How To Use Kitchen Shears

Chef Remi Kitchen Shears

Most of us having kitchen shears lurking somewhere in a kitchen cupboard. And yet, many of us don’t really think of kitchen shears as an ‘essential’. In fact, most people only have shears as they came in some sort of utensil pack, or part of a knife block set.

OK, fair enough, a good chef’s knife and a paring knife really will see you through most food preparation. But a good, heavy duty pair of kitchen shears can be an invaluable tool when you know how to use it correctly.

We’ve put together a step-by-step guide that will show you how versatile your kitchen shears are – you’ll soon wonder how you ever lived without them!

 

1) Cutting / snipping foods

Think about it. How much easier do you think it is to cut chicken breasts into bite size portions with kitchen shears instead of needing a cutting board and knife? You could even snip chicken directly into a saucepan or frying pan – no mess no fuss!

Then there are herbs, which you can also snip directly into a pan. Ever washed some cilantro and tried to chop it using a knife while it’s soggy? How much easier is this task when you can just snip directly into the pan?

Then there’s thing like trimming fat of meat. Unless you’re a real knife smith, using shears is far easier and more accurate.

The same goes for trimming or cutting pastry. It takes real knife skills not to ruin delicate pastry sheets. With a good pair of kitchen shears though, even an amateur can master cutting delicate shapes, or accurate trimming.

The key to great kitchen shears is ensuring you have micro-serrated edges on each of the blades. Normal blades can slip on food items. With micro-serration, your blades will cut without slipping, which means a safer, more accurate cutting experience.

 

2) Crack nuts / shells and sealed bottles

Most good kitchen shears will have a section in the middle, where the handles meet, that is serrated.

This is great for cracking nuts or shells (and much safer than using a knife!)

It’s also great for opening those tough, sealed bottles.

To ensure these tasks are comfortable, make sure you opt for kitchen shears with comfortable handles. Cracking nuts or opening sealed bottles can cause pain to hands and fingers if you have hard handles.

The Chef Remi Award Winning Kitchen Shears have ergonomically shaped handles, which cushion your palms and finger, whilst also being cleverly shaped so they can be used by both left and right handed people.

 

3) Easily open ‘pop top’ bottles

This is a handy function that not all kitchen shears have, and you’ll soon wonder why not!

Look for shears that have a pop top’ bottle opener built right into the blades. You’ll be amazed how often you will use this little tool in the kitchen when you need to open bottles or jars during cooking.

Jessica Brown said: Great spatula set!

This set of spatulas is very nice. Great quality, and I love that they are heat resistant! I would definitely recommend purchasing!

Shannon said: Great Basic for any kitchen!

Previously I had a hand held one and it made it so much more difficult to use! This is way easier to use and can stand upright on its own. It's a Basic you need in any kitchen and I have no complaints.

Ian said: Can't go wrong with these!

You can't go wrong with these tongs for the kitchen. It's great since they have the lever at the top that allows them to stay closed while in my kitchen drawer. Previous ones I had didn't and it was a nightmare just from how much space they would take up! Also, since they have silicon at the bottom it doesn't scratch my pans! Very happy!

Jeannie said: Wonderful press

This is such an awesome press!! It has cut my prep time in half. It is so easy to use and doesn't stick.

NA said: Grips well in the hand

Solid. It grips well in the hand.
