Too much surface area--gets stickyOct 11, 2009
By D. Harland
I love my Cricut, but this spatula really isn't worth the money. It was to designed to help you remove what's been cut off of the Cricut mats, and while it does help you do this, it also picks up a lot of the sticky adhesive from the mats, which can then interfere with the effectiveness of the tool for future cuts. I tried to clean it with finger nail polish remover (what I always use to clean stickers off anything) but it never really was like new again. Additionally, with normal use, the large spatula area became bent. I prefer my Creative Memories tool, that has much less surface area and does a better job of picking up my beautiful letters from the mats. My friends prefer using the "hook" tool that comes in the Cricut tool set. Cricut 29-0004 7-Piece Tool Kit for Cricut Cutting Machines

Needed..Sep 22, 2008
By Angela Christian
I kind of want to give this item a low review simply because I do not believe it should be extra. It should be something that comes with the machine.. But that has nothing to do with its purpose or function. I use mine all of the time. If I am cutting I am using the spatula to remove my cuts. It always works great and when I use it I rarely tear anything.
For thin papers or extra sticky mats this is a must!

MUST HAVE. Can do without all the other toolsDec 04, 2008
By Meagan Johnson
This spatula is a must have for the cricut. I can do without all of the other tools sold in their tool kit, as long as I have this one that only costs less than $5. Buy it, you will be glad you did!
For those of you who don't know, this tool allows you to remove cut pieces from the sticky cricut mat with more ease than any other tool I have tried.

A necessity for 3D printingOct 02, 2013
By K. Hecker
This is the best tool I've found for use in 3D printing. You need something to ease the print off the build plate without damage, and this does the trick.

Must have for Cricut CraftersMar 06, 2010
By Amy Y.
"Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?-- Mary Oliver"
I agree with another reviewer who stated this should be included with the Cricut. It is a necessary tool and prevents tears, particularly when cutting intricate shapes. It is also awesome for scooping up little cutouts that would otherwise be so stuck to the mat they'd be mangled. When I am cutting, I get annoyed trying to get cutouts off the mat without this tool- usually resorting to bending the mat and trying to catch an edge with a fingernail.
While I think this is a necessary cricut accessory, I also appreciate that it is sold seperately as I have purchased several. When friends come to craft or my kids use the Cricut with me, it is nice to have several on hand.
The spatula functions very well and the original one I bought still looks and works like new even after a couple years of use and abuse. This is not a great tool to clean leftover scraps off the mats, however. It is time consuming to pick individual pieces off the mat and cricut makes a triangular scraper tool that is much better for getting the little bits left behind.
Yes, Cricut is waging a war of attrition against the bank accounts of their loyal customers- but I've come to accept that its par for the course in the scrapbooking/crafting industry. Still, I do love my Cricut as it allows me to take my projects to a whole other level and I get a ton of use and satisfaction out of it making things for my kids classes, cards, invitations. If you have made the investment in a Cricut, it seems like it is more than worthwhile to drop a few dollars here and there for accessories that improve functionality and efficiency. This is a must have tool if you have a cricut.
