Every kitchen needs a good pair of kitchen shears. With OXO, known for their comfortable grips and effortless utility, a good pair becomes a great value.
These scissors have a few unique features that set it apart.
First of all, the scissor blades are micro-serrated. This allows for a more precise cut, as well as a secure grip and less slipping. Plus, they’re made from hardened stainless steel, so they’ll withstand aggressive cutting jobs.
Secondly, the shears come with a handy herb stripper between the grip. It’s intended to quickly remove fresh herbs from difficult stems.
Also, as with any OXO product, you’ve got the comfortable Good Grips handles on your side. They’re designed to minimize pressure and cushion your grip so your hands don’t hurt after spending all day in the kitchen.
Compare these shears to the Wusthof Come Apart Shears we reviewed recently. Those have a jar opener instead of an herb scissors and are about five bucks more expensive than the Oxo.
You really should wash these Oxo scissors by hand and not throw them in the dishwasher. If that’s okay with you, these are a very good value.
