Durable, but difficult to grip and lots of sharp edges
This pastry cutter is sturdy and durable. However, it is difficult to grip, and slides around when you're working.
Cleaning is also a little trickier since scouring pad and sponge fibers tend to get caught in the rough edges. I recommend using a brush to scrub instead.
This item may be a good fit if you only need to use it occasionally. Otherwise, I recommend looking at alternatives with more comfortable grips, like the Winco PSTCO-7 (https://www.tigerchef.com/winco-pstco-7-pastry-blender.html).
+blades are rigid, and don't bend during use
+one-piece connection between blades and frame
+handle connection with the frame is done with screws. Budget cost pastry cutters typically use spot welds, which are prone to failure under stress.
-handle is uncomfortable, especially once it gets slippery (which it will if you're cutting butter into the dough). It should be a little bigger and have some texture on it to enable better control
Fit and Finish: 3/5
+blades are aligned out of box
+no traces of machine oil or manufacturing residue
-sharp edges on the frame
-rough edges on the frame and blades make cleaning harder since fibers tend to get caught
+at about $2, this is a good price for a budget pastry cutter especially since this one is so durable.
