I am looking to get a new cutter, more specifically a rotary cutter. I would love some opinions from you all.

Which one you have? Which you have heard is the best out there? Which one would you recommend?

Thank you so much!!!!!

I personally love my Fiskars Rotary Trimmer. It's wonderful. However, it is big and awkward and it doesn't fit well in my scrapbooking tote. So it makes it annoying since I go to crops so often. I have a large rolling tote from Hobby Lobby, and the shoulder bag from Totally cool or however they spell it.

I have the Fiskars Desktop Rotary trimmer, and while it cuts beautifully, I am not completely happy with it. It was quite expensive and I wish I had held out for the MM one.

My main beef with it is that it is not 12 inches wide/long. It doesn't even have an arm that swings out to help you measure up to 12 inches, and many less expensive models have at least a swinging arm. I think it's only 8 inches wide or long, which means any cut for sizes wider/longer than that and you're going to have to either measure and mark your paper, or calculate. And who wants to do math while you're scrapping?

I wrote a pretty detailed review of it if you're interested.
my review

edited to add: it IS pretty light-weight and smaller than the MM one which I think is quite heavy, so if you want it for crops you might be happy with it.

I have a Carl and I love it! I have had cutters from Cutterpede, Fiskars etc, but not are as good or as sturdy as the Carl. It cuts through heavy things like chipbaord and multiple sheets at once, never seems to go askew either.
