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.

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.

This thing is too lightweight to work correctly. I'm only cutting 6" tiles and after scoring I go to snap the tile and the whole base will flex to the point that I can't get the tile to snap. Planning to return this and buy one with a better base.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by InspiredDIYer Handy, inexpensive tile cutter
Simple to use and cost effective for basic straight cuts. I used it on 12x12 porcelain tile and it was a breeze to use and gave me clean cuts.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by katastitcher product made all the difference in doing my project
The tile cutter that i purchased came with no instructions so as a first time user it was a little confusing at first, once i got the gist of it my project went so much faster than trying to hand cut all the tiles and the smoother finished edge achieved by the cutter made all the difference in the world!

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 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!
