Mine does that to, I figured out it's the way I was cutting it You'll have to play around with different angles in cutting it. I also use a glass cutting board to cut on, seems to help me. I'm sure others will share some tips too.

I tried the different tips that came with it, and it seems as though the thin pointy one works the best. I bought it from walmart for $7, so I guess you get what you pay for. I know I am not explaining myself very well, but I would appreciate any tips you guys could give me on how best to use this thing, or what would be a better one to buy?
