Top Customer Reviews
The scissors come apart and back together for easy cleanup, but not so easily that they are always falling apart. It is spring-assisted, so it opens right up after cutting, without your needing to work in both directions. The spring assist is neither too tight nor too loose. I love the small lock in the handle: it keeps the blades closed and is immediately accessible to unlock with one hand as soon as I pick up the scissors. I don't use mine for meats, so I can't weigh in on that. They are very good for herbs, salads, and veggies you want to cut right into the pot. There is a notch in the base of the blades for small branches (or bones for meat-eaters). One of the blades has a serrated edge when that is needed, and there is a nifty little box cutter in the bottom of the round handle. The grey parts of the handle are a soft rubbery texture that is easy to grip, even with wet hands.
Upshot is, it has everything I was looking for except maybe an herb stripper. Plus, Zyliss has great customer service, so I'm not worried about getting any mishaps resolved should anything come up during the three-year warranty period. Definitely recommend.
The eye-appeal is about the only thing Swiss about these snippers. They're made in China and feel like it. I'd rather pay a little more for Swiss manufacturing.
So I purchased the Zyliss Herb Scissors exclusively for harvesting from my Aerogarden, and am pleased beyond expectations. They are extremely sharp and make quick work of cutting stems. They are small enough for very tiny spaces, and since they have no tension spring, I have complete control of my cuts. They're a fine tool for snipping small amounts of fresh herbs, but not the only tool I use. I may chop up herbs on a cutting board or in my blender, if I have large amounts.
Where the inside edges of the handles meet, there are semi-circular cut-outs. If you need to strip leaves, place the stems between the handles, close the handles, and pull the stems. They work just like wire strippers!
I can wash and dry them in seconds using liquid dish detergent and a microfiber towel. After months of use, I've not had any herb parts get stuck to or in the scissors, nor do they show any signs of corrosion or dulling. They come with a cap to protect the blades and your fingers. Keep them away from children; I cannot emphasize how sharp the blades are.
By the way, I wash my hands before I touch my Aerogarden or any tools I use with it. If I touch anything else, I wash my hands again. The same with my tools for our safety. We eat the stuff from the Aerogarden, and take precautions to not infect it with nasty bacteria.
And with all that washing, these scissors still look and perform like new. Well worth the investment!
