“Our newest product: scissors for cutting herbs!”
A voice from the back challenges the engineer. “That… doesn’t sound very innovative.”
The engineer frowns, before a wicked gleam appears in his eyes. He puffs his chest and clicks the projector to the next slide.
“These scissors have FIVE blades!”
The room falls silent, and all eyes swivel between the image on the screen and the engineer. What sorcery is this? Why did they hire the guy from Gillette® whose idea of razor improvement meant adding more blades? Is it lunchtime?
…I digress. While a bit strange; obviously this idea got past that conference room and into production, so just how good of an investment are the Happy To Go Herbal Scissors?
In terms of scissors construction, the HTGHS feel about the same as a decent pair of standard scissors that you would use for cutting paper. The handles are coated with a tough vinyl/rubber that makes them comfortable to hold and use. The blades are lightweight enough so as to give the whole product a balanced grip while chopping up herbs, but overall the construction is heavier than a pair of economical kitchen shears. In terms of being put together well, the HTGHS has solid rivets and opens/closes without any sticking or misaligned blades. That being said, I did notice something unusual with the blades.
I included the picture of this below that hopefully shows clearly my point: the sharp edges are not even in terms of their length along the blade. You can see where the grinding wheel stopped on each blade, so that each has a different cutting length; they are not even identical on the same blade, so that either side has a longer or shorter sharp edge. Fortunately, in terms of usability for cutting up herbs there is minimal impact. Aesthetically, however, it does give the HTGHS a slightly unrefined appearance.
The HTGHS make quick work of a bundle of herbs used as a chiffonade, and for roughly chopping cilantro when I make my large batches of salsa. They are sharp enough to cut through even slightly-thick stacks/groups of herbs, and with the included stiff cleaning brush, they are simple enough to clean as long as you do so fairly soon after you are finished using them. The brush is actually plastic, and while it does work loose clumps or thicker chunks between the blades, smaller pieces of leaves can adhere to the metal and will require a good soak in hot, soapy water to remove if not cleaned out properly.
The HTGHS are also good for other soft things, including hard-boiled eggs, fresh pastas, avocado, and the like. Anything that is especially sticky (such as sticky doughs or spongy cake) are not meant for these, and will both clog up the blades and mutilate whatever you are attempting to cut up. The other side of this issue is that the HTGHS will not be easily sharpened. It does appear that a hex key will enable you to disassemble the blades, however, it would probably be more trouble than it is worth. As a result, once these become dull, you will most likely want to purchase a new pair rather than attempting a dissection.
If you are looking for a set of shears that will help you to cut five ribbons of a chiffonade in the span of time that you could cut one with a normal pair of shears, then the Happy To Go Herb Scissors are a worthwhile purchase. Ideally, this is a product that is best utilized if you find yourself coarsely chopping large amounts of herbs frequently; you can chomp through a large bunch of parsley, for instance, much quicker than using a knife for it (especially if you are not formally trained and/or lack speed with your knifework). Conversely, you can also use these for quick garnish, without having to cut, dice, scrape, and plate. Simply hold the herbs over the dish, snip, snip, snip, and voila: the finishing touch.
As a go-to item, however, it really depends upon the amount of cooking that you do and the types of ingredients that you utilize. As a fast way to prepare some herbs, the HTGHS are a good investment, and definitely helpful if you have arthritis in your hands and cannot grip a knife. That said, if you use fresh herbs rarely, you probably want to stick with something that is less specialized. My final say? 4 stars of 5.
