A kitchen tool specifically made for food preparation that is more versatile than a standard pair of cutting scissors. This utensil is made with a plastic or rubber coated handle, allowing ease of cutting and gripping. The blades have a notch for cutting through poultry joints. Various parts of the handle can be used for opening jars and bottles, as a screwdriver and to pry off lids. The scissor consists of two separate sections or sides that work together to cut. They can be detached from each other to be easily washed and dried. The blade is sturdy and made from aluminum or stainless steel.
When selecting, make sure the blades open sufficiently for the needs of the work required in the kitchen, but are not too large to become clumsy and no allow smaller cutting chores to be accomplished. Many shears are built to handle the cutting of the thinner bones such as occurs when butterflying chicken, so if chores of this nature are desired, make sure the blades are built to allow forceful cutting without excessive or unbalanced pressure.
