Poultry Shears

can anyone recommend a good make.

i really want to spatchcock a chicken, but my knife skills not that great. And my scissors not quiet strong enough.

Been looking on amazon, but getting confused.

thanks

Spatchcocking

Hi Sam, if you aren't going to make a habit of spatchcocking the chickens, why not ask your butcher to take out the backbone (you can always use it for stock), open the bird out and whack it on its breastbone. I bought a sturdy pair of multi use scissors from Lakeland which I find does the job quite well.

Poultry Shears

My first pair cost 8 pounds but fell apart after 1 use. I took those back & paid the extra & bought Zyliss - cost 12 quid or so, but worth every penny.

They are tough, easy to use as they have a sort of spring thing to add the force, the blades lock when not in use (like garden shears) and they take fully apart for cleaning.

On Amazon they are 12.17 at present but are called 'Zyliss All Purpose Shears, Black and White'

Poultry shears

I have had the Wusthof kitchen shears for 10 years and can highly recommend them as all round kitchen scissors- they make light work of cutting up a chicken or turkey and they come apart for easy cleaning. you wont be dissappointed

Scissors

I got my mother a pair of Ernest Wright kitchen scissors a few years ago and she loves them.

I suppose they might be a fraction on the heavy side but they feel comfortable, balanced and cut well.

They aren't the cheapest (her pair costs £40 now) but they are a quality hand made (in Sheffield) product which I think should last for years.

They do also make poultry shears.
