The few functions I have used so far seem to work OK although the ice crush didn't seem to work well at all?
The slicer is fast and a time saver for me.
The bowl is an easy clean which is good.
I haven't' used the cooking part yet.
Great machine the whole family enjoys!
The Cook Expert is such a great machine for cooking all kinds of things, my daughters and I love using it. Love the large bowl with the clear lid and all the different functions it has to offer.
Magimix cook expert
I love my magimix expert & have never been happier. Now i can cook w/out alot of fuss. As we get older we need to work smarter notharder&magimix is the answer.
Great gadget: Versatile and easy to use
Loving my upgrade to the magimix expert. It’s versatile, performing a range of functions with an easy change of accessory. The stainless steel bowl is easy to clean and it’s even enticed my teenagers to cook more often. Great all in one kitchen gadget.
Love it! I can’t imagine my life without it now!!
The Magimix is fantastic. The quality is great and so easy to use. The glass lid is great and the screw on cap is so a great feature. Love the big bowl for feeding the whole family.
Great machine and excellent customer service
I bought my Cook Expert in September 2019 after much deliberation - after all, it's an expensive machine! What sold me is the versatility, I was looking for an all in one cooking machine and this definitely fits the bill, not to mention the quality of the build. I haven't quite mastered the use yet but have made lots of delicious meals and treats! I don't usually write reviews but what compelled me to write this is the fantastic customer service I have received - I have had two faults (a damaged blade and the base stopped working). In the first...case they simply sent me a new blade - no questions asked. In the second case they organised for a loan base to be shipped to me whilst moen was repaird, all at no cost to me! If you're tossing up between this and another macine I'd recommend this for the customer service alone! Thanks Magimix!
Have just upgraded from a Bellini and all I can say is WOW - wish I had bought this sooner. Really happy and looking forward to cooking so much more - my love for cooking has been renewed
Essential kitchen gadget!
Bought this magimix in December 2020 as my 8 yr old daughter gift to my wife for her birthday. We were initially choosing between thermomix and magimix but after much research decided on the latter due to value and safety reviews. My wife really loved this gift and saved her a lot of time and effort in preparing soups and risotto among a few yummy recipes she has tried. This also enabled my young daughter and her Mom to cook together due to how easy it is to use. Our one regret was not buying magimix sooner. This replaced our kitchen aid and vitamix.
Love my amazing Cook Expert
So glad I took the plunge it is everything I expected. I am using it every day with some great successes and only a few little learning adventures. Love the glass lid, steam cap and that the metal bowl is cool to the touch. It is solidly built and I am impressed it doesn't move on the bench even at high speed. I really love the rinse cycle.
The display panel looked daunting but I have found it so much easier to navigate than I expected.
I am really looking forward to using and learning more about my new kitchen helper
Excellent quality machine. Built to last. Exceeded my expectations
Really impressed with the quality of the machine. Absolutely love that there's no junky plastic steamer (its all stainless) or annoying lid closure system. The convenience of one machine to cook grate, blend and slice with superior quality bowls delighted me.
This is an exceptionally well thought out machine. Once you've done the USB update it cooks brilliantly at that higher temperature and doesn't moosh up ingredients like you might think. First thing I made was the beef and ale hot pot, it was delicious and melt in the mouth with the ...addition of Lancashire relish. It browned the meat and sweated the eschallots perfectly then slow cooked to perfection. Recommend you get a second set of seals for garlic free deserts :P Rinse function is exceptionally good. Wasn't that enamoured with the dough hook. Bread was very gluggy, however I think it will make great pasta dough. Haven't tried the fruit juicer yet but it looked well constructed. It would have to make the best bechamel sauce ever. Cooks out every bit of the flour and leaves you with a perfectly smooth velvety sauce. I'm making hollandaise now I have complete confidence in the temperature. The spot on and flash fast heating saves time money and stress for me I use it many times a day for elements of a dish or a whole menu. Couldn't recommend more highly! Brought enjoyment back into cooking again for me because I have a disability and I'm no longer on my feet for hours on end to do quality recipes. Worth the price for that!
Easy, Safe and a Pleasure to use
I have found using Magimix a pleasure
The lid is secure. The glass cover allows me to preview the cooking. The stainless steel bowl doesn't burn my hands as I am cooking. It has precautionary warning messages to prevent me from opening the lid if the blades are still moving. Washing the bowl is a breeze using the Rinsing mode.
