I'm writing this review because of possible confusion between the Deluxe and Ultra versions of this pill cutter. I have owned both.
The Ultra version, which is less than half the price of the Deluxe version at the time of this review, is the one with the blue pill grabber and the blue lid. Other than the price, the advantages of the Ultra over the Deluxe are twofold: the Ultra has a larger capacity for halved pills (if you leave the pills in the cutter after halving, as I do), and it has the blade guard. The blade guard is a piece of plastic that not only covers the blade when the cutter is open, but also helps keep the cutter closed when not in use. As pointed out by other reviewers, the downside is that the blade guard is prone to failure, and once that happens the cutter does not close tightly - this also happened to me after about 1 year of use (cutting one tablet every two days), which led me to purchase the Deluxe.
Pros It has a very sharp blade, and the orange part that holds the pill is just a bit tacky, so the pill stays in place very well. I had no trouble cutting pills (round) very evenly in half. I cut 60 pills in half and the blade was as sharp on the last as the first. I expect this will last me at least a couple of years. The body is sturdy plastic, and does not have any flimsy feeling components.
Neutrals Without the blade guard, you must be careful when cleaning it. It also doesn't have a spring action to automatically close it, so you must manually close it when cutting pills. I desired this feature; my previous cutter did have the spring action, and once it broke the cutter was useless.
Cons It's very tiny - much smaller than I expected. I can only cut about 10 pills at a time before I have to empty it. I found that due to the small receptacle, as it became full I would close the device more gingerly so as not to disturb the small hill forming -...
This pill splitter works very well, and the halves of a split pill drop easily into the storage compartment. It handles fairly large pills. However, I take one pill that is a bit too big for this splitter (2.3 cm or just over 7/8 inch). Even if I jam it in there, it won't fit entirely in the orange splitting area, so the blade doesn't quite reach the far side of the pill. It still splits the pill, but not quite as cleanly.
I stopped by a CVS Pharmacy and picked up their CVS brand splitter, which I believe they also call a Deluxe Pill Splitter (about the same price as this Apex model; photos attached; not available on Amazon as of 5-23-15). My largest pill fits easily into the CVS splitter, and there's a slide that easily centers any size pill and holds it in place while it is being split (this Apex model has no such slide, but relies on the orange material being a bit rubbery/tacky). The only thing I like better about this Apex model is that you can tilt the splitter and...
