The OXO Good Grips Kitchen & Herb Scissors are a must have tool in every kitchen. These are ideal for quickly snipping fresh herbs into sauces and other dishes without having to continually chop them with a knife for a specific texture. These are also ideal for deboning chicken and other meats as well as cutting bacon for frying. If you require a thinly sliced or small chunked meat for a dish, these kitchen scissors will zip right through them faster than you can cut it all up with a knife. Also use these scissors to cut fresh pasta noodles to an appropriate size, to cut dumplings into boiling water and to open packages. They can be used for regular cutting when tranditional scissors cannot be found as well.
