Product Description

With the Kuhn Rikon Auto Safety LidLifter it is now possible to open a can and never, ever touch the lid. All you do is place the opener on the can and begin turning the comfortable knob. The tool automatically locks in place. The tool cuts from the side leaving a rim smooth, not sharp or jagged. The tiny, strong jaws on the side of the opener remove the lid. Press down on the white button to close the jaws on the lid and when you are ready to drop the lid into the recycling container, just release the button. Safe, ergonomic and just plain cool. 7-inch Red with Stainless Steel Handle

Amazon.com

The Deluxe Safety LidLifter is the perfect 7-inch kitchen tool for anyone tired of dodging the jagged edges of cans and lids. Unlike conventional openers, the Safety LidLifter cuts into a can below the rim of the lid, so there are no sharp edges, the blade never touches the food, and the final turn of the crank doesn't inconveniently drop the lid into the can's contents. The turning mechanism works smoothly for both right- and left-handers, and the soft turning knob provides a comfortable grip. Best of all, the cute puffin-beak-shaped lifting clamp means you never have to touch a lid. --Emily Bedard

My wife and I find this to be the best can opener we have ever used; we even use it to open cans that have lift top lids (such as Del Monte canned sliced peaches). Why this can opener is so good is because of how it works and the quality of the product. It is made like a Swiss watch; there is no slop in the movement.

It is different than a traditional can opener which you place along the side of the can top and it cuts off the top. This can opener you place on top of the can and it separates the top of the can from the can cylinder. Contrary to the language used in the Amazon review, the can opener does not depend on cutting. The Kuhn Rikon Safety Lid Lifter depends on breaking the seal between the lid and the can.

The knob that you turn rotates a knurled wheel. When pinched on a can, it is forced into contact with the inside edge of the can lid. The wheel of the can opener that is on the outside is set at a slight angle that causes a lifting action to break the bond between the can and the lid.

Initially, you turn the knob clockwise; when the opener has gone completely around the top of the can and you detect a drop in force, you then turn the knob counter-clockwise and the lid lifts away from the can. Typically, there are no sharp edges because nothing has been cut.

If you want to see a good picture of the mechanism, look at the lower price model. To see this, click on other products by Kuhn Rikon. You will be able to go to a picture that shows the opening mechanism and will see the very slight angle on the wheel opposite the drive wheel. This wheel does all the magic.

Because of my fascination with this can opener, I have examined a lot of cans that were opened with this opener.

When we first got this unique tool, my son and I thought it was defective. The mechanism glides so smoothly around cans, it hardly seems to be doing anything...then we discovered the grip that lifts the lid off. I truly like the safety the lid lifter provides. Since we recycle our cans, sharp edges can really be a hazard; but we no longer have that problem. The lids even fit back on as though they had never been removed. This product is very well constructed, has an easy grip to turn (much more comfortable and easier to operate than a standard can opener), and seems to stay cleaner. The only drawback is opening large cans, particularly large cans of coffee.

This is the best can opener I have ever used in 35+ years of housekeeping! It stays clean, does not rust, stays sharp, is easy to turn (padded handle) and the can edges are so neat, you can put the lid right back on if you want to. I am buying this for gifts. Forget electric can openers that get so filthy and rust and get dull. This one is perfect and I expect it to perform for years and years.

My husband drove me nuts looking for one of these, we looked everywhere for one. I finally found it at Amazon, I have tendinitis, and cans are so much easier to open. Dented cans would torment me with pain, but this can opener glides over any dent, cuts through good, and is not hard to turn. I expected with this sort of can opener, cans such as coffee cans, I would not be able to return the plastic lid to the can because of the way it cuts. I was wrong, the lid goes right on with no problems. The only disadvantage, is that if you want to drain things such as tuna fish, the lid isn't real easy to keep in place so that you can do so. All in all I would have to say every home should have one.

My Rösle Can Opener, which I have used and loved for the last five years, broke recently and I found myself in the market for a new can opener. I replaced it with the Kuhn Rikon because it was significantly cheaper.

To be honest, these two openers are similar and both simple to use but if I had it to do over again, I'd spend the extra dollars. I preferred the Rosle quite a bit but this one is still good. The main reason for my preference is that the Rosle, after cutting the lid from the can, keeps hold of the lid so you can lift it off simply by lifting the can opener. To drop the lid, you simply turn the handle backwards a quarter turn and the lid is released into whatever receptacle is waiting below it. The Kuhn Rikon add's a step - although it seems similar in the way it removes the lid from the can, you must first turn the handle a quarter turn back to release the can from the can opener (leaving the lid on the can). The Kuhn Rikon does have a little built-in tweezer-like attachment that you can use to pluck the lid off the can but I still prefer the streamlined Rosle.

That said, the grip is excellent, the handle easy to turn, and I, frankly, like the fact that it's red - I can see it in the drawer even when it's buried under a dozen other gadgets! :)

If you can bring yourself to spend almost $40 for a can opener (and it's worth every penny), then I recommend the Rosle. If these economic times make you want to save money where you can, then this is a very good alternative for half the price.
