Customer reviewsAlmost Perfect
It cuts 18 stainless like butter. for 16 mild, really have to have a rough cut no more than about 1 3 of an inch away so the metal can curl, otherwise it jams due to the thickness. Cuts very fast Gets hot, but understandable due to motor size. Very happy with it, esp compared to the price and space requirements for a comparable beverly shear.
