Hamilton Beach Smooth Touch Can Opener
Open cans smoothly and easily with the Hamilton Beach Smooth Touch Can Opener. An easy push down lever makes quick work of removing both pop-top and regular cans.
Unlike most can openers, the Hamilton Beach Smooth Touch Can Opener is designed so the blade cuts along the side and not into the top of the can. This minimizes the blades contact with food and prevents splashing or seeping out from the top since the can remains closed until you lift the lid. The result is a mess-free, smooth cut that allows you to remove the top without worrying about sharp edges along the lid.
The large ergonomic lever is easy for anyone to use. Operation requires little grip strength, just hold lever down until the blade has made a full rotation around the can.
With its sleek chrome and black design, this functional can opener blends well with other countertop appliances and makes a classic addition to your home.
- Opens pop-top & regular cans
- No more sharp lid edges - cuts can along the side for smooth, touchable lid
- Easy-touch opening lever - a light touch is all that's needed
- Sleek chrome & black design

This solves that and then some. I love how no food is touched and it's not sharp after being opened. It holds the can very well. I will say on some cans where you start, it doesn't open it completely. One pass is usually enough and you can tell by the sound when it has finished opening. Can't comment on longevity but will update later on.
My last "El Cheapo" electric can opener gave up the ghost only after less than a year of service. I saw the Hamilton Beach PoP Top Electric Can Opener here on Amazon and saw the price. It was more than I wanted to pay for an electric can opener, but considering the total cost of all the ones I have purchased before, it was more than the cost of the Hamilton Beach unit.
This can opener works as smooth as silk. You put the can under the holding bar, press the lever, and lo and behold, your can is opened without any sharp edges because it cuts the can from the side and not from the top. No more struggling with those stupid blades found on typical can openers and all the goo that clings to the blade after you open a can.
Since the top of the can you open just lifts right off, this also gives you a nice lid for the remaining contents when you put it in the refrigerator.
There have been some complaints that this model does not automatically turn on and that you, the user, have to depress the handle until the can is opened. I guess people are either lazy or have the attention span of a gnat because the whole operation only takes a few seconds. What else is so important that an individual cannot wait a few seconds to open a can? Another complaint is that the can opener doesn't turn off when the can is completely opened. This is another "non-issue" because the tone of the opener changes as soon as the can is open. It's not rocket science folks.
All in all, this is the best electric can opener that I have used. It is easy to use, reliable, and should last a good long while. The price tag may make you hesitate, but if you've gone through several electric can openers that have failed you, the cost of the Hamilton Beach will pay for itself.
As a side note, teachers will love this can opener because the lids of the opened cans fit right on top of the can (no sharp edges). This makes for some handy containers for pencils, pens, crayons, and other classroom materials.
