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.

For the most part, it works great. It cuts the lid off neatly along the very top side (a higher side cut than battery can openers that I've used) and leaves a smooth, safer cut edge. I'd never much cared for the side-cut openers before because liquids inside the can seemed to spill more easily with the lower edge, so this higher-cutting model is much better IMO. The opener is super easy to use. The top push-down lever depresses easily and the magnet on the opener holds the can securely in place while it's cutting. With some cans, the lid easily lifts off when you remove the can from the opener's magnet -- other times, I have to apply some side pressure to break the vacuum seal before I can easily lift it off.
Unfortunately, though, I occasionally encounter a can that it simply doesn't cut. Not many, but it's frustrating when it happens. The can does its full rotation as if it worked but the lid is still intact afterwards. It doesn't seem to have anything to do with size or diameter of the can top but is sometimes affected by the paper label around the can so I've gotten some of the recalcitrant cans to cooperate by peeling off the label. But sometimes I can't find any way to make it work and I have to settle for the old manual opener. I would have rated this opener 5-stars except for the fact that, while it opens most cans, it doesn't open them all.
Bottom line: This can opener works great on opening *most* cans. If you don't mind encountering the occasional can that it won't open, you'll probably be happy with it.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The directions say to only allow one full rotation. I found that this is important because if you allow it to continue making rotations, it cuts long narrow slivers of the can which are noticeable when you remove the top (looks like a tiny strand of steel wool). I'd worry about some of those metal slivers possibly getting into the food without people's awareness. So I make note of where I begin cutting so that I know to release the lever when it reaches that spot again. I end up with a smooth cut then. (Also, the opener usually makes a bit of a different sound when it reaches the point it's already cut.)
Having received this can opener in September 2016, I could immediately tell it was solid, quality built and designed for long time use. It works great, simply, and VERY QUIET in operation. Top quality in every aspect, including the push-in-out retractable cord, which is a real plus for kitchen counter use.
I got tired of pulling the tab opening can lids and feared for a cut from the sharp edge, and also the old style can opener leaving messy and sharp edges which were not safe laying around due to sharp metal edges. This new can opener solves all those problems perfectly.
I just renovated my kitchen and used dark cabinets, and stainless steel appliances. This Black & Chrome finish can opener blended in real well.
The can opener is what you would design in your mind as having every feature a High Quality Can Opener would have, well designed and solidly built. That’s what we need more of in the world. Great job Hamilton Beach. Five Stars in every respect.
