As with most life hacks, once I realized that kitchen scissors were a thing, I couldn’t imagine my life without them. But, it’s true, for the first 28 years of my life, I didn’t realize how wonderful kitchen scissors are.
So, when you buy a set of knives there is almost always a set of scissors with them. The scissors are great for opening packages. But did you know that you can also use them for food?
- Need to slice a pizza, but don’t want to damage your non-stick pan? Cut the slices with scissors.
- Want to add fresh herbs to your salad or other dish? Finely cut them with scissors.
- You don’t want your child to choke on grapes? Cut them in half with your kitchen scissors.
It’s crazy. You can use them for anything, and then, you can wash them in your dishwasher.
I hope this hack helps you as much as it’s helped me because kitchen scissors are SO handy when you realize just how much they time and hassle they can save you (especially if you’re not good with knives like I am.)
