Magimix by Robot-Coupe 16- Cup Food Processor {ARV $500}


I have a confession to make, I have never owned a food processor.  I’ve wanted one for a long time, so I was over the moon excited when I recently received a Magimix by Robot-Coupe 16 Cup Food Processor to review and I loved it so much I’ve got one to give away too!!!  And get this…….it is not just a food processor, it also works with a Juice Extractor and Smoothie Attachment (yeah, the winner gets that too!)

Robot-Coupe is a French company that has been making food processors for over 40 years. In fact, their founder invented one of the very first food processors. They  have a reputation for being solid and well-built; you will find Robot-Coupe food processors in many restaurant kitchens. Their food processors are made in France, and the motors come with a 12-year-guarantee. Astounding!

Magimix 5200 XL (ARP $499.95)

The Magimix 5200XL has a nice large feed tube & pusher for greater convenience & speed when slicing, shredding or grating larger potatoes, cabbage, cheese, etc. The design also allows the 5200xl food processor to be used left or right handed with comfort. Building on the strengths of the 4200, the 5200 features a commercial grade 1100w motor and  3 mixing bowls. This machine is suited to large food preparation for the cook that needs to slice or grate in quantities, as well as a great tool for large parties and dinners.


  • 6-cup, 12-cup and 16-cup mixing bowls.
  • 2 metal Sabatier blades, one for small bowl, and one for medium and large bowls.
  • Dough blade.
  • 2 grating discs; 2 mm and 4 mm.
  • 2 slicing discs; 2 mm and 4 mm.
  • Blender mix attachment.
  • Citrus Press.
  • Egg whisk.
  • Spatula.
  • Recipe book and DVD.
  • Storage box.

Let me tell you, this workhorse is DREAMY!  You can shred, mix, puree, make juices, smoothies, soups, jams, sorbets, doughs, and more all with one machine. The Magimix by Robot-Coupe comes with three work bowls that stack inside each other, when you are using the smallest bowl to process something (nuts or herbs for example), you stack it right inside the large bowl.  No need to stop and wash the bowls while making a recipe, love that!  Thanks to all the attachments, it’s like having a food processor, mixer, mini chopper, grater, mandoline, and juice press all in one. The motor is very powerful, and very quiet and does its job; you don’t even have to scrape the bowl when adding ingredients.

This food processor is super easy to use.  There are only three buttons: Off, On, and Pulse. No decisions to make about speed and power. All removable parts are dishwasher safe, so clean up is a breeze as well!

Magimix Attachments

In addition to the attachments that come with the machine, Magimix also offers additional attachments such as a Dough Bowl Attachment (on my wish list) , a Mash and Puree Kit(great for big batches of mashed potatoes), a Creative Slicing Discs Kit and my favorite, the Juice Extractor and Smoothie Attachment (besides being great for smoothies, I can’t wait to use this to make jam).

Magimix juicer attachment

Magimix by Robot-Coupe Food Processor Juice Extractor & Smoothie Attachment (ARP $79.95)

  • Ideal for making creamy all-natural smoothies, juices, flavorful sorbets and other dishes that call for fresh juice
  • Efficiently processes juice for jams, jellies, sorbets and soups.
  • Works with standard fruits like citrus, and includes a funnel for soft fruits such as strawberries and bananas.

Splurge-worthy? I say yes! Don’t do a LOT of cooking for large goups? The Magimix by Robot-Coupe Food Processor comes in three sizes-a 12, 14, and 16 cup (exclusively available in the US at Williams Sonoma),  so you can choose the size that best fits your kitchen needs.

If you are in the market for a workhorse food processor, you can’t do better than this one!

Do you know a Dad who loves to be in the kitchen?  This would make a great Father’s Day gift!

  8. I follow you on Facebook.

  9. I follow you on pinterest.

  10. I think I would like the juice extractor, maybe the most. That is a hard question! I’m looking for some attachment that would take the place of the hand food mill to make applesauce, you know, toke the seed and peels all out! I wonder if this would work for that?

  11. I like Magimix and Tidymom on FB.

  12. Hi!

    I would LOVE to win this! Like you… I don’t own a food processor… but have always wanted one to make homemade hummus and the healthy dinners in the Sneaky Moms cookbook. The feature I like the best about this processor is that it’s commercial grade… meaning it’s one SERIOUS food processor. I think that this is the kind of tool I would keep and use forever.

    Thanks for doing this contest and for considering me as an applicant.

  13. I would love to try the dough hook

  18. Found you on Pinterest and am following you.


  20. I would love this!! I’ve never owned one and the things I could make would be limitless! I make custom cakes and this would make my life so much easier!

  21. I am a 55 year old woman who wants to lose 70 lbs in order to be healthier for myself, kids and grandkids. I am short, only 5′ 1″, so every extra pound seems twice as much. I would like to win this so I can use it to juice healthy veggies and fruits, make healthy smoothies, and get my passion for life and healthy living back. I LOVE it that this can also be used not only right-handed, but also left-handed, since my youngest son is only 16 and wants to be a Chef someday. He will be graduating as a senior in 2013, and is already looking at culinary schools. He is LEFT-HANDED, so this would be something not only I could use, but that HE could use also! NOT many kitchen appliances out there that cater to BOTH right and left-handed users. If I won this and lost all the weight, it would be all over Facebook that I used this product to do so!!!! <3 – Gail Russell of Nebraska

  22. Wow, I would love to make smoothies with it!

  23. I like tidymom on fb

  24. I would love this food processor for when I make pie crust so I can cut in the butter. I have never owned a food processor ever and I have been married 24 years. this would be a great addition.

  25. There’s no way I’m going to win…since at this point there are close to 3000 comments. LOL. But how much do I want that juicer? A LOT! And that is what I would use it for…to change my eating habits and juice my meals.

  26. I like TidyMom on facebook!

  27. I just followed you on Pinterest!

  28. Wow this thing looks neat. I would use a lot of features, probably most like juicing, I eat a lot of fruit and veggies, and it’s hard for me to chew them all up. I’ve been looking into a vita-mix but the price, being disabled I’ve been saving for a long time, but I just have to use as much of my strength as I can to process things by hand. I’ve never even heard of this thing before I’m going to have to read more perhaps.

  29. I already liked you that’s where I saw this, I like magimix on facebook.

  30. I followed on Pintreset.

  31. I love that I can use it for smoothies!

  39. The food processing period. I make my own very hard breadcrumbs and machine is not able to handle it very well.

  40. I would love this for smoothest and fresh juice, grated cheese for homemade man n cheese! Mmmm
