A tip if you are having problems with this device
on March 8, 2013
I hadn't read the reviews on this product before I ordered it from the TV commercial. And, I'm REALLY GLAD I hadn't because I might not have ordered it. I ordered 2 sets receiving 5 devices and I, too, had some problems with several of the devices particularly when foil was inserted. But, I took a close look at what was happening and realized the foil was "bonding" with the cutting blade. So, I just brushed some mineral oil (which I use on my butcher block) on the blade. Solved the problem very satisfactorily. So, I love the device .. all 5 of them.
And, for those who complained they couldn't find a wrap that would fit into the unit, what in the world are you buying!!??!! The spring-loaded end inserts fit my Reynolds aluminum wrap and my Glad Cling-Free perfectly. They do not fit my Glad Press N Seal and I didn't expect them to .. that wrap has its own delivery system.
I haven't had any trouble with the unit moving around when I use it. I suspect the mineral oil trick makes the cutting action smoother thus requiring less muscle and therefore making it remain in place.
So, I'm sorry those who were dissatisfied with the device didn't persevere and try the mineral oil solution. I suspect they were pessimistic buyers who expected the product to not live up to the advertisement. I love mine.
