Different people split pills for different reasons: some pills, especially daily vitamin supplements, are so large that they can be difficult to swallow whole. Oftentimes, pills come in only one high dosage version and you need to halve or quarter them to get a lower dose. Others split pills because it’s more cost effective, since higher-dosage pills frequently cost the same as lower-dosage ones.
No matter the reason, if you split pills regularly you have likely encountered many pill splitter pitfalls. When we began to investigate the task of splitting pills we quickly realized that this seemingly trivial task is actually riddled with problem.
We wanted to create a superior pill splitter. We designed a pill splitter that can split all pills of any shape or size, cleanly, accurately, and easily. It employs a non-steel/non-razor durable plastic poly blade so it’s safe and won’t easily wear down. And you don’t have to worry about it rusting if it gets wet so it’s easy to clean.
We made it adjustable to all pill types, easy to hold and press, and at the same time fun to use and beautiful to look at. We hope that when you use CHOP, you’ll get into the ritual of snapping your pills to size and use the moment to stop, breathe, and think on the importance of your health and the time you invest in ensuring your healthcare is accurate, non-wasteful and… just plain fun.
CHOP is made by Sabi:
This works great for oblong shaped pills... like Tylenol or others in that shape. As you can see from the padding on the inside to nest the pill it, that is truly what it's designed for. Does it work with other shaped pills? Yeah, but the cut isn't as even. Does that make it less awesome? Nope!
I used it without problem to split different shaped and types of pills. Each one was easy to do and the result was a nice cut, better than if I was trying to break it with my hands- possibly crumbling it between my fingers.
If you need a pill cutter around the house, this is a good one. I wasn't too worried about the kids cutting off digits either. So I recommend it for those that need a nice pill cutter... and for those that think they don't need one... one day you'll wish you had one... just saying.
