The work bowl and lid of my Cuisinart DLC 2100 are full of stress fractures in the areas that connect to the safety trigger. It is only a matter of time before the whole thing stops working. Replacement parts will run me about $90, so I'm looking for a new food processor.
Has Cuisinart gone downhill in quality? My first machine lasted about 15 years (also died of stress fractures in the trigger mechanism, but the machine was so old that replacement parts weren't available)and this one is only 4 years old or so.
I hate to give up the collection of blades, but if there is something people have found to be more reliable and just as good, I'm ready to switch.
I need a reasonably large bowl, 8 cup minimum, 10 or more preferred. The bowl MUST be liquid-tight and not allow leakage between the bowl and top.
