The motor is still working just fine. The machine has always made good pizza/bread dough and ground up/mixed stuff reasonably well. It's not so great at shredding and I often have to use a box grater instead. I cook a lot, and would appreciate a machine that can actually shred food. But I have made do with this one in a pinch.
I can order another work bowl for about $40 and I assume this one will also break after a few years of light usage. Or I could buy a new machine, for about $150-200. I have seen recommendations for a particular Cuisinart (not the one that has been recalled).
$200 is a significant expenditure for me and I also need a new vacuum cleaner soon.
Would you repair or replace in this situation?
