Amazon.com Review

The sharp, stainless-steel blades of these all-purpose scissors are suitable for cutting paper, flower stems, and taking on many other kitchen chores in between. The scissors' locking mechanism helps ensure safety. The Good Grips line features durable, nonslip flexible handles on every product. Ergonomically designed to fit the palm comfortably and softly, the pressure-absorbing processed rubber handle puts less tension on the hands, while providing an outstanding grip. Made from the same material as dishwasher gaskets are constructed of, the handles are slip-proof, wet or dry, as well asdishwasher-safe. Good Grips products are moderately priced and have won the Tylenol/Arthritis Foundation Design Award. --Laurie Notaro ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars I have re-evaluated my review after a year
I bought these scissors for myself and liked them so much that I bought more for bridal showers. They make a nice gift when paired with the OXO soft handled vegetable peeler.They are easy to use, comfortable to hold and nice and sharp. The locking mechanism is handy as well. The price is very reasonable. However after a year, I am having a problem with the spring that is key to the scissors periodically falling out. I have to put the scissors down and replace it. So I have lowered my rating to 2 stars. The vegetable peeler still rates 5 stars.

4-0 out of 5 stars Nice addition to the kitchen
For years I used a "regular" pair of scissors. They worked, but I really wasn't happy with them. Then I got bitten by the OXO bug and I am replacing EVERY thing I can with OXO stuff! So, my latest step was to replace the scissors....great idea. Love them. Love the "feel" of them in my hand. Cut great and store in my knife holding block. I am a happy camper.

1-0 out of 5 stars They Come Apart
I have never been able to use these. On the first try the two halves split apart. Unlike the previous reviewer, mine will not hold tegether long enough for use. I keep trying to fix them but to no avail. Very disappointing as the handles are well made. It's a pity they just don't work.

2-0 out of 5 stars Only worthwhile if you have arthritis.
This pair of scissors is mediocre at best. I can see it's value for those with arthritic hands, with the easy to grasp, spring loaded handles.

The pair I had was very poorly put together. The spring which keeps the scissors open kept dislodging and flying across the room. The nut and bolt holding the blades together would also come undone intermittently. I fixed the problem by melting the plastic around the spring, permanently fixing it into place and by tightenign the bolts.

My advice is to spend a little more money and get a pair of Henckels scissors, which are much sturdier. The blades also can be separated for easy cleaning (there are no nuts and bolts to become loose either).

1-0 out of 5 stars Loose screw
I received these shears as a gift. Shortly after the first use, the shears came apart. I looked in the drawer and found all the pieces and reassembled the shears. The middle screw is loose and doesn't completely tighten. Every time before I use the shears, I have to tighten the screw. After one time in the dishwasher, the metal spring was rusted. I'm shopping for new shears. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

These swivel scissors work with such ease and comfort that anyone canappreciate them, including those with arthritic hands. The upper handle, of softrubber, swivels during cutting. A lightly wound spring automatically opens theblades after each closing. The result is greatly reduced effort and smoothaction. The rubber upper handle doesn't slip when wet, and for added stability,the hard-plastic lower handle encircles the lower fingers. For storage andsafety, the blades shut with the push of a button. Overall, the scissors are9-1/2 inches long with 3-1/2-inch stainless-steel blades. Use these versatilescissors to trim foods and flowers, snip twine and string, and cut paper andcardboard. --Fred Brack ... Read more
