After having a love affair with my Craft Robo for 18months or so I decided although I did love him I wanted something with a bit more oomph!!! I searched the Internet and read all about various machines. I fancied a Bosscut Gazelle but they aren't available in the UK unless you ship them in yourself from the US. Not ideal as if something goes wrong, it can be a pain. Then after looking in to the pazzles I made my mind up that this was the one I wanted. After a carry on to get it from a UK supplier (who will remain unnamed) I am tempted to name and shame but I won't. My lovely pazzles arrived. She is quite a bit bigger than my robo but by goodness is she quieter. And boy does she do as she is told. I have cut fun foam thick and thin on it to make finger puppets and a mask for my little boy, glitter card, thick card and mirri board all cut like butter. She cuts bigger, better and I know exactly where she will cut. Love her to bits. Not tried embossing with her but I do have the tool for it but might need the mat. I think I will keep my Robo for print and cut projects, I have heard that the Pazzles does a print and cut but it doesn't have an optical eye . Will look into it further when I have time.
