How To Use Herb Scissors

2

Chef Remi Herb Scissors

Who doesn’t love fresh herbs? The dried stuff is just nowhere near as good. Why? It’s the oils in fresh herbs that give them a distinctive smell and flavor.

With delicate aromas, such as parsley, I sometimes wonder whether to even bother with the dried stuff – you can barely tell it’s even in a dish!

Use fresh parsley, and you immediately notice that it’s there. However, if you’re like me, and not exactly a pro in the kitchen, mincing herbs to add to a dish or salad is time consuming and a bit of a chore.

That’s until I discovered someone had invented herb scissors.

Now, like most of you, I’m sure you’ve worked out that kitchen shears do a fantastic job of cutting up herbs, directly into a skillet or salad bowl, without the need for a knife and cutting board.

And they are great for mincing up small amounts. But the great thing about herb scissors is how you can mince up lots of herbs in seconds!

The Chef Remi Herb Scissors have 5 blades – it’s like cutting up five times as much herbs as using single blade kitchen shears!

Here’s My Tips On Getting The Most Out Of Your Herb Scissors:

Chef Remi Herb Scissors

1) Make sure your herbs are semi-dry to dry.

Wet herbs are difficult to handle at any time, whether you are using herb scissors, shears or the old knife and cutting board, especially when you have soft leaves, such as cilantro.

A great tip is to wash herbs and then leave them to dry for a while before attempting to cut. Or, if you don’t have lots of time, use a salad spinner to wring out as much moisture as possible

 

2) Bunch up leaves before cutting

Again, this is the same when using a knife. Bunched up leaves give the blades something more firm to work on, and you also get the most herbs cut in the shortest amount of time.

Also, bunching up leaves allow you to bruise them slightly. You want to bruise herbs so that the oils can come out and add more flavor to your dish.

 

3) Cut with stainless steel blades

Carbon steel blades can turn herbs brown. This doesn’t affect flavor, but from a presentation point of view, I like my herbs to look green and fresh!

Razor sharp stainless steel blades will cut right through herbs without discoloring.

 

4) Bring the blades together completely with each snip

Make sure you compress the handles until they come together for each snip you make, so you ensure the blades have cut through completely – you don’t want large pieces of herbs left over.

Opt for herb scissors with handles made from thermoplastic rubber. I’ve found these are the most comfortable to grip, and also have a moisture-resistant finish, so I can cut effectively even with wet hands or slippery fingers.

Since getting my herb scissors, I don’t even bother with dried herbs – It’s so simple mincing fresh herbs directly into a skillet, bowl or even on top of a finished dish!

I love these scissors! First off they are solidly made and super sharp, definitely worth their price. But most importantly: They have made a difference in my cooking! Using fresh herbs has now become a breeze, since cutting the herbs now only takes a fraction of the time it used to take, and the result are uniformly sized pieces! My dishes look and taste much better now, because I am using more fresh herbs more often. Thank you, Chef Remi!

Natasha said: Functional, great size, even dishwasher safe!

I seriously CANNOT say enough good things about these tongs! Where to begin....they are heat resistant up to 600 degrees, which is awesome because I am known to melt a lot of my cookware (or use metal cookware, thus scratching my pans). They are dishwasher safe, which is awesome. The sizes are great and they're super functional, but honestly I think the best part is the little button at the top, which you pull up on to close them. I HATE how a lot of tongs stay open, taking up so much room in the silverware drawer--no worries with that here! And to top it off, they even come with a lifetime warranty! This is my first Chef Remi purchase--I will definitely be back for more!

John said: Bad can opener

This can opener opened a few cans then broke. Tried to contact customer service, no luck. Back to Wal-Mart $2.00 tool, much better.

Stefani Main said: Awesome thermometer

This thermometer works awesome. Easy to use and easy to read. Also love it comes with a cap for when you aren't using it!

Lisa Pope said: Love these tongs

This is a great set of tongs, I love that you set a set of two and that they are reasonable priced. They are very comfortable in my hand an are easy to maneuver while grabbing food. The rubber is high quality and like never having to worry about scratching my pans or them melting. They clean up great just with soap and water or in my dishwasher. The best part is the locking tab so they save space and are easy to carry around. I am thinking of buying more of these as house warming presents.

Sima Levin said: The best products

I am using a lot of Chef Remi products. All of them really good. The last is Kitchen sturdy shears. It is a
Multyfunctional thing. A cut the whole chicken with them, opened beer and cracked nuts. Cut plastic covers and more. They looked nice too. Recommend to everybody !
