Repair or replace 35-year-old Cuisinart

risnek | Sep 7, 201909:05 AM     14

I have an old (35+ years) Cuisinart and the locking mechanism on the workbowl has broken for the second time. The motor &c. are still great as far as I can tell. Should I continue to replace parts until the motor wears out or - given its age - go ahead and buy a new one? My belief is that the old machines were made to *really* last and that I’d be better off keeping it, but I know nothing about the features / pros & cons of the new machines. Advice?
