Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by irz813 Broke after ripping 2 tiles
This product is garbage, at least for 3/8" thick ceramic tile. The marking edge causes small chips in the clear top layer of the tile. The lever itself i semi-useful - only for the ripping. If you attempt to break the tile in 2, the metal bars that run across the top just bend upward applying no pressure to the tile. My first break i was able to just hit one side of the tile hard enough for it to go. The second cut was of a partial piece and i could not get the leverage to break in the same manner as the first. I used the handle and "Y" to attempt to make the break. The tile split into quarters instead of half and the plastic "Y" broke off completely. Refund, here I come.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by thatguy The right tool for the job.
I think the tool works great, but you have to understand how to use it. My other tool for cutting tile is an angle grinder, which sucks. I'm cutting 6*24 tile and with a few passes of the cutter it snaps a nice clean line on the 6" side. However you cannot use the included press break foot. Every attempt did not provide a clean break. You need to cut at least 3" off the end and use both hands to forcefully press the sides. This has worked every time for me.
It is cheap and makes cutting the tile very fast and clean. It's important that your expectations are in line with the capabilities of the tool.
I don't know how it would work with larger tiles, I'm sure it would require much more force to snap, I'm already pushing fairly hard.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rich I Thought It Was Junk But....
While doing a budget tiling job on my shower I found this tool at a bargain price. The first 10 cuts or so went as expected with a few broken 12" tiles do to a learning curve, but then it started breaking every tile even after trying multiple scores.
After searching for a better unit and thinking that either the scoring wheel had dulled or the frame was bent I came across an article saying the scoring wheels sometimes stick and to use WD40. Well, mine was sticking and a little WD40 was definitely the cure. So if your tile cutter starts breaking tiles in strange patterns make certain you check the scoring wheel for easy rotation, it can save you loads of headaches!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by taokarate Glass cutting made easy
I bought this to cut glass tiles even after the HD Associate told me I would need a wet saw with a diamond blade(upwards of $200). I read online that this would work. I am happy I bought it! it was so easy to cut the glass without any chipping or breaking. This was for a backsplash in my kitchen.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Grandma Good basic tool
First time to install ceramic tile. Room size is 135 square feet. Ceramic tile cutter was very easy to use. Instructions on box could of been better. Cutter did good job on all cuts except very thin cuts (less than one inch). Whenever I tried to make thin cuts the tile cracked. Would recommend this tool to other customers.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sarah2 works perfectly for my backsplash tile
I was really afraid to try cutting the tile. my backsplash is made of glass & metal tiles. the metal we are cutting with a table saw. the glass tiles current great on this tile cutter. I watched a YouTube video and just scored and then used the handle to break tiles where they were scored.
