Shari.....There is no reason they should break. I've never had one break in all the years I've had my BIGkick. But yes, they are a consumable item. After multiple uses they get so etched you can't see through them and this does cause the etching to mar your paper eventually also. This would be when you would replace them.

It is suggested that you have a spare set on hand for when needed. If you rotate your cutting pads and flip them over on a regular basis, you should get about 500 cuts with each set of cutting pads. I stock up on cutting pads when AC Moore has the Sizzix items on sale. You can also use a coupon in both AC Moore and Michaels for the Sizzix products, too.

Of course this usage will vary from person to person depending on your use.
