This week’s Must Have Monday is inspired by my time in South Korea. It is…
A pair of scissors or kitchen shears.
You may question the use of scissors in the kitchen but they truly make prep time quicker and easier. In Seoul, I saw scissors mainly used to cut grilled meat, which worked great, but I have found it has many more uses. Here are the items I use to cut scissors with:
- Raw bacon, pancetta, or prosciutto
- Herbs (chives work especially well)
- Slicing a quesadilla
- Trimming fat off meat
- Dicing up dried fruit
- Slicing a pizza
- Breaking up whole canned tomatoes
- Romaine lettuce for salads
On Amazon, the prices for kitchen shears range from $10-$15. I use regular scissors which work just fine.
