Does what it is supposed to relatively well.

Good

Works well but a little difficult with my arthritic hands. I can still manage to use it.

Not bad

There’s a little struggle sometimes but works fine most of the time. Good if you have strong hands.

Open Blister Packages

6/26/2019 by Dan

This gizmo is terrific at opening those confounded blister packages. However, you should note that you have to get the opener out of its own blister package first.

Okay for Some Things

I really don't feel this works as well as the older-style "scissors" for opening plastic packages.

IF you only have a plastic package to open with no surrounding cardboard, this works well. I find that with the surrounding cardboard, I don't have enough oomph to push it through.

For all plastic, it works great.

Very handy!

Works well. Hopefully, this will keep us out of the ER.

OK, but not great

This device seems to work OK on packages with a flat edge, although difficult to push. I don't think it will work at all on bigger, more 3-D packages.

50/50

This is 50/50 so far ~ worked one time; didn't work one time.

Will get easier with testing

11/7/2019 by Judith

really happy to receive this new item, but unfortunately it does not work as easily expected....not giving up on it as yet as I'm hopeful that it is just me and not the Slit-it, as I bought several to give as additional Christmas gifts.
Do hope to get a better grasp on using this item as I'm sure it will end the difficult task of opening many items that are purchased in the future

The Slitit Story

SlitIt | Plastic Package Opener

The Cutting Edge

The Slitit clamshell opener was born out of frustration, a word often used when talking about this tricky type of plastic packaging. Maker Caitlin Schwartz struggled to open a packaged hair straightener and even injured herself in the process. She paired up with her sister Kirsten—a fellow fine artist—and their mechanical engineer father to create a better-working and safer solution.

Slitit’s stainless steel blade is molded into a contoured, tubular handle. This design choice was a deliberate one. The handle gives you a good grip on the task at hand, plus it protects your actual hands from cut
plastic shards while you’re slicing away. Best of all, this cutter is simple to use. Just line it up, push or pull along the problematic packaging, and rejoice at how much easier that was. Read More Read Less
