Gela 5-Bladed Herb Scissors

While traditionalists in the kitchen typically prefer to chop herbs with a good old fashioned chef’s knife, there are other ways to get the job done more efficiently and without having to practice knife skills. A pair of 5-bladed herb scissors like these makes quick work of slicing basil, parsley, chives, cilantro, and any other herb you like cooking with.

These particular herb scissors come in 3 colorways, each for about $19 on Amazon:
