Question Round it all or Corner Chomper?

I'm looking to buy one of the heavy duty corner rounders, but don't know which one is better. Which one you do like - the Round-it-all or the Corner Chomper?

Thanks

I have the pink RIA and the Corner Chomper and have seriously never had to use the RIA. I was going to buy the blue one when the Corner Chomper came out and swayed me. I am so glad I waited....it's nice to have one thing do both. The only thing I don't like is opening and closing the CC....so I leave it open. LOL

Will the corner chomper also round just regular cardstock or is it too heavy duty to use for that? How thick can I "chomp" with the corner chomper?

Does the corner chomper do more than the RIA then?

Sorry for the many questions

The Chomper will do anything from one single sheet of plain paper up to thin chipboard...in MY experience. I am not sure how much thicker, because I haven't tried it out personally yet.

The RIA will shred a single sheet of paper, but does any thickness of chipboard and it is supposed to do tin as heavy as a license plate...WHY I would need that, I have no clue. LOL

Corner Chomper - hands down! Apart from anything else, you get two sizes on one tool 1/4" and 1/2"). If you want both sizes from a RIA you have to buy two separate tools.

The Chomper does go cleanly through a single sheet of cardstock as well as through heavy chipboard or multiple sheets of cardstock/paper. I've also tested it on an old credit card - works perfectly on that kind of hard and heavy plastic. Fine on acetate and leather too.

It uses the same gearing technology as the Crop-aDile so while it might not be good for anybody with arthritis or other hand problems, it takes what seems remarkably little pressure to get it to go through tough materials.

Thanks so much everyone! I do have hand problems but I can work my Crop-A-Dile, so I think I will go with the corner chomper that gives me two sizes.

Appreciate all the help!

Do most Michael's stores carry the Corner Chomper? I've checked at mine and they don't have it.

Have seen it at HL though.

I ordered the Corner Chomper from Oh My Crafts and just received it two days ago. I already consider it one of my must have tools.

My Mikes doesn't carry it either.

Another corner chomper fan here too. As the previous posters have said, it goes through thin paper to thick chipboard without any problem at all. I'm very happy with my chomper.

I also have the Scallop corner chomper... it's great.

wondered what i would use the straight 5 mini scallop edge for... but it's everyones favourite on cards as it looks different and you can use it for matting and layering to just add something.

The Scalloped corner is great too, and two tools for the price of one.

I use mine on chipboard and thick stuff too cuts about 6 sheets of card easily...

Everybody loves their Chomper....but I got a lemon. I never get a clean edge, I always have to trim or at least sand it.

Have you tried contacting We R Memory Keepers about it, Jansy? If it's defective, they may well do something about it for you.

Will have to have a look at both of the shape chompers.

Does anybody have the case found here Corner Chopper Case

I would love to know how many of the different choppers it can hold, or is it just one? Wouldn't make sense to hold just one though.

I like the corner chomper because you can round several layers at a time. You can't do that with a corner punch.

It never bothered me to use a regular punch on one layer at a time, for me the killer aspect of the CC is that you can easily and neatly round the corners on the scored edge of a card base. I could never do that with my regular corner rounder - I used to have to settle for only rounding the edges on the side opposite the fold. If you never want to do that and you don't use chipboard, then you don't need the chomper.

Yes, I hadn't thought to mention that, but this is a great aspect as well!

I have them all but one.

There is a new one that chomps corners in a different size to the original, this one is 1/8 and 3/8, this is the one tool set I use all the time.

Almost 2 years later, I am VERY pleased with my Corner Chomper(s) (I now own 2 styles). My favorite feature is being able to round the corners on my folded cards that are made with thick cardstock...I couldn't before, and it was worth it just to be able to do that!
