A Cut Above
THERE IS always prep work in the kitchen, something to snip or cut. No, No, No, it is not a good thing to use your paper cutting or hair trimming scissors on chicken, meat, salad, or recipe ingredients. Investing in good kitchen shears is a must. In our opinion, kitchen shears make the cut!
Kuhn Rikon Swiss designed shears put stylish "fun" in functional. Cutting up beef, slicing through chicken bones, and opening those tough plastic food packages become easier tasks with razor sharp blades. These shears have ergonomic handles, and come in a variety of bright colors, a plus for the kosher home.
- Blades come apart for quick, easy cleaning
- Includes an herb stripper and flowerstem cutter
- Dishwasher safe
- Yellow, Blue, Green, Red, Black
- Size is 8½"L x 3¼" W.
Price: $15.95 per pair

At the recent Atlanta AmericasMart Gift Show, a kitchenware showroom rep brought this item to our attention. She said it was selling like "hot cakes"! We have tried many gadgets that mince or press garlic and, naturally, we were eager to try this one. Winner of six industry awards, The Garlic Twist, by NexTrend Products, will make mincing garlic easier than ever. Based on a cross–cutting design, it is quick and easy to use and minces anything from garlic and ginger to nuts and olives into fine pieces, all without waste. Use the bottom of the container to smash the cloves to loosen the skin, then place the peeled cloves into the container. The Garlic Twist fits into the palm of your hand and, using a back and forth twisting motion, just twist it and mince the garlic to the desired texture. A very handy kitchen tool – and multipurpose too!
- Available in clear, green and purple
- Made of durable polycarbonate
- Easy and fun to use
- Controls mincing for coarse to fine textures
- Multipurpose– try ginger, olive, chili pepper, onion, herbs, nuts and more!
- Smple to clean – just rinse; and dishwasher safe
- Made in USA
- Lifetime warranty for durability

Ready to start making crêpes? OK – so you can call them blintzes!
