Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by imo Worked great for me
I bought this to use on a glass tile project. I was a little worried because it was priced quite a bit lower than the other cutters. This is probably not quite professional grade but should be fine for occasional projects. It's solidly built and cut the glass tile straight and clean. It's a little hard lining up the cutter exactly on your cut line. I have not tried it on any other tile. I suspect it would be fine for ceramic, maybe not porcelain. Keep in mind that this will handle 12" max tile.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by johhnyk4 Failed with first tile
My older tile cutter finally gave out, but I needed to cut only two 12" tiles, so I thought I'd go with the inexpensive option. It did not cut the first tile. The base is too flimsy to support cutting, and bends upwards at the ends. It appeared to be made of a synthetic, rather than metal material.I had a scored tile but no cut. I returned for a refund. Ended up using a diamond Dremel blade to cut the two tiles.

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 4.0 out of 5.0 by Anastasia Great - light-weight and works very well
Works well, very light-weight. I just wish it bit longer so I can cut 16" tiles too. When you push to crack the tiles after make line, whole thing popping up a bit, because base thin and kind of flexible, but it does cut the tiles, and very good. I'm very surprised by how easy to cut tiles with this cutter.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ital0001 Simple tool, but maybe better for small tile
I purchased this tile cutter for cutting 12" x 12" porcelain floor tiles. I successfully cut the first tile right on the scored line, but I wasted many more tiles trying to repeat the process. After the first tile, I could not get a straight cut. When I attempted to snap the tile, the cut line typically deviated from the score line at least half way across the tile. Maybe this tool would work better for smaller tiles. For my project, I returned this tile cutter and instead rented a tile saw.

This cutter does exactly what it is supposed to do. I'm using it to cut 8" wide planks.
It is sharp and cuts well. The nature of this on porcelain tiles is that it makes the smallest chips where he cut/scratch is. A wet saw will leave less of an edge, but here there is no waste and quick !

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Srhtemple Broke first time used!
We used it for cutting ceramic backsplash for our kitchen.. Worked well until the 3rd tile we cut then it broke! Not worth buying. I would recommend renting or putting your money into a wet saw.
