Then a couple of days ago the plastic inner shaft of the main blade broke (I overloaded the bowl with frozen banana slices for single-ingredient ice cream).
Now what to do? I found a place online that has both bowl and blade, but together they would cost about $90 shipped. New food processors aren't that much more expensive. Still, I dithered, because it was my Nana's machine and also because I worry that "they don't make 'em like they used to."
