Salad Scissors are very odd-looking kitchen shears. They’re pretty big, spring-loaded, with multiple blades that are curved so you can use them in a bowl. You are supposed to put your lettuce and tomatoes and whatever in the bowl and make chopped salad with these shears.
First problem—they don’t open very wide, so you have a hard time getting them around anything bigger than a leaf of romaine lettuce. When trying to use them on a tomato, no dice. Or iceberg lettuce; it’s just chewing it up. The food looks terrible.
Even if your knife skills are horrible, you can cut better and faster than this. For $24, these scissors are a silly gadget.
