New "Premium" Saran Wrap with Cutter from Hell

Is anyone but me annoyed that the geniuses at S. C. Johnson have ruined Saran Wrap by adding a razor-like cutter on the box? I was a faithful devotee of regular Saran Wrap. It always performed great, never stuck to itself. I had no problems pulling out the wrap and with a flick of my wrist cutting it against the serrated edge of the box. Now I have to hunch over the box, lining up my plastic wrap exactly right and forcefully sliding the cutter through the wrap to make it cut. At least 50 percent of the time the wrap catches in the cutter and bunches up into accordion pleats so that it's impossible to cut and I have to throw it away.

Although I must say with the poor performance of the cutter I'm having to go through much more wrap which may be the objective on the part of the nice folks at S. C. Johnson.

Anyhow, I'm one pissed-off mama and have to strike Saran from my regular shopping list. What do the Chowhounds recommend as an alternative?
