Features to look out for:
There's a lot more to a pair of good kitchen shears than you may think! The right features can make using them faster and more effective:
Construction. Stainless steel blades are preferred as they are powerful, durable and rust-proof.
Smooth cutting action. Blades should be sharp, easy to open and close and well-aligned to ensure a clean cut every time.
Handles. Handles can be rounded or straight. Soft handles are easier on the hands while cutting. They should also fit nicely in the hand when you hold them for absolute control.
Non slip. A non slip handle made from plastic or rubber is ideal if you are cutting through chicken bones or other tough material where you need to apply greater force.
Safety lock. A safety lock will keep the blades closed when not in use to prevent accidental cuts and injuries.
Sharpness. Sharp blades are key to getting clean edges and impeccable presentation when cutting through poultry and other foods.
Easy cleaning. Some kitchen scissors come apart so that you can easily clean each individual component.
Other features. You can find herb strippers to easily remove stems and leaves from herbs, sheaths for preserving the sharpness of blades and spring-loaded handles for one-handed use.
How to look after your new kitchen scissors and shears
While many kitchen scissors may be dishwasher-safe, it is recommended that you hand wash them and dry with a towel to avoid potential damage. You can keep the blades sharp by using a knife sharpener or sharpening steel.
