At first I loved this product. However, the grid pattern wore off within months of use. Then the plastic guard the blade runs along broke. They do not sell this piece to replace it with and once it's broken the cutter is useless. So, I bought another one last month and guess what just happened...yep, you guessed it the plastic guard on this one just broke! I am going to contact Memory Makers and see how they handle this. For the price of this cutter--this should NOT HAPPEN!
