Market Insight

Considering the size of the UK market, there were a relatively small amount of kitchen scissors for sale. Argos only stocked one pair on the day of our research, John Lewis five pairs and Tesco had around 25 different pairs of kitchen scissors.

As ever, Amazon makes it hard to tell exactly how many of a certain product it stocks – we would suggest around 60 pairs of dedicated kitchen scissors. (Searching at Amazon also brought up results for general purpose scissors, as well as dress making and crafting scissors).

We also omitted scissors that were described as kitchen shears –  these are a little more specialised than regular kitchen scissors.

The main manufacturers in this market are Victorinox, Oxo and Fiskars.

We found lots of great user reviews for the kitchen scissors that feature in this top 5. We were impressed by the high rating scores, especially considering the large number of reviews.
