How To Clean Your Magimix Food Processor

Always ensure your appliance is unplugged before cleaning.

extremely sharp.

Always clean your food processor immediately after use with water and washing-up liquid.

Accessories : use a small brush to clean the base of the accessories

Dough blade : Remove the cap for a more thorough clean

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. Never immerse the motor unit in water.

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 manufacturers instructions to ensure the detergents are compatible with plastic items.

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 food 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.
