Product Description

Color: White

The Kuhn Rikon Slim Safety LidLifter safely and easily removes lids, leaving a smooth edge that is suitable for resealing with a plastic lid (dog and cat food cans, coffee cans). The can opener is made of 18/8 stainless steel with a polished finish and the turn knob is comfortable to hold and turns easily. It cuts from the side leaving the rim smooth, not sharp or jagged. The tiny jaws of the exclusive Lid Gripper clamp onto the lid rim and lifts off the top. The turn knob is of a durable soft rubber so it is comfortable to hold and turns easily. Slim design for convenient storage.

I've enjoyed my Oxo can opener that leaves no sharp edges for a year or so, and the only thing I didn't like was the way it couldn't open rectangular cans, because it's side-mounted handle would hit the can, and stop the entire opening gprocess till it was restarted an inch or so away from the corner.

I saw this Kuhn Rikon sllim safety one, and it had it's handle on the top, not the side...Bought it, tried it on seveal cans, and it's the easiest one to open can with!

It opens along the seam, rather than actually cutting, and at first, after "going round" the top of a can, it doesn't look any different. Then, grip the top edge of the can with the side "pliers" on the can opener, and the entire top lid comes off! If you are so inclined, you can easily put teh top back on, and it stays!

This is easy on the hands light weight, and seems to open easily any can I offer to it!

Very safe for kids, as it doesn't leave sharp or ragged edges as with the can openers that have been around for over 30 years.

I'm giving my Oxo to Salvation Army!

I really like that this can opener doesn't leave sharp edges. It takes a few tries to figure out how to use can opener but once you get the hang of it, it's super easy to use.
You do need to use an old styled can opener for some things (such as tuna) because with this opener, you aren't able to use the lid to drain off the liquid in a can.

Not that there way anything wrong with the first one, which I had for over three years, but this is the second Kuhn Rikon opener of this type that I've owned. Having brought my cat along, when on an extended visit with friends, I had brought the opener with me. Those folks were so impressed by it that I gifted it to them and bought another. It's the only type can opener I plan to ever own and it's marvelous in all regards. NEITHER THE LID NOR THE EDGES OF THE OPENED CAN ARE SHARP, and by simply placing the top back on the can, it appears to still be sealed, which is marvelous for putting an opened can of pet food in the fridge or for hiding small items, such as valuables. I really can't say enough about it and would MOST HIGHLY RECOMMEND this product to all.

Over the past year I've been quite satisfied with this opener. It stays clean and there is no risk of being cut (though it is possible to pinch yourself with the pliers). It doesn't produce a re-sealable can, however, so don't expect that. You'll also probably need a metal can colander, which you'll find is better than draining around the cut lid anyway.

But...since you are pulling the lids off rather than just cutting through them there can be problems with some cans if they are dirty or have labels or deformed lids obstructing the opener's leverage. Normally this isn't an issue, and on rare occasions when the lid is only partially separated you can still pry it open, but I have a lot of difficulty with my favorite brand of tomato paste, not because the can is small, but because the edge of the lids is sort of mashed over when they are sealed. Note, I am still able to get at least one end of even these clumsily-made cans open, but it is a struggle. So you probably won't want to use it, but you should keep your old can-cutter around.

We've used this for 5 years. Works nicely. Doesn't get slimed with tuna juice, soup, etc.

PROs:

* Stays clean - no slime, no clean-up!

* Stays sharp

* Trouble free

- no sharp edge on opened can

CONs:

* Doesn't work on some cans (rare - evaporated milk, for example)

- Learning curve the first time you use it

I asked for this for Christmas because I like gadgets and because using the same "regular" can opener for cat food and my food was pretty gross.

It's true that it's VERY confusing to figure out at first. The instructions are not clear at all. Just open it up and look on the underside. There is a rubber "traction wheel" and a geared "cutting edge." You want to put it on the can so the edge of the can is pinched between those two wheels when you close the handles. After you figure this out, it becomes clearer how to line up the little arrow on the top to position it correctly from then on.

There are little metal "beaks" on the side of each handle. Don't confuse these with cutting edges. These are the "pliers" that you use to easily lift the lid off after opening the can.

Once you have that figured out, this is easy to use and above all CLEAN. I'm very satisfied with my new toy. I understand from reading elsewhere that it has a limited lifespan and will stop cutting and need to be replaced eventually. I like it enough that I won't mind doing so when the time comes.

This can opener is advertised as dishwasher safe which was a big plus for me. However, no where on the packaging does it say dishwasher safe. On the back of the packaging is a little picture of a dishwasher with a black slash across it. I think this means that it's not dishwasher safe. I even emailed the manufacturers and here's what they said about it:

"We do not recommend putting any of our safety lidlifters in the dishwasher. The best cleaning method is to use a soft, damp cloth."

So where does amazon get the idea that this is dishwasher safe???
