    • 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.

    • 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.

    • So Worth the Money

      These are a great pair of utility shears esp. when your cutting a whole chicken up or for wings. The take apart for cleaning makes it all worth it. Very sharp and America's Test Kitchen highly recommends these shears. I was sold!

      The main problem we were having was the ability to completely clean our kitchen shears. They actually were a pair of Fiskars brand utility sissors that had been pulled into service in the kitchen.

      We saw an equipment test on America's Test Kitchen for the Messermeister Shears and decided to purchase a pair on that recommendation. They are all that was stated on the show and so far have held up to our varied uses. The ability to coma apart for cleaning and being dishwasher safe has made these shears a great part of our cooking experience.

    • Take aparts keep them clean!

      I hadn't realized that these also double as a jar opener and church key.

      They come apart easily so you can keep them clean as a whistle - a MUST for kitchen shears.

    • Everything I expected

      This is a great pair of kitchen shears. They work as regular scissors (something my last kitchen shears didn't do) and as poultry shears. They easily cut around a chicken's backbone for grilling and snipping off turkey wing tips. Plus it was cheaper than my last pair.

      Couldn't be happier.

    • re Messermeister Take-Apart Shears

      Great kitchen shears. The take-apart feature is SO good for really cleaning the blades. My only problem is with the screwdriver on the handle end. A totally unnecessary feature. And I don't enjoy getting stuck with it when I reach for the shears.

    • Best Kitchen Scissors Ever!

      I did alot of research before I bought these scissors. I am so pleased that I decided on these. They are the sharpest scissors I've ever had. They come apart by simply opening them as far as they will open and then just pulling apart. They are far superior than any other scissors I've ever had. I just bought another pair for my mom for christmas!
