A dedicated cutting tool for mint and other herbs may sound like an unnecessary luxury or gimmick – doesn’t a knife do the job just as well? If you are very adept at fine chopping then yes, of course it might. However if you like to use lots of fresh herbs in your cooking then a cutting tool for mint and other herbs can come in very handy, saving time and offering a neat, uniform result while minimising injuries caused by clumsy fingers. If you suffer from motor control issues handy gadgets such as a mint cutter can make it much easier for you to continue your culinary efforts in safety and without being restricted by your condition. Wares of Knutsford offers a couple of handy options.
