11 USING THE EGG WHISK The egg whisk is composed of 3 sections, so make sure they are properly assembled. Check that the metal shaft is correctly inserted. Fit the egg whisk onto the motor shaft. It needs to be at the bottom of the bowl. Put the lid on and turn until it locks into position. Stiffly beaten egg whites : put the egg whites in the bowl. Add a pinch of salt and remove the pusher. Whisk continuously for at least 5-10 minutes. Remove the pusher from the feed tube before beating egg whites, otherwise they will not increase in volume. Whipped cream : an hour beforehand, place all the ingredients in the fridge. Pour the whipping cream into the bowl. Remove the pusher. Whisk continuously for 8-10 minutes. 2 3 1 Featuring an exclusive Magimix design, the whisk beats the egg whites more gradually, making them stiffer and giving them greater volume.

12 USING THE GRATING/SLICING DISCS We recommend that you use the discs in the Midi bowl. Slide the extension over the motor shaft. For non-reversible discs, make sure you place the disc the right way up. Place the chosen disc with the relevant reference facing upwards. Slide the disc onto the extension. Turn it so that it slots on properly. This is a two-stage process. • Always handle the discs with care, as the blades are extremely sharp. • Never insert your fingers or a foreign object into the feed tube. Always use the pusher designed for that purpose. W A R N I N G Slicing/grating disc : each side is engraved with a reference code, e.g. R/G4 = 4-mm grater, E/S 2 = 2-mm slicer. R/G4 E/S 2 1 2 3 4 R/G4
Page: 13
13 USING THE GRATING/SLICING DISCS Grating : for longer shreds, lay the fruit and vegetables horizontally in the feed tube. Slicing : Place long fruit and vegetables (e.g. leeks and carrots) upright in the feed tube. Peppers : cut off both ends, make a cut from top to bottom and roll the pepper into a swiss roll shape. Cabbage : after removing the hard central ribs, roll several leaves together, one inside the other. Fill the feed tube with upright pieces of gruyère cheese. If necessary, cut round fruit and vegetables (e.g. tomatoes and apples) in half. Do not be surprised to find small quantities of fruit and vegetables (stubs) on the discs. This is quite normal.

14 OPTIONAL ACCESSORIES The list of accessories supplied with the appliance will vary from one model to another. Juicer made from stainless steel : can extract a clear juice from most types of fruit and vegetables. Parmesan/chocolate grater : perfect for grating parmesan and plain chocolate. 6-mm slicer : for thicker slices of fruit and vegetables. 6-mm grater : for grating fruit and vegetables more thickly. Extra large feed tube : for slicing or grating fruit and vegetables (either left whole or cut into large chunks) to professional standards. Citrus press with lever arm and 2 cones : almost instant juice with no pips and just the right amount of pulp. French fries/veg stick disc : for cutting French fries and fruit and vegetable sticks. Shredding disc : ideal for shredding fruit and vegetables.
Page: 15
15 USING THE CITRUS PRESS Fit the citrus press basket onto the bowl and turn until it locks into position. Select the cone according to the size of your citrus fruit. The large cone should always be slotted onto the small one. Slide the cone onto the motor shaft. Place the lever arm opposite the locking system and clip the tab onto the bottom of the bowl. Place the fruit on top of the cone and press down gently. Excess pressure is unnecessary and may cause damage Lower the arm, switch the machine on and exert a gentle pressure on the arm until all the juice has been extracted. In the case of grapefruit, gentle release the pressure from time to time in order to extract as much juice as possible. Switch the machine off before raising the arm, to avoid any splashing. 1 5 6 7 8 3 4 2

16 These instructions do not apply to the extra large feed tube (XL models). USING THE JUICER Slide the juicer basket onto the motor shaft. Place the lid on the bowl and turn until it locks into position. Wash the fruit and vegetables and cut into chunks. There is no need to peel them if they have thin skin, or to remove the pips. Introduce the fruit or vegetables a few chunks at a time, helping them down with the pusher. When they have all gone through, switch the processor off. You can juice any number of fruit and vegetables, ranging from apples, peaches and pineapple to beetroot, carrots, celery and cucumber. 1 3 4 5 6 Introduce the pusher into the feed tube. Check that the tabs are correctly fixed to the feed tube. 2 Never insert your fingers or a foreign object into the feed tube. Always use the pusher designed for that purpose. Wait until the juicer basket has stopped turning before you open the lid. Do not use the juicer if the sieve has been damaged. !

17 USING THE OPTIONAL DISCS French fries/veg stick disc : to make french fries, arrange the potatoes horizontally in the feed tube. To find out how to fit the discs, read the instructions on p.12. To make fruit or vegetable sticks, lay them horizontally in the feed tube. Parmesan/chocolate grater : to grate chocolate or parmesan cheese, stand the pieces vertically in the feed tube. Shredding disc : for finely shredded vegetables, lay them horizontally in the feed tube. 6-mm slicing disc : stand the fruit and vegetables vertically in the feed tube, either whole or sliced lengthways. 6-mm grating disc : lay the fruit and vegetables horizontally in the feed tube. 1 2
Page: 18
USING THE EXTRA LARGE FEED TUBE Place the lid on the bowl and turn until it locks into position. The feed tube has two openings : an extra large opening for grating and slicing fruit and vegetables, either left whole or cut into large chunks, to professional standards. A narrower opening for liquids and small solid ingredients. The lid features a safety system which means that the machine will only work if the large pusher is properly engaged. French fries/veg stick disc : for making french fries or cutting extra-long fruit and vegetable sticks. Slicing/grating disc : for grating or slicing fruit and vegetables, either left whole or cut into large chunks. Caution : always handle the discs with care, as they are extremely sharp. Do not pack the ingredients into the feed tube too tightly, as the pusher may then become jammed. Do not be surprised to find small quantities of fruit and vegetable (stubs) on the discs. This is entirely normal. ! 1 2 MAX 18

