Do you have herb scissors in your kitchen? I’m going to guess not. You probably cut your basil with a standard pair of shears or even a knife. But is that the best option? These herb scissors promise to snip your spices at a rate 5 times faster than other methods. And considering they are on sale for under $10, there doesn’t seem to be any reason not to try them out.
Want to know if they work? Check out J. Byrne’s review, titled “Tamed my spinach, and all herbs should be very afraid of this, lol.”:
Ok, these are pretty cool. I dont’ have a garden or fresh herbs right now, so I was chomping at the bit for a chance to use them and see how they work – then we had homemade pizza night and I got out the fresh spinach, and I thought ‘aha! I’ll slice up the spinach instead of dropping a handful right onto cheese…’ and wow, it was nice. I just sliced right through big piles of spinach, making nice, placeable slices and pieces to use on the pizza. The best part for this spinach lover is, I was able to put a lot more spinach on since once it was sliced, it was so much more manageable and placeable that I just kept piling it on. If you do that with the leaves the just kind of fly off, drop off, fall over. BEWARE: I remembered one reader’s caution not to instinctively use your finger to brush the produce off of the blades – don’t cut your finger, user the green cover, that’s what it is designed for. Can’t wait to get my garden growing and use this for other herbs. In the meantime, fresh spinach will be shown no mercy!
I probably would not spend $60 on what amounts to a pair of scissors. But $9? No doubt.
