Hands down, we have to give it to QEP 10600 for the best tile cutter. Not only it is suitable for different tile materials, but it also cuts like a champ as long as you clean any leftover debris before cutting each every tile. This tile cutter has pro-grade quality and if you are a serious DIYer, this is a good investment.
Another thing that makes the QEP 10600 stand out on this range is its ability to cut 24 inches in length and 18 inches diagonally for tricky, oddly shaped walls. Its wide base is built with heavy-duty rubber pads that can withstand a lot of tile work. The large handle also makes it easier to use consistent pressure when cutting.
A great runner up would be the QEP 10630Q. For its price, you get a large 24-inch cutting surface, which is generally suited for most tile sizes. If you are tight in budget, but needs a durable tile cutter, this one does not disappoint. The cutting wheel is long-lasting and could rip cut diagonally up to 16 inches for angled walls and tricky corners.
Although the QEP 10630Q garnered mixed reactions when it comes to cutting long, narrow tiles that are easier to chip, learning to apply the right amount of pressure will usually do the trick. We suggest that you try it first with a few sample tiles and proceed with your project once you get comfortable using the tool.
Finally, we suggest that you go for QEP 10600 if you have the money to spend on it. With replaceable 7/8 inch cutting wheel, this tool can last a long time. You can also use it for different types of tile materials. However, if you are on a budget, the QEP 10630Q will also deliver similar results and if you are focused on cutting ceramic or porcelain tiles only, this tile cutter is your best bet.
