This pill cutter by Duro-Med is a mixed bag. While it splits smaller circular pills very well; it doesn't do quite as good a job on larger, rectangular shaped "horse pills" or very large pills. I am really sorry to read that other reviewers had trouble with this pill cutter; but I can understand why.

I use this primarily for cutting smaller, rounded pills in half. For this purpose, this pill cutter is bound to do a very good job. On the other hand, large pills may be cumbersome to fit into that tiny wedge before you press down on the plastic top to cut the pill into two haves.

On the bright side, the plastic is well constructed and this pill cutter has lasted me a good while.

If you want a high quality pill splitter or a pill crusher, you will need to look elsewhere. I admit that this pill cutter is an entry level type of device.

I purchased this product and threw it away after the first cut. It did not cut the pill in half but rather in 1/3 and 2/3 pieces.

I have owned pill cutters for over 5 years and the current one that I have is getting dull. So I thought I should purchase a new one. Now, I learned my lesson. Buying a $5 product is easier to return and exchange at a pharmacy, than doing it online. The return postage alone will cost as much as the product.

I am sure some of these cutters are designed right and will cut the pills in half, but mine didn't ... so it's hit and miss with this product.

I am writing about pill cutters in general-not about any one particular model or style.
For those of you who like them please carry on. For those who don't like them or who can't find one they are comfortable with here is a bit of advice..whether you are human or a human with a pet....I have a small dog who has allergies so I have to cut her allergy medicine into quarters...was having an awful time with a knife or sheet rock cutter or whatever..nothing seemed to work without crushing the pill therefore wasting a lot....soooo one day I decided to try her nail clippers to cut the pills...well, to my amazement it worked wonderfully! Most pet owners have nail clippers right! Now there is a dual purpose--nail clipper & pill cutter. I use the guillotine type..make sure the blade is sharp & cut those pills with ease and no more pills bouncing off the walls!!!

Don't bother buying this pill cutter if you want to cut the pill in equal parts. The blade on the cutter is off-center, so when you cut the pill you get pieces that are about one-third and two-thirds. Definitely not useful and it is going in the trash since it is not worth sending back to Amazon for a refund. If you need a pill cutter, look at Drugstore.com and they have one for about $4 that is properly aligned and will cut your pills in equal pieces. The Drugstore.com pill cutter has a guide in the center that the blade has to fit through to work, so you know it is always aligned properly. The Amazon pill cutter does not and is just a blade with no guide. I have to cut a pill into eight pieces for my cat, so I can attest to the pill cutter on Drugstore.com working as it should.
