Advantages Powerful yet quiet commercial grade motor, non-drip spout, 2 citrus press attachments included, robust, good build quality, spatula included for cleaning, dishwasher safe parts, pure fruit juice devoid of additives
The thought of drinking your own freshly prepared juice squeezed from a variety of common and exotic fruit or vegetables according to your choice, packed with vitamins and full in taste sounded very appealing; it is then that I decided to invest in a juicer; Le Duo by Magimix.
Meet ‘Le Duo’; my long lasting reliable, quiet yet powerful French partner……..
There is whole variety of juicers, extractors, blenders etc available on the market today; the list of manufacturers and brand names is endless. Some of the extractors available allow; citrus fruit extraction only, some allow all fruit and vegetables; some allow juice collection straight into glass or container of your choice, whilst others have an attached juice container. This opinion is on Magimix’s Juice extractor and will analyse its merits and features and any drawbacks. I will also mention some other juicers you may wish to consider at the end.Magimix is a reputable French company that was one of the first to make the food processor. It is well known for its reliable, robust, and long lasting quality products. Today, Magimix makes a host of other products in addition to food processors; such as; ice-cream makers and juice extractors. With this information at hand I had no doubt I was about to start a long lasting relationship with my French partner; Magimix’s Le Duo.
On first impressions; Le Duo looks neat, compact and very sturdy. The outside is made of high quality plastic, has a sturdy base and seems to weigh a tonne! Unlike some juicers I had seen it did not appear flimsy or easily breakable.
Magimix - Le Duo
The juicer comprises of a commercial grade 250W induction motor housed in the base of the extractor. The upper part of the juicer contains a stainless steel juice extractor basket with tiny teeth that sits on top of the motor spindle; it will ensure extraction of the last drop of juice. On top of the stainless steel basket sits the plastic lid with a feedtube this slots easily on top of the basket; one turn anticlockwise ensures it locks into place. There is also a pusher to help feed the vegetables or fruit in through the feedtube. Also included are 2 cones for citrus fruit juice extraction; one small for lemons etc and a larger one for grapefruits, oranges etc. How many times have you bought appliances and are figuring out where the On/Off button is? (as quite often it will be a small obscure switch hidden at back of the machine!) Well on this machine you cant miss it! It’s on the front of the extractor; it is one large black coloured oval On/Off button that softly switches on or off. One of the best design features on ‘Le Duo’ is the ‘anti drip’ metal spout; push this spout up and it locks into it’s closed ‘anti-drip’ position, push it down and it allows juice to flow again. All the parts have snug tight fit and click into place effortlessly, making assembly very quick and easy. Before you use the juice extractor for the first time, you must wash all the parts.
