Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Impressed!! After reading the comments others were writing I wanted to say. Do you think the maker of the product would invest that much time a money to put to market a product that broke every tile or could not cut it.I used this product on a commercial tile job with hundreds of cuts it never broke one tile. I was even able to trim 1/8 off with no break. It is a VCT tile cutter. You could be cutting a material it not designed or there is some operator error. I was very impressed with it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Does the job I use it for very thin tiles. So far has worked great and has given me no problems. Made the job much much easier. February 25, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't bother. Save your $50. Funny thing is that the store associate in the flooring department suggested not buying this--but I went ahead a did anyways--and she was right: this cutter is a piece of junk. You think it will do the trick of cutting your VCT tile, and it does--to a point. That point? The critical last inch of your tile--it shatters it instead. Every. Single. One. You are better off with a Stanley knife, a package of replacement blades, a metal straight edge and the weight of your knee and score it, and snap it. February 19, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Read this review... I spent some time reading (most of) the reviews on this product prior to purchasing it for a 12' x 12' kitchen floor tile installation. I also spoke with the flooring associate at The Home Depot and asked for her honest opinion on the cutter. She said personally she recommends it and she has used it frequently for vinyl tile and VCT. The combined effect of previously tiling a bathroom with resilient vinyl tile and having to make each cut with a fresh blade on my utility knife and the fact that I was going to be making a LARGE amount of cuts on this project was what sold me on this cutter. The main problem is seems people are having is that it doesn't fit the tile and it is binding on the cut part of the tile. Here are some tips to make sure you don't have the same problems. 1) Place the tile cutter on the floor and if possible screw it into either the floor or build a small base to hold it steady. The reason I say the floor is you need the leverage to get good cuts and to pull the blade all the way up. 2) Pull the blade up slowly the first few times and then once the cutter loosens up a bit you can get slightly more forceful in pulling the blade completely open. Once it is completely open you will easily be able to slide a full 12" tile in the opening. 3) When cutting tiles place the tile on the line to be cut and disregard the "built in tape measure" at the bottom, you shouldn't need to use that if you have marked your tile properly. 4) To cut the tile, push down on the cutter until it engages in the tile and then swiftly push down very hard. It will be loud, but you are cutting tile for crying out loud, but the cut will be straight and there is no binding or breaking of the tiles. If you can not push it down then simply use your fist to hit the flat red handle and it will push right through. Overall this is well worth the money! TIP: By the way, when you need to make cuts around corner and ANY cuts that are not just a straight line all the way across the tile, buy yourself some "Wiss MetalMaster Straight Aviation Snips" or any other brand for that matter (See below). You have to use some muscle to cut through the tiles, but it is about 1,000 times easier than using a blade and straight edge! Good luck and you are quite welcome! December 12, 2011
