Magimix juicers and food processors get better and better

Thursday, February 14th, 2013

Magimix have made some changes to their food processor and juicer lines, and here at Go-Electrical we like their thinking.

Let’s start with the juicer range; this consisted of the ‘Le Duo XL’ range available in four colours, and the ‘Le Duo Plus XL’ available in just one colour. Magimix have done some switching around and now the ‘Le Duo XL’ is only available in White (18020), whilst the ‘Le Duo Plus XL’ now comes in Black/Silver (18055), Cream (18043) and Black (18045). There is also a new model which has been named ‘Salad & Juice’ (18061). As before the ‘XL’ in the product title means that the juicers feed tube is extra large, and whole fruits and vegetables can be put inside with prior chopping.

The ‘Le Duo XL’ features a citrus press, spatula and recipe book, the ‘Le Duo Plus XL’ features a citrus press, spatula, recipe book and a ‘SmoothieMix’ which Magimix say is “for extracting nectars, smoothies or coulis from fruit and vegetables”, and the ‘Salad & Juice’ model  features all of the above but has a ‘Salad Kit’ and this consists of a vegetable preparation attachment which can slice and grate all kinds of veg to 2mm or 4mm in size.

Magimix have also redesigned inside the juicers. They now feature a new basket which has a removable rim, and this makes cleaning the appliance far quicker and easier. The spout is also easy clean and is designed  for extraction of juice straight into glass.

In the past on this blog we have spoken about the health benefits of juicing and why it is growing ever popular. The Magimix website states, “Nutritionists and Dieticians say that having at least 5 portions of fruit and vegetables a day can help reduce the risk of heart disease and cancer. Natural drinks made with [a juicer] allow you to enjoy the full goodness of fruit and vegetables”. So there really is no reason for hesitation – if you are already considering a juicer then look no further, a Magimix is the one to get.

Take a look at the Juicer pages of the Go-Electrical website for more information, and other juicer models.

The Magimix food processors are incredibly popular, and one of Go-Electrical’s best sellers. Magimix have listened to customer and retailer feedback and decided to reduce the size of the food processor range making it easier for potential buyers to decide on the model which is most suitable for their needs.

Previously the food processor range consisted of models in the following sub categories; ‘3200’, ‘3200XL’, ‘4200’, ‘4200XL’, ‘5200’ and ‘5200XL’. As with the juicer the ‘XL’ stands for ‘extra large’ and this relates to the feed tube – this extra-large feed tube means that vegetables do not need to be chopped up prior to being put in the appliance, and this saves time and washing up, and this could be one of the reasons why Magimix have decided to remove most of the non XL models from their range.

There are so many possibilities with a Magimix food processor, and the brilliant range of accessories that are available increase these possibilities even more – different discs and attachments for mashing and juicing mean that there are no limits. You can take care of your appliance and accessories too by purchasing a protective cover or disc rack – keep everything dust free and all together in the cupboard for those occasions when time is short and faffing needs to be kept at a minimum.

The full Magimix food processor range is now as follows;

3200 White (18326) and Satin (18328)

3200XL Satin (18334)

4200XL White (18431), Cream (18435), Red (18432) and Satin (18434)

5200XL Chrome (18533) and Satin (18534)

5200XL Premium  in ten colour options

Juice, Juicy, Juicier…

Monday, July 4th, 2011

In the past few years there has been a lot of talk about the benefits that juicing can have, and how good it is for a healthy body. I have never really paid any attention before, believing that fruit and vegetable juice was thick, green and a bit stomach churning but I have recently discovered that this is definitely not the case. There are some very tasty recipes around, and it makes a change that something is extremely good for you, actually tastes good!

The benefits of juicing:

Juicing fruit and vegetables means that your body can absorb larger amounts of nutrients more effectively. The body doesn’t need to digest the food so the vitamins and minerals in the juice are absorbed quicker than usual.

