One of my bridal shower gifts (8 years ago now!) was this pair of Fiskars take-apart kitchen scissors from my mom. It's no wonder these scissors have such great reviews on Amazon.com -- they really are wonderful! I use mine multiple times each week, and they are so handy.
A few of my favorite uses:
I cut all of my homemade pizza and my Italian Cheese Bread into slices with my kitchen scissors! I originally started doing this because the pizza cutter would ruin a non-stick pizza pan or baking sheet. The kitchen scissors is easier to cut through a crispy crust, as well.
And after I've cut the pizza in the pan, I cut my toddler's pizza into bite-sized pieces with the scissors! :)
It's also the fastest way to cut spaghetti so that it ends up (mostly) in my child's mouth rather than on the table, floor, and his shirt! ;) (I know someone else mentioned this recently in a kitchen tip post -- if you're reading, remind me of your link!)
Other foods I like to cut with my scissors include leftover chicken meat (for casseroles) and fresh herbs! You can read Donna's kitchen scissors tips here.
