I purchased this trimmer from the Superstore as my main every-use trimmer. It's amazing! I can trim the tiniest sliver off of a piece of paper and it's still straight! I love that it folds up so I can take it with me to crops! I also love that it'll fold out to a full 12x12 size! That really helps when I'm trying to trim a 12x12 sheet of paper! I can get it measured and cut very accurately!
I did have a problem with the ruler that came with my trimmer. The magnetic backing was peeling off the plastic ruler. I contacted Making Memories and in 3 weeks I had a new ruler and a couple extra goodies as an apology for the inconvenience! Great customer service from this company!!!
I had two different Fiskar Trimmers. Both developed a "hook" at the end of my cut. The only way I could get a decent cut was to go slow and pull it towards me.
This MM Trimmer is by far the best trimmer I have ever used. From the tinniest sliver of paper to the biggest cut. Towards me, away from me, fast or slow....I get a perfect cut every time. I love that I can use it folded or laid out flat. And the magnetic ruler, wow that definately has some holding power! If you lose anything metal off your desk, check the back of your trimmer it is probably there! If this trimmer were to break tomorrow, I would not hesitate to buy another MM Trimmer.
This trimmer is truly terrific-it cuts straight everytime! It is easy to use. It has a magnetic ruler that holds your paper in place, so no slipping! It cuts the smallest sliver of paper. It is a rotary cutter with self-sharpening blades, so you don't have to worry about buying replacement blades. There are cutting marks on the trimmer with common sizes that you would typically use, so that makes it easy to work with. The only drawback that I can see is, that, although it folds up, it is too big to fit in my bag. Other than that, this really is worth the money!
This trimmer came highly recommended to me by my fellow board mates on this site. I waited forever to get it (had to save up) but to me... the wait was more than worth it! I have used Fiskars trimmers (the cheapo flimsy ones), the ProvoCraft Zision trimmer and the Cutterpede. Out of all of those, wowzer! This baby cut a piece that was literally like a strand of hair. It was THAT small! I have not had any issues with it at all and I don't foresee that I will have any! A great product that is well worth the investment!!
I just purchased this trimmer, and it is the BEST trimmer I have ever used. I gave up on my Fiskars trimmers because they don’t cut perfect and the blades get dull fast. The best feature on the Making Memories trimmer is that the blade is self sharpening!!! Love that it folds for portable and easy transfer and the quality is just amazing! It cuts with such precision each and every time! BUT you do have to make sure you line up the paper properly when you open the fold!
I highly recommend this product!
