WHEN NOT IN USE ALWAYS LEAVE THE LID IN THE UNLOCKED
POSITION, SWITCH OFF THE POWER AT THE MAINS, AND UNPLUG.
DO NOT USE THE APPLIANCE IF THE ROTATING SIEVE IS DAMAGED.
NOTES ON
USING THE MAGIMIX
• The Magimix is fitted with a double safety mechanism. If the bowl and lid are
not correctly locked into position the machine will not start.
• If you cannot twist the lid to close it it means that the bowl is not in the
correct position. Remove the lid and, making sure the bowl is fitted correctly
onto the base, turn it anti-clockwise as far as it will go.
• Never remove the lid without having first pressed the “off” switch.
• A temperature control circuit breaker is included in the machine and motor
will automatically stop if it has been running for too long or if the bowl is too
full. If this happens press the “stop” switch and leave for 15-30 minutes. As
soon as the motor has cooled to a safe temperature it will operate normally.
11
FUNDAMENTAL RULES
Never use a hand to push the food
down the feed tube.
Never put any ustensil or object
down the feed tube.
Never attempt to chop bones (even
small ones). The machine is not
intended for this purpose. You will
irretrievably damage your metal
blade.
Liquids : Neven fill the bowl above
the level of the central spindle. For
thin liquids fill below this level.
Do not fill the bowl more than two
thirds full with food or above the
blade casing with liquids.
Never leave the pusher in when
whisking egg whites or they will not
be properly aerated.
12
Do not carry the accessory box by
the lid, it could fall open.
Always hold the box from the underneath.
The lid must be released before
trying to remove the bowl.
If you can not release the bowl it is
because you have not first released
the lid.
The bowl is designed to take boiling
liquids.
When using the mini-bowl you can
add either liquids or other ingredients through the feed tube.
The mini-bowl is ideal for baby
foods, just remove the knife and it
can be used as a storage serving
bowl.
13
If you wish to re-heat baby food you
can put the mini-bowl (but not the
metal blade) into a Microwave.
However never put the main bowl
into a Microwave.
You can slice and grate in one operation without emptying the bowl.
Simply reverse the slicing/grating
discs.
For small quantities you can in one
operation slice, grate and make a
vinaigrette or mayonnaise without
emptying your main bowl. Simply
position the mini-bowl above the
vegetables in the main bowl.
You can use the juice extractor as a
sieve (fish soups, etc.). In this case
do not put the special juice extractor
guide and pusher in the feed tube.
After processing remove the blade
from the bowl. With liquids remove
the bowl and carefully hold the
blade in place when pouring the
contents into a bowl.
Use the spatula to scrape out the
bottom and the sides of the bowl.

IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always be followed:
1. Read all instructions and retain for future reference
2. To protect against electrical hazards, do not immerse cord, plugs, or the appliance in
water or other liquids.
3. Unplug from outlet when not in use and before cleaning.
4. Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord, or plug or after the appliance
malfunctions or has been damaged in any way.
5. In the event of a malfunction, a list of approved Service Agents is included with the
Guarantee documentation, further details may be obtained by contacting the Magimix
Customer Care Department on 01483 427411.
6. Do not use outdoors
7. Do not let the cord touch hot surfaces or hang over the edge of a table or counter
8. Do not place on or near a hot gas or electric burner
9. Do not use the appliance for other than intended domestic use
10. Prior to connecting or disconnecting the plug from the wall socket, ensure that all
machine controls are in the "OFF" position.
11. Do not overload the machine, see page 20 for a table of capacities. The bowl should
not be filled with liquid ingredients above the level of the central plastic spindle as
leakage will occur.
12. Due to the speed with which the Magimix processes food, larger quantities of food
can be quickly processed by dividing the food into smaller batches and processing
one batch at a time.
13. The bowl is made to withstand hot or boiling liquids. Some recipes may require the
addition of hot sugar syrup to other ingredients while the machine is operating.
Obviously when handling hot foods, extra care is necessary particularly when the
food is to be poured down the feed tube.
14. When it is necessary for dry and liquid ingredients to be mixed together, place the
dry ingredients in the bowl and, with the machine running, pour in the liquid
ingredients through the feed tube.
15. Always store the double bladed knife and discs out of the reach of children. DO
NOT ALLOW SMALL CHILDREN TO OPERATE THE MACHINE.
16. Always wait until the double bladed knife or discs have stopped turning before
removing the lid.
