The Cuisinart DLC-8 and DLC-7 expanded sleeve fits inside of the chute on the workbowl cover. It consists of two parts that nestle inside one another and cannot be separated, but they do expand and contract like a telescope. This sleeve features two clear prongs that connect with the workbowl cover to engage the motor. Without this sleeve securely in place, your food processor will not operate. It can also be used with the small white pusher, which fits inside of the inner sleeve and assists in pushing ingredients through.
Note: The small white pusher is sold separately.
This sleeve is not compatible with the DLC-7E series, the DLC-8E series, or the DLC-8F series.
*It is not compatible with the updated Tritan DLC-7 & DFP-14 lid.
If you have a DLC-7 model and only need to replace the sleeve, confirm that your current sleeve resembles the one shown here and has the two prongs extending on one side. One prong will be longer than the other. If it does, this will likely be a compatible replacement.
If you need to replace more than just the sleeve on your DLC-7 model (i.e. the workbowl and/or the workbowl cover), you will need to purchase the full DLC-7 & DFP-14 4-Piece Tritan kit, which contains a completely different sleeve than the one shown here.
If you have a DLC-8 model and you are trying to find a replacement for a sleeve that does not have the 2 plastic prongs on one side, then you must purchase the updated DLC-8 4-Piece Tritan kit.
Cuisinart DLC-8 and DLC-7 Model Expanded Sleeve
Have had my Cuisinart for at least 30 years. It works perfectly but that one work bowl sleeve had a crack. I was so glad to find this part. It fits perfectly and will keep my Cuisinart running for another 30 years, I'm sure.
Exactly what I needed-have had my DLC7 for 40 years and it is still a workhorse. So glad you had the correct part.
My Cuisinart Food Processor is over 41 years old and has been put through lots of use from simple chopping to bread making for years. I’ve never had a problem with the motor but did replace the bowl and sleeve over 20 years ago. Imagine my disappointment when told by Cuisinart that the broken sleeve could no longer be replaced. I found Kitchen Works by searching replacement parts online and received the brand new part in a little over a week. Here’s to using my beloved Food Processor for many more years.
Arrived quickly and fits perfectly on my very old cuisinart!
