Very disappointed. On the very first use, a can of tuna proved too much for this thing to handle. Gripped on and ran around the edge, but all it did was put a very minor groove, roughed up the top of the can,and made a bunch of tiny slivers of steel.
Really liked this Can Opener, well at least I did for the 1st week. After the 1st week everytime I try to use it it doesnt open the can the whole way and leaves these thin metal shreds all over the top of the can and my counter. It makes for a huge mess and Ive had to throw out a couple cans as I wont take the chance that the shreds have made the way into the food. So this thing is no longer in our drawer. Really wanted to like this and was hoping to have this for a long time but guess we see how that worked out
I wish I could write a good review of this can opener but, alas, I cannot. The first time I used it it worked fine. It opened four cans splendidly, safely and I was delighted. That was the last time it worked. The very next time I tried to use, I COULD NOT get it to work. Since I was making dinner and had a canned ingredient, getting into the can was essential, but try as I might I couldn't get the opener to open the can. It was like it wasn't gripping or something. Worse, as I kept at it, the attack generated little metal shavings and splinters and one managed to get into my finger where it still resides. I know a lot of people have had a good experience with this device and I might be an outlier, but I am going to have to send it back.
UPDATE: The company replaced the defective one and the new one works fantastically well. Opens the cans safely and reliably. Great. Will probably use this as a stocking stuffer for some of my cooking family this Christmas.
