The price reflects the quality of this can opener
on January 21, 2013
I fell in love with the one touch automatic can opener several years ago and when mine quit working a few months ago I searched for a replacement finding this at an exceptional price, but as in life sometimes when a deal looks too good, it is too good to be true.
1. These are shipped from China so from the time you order and your credit card is charged expect to wait 5-6 weeks for delivery.
2. These are made out of cheap plastic and do not work like my original. I ordered 4 just to make sure I would always have one, but the first one I used would not open the can until after 5 tries. Then it would not stop, the can opener and lid fell off the can onto the counter and still kept running. I followed the directions of pushing the release button, but it kept running for about 2 minutes when it finally stopped and released the lid the can. Then when I picked up the can I got a splinter of metal which cut my finger. Truly this one was broken.
3. I did try the other 3 can openers I ordered and they worked OK, certainly not with the speed and efficiency that I expected but they opened the cans without incident and without metal splinters.
I would advise you to try a different manufacturer as these can openers are not the quality of the originals.
