Yes, I own a Cuisinart Food Processor (actually, a Robot-Coupe, which is the precursor). No, I do NOT use it very much.
I am here to sing the praises of kitchen shears, a tool underutilized in these United States. These first came on my radar a few years ago. Frugal Son had come back from a summer in South Korea, where he stayed with the relatives of friends. He told me to get some shears. He said everyone used them for cutting scallions and bacon. You can cut right into the pot!
Eventually, I bought some at Goodwill for $1 (I later discovered you could buy the same exact ones "at retail" for $2). I kept forgetting to use them. Finally, I cut some scallions. Great!
Today, I put them to the ultimate test. I cut some bacon into a pan. Greater! No icky fatty cutting board to wash.
I told Frugal Son that I had really junky shears and should probably get some more befitting my status as serious (sometimes) cook. He pointed out that the many shears he saw in use in Korea were probably of the same quality as the ones I had.
Do you use kitchen shears? Am I the last person to get with the kitchen shears program?
Should I get some snazzier ones? Like these red ones?
