Monument Tools Automatic Pipe Cutter 15mm
Plumbing gadget of them all
I have both the All metal and plastic Auto-cut versions and neither give any problems. The reason for obtaining the plastic version, was not the price, but is due solely to it being warmer on the hand in the winter/cold weather, and allows you to grip it longer.

Good but be Careful of flats
A good cutter in tight spaces. Make sure you keep an eye on the directional arrow but more importantly it can cause a flat on your pipe when clamping it shut if your pipe is not perfectly square with the cutter.

No good for cutting pipes!
As the function of a pipe cutter is (obviously) to cut pipes, this has to receive a 1 star rating.
To elaborate, it *does* cut the pipe but it leaves a 'flat' spot on every single cut end which ruins the pipe.
I've tried turning it clockwise, anti-clockwise, reversing the cut, not reversing the cut and it makes no difference.
I ended up with a nice collection of pipe bits, each with a 'flat' on the end which made them unusable in any sort of joint.
Perhaps this one is from a bad batch - whatever the reason, it's going back to Screwfix as soon as possible,
