Things I love Thursday- Kitchen Scissors

Its Thursday! That means only 1 day until Friday, The Office, and of course, Things I Love Thursday from The Diaper Diaries!
This week I will share my love of kitchen scissors. I have always enjoyed using kitchen scissors. They are great for just about anything cooking related. I open bags, puncture seals, and even trim the fat off meat! They are so much easier to use when chunking raw meat for stir fry. I will never use a knife for cutting up meat again! But as a mom, I have found new and glorious reasons for why I love my kitchen shears. They cut pizza like a charm- without making the cheese fall of. You can do a quick 'snip snip' in the bowl of pasta thats just a little too large for little mouths. You can cut those pancakes or any other food item into bite size pieces in just seconds! I have tried the pizza cutter thing, but I found it to be a pain unless I was using it on a completely flat surface. Scissors know no boundries!
I have two pairs of scissors that are often washed multiple times a day. One pair is a pretty typical pair that came with a knife set or something. It works well for most food and projects. When I need to do something a little more heavy duty or when working with raw meats, I love to use my Chicago Cutlery shears . They are super sharp, high quality, and the blades come apart! This way I can give them a real good washing and disenfecting after cutting the raw chicken! And they are so affordable! (amazon currently has them for 7.99!)
Kitchen scissors are a must have for any cook, especially if you name is Mom.
Go over to The Diaper Diaries for more Things I Love Thursdays.
*FYI, I'm not paid or asked to endorsed any product. These are ones that work for me and that I love. No reinbursment here! Just my own happiness!

Amen! I love my kitchen scissors as well. I use them for pizza, salads, anything that needs to be cut up.

Happy TILT!

I would appreciate it if you would help me spread the word on my giveaway. It is for cloth diapers handmade here in the USA by a WAHM.

I broke my kitchen scissors and I really miss them. Thanks for the reminder that I have to get another one. They are so useful, especially when I cut up Chicken.
