Excellent Product
I absolutely love these! My husband bought these for me as a gift and they work perfectly. I make hot wings a lot and they cut right through the joints like a warm knife through butter. I was a little shocked at first when I saw how much they cost, but they're well worth it. I don't have to be nervous when I'm using a big knife anymore to cut up the wings and it goes so much more quickly. They feel like good quality too. They have a good weight and don't feel flimsy at all like some other shears I've used

They stink
I have owned them for years and am finally able to toss them out with the trash. Why? They do not spring back to the hand so cutting along a bird's back bone requires 2 hands to operate the scissors, and one or two more hands to manipulate the bird itself. Unfortunately, I only have 2 hands. Also, the nut and screw that connect the blades do not lock in place, so the shears now require constant tightening. Save your money.

Not so good
Not as sharp and bit ineffective in cutting raw chicken skin/fat...

Makes quick work of a whole chicken
I have ad these for about a year, and they continue to perform well. Love being able to easily spatchcock a chicken, or cut one into pieces with little effort,

Heavy duty, great brand name, and the texture handles
Judith B on Nov 13, 2018
I really like the Wusthof knives; they hold their edges without requiring sharpening for some time. So when I decided that I needed poultry shears, they were the obvious choice/brand to select.

i want to butterfly a turkey (14 pounds) will these sheers work for me?
A shopper on Nov 20, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, these could be used to butterfly a turkey.
Do these shears lock for easy storage?
A shopper on Nov 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: They lock however the screw becomes loose often and needs to be tightened. They cut very well and would purchase again.
Will they cut through lobster and crab shells?
A shopper on Oct 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Absolutely. These are excellent shears. I bought them for my husband who wanted to learn to spatchcock chickens. (They roast beautifully when you do that and we were tired of paying extra to have it done.) They make cutting through bone an easy task. We live in Maine so I am experienced with lobster and crab. You will have no problem. Enjoy!
do they seperate for cleaning?
A shopper on Feb 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No I don't believe they do, they are unlike a typical pair of kitchen simple scissors that are hinged and can come apart.
I will say I do like them a lot as they are curved, powerful to cut through tough parts of a bird, they are an adjunct to the other kitchen shears I have.
Are these dishwasher safe?

I wanted to be clear on this before deciding whether to purchase. Any additional feedback would be great; I am not finding the description (or lack of user reviews) very helpful.
A shopper on Mar 8, 2012
BEST ANSWER: You can put them in the dishwasher, however I wash mine by hand to prevent any rust forming on the screw that holds the blades together
I see they are made in China. Is the metal from China, too?
A shopper on Jun 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Do not know but probably is. Shears work fine.
How do you get the shears open, I can't seem to unscrew the latch by the thumb rest?
Mary E B on Oct 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Assuming you are right handed; To open shears squeeze the handles together and with the thumb of your right hand rotate the latch up to disengage the latch. If the latch does not move freely then the screw attaching the latch to the body of the shears may be too tight. Try loosening the screw with a flat head screwdriver. The latch should move with little effort. Good luck!
