This is what celebrity life coach Sloan Sheridan-Williams had to say about her experience using the Magimix Cook Expert…
When I try a product like this for the first time I put it through its paces by choosing one of my favourite meals and seeing if it can make a dish that’s not been quite perfected by another similar product on the market. My choice was risotto.
I have used a different machine that did a similar function but when it came to risotto I was always straight back to my hob, doing it the old fashioned way. Standing over a risotto stirring continuously for 20 minutes is not conducive to getting things done, and so I have been searching for a product that would be up to the challenge. Magimix assured me it could and would surprise me but did it?
The simple answer is yes, but it truly exceeded my expectations. It was ridiculously simple to make and not a mushy grain of rice in sight. The trick is getting the measurements of water to rice just right and replacing the usual blade with a dough hook, but apart from that, the complexity is up to you as to what oils you choose and which grain of rice to make your risotto the perfect combination of al dente and comforting. Your toughest thought will be “do you add wine before the stock or go teetotal”. Then it’s the jewel of the risotto the star of the show, the key ingredients. For me I choose seafood but there are so many choices, and Magimix can handle them all.
And it doesn’t just make risottos.
It also makes amazing smoothies…
And the perfect pizza dough, leaving you to choose your favourite toppings…
Fantastically fresh pasta sauces are also a firm favourite here at SLOAN!
The Magimix Cook Expert takes the hard work out of cooking allowing you to be as creative as you want.
The hidden gems that Magimix have really got right are:
- 30 year motor warranty and a 30 year availability of all attachments
- separating the scales to improve accuracy and longevity
- a powerful rinse cycle that does much of the cleaning for you
- creating a fabulous spatula that can be detached from its silicone making cleaning super easy if like me you are cooking stickier items like rice. The bowl is resistant to scratching so scrape away.
- a generously sized bowl of 3.5l which not only provides larger portions or allows you to invite more friends and family round for dinner to connect and bond over your delicious creations.
I originally thought the flaw I would be mentioning here is that the recipes are not within the machine but accessible via an app, but that actually has not made any difference to me at all. It’s easy to get your phone, tablet or old fashioned cookbook out and follow a recipe and I am very much looking forward to when they allow us to upload our own recipes to their app.
The only thing I would change is to be told that certain things prepare better with a dough hook because risotto is one of them. Had I not known this before I started cooking with my Magimix I could easily have missed out on my perfect risotto. Should it be included as standard, not necessarily but it should definitely be highlighted more as a key piece to bakers and risotto makers!
