Question

Does making mashed potatoes require the mash and puree kit attachment? If so, will the one for the 4200XL fit this machine?

ith the Magimix 4200xl, the mash and puree kit must be added in order to make mashed potatoes. This is not the same as the puree attachment.

Per Magimix: Yes the Mash and Puree Kit will fit this food processor... They also said "you will be able to make great mashed potatoes without it, BUT the Mash and Puree Kit is nice to have"!

I spoke with the people at Magimix and they said their plastic currently does contain BPA. He was quick to assure me that they are actively working to become completely BPA-free very soon.
