These are like the "swiss army knife" of sissors. The do just about anything you need in the kitchen. There is a part for peeling, scraping, scaling, and cutting. It has a bottle opener, a shell opener, and so much more. The case it comes in has a large, strong magnet on it, so you can hand it on your refrigerator or other metal appliances and it's easy to find. They are very heavy too, so well worth the price for so many tools.
