10 ways to get the most out of your Magimix
1. Keep it accessible
Don’t park this beauty in the dark and dusty depths of a kitchen cupboard. Give it pride of place on a counter top or at least a good spot that is easily accessible. A Magimix Food Processor can save you time, money and can make cooking a joy so make sure it’s not a mission to get it out and find all the parts every time you want to use it.
2. Use the different sized-bowls
Depending on the model you have, the smaller bowls (either midi or mini) work wonders when blitzing smaller quantities such as pastes, dips, mayonnaise or even baby food. Keen to make your own mayonnaise? Here’s how.
3. Use the pulse function
A Magimix has only one speed. Use the pulse function to ensure you achieve the exact texture you desire with dishes such as tomato salsa.
4. Let the Magimix save you time
There is a reason why Jamie Oliver can whip up a feast in 30 minutes (check out his book, Jamie’s 30 Minute Meals). Jamie O is good friends with the food processor. Make it your friend too by setting it to work grating cheese and slicing, shredding and chopping your veggies. Oh, and breadcrumbs. Marvelous.
5. Get the Magimix to work on the jobs you hate
Not so keen on garlic-smelling fingers or dreading that big pile of onions? Send them down the Magimix chute and off you go.
6. Let it help you bake
A Magimix is a glorious thing when it comes to whipping up egg whites. Pop them in and watch them transform.
7. Set it to work on pastry
The Magimix makes pastry-making a breeze. Make perfect pastry for sweet and savoury tarts, quiches et al.
8.Take the elbow grease out of kneading
Use the right attachment and knead your dough. Whether for bread or pizzas, you won’t work up a sweat.
9. Keep your fingers away from the blades
It may sound simple but it’s worth paying careful attention to those fingers and their nemesis, the Magimix blades. The safety mechanism will ensure that the blades won’t spin unless the top is in place but be careful when lifting out your pastry.
10. Make large batches
When making soup, pestos, garlic pastes or chopped chillies, make a big batch and freeze for super-quick cooking at a later stage. Freeze chopped chillies and garlic in ice trays for easy use.
Built to last a lifetime, a Magimix is a marvelous thing. Here’s hoping these tips help you to take it up a gear.
