The humble kitchen shears are an often underappreciated tool and many of us don't bother when a knife will do. This video from Bon Appetit however, showcases some surprisingly useful ways to use your kitchen tools to make food prep (and serving food) much easier.
Some of these will look familiar, like the old pizza cutting trick we've highlighted before, but some others are a bit more eye-opening.
For one, I don't know why I'd forgotten the old mum-in-the-kitchen trick of opening a can of tomatoes and using the shears to cut them up before you even pour them into the pan, or use them to de-vein prawns or cut bacon into small, easily cooked pieces.
They even use a pair of kitchen shears to get the meat out of a lobster, although it's arguably not necessary. Either way, check out the video above, or below at YouTube -- maybe you'll find something that will draw your kitchen shears out of the drawer and into more frequent use.
