Product Review - EK Success Cutterpede Trimmer

Here we go - My first product review!  I don't know about you, but there's nothing worse than spending my hard earned money on a product that I end up hating.  I know a lot of the items I use in my crafting have been purchased through recommendations from friends or blogs I follow.  So....I thought I'd start sharing my take on the products I try and love...or hate!  (Just FYI - I am not being paid by EK Success for this review.  It's solely my opinion based on use of the product)

EK Success Cutterpede Trimmer
I am really picky about trimmers.  Over the years, I've bought several different kinds and this is the one I've stuck with.  It's fairly inexpensive and the replacement cutting channel mat and blades are a steal!  I know some folks prefer a straight blade over a rotary blade, but not me.  I find that on my Fiskars or Provo Craft trimmer the blade gets dull really quickly and starts leaving a rough edge on my paper.  This blade lasts a really long time and still cuts cleanly after a ton of use.  Also, you can replace the cutting channel mat (The white strip in the center) as it wears down and it will help keep the cuts smooth.

Here's the lowdown on this product:
  • It's Pink!!!
  • Rotary Blade
  • Replaceable cutting channel mat
  • Compact Design with swing out arm for larger paper
  • Easy to replace blades and mat
Here are some links to Amazon.com if you're interested in trying out this trimmer for yourself:

As much as I like this trimmer, I am always open to new products if they make my crafting life easier.  What type of trimmer do you use?  Have you tried this one and liked it or hated it?  I'd love to hear from you!
