Product Review - Scotch™ Premium Kitchen Scissors

~ Posted on Thursday, August 2, 2012 at 9:10 AM ~

I came across this tweet message looking for Malay bloggers to review kitchen tool products and as a Malaysian, this is one step easier to pitch for products to review since Malay means most likely the PR or sponsor is in Malaysia! Anyway, I replied the Tweet asking whether they are OK with Chinese bloggers as well, and to my surprise, I received a reply saying mummy bloggers all welcome and we continued our communication via emails and the rest is history!

I received 2 pairs of scissors for my review: one for kitchen use, and the other for children's use, which you can read my rave reviews here. So here goes my final review of the "Scotch™ Premium Kitchen Scissors":

Description from the product page:
"3M’s new Scotch™ premium kitchen scissors are produced from Japanese-made stainless steel which has been treated using 3M’s unique electro-polishing process for superior smoothness in comparison to generic stainless steel. This means there are fewer ridges and rough spots on the blade surface, which can trap food residue and breed bacteria. It also enhances the material’s ability to resist corrosion.

3M’s unique electro-polishing process makes Scotch™ premium kitchen scissors more hygienic for safer food preparation which is really important to everyone. The micro-serrated blades also add on an extra level of sharpness, making it easier for everyone to cut through meat and bones or to snip fresh herbs and fruits! Many of us take great care in preparing quality food for our family, so tools that aid in safe and hygienic food preparation are always welcomed by Malaysians.

With the Scotch™ premium kitchen scissors, slicing, trimming, and shaping food is simply a breeze! It’s time to get creative in the kitchen as it’s now so simple to shape food into fun images to whet the appetites of the little ones or to impress the guests. For greater agility and to get things done faster, you no longer have to worry about using a cutting board. Using a pair of high quality kitchen scissors can give you a great time cutting your way through vegetables, meat and anything else your recipe calls for."

Honestly, when I saw this scissors, I told my MIL and hubby "OK, you guys go ahead and try this scissors out then just before you want to use, call me, I want to take pictures for my blog review!" - I have to be honest, I was skeptical at using scissors to cut meat! I mean, hellooooo, scissors?!!!!

So yeah, I told myself let others be guinea pigs ngek ngek ngek... But it sat there unused as MIL forgotten about it and hubby was too busy with his work, so I decided to try it out myself as I have to submit my honest feedback in my blog for you guys to read!!!!

Now before I go ahead, I just want to share my opinion on this scissors. It is quite heavy but not that heavy that you need two hands to hold it, when I said heavy I'm actually comparing it to normal scissors hahaha... I love the sturdy grip on the handles, the solid materials of the handles and I'm impressed that there is not many ridges on the blades as this will mean less food will be trapped in the blades.

And you see the rounded ridges between the 2 handles? That is a multifunction feature where you can use the scissors to open bottles! Cool eh?

How I tried out this scissors? I had to wait for our next grocery shopping (every fortnight) and once I got hold of my chicken meats (I planned to use some for roasting and some for frying), I wash the chicken meats, also wash the scissors as well. Then I muttered a prayer hoping that this is going to work and started sniping gently.

To my absolute surprise, the meat cuts off ever so gently! I was amazed at what I saw! The chicken meat just fell off easily as I snip and snip and snip. I got all excited and I think that's how my 3 year old felt too when he realised he could easily cut papers with his Kids scissors!

The scissors is magnificent! I even try cutting by few milimeters just to see whether it is good enough to cut small amount of meat and yes, works wonderfully! So good and excited I was that I took the scissors, the chicken meat I was holding and the container storing the cut meats and demonstrated it to my MIL.

She too went 'Whoaaaa... that was easy! Next time can use scissors to cut meat!' So people, this scissors is MIL approved too! Hehehehe!!

I tried with fish the next day and it cuts smoothly as ever. So so so easy!

My verdict of this scissors? No doubts about it, this scissors pack a punch and YES, it cuts meat like a scissors cut papers! Smooth and easy! Love love love it!

I didn't know "Scotch" produce scissors too. I have a pair almost like the one you have. Someone gave it to me many years ago. It was from S'pore. Had been using it almost everyday. Still sharp after so many years. This sure comes in handy.
