Upgrading Magimix 5150 Feed Tube to XL

choco_lab38 | Nov 29, 2008 09:38 PM

Does anyone know if the large bowl and lid of the 5200XL (wide feed tube model, available in europe) will fit a 5150? I found a UK source for spare parts and I'm willing to pay for another large bowl and lid in order to have a larger feed tube.
The feed tube on the 5150 is ridiculous--it's so narrow that it drives me nuts when I'm trying to use the slicing or shredding disks (It requires prep work just to fit food into the tube and I'd like to be able to make french fries that are longer than 1 1/2 inches!)
The site says 5200xl lid is not compatible with any other machine, but it doesn't make sense because the bowls appear to fit all models. I wonder if they're just trying to stop people from buying lower priced machines and upgrading it with a few parts?
