This stem attaches your slicing and grating discs to your motor. The fact that it is detachable allows you to switch it out for different discs based on how you need to use your processor. It is compatible with the DLC-8 Cuisinart food processor.
Note: Cuisinart used to manufacture discs with attached stems, but now only manufactures them as separate pieces (the stem separate from the disc). These two-part discs and stems work on older models, so you can purchase this as a replacement for older machines.
The first part I ordered was the wrong one, but upon calling the customer service person she sent me the correct one. Thank you for excellent assistance. It was reassuring to be able to order a part for an older appliance in this day and age of all things disposable
One comment I ordered the wrong one because the copy about it said it fit older models. I guess mine wasnt older!!!
We moved and unfortunately the blade stem and dough blade were lost. Our Cuisinart Food Prcoessor is an older model, so I wasn’t sure we could find proper replacements. I was thrilled to find that Kitchen Works had them. The ordering process was easy and they shipped promptly. The parts are the perfect size and match for our old Cuisinart, Yay! (And thanks.)
