My Scotch™ Kitchen Scissors

One of the most important gadgets in my kitchen is my pair of kitchen scissors. We CANNOT live without it.

We use it every day for so many things. Trim the ends of my flowers. Cut bacon into bits. Snip my herbs and spring onions. Open packages. Cut my baking paper to fit baking pans. Cut my photos. Slice my pizza. Chop up my instant noodles while they are cooking in the pot. De-bone my chicken. Shred cooked chicken. Cut dried fruit into small pieces for our cheese board.

Here’s the best way to get perfect strips of basil, mint or any leafy herb with a pair of kitchen scissors.

And it’s the perfect tool to open my bottle caps with with my tiny hands.

There are so many more uses I can list for our kitchen scissors. We work them real hard and used to break a pair every 6 months. Until a few months ago.

Yeap, we haven’t had a broken, dirty, worn out kitchen scissors ever since the kind folks at 3M sent me their Scotch™ Kitchen Scissors. They had sent me several items to test a few months ago and this was one item we absolutely loved.

It’s the highest quality scissors we’ve ever had in our kitchen. Those super tough electro-polished and corrosion-resistant blades are practically lethal! The blades are micro-serrated and super sharp and are perfect for delicate things like snipping herbs. Yet it’s also super strong for hard things like cardboard and tough flower stems.

The best part about them and why I highly recommend this kitchen tool is that the blades are detachable. BRILLIANT! If you don’t believe me on how important that is, go get your kitchen scissors and look at the amount of grime that accumulates at the joints of the blades. It’s disgusting, unhygienic and all that bacteria ends up in our food. Detachable blades means we can reduce bacteria breeding for better food safety!

They are also incredibly easy to wash. And when detached, they sit perfectly in my dish washer.

These scissors come in detachable and non-detachable versions. Get the detachable ones. You won’t regret it and you’ll be thanking me later for this.

3M is generously giving a pair of Scotch™ Premium Kitchen Scissors to up to 10 lucky readers of this blog! Each pair is worth SGD15.90.
