Key Features

Rubber handles

We want to point out that this affordable product has very comfortable handles. Shears usually have somewhat uncomfortable handles. Why? We are not quite sure, but it is a fact that the manufacturers sometimes don’t pay too much attention to the comfort of the handles. KitchenAid classic shears have comfortable handles made from rubber. Moreover, they are suitable both for left-handed and right-handed users. The rubber is durable and won’t wear over time.

Functional

These are classic shears that are not an extremely versatile, state-of-the-art product (we don’t even expect it with respect to the price), but they certainly are functional. They’re good for packaging opening, cutting herbs, paper, meat, and even soft poultry bones.

Dishwasher safe

As the handles are made from rubber and the blades are corrosion-resistant, you can safely wash these shears in the dishwasher. You don’t have to worry about rust nor any other type of damage. This is especially important as you have to pay attention to the hygiene of the shears because they will probably occasionally come into contact with the meat as well.

Micro-serrations

We were surprised to notice that these shears have quality micro-serrations on the blades. This is a feature we usually associate with somewhat more expensive shears. As a result, you can use them for precise, detailed cutting.

Quality blades

The blades measure 3.25 inches. They’re made from stainless steel and are rust-proof. The blades are very sharp and precise thanks to the above-mentioned micro-serrations.

  • Sharp
  • Precise
  • Comfortable
  • Made from stainless steel
  • Dishwasher-safe
