Vintage Cuisinart food processors

I have in my cabinet a Cuisinart DLC-7 super pro food processor that has a broken blade stem. I've been patiently waiting while browsing thrift stores and yard sales to find a new setup to replace the parts on it. Today I bought a CFP-9 and I'm wondering if anyone knows if the blades and bowls are interchangeable on these two units. I'm hesitant to try it because I don't want to break anything. Thanks!

  1. Try EBAY for a replacement.

    I'm not sure if your new/old are interchangeable but I'd assume if it fits....Easy assumption for me to make with your brand new machine. ;-)

    1. I have some extra parts for the more expensive of the first two Cuisinarts sold in the USA. You can have them for the cost of postage if you want them. The only thing I don't have, IIRC, is an extra steel blade. Or, by "blade stem" do you mean the white thing that attaches to the slicers and shredders?

      7-cup capacity, btw.

      The first pic is of my old Cuisinart's base. The second is of a stem I think I have (I never really used those pieces). The third is a lid I have that goes with another model, but it's interchangeable/same size.

      LMK if you want any of this. My e-mail address is on my profile page.

        I have a CFP9 that has been in constant use since 1975. I ordered the third bowl yesterday from Gourmet Depot in San Francisco. $47. I also have a complete set of discs. I see no reason to have anything else. I replaced the while cover for the motor spindle a few years ago for a couple of bucks. Look under Magimix for parts and accessories.

      2. Well I found a dlc-7e on ebay and bought it for 72.00 with shipping! it came with all of the normal things, and then i made a call to someone for info on some parts. I found out that all of the normal 14 cup processor parts that are made now are downward compatible. The place i found was in NC . They are called Kitchenworks. They were helpful and gave me all of the info on replacement parts if i need them.
