The Magimix comes with many attachments that make this product especially useful. It's not just a blender or food processor, the extra attachments let you slice carrots or potatoes quickly and easily. It works very quickly, and the large bowl allows you to slice several ingredients without requiring a change out- for example, carrots, onions, and garlic. Some items may not be the exact same size. This can be a problem when trying to make something like chips, where uniformity is necessary. The powerful motor makes quick work of hard vegetables or thick batters. I've made hummus many times that started out very thick and it never had a problem getting through the mixture. My only tiny complaint is that there are so many parts to wash. You have to wash not only a bowl, blade, and lid, but the blade attachment, blade adapter, and 2 lid inserts. It can be a bit of a hassle. Overall though, this is a great product.
