Amazon.com Review

Known primarily for their well-crafted knives, Henckels also makes scissors and employs the same high-quality standards in their construction. This set includes five different pairs of scissors that cover a variety of household uses: standard 8-1/2-inch bent scissors for cutting paper or fabric, 8-inch kitchen shears for poultry or herbs (this pair also features a screw-cap opener between the handles), a6-inch straight trimmer for cutting hair or trimming beards, 6-inch flower shears for clipping rose stems or trimming house plants, and a pair of extra-sharp, pointed 4-inch embroidery scissors for sewing. Henckels uses the same high-carbon stainless steel for its scissor blades as for its knife blades to ensure durability and alonger-lasting sharp edge. The blades (except the flower shears) are held together with a screw that provides the perfect amount of tension and is removable so blades can be individually resharpened. Handles on all scissors are made of comfortable, nonslip, black polypropylene to reduce strain on hands. This set is fully guaranteed against defects in material and workmanship. --Cristina Vaamonde ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars These Scissors Are Cutting It Fine!
Wow! There are five different scissors for everyone who needs these. But I don't scissors, says one of friends. I tell him three reason to buy this Henckels International 5-Piece Scissors Set. 1.reason: - You have a very big paper ark, which have to divide many little pieces. Scissors saves your day! Use them and problem has forgotten!

2.reason: - Your fingertails are very long. Use a small scissors and your fingertails are comfortable short.

3. Your hair is very long and you don't have enough money for hairdresser' Don't worry! I can cut your hair but don't blame me if your new style is radical.

5-0 out of 5 stars Finally a great scissor set!
I had problems finding a pair of scissors when I was near the kitchen because every set got dull and rusty in no time at all. So I bought this set and am very delighted to see scissors that I can use no matter what room of the house I'm in.

The quality stainless steel construction will keep them from rusting and the kichen shears are so versatile that they do an awesome job of clipping coupons or cutting through the joints of a chicken and still ready to clip more coupons and gristle. It's taken me years to find a pair of scissors to do that!

Besides that, there are flower cutting shears, embroidery scissors and several other useful scissors in this quaility set. If you ever find yourself looking for a sharp set of scissors, do yourself a favor and buy this set! You'll be very glad you did!!

Was thrilled at the quality and cost of these five Henkel scissors. They from the start were a gift for my daughter and she is thrilled .. I now have put them on my birthday list ... want them for myself. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Works great, easy to clean
Wusthof's reputation for quality knives, coupled with easy cleaning, sold me on this kitchen shears.

Contrary to the description, no plastic cap or screw removal is involved... over the normal cutting range of motion, these function just like any other quality kitchen shears... but thanks to some very nice machining of the joint, they come apart if the blades are opened all the way to 90 degrees.

The bevel machined into the joint seems to clamp the blades together as the shears are reassembled, ensuring that the blades fit closely and cut well. The handle is comfortable and symmetrical, so it should fit left or right hand equally well.

Perhaps shears aren't quite so glamorous as forged knives, but this is a well thought-out product and well worth the price.

5-0 out of 5 stars everything I wanted!
These kitchen shears are everything I was looking for. They come a part for easier cleaning, which really comes in handy when I've cut into something sticky, and will also be nice when they need to be sharpened. And best of all, they're Wusthof, so I know they're the same quality as the knife set I have. I love them- and so did my Mom- I'm buying one for her for Xmas! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Terrific for cutting herbs and flowers!
I love these and use them all the time.

5-0 out of 5 stars I cried when I lost mine
And then went out and replaced them immediately. Say goodbye to aching hands and wrists, and to blisters from those rubbing scissor handles. These little snips work effortlessly and come in handy for so many things it's tempting to toss the regular scissors away.

5-0 out of 5 stars Herb Gardening
I received my pair of snips in a combination package, so I wasn't looking for them in particular. However, they have been irreplaceable in my herb garden...to cut leaves off the plant in the garden, then to take them with me to the kitchen to snip them for recipes!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great For Deadheading
I have found these snips to be great for deadheading.

