Temp-tations Old World Set of 2 Locking Shears by Kuhn Rikon
Nice addition to my kitchen. Catch your eye quickly in the drawer with their colorful handles and work very well.
Great Blades, Terrible Locking Design
I was thrilled when Tara teamed up with Kuhn Rikon to "Temptation-ize" their awesome shears! As I love both separately, together I figured they would be even better! Well... I'm sad to say, I'm disappointed! I LOVE the original locking feature on K.R.'s shears. They way the Temptations versions are designed, with the little plastic locking feature at the bottom of the handle is a poor design! Once you get it open, using 2 hands, instead of one, like on the original design, the blades are a dream! They cut just about EVERYTHING! BUT.... That's as long as the locking feature doesn't fall into the closed position while the shears are open! This seems to happen about 97% of the time. When this happens, it keeps the shears from closing completely, thus not cutting the item completely that you're in the middle of working with! You then have to put down the item, open the plastic locking piece, (pray it doesn't close again) and finish cutting your item! Now, I love the OW Temptations design, just wish they would have kept the original locking feature!
LOVE LOVE LOVE
I love these scissors! They are super sharp and so easy to use...and, they match my "Temptations" kitchen :-)
I love Kuhn Rikon. I use these shears inside and outside. They seem to cut thru just about anything, This is a new style and I'm not thrilled with the locking mechanism, but love them anyway.
Design eventually rubs off
If you're buying these to match your temptations cookware - DON'T- the design eventually rubs off, especially if you're using them in the kitchen. Also, the blades on the pair I am using in the kitchen get stuck no matter how much I've cleaned them. Very disappointed - they worked great and looked good in the beginning.
Expensive, but nice.
You are definitely paying a premium to have these shears look like your Temp-tations collection. However, that being said, they work nicely and look great!
I received these as a gift about 8 months ago and was skeptical. I have to say these are the most amazing shears ever! The haven't dulled at all and we use them for anything you can imagine. We use one for meat and the other for household use and no matter what we cut we can not get them to dull. We will be picking up more of these just in case they discontinue them. EXCELLENT PRODUCT...NEVER DISCONTINUE!
So useful and cute
Got them in black. Love these for the kitchen drawer. I like that they have a lock. They are very sharp
The best kitchen shears that I have ever owned. Would not be without them. I am partial to Old World Brown and love them.
Love! Use these constantly! More than I thought I would and they have not dulled or needed sharpened. Wash in dishwasher like a dream! Great product!
Did not like
There just not want they say. I found them hard to work. Just not up to the quality.
Lovely and Sharp
Great shears!! I also have the old ones from Kuhn Rikon with the sheaths, but I like these much better since they are much easier on the hands. They are easier to use. So functional and pretty. Love that temptations has partnered with Kuhn Rikon. Hope to see more partnered products.