Temperatures for Browning mode goes up to 160C and allows me to do caramels and stir fries.
Braising food does not shred the chicken at speeds 1A. Pastry and Cake modes are simple to use and the cakes are moist and fluf...
Great Kitchen Companion
Cook Expert has been a wonderful replacement for many of our worn out and tired appliances breathing fresh life and inspiration to our kitchen. Makes a perfect Pavlova every time. The kids love the ice crusher on the hot days.
Learning to become a chef
anything that requires heat and stirring this machine makes you an expert
The food is cooked evenly and heated at the same time
Love the solid feel to this product. Great fun
Very Useful and Easy to Use
After much research, I purchased the Cook Expert; it appeared to be the best value. I had a Magimix Food processor for over 40 years so this also influenced me. The Cook Expert replaces the food processor at double the capacity and the stainless steel bowl for cooking is large enough for a family meal. I've used some of the recipes from the book and adapted my own. The product cooks well but the blade does make a squeal near the end of the program when hot. The onion/garlic odour from the seal lingers; it has been washed in the dishwasher separately from the lid several times. My Christmas present is a seal for desserts and the dessert cook book.
Excellent product but one problem with the blade, when it’s reaches a high temperature
The blade squeak.
I’ve called customer service they were very helpful, they are going to replacing the blade.
Overall I’m really enjoying cooking and processing with it . I highly recommend this product.
So far it is brilliant!
I purchased this in the hope that it would renew my interest in cooking, enable me to make things from scratch so I can reduce packaging & waste, as well as eliminating hidden nasties in my diet by not buying processed food. So far it has done all of this and I have only had it a week! I am definitely hooked. I have made Turkish Bread, vegetable sausage rolls, hummus & mango sorbet. Having just discovered their FB page, I look forward to their demonstrations so I can get up to speed as quickly as possible.
I am new to Magimix cook expert but so far its been great. Good time saver, while the onions are browning I can do extra things instead of standing over the normal fry pan stirring the pan to make sure the onions don't burn.
It gets to temperature very quickly and is easy to work. I have been using YouTube videos to make some great dishes. The steamer bowl was easy to use clean and the food is tastier and healthier for you.
Very Happy Customer!
Fantastic - easy to use
Had this for 1 week. Used it every day. I was worried about spending so much money on an appliance but its such a time saver - you won't be disappointed. I love it is easy to clean, and the navigation is easy. Ive been using thermo mix recipes as there are heaps around and adjusting to Magimix. Its great - happy i chose this not a Thermo. The stainless steel bowl is heavier than i expected but very usable.
Simple and Easy to use
New Cook Expert arrived and started cooking straight away. Super easy to set up and the instructions make sense. Early days but so far so good!
Rang Magimix Australia with a query and they were so helpful. Bought from David Jones during sale
Amazing!! Don’t know how I lived without it!!
I’m just new and still learning heaps and look forward to learning more and more. Love how quick and easy it is to prepare meals and the food processor is such a bonus. My only regret is I didn’t have the Magimix CE from years ago!!
easy to use
my only frustration is that I can't get the new update to work with my iPad ! hopefully Magimix will help me fix this issue fingers crossed. aside from. that it works very well
Perfect risotto. Easy clean and fantastic self clean option. Food processor is top quality and have had perfect results so far. Looking forward to using all attachments and expanding my repertoire of dishes.
Low quality for a high price
This is the first time I write a review on a product and I really think it is worth warning anyone who'd like to buy this very expensive machine. While it does overall what it is supposed to, the material quality is very low and breaks easily, and the vendor support is terrible. I have purchased the Magimix Cook expert about 18 months ago and had issues after 1 month with the appliance lid which was leaking. I've reported it on their online support page, no response, no acknowledgment of the receipt of my email, however, 1,5 months later I rece...ived an email confirming they will replace the part. Now another part of the machine has broken while I had only used it for about 10 times and I've reported it, however, it has now been more than 2 months that I've been waiting for an acknowledgment or response from the company and nothing, not even an email confirming they received my request. For a product that is that expensive, you would expect the parts not to break so easily plus you would also expect a premium support service. Overall very disappointed with the product and vendor.
