Cuisinart has deservedly come to be synonymous with food processors. It’s a venerable and respected brand and, despite the alarming current recall, Cusinart will no doubt remain a first-class option for home chefs looking to dice, chop, and puree. That said, it’s understandable that the timing for gifting a Cuisinart isn’t great right now. You may not be so comfortable wrapping up its sharp blades for a friend this holiday season.
So what are your options? Fortunately, there are plenty. While Cuisinart holds two of the Top 6 bestseller positions at Amazon, Hamilton Beach owns the first two slots and Ninja owns the other two. Here are the three non-Cuisinart choices in the Top 5 Best sellers.
Nearly 10,000 customer reviews give the Ninja Express Chop and average of 4.5 stars too — and the Ninja is just $19.88 down from $42. Got a young budding chef with limited counter space in the family? Even Consumer Reports raves about the Ninja.
