The '80s were a horrible time for style and fashion ... but a golden era for kitchen appliances
Finding a new old-stock bowl assembly and post-recall blade made restoring this last-century food processor almost as expensive as a new one, but to my mind, it was worth the effort and cost. I believe the old ones were much better built than the ones in stores today, which were designed by accountants. This one is 30 to 35 years old, and the motor is still powerful enough to shred bowling balls or chop up old automobiles. The most important accessory for one of these things is an electric dishwasher ... washing all those removable parts by hand can be quite a chore ... one that ultimately discourages you from using the appliance very often. All the other extras ... slicing and grating discs, etc ... are on auction sites for not much money.