CLEANING The blades may become blunt if they come into frequent contact with certain foodstuffs (parsley, hazelnuts, etc.). You can sharpen them with a sharpening steel. Some foodstuffs such as carrots tend to stain plastic. Rubbing with a piece of kitchen paper and a little vegetable oil will remove most of the staining. * NB : the Compact model’s dough blade does not have a cap. Caution : always handle the blades and discs with care, as they are extremely sharp. Never immerse the motor unit in water. Always unplug your appliance before cleaning it. Accessories : use a bottle brush to clean out the base of the accessories. Dough blade : take off the removable cap* for a more thorough clean. Always clean it immediately after use (water + washing-up liquid). Juicer basket : insert the thin end of the spatula into the basket and scrape it to remove most of the pulp. 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) and avoid the drying cycle (generally above 60 °C) • 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. ! 1 2 3 4 19

20 MAXIMUM PROCESSING CAPACITIES C 3200 CS 4200 CS 5200 • In the case of liquids, never fill the bowl more than 1/3 full. In the case of solids, never fill the bowl more than 2/3 full. • To make optimum use of your food processor and reduce cleaning to a minimum, use the Mini bowl first, then the Midi and finally the Main bowl. Process hard or dry ingredients first and liquid preparations last. • Use the Pulse function to maintain complete control over the final result. You can also use it for roughly chopping or processing. • Use the spatula to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl. • If your processor starts to vibrate, carefully clean and dry the feet. • To achieve the very best results when chopping, grating or slicing soft foodstuffs (meat, fish, soft cheese, etc.), put them in the freezer for a few minutes first. They should be firm but not frozen ! • Mini bowl The Mini bowl is ideal for baby food and can double as a storage container once you have removed the metal blade. You can also put it directly in the microwave (minus the metal blade) to heat food up (purée, baby’s soup, etc.). • Midi bowl The Midi bowl is perfect for grating and slicing cheese, fruit and vegetables. • Metal blade When handling large quantities, cut the meat, vegetables, etc. into 2-cm dice. For soups, sauces, pancake batter, etc., start by combining the solid ingredients. Then, while the machine is running, gradually add the liquid via the feed tube. TIPS Bread 600 g 1 kg 1.3 kg Shortcrust pastry 1 kg 1.4 kg 1.7 kg Brioche 500 g 850 g 1.1 kg Minced meat 750 g 1 kg 1.4 kg Grated / Sliced foodstuffs 800 g 1 kg 1.4 kg Soup 1 Ltr 1.3 Ltr 1.8 Ltr Beaten egg white 2 - 5 3 - 6 3 - 8
Page: 21
21 TIPS Vegetable purée : cut the cooked vegetables into large chunks, put these in the Main bowl and process with the metal blade. Pulse a few times to begin with, then blend continuously to achieve the desired consistency. Fresh herbs : before chopping fresh herbs, check that both the herbs and the bowl are perfectly clean and dry. This way, you will obtain better results and the herbs will keep for longer. Meat and fish : when mincing meat or fish, use the pulse function to monitor the final result. • Dough blade Bread dough, shortcrust pastry, rich shortcrust pastry : begin by combining the solid ingredients (flour, yeast, etc.). Next, while the machine is running, gradually add the liquids (eggs, water, milk) via the feed tube. Leavened dough : use fresh yeast if you can. You can purchase this from your local baker’s or healthfood shop. For best results, always dissolve the yeast in cool liquid. If the water is too hot, it will “kill” the yeast. Dough : Leave your dough to rest or prove at room temperature or in a warm place. That way, it will rise more quickly. • Egg whisk Beaten egg whites : for maximum volume, use eggs at room temperature and add a pinch of salt or a drop of lemon juice. Whipped cream : do not use low fat cream as it will not whip properly. Always use full fat whipping cream. • Discs Mashed potatoes : process your peeled, boiled potatoes using the 4-mm grater. The reversible discs should be stored in the middle of the storage box. As for the non-reversible ones, make sure you arrange them with the Magimix name facing outwards. Some foodstuffs, such as carrots, tend to stain plastic. Rubbing with a piece of kitchen paper and a drop of vegetable oil will remove most of this staining. •Juicer It is a good idea to vary your consumption of fruit and vegetables, as they do not all contain the same substances and are good for you in different ways. The fresher the fruit and vegetables, the higher their vitamin content and the more juice they will yield. Use or drink the juice immediately, if possible, as certain vitamins are destroyed by exposure to light or oxygen. If you have to store the juice for a while, add a few drops of lemon juice to help it keep for longer and put it in the fridge. For optimum yield, press down gently to ensure that the fruit (or vegetable) is in direct contact with the grater.
