I bought one of these can openers for work It has actually lasted over a year which is a record at work.People are very rough on things there.They are not careful with things that are not theirs or they did not buy.I am going to buy one for my home soon.It grabs hold of the cans immediately and you don't have to hold the can.I like the fact that the top comes apart easily for cleaning.I would definitely reccommend tis can opener to everyone.It runs very quietly and smoothly.If you are looking for a decent priced can opener and one that works well 'buy this one
This opener tips over if you open a can larger than a tuna can. You must old on to it the whole time, or you end up with a mess. When it tips over, it keeps opening the can.
If that doesn't bother you, I guess it is a good opener, as it does actually open the can, (very......very.......slowly).
I would not buy this product again.
I am very satisfied with this. Easy to use, no hiccups whatsoever. The cubby to hide the cord is also great to keep the counter neat.
