Once you start using kitchen scissors you’ll wonder how you coped without them. Not only are they useful for opening packaging, they're a great way to cut certain ingredients without the need for a chopping board and knife (great when cooking with kids). They're useful for snipping herbs, and cutting through bacon and pizza.
SIZE AND COMFORT
The handles should be big enough for everyone in the household's hands, and comfortable enough that prolonged use won't rub and lead to calluses.
It’s important that the scissors aren’t stiff to open and close.
Kitchen scissors should be sharp enough to cut through both soft and hard ingredients with relative ease.
