Works well - feel so much better!
I must lead off this review with a "shout-out" to the previous reviewer who reported that using just the cutting top of this gizmo on the kcups was the most effective method of separation. I wholeheartedly agree! The little basket that comes with this device is essentially useless - just use the cutting top and you'll be all set. In that regard, this product is terrific, and I was pleased to find an extra set of blades included in the package. We feel a lot better now that we can send the main plastic cups to the recycler and only the coffee, filter, and foil (and a tiny bit of plastic) goes to the landfill.

Buy it, but read this first!
I was excited about getting this recycler for two reasons. One, we recycle everything recyclable, and two, we have a composter, and coffee grounds and paper filters are great to compost. But when we got our Keurig it was a hassle to tear up the little cups and empty them out, so we usually threw them away.<br><br>The way this thing works: you put a k-cup in the base, line up the puncture hole in the bottom of the k-cup with the little point in the base, put on the top, squeeze the spring-loaded blades to puncture the cup, and turn the top a couple of times while continuing to squeeze to cut around the cup. The top lip of the k-cup with the foil top and the attached filter bag of grounds is supposed to lift off with the top, leaving an empty cup in the base which you poke out of the base with your finger via a hole in the bottom. Not difficult, but rather clumsy.<br><br>When I tried using it I was SO disappointed. K-cups are not all the exact same shape, and it only worked on one out of three that I tried--one brand of k-cups was wider and fluted so it didn't cut right, another brand was just slender enough that I couldn't get the blades to puncture the cup in the base. And, it took a few tries on the one that worked.<br><br>Then my husband tried it by holding a k-cup WITHOUT THE BASE in his left hand, and the top of the recycler in his right hand. He squeezed the blade buttons and instead of turning the top turned the k-cup. It worked like a charm on the other two cups, it was easy, and I'm excited about the recycler again! The paper filter with grounds in it pulls off easily to toss into the compost can. I can't give it five stars because it takes a workaround to be worth a darn, but I'll give it four because it makes the recycler/composter in me very happy.

Good Recycling tool
Although I did not quite get the instructions right the first time, use is now fairly easy. As there are several pieces to the device, I tend to collect a dozen or so K cups before putting it to use. I feel so much better about keeping the plastic out of the landfill and being able to more completely compost the coffee and the filter paper.

Very stiff to start.
I found this device a bit difficult to use in the beginning. It did improve after about 2 weeks of use. Also, it did not work on some K-cup products; however I found I could make it work by leaving the bottom of the device off and manually turning the top on the K-cup. In addition, the blade units would fall out of the top on occasion.<br><br>I would still recommend this product because i think any way we can reduce-reuse-recycle is a good thing.
