Check eBay for bargain parts. Even for obsolete machines.

I am going to keep it until it dies, when I replace it, I will likely get a kitchenaid or cuisinart. I give it pretty light use, so it should last a while.

This one is similar to the one I have.
that looks like the one i have. i bought it on amazon for around that price. for the light duty i give it, it works just fine.

At Bed Bath & Bryond, which isn't discount, they had a small Cuisinart for under $100. It's doable.

Bed Bath & Beyond also mails out those 20 percent off coupons. That would really make it more reasonable. Our Bed Bath & Beyond also takes expired 20 percent off coupons.

Last year I purchased wolfgang puck's 7 cup food processor in 4 payments from HSN. It works really good and it comes with extras and a small drawer at the bottom to put all the accessories in.

Wolfgang Puck 7-Cup Food Processor at HSN.com

Right now they have it for 2 payments with free shipping.
