    Mine is fantastic for zapping soups, and I think you will find the bowls will be great for chopping onions, breadcrumbs etc

    Thanks for your reply wogglemaker, I do make a lot of soup so that is a good idea.

    I have seen 'magimix' cookery books in charity shops in the past, and was wondering if any of you have favourite recipes or unusual uses for your machines.

    Perhaps all of the OSers here prefer Kenwood mixers and breadmakers

    Wow, £8 - what a bargain! I love my Magimix. Had it for years and although it looks a bit the worse for wear it is still going strong. I find it is a godsent when I am doing my batch cooking for curries and bolognese. I have saved gallons of tears over the years by letting it chop the onions. Does the 4100 have the small bowl as well? That is actually really good for making pesto, curry paste (or any sort of spice paste really) and mayonnaise. Mine came with a recipe booklet but I have never used it.

    hi there,

    Hubby and i got a magimix in the summer as a wedidng present (used vocuhers from different people to buy it) and I love it! its great for making breadcrumbs, pates, preads, stuffings, slicing veg thinly for gratins, colslaw etc. If you go to the magimix website think you can download the recipe booklet that comes with a new machine.

    Good luck!

    Well done, that's a real bargain!

    I use mine (5200) for...
    • slicing large quantities of onions (using the slicing disk), but make sure you leave the room after taking the lid off!
    • grating parmesan (there's a special disk for that!)
    • grating cheese, grating carrots (for salad/carrot cake), slicing veg for soup/casseroles
    • make vast quantities of cake batter (often using the all-in-one method), which can be separated to make it different flavours if needed before cooking
    • beating up to 16 eggwhites at once for e.g. meringue/pavlova/tiramisu
    • Soup
    • Houmous & other dips (tapenade, baba ganoush, smoked mackeral pate)
    I also have a magimix juicer, and use the centrifuge in the food processor as a sieve e.g. for tomato soup to get rid of pips & skins

    Keep it on your work surface, and you'll use it constantly... you're VERY lucky!
