Different people split pills for different reasons: some pills, especially daily vitamin supplements, are so large that they can be difficult to swallow whole. Oftentimes, pills come in only one high dosage version and you need to halve or quarter them to get a lower dose. Others split pills because it’s more cost effective, since higher-dosage pills frequently cost the same as lower-dosage ones.
No matter the reason, if you split pills regularly you have likely encountered many pill splitter pitfalls. When we began to investigate the task of splitting pills we quickly realized that this seemingly trivial task is actually riddled with problem.
We wanted to create a superior pill splitter. We designed a pill splitter that can split all pills of any shape or size, cleanly, accurately, and easily. It employs a non-steel/non-razor durable plastic poly blade so it’s safe and won’t easily wear down. And you don’t have to worry about it rusting if it gets wet so it’s easy to clean.
We made it adjustable to all pill types, easy to hold and press, and at the same time fun to use and beautiful to look at. We hope that when you use Chop, you’ll get into the ritual of snapping your pills to size and use the moment to stop, breathe, and think on the importance of your health and the time you invest in ensuring your healthcare is accurate, non-wasteful and… just plain fun.

how much force needed?I have arthritis in my hands and have trouble pressing. How much strength is required to chop pills with this?From: bambi | Created on: 5/2/12
Thanks for your question. Chop requires very little pressure. How? The chopping mechanism distributes weight evenly over the wide surface of the Chop cap, so you need only lean on the chop cap lightly with the heel of your hand to chop pills cleanly and safely.
No blade?That's an awesome safety feature, especially for me. Little kids running around. Question - does it really work tho?From: Fire544 | Created on: 5/2/12
Thanks for your comment! Yes it most certainly works. The "blade" is made out of super-durable plastic and chops pills cleanly with very little effort applied. The #1 benefits, of course, is that it's both cleanable (won't rust) and is kid-safe!
Just got it and love itNot often motivated to write up a product but this one is really great. Very easy to use and cuts pills really cleanly. Thank you Sabi!From: Andy | Created on: 5/1/12