Love the ease of this machine
Still learning how much this machine can do.
Build is amazing and fairly easy to use.
The meals I've cooked have all turned out great especially desserts.
A few things that I would say I'n not completely satisfied with would be is the ease of getting everything out of the metal bowl. Is a little hard to get everything out once cooked.
The other thing which is a little annoying is the + & - buttons for the settings. It would be so much easier & quicker if they were on a dial or wheel control instead of buttons. Maybe the Temp button could be ...
My French Kitchen Helper
Believe it or not but my journey to purchase a Cookexpert began with the COVID-19 Lockdown! My husband decided to help out a French chef who had lost his job and had no income, so we employed him to help cook for our family. We had four teenagers plus two adults in the house, all working or schooling from home. He was a Godsend, and he would bring a different branded mixer/cook appliance with him, and treat us to all manner of scrumptious dishes. Suffice to say, I was so impressed with both him and the appliance. When he left I researched w...hich appliance to purchase and I am so delighted with my decision. The Magimix CE allows me to cook just like him-with dishes such as Creme brulee, Hollandaise sauce, Chocolate Brownies plus Beef Bourginon. It is versatile so I can adapt our favourite recipes and cook biscuits, curries and dips to feed the family. I am still learning how to use it, but so far it is great. I consider myself very lucky to still have a French kitchen helper, in the way of the Magimix CE Expert, in my house!
Questions & Answers
Is speed 18 can only run 1 min?
Hi Gigi! Yes, speeds 14-18 can only run for 1min for safety reasons.
Can you grind oats to flour?
Hi Sezzles, yes you are able to do that using the Crushed Ice program. You can run it until you achieve your desired consistency. Hope this helps!
My cook expert lid suddenly seems to have the glass part of the lid moving around a lot. We have recently had a problem with the lid seal, which has separated into two parts. I am just wondering if the thinner seal is supposed to anchor the glass lid, to stop it from moving easily, and stop liquids from coming out. We have ordered a new seal. Hopefully this will fix the problem. Any thoughts anyone???

At $2, 299, the Magimix Cook Expert is a premium all-in-one kitchen appliance that’s actually $30 more expensive than the renowned Thermomix TM6. But with three consecutive award wins under its belt, its high price is thankfully matched by its high performance.
A few advantages over the Thermomix TM6
On paper, there are a few benefits of investing in a Magimix compared to shelling the cash on a TM6.
The Magimix has a maximum heating efficiency of 1, 700 watts, which includes a 900W regular motor and a 800W induction heating motor. This is compared to the Thermomix TM6, which comes just slightly under with a maximum heating efficiency of 1, 000 watts.
The Thermomix’s maximum bowl capacity is 2.2 litres - and the only standard bowl included is just a single bowl.
The Magimix, on the other hand, comes standard with a 3.5L capacity stainless steel metal bowl, as well 3 transparent multifunction bowls. Each of these extra bowls gradually increase in size, starting from 1.2-litres, to 2.6 litres, and finishing at 3.6 litres.
Other Standard Inclusions
Other standard accessories provided with the Magimix include a steamer basket, mini blade, egg whisk, 2 and 4-mm slicer, grater, universal blade, metal blade, spatula, kitchen scales, a recipe book with over 300 recipes, and a free Cook Expert app.
12 auto programs
The Magimix is designed with 12 auto programs, whereas the Thermomix has 20 cooking functions and 14 pre-set modes.
Here are the offerings from the Magimix Cook Expert: Cook (pureed soup, creamed soup, simmer, steam); bake (pastry/cake, bread/brioche, whisk); blender (smoothie, frozen dessert, crush); food processor and an automatic rinsing function.
Points of Praise
- The extensive range of cooking functions available with the Magimix was widely praised by reviewers. The food processor was a particular favourite amongst home chefs.
- Food made using the Magimix is often described as being delicious
- The Magimix is built sturdily, with an outstanding build quality.
- This appliance was described by reviewers as conveniently easy to clean, thanks to the inclusion of dishwasher-safe parts.
Points to Consider
Since the Magimix features such a diverse range of functions, several reviewers expressed that learning how to use the appliance in its entirety would take a long time. However, many reviewers who had the patience and passion for cooking didn’t find this to be a problem at all.
