arm, to avoid any splashing. Gently
release the pressure from time to time in
order to extract as much juice as possible.
When juicing grapefruit, release the pressure very slightly occasionally,
to extract the maximum amount of juice.
9
REMOVING THE BOWLS AND THE ACCESSORIES
10
Stop the motor and remove the lid by
turning it clockwise.
You can then lift out the mini bowl,
keeping the mini-blade inside.
Carefully remove the mini-blade, before
putting the mini bowl down.
Carefully remove the blade, holding the
rim away from the blades.
Next, remove the support by rotating it,
retaining a firm grasp on the disc. The disc
can also be left fixed to the support for
cleaning.
Storage Box: To ensure safe storage of
sharp blades please ensure accessories
are placed in the correct position in the
storage box.
CLEANING
Always unplug your appliance before cleaning it.
Use a soft sponge with hot water and
washing-up liquid to clean the
attachments.
To clean the bases of the stainless steel
blade and the egg whisk, use a bottle
brush.
The egg whisk can be dismantled for
easy cleaning. Ensure you assemble all
the parts correctly
Motor unit: wipe with a soft, damp cloth.
You must follow certain rules to avoid seriously damaging the removable parts:
• Dishwasher: select the minimum temperature (below 40°C / 100°F) and avoid the
drying cycle (generally above 60°C / 140°F)
• Washing by hand: do not leave the parts to soak in detergent for too long. Avoid
abrasive products (e.g. Brillo, pads).
• Detergents: read the instructions for use to check their compatibility with plastic items.
Do not soak the parts. Wipe after washing.
Be sure to wipe your stainless steel parts to avoid oxidation marks.They do not affect the quality of
the blades, discs and bowls.
Some foodstuffs such as carrots tend to stain plastic. Rubbing with a piece of paper towel and a
little vegetable oil will remove most of the staining.
!
Always handle the blades and discs with care, as they are extremely sharp.
Never immerse the motor unit in water.
11
FUNDAMENTAL RULES
Never use your hand to push the food
down the feed tube.
Never put any utensils or objects down
the feed tube other than pusher provided.
Maxi
Never attempt to chop bones (even small
ones). The machine is not intended for this
purpose. You will irreparably damage
your main blade.
Liquids: Never fill the bowl more than
one-third full. We recommend that you
fill it below the top of the central spindle.
Maxi
Solids: Never fill the bowl more than
two-thirds full.
12
Always remove the pusher from the feed
tube when whisking egg whites as they
will not properly aerate with the pusher
in place.
FUNDAMENTAL RULES
When using the Main Bowl or the
Mini Bowl you can add either liquids or
other ingredients via the feed tube.
The lid must be released before trying to
remove the bowl. If you can not release the
bowl it is because you have not released
the lid.
Never exert too much pressure on the
pusher when using the discs, otherwise
the motor will slow down then stop. If this
happens, press on the STOP button and
wait a moment before switching the
appliance back on.
You can slice and grate in one operation
without emptying the bowl. Simply
reverse the slicing/grating disc.
For small quantities you can in one
operation slice, grate and make a
vinaigrette or mayonnaise without
emptying your bowl. Simply position the
mini bowl above the vegetables in the
main bowl.
Hold the top of the blade securely when
tipping out the contents of the bowl.
13
TIPS
SIMPLICITY
• AUTO button: the motor adapts its speed to the task at hand.
• PULSE button: for more control over the end result.
This is the setting you need for precision chopping or blending.
• Pop soft foods (e.g. meat, fish or soft cheeses) into the freezer for a few minutes to firm them
up before chopping, grating or slicing them in your food processor.
NB. they should be firm, not frozen!
PRACTICALITY
• If you are carrying out several tasks in a row and do not want to spend your whole time
washing up, begin your processing in the mini bowl, then move on to the large one. Start with
the hard, dry ingredients and end with the liquid ones.
• If your appliance starts to vibrate, carefully wash and dry the feet, and check that you have not
exceeded the maximum capacities shown on page 5.
MINI BOWL
• The mini bowl is ideal for processing small amounts. Use it to chop onions or herbs, mince meat,
or whizz up dips, salad dressings and mayonnaise.
• Before chopping fresh herbs, check that both the herbs and the bowl are
perfectly clean and dry. This will ensure that you get the very best results. The herbs will also
keep for longer.
• You can use the mini bowl directly as a serving dish, providing you remember to remove the
metal blade first!
MAIN BOWL
● Liquid ingredients: never fill the bowl more than a third full.
● Solid ingredients: never fill the bowl more than two-thirds full.
METAL BLADE
• When processing large amounts of meat or vegetables, cut the food into 2-cm pieces.
• If your are chopping meat or fish, use the pulse setting to control the end result.
• For vegetable purées, cut the cooked vegetables into large pieces before putting them in the
bowl with the metal blade. Use the pulse setting first, then switch to continuous mode (AUTO)
until the vegetables reach the desired consistency.
14
TIPS
• Soft doughs (brioche, choux pastry, etc.): Magimix food processors
work on the rapid kneading principle. Doughs are kneaded for 30
seconds to 1 minute - the exact time depends on the amount and type
of dough. Follow the instructions carefully for each recipe.
• Normal doughs: for faster results, leave the dough to rise or prove at
(or slightly above) room temperature.
As flour is very light, you may sometimes notice a cloud of flour escaping from the bowl. To avoid
this happening, only add the liquids (water, milk, etc.) once you have put all the other ingredients
(salt, flour, butter, eggs, etc.) in the bowl. You can then switch your food processor on.
• You can store dough in the freezer for up to 2 months, providing you wrap it carefully in cling
film. Remember to take it out the day before you intend to use it.
BLENDERMIX
● Soups, pancake batters, cocktails: put the metal blade in the bowl first,
then add all the ingredients. Next, position the BlenderMix in the bowl
and switch your food processor on.
•
•
•
•
EGG WHISK
Make sure your bowl is clean and dry.
Remember to remove the pusher from the lid to let in enough air!
Beaten egg whites: for lighter egg whites, use eggs that are at room temperature.
Whipped cream: do not use fat-free or low-fat cream, as it will not whip! Make sure the full-fat
whipping or double cream you use is chilled.
• Place the food processor bowl in the freezer for 10 minutes beforehand. If you
can track it down, add some powdered stabiliser (e.g. Whip It) to the cream,
as this will keep it stiff for several hours in the fridge.
• Keep a close eye on the cream while it is being whipped, to avoid it turning
into butter.
CITRUS PRESS
• There are 2 cones: a small one for lemons
and limes, and a large one for
oranges and grapefruit.
