Special Note – These are the best value in shears on the market right now and today they are also on sale at 20% off if you get the gray vs. orange ones. I don’t see the point of paying more on an item like this over the color of the handles.
Every day I bring you an item on Amazon that I personally use or has been purchased by many members of the audience and I have researched enough to recommend.
Today’s TSP Amazon Item of the day is one of my favorite kitchen tools, kitchen shears. Here is the issue, my past recommendation was RedYetiWare Shears but they were discontinued, so I now have gone back to my old favorite, Fiskars 7in Take-Apart Shears. These are great quality shears, excellent steel, very sharp and they hold and edge well.
Once you have a good quality pair of shears the next thing you want to look for is can you take them apart and do they stay together during regular use. These do that and I am not sure why but so many others that come apart by design also come apart during use. I mean it really isn’t that hard to make a pair that stays together during use but I guess Chinese chop shops can’t figure it out.
Fiskars makes great quality stuff and always has, while they manufacture some things in China, as many do, they maintain stiff quality controls and offer a lifetime guarantee on these shears. And at about 15 bucks a pair a set belongs in your kitchen if you don’t already have great shears.
Let’t talk about the take apart feature though and why it is a must have for me. I use my shears to do things like cut up veggies but I also use them to break down a chicken, these things will take a back bone out of a chicken as though it had a zipper. So do you want chicken skank on your veggies? I sure as heck don’t! And to me the only way to be sure they are fully clean is to be able to take them apart.
One piece of advice. While the shears themselves are stainless and hence won’t rust unless truly abused, the screw that holds them together is not. Hence it can rust. I simply put a bit of oil on mine when cleaning them, which is good for performance anyway. Just use whatever oils you cook with, I generally put a dab of olive oil on mine and call it a day.
So if you don’t have a set of quality shears in your kitchen pick up a set of Fiskars 7in Take-Apart Shears at around 15 bucks and change with free shipping they are a hell of a deal and as of 9-6-23 right now they are on sale under 12 bucks.
