I've had a Cuisinart food processor, almost since the brand started to be sold in the United States, which was a lo-o-ong time ago. The Large Pusher Sleeve Assembly used to last as long as the bowl, but not any more. I go through two of these pusher sleeves a year (sometimes 3 if I'm really unlucky). Cuisinart must be making them out of shoddier plastic than was earlier the case. I'm sticking with the Cuisinart brand (I've never had a problem with the food processor motor), but I wish the company had retained its original high standards concerning the manufacture of the machine's plastic bowl assembly.

The little tips that are part of the locking mechanism usually break off first, and I can still get the food processor to work by pushing down on the inner sleeve with my hand, but eventually the whole plastic tab breaks loose, and then I have to replace the whole large pusher sleeve assembly.

You will see cracks develop in the whole sleeve right away, and it also discolors rather easily, but you have to have the sleeve in order to run the machine.

I was concerned reading some of the reviews here that this pusher sleeve would be a cheap, flimsy replacement part or wouldn't fit at all. My Cuisinart is over 10 years old and the tab finally snapped off the sleeve assembly. Obviously, given how long the original lasted, we aren't as hard on this appliance as some who have written here, but the piece I just received looks like a quality part, snaps in cleanly and feels sturdy enough to last another 10-12. I am very happy with it so far. [My Cuisinart is the Deluxe 11TM and the lid the pusher assembly slides into on my appliance is labeled DLC-8 on the top and DLC-877BTX on the front lock.]

EDIT: It's November 2011 and the pusher sleeve is still fully functional and looks great.

If you own a Cuisinart DLC-7 Series food processor made in Japan in the 1990s, be aware that if one component such as work bowl, lid or pusher/sleeve assembly needs replacement, you will most likely need to replace all three. Last year I replaced the lid, and noticed that it was getting harder to lock the pusher/sleeve assembly into place. When my original work bowl developed cracks and I bought a replacement, it was almost impossible to lock the pusher/sleeve assembly. I contacted Cuisinart, and was told that all components need to be the same color, meaning that you can't mix the original amber work bowl with a clear/gray lid. The first two replacement parts were clear, and my original pusher assembly was amber. I ordered the clear pusher assembly and it now seems to fit fine. The reason? The new parts are made in China and are thinner and lighter than the originals, so they don't connect properly to the original parts. I compared the two pusher/sleeve assemblies, and the original weighs 10 grams more than the replacement. Based on other reviews, I don't expect to get 15 years out of these items, but I suspect that early product failure might have something to do with stress on the plastic due to a poor fit. It's an unexpected expense to replace all the parts, but if the motor on your original machine is in good working order, it may be worth it to extend the life of your kitchen workhorse.

This piece was the only part to our Food Processor that had cracked and become virtually unusable. The unit itself is about 20 years old, with no issues, so it made no sense to buy another one for $200+. This piece is an original factory replacement part, not some second-hand cheap knock-off. It's the real deal and is just a solid as the original part. We hope to get another 20+ years out of it. For less than $30, it's a bargain, especially with Amazon's FREE SHIPPING. If you are debating, debate no longer. Buy it!Cuisinart DLC018BGTX Large Pusher Sleeve Assembly

The product works perfectly for about and a half until the clips break on the back of the pusher that hold the pusher down and engage the safety mechanism. Then you have to buy a new pusher. I am now ordering my fourth replacement. Each one has lasted about 1.5 years. I am happy with its function, just not its durability.

So, I got my Cuisinart a few years back from my mom. She wanted new appliances - and me being a college student, said - GIVE ME THAT I'M POOR! I've used the processor lots over the last 3 years or so - probably a few times a month.

The locking mechanism recently broke, and I needed to replace the assembly. I wouldn't have replaced it - but my wife was complaining about how I was working around the broken mechanism - I was using the broken off clip to push down the locking mechanism and turn it on. Enough of that she said.

I would never have replaced the mechanism if it wasn't for her. Oh well, the new sleeve assembly fits perfectly - it's the legit replacement part, no question about that.

As for the people that claim to break mechanism (the clips I guess) a few times a year - what are you doing?? I do agree - the locking mechanism is flimsy. All I can say is be a bit careful, and it will continue to work for at least a few years. I've started to store the assembly detached from the processor lid so that there is no force on the flimsy clips. I realized that there was a decent amount of force always applied to the clips when just sitting there assembled all the time. This is probably why the mechanisms wear out much faster - you're always applying force to them, basically having them "at work" 24/7. Hopefully my plan works, and this will be the last I have to buy in many years.
