OXO Good Grips Kitchen and Herb Scissors 5 "BEST SCISSORS EVER" Leonja 27 April 2018 These scissors are super sharp - and stay sharp. Excellent for cutting meat, poultry - anything at all. Apart from being very sharp, they are hygienic as they are easily taken apart so it’s just like washing two knives. They have been perfectly cleaned in a dishwasher many times. I keep one pair for food use and a second pair for non-food use. Lastly, they are very strong - I cannot imagine how they could be “broken” unless of course, the user isn’t aware that the scissors are designed to come apart!!
