I was recently sent two really cool, fun, and very useful kitchen tools to review. They’re both available at Useful Things – but be warned before you visit the site, it is addictive. You know the aisles in your favorite department stores where they put inexpensive but wonderful gadgets, tools, unique gifts, and so on?
That’s exactly what Useful Things reminds me of. Inexpensive fun? What part of that isn’t off the charts?!
I cook a lot (a whole lot!) with herbs. Like all obsessive cooks, I grow my own herbs and use them faithfully. Yet, you know something strange? These are the first herb scissors I’ve ever had. Big DUH on me! I’d always used regular, run-of-the-mill scissors (and had the audacity to wonder why they didn’t perform as crisply as I wanted them to). The 5 blades on these herb scissors, simply put, make magic happen.
Since getting them, I’ve used them on cilantro, parsley, basil, oregano, green onions, and (a frequent guest at our table) chives. You can quickly create uniform-sized herb garnishes for your dishes without the hassle of dragging out the cutting board. Simply stand over the plate, pot, or bowl and snip away. I love that they come with their own little blade cover – makes it much safer to retrieve them from the kitchen gadget drawer. Even an overly-caffeinated, accident prone, airhead like me can’t possibly hurt herself when a blade cover’s involved.
Here’s something else I love: These herb scissors cost less than $10!
Snip the herbs you need quickly, neatly, and right where you want with our Herb Scissors. The unusual blade design features a set of 5 sharp 3″ stainless steel blades that allow you to cut, chop or mince herbs directly into a pan or over a plate for garnishing. The large plastic handles have a soft silicone lining for the most comfortable grip. 7.5″ long overall and dishwasher safe.

I’ll tell you about the other really cool kitchen gadget tomorrow – the scissors kind of wanted exclusivity with this post. I thought they made a good point. (Sorry, couldn’t resist.)
