Food Processor: Replace Bowl or Machine?

annomy | Oct 13, 2011 12:14 PM

The bowl on my very old Robot Coupe RC2000 food processor broke. (Actually, it was an eight-year-old replacement bowl.) I ordered a replacement for $25 through Amazon that turned out to be for a slightly different model. So now I’m shopping, but not sure for what. I like the size (7 cups), though slightly larger would be nice. I did find an exact replacement, but it’s $50, which seems high for just the bowl! Since the machine itself works and I’ve been very happy with it and have all the attachments, I hate to buy a whole new machine, but there’s a Black & Decker model for $28 that gets decent reviews. Being broke & unemployed, I hate to spend anything extra. The B&D also has no plastic blade, which is occasionally useful for dough, and only a reversible slicer/shredder (not sure how that works). Thoughts? Suggestions? Thanks for the advice.
