Wow, I love these scissors. I have tried various ways to chop herbs, from bruising and smooshing them in a food processor, using a froggie and a cutting board with a small bowl cut out of it, those rolling herb things that look like multiple pizza wheels, with a knife and still, I never achieved that even cut that looks so good when sprinkling a hand full of parsley or cilantro over a meal.
These scissors greatly cut down my prep time and the blades scraper on the end of the sheath are spectacular for cleaning the blades. Even if you don't purchase this brand (which I DO recommend this brand), buy the ones with the scraper! Many other brands do not have the scraper. This was the best value I found in my research.
These were used by the amazing chef at a cooking class we attended at Crescent City Cooks in New Orleans last December. She highly recommended them, so I ordered a pair. Happy with the quality and they’re dishwasher safe and have a protective sleeve.
When you first hold these scissors, the quality is clear. While they are lightweight they don't feel flimsy or cheap like some kitchen products. The blades are really, really nice and sharp. I love that these can be used for spring onions (scallots/shallots: depending on country/region) as I don't actually chop that many herbs,
These scissors are great! I use them for fresh herbs as designed. I also use them for chives, bananas and other soft foods that are included in cooking recipes. I use the "comb" to clean the blades.
These scissors are the best tool ever! Instead of chopping up my fresh herbs and scraping them into whatever dish I'm making - I just hold the herbs over the dish and clip away. Fast, convenient, no mess, no fuss. In the morning, when I'm preparing a fresh salad to take to work, instead of having to drag out the knife and cutting board I just snip the fresh basil into the salad. If you flip the cover of the scissors around, the slotted side slides out the bits stuck in the scissors. Quick, easy and no waste. Love it!
These scissors are the bomb! They make cutting herbs a breeze. They are sharp, light weight, easy to use and the blade cleaner makes them easy to clean up! cuts quickly and perfectly. Everyone needs these! Exactly as stated. great value!
