Tile cutters are light, affordable and portable tools for cutting ceramic and porcelain tile. To use a tile cutter, you simply line up the the mark on the tile you wish to cut with the scoring wheel, and roll the scoring wheel across the tile (always score across the top/shiny side of the tile). You will be able to hear a distinct, and quite grating, sound if you are pressing hard enough. Larger tiles may require you to use your hands to break the tile, otherwise you use the tile cutter handle to press the arms on the tile and it should break quite easily. When cutting a relatively small number of tiles, a cutter is much easier to carry and setup than a tile saw.
