A cutting insert has a chip-control arrangement. The cutting insert includes opposing top and bottom ends and first and second side surfaces that extend therebetween and meet at a cutting corner having a bisector. The chip-control arrangement includes an elongated surface extending in an upward direction from the top end face, and also extending longitudinally to opposing sides of the bisector. The elongated surface includes a first and second extremity. The first extremity is closer to the first side surface than to the bisector, and the second extremity is closer to the second side surface than to the bisector.
