R.I.P. Trusty old Cuisinart

After 19 years and I don’t know how many pizza crusts, my trusty old Cuisinart food processor bit the dust this evening. The cause of death is cracks in the drive shaft and the blade assembly at their interface point. It’s been making motor bearing noise for years though so I’ve known the time was coming.

Quoth Dana, “I think you got your money’s worth out of it.”

It almost couldn’t happen at a better time as this weekend is a holiday weekend and that means that there will be a sale at the outlet mall. It will probably be replaced with a KitchenAid.
