Can any owners of the Grand Calibur tell me "do you use both sides of the White Cutting Plate"?
 For some reason I have only used one side, so not sure whether to start??

I tend to use just the one side as I prefer to keep a pristine side as I find it marks the card if the plate has too many cuts on it.The pristine side is then used for mirror card, which shows marks.  Though I cant see why you cant use both sides..I dont use my calibur much as I feel it isn't strong enough and stick to the big shot unless I'm cutting or embossing A4.

I love my Grand Calibur....I had to look and yes both sides are used. If you use both sides they tend to stay flattened out, if you only use one side they tend to bend,

 Thanks ladies for your replies

Yes Val, this is exactly what I'm finding, the white plate is bending, so I think it's time to rotate.
Also I did find during my research that you should use both sides.

I used to use one side only until it started bending then used both - but -I then found that I needed a 'clean' side for white card and foiled card, so I treated myself to another plate for whites and reverse side for foil,
I bought a Gemini and have the original Cuttlebug but do still use my Calibur a lot, even had a good friend take it to bits and tighten up the inside of it as it became very noisy and a 'loose' feeling, its really good now  ( perhaps I should have done that before getting the Gemini but when I am feeling week that comes into its own.
