Sabi Chop and Crush Reviews

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
Are you one of the nearly 70 percent of Americans on at least one prescription medication, like me, or more than 51 percent that take two prescription medications a day? According to the new study by the Mayo Clinic, one out of every five patients are on more than five prescription medications that are taken daily. That doesn't even include the vitamins and other supplements many of us take every day.

In another review I mentioned that Sabi has created a lot of innovative and very neat looking products for pill storage. Here are two more products that they sent me to try out!

The first product I tried is the one in the front in the image above. It is the Chop. Basically it is a pill cutter.
Here's a little about Chop:
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.

For larger pills I really like the Chop, but for smaller sized pills it can be a little problematic. They are too small for the cutter to not crush up or break up the pill. That's a problem for me since the pill I am prescribed is small to begin with and I have to cut it in half for my dose. But like I said, with larger pills it works great.

The second product I tried out I just love! I have a dear friend who has a horrible time swallowing pills. Sh struggles with it every day. I have seen her sit with her pills and a cutter cutting and re-cutting and cutting again to get them small enough for her to swallow. This is the perfect answer for her, especially since she has trouble with arthritis.

Here's a little about the Crush:
CRUSH is for people who don’t like taking pills or who have difficulty swallowing them and instead choose to crush medications into a powder and ingest them in food and drink.
Most pill crushers on the market require repeated twisting and untwisting to get the job done, and can be very difficult on the hands. In addition, most pill crushers out there can only crush small pills and cannot handle turning larger pills into powder. Finally, we couldn’t find one single pill crusher that doubled as a pill box.
So, we created a pill crusher with real muscle that does most of the work itself and is ergonomic and easy on the hands and wrists. CRUSH quickly and effectively crushes all tablet types of all size, shape, and texture. And it’s a self-contained, all-in-one crusher-and-case.
CRUSH is easy to clean and fun to use. We hope that when you use it you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how little it makes your hands work. We hope it will inspire you to take a moment to stop, listen to the snap and crunch, and appreciate the strength it takes to stay healthy.

Your pills store easily in the top and are sealed in safely. When you need to break apart a pill you place it in the bottom and slowly screw on the top. As it screws into place it crushes the pill, so you can crush it or break it apart a little or a lot!

Again, these are products that I am really impressed by. Although there are little things I may not like, overall the products are very well made and work great. The innovation and number of designs to fit specific needs are awesome. Check them out for yourself!
