Product Review: Marigold 4-in-1 Rotary Paper Trimmer 12-inch

For years, I’ve carried from home office to home office a typical paper trimmer. I love having one around, even though I don’t use it a lot. It comes in handy.

However, it is big and bulky. Enter in Marigold’s 4-in-1 Rotary Paper Trimmer 12-inch, that cuts in four different ways: Perforation, score, wave, and straight.

Which would you rather have around the home office?

What I liked about the Marigold 4-in-1 Rotary Paper Trimmer

There are several things that I think are very cool about this paper trimmer.

It folds so that it doesn’t take up a lot of space when not in use. This not only makes it easier to store in my home office but will make it a lot easier to pack when I move in the future.

In addition, rather than just making one kind of cut like my old paper trimmer, I can now get creative and cut with a wave, score and perforated, as well!

In addition to all that, it is also safer. I had to be very careful that the arm didn’t fall on my fingers while using my old paper trimmer. With the Marigold 4-in-1 Rotary Paper Trimmer, I’d be hard-pressed to hurt myself while using it.

What I didn’t like about the Marigold 4-in-1 Rotary Paper Trimmer

I didn’t see the operating instructions until I had fiddled with it for a while. Then, after scratching my head, I noticed the single sheet of paper curled up at the bottom of the box. The result is that it took me a moment or two to figure out that it was folded. It also took me a moment or two to figure out what the different settings did. That was probably just because I was tired.