17. When using the discs always use the plastic pusher to guide food down the feed
tube. NEVER ATTEMPT to push food down the tube with fingers or any other form of
utensil. If an ingredient is stuck in the feed tube or a piece of food does not go
through the disc, stop the machine and wait for the disc to stop turning before
dislodging the food.
18. If very hard foods are processed in the Magimix the machine may vibrate. This is
quite normal and can be controlled by slight pressure of the hands on the side of the
machine.
19. Always ensure that when using the double bladed knife and dough blade on the
Cuisine Systeme range, the cone shaped "adaptor" is always in position on top of the
blade. This is not necessary on the Compact range where each blade has a flat cap.
20. Always ensure that the bowl and required blade or disc are correctly positioned
before adding food.
21. If your Magimix is overloaded the motor may overheat. A temperature control circuit
breaker is included in the machine to guard against this. If the motor overheats it will
automatically cut off and, as soon as it has cooled to a safe temperature (15-20
minutes), it will operate normally.
22. All parts of the Magimix are easy to clean. The base must not be immersed in water
but should be wiped clean with a damp cloth. All other parts should be washed in
hop soapy water, rinsed and dried thoroughly; or can be put in the dishwasher.
However due to modern day dishwashers and dishwasher detergents, the bowl and
lid may deteriorate over a period of time.
23. Ensure the safety mechanism is kept clean and free of food.
24. Your machine should give you many years of trouble free service, however we would
recommend that it is taken to an authorised service agent at least every five years in
order that it may be thoroughly checked.
25. Only lock the bowl and lid into position when the machine is in use.
21
What Can The MAGIMIX Do?
Magimix machines are manufactured in France for people who really care about
their food. You now own a machine that will take many of the laborious food
preparation chores off your hands leaving you free to devote your attention to
the actual cooking and presentation of the finished dish. Your Magimix food
processor will chop, mince, liquidize, slice, shred and grate, make pastry, cakes
and dough, giving perfect results in only seconds, and what is more, when all
the work is completed, you have a piece of equipment that is easy to clean.
The double-bladed knife is the accessory which will probably most frequently be
used. It can be used to process various types and quantities of food and for a
range of purposes, from coarse chopping to producing a smooth purée, to
mixing blending and liquidising. Hard or soft ingredients may be processed
using the double-bladed knife and ingredients may be placed in the bowl or
gradually fed in through the feed tube while the machine is running. During
processing it may be necessary to stop the machine to scrape food down from
the sides of the bowl. Do not exceed the maximum capacities given in the
recipe book.
The mini-bowl or mini-processor does the same job as the main bowl but it will
process very small quantities. A few sprigs of parsley or a couple of cloves of
garlic can be chopped very satisfactorily in the mini-bowl and there will be no
need to wash up the main bowl. It can also be used for vinaigrette, sauces and
baby foods and there are many examples given in the recipe book.
The Midi Bowl* can be used with the following accessories: discs, egg whisk
and citrus press (optional accessory depending on the models), there will be no
need to wash up the main bowl.
The work capacity of the Midi Bowl* is the same as for Compact 2100.
It is suggested in the recipes that, before processing, many types of food are
cut into I” (2.5 cm) cubes. Obviously this is a guide-line and it is often
unnecessary to cut chunks into pieces as small as this or in the shape of a
cube. As you become familiar with your machine you will be able to judge the
correct size for pieces of food to be processed and the time that will be
required.
The recipes in the book are designed to give some nice and unusual ideas but
also cover all the main uses of the Magimix food processor. Recipes are given
for pastry and bread: Follow them and you will find how easy and satisfactory it
is to bake at home. The cake recipes use the all-in-one method, which is not
only very quick, but, in the Magimix food processor, the most satisfactory way
of making a cake.
Using a Magimix food processor to its full potential is, when you have familiarised yourself with the machine, a question of experiment and discovery. You
will find that the more you use your Magimix food processor the more it will
become an essential part of your life. It will speed up the preparation of your
favourite dishes and inspire you to cook dishes that, in the past, always seemed
too time consuming and ambitious.
Do no attempt to process: Exceptionally hard cheese, except through the
Parmesan disc; bones or hard gristle, coffee beans, hard spices such as cloves
or peppercorns, tough cores or skins, very dry biltong.
*Midi Bowl: not available for Compact 2100 and other models depending on the Country of sale.
