Someone at my home used the heated dry on my dishwasher and the lip of my food processor bowl is now bowed out a bit and the lid will not fit properly for use. Has anyone experienced this? If so, did you attempt to reshape the lip of the bowl? How?

I would use a hot blowdryer and try to reshape it.

You can try reshaping it in boiling water but you would need the proper gloves for handling this. Try the blowdryer but it might not be hefty enough. I just got a knock-of replacement for mine last year on eBay for $10

I wonder if you could get a replacement online?

You could try any of these remedies but I do not believe the bowl will ever work properly again. eBay and other sites sell generic replacements for a reasonable cost (maybe that "someone" at your house who did this could pay for the replacement?).


Google your food processor name and model number replacement bowl and you will probably find several low cost offers.