1-0 out of 5 stars Way too small
This product was featured as Pruning Snips. When the package arrived, it was called "Floral Snip". It is the size of children's scissors and nowhere on the packaging is "Pruning" mentioned. Rather, "deadheading flowers", "flower gathering" and "houseplant care". I have returned them because I wanted pruning shears for my garden work. These were completely inappropriate for that task. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars These are great pruners.
My new Fiskars loop-handle pruners arrived today.I was attracted to these by the loop handle because I thought I could tie a cord to the loop, saving me a trip down the ladder to pick them up when I drop them.I was pleasantly surprised by the compactness of these pruners.They are very comfortable in my hand.They also do a very good job of snipping off branches up to about 3/8" in diameter.I managed to get through a larger (a little over 1/2" in diameter) branch, but it was hard work and seemed to stress the tool.I was pruning a plum tree, and the wood is pretty tough.Maybe on softer stuff they will easily get through the 3/4" branches as Fiskars says they will.Anyway, I am glad I bought them for the work I do. ...

Amazon.com Review

These ultrasharp kitchen shears are designed for just about anything in the kitchen, from cutting sprigs of herbs and the strings off a roast to heavier-duty tasks such as cutting thin meats. Fully forged from an ultrahigh-carbon stainless metal alloy, the shears feature molded-on black molten polymer handles for a nonslip grip. Made from a unique alloy called Trizor steel, the blades have a higher carbon content than other kitchen knives and shears, giving them a higher tensile strength, which makes them stronger and more resilient. The ultrasharp blades come out of the box 2 to 3 times sharper and last up to 10 times longer than those of other brands, but can be sharpened with conventional sharpeners. Molded-on handles are safe in the dishwasher, but hand washing is recommended to keep steel blades scratch free. --Doree Armstrong ... Read more

  • Dishwasher-safe, but hand washing preferred
  • 8-inch shears, great for general kitchen tasks

Balanced and powerful, these 10-inch shears have curved, high-carbon, stainless-steel blades for cutting apart poultry. One blade is notched to cut through bones easily. Handles are made of tough polypropylene and, for storage, they lock at their butt end with a short arm that swivels into place. The sturdy barrel spring between the blades ensures the blades move precisely. The blades themselves curve inward so they meet in only one place at any given position and cutting action is smooth and exact. For resharpening, the blades can be taken apart. Though they would go safely through a dishwasher, fine shears like this should be hand washed to protect the blades' edges. They carry a lifetime warranty against defects. --Fred Brack ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Many problems with Henckels shears
I'm on my second pair of these shears. The first pair was inherited when I got married, the second was a gift to replace the first (due to the plastic catch falling out and the blades rusting).

In less than one year, the second pair is almost unusable. The coil that is supposed to spring them back into the open position has lost its bounce due to rust inside the coil. The safety catch works too well - it catches automatically almost every time I close the shears. This is extremely annoying when clipping through a chicken breast. I have to stop on every other cut to re-open the shears. Finally, the shears cannot be separated for full cleaning.

NOTE that this model has a different catch mechanism, but the coil does look the same.

Designed specifically for the challenges of cutting chicken, duck, game hens, and pheasant, these poultry shears from Wüsthof offer excellent control while sparing your standard knives. The shears work for right- or left-handers, with curved handles and curved stainless-steel blades to deliver maximum leverage. A notch pocket in one of the blades lets you securely cut through bones, and the non-slip molded handle creates a secure grip. The blades come with a locking lever for storage and safety between uses. They measure 10 inches long. Washing by hand is recommended. --Emily Bedard ... 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

5-0 out of 5 stars Our Only Kitchen Shears
Unlike some folks, we just keep one pair of shears in the kitchen. We started with an ancient pair of Wiss sewing scissors which eventually got rusted and gunked up so bad that they wouldn't work anymore. Since we use shears in the kitchen for many different tasks (opening packages, snipping herbs, cutting up chicken), I was determined to find a pair that would be heavy-duty enough to cut through the tough stuff, be easy to clean, and hold a decent blade. A handy feature of this product not mentioned in any of the other reviews is a serrated bottle opener (kind of like pliers) located near the handles.
We've had these shears for a couple of years and they've met all of our criteria.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Kitchen Shears
These Wüsthof Grand Prix Kitchen Shears are an excellent addition to one's collection of quality knives and kitchen tools. I keep these kitchen scissors handy by storing them in a Wüsthof oak wooden slant knife block that has a special slot for them. I use them almost every day for household tasks - from opening plastic bags and cardboard boxes to cutting cheesecloth for making bouquet garni or waxed-paper rounds for lining cake tins. The handles are ergonomic, so that your hand doesn't get cramped when using them, and hygenic, so that they can be kept sanitized, since they're made from one piece of specially-molded plastic, which is the same plastic as the handles of Wüsthof Grand Prix knives. I wash my kitchen shears by hand, dry them immediately, and place them back in the knife block, so they stay relatively sharp in between professional sharpenings. They are made in Germany from the same high-carbon, no-stain steel as the Wüsthof Classic and Grand Prix lines of knives. The only drawback that I've found with these kitchen shears is that they are slightly bulky to use, as compared to Joyce Chen kitchen scissors, which I use for snipping herbs from the garden. The Joyce Chen scissors never seem to need sharpening, and they hold a keener edge than these shears. Also, I don't use these Wüsthof kitchen shears for cutting up poultry; I prefer using my J. A. Henckels chrome-plated poultry shears for that task. All in all, these kitchen shears are a good kitchen tool that will last a long time, and they are safe for use by older children, too. ...

