My 30+ year-old Cuisinart DLC 7Pro is still going strong. However, today when I tried to make fresh bread crumbs, it just didn't "feel" right. Upon inspection, I realized that the plastic piece which"locks" the bowl in place (on the side of the bowl) was broken off. Thus, the bowl was not perfectly locked in postion. The motor was working, and the metal blade was doing it's thing, but the processor clearly was not making the crumbs nearly as well or as quicky as it should have.
I love this processor, and it has been so good to me and I really hope I don't have to replace it.. I did a cursory look to see if I can replace the bowl (through Cuisinart) but could not find that exact model.
Can someone direct me to where I might be able to get a replacement bowl for a discontinued Cuisinart?
If anyone knows, would a bowl that fits the DLC7, also fit the DLC 7Pro?
Thanks for any help/leads/suggestions.
