Kitchen shears are a very versatile tool that should be a part of any aspiring chef's arsenal.  And there is a pair out there for every budget. Whether you're looking for a modern, sleek version or something a bit more old school, you can find a pair of kitchen shears that are right for you. Here are a few uses for your new pair:

Snip herbs directly into dishes

Cut off pointy tips of artichokes

Cut off ends of green beans

Cut cooked noodles and pasta into bite sized pieces

Trim fat off meat

Debone chicken

Cut cheese cloth and parchment paper into easy to use pieces

Trim flowers before putting them into a vase

Cut dough into shapes

Moms, what do you use your kitchen scissors for?

I use them to cut up boneless chicken (instead of using a knife).

I don't have any kitchen shears, but sometimes it sure would come in handy.  I think I may need to invest in one!

I mostly use mine for clipping coupons and cutting packages open.
