Wouldn’t you know it, but on Christmas Eve as I was getting ready to make crumbs for a casserole dish, I realized that the top of the S blade for my food processor was broken, rendering the machine useless with that blade.

This food processor was a Christmas gift to me back in 1991. I often joke about it aging me as it has turned yellow in color over the years as appliances do sometimes

Well I looked up my model number and looked for a replacement and found one on eBay. The seller wanted $15.50 for it, but we negotiated a deal where I ended up paying $11.50 instead, which was cheaper for me than replacing the entire machine.
Hopefully this will give me many more years of use
The reason I was able to put my hands on the Owners Manual after thirty years is because I keep mine in a three ring binder. I have the binder labeled and I have those plastic page protectors in there. Each pocket holds an owners manual, the receipt if I have it, and the date it was purchased.
This system has saved me several times over the years.
