Cuisinart food processors

I have one of the very old Cuisinart food processors...the original DLC 7 that had the lid with the small oval feed tube, no expanding sleeve, and disks with permanently attached straight stems. I later bought the upgrade kit for it that included the new workbowl/lid with the large feed tube, the expanding sleeve and the bent removeable disk stems. I also have a bazillion disks for it.

I also have the juicer attachment and the pasta attachment for the processor. It was in daily use until two years ago, when I bought a small DLC10 for daily use to save wear and tear on the old unit to preserve it for things the small one cannot do. Then came the blade recall....and the blade for the new one was recalled, along with the original blade for the DLC 7. Thank goodness the blade that came with the upgrade kit was not riveted and was not recalled, but the old unit was back in daily use until I finally got the new blade for the new unit this week.

I also have the Cuisinart mini with the 2 cup bowl that I use for chopping nuts and other small jobs.

They just don't make things like this any more. That DLC 7 is more than 30 years old and has been in almost daily use all that time and still works perfectly.

A friend is wanting to buy a new food processor, and I am not sure to tell her what to buy. The new Cuisinart DLC 10 is really not the same quality as my old one. Is there another brand one of you could recommend?

When I want to know which one of a certain product is best, I look for online reviews. I don't look at the website of the company who manufactures the item because they will always claim their product is best. Places like Amazon, eBay, Walmart and other sites, have product reviews made by people who purchased the item. If there are a lot of reviews, I always read a couple that give the product a high rating and all or most of the reviews that give it a low rating. That way you will know all the faults of that item.

I have an old cuisinart too and used it so much something sharp started sticking out of the button to turn it on. I put tape over it. I never did have the disks for it just the S blade. It still works but I ended up buying a different food processor for the disks. Wow is this so light that they had to make suction cups on the bottom to keep it in one place when using.

I won't get rid of my cuisinart but it is stored away for now. I have had this one for years. We shall see how long this new one lasts. Probably no long
