Coolest Kitchen Gadget Ever

I went all the way to Paris to find this 5-bladed kitchen scissors, not realizing I could have bought it online.  But Paris is a lot more enticing than the computer in my office.  I always stop by E. Dehillerin, a French kitchen equipment store with hundreds of knives, whisks, cookware and copper pots filling its first floor and basement.  I’m never disappointed.  

I didn’t know I needed these exotic scissors to cut parsley, basil and cilantro, but now I can’t live without them.  There is even a cleaning device built into the plastic case so you don’t slice open your fingers trying to remove leftover bits of greenery.

  1. You're so right about it being one of those things you don't realize that you need until you've seen it. All I can think about now is how much easier it would be to trim from my collection of potted herbs with this thing. Just hold your hand underneath and snip a little, and you're ready to spice up your cooking!
