electrolux dlx

I understand that the electrolux dlx is now the magic mill dlx assistant. Does anyone know if they are the same machine and if the acceserys are interchangable.

Actually, it's the other way around. The Electrolux Assistent was formerly sold in the US by a company called Magic Mill and was called by the name Magic Mill DLX. (I'm pretty sure that's the way the story goes - I do know that the mixer I bought just a couple months ago came in a box marked "Electrolux Assistent") The mixer is still commonly called DLX by most people I know who own them.

Don't know if all parts are interchangeable, but I do know that the machine is currently sold with a Higher wattage motor than it used to be (currently 600W, formerly 450W). I have never heard or read anyone saying that the older one's motor was not strong enough, so I wouldn't bother to make that a factor in the decision if you've run into a good deal on an older model.

If you don't get the answers you need here, you may want to check out the Yahoo mixer owner's group:

Actually Electrolux deliberately spell the model name assistEnt - which certainly ought to help with internet searching! (And my understanding was that "Magic Mill" was indeed the old US-only branding.)

The machine seems to have various different names in different bits of Europe. "DLX2000" seems to be one designation used, N24 and N26 are others... 

Any more names anywhere?

 

I have seen nothing at all to indicate that any recent(ish) internal changes have made any difference whatsoever to accessory usage - the external connections are just the same, and have been for decades, it seems.

However, regarding internal spare parts, one suspects that there could have been some small changes over the years -- anyway when ordering spare parts (for any machine, not just in the kitchen/bakery) its always good practice to quote the model number, revision and serial number details from the unit's ID plate or sticker.
