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.
Place soft foods (e.g. meat, fish or soft cheese) 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!

If you want to spend your time using your food processor, rather than cleaning it, do the first task in the mini bowl, then move on to the midi bowl, and finish off with the main bowl.
Always start with the hard or 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 p.5.

The small feed tube is ideal for:
slicing long fruit or vegetables (e.g. cucumbers, carrots, leeks).
Stand the fruit and vegetables upright and close together.
slicing small fruit or vegetables (e.g. strawberries, kiwi fruit, turnips).
Introduce them into the small feed tube one at a time.
grating long fruit or vegetables (e.g. carrots, courgettes) or chunks of cheese.
Stack them horizontally in the small feed tube.
The large feed tube is ideal for:
slicing round fruit or vegetables (e.g. oranges, pineapples, apples, pears, mangoes, tomatoes, potatoes).
Either cut them into large pieces before introducing them into the feed tube, or leave them whole.
Make sure you do not fill it beyond the MAX level indicator, otherwise your food processor will not start.


The mini bowl is ideal for processing small amounts. Use it to chop onions or herbs, mince meat, or whiz 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 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!

The midi bowl is ideal for grating and slicing fruit, vegetables and cheese. Cabbage: roll the leaves one inside the other after discarding the tough core and Some foodstuffs, such as carrots, tend to stain plastic. Rubbing the part with a piece of kitchen paper and a little vegetable oil will remove most of the staining.

Liquid ingredients: never fill the bowl more than a third full.
Solid ingredients: never fill the bowl more than two-thirds full.

When processing large amounts of meat or vegetables, cut the food into 2cm pieces.
If your are chopping meat or fish, use the PULSE button to control the end result.
For vegetable purees, cut the cooked vegetables into large pieces before putting them in the bowl with the metal blade. Use the PULSE button first, then switch to continuous mode (AUTO) until the puree reaches the desired consistency.

Soups, pancake batters, cocktails: the metal blade goes in the bowl first, followed by all the ingredients, then the Blendermix. Your processor is now ready to run.
The Blendermix attachment gives a smooth volute finish.


Soft dough (brioche, choux pastry, etc.): Magimix food processors work on the rapid kneading principle. Doughs are kneaded for just 30 seconds to 1 minute, the precise time depending on the amount and type of dough.
Follow the instructions carefully for each recipe.
Normal dough: 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, put all the non-liquid ingredients (salt, flour, butter, eggs, etc.) in the bowl before adding the liquid ingredients (water, milk, etc.). Only 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.

Make sure your bowl is clean and dry.
Remember to remove the graduated pusher from the lid to let in enough air!
Beaten egg whites: for fluffier 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 stabilizer (e.g. Whip ItR) 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 over processing and it turning into butter.
There are 2 cones: a small one for lemons and limes, and a large one for oranges and grapefruits. The small cone is stored inside the largecone.
