Dilemma-replace bowl (again) or get new food processor?

AGM_Cape_Cod | Jun 20, 2009 08:46 AM

I have a Robot Coupe 3500 which is about 30 years old and works fabulously except that the bowls are not holding up. I have replaced the bowl twice (at $90 each time). This time I ordered the Magimix bowl that fits the RB 3500 but the lid doesn't fit the new bowl. The lid won't make the connection that starts the motor. I can order the lid (and the pusher) for $46 and see if it works. OR I can buy a new food processor all together. If I do I am considering either the Magimix (having had such success with the Robot Coupe) or the Cuisinart Elite Die-Cast Food Processor so looking at a minimum of $300. On one hand it doesn't make sense to throw out the Robot Coupe that works when I can replace the bowl and on the other hand it doesn't make sense to keep spending $100 to replace bowls when I have almost purchased a new food processor. Any advice for me? TIA
