I'm a huge fan of kitchen shears. I use them to snip herbs, cut chicken into chunks, and open cheese and prosciutto packages. I find them very handy and employ them on a regular basis. When I asked YumSugar if she loved her shears as much as I love mine, she said, "I don't have them and don't get the point of them." Now I'm asking you: Do you have kitchen shears? Are they an essential tool in your kitchen or do they sit untouched in a crowded drawer?
