While the juice extractor is the go-to for straight, pulp-free juice, the Smoothiemix attachment is what gives the machine a versatile dimension. I started by making juice using two apples and a handful of spinach.

Although the fruit was too large to fit down the chute whole, it went in as halves easily. There was no need to core the apples, which made juicing faster; I used the pusher to ease them through the chute. There were no spurts of juice, and the flow was consistent until the machine was switched off. The juice was foamy but pulp-free, and it produced a good yield for the amount of fruit.

Inside, some spinach remained but the majority had been processed. The solid pulp could be easily scraped out using the spatula and rinsed to remove most of the debris. Next, I tried a recipe for apple, carrot and orange juice.
Again, prep was minimal — there was no need to peel the carrot or apple before using the juice extractor. The recipe recommended juicing two oranges with the citrus press.

Halving the fruit, I held it in place on the large cone while running the machine. Each halve was juiced in seconds, the cone reaching all parts and leaving behind minimal flesh. A small amount of wet pulp remained, but the two oranges had produced around ml of juice. The recipe produced enough juice for two glasses — so again, a jug would have been useful. I finished by making the Digestion Booster recipe using the Smoothiemix attachment for a thicker result.
This recommended adding food in a Magimix juicer attachment review order, starting with fresh mint, then pineapple and ginger, followed by cabbage. The first three ingredients went through the chute easily; the cabbage was trickier — not only did it cling to the sides of the chute, it caught on the pusher and inside the bowl. As well as being difficult to process, it produced a small amount of juice — the recipe being for two glasses, but it made only one.
The juice was sweet, with ginger as the dominant flavour but no trace of cabbage at all. Clean-up was straightforward. I used the spatula to scrape away most of the pulp before rinsing the rest by hand.
The rim of the juice extractor also pops off for cleaning, but a brush would be handy. It delivers an impressive yield of juice from hard fruit and veg. It offers less appeal for those who want their juicer to make wheatgrass or dairy alternatives, and some more accessories and a non-drip spout would be welcome. For those who want to do less prep and drink more juice, this no-nonsense machine is the answer.
