Poultry Shears 1 "Better in the garden than the kitchen" Mrs Haynes 07 February 2013 Seemingly strong and up to the job, trying to cut through raw chicken is a nightmare. The handles are smooth - and quickly become so slick that it is impossible to apply pressure. I spent an unhappy time this morning trying to portion and de-bone three chickens today. Back to the old kitchen scissors, methinks. "Shears" are now destined for the garden as secateurs! A note from the team Thanks for placing your review. We're sorry the shears haven't been as expected. We'll be in touch shortly to help.
