Kitchen Tip: kitchen scissors

One of the handiest 'gadgets' in my kitchen is a pair of wonderful kitchen scissors that I keep in the knife drawer!
(Some are very sharp; be careful!)

These cut raw meat, veggies, fruits, cooked meat, open everything with one fatal snip, and they cut quick bite-sized pieces for the little ones who can't cut some of their own food up yet! ;-)
4 cuts (like a tic-tac-toe board) across a stack of waffles and wallah! Kid ready!

Tips for getting the best value: don't get the kind with a plastic hinge/screw! They break!
Get stainless steel blades and they will sharpen right-back-up! Do NOT wash them in the dishwasher! It causes them to rust and the hinge will break.
On my wish list, - a pair that comes apart so they can get squeaky clean after every use!

However, DH bought me a pair some time back, that is very sharp and has a guard to cover the blades while they are not in use.

Lucky you!!! :>)

I love my kitchen shears as well. My MIL bought me a pair that comes apart, and I love them.
