The 3 blades are different distances from the cutting track, so you have a little bit of range with the size of the circle you're cutting. Like when you're matting a photo, you want two different sizes.
Another CM circle cutter fan here. Bought mine in 1999. I didn't realize they had a large one! Sooooo tempting....
I still use my little old colluzzle. It's limiting on the size but if i'm wanting something cut in a certain area on a photo or paper I use it and if it just needs to be any old circle I use my cricut.
I have the circles, and some tags and an alphabet set.
Takes some getting use to but i'm not bad with the circles and tags. But I haven't used it in a year cause I don't cut my photos into shapes anymore.
I got the info from Liz and will order as soon as I know if I will be here next week or two so I can take the order. Husband is talking about a flight to Hawaii tomorrow but I don't think we are going to try for it. The flight is 18 hours and that is way too long for Hawaii!
I've been scrapbooking for over 10 years and have tried several different ways to cut circles. I have the CM circle cutter system with the original circles and that works great. But then I invested in the Nestability nested dies and found that I use them the most. I have four sets of circles and ovals - the large and the small and the scalloped edge circles and ovals for nesting. I use my Big Kick with the dies.

You do need a consultant, unless the office changed something and didn't inform me :). You can order from a consultant online (provided your consultant offers online ordering, which I do), but all orders go through a consultant. (Really, the president of the company needed to order some stuff when he was new, and he had to pick a consultant!)
Thanks OHio mom but Liz has already contact me and I'm really comfortable ordering from her.
We didn't go to Hawaii today (so glad, so much I want to do here for a few more days - would rather wait until next month for Hawaii) so I will go ahead and place my order after I come back from lunch.
I'm going to get the 3 blade set, the large circle, the oval and the set of smaller circles.
I have them all except the large oval - didn't think I'd use it really
I didn't know they sold the larger oval (thought it was a gift for buying so much). Many years ago I got it and have used it to make cut-out mats for a large pictures(8x10), and also used the cut out part for a huge easter-egg background. You're right though, not alot of uses for the larger oval. I use all the CM cutting templates regularly and always take them to crops.
