Pros and cons
The concept of take-apart utility shears is great and is very handy. Unfortunately, the screw that holds the two blades together loosens very easily and has to be constantly tightened. For my uses, this isnt' a major problem, but is something to consider.6 of 9 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »
These shears are sharp and work very well. I especially appreciate the fact that my large hands easily fit the handles.6 of 9 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »
recommended by cooks test kitchen. I agree.
I used these to replace another excellent pair of kitchen shears made by Wusthof. They are old, well used and did not easily separate for cleaning, These have a slimmer cut profile and just the right angle near the fulcrum to cut effortlessly thru poultry bone. Easily recommended.5 of 7 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »
Love these kitchen shears!
They are sharp, heavy/durable, easy to wash, and they make food prep noticeably easier and faster than with a knife in many cases!4 of 7 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »
Easy to butterfly a chicken
I was able to cut the backbone from a raw chicken very easily. I haven't used them for anything else.
Cleaning them is easy. I think the packaging says they are dishwasher safe, but they are easy to clean by hand because the two blades separate easily.
