  •   Great Product
By on
Pros : This glass cutter was much easier to use than the first one I purchased (a simple one from Home Depot). It was decently easy to get a straight cut working by myself and it was still working great for >40 bottles. The price is also really good.
Cons : Cutting bottles is much harder than cutting flat glass (I've done some stained glass work before) and, even with this tool, expect many of your bottles to crack in strange places. Not really a criticism of this product, which I thought worked pretty great, but just so you're aware if you're buying it to cut bottles...

  •   Takes Practice
By on
Pros : Cuts the bottles just the way I want them and in the right place. Worth the price. I have gotten it to cut any bottle of any size and shape.
Cons : Takes a lot of practice.
Other Thoughts : Sometimes, it DOES feel like you need more hands to operate it, but once you get the hang of it, and place everything where the DIRECTIONS say to, it's pretty simple.

  •   Waste of Money
By on
Pros : Could not think of any
Cons : This contraption is difficult to manuver when trying to cut a bottle. You need more than 3 hands to work it. Don't waste your money on this buy the other table top version instead.

  •   Almost didn't buy one
By on
Pros : Simple to use, it works! Lots of cutting blades. All the parts look pretty sturdy to me.
Cons : none - I have no complaints but this is the only bottle cutter I have ever used.
Other Thoughts : I almost did not purchase this cutter after reading the reviews online. I bought it; watched the FREE online video and commenced to trying it out. My first bottle was epic fail! But - I was impatient and was just tapping (banging) away on the bottle. All I got was a jagged edge and various runs. I don't think I got a good score either. The second cut (same bottle) I let the bottle sit and then plunged it in a cold water bath. Failed again. Then I decided to heat it up one more time. Ran out of time though and just put it under the cold water in the sink and the score ran. So now - with a new bottle - I let it heat up in the hot water, run it under cold running water and then back in the hot water. Comes right off nice and clean. Did it three more times just to make sure.

  •   Great Bottle Cutter!
By on
Pros : Makes beautiful cuts and is easy to adjust for size. I like the fact that the actual cutter has multiple blades to use when one gets dull.
Cons : It is a little awkward when first using it, but for the money it is well worth the effort to learn to handle it correctly.
Other Thoughts : I would like an interchangeable top or adapter for wider bottles. I did get it to work by using the metal lid and nailing a hole in the center, but that is not always possible.

  •   Just use a Dremel
By on
Pros : Does a perfectly even score.
Cons : The screws do not hold the bar in place. The hot/cold water bath takes forever and then it separates horribly.
Other Thoughts : Waste of money and time.

  •   really disappointed
By on
Pros : Made of recycled material.
Cons : Plastic part that goes in the bottle top doesn't stay on the cutter or in the bottle, and you need a screwdriver in order to secure the components. Screws just spin in the holes when you try to tighten. Difficult to adjust have not gotten one good cut.

  •   Works Well But Use Candle
By on
Pros : I really like my Generation Green bottle cutter. I cut bottles to make bowls, bells, candle holders, etc. I get consistently even cuts, can adjust the height and width as needed, and get good results.
Cons : Do not separate the bottles using water baths as the directions say. It does not work properly that way- the bottles split unevenly. If you use a candle flame you can direct the break properly. Heat the entire score mark first, then concentrate on one inch at a time, directing the flame where you want the glass to break.

  •   Poor Quality
By on
Pros : When you have the height set it works ok, I was able to get pretty consistent scores.
Cons : Plastic part that goes in the bottle top is cracked, and you need a screwdriver in order to secure the components. Screws just spin in the holes when you use the wing-nuts otherwise.
Other Thoughts : I would like to see a replacement metal part for the part that goes in the top of the bottle, along with some thumb screws and a threaded hole.

  •   good cutter but...
By on
Pros : Successful cut with every bottle. Easy to use if you follow the instructions. Allows you to cut a variety of sizes.
Cons : The plastic tip that inserts into the bottles neck eventually broke. This piece is a poor quality piece of plastic.
Other Thoughts : The piece that broke could have easily been made of aluminum!

  •   g2 bottle cutter poorly put together
By on
Pros : Conceptually, the shape/design is user friendly.
Cons : However, I would definitely not recommend this glass cutter to anyone. The screws do not tighten completely and the top that fits inside to bottle to hold it steady is not even secured to the rest of the piece. This leaves so much room for error during the score that I receive a perfect cut only 10% of the time. And to break the glass evenly without it cracking, a perfect score must be made. If you are serious about cutting glass, I would search for other glass cutters. I support that this is made from recycled material, however I think more work needs to go into the design before anyone purchases it.

  •   Works right, but not sturdy
By on
Pros : Works well, scores the bottle just like it should.
Cons : The green plastic part broke with my first bottle, but it still works well enough.
Other Thoughts : The sand paper is pretty useless. I'm looking to buy a glass grinder to help grind down the sharp edges.

  •   Cant get it to work
By on
Pros : none
Cons : I can't get one good score. I have been doing stained and fused glass for years so I'm not new to cutting glass, and I cannot get this cutter to make one good score. Back and forth from cold to hot water did no good, rotating cutter heads, nothing worked.

  •   Dont waste your money
By on
Pros : I simply cannot think of any.
Cons : This product does not work as described. Does not score evenly or consistently. At best, two of every five bottles will separate correctly. Not worth the time or money.
Other Thoughts : I have unfortunately wasted more of my time with the g2 cutter and am here to tell you it is a big disappointment.

  •   Not happy
By on
Pros : Made from recycled materials.
Cons : Difficult to adjust. First one I ordered was missing a piece. Delphi did send out another, but the plastic piece that fits in the bottle top was cracked. Opened the first cutter box to use that top, but it too was cracked. Poor quality.

  •   Not impressed
By on
Pros : Made of recycled material which is great and doesn't take up much space.
Cons : Tried scoring at least 8 bottles before I got one clean cut...the next two also no good. The green part that goes into the bottle opening is cracked and doesn't stay on. Screws have to be tightened with a screw driver which would be okay if I only wanted to do one score at the same point on multiple bottles but it gets to be a hassle trying to adjust the height say if you want to cut rings.
Other Thoughts : I think this piece need a lot of improvements.

  •   Awesome Product
By on
Pros : I love how easy the tool is to score glass bottles with the tool. Good instructions and the product is made from recycled material...love that!
Cons : You need to assemble the product (however it's easy to do and they provide picture instructions). I'd also like to be able to cut small bottles with this.
Other Thoughts : Overall I'm really happy with the product and the price!

  •   getting there
By on
Pros : scores fairly easily, I like being able to score the bottle standing up instead of laying it down as with another cutter I have. Great for wine bottles
Cons :
Other Thoughts : It could still use some "tweaking". I cut all different kinds & sizes of glass containers, on ones that are not actual bottles, it is kind of a pain to get the top correct, especially if I do not have the lid!

  •   Works great
By on
Pros : Scores many types of bottles easily and accurately.
Cons : Tightening the screws becomes difficult, would be much better if there were thumb screws instead of screw heads. Would give 5 stars for that.
Other Thoughts : LOVE that this is all recycled and allows me to recycle. :)
