Needs perfecting.

I have been looking for a device like this; but after reading the reviews it deterred me from buying it. It sounds like it definitely needs tweeking and get better reviews. Grommet should think about if you want to continue offering it until it is successful.More > < Less


Poor results

8/30/2017 by AOEsq

So far my efforts to cut glass bottles with this device have been very poor. At first I thought my technique needed more practice. So far I have attempted several bottles and have yet to achieve anything close to a clean cut. I thought about writing or returning the product but frankly I haven't had time to do that yet. So for the time being I'm chalking it up to a bad purchase, I'll keep it around and see if I can make it work with other types of bottles but I'm not holding out hope. If there is anyone out there who is satisfied with this product I would appreciate any help advice suggestions.More > < Less


We finally gave up

8/19/2017 by Betty

We have a micro vineyard and winery and wanted to make candles from leftover wine bottles. Three days and 17 ruined bottles later we gave up. We never got one straight edge! And after scoring the glass, it was much harder to snap apart then in the countless videos we watched using the hot/cold water method. Perhaps the bottles in the videos were thinner than our green Chardonnay bottles?
This produce definitely did not work for us.

If Only It Were So Easy

The video makes it look so simple. It isn't! If the device is not PERFECTLY aligned, so that the cutter comes back EXACTLY where it started, good luck getting the bottle to break. I would not have bought this product if I'd known how difficult it would be.More > < Less

About Bottle Cutting Inc.


This easy-to-use bottle cutter transforms your bottles into a vase, votive, drinking cup, or candle holder . . .

Upcycle in just three steps. First, score the bottle, then separate the pieces using the silicone band. Lastly, use the high-grade sand paper to smooth to perfection.

Maker Patrick Lehoux wanted to create an easy, straightforward way to turn bottles into functional or decorative objects. After he had his first prototype, he named it after a small South American mammal with big, sharp teeth, the “Kinkajou.”

Much like the little Kinkajou animal, this bottle cutter is compact but efficient. We tried it out here in the office and found the process straightforward and also super convenient.

Start collecting bottles—this small hack opens up the possibility for all sorts of do-it-yourself projects.