Amazon.com Review

These all-purpose kitchen shears are a crucial kitchen tool for cutting delicate chicken bones, herbs, or even plastic food packaging. The blades are made of extra-hardened steel for long-lasting sharpness and are serrated to prevent them from slipping during cutting. The spring tension gives the shears excellent force and cutting results. These shears have a child lock to keep them from doing damage should they fall into the wrong hands and they easily disassemble for cleaning. For safety, the handle is made of non-slip plastic that provides a secure grip and is coated with UV protection to prevent it from ever yellowing. These shears are comfortable for either righties or lefties to use and are covered by Zyliss under a five-year warranty from the date of purchase. --Cristina Vaamonde ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

These powerful 8-inch shears balance nicely in the hand whether they're cutting food, flower stems, paper, twine, or cardboard. Blades curve inward so they meet in only one place at any given position, and cutting action is smooth and exact. One blade's serrations prevent slippage. A steel-tooth inset in the handle opens twist bottle caps, while a notch in one blade pops off bottle caps. The shears are dishwasher safe. --Fred Brack ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great little addition to my kitchen!
I am very pleased with my Sabatier Kitchen Shears. It gives a whole new angle to cutting. Really. I use these shears on pizza, herbs, chicken, to make beef strips, just about everything. I seem to have a little more control with shears than I have with knives. It may just be my way of doing things but I think they are great.

My kitchen is loaded with gadgets but sometimes you just need something that gets right to the point (no pun intended).

5-0 out of 5 stars the only kitchen scissors you'll ever need
A pair of these scissors came with a set of Sabatier knives that I ordered, and I liked them so much that I bought a second pair separately. They are easy to use, easy to clean, and easy to store. The high quality of the construction ensures that they will last for years, and I find the design to be ergonomically suited to the hand as well as pleasing to the eye.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not Durable, Low End Sabatier
As part of purchasing multiple Sabatier knife sets over the years I've come to own two pairs of these shares.

They are decent low end shears, mass produced in China. I am surprised these shears are getting such great reviews. I was AMAZED someone was using them to cut food, but I've since learned for delicate herbs such as fresh chives, this is actually recommended. Still, these are kitchen shears not poultry shears. I don't reach for these shears when food is involved.

I keep a pair in a kitchen drawer and use them for "light duty" jobs such as cutting off basil or thyme leaves. I can't imagine using these shears to open a bottle since mine have visibly bent from light duty.

Low end shears by Henkels International will last much longer AND many of their shears can be taken apart and sharpened.

These shears are made of the same medium quality steel Sabatier uses for their Chinese knife sets and this steel will rust if left wet of if food remains on the blade.

Of course, you should always hand wash and dry knives and kitchen shears but these will rust more easily than the high end German and French steel products (which cost much more of course).

You'd be better off with one of the higher end shears sold on Amazon. ...

2-0 out of 5 stars It cuts well but has rusted!
It cuts well as I expected but has rusted in one month!
I would not buy this again. My brother bought a shears ... and it works fine. No rust until now.

4-0 out of 5 stars How did I live without??
I love my kitchen shears... Now I don't know if there are those others that are better (probably), but these do the job nicely. I use these for cutting fat off my mean and cutting up herbs mostly... Unfortunately mine is broken now, but I think that has to do more with the fact that others in my household have chosen to use this for non-food prep purposes (cutting paper, boxes etc). I am going to get a new one as the price is good and I know this one works. ... Read more
