Make sure your food processor blades haven’t been recalled for hundreds of mouth lacerations before using it for Christmas goodies in the coming weeks. Conair, Cuisinart’s parent company, recently recalled nearly 8 million machines after 69 customers reported finding broken blade fragments in their food. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, 30 instances resulted in mouth lacerations or tooth damage. Cuisinart has long been the undisputed king of food processors and the best Indian food processor.

However, it seems that the king of food processors has been dethroned, with Conair recalling 8 million Cuisinart food processors owing to pieces of the blades falling off into people’s meals and causing oral lacerations (yes, really).

So, if your Cuisinart gets recalled, which food processor should you use instead? Try one of these great models from other brands—and maybe give one to your favorite Cuisinart owner as a Christmas present! They’ll move by your desire to keep their meals free of sharp metal fragments. I’m not sure what else to call that if it isn’t Christmas spirit.

Breville’s primary food processor (MSRP $299.99) should satisfy most needs. On, off, and pulse are all options. Cook’s Illustrated recommends the gadget, which can slice, chop, purée, grate, and combine. You may control the thickness of the slices using the slicing blade.

Sweethome loved the bigger 16-cup Breville Sous Chef food processor (MSRP $368.55; also available on Amazon), but it’s more extensive and more powerful than most people regularly require, according to the company. It is among the best Indian food processors for your kitchen.
