The packaging is top notch! The gift set comes in a silver box needing only a bow to make it ready to give as a shower gift or friend's special birthday. Each scoop comes in its own blue velvet bag. . . It's an item that is definitely a cut above other brands you can find at Bed, Bath and Beyond or other retail stores.
I am a handyman / mechanic. I've built and repaired aircraft, cars, boats, and houses. When I buy something, I want it to work. Fit and function count. Style is secondary. This scoop (and who would've thought I'd want to buy a scoop) is an across the board winner. It works. It fits my hand nicely, and it does what it is supposed to do - it scoops, it delivers, and it cleans up easily. But - my wife says the solid stainless steel (which I tested to make sure it meets my standards) utensil is very nice looking. Who am I to contest her opinion?
I'm an avid grower of herbs and vegetables, but when it comes to using the resulting harvests in the kitchen, the tedium of prep-work/chopping sometimes sends me to the spice cabinet to find something dried and ready to use. With the addition of these scissors to my kitchen gadget arsenal, I believe these lazy habits will change.The scissors made VERY quick work of my first 'test herbs' - oregano, chives and rosemary. Best of all, clean-up was super quick and easy. They are a perfect inexpensive gift idea for gardeners and cooks