If you think about the ‘five a day’ advise, you have to eat the recommended portion size of five different things every day. With juicing you use more fruit and vegetables than you can actually probably eat – its relatively easy to drink enough juice to obtain sufficient amounts of powerful nutrients, especially because juicing makes them so concentrated.

Fresh fruit and vegetables contain lots of brilliant enzymes – enzymes increase your metabolic rate, which means you can burn calories faster. Brilliant if you are trying to lose weight.

We all know how important the liver is, and juicing is a great way of looking after your liver. Certain nutrients are needed to help the liver detoxify, and seen as though the liver has over 700 functions it’s a good idea to look after it! Antioxidents beta-carotene, vitamin C and E and N-acetyle cysteine are all potent liver cleansers, and are all found in fruit and vegetables.

Not only that, the antioxidants from fruit and vegetables contain a wide range of plant chemicals called phytochemicals, and these amazing things been found to have anti-cancer properties.

Vitamin C, E, potassium and magnesium are important for improving the cardiovascular system, and maintaining a healthy heart. Blackberries, kiwi, asparagus and spinach and incredibly rich in all these things – now when would you ever eat those four things together normally? Juicing means it is easier (and probably tastier) to do just that.

Now, be honest, did you know all that about juicing? No, me neither!

Go-Electrical currently have juicers by Dualit and Magimix at brilliant prices, so don’t hesitate in buying one – just think of your health!  The Dualit 88305 is well built and sturdy, it has a large feeding tube which allows for minimum effort, and it features an extra capacity jug. The Magimix juicers come in standard, XL or XL Plus, and are not only available in black and silver, but red, cream and white too. As you would expect with Magimix products they are well made and very reliable.

Once you have purchased your new juicer, why not try one of these tasty recipes to give yourself a boost of energy and kick start better health. Tasty, easy and incredibly good for you!

Go-Electrical & Dualit

Thursday, March 17th, 2011

Go-Electrical is one of the biggest independent retailers of Dualit in the UK, and our warehouse is packed with Dualit stock. We love Dualit!

Dualit have been at the foreground of the consumer market since the late 1970’s, but have been around a lot longer than that. The first flip-sided toaster was made in 1946 and the brand steadily grew through the 1950s and 60s. Throughout the decades, the brand has remained true to founder, Max Gort-Barten’s original vision, and today Dualit provides a range of quality kitchen appliances.

The Dualit toaster is a design icon. From the Vario to the Combi and Bun toaster models, they all share the same timeless styling, reliability and Dualit design features. Dualit toasters are still built by hand in the UK, with the assembler’s stamp on every base plate, and every part is replaceable, meaning that a toaster could be in your household for years and years and years. The perfect wedding present maybe?

We love the range of colours that these classic toasters are available in. From Glacier blue to Azure blue, Mint green to Lime green and Petal pink to Chilli pink there is one to suit every kitchen. If you are after a more understated look then you can choose from the traditional white, cream, black and chrome. Personally I’m a fan of the red – it just looks amazing in my monochrome kitchen!

It’s a lot bigger than toast though. Dualit now have a wide range of kitchen appliances to help you get the most out of your kitchen – it is the hub of the home after all. We love the Dualit Espressivo coffee machine because of its compact size, stylish look and great performance. It may look like a complex appliance, but it is really simple which means it isn’t a lot of effort making delicious coffee before rushing off to work in a morning. The 1.5 litre tank holds enough water for 50 standard espresso shots, and the Thermobloc technology means that hot water and steam is available after just 40 seconds from switch on. Here at Go-Electrical we have the Espressivo available in three fabulous colours – Chrome, Black and Red, perfect for country kitchen or city pad.

Other appliances that we love are all fabulously stylish and extremely reliable and robust. The new XL1500 food processor is great – it is easy to use with 3 different capacity bowls, nine different tools for chopping, mixing, slicing and shredding and a dough blade for pastry and bread making. Perfect for all your cooking and baking needs. The Dualit juice extractor is also an excellent piece of kit – it produces pure juice without froth and the extra capacity pulp container and juice jug allow for continuous juicing. It has a nice large feed tube too, which means less chopping!
