Multifunction Kitchen Shears
Let me start out by saying if you are planning on using all the tools that this includes as your only version of these tools then you might be disappointed because they are meant more to be an on demand use rather than your one and only version of that tool with the exception being the scissors themselves.
That being said, I plan on using these in my camper which is the perfect place for them. If you have a small kitchen and don’t need some of these tools very often then these might be a good fit for you.
These are basically the swiss army knife of kitchen shears. It is to the point that you almost forget they are actually scissors because they do so much more.
I have rather small hands and I didn’t find these particularly comfortable to use but my husband likes them because his hands are huge. Since I would be using these just as kitchen shears it doesn’t bother me that much that they aren’t the most comfortable scissors ever because I won’t be using them for long periods of time.
Since scissors are only one of the tools on these I feel like I have only begun to scratch the surface of what these can do. I tested the knife and felt like it could have been a little sharper but I like my knives very sharp so I’m pretty picky about that sort of thing, this will certainly do the job depending on what you’re cutting.
I used the nut cracker and was able to crack an almond (I didn’t have success with a different almond but I wasn’t able to crack that one with my actual nut cracker either). If you watch the video part of my review you will see that I was trying my hardest to crack that nut so that is a testament to the strength of these, or a testament to how weak I am. 🙂
I don’t have a fish handy to scale, I’ve actually never scaled a fish so I’m not the person to tell you how well that works. I have no doubts that the screwdriver will work, the wrench will work depending on what size nut you are trying to use it on. The wire stripper looks very similar to my actual wire stripper so I can’t see any reason that wouldn’t work but since I don’t have any wires handy that is just speculation.
Once camping season starts and I start using these more I’m sure I will find other things to note about these and I’ll be sure to update my Amazon review if I do. For now they will certainly do what I need them to do and take up very little space in my camper. Actually if you’re wondering how big these are they are 7.5″L x 3.75″W. The handles are 2.5″L x 1″ (these are inside measurements).
I will keep testing these kitchen shears out and try to use everything I can on them but because these do so much that could take a while.
