Product Description

OXO SteeL Can Opener:

Our OXO SteeL Can Opener is a kitchen essential. Stainless steel blades make it durable, and the large, soft turning knob is easy to manage. Big handles feature non-slip grips and give you extra strength to pierce a can, and the oversized knob turns easily. The sharp cutting wheel is made of sturdy stainless steel. Our Can Opener also features a built-in bottle cap opener.

It’s the Little Things:

At OXO, we consistently develop products that address even the tiniest of pet peeves, because we know it’s the little things that make the biggest difference. We always design our products with Universal Design in mind, but we know that using a can opener can be one of the most difficult things to do if you have arthritis or hand injuries, so we took special care to design this can opener to be easy to grip and to turn smoothly with minimal effort.

Features & Benefits:

  • Comfort: Brushed stainless-steel handle has soft, non-slip grips to absorb pressure
  • Easy to use: Large knob turns with minimum effort
  • Cutting wheel: Sharp stainless steel teeth open cans easily
  • Multi-functional: Can Opener also has a built-in bottle cap opener
  • Cleaning: Hand wash only




  • Good Tip:

    Place leftover canned goods in an OXO LockTop Container to store in the refrigerator or freezer. Although it isn’t harmful to keep food in an open can after opening, doing so can impart a metallic taste to the food.





    OXO is dedicated to providing innovative consumer products that make everyday living easier.

    I grew up with electric can openers that inevitably broke or had a hard time attaching to the can, then the contents often spilled as I removed it from the magnetic holder. Back then the alternative was a hand-held manual one that was actually painful to use.
    After marrying we bought an electric can opener which broke soon thereafter. While waiting for the day when it was to be repaired (which ended up being never), I bought this OXO manual can opener thinking it would be a temporary and inexpensive solution. It is awesome. We have been using ours for about 5 years and it is still going strong. It is fast, easy to use, and comfortable. There is no pain or discomfort when holding it. It cuts the can cleanly and is just plain easier to use than electric can openers. We are sticking with the OXO can opener and not going back to electric openers.
    I highly recommend this can opener, ditch your electric can opener and make things easier on yourself!

    I'm a totally disabled Veteran. My wife is disabled also with a severe upper back and neck problem that affects her hands. She doesn't have much strength in her hands. This can opener is so easy for both of us to use! I believe it's because this product is very well made. It does a great job. I'm ordering another one. It makes a good gift also.

    As a former Chef I am picky about using only quality kitchen utensils, and I heartily endorse this can opener. Most manual can openers have a tendency to hang up or run off the lip of the can, but not this beauty. It stays on the lid without ever jumping off and has incredible ease of operation due to it's large mechanical advantage and handle construction.
    This may look like a cheap can opener from the local retailer, but it's ease of use, durability, and the fact that it is dishwasher safe (many aren't) makes this the best value for the can opener dollar imaginable.

    We've had this can opener for several years now. I still have one of our old, el cheapo can openers which I sometimes use if I can't find the OXO. The OXO is so much easier to use - it tracks the can rim without jumping off, it cuts the metal easily, knob is easy to turn. Also, I don't always get to drying my washing up quickly, but this can opener shows no signs of rust spots.

    I'm very happy with this can opener. It has extremely smooth action and is effortless to use...very easy on the wrist! I also like the fact that it's stainless steel so I don't expect it to rust as others have in the past. I read the reviews on this product before I purchased it and do disagree with a few of them. Although the can opener works great I have yet to have it completely detach the lid from the can. When the opener has gone completely around the lid there is always a tiny piece of lid attached to the can that I have to twist off. No problem as far as I'm concerned but I'm noting it because other reviews claim the lid is completely removed.

    This is the best can opener that I have ever owned. I have had it for 1 year and it has given me lots of use with no trouble.
    Its also very stlish and comfortable. I have Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and using gadgets like this can be difficult for me. This can opener requires less effort so its good for my hands!

    Started using mine a little over 1 year ago and mechanically it's by far the best working can opener I've used. Sadly, it's obvious that it won't be working for much longer because it's being eaten by rust! I've never washed it in the dishwasher. Since I've had so much trouble finding a can opener that does what it's supposed to in the past this one's been babied - cutting blades rinsed with white vinegar and hand-dried with a dish towel after every use but STILL can't keep the rust at bay. It started in the deep, narrow groove where one side slides into the other and it just keeps spreading. I've tried lightly sanding off the rust in places I can reach but it just keeps creeeeping and with each use the opener gets a little stiffer and more difficult to open/close.

    Perhaps a more conscientious consumer might've been able to foil what looks suspiciously like OXO's built-in obsolescence with a blow dryer and 15 minutes of can opener maintenance after every Starkist session but there are limits to what I'm willing to do in order to keep a product doing what it's supposed to do. Good thing Starkist also comes in pouches.

    ETA: After review, I contacted OXO customer service regarding the rust situation and they couldn't give real explanation as to why a "stainless steel" can opener was rusting so badly beyond a vague "it shouldn't do that" sort of response. I was asked to submit photographic evidence of rust in order to receive replacement. I did so without any real hope that replacement would be an improvement since OXO wasn't likely to fix a problem they weren't willing to admit even existed.

    When my old Zyliss gave up the ghost I looked about for a replacement. I have other OXO products and am pleased with them, so I gave this a flyer. On the plus side, it's sturdy and very easy to operate. However, I found that most of the time, about four cans out of five, it wouldn't cut the lid completely off. I'd be left with a lid slightly immersed in the can's contents and attached by a small strand of metal. I'd then have to get a small knife or fork to pry the lid out of the can and was still left with the task of getting the lid off the can without cutting myself.
    Based on the other reviews I'm figuring I just got a dud, so I'll replace it with another OXO opener, but not this one.
