Housewares Wrap-Up: Mastrad's Orka Shears
April 10, 2010,
Orka Multi Purpose Kitchen Shears do more than traditional cutting--though they do that as well.
Designed to handle a number of kitchen chores at one item, these shears can also be used as a nutcracker or a can/bottle opener. The blades also come apart so the chef can use one as a knife for thin slices or as a vegetable peeler. And when not in use, the shears can be placed in a case that can be placed on the refrigerator, so they are never far away or lost in a drawer.
Available in May, they are made of INOX, TRP and polypropylene. In a trendy purple and black colorway, they will retail for $12.
Cracking nuts is only one of the many chores the new Multi Purpose Kitchen Scissors can handle in the kitchen. mastrad.us
