• Sur La Table
I finally bought a pair of kitchen shears - and I can't believe how useful they've been. This well-priced pair of shears from Wusthof has helped me cut up a chicken, mince herbs, and snip bacon into lardons. The blades detach from each other quickly and easily for cleaning, and they're comfortable to hold. As a bonus, I just noticed that Wusthof has bundled them with their great little paring knife for the same price.
