3M Scotch Premium Kitchen Scissors

Recently while sourcing for some kitchen utensils I saw these NEW 3M Scotch Kitchen Scissors at one of the FairPrice Xtra hypermarkets. And base on the description from the packaging it seemed that these scissors are made using high quality Stainless Steel and electro-polished blades to resist corrosion as well as for easily cleaned and thus reducing the risk of bacteria growth.

But as you can see the prices of these premium scissors are slightly higher compared to those that we often purchase which is perhaps less than S$8.00. So with such thought I decide to do a survey on facebook (read more HERE) and ask for suggestions and feedback  from those who had bought or current using these scissors.

And so coincident, just a couple of weeks back I also received these two scissors as sample for selected household homemakers to try out these products.  These Kitchen Scissors comes in two different designs and functions such as - detachable, shown on the left photo above (S$19.90 with GST) and non-detachable (S$15.90 with GST).

As you can see from the above photos, the Scotch Kitchen Scissors is ergonomically designed with a symmetrical shape for comfortable cutting and shearing compared to the rest of the scissors shown. Their soft and comfort handle make it great for those who has bigger palm as well as provide handy grips on the handle for both left and right handed.

For your information these 3M’s Scotch Kitchen Scissors’ used Japan-made JFE SUS420J2 Stainless Steel that is treated using 3M’s unique electro-polishing process for superior smoothness in comparison to generic stainless steel. The metal’s polished coat not only results in a higher tassle and increased hardness, but also enhances the material’s ability to resist corrosion.

From the above photo you can see the comparison result whereby one of the Scotch Kitchen Scissors is put to test together with another 3 different brands of kitchen scissors on 3 weeks daily kitchen chores experiments.  To my surprised, the cutting blades for the Scotch Kitchen Scissors still remains new and shiny compared to the other three pairs with corrosion blades.

The micro-serration blades of these Scotch Kitchen Scissors also add an extra level of sharpness, so the device is strong enough to cut through meat and bones and yet delicate enough to snip fresh herbs and fruits. Furthermore, the detachable blades of the scissor also makes it easy cleaning and quick drying, thus allowing for longer-lasting hygiene and durability.

So I guess it is still quite worth to invest in a pair of durable kitchen scissors whereby it will served multi-purpose from cutting to snipping chores in the kitchen. Example like the photo shown above, you can easily use the Scissors to cut both raw and cooked poultry instead of the old method on using chopper and chopping board.
