Any Way You Slice It

everyday items that are a joy to use

When I first set out as a young adult, I had to buy a bath mat. At the time this bummed me out, since this was such a boring purchase. I’d rather have spent my hard-earned money on something fun like makeup or going out, not something dull like a mat for the bathroom floor. 

What I’ve learned since is I can get pleasure purchasing something functional and necessary. Now I approach the need for necessities by challenging myself to find the best quality at the most reasonable cost. 

Scissors are something we use every day, and most of us don’t give them much thought. That’s changed for me since I discovered Slice Products Large Scissors. I never thought I could be a fan of something as simple as a pair of scissors! 

Slice’s scissors have an innovative and lightweight design that is so comfortable to hold. The finger grips fit securely in your hand, and the blades cut through paper and cardboard with ease. Speaking of the blades: they’re ceramic, so they won’t rust. With their rounded tips, they’re engineered to be safer than traditional scissors. The ceramic blades are up to 11 times longer-lasting than steel varieties. The scissors are free of BPA, phthalate, and lead. These scissors can be used in the kitchen or garden, or with craft projects, and the bold white and orange colors make them easy to find in a drawer.

Being a fan of the scissors, I decided to give Slice Products Manual Mini Cutter a try. This oval-shaped cutter fits comfortably in the palm of my hand. It has a textured sliding safety button that doesn’t need to be held in for the blade to function. The long-lasting, rustproof zirconium oxide blade effortlessly slices through cardboard boxes, layers of packing tape, plastic wrap, and even plastic cable ties. The blade can be reversed in its orientation, so the cutter works just as well for lefties. Its magnetic design sticks to the fridge, so it can always be within reach.

Any way you slice it, Slice Products made my boring tasks more fun!

The Large Scissors retail for $39.99. The Manual Mini Cutter retails for $9.99.
