    • 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.

      I recommend this product.

    • 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.

      I recommend this product.

    • 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!

    • Does what it claims. Very sharp, cuts through chicken bones with ease. It dosen't look like it would be comfortable I was pleasantly suprised, it fits like a glove. Best part when I'm finished ( especially with chicken ) I take it apart and though it in the dishwasher.

    • Sharp Shears but Take-Apart?

      The scissors are very sharp and excellent at cutting everything I've tried. However, no directions about how to take them apart came with the scissors. I know I'm technically challenged, and it looks like you need a screwdriver to accomplish this task, but I wasn't particularly looking to use another tool to take this apart when I ordered it. I thought it would be easy! Anyway, I'll have my husband take a look at them and if it needs a screwdriver, I'll do it, but am disappointed with that. Otherwise great product!

    • Great scissors!

      I got these scissors because I was tired of trying to cut up chicken with a knife. When I saw these on America's Test Kitchens, I decided to buy them. They are my new everything scissors in the kitchen. I especially love the easy way I can cut up my own chicken now. I don't have a dishwasher, so I really like the fact that they come apart, and I can really get them totally clean.

    • Poultry Butterflying

      My only reservation with these shears is that there is not quite enough leverage for cutting along the backbone when butterflying poultry.

    • High quality shears, not high price

      These Messermeister shears have very sharp edge, adjustible pivot, serrations good for poultry, and steak, yet fine enough for parchment and Saran wrap.
      I bought on recommendation of America's Test Kitchen, and these are excellent quality and value. And only $29!

      Cooking had next to best price, but I like their customr service.

      I recommend this product.
